During your pregnancy period, your body went through a lot of changes. The size of your tummy increased, and your waist added a few more inches. You packed a lot of pounds, and your weight exploded.
Thankfully, with a bouncing baby and a couple of days after giving birth, you are over the moon. You finally did it and successfully delivered a lovely little angel!
But you know what sweetheart?
Like you, we've all been there. We gave birth and had to hop on the post-pregnancy horror train of weight loss and have to try several dieting regimens. Naturally, it's impossible to diet while breastfeeding; of course, hitting the gym was a no-no. Fortunately, help arrived in a form of some magic – yeah, MAGIC postpartum compression outfit. We bought and wore postpartum and maternity shapewear and, soon after, happily watched the numbers on the scale go down.
We religiously trusted that they'd help reduce our tummy sizes. While our post-pregnancy girdles varied, they all did a great job compressing our abdomens, hips, and butts. All of us, including C-section mommies, couldn't have found a better savior!
As you sit there today, this is the good news I'd love to deliver straight to you; you will get your sexy body back. YES, that protruding belly will be gone soon, similar to those extra kilos.
The Secret: Postpartum Girdles
The garments you ought to wear when on postpartum should compress your abdomen, buttocks, and hips and help get rid of the loose, saggy skin. That's because the easiest, quickest way back to its original form would be compression shapewear. At this point, I know your mind is probably racing, trying to figure out when to wear an abdominal belt after C-section, whether to go for a belly bandit or if it's right to just go for a full body shaper. Alternatively, if it is too late to wear a postpartum belly wrap.
Today, nearly every mom swears by how useful postpartum girdles are in helping lose weight. They are the go-to undergarment for women fighting to look and feel their best in waist, hips, thighs, and buttocks to die for.
Remember, like any outfit, post-pregnancy girdles of today vary and include those that target the stomach, thighs, hips, and all of them in single shapewear. Popular choices include postpartum belly wraps, waist cinchers, high waist boyshorts, waist trainers, belts, and pull-up girdles.
Latex Thermal 3 Pos Hook Vest is our most recommended postpartum girdle because it ticks all boxes. From our experience wearing it, this "Magic Waist Trimmer" is pretty useful in cutting down tummy to the ideal silhouette you want.
But before we get into that, there's something you must understand before you shop for post-pregnancy shapewear.
What to wear after a standard delivery is very, very different from the choice of shapewear of someone who went for C-section. Both procedures follow completely different healing processes, although your choice of compression garment plays a massive role during that as well.
If you gave birth the usual, natural way, you would afford a little more compression on the area, including your tummy. C-section will, however, mean avoiding all hooks and zippers and any great compression products, especially those which may irritate the scar.
Before you trust that postpartum girdle before and after results, you need a quick guide to determine the kind of postpartum shapewear to buy. And in a few pointers, I'll help you.
Tip #1: Consider how it will look under your clothes – because I know you wouldn't want to be pulling out your bodycon dress. Go for something comfortable to wear, easy on you, and still invisible under your clothes.
Tip #2: Choose a garment that's easy to slide on – not something you will wrestle your way into. That simply means you must know your waist and hip size vis-à-vis those of your preferred shapewear garment.
Tip #3: Check to see if it can snugly stay in place and never slides and shifts around – remember, you must feel the compression in your tummy.
Tip #4: Can it compress enough; is it breathable? – Much as you need to feel compressed, don't go for an outfit that will squeeze the bejesus out. Thin, lightweight, and breathable is essential, mainly because you will sweat more as your body releases excess fats and fluids stored during pregnancy.
Tip #5: Did you give birth the natural way or you underwent C-section? - Postpartum shapewear for moms who went through C-sections are quite different.
With that, here's our list of the best Postpartum Girdles and belly wraps of 2020. Ideally, they are the best compression outfit after a standard delivery and what to put on in case you had a C-section.
We'll start with this postpartum girdle because it is our most recommended post-pregnancy shapewear. It is perfect for those who delivered the natural way, and mothers who had C-section as well.
Not too tight, but with three levels of hooks to tighten up and size down, this vest is exactly what you should wear post-pregnancy. The reason it is our most recommended is that it has everything – I mean, everything you need from a perfect compression garment.
First, it's made from premium latex with a pretty soft exterior and can stretch with ease. Latex makes it a long-lasting outfit that also ensures it stretches to evenly cover everywhere, from your torso to just down below your breasts.
It's so comfortable to wear you might actually put in on the whole day and even sleep with it and feel perfectly OK. It will cover your butt, hips, and tummy everywhere and compress the skin to return to its original size. Simultaneously, the compression helps hold diaper-pads in place so that you are at peace whenever you have them on.
Furthermore, Latex Thermal 3 Pos Hook Vest has support for your breasts during this critical breastfeeding stage. Your bust is lifted, fastened a bit upwards and won't sag. The butt-lifter, despite being small, actually lifts your butt to give your booty that attractiveness we all want, while the open gusset on your torso conveniently makes it possible to visit the bathroom.
