Flatter and Tighter Belly after a 75 Lb Pregnancy
“It wasn’t until my 4 week PP appointment that my OB pointed out that I had severe Diastasis. A 4″ separation in my abdomen. I just assumed that I still looked 6 months pregnant because I had given birth to an 11 Lb. baby and gained about 75 Lb. (thanks to developing Gestational Diabetes).
I was basically told that there wasn’t much that I could do to fix my bulging belly unless I was willing to undergo cosmetic surgery. I wasn’t convinced that surgery was the only answer, so I did a little (actually a LOT) of online research to educated myself on Diastasis Recti.
Many blogs later, it was suggested that the use of a medical grade girdle would yield results. Although I had already been using garments like Spanx, I realized they were not providing the support I needed to heal.
Desperate, I researched every Postpartum Girdle I could and read nearly every customer review determined to find the best! I found the Bellefit Girdle.
Nothing is more persuasive than real photos of real people and their stories.
The Bellefit website was also the only one that I found that even addressed Diastasis as a complication of pregnancy.
Convinced I had found the solution, I purchased the Bellefit Corset in a size small on the 21st of March 2012, 4 weeks after delivering via c-section.
Even though it was a little snug, it was comfortable. Based on the chart, I was in between a medium and small. So I decided to go with the small. I was optimistic that soon it would produce results.
I couldn’t be happier. Absolutely worth every penny! I wore it nearly every second of the day for almost 3 months. I would only take it off to wash. The security and support it offers are considerable!
As you can see from my photos I do not have a perfect, flawless belly, but it was important to me to look good and feel good about myself again. I am 5’3″ tall, weigh 120 Lb. and was size 2 pre-pregnancy. At delivery I was 195 Lb, size HUGE and weighed about 175 Lbs at my 4 week Postpartum appointment. I still have a few pounds to lose, but at 127 Lb., I feel great and my belly is flatter and tighter than after baby #1.
