Re: Post baby stomach binder...

I have a custom made one similar to this one It's not made specifically for postpartum use but I figure that it will do the job since it already has all the boning and support that I'd be looking for in a stomach binder and it's already in my closet


Dear Baby in my Belly, Please come out. Seriously. It's like a 100 degrees here, IN CANADA. Your dad has taken to calling me puffy. I get that you're a dude and the last thing you want to do is leave a place you're going to spend the rest of your life trying to get back into, but enough. Your room is really cool, come out and see it. Sincerely, Love Mummy

You might wanna check out one similar to the one I posted only because it's more adjustable and might be more comfortable after baby and once you reach the smallest with the wrap one then use the corset to maintain. I think I'll get a corset after I get to the smallest setting

Re: Post baby stomach binder...

I bought a danskin one off amazon for $9. hopefully it works, my mom sais they used to just tie a sheet around you real tight so I figure anything putting pressure on the area should work.

I asked my midwife, she said even some supportive undergarments like Spanx would work. (I had the same problem last time with the belly bandit being too large for my petite torso.)

Re: Post baby stomach binder...

Any of them will work fine. I have used the wraps that the hospital gives you for both pregnancies but I have vertical incisions both times (not uterine) and i truly Needed toe extra support for the surgical site to heal properly. The belly bandit is shorter and the amazon one looks a little wider like to hospital ones but it is hard to tell. Corsets are great but they are not so comfortable after birth weather vaginally or sectioned so I personally wouldn't go that route. From a purely therapeutic standpoint I also wouldn't really recommend using ace either unless you are really good at getting it wrapped evenly. It will most certainly shift and roll on you if it isn't and it can't really do it's job that way.

I'm planning on just using one of the binders you use when working out. They look pretty similar to the belly bandit, except they make you sweat when you're working out. Should be fine for normal wear, I think.

Re: Post baby stomach binder...

I have to comment on this! I did so much research on binding after my third. Not as much for health reasons, but for vanity purposes. I was on bedrest, so I did a lot of searching and shopping online. Too many bad rating for the belly bandit, plus I didn't want to see the seam. I ended up buying one of these and was back in my non-maternity jeans one week after delivery. This baby really sucks everything in! Comfortable? I got used to it. But it wasn't about comfort, for me.

Re: Post baby stomach binder...

I know this thread is a little old, but here is what I was thinking: I liked that Malay one & I really liked these other expensive ones, but I don't have any money! So, the Malay one was 12 m by 30 cm so roughly 39 ft by 11 inches. Couldn't I buy a flat twin sheet (or find one lying around, etc) & cut it & stitch it together?? A flat twin measures 100x66 in so I could cut it into 5 strips then sew them end to end which would be about 41 in long x 12 inches wide. Thoughts? Would the seams be uncomfortable? it will fall apart If I don't hem the edges? Just throwing it out there :-)
