    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Actually works! I bought this before I even had my baby girl, and I'm so glad I did. I had a c-section, and was worried it would sit too close to it or would irritate my incision, but it doesn't. The only issue I have with the belly bandit is I am petite, only 5"4 and I have a very short mid-section, so my belly bandit has gotten this annoying fold in it. When I sit down, the BB doesn't have anywhere to go so it has to fold in the middle(horizontally). If there was a product for petite people who don't have a long midsection, it would be fabulous! Either way, I'm wearing my BB, I'm only 9 days post-op and have already dropped 15lbs!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable, supportive, easy I bought my belly bandit prior to my c section delivery in hopes of bouncing back to my pre-pregnancy body since I've always had an athletic build. I was a size 1 before pregnancy and so I purchased an XS. I disappointed when I tried to wear it 4 days postpartum and it wouldn't even close! I even filled out a return slip but tried it 2 days later out of curiousity and it barely closed so I kept it. All if sudden I began to shrink and at 2 weeks postpartum it isn't as tight as I need it. I loved the support it provided to my weak core and I definitely think it helped to shrink my waist but I had to dock it a star on my rating because I feel like now I need an XXS and there isn't one available.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the original bandit! I bought the original bandit two weeks after I started using the BFF-I ordered a medium BFF when I was 8 months pregnant and shrank out of it in 12 days so I got an extra small original bandit. I like the original better because even though I'm short, 5'3", the BFF barely covered my torso and the original covers from my hips to rib cage. The top picture is one day before having my little one, top right is 2 weeks PP, bottom left is 3 weeks PP and the bottom left is at one month PP. No dieting-just using my bandits and staying hydrated I've lost almost all my baby weight-173.6 down to 138.6. I just wish I'd known about these with my first son!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product I bought the Belly Bandit about 2 months ago. I bought two, size M and S. I wore the M for the first two weeks, and then I ended up buying a size S. I wore it for 5 weeks. I think it helped. Im back to my pre-pregnancy weight, but I still have some toning to do in my abdominal area. I didn't like the fabric. I was hard, and after wearing the Bandit day and night I was ready to get rid of it. The Bandit folds and irritated my skin. So I ended up wearing it over a tank top. I would recommend this product because I am back to wearing my pre-pregnancy clothes, but it is uncomfortable.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from New style not good but overall great The new style has a white lining and ripped on me. Customer service is sending me a replacement and in the original style with a black lining. The new style I don't like at all but I did have the large and medium in the original band in the original style and it worked fabulously. (So I recommend the original style with black lining only in the original belly band.)I shrank down to the small within 4 weeks. I went from 254 to 230. From week 4-7 I stayed in the small (I had to use my bamboo one for awhile) and went from 230-217. Now I'm 8 weeks pp and joined weight watchers to help with the belly band and help me shrink more. I use my belly band (bamboo) when I exercise.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great item!! helped me lose 35 pounds!!! I purchased my belly bandit original a week prior to my second c section. Going in on the day I had my daughter I had weighed 180 and one month after birth I weighed 148. I put the belly bandit on right after I gave birth (3 hrs or so after.) And it also helped me with breastfeeding support too. It's just all around amazing. I have recommend this to many mothers!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really works I bought this product right before delivery because I wanted to have it at hand! This is by far the best product I've ever used for my tummy. I will let my before n after photos do the talking. I will recommend this product to all my pregnant friend for postpartum recovery success!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really recommend! I was pregnant with twins, and gained 40 pounds only in my belly. After birth, my abdominal muscles and back muscles were so weak, and I still looked pregnant. I wore the size medium for less than a week, then needed the small. Within days I could Velcro the small to its tightest levels and that provided the support I needed to flatten my tummy and provide back support. I enjoy wearing it and it gives an extra level of confidence. I also have the belly shield, but I prefer to wear th bandit over a fitted tank under my shirt. I'm back to a size 4 only two weeks after twins, and at my pre-pregnancy weight and feel like I look pretty good! :)

    Can i wear the belly bandit after a c section? If so, do i put it on the same or should it cover the scar? Im worried it will rub off my scar and irritate it

    Asked by: emma84
    If you are worried about your C-section, we highly recommend the C-section undies, they are a dream come true for women after delivery. You can definitely wear any of the Wraps over it as well.

    Hello, I purchased a belly bandit in a size small according to the size chart provided. I am now 6 days post partum and it's on the tightest setting. Can I still wear it like that and still see results or do I need to go a size smaller?

    Asked by: RPappan
    Please wear it until you are sized out of it then it may be time to size down.

    I am 4 months Post delivery. Would the Belly Bandit still work for me? I am just now learning about this product. What specifically would you recommend for my case?

    Asked by: Sperky
    The best outcome is when it’s worn immediately after delivery for an absolutely minimum of 6-10 weeks. There are certain places in the world where it’s customary to bind for up until a year. There are additional great benefits as well....back support, helps with muscle memory, great for support with breast feeding, supports back and legs etc... We suggest if you have any doubts about wearing the Belly Bandit® because you feel you are "too late" that you try something from our line of Mother Tucker™ compression line. We have compression tank tops and leggings that are highly recommended to mommies after they use the Belly Bandit®. Although they are not as tight as wearing the Belly Bandit® they still give you intense tummy compression! Please check out the Mother Tucker™ compression line at: As for sizing, please use our sizing calculator found on our website. Use the “post pregnant” option and measure your belly as described. if you decide to go with a wrap.

    Should I buy a new belly bandit after each pregnancy or can I use what I have again? 

    Asked by: nlalvarez
    Great question, it depends on how much wear and tear your band has, you want the most amount of compression especially immediately after delivery. If it's been used and washed a number of times it may not have the same strength it did when it was new.
