but really my honest opinion is that the compression "postpartum" bands are mostly useless. Usually pretty costly for something so simple, too.

During pregnancy I used a compression band to hold my hips tight because I experienced a lot of hip pain.
I've heard those pp bands do slip around a lot and are uncomfortable. I think I want to try a fabric wrap, like the one in the first pp link. (Bengkung binding?)
