Underworks Post Delivery Girdle Belt
I have not used one of these, nor seen in the flesh but I have been told that it is fab! Your wear it over your smalls, or under if you prefer. Apparently the post delivery girdle helps in the healing by alleviating symptons associated with post delivery stress and discomfort, flattening the tummy, supporting your lower back, and preventing pain. Made from a special cotton blend elastic band that is easy on the skin. The Velcroclosure makes it is easy to put on and take off and provides adjustability to size.
Sounds good, but looks like it’s from another era! At £19.99 got to be worth a try ….
The review on Amazon reads: Really pleased with this product. 2 1/2 weeks after having my first child I can fit back into my pre-pregnancy jeans and have only the slightest tummy bulge. This is without any special diet or exercise (although I am breastfeeding, which has probably helped). My midwife commented on how quickly I was losing my post-pregnancy tummy so I assume the belt really did have an effect. I had a c-section and so started wearing this belt at 5 days post-op. I wore it in the daytime only and took it off at night. It’s not that comfortable when you first put it on as it has to be as tight as you can get it, but you soon get used to it. Having had a c-section I actually quite liked the feeling of support it gave me. I did wear big maternity knickers underneath to stop it from rubbing on the operation scar. It also doesn’t look that glamorous, to say the least, and the velcro gets a bit curly with time, but it works. I’m in my late 30s so did not expect to regain my figure (size 10/12) this quickly. I would definitely use it again.
If you have used this, let us know what you think.
