Girdles

I remember seing a post on this a while back about where you can buy girdles for after you have your baby to help all your organs settle back in their proper positions and makes it easier for you to get back to your pre-prego size. I can't seem to find the post on this and I was wondering where can I get one of these? Someone said JCPenney's but where would it be in that store? I've heard these work great and I'm going to try it out for myself. Any help would be appreciated!

Motherhood MAternity has what you are describibg - HOWEVER, I rememebr that post you are talking about and a few ladies on there said that the one from Motherhood was not as good as a regular sports girdle. One that you could buy at a sports shop, for exercising, not for pregnancy. I'll see if i can find that old post, b/c I have been thinking about this lately too! So, I'm glad you asked! If I find it, I'll bump it up to the top.

Also...if you end up with a csection you can request an abdominal binder. I've been using mine every day since my surgery on 10/9. I was wearing prepreg clothes 7 days after he was born. Probably helped that he was a rather big baby (10lb8oz) and that I gained a total of about 15 lbs during the preg (how? I dunno). The postpartum garments they referred to are also found at babys r us. I think my binder is much firmer support then those things would be..it's made of a very thick material you can cinch as tight as you want

Wow docbytch, that is great! I'm hoping to be in my pre preg cothes pretty quickly too. I'll try to remember to ask for the abdominal binder if I end up having a c-section, I hope I don't have to though I really hope I have a natural birth. DaBonkElsMe~ Yes, please do bump that post to the top if you find it, I really am curious as to where I can get one of those things. I also remember reading that the ones at motherhood maternity weren't that great either. Thanks for the help you two!

lol good luck everyone with being in your pre preg clothes early, i desperately hope the same but i think it will take a lot of working out in my case.

yes its in the bra area....with the larger sized bras it cost me like $13.... they had several to choose from... I picked the stiffest one I could.... so that maybe that will work better....
