I am 5'9", 142 lbs pre pregnancy, and gained about 23 lbs - I went with the medium after a lot of debate. That was the perfect size for me. I felt so much better wearing these than I did after my 1st c-section when I had nothing but the hospital issued abdominal binder. They aren't perfect - there could definitely be more compression on the incision area, and the legs roll up your thighs constantly, but I would definitely recommend these to anyone recovering from a c-section.
I love how it felt on my body and that it did not bother my c-section scar at all unlike others but the shorts kept on rolling up my thighs (which is super annoying and unlike the description of the shorts that it shouldn’t). I also wished it was a zipper instead of the hook/eye)
I was extremely upset the first time trying these on 5 days post op. I could not get them on. In time my swelling went down and I was able to squeeze myself in them. The design I've found has been great to stay away from my cesarean cut, but it doesn't give any support to my lower stomach. The top part also doesn't lay well do to my torso length I'm guessing.. I'll be purchasing another band to try to get everything pushed back.
The first day was amazing I loved these but the longer I wore them the more I noticed they were actually pushing my stomach down so my stomach began to hang lower than before I started wearing these and that is because they are constantly falling down and mine fit perfectly, I bought a different paid with straps like a bra and within two days of wearing it I noticed my stomach was no longer dropping as much.
I don't typically write reviews, but I am constantly looking for reviews from people who are built more like me. I am 5'4" and curvy with hips and a butt. Pre pregnancy, I was 145 pounds wearing a 4-6, but I gained a lot of weight and went up to 195. It made looking at size charts very difficult. I am a week postpartum via c-section and I am still very swollen and full of fluid. The scale still says 189. I am currently wearing and BREATHING in the LARGE c-section shorts with the Luxe Bamboo wrap on top. They are giving good compression and allowing me to move a little bit better. I was able to pee thru the gusset which was a big concern for me. It is definitely a 2 hand job and you should probably also say a quick prayer and hope that you done wet yourself. So, I have compression where needed, can pee when needed, and can still breathe. Works for me!
