This is my first, so I don't have personal experience, but I briefly worked at a birth center in El Paso and most of our clients used a belly binder (faja) postpartum.  The midwives there seemed pretty convinced that the women who wore them consistently postpartum bounced back faster than their clients who didn't use them.  The women would literally put them on within a few hours of giving birth (as soon as we stopped rubbing their belly all the time...sometimes even before that), and I'm pretty sure they didn't take them off for at least a month or so.
