3rd Trimester

Do the hip tricks really work post-baby?

Hi,

I am preparing all my post-baby stuff and I have been reading about things to wear to get your body back. I have read to wear Spanx or the those tight hip-hugger devices to put bring your hips back into their original place. I was just wondering if these tricks work and if anyone else has heard about these things?

Thanks!

  • I never used anything like that after DS and I fit back into my pre-preg pants just fine.  You could ask on Babies 0-3 months or 3-6 months too.  Those boards are full of new moms so you might get more responses over there.

  • I think some people claim they work.  I asked my Dr about it last pregnancy and she said that your body will go back to whatever shape it wants to regardless of the girdles etc.  I had a c/s last time and the hospital did give me a girdle type thing to keep the stomach muscles in (sneezing coughing etc) but it was all for comfort and not for body shaping.

    this. I never did anything special and fit in all my old clothes after losing the weight. 

  • I agree with the others... but I did try one of those belly bandit's.... it was uncomfortable to wear but it did remind me to tighten my stomach muscles which were basically shot after pregnancy... I fit into all my old clothes when I lost most of the weight.  

     

  • My MW recomended s binder for pp because my rectus muscles are torn, so that will give me extra support, and if it helps slim me too, I won't argue!

  • After having DD, I just wore my pregnancy belly band for extra support.  I fit in to all of my old clothes within about 8 weeks of having the baby.
