Have you ever thought about how you are going to get back into shape after your baby arrives? Besides a great exercise routine – are there other tools you can use to help get your pre-baby body back quickly? If you have asked these questions, then this post is for you!
The Belly Bandit® is an abdominal compression binder designed to help you get your body back to its former self post childbirth.
Not only does the Belly Bandit help reduce uncomfortable uterine swelling, it aids in decreasing bloating caused by water retention, and gives additional support for your weary legs & back. And if you are breastfeeding, there’s a bonus… the Belly Bandit will help you with your posture during feedings, and may help to reduce the all too common back & shoulder pain sometimes associated with breastfeeding. Ultimately, the Belly Bandit will aid in getting you back to your pre pregnancy hotness faster than ever!
Belly Bandits didn’t exist when I had my son four years ago, but even if you had your baby a while ago (like me), the Belly Bandit can still help out! Although the manufacturer recommends wearing your Belly Bandit right after you deliver for 6-8 weeks, there is no reason why you shouldn’t wear it whenever you can or want to. Some additional benefits of the product are extra back support and improved posture. We all know that when you feel better, you tend to be more active. This may lead the way to more movement and in turn may help with exercise (and you can wear it while working out).
Now the good part….you look slimmer in clothing and feel better wearing those shirts that you stuffed away in the closet because you didn’t like those “extra rolls” or you promised to put it back on after you lost the “spare tire” around your waist. So even if you didn’t just have your little bundle of joy last week or event last month…every little bit helps.
So if you are pregnant, have a brand-new bundle of joy or even an older bundle or two! The Belly Bandit is for you!! The Belly Bandit comes in three varieties:
- Original – this is the good for everyone, affordable version that does the job just great!!
- Couture – this adds a little touch of luxury in your post-partum recovery! With beautiful patterns that only you can see, and made from a slightly softer material, this Belly Bandit will make you feel awesome!
- Bamboo – now this Belly Bandit is the Diamond of all the Belly Bandits. It is so soft you will hardly know you are wearing it. It is definitely the luxury model – and worth every extra penny!! Not to mention it’s eco-friendly too!
