    Hiya!

    I'm a soon to be mother and was wondering if anyone has heard of wearing compression garments post-pregnancy. apparently this is becoming a popular thing to help you get back to your pre-pregnancy body and I want to get one, but am not sure where to start. any suggestions for companies they've liked would be appreciated!

    Hey Chloe!
    I know this is a bit late but when I had my baby I was looking for a similar thing to you. I searched for a while and came across a compression company called Macom and they had loads of stuff for postnatal. Hope this helps! xx

    Hi, I too researched this while pregnant and bought two products, a girdle thing and a belly bandit post pregnancy wrap. I had my lil boy 9 days ago and tried to wear them but they were so tight and uncomfortable I gave up after 15mins. You already feel like you've been beaten up after giving birth, (bad back, stitches, sore boobs ect) the last thing I wanted is to feel like I was being suffocated! Luckily my stomachs almost back to normal, apart from a stubborn linea nigra(go breastfeeding!). Up to you though as people who stick it out seem to have good results xxx
