Are you going to use one? I found a bamboo belly bandit on sale for a great price yesterday so I went ahead and picked it up (40.00 compared to the usual 67.00 which is the cheapest I have found it online, much less in Hawaii). Dh looked at it and said it looked 'historic' lol, he said he can't imagine wearing something like that after just giving birth and trying to maneuver a new baby and Dd. Oh well, I will try...

Thank you Kiliki for my beautiful siggy!

Yes I am definitely planning on wearing something to help slim back down after giving birth. I actually posted something similar awhile back and got some great information from other moms including before and after pictures that showed great results! I bought the hip slimmer to help hips return to their normal size and after reading reviews, I think I will wear that in combination with a belly bandit or something similar. I did not do anything after my first was born but I am so glad I learned about these products this time around!

Congrats on your find! I bought my hip slimmer brand new on consignment, I hate paying full price for something I am only going to use for a few weeks.

So I was just looking online at Belly Bandits and similar products - they get such mixed reviews. Apparently people either love them or really REALLY hate them! Maybe if I can find one for super cheap, I would give it a try? I don't think I will pay full price for one.

I used one after my last pregnancy and have posted my before and after pics here. It worked great for me. I will be wearing it again.
