Tried and True: Belly Bandit

4/04/2012

Pregnancy is an interesting experience.  Some people love it, some people hate it...some people like me are indifferent to it.  What I was not indifferent to is the toll that pregnancy takes on your body.  Things stretch and even with someone like me who gained the recommended amount of weight, watched what I ate, and had a healthy pregnancy, I was concerned with how well I was going to bounce back.  I'm happy to report, so far so good - 8 weeks out (has it really been that long) and I've only about 7 more pound until I'm back to pre-pregnancy weight and I just need to focusing on tightening up.  (Wohoo!) However, I do credit a lot of my shrinkage and bounce back to the use of the Belly Bandit.



Toted by many celebrities, this device promises to help shrink the belly, waist, and hips; adds support to upper body while breastfeeding; comforts the mid-section after a C-Section; helps the body lose inches faster; helps minimize stretch marks; adds support to the back and legs; accelerates the healing process; streamlines the silhouette to look slimmer in clothing; boosts self confidence; aids in decreased bloating and swelling; reminds you to utilize your core muscles; and helps to gently persuade muscles back together.

And I swear by it. I actually wish that I had documented my progress via pictures, but in the midst of adjusting to our new life, I didn't have the presence of mind to do so.  However, I will say that this is something I will recommend time and time again to all my soon-to-be mommys.  Well worth the cost.

  2. I used it too- and I do think it helps... It's hard to judge though considering I don't know what my body would have been like without it. Good for you for taking such good care of yourself!! Those 7lbs will fly off!

  4. I used it and hated it. I could still see it under my clothes. It made an odd bulge. Maybe I did not use it right and I also absolutely know I gained entirely too much weight. So those things may have played factors as well. It is good to know it does work for some people and that you loved it.

  5. I bought my BFF from the Belly Bandit website. www.bellybandit.com It was on special too! I LOVE it and I'm really glad I did my research. They have an area on there that helps you find the style AND size for your specific body...I'm short so it's hard to find things that fit me properly. I just followed their instructions. It worked for me and I'd do it all over again. Was worth every penny!

  8. Belly Bandit will help you to reduce uncomfortable uterine swelling. It also helps you with posture during feeding and reduces all common back shoulder pain.
