Hmm the only thing I had was a support band from the hospital as I had a c-section and with out it, I felt like my guts would fall out. Don’t think that is what you are talking about though…?

@MrsRose:  Are you looking for shapewear, something to help you look thinner after baby? I guess I just don’t know what you are looking for. I know they have support ones for when you are preggo and then shapewear afterwards to help suck in the left over baby fat. Sorry wish I could be more help.

Ok I see what you mean now. I had never heard of tummy wrapping so did some research and I guess it is quite common in other countries. I haven’t found any negative things just that they didn’t work for some but most said it helped. Something I am really interested in now. Even those that said it didn’t work they felt much more comfortable wiht them on post partum.

My boss was talking about this the other day. She said it was supposed to help put your hips back to the size they were pre-pregnancy or close to it, since your bones are still kind of stretchy for a while after birth and if you don’t “rope them in” you could end up being a bigger size just because your bones never go back in. She said it helped her fit back into all her old clothes.

I have heard about these too and as I really could do without having a bigger anything (especially hips) I am definitely interested!  I heard they could be bad for you too though but it was just something someone said so I don’t really know.  I would be interested to find out too.

Go to a maternity store they have a few different options & can’t help you decide which one is best for you.
