I’ve had several coworkers and friends who have been swearing by belly bandit and different shapewear post-partum. But of course I looked up the different shapewaer for post-partum and got a bit overwhelmed! Some of them seem to be specifically geared towards c-sections, others seem to be more universal other’s have bamboo… so now I’m a little lost. I’m only hitting 35 weeks next week so I have some time yet, but I thought I’d ask others their opinions…
So moms who did use shapewear, which did you have? Did you like it/not like it? Would you recommend it?
Thanks for your help!

No personal experience yet, but I’ve read really good reviews of the Bellefit girdles. They’re a little pricier, but they seem to have better construction. I’m keeping this in mind to invest in one when the time comes. http://www.bellefit.com/

SadieBee: I like that they have the bundles so that you can have another size as your body changes. I used to be a small (not anymore!!) but they definitely help you with sizing a bit more than Belly Bandit. Thanks for the input!

I used the belly bandit bamboo and I did not like it! It was impossible to breastfeed in andd incredibly hard to even sit in! I’d wouldn’t recommend it

NewYearsEve: That’s good to know! I was looking at that one but I am planning to breastfeed. Maybe I should take that off my short list. Thank you!

Katie-Didnt: I used the bamboo Belly Bandit, and yes, it is hard to breast feed in it because it rides up and pushes your boobs up when you sit down. Other than that, I had no problems with it, and I feel like it helped my posture. I think it’s the reason my belly went down so quickly. I stopped wearing it probably by 5 weeks. At 10 weeks with no exercise, my tummy is flat again, but the skin is still a little lose when I sit down.
