I am here to tell you that if you only buy one thing for your post partum recovery, it better be the belly bandit. I started wearing it the day after I gave birth and have been wearing it everyday since then. Within a week I was already loving my post partum belly. Not only it helped with shrinking it, it also helped with the appearance. My belly looks less wrinkly than it did with Tman. I swear all movie stars must use this stuff as they snap back into shape within weeks.
I will let the pictures speak for themselves. I would have never in a million years shown anyone my post partum belly for months and here we are, I am not afraid to share. YAY belly bandit.
These were taken 3 days before I had the baby. Look at that belly holding a 7lbs baby
As far as the weight goes, It's been a pretty good ride too. I gained about 32lbs this time around and I've lost about 26lbs so far. I am not quite at my goal weight, I would like to lose another 10 to 15lbs but I think that might linger with breastfeeding and all. I don't care really, as long as my belly looks good :).
