Great belly band!
I got this after having worn the bamboo wrap for 6 weeks after birth as I found the bamboo one keep rolling up or sliding up. I wanted something specifically for my hips. The 2in1 gives a good strong compression on hip area and doesn’t slide up as much as the bamboo one hence gives me confidence that the hips are being targeted constantly also. Have been wearing it with the bamboo and I’m 12 week pp. I can see the result I feel. My tummy has gone down 80-90% now and I can feel the work on the hips. I fit into tight fit leggings pre pregnancy, with a bit more stretch I’m sure but the they fit comfortably. Plan to keep wearing these two bands until 6 months pp or when I feel I no longer need them :)
The only comment I have is the wrap was previously made in the US but now all seem to be made in China! I’d avoid products made in China! I hope BB could move their manufacturing elsewhere! Hence the 4 stars
Belly Bandit® 2-in-1 Bandit™
I am so happy about my belly bandit 2-in-1. I am now in my 34th week and feel so thankful for the support I have from my band to continue the active things I love to do. I’ve started using it since week 24 when walking, paddle boarding, even strength training. I also work as a nurse and am on my feet a lot and it’s nice to have a minimalistic band that you can wear discretely under thin scrubs. Two weeks ago we were even up hiking in Norway putting in about 10KM at least every day and I Have been able to do so without feeling tired in my body or having any back pain. Of course I am not saying my experience will be the same for everybody. I have been active always before pregnancy but it’s so wonderful to be able to keep doing the things I love and keep me healthy while feeling supported with the extra kilos from pregnancy. I love the minimalistic design and it is not too
Wide that it gets in the way. I’m looking forward to feeling just as supported postpartum with the same smart band. Only drawback is it is not super comfortable when sitting but That is not what I use it for anyway. Fully recommend for active mamas, especially ones who are up on their feet a lot.
Helps with postpartum hip and back recovery.
