Post Partum Belt

Hi, just wondering if anyone else wears/wore a postpartum belt or girdle after pregnancy and if so, how long are you supposed to wear it? I had a c section so i have been wearing mine for about 4 weeks now. Is it time to take it off? Is there any risks/benefits for wearing it too long? Thanks!

I wore control underwear--kind of like a soft girdle--for about a month after my second c-section. It really helped with the healing process...took about 3 weeks to sit up with no pain, compared to 6 weeks after my first c-section when I didn't wear the things. I don't think there's any harm in wearing the for a long time, if they feel good. I quit wearing them because it was just too hot...I kept getting a rash because the fabric didn't breathe.
