@LAGS:  

I have one! I used it for about two days. Personally not worth it. They aren’t cheap! I went back to normal without any binding help, plus it was the most uncomfortable thing I have ever worn!

I have a friend that loves her BB, but nobody else I know used one and they all look great.  I have also heard any compression garment will work, ace bandage makes a similar contraption for like 1/5 the price.  I would check amazon or google image for compression garments.

Well my daughter is 3 now, so I def have an older model. I agree with 

@shortcake15:  any compression garment will work. BB has just found a way to mass market and make money.

I never considered this but now I’m thinking I might get one of the Wink garments.

i bought something like it, never used it so a waste of $ for me – and my stomach looks the same now as it did before pregnancy, although I had a very small belly (due to a placenta issue, not ideal).  i suggest good ab exercises before and after pregnancy – prenatal yoga was great for that!

I don’t know much about them, but I’ve seen multiple women rave about them on the Runners World women’s forums.  So you might try a google search over there (the built in search sucks).  I’m not sure how much is the garment and how much is maintaining fitness before, during, and after though, since there would definitely be population bias on a forum like that.  But some women swore by them, and had six pack abs after like 4 kids!
