I haven’t given birth yet, but I’m curious to see what others have to say. I haven’t thought too much about buying a wrap, but I could always change my mind.

I can’t speak from experience, but belly binding has been around for a long time so I have to assume that it works.  My grandmother always wore a girdle after giving birth.  You probably don’t have to buy the belly bandit to get the results you are looking for.  I heard the “squeem” was a good product.

Also, I purchased “shrinkx hips” to shrink my hips back down to size after giving birth.  I heard they work well.  But I have been using the shrinkx hips belt to support my big belly in late pregnancy.  I wear it when I’m taking walks and stuff.  It really helps to take the pressure off.

@kelly105:  I can’t speak either but my mom said to wear a girdle too. She said that she did and it helped out a lot

My mom swore by a girdle! I bought the belly bandit, I’m 36 weeks not sure of how good it will work on me, however it comes highly recommended by my mommy friends.

In the hospital, they gave me an abdominal binder after my c-section and that thing has been amazing! I had considered getting a belly bandit when I was pregnant, but I am glad that I didn’t considering they gave me a free one in the hospital. 🙂 It has helped tremendously, not only in helping me feel like my insides aren’t going to fall out, but also in helping my belly go down. I was SUPER scared of how my belly would look post partum, but I am 10 days post partum right now and other than some loosened skin, I am pretty close to my pre-pregnancy belly size! Just gotta get that skin elasticity back, haha.

I had my baby 3 weeks ago and used/am using Belly Bandit. I think the concept works but I’m not thrilled with this particular product. I used to be a size 4 and I’m now fitting into my clothes that are size 6, and my body feels like ‘me’ again. Wearing the Belly Bandit does seem to have helped, and it just felt good too. After months of pressure from inside pushing out, it felt good to apply pressure from outside. It supports my lower abs. The thing I don’t like about the Belly Bandit is that it wrinkles and bulges in weird ways, so that it looks funny underneath of clothes. And after 3 weeks, I think either it’s stretched out, or I’ve gotten too skinny for it, because I don’t feel it as tight as I used to, and it’s as tight as it gets. I was also considering the Bellefit, but it was more expensive and shaped like underwear, and I didn’t want to leak blood all over it in the first few days. (sorry for gross TMI)

4 cousins, 2 aunts, my mother, and 2 grandmothers all vouched for the girddle. In my family it’s one of the gifts you receive in your baby shower. Oh your pregnant? Here’s a girddle for when the baby comes out and cocoa/shea butter for stretch marks while you get there.

@Mrs.KMM:  My mom had a similar one but in blue after my sister was born.
