For years I have been saying that once I got pregnant one of the first things I could buy for after the baby would be a Belly Bandit. So when I was told that I was accepted to review one, I was thrilled. Actually I was ecstatic.

I received the black Bamboo Belly Bandit to review. I chose the bamboo because the original birth plan for Carter was a c-section and the natural bamboo material is recommended for moms who are having a scheduled c-section. The bamboo Belly Bandit is also the most popular one that the company has. It’s very eco friendly and very “green”. It’s also a celebrity favorite, read the celebrity testimonials and even Kourtney Kardashian has a limited edition Belly Bandit of her own.
I had a 41″ waist towards the end of my pregnancy (8 months mind you) so I chose to order the Belly Bandit in medium.Turned out, I needed small. I first tried it on day three postpartum and I was already running out of velcro to fasten it and my belly was still large at this point. So when I wore it, I was at the very edge of the velcro and it felt a little flimsy because it’s not as tight as it should be. So after speaking with my contact representing Belly Bandit, we decided to opt for a small.
Now that I have the correct sizing, what a difference. The support (even at 3 months PP) you receive from Belly Bandit is unbelievable. My stomach is almost back to where it was pre pregnancy, and since I am reviewing this so late I don’t believe it’s 100% The Belly Bandit. I actually love this product because of the postural support it provides, the Belly Bandit has me catching myself slouching and I believe I have improved my posture because of it.
Would I purchase The Belly Bandit? Absolutely. Also, you don’t need to have just had a baby, The Belly Bandit is a great way to hide the muffin top as described in the below video:
