Having a baby often leads you to ask for support after delivery. Like the support you may need around the house or with those late night feedings, your body is no exception. After delivery, your uterus slowly shrinks back to its pre-pregnancy size. During this time, your body needs support, especially if you have a c-section. A belly wrap supports your belly, waist, and hips while you heal. The stable compression helps to ease pain and promote mobility. When we give birth, our abdominal muscles may separate; this is called Diastasis Recti. While it is fairly common after delivery, a belly wrap helps strengthen those weakened muscles. Belly Bandit recommends wearing a postpartum belly wrap as soon as you feel comfortable. Many women wear a belly wrap for at least six to 10 weeks. If you are breastfeeding, you may see a benefit to wearing it longer to help maintain good posture.
It took a decade for Belly Bandit to create the Belly Wrap because they wanted it to be perfect. So it is no wonder why their belly wraps are doctor recommended. The Luxe Belly Wrap is a best seller because it fits all sizes and heights. The corset-inspired design helps the wrap stay in place with targeted compression. The body contouring panels provide you with core and back support to help you stay active. The material is ultra-thin and breathable. The Luxe Belly Band has a discrete fit, maximum coverage, and compression.
Biker shorts may be a must-have in most women's closets. They are versatile for working out or paired with a cute sweater. Some women even wear them with a cute oversized tank for the perfect summer look. The Mother Tucker Biker Shorts feature a 360-degree compression to provide support and reduce swelling. These ultra high-waisted postpartum shorts also help you feel modest and comfortable while breastfeeding by covering your midsection.
These high-waisted leggings provide 360-degree compression to your abdomen, hips, and thighs. In addition, the waist sits just below the bra line to allow for nursing without exposing your midsection. Lastly, this breathable fabric features a Muffinology technology to feature a seamless look with no muffin top.
Each pair of Postpartum Leakproof Panties holds up to 10 Teaspoons of liquid. If you haven’t had a baby before, it is common to lose up to half a quart of blood following a standard vaginal delivery. You lose most of the blood within the first ten days. Postpartum underwear allows you to adjust to a new baby at home without worrying about changing your pad often. In addition, it may help reduce odors and unwanted bladder leaks.
Who says you can’t feel slimming and comfortable while nursing? The Mother Tucker Compression Nursing Tank offers a tank and bra in one. This tank has wire-free support with easy access for nursing. In addition, it utilizes 360 compression with a ribbed abdomen to sculpt the belly and waist.
Compression socks apply compression to your calves and feet to promote blood flow and reduce swelling. Many women think that compression socks are only beneficial during pregnancy. However, they are great for postpartum. Postpartum swelling may occur in your legs and feet. The swelling is a result of fluid retention that often occurs during pregnancy. Also, moms who have a c-section are more prone to swelling in their legs and feet. Therefore, It is possible that swelling could cause Edema. Edemas often go away on their own after a few weeks, but there are things you can do to help minimize the swelling, such as compression socks, hydration, and healthy eating. Compression socks are a valuable postpartum clothing item for a new mom.
