Hi All! Just wondering...it was recommended that I wear a post-prenancy band to help constrict my stomach back to where it was but right after the baby was born, I tried it and it killed my back. Its been 3 months now and I'm feeling somewhat back to normal after losing most of my preggo weight, is it too late to girdle it up?? Has this worked for anyone???

Yes!!! Yes!!! yes!!

I used three girdles after having my son!! and it helped!!! It also helped with my post partum cramps! Call me crazy but I wore a girdle panty, corset and a full body girdle..lol day and night :)...lol...i started out with a bigger size then worked down to my reg size. This process is actually very important in my family. My grandmother called me from Mexico especially to remind me to wear girdles!!!!

I wore them then and I still wear them. Vintage dresses in my opinion look better with if you wear girdles, even if you have a amazing body :)

My mexican grandmother swears by it! And she gives me so much crap because I haven't been wearing one...the faja fabulosa she says. I guess I'll give it a shot, you're right...vintage style dresses look WAY better with a smooth body outline. Thanks!

Yes...I am also Mexican !! :) And I am a strong believer of fajas :)

Girdle it up only if your doctor has given you the okay to go back to do the things you normally did after pregnancy. It worked for me on my first pregnancy but the last two I was too tired to even get dressed in something other than sweats and a tee form a while. Here in Miami, they sell them in pretty much every mall. They are called Columbian Fajas and every gal I know who uses them swears they are made with magic. I am going to get one soon. My grandmothers (both from Cuba) says I need to wear them to sleep and workout everyday all day. They said that this was the norm back in the 1950's. *Crosses fingers* Kudos for trying to keep up with it. I hope this helped.

Amazingly enough my post baby body ( 4 months now) looks the same as my pre-baby body except my boobs have gone from a 38DD/DDD to a 38I. Needless to say being a pumping mama is difficult to dress…Continue
