Postpartum compression belt?

Do any of you recommend or have experience with any of these post-delivery binder belts? Are they really much different than if I just wore my maternity belly band that I already have? (I'm guessing that these post delivery ones must be more elastic-y, but I don't know...) Also how do you choose what size? The belly bandit page says you should measure your tummy at 8months pregnant and get that size! Is that true?

Re: Postpartum compression belt?

  • Last time i just used my maternity belly band and i felt good with that... it just felt like it was sort of "holding me together", and i could fold it in half or put on 2 if i wanted it to feel a little more snug.

  • I'm planning to use one of those medical grade ones, similar to the Gabrialla...

  • Last time I used a belly band, but this time I'm going to buy the real deal. I'm looking forward to some support.

  • I actually purchased the Gabrialla and have it packed away in my L&D bag. It seems like it's shaped better to fit a woman's curves. I would personally stay away from the belly bandit since it's so expensive and consumer reviews tend to be mixed.

  • Thanks for the advice ladies. What about the size? How did you choose what size to get? Or are you waiting till after delivery?

  • I have heard they are common in European countries...and lets face it, European's look a lot better than most Americans, I'm willing to try it :-)
