Awesome! Thanks for the feedback. I wasn't expecting a miracle band that would shed the pounds, but it at least sounds like there is some merit to them providing support.

Guess I should start shopping around for a style that I think will be a good fit for me!

Thanks Again!

Re: Postpartum "Girdle" Necessary or Gimmick?

Great. Thank you. How soon did you start postpartum?

I just got the belly bandit last night... it feels great. I was an inch or two over the measurement for small, but I went with it any ways and I'm glad I did. It's a nice snug fit and will hopefully work some post partum as well.

I don't have any back pain, but this is baby #5 and my abs are shot, and I've had some pain in my sides, so my midwife recommended a support belt.

I hope you love it! Great idea to get the small. Thanks to the poster that shared her exercises. I just got a referral to a women's health physical therapist. They specialize in pelvic floor & diastasis!

Re: Postpartum "Girdle" Necessary or Gimmick?

I started the exercises when I got the OK from the OB. I did them in combination with a lot of Kegel exercises. I didn't really integrate regular work outs until about a year after my baby was born. Although since I'm an occupational therapist (working alongside physical therapy), I've been helping my patients work out since I returned to work 3 months postpartum (doing some exercises along with them). I am mostly a stay at home mom now.

I am currently still utilizing the size XS belly bandit. my 2nd baby is about 1.5 years old now. My diastasis when from about a 2" - 2.5" finger width to a 1" finger width. I'm not sure if I will be able to fully bring it back together, but I am surprised it even got to this point. But I am doing full blown work outs now (and still throwing in some pelvic tilt exercises here and there).

It helped my abdominal muscles immensely. You don't need an expensive one just something to hold you in.

Re: Postpartum "Girdle" Necessary or Gimmick?

Good question!! I was wondering the same. . Due in 3 weeks. It appears that it would be most helpful for abdominal wall support and that in itself seems like a small but good comfort to have!

Re: Postpartum "Girdle" Necessary or Gimmick?

There are many advices and suggestions out there reagerding post partum care, but for me I think the postpartum girdles are essential. here are some benifits of it:

-It can relieve lower back and muscle pain.
-You can be active again after giving birth.
-It can help you recovery especially from a c-section birth.
-You will feel confident and comfortable again quickly.

I hope this helps
