All have been purchased on my own. Although…I’m certainly not opposed to trying any product for review, but it will be an honest review!
While I was pregnant with my first baby, I began researching how to shrink back after baby. I noticed a common theme kept coming up….tummy wraps. Now there’s all kinds, but I chose a few that I thought would get me going in the right direction. A large part of me was pretty sure this was just another gimmick. There’s so many products on the market to buy whether
for yourself, your baby, etc. I can’t believe the pregnancy and baby market now…it’s cray cray! How can we ever choose between all these products. Well, you have to so you choose based on celebrity endorsement, color, style or whatever your reason.
I purchased two as I had NO idea what would work and what size I’d be after delivery. I know what size I want to be, but……we all know how that goes. After delivery you still feel 5-6 months pregnant for a while after. So, I bought a Velcro and a hook style from 2 different companies.
Thank goodness I bought 2 different ones. I soon realized that one was great for everyday use and the other for working out.
The hook closure was best for everyday use and has 2 sizes, which is helpful. The larger size for right after delivery and as you shrink the smaller size. I found the velcro one to be best for working out. I can never get them lined up perfectly, so the velcro looks more bulky and
more frustrating. I could never use this as my everyday go to.
You are supposed to start wearing them soon after delivery and wear all day every day for at least 40 days. I have to be honest that I am NOT the best at wearing them I don’t find them 100% comfortable and they always show under my clothes. Therefore, I only use them from time to time. I do wear the Velcro to work out every time I work out, but take it off right when done and only some days do I switch to the hook closure.
Do they work? For me…yes they do! I also do not wear these in PLACE of working out I use them in addition to, in order to help achieve the results I want. Now, I don’t wear them as often as I should and they aren’t something I will continue to wear. I like to wear for the first 6 months after delivery until I get back to close to my regular, pre-baby self. I had to have an emergency c-section with my first and because my 2nd was only 17 months later, they suggested another c-section. I found these wraps to be uber beneficial for this. It helped take the pressure off my incision and also helped that extra skin that feels so wiggly right after. I also notice that when I wear them for working out and for casual wear that my stomach DOES show signs of flattening out. Now, this is a lot of excess water that we retain around our tummy’s at this time, but for me I feel they do work and even when I haven’t worn in a couple days I see the difference.
