Who has used post-pregnancy shapewear? What brand(s) did you use? Did it actually help?

I did not buy one of the binders that is designed for postpartum, but I did end up buying an abdominal binder about 2 weeks postpartum. I wish I had gotten it sooner. I didn't buy it to try to shrink my hips or anything like that. I found that after giving birth, my body just felt weird and loose. My body needed time to adjust to the sudden loss of weight and volume. Lying down was uncomfortable. It felt like my stomach was moving uncomfortably to the side like it did in the third trimester. When I wore the binder it helped keep everything in place, and it was just more comfortable for me. I wore it for naps and any other time I could.

I bought a binder and started wearing it about 4 days pp. I'm only 12 days pp now, so we'll see. It is comfortable though.

I bought Spanx and wore them all day... I think it was too much compression! I started bleeding again and feel horrible!

I couldn't imagine wearing Spanx after just having a baby because they are so tight. I wore them one time and never again!
