First of all, you can get postpartum belly wraps and bands from the hospital for free. They usually give it if you had a C-section but there is no harm in asking if you had a normal delivery. I deliberately had to remind the nurse few times to get one even though I had a C-section. If you are unable to get one from the hospital or end up not liking the one you got, here are 2 options-
Postpartum Belly Wraps
Amazon Postpartum Belly Wrap– The first one (the black one) is affordable but it didn’t fit me so I immediately returned it cause it made me feel bad about my body (damm! even a stupid wrap can make you feel sad, that’s postpartum for you ladies!). I didn’t know about belly band extenders at this point (yes it’s a thing you add to your wrap to extend it just like a bra extender).
Belly Bandit Postpartum Belly Wrap– I got the second one (the beige, pricey one) which I really liked it and the one I use right now, I still had to add the extender as the wrap was too tight on me initially. It did a great job tucking everything in neatly without moving or folding. I wore it consistently for a week and saw a huge difference then I fell off the wagon once I commenced work. Four months into postpartum I still wear it occasionally on days when I do everything perfectly (like taking a shower in the morning😆 WFH life!). Also, the velcro didn’t peel my clothes like the one I got from the hospital did!
Highly recommend wearing it for few hours or the whole day at least in the first couple of weeks!
