I am currently 5 wks postpartum and started wearing my baobei leggings at 3 weeks pp. Although it is a little struggle to get on (which is expected), they are amazing. They help keep my clothes looking smooth and they help with my back pain. I definitely feel supported wearing these leggings. I ordered 2 more pairs!
I bought three pairs a few months ago based on a friend’s recommendation and let me just say, she did not steer me wrong! I gave birth to our first baby six days ago, and after I delivered him vaginally and had rested and snuggled with him for a couple hours, I decided to give them a try. I was nervous that they wouldn’t fit so soon after delivery but sure enough they did (although I did have to do some wriggling that initial time). Since then, I have been rotating through my pairs and basically living in them! They work exactly as advertised, offering compression and support in all the right places without being constricting, and are SO comfortable! For reference, I am 5’8 and was 118 lbs pre-pregnancy, 145 lbs the day that I gave birth and went with the XS; I am now 130 six days out and definitely feel like I went with the right size. If there is one item you splurge on for yourself for your postpartum recovery, this should be it!!
I unexpectedly had a c-section, and recovery was very tough for the first week or so. I couldn’t get these leggings on until about 8 days out, but once I did, they were a total game changer. Instead of shuffling around hunched over, I could stand up straight and walk normally at almost my normal pace. They felt incredible. They were hard to get on and off initially and I had to lie down to get them on, but it got easier over time. So, so worth the money! Was 5’2” and 125lbs pre-pregnancy, went up to 154lbs during pregnancy, and started wearing these when I was back down to 136lbs postpartum. Size Small fit perfectly. Cannot recommend these highly enough! They made an incredible difference in my recovery.
I wanted to love these leggings. The compression felt great, but for over $100 I expect more from a quality perspective. I’ve washed on cool with like colors in a lingerie bag and hung to dry three times since I received the leggings. The stitching has come undone in two places on the leggings. I just received my second pair in the mail and plan to return because I can’t justify the cost for the quality.
These leggings are exactly as advertised and totally worth the money. I received a quality product that provides a real hug to the pelvic area without feeling too tight. I was a little apprehensive about buying online without trying on; I'm 5'10, up to around 180lbs at the end of my pregnancy and around 140 pre-pregnancy. The sales staff was very helpful via email. I am now wearing a size Medium about 10 days post partum. I have not washed them yet, but the material seems very sturdy, definitely squat-proof. This was my third pregnancy (all vaginal deliveries) and I wish I would have had these for after my first pregnancy when I had a tough recovery from a significant episiotomy. Thanks to Baobei for making a quality garment for all the fresh Mom's who so need and deserve it! Would definitely recommend.
