I took the advice of sizing up and glad that I did. The leggings fit really well and I definitely feel supported, post-cesarean. The leggings do have a tendency to roll at the top but it's not something that prevents me from wearing them multiple times each week.
I have bought 3 pair of these and recommended them to all my mom to be friends! First night coming home from the hospital I was so uncomfortable, I had a scheduled c section and was managing the c section pain fine but my god the back pain from laying on my back for 3 days straight and ribs settling back into place was getting unbearable but the thought of sleeping on my side was terrifying as I thought every organ was going to fall out of me. I put these on and holy sh*t, I have never felt so supported in my life. Was able to move freely without feeling like I was compromising support! Since that night, I ordered two more pair and have lived in them. The belly binder the hospital gave was so uncomfortable and let’s be honest, no one’s sleeping in that or wearing it through the day. My Pelvic PT recommended against any Velcro belly binder and recommended these and I am so glad she did! I will continue to use these until they fall apart, even after recovery! Picture is right at 2 weeks postpartum and I’m only 8lbs from pre-pregnancy birth weight, started wearing them day 4 and notified a huge difference with belly size and ab muscle support when not wearing within only a few days. Cannot recommend them enough!
I'm very happy with these leggings! I first tried them on 3 days postpartum and was happy with how supported I felt. I've been wearing them just a few hours each day and plan to wear them longer once they fit better.
I’ve tried many of these types of pants and honestly these are by far the best. Fits nicely - slims all your postpartum parts. Totally recommend.
These leggings are fantastic with a good compression and fit. However I would’ve rated higher if there was a way to stop them from rolling down at the top.