Perhaps the most excellent feature of this postpartum girdle is how it works to help you lose weight and reduce the size of your tummy. The latex it's designed with uses the thermal effect to burn away the fats and reduce the size of your waist and tummy.
A couple of days later, when you feel you've reduced your tummy size, you just move to the next hook to scale down and increase the compression. Remember, the hooks also serve to ease the discomfort in case you feel uneasy as a result of the incisions after C-section.
So, it's easy to see why this vest is easily our most recommended. It keeps the belly tightly tucked in when you are losing weight post-pregnancy, so you lose weight, reduce saggy stomach, and avoid painful afterbirth cramps.
Next up is a postpartum compression outfit that I'd highly recommend to those who delivered naturally as well as C-section - it is braless, strapless and has no hooks. The best thing with it is the fact that you can actually put in on and still wear your favorite dinner dress and go out with your spouse!
Right after giving birth, you wouldn't want your tummy to sag and look loose on your postpartum outfit. You basically would like an outfit that will completely fit in you and feel comfortable on your incisions.
This Comfort Evolution high-waist is exactly that; a compression garment that gently compresses your stomach to give you a cute look with a completely seamless feel. You feel no too much pressure or discomfort on your tummy – a little compression to keep the wound compressed.
It will shrink your waistline, hug the tummy and maintain the kind of figure you are dying for. Remember, it also enhances the butt and compresses the thighs just the right way. It is breathable, comfortable and so thin you could actually put it on under your everyday outfit.
Without straps, this simply means it's perfect to wear with literally anything; blouse, crop-top, tees, tanks. It also comes with an inner crotch hole for extra comfort and convenience whenever you want to visit the bathroom.
You cannot rely upon Latex Thermal 3 Pos Hook Vest alone to trim your body to size and compress your tummy. A perfect accompaniment that works as effective to help bring your sexy body back is a waist cincher that can as well double as a plus-size postpartum belly wrap.
Comfy on you and easy on your tummy, this cincher is perfect for achieving the silhouette you want. It is also excellent support on the back and stomach, helping lift off excess weight from the waist.
The way it works to mold the waist and trim the abdomen is actually fascinating. It comes with three rows of hooks for thrice the level of control you can have. You adjust the pins as per your preference and deliver the perfect compression to your tummy.
Ideally, this outfit works best as a waist and stomach trimmer. The soft inner material means you can put it on, fasten the hooks well and wear your favorite outfit without worrying that anyone will notice you wore Powernet cincher.
Incredibly, this postpartum shapewear is healthy on the skin as well. The trimmer comes with active cosmetic ingredients, including seaweed, Cosmacol EMI, vitamin E, and Ginkgo Biloba which nourish the skin and help it glitter.
Whether you gave birth the natural way or you underwent C-section, you can trust this cincher to work well with your tummy. It is gentle on the wound, but as per your requirements, you can actually size it down to press the tummy and compress away excess skin.
If you need shapewear that would hug your tummy firmly, support your bust, and allow natural breastfeeding while helping shape your whole body, then buy Comfort Evolution Full Body Shaper.
So, thigh slimmer, as its name suggests, is for those who would like to slim down on their thighs while having enough support on waist and back.
It is a compression garment that would give your whole body, right from the boobs and tummy to the thighs and hips, a uniform, even, and sexy appearance. It's almost similar to Comfort Evolution High-Waist Thigh Slimmer, with the only difference being its ability to comfortably trim the tummy and waist to size.
For a post-pregnancy outfit, this shapewear is made with a high-compression material that guarantees perfect curves, shapely thighs, and a killer butt. It isn't too tight on the tummy and thus ideal for mommies who went for C-section, and still stylish and comfortable.
The straps serve to support your breasts, especially since you are already breastfeeding. As a compression garment, though, you may also put it on under your other outfit and still feel comfortable. It comes with a crotch hole, so you never have to worry about going to the bathroom.
As soon as you feel comfortable in the wound area, you may put on the outfit. Usually, it's 3-4 days after the procedure.
You can wear a postpartum belt, wrap, or cincher even if it's been months. Post-pregnancy shapewear are designed to function effectively if worn continuously. So, they may still compress the tummy and support your bust even if you didn't use them immediately after giving birth.
It's often ideal for wearing the outfit as often and for as long as you are comfortable with it.
Maybe it's no longer tight enough and has lost its elasticity. The best thing to do would be to buy different post-pregnancy shapewear.
Provided it is comfortable on you, risk-free on the kid, and poses no danger to your wound, you may sleep with it. Just make sure the garment prevents the tummy from expanding.
The best postpartum girdle in this list is Latex Thermal 3 Pos Hook Vest. It is comfortable, much more effective in trimming away excess inches off your waist and still very comfortable on the tummy.
