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.
