From Binding to Bandit, Women Always Want to Get in Shape

Maternity Corset 1910by LEANNE

I have a feeling that every pregnant woman becomes aware at some point during her 9 months that her figure is being altered beyond her control.  I have had two babies of my own and am very familiar and comfortable with my body in its pregnant form, but that doesn’t mean that I haven’t  wanted to tweak it here and there.  If I had lived many years ago, I may have turned to one of these binding maternity corsets or girdles, but fortunately this invention has evolved into something much more comfortable and maybe even more effective.

The Belly Bandit

The Belly Bandit® is an abdominal compression binder designed to help get your body back to its pre-pregnancy shape.

Not only does the Belly Bandit® help reduce uncomfortable swelling, it aids in decreasing bloating caused by water retention, and gives additional support for Mommy’s weary legs & back. For you breastfeeding moms, there’s a bonus… the Belly Bandit® will help you with your posture during feedings, and may help to reduce the all too common back & shoulder pain associated with breastfeeding.

The Belly Bandit® also helps in reducing unsightly stretch marks. Greater support of the loose skin around the tummy may actually reduce tension which in turn may decrease stretch marks in the post period.

Ultimately, you’ll look better and feel better faster.
