TOP 11 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BELLY BANDIT

What is Belly bandit?

The belly bandit is a wrap designed to shrink and tighten a woman’s tummy after childbirth.

When should I start wearing my Belly Bandit® ? The first 24-48 hours after delivery. You can start using it as soon as the day after you give birth (even after a C section)! Wearing the Belly Bandit® after a c- section may help to decrease post-op recovery time by minimizing associated incision pain, which allows greater mobility post-surgery! We recommend prior to use that you consult your physician

How long do I need to wear belly bandit to see results? We recommend doing it the full amount of time which is 6-8 weeks, For maximum results wear your Belly Bandit® snuggly around your waist day and night. Just take it off to shower…then wrap yourself right back up again! The Belly Bandit® should fit snug with constant pressure on the belly, but without any impact on breathing, circulation or discomfort in your ribs. As always diet and exercise play an integral part when trying to reach your pre-pregnancy size.**If discomfort occurs remove and consult with your doctor**

Can I wear belly bandit if I just have a big tummy (not due to pregnancy)? Although the Belly Bandit® was designed for postpartum women, there is no reason why you shouldn’t wear it whenever you can or want to, especially if it makes you feel good (and it does)! Some additional benefits of the product are extra back support and improved posture. We all know that when you feel better, you tend to be more active. This may lead the way to more movement and in turn may help with exercise (and you can wear while working out). Don’t forget that when you are using your core muscles you engage the important focal point and it’s here the work out truly begins.

Ask any trainer, it’s all about using your core muscles to build strength and tone the body. This is like wearing a rubber band around your wrist “aka” a reminder to be aware of your core and engage! Now the good part….you look slimmer in clothing and feel better wearing those shirts that you stuffed away in the closet because you didn’t like those “extra rolls” or you promised to put it back on after you lost the “spare tire”. So even if you don’t have kids we know, every little bit helps.

What is the difference btw the Belly bandit wraps? Which one is more effective? The difference lies in the fabric used; the bamboo & BFF are made out of natural fibres; they are eco-friendly & naturally anti-microbial. They are also moisture wicking which makes them the perfect choice for C sections.

NONE is more effective than the other…they are equally effective as long as you are diligent. Of course moms who wear immediately after delivery achieve better results.

I had a C section, can I still use the Belly Bandit®? Which one and how soon? Yes. Above and beyond…the Bamboo and the BFF!!!!! This is because of their amazing anti-microbial and anti-bacterial qualities. It is also moisture wicking by nature so that helps during this time when the hormones are just transitioning back to normal. Fun fun fun! As always please check with your physician as to when you can start wearing your Belly Bandit® – they will be able to advise you on this based on your individual delivery. Don’t forget to make sure the Belly Bandit® goes over your incision so it doesn’t irritate but keeps it all nice and safely compressed.

When is the best time to buy Belly Bandit®? In the 8th month many women will be the same size as they will be post delivery. Simply measure the part of your tummy that is the biggest all the way around your abdomen, which is usually at the belly button. Choose the corresponding band for your size.

Just prior to delivery simply subtract 3 to 5 inches from your belly measurement. Select the corresponding band for that size. If you purchase your Belly Bandit® after you give birth, simply choose the corresponding band for belly size

I had my baby over a year ago…can I still use it? Although we recommend wearing your Belly Bandit® right after you deliver for 6-8 weeks, there is no reason why you shouldn’t wear it whenever you can or want to. Some additional benefits of the product are extra back support and improved posture. We all know that when you feel better, you tend to be more active. This may lead the way to more movement and in turn may help with exercise (and you can wear while working out).
