Bellefit Gave Stability to My Core after C-Section
"My name is Laura and I'm going to speak to you about my Bellefit experience. I had my first baby in May of 2013. Since this was my first pregnancy I wasn't really sure what you expect.
At my first OB appointment my doctor told me
"Well you're pretty small so you're probably not going to gain more that 35 pounds."
Well, 35 pounds came and went and it got to the point where strangers felt the need to tell me how huge my belly was… it was HUGE! So I'd heard about a celebrity that had used a corset after pregnancy and I'd never heard of anything like that. I looked online and I came across Bellefit. As I was looking at it, I thought, "Well, I'm probably not going to buy one of these". It seemed a little pricey and I thought, I don't want to spend that kind of money for the sake of vanity because I want my body back.
The more I researched and read the medical benefits and reviews, the more I thought that maybe this was an investment that I needed to make.
I was already having so much hip and back pain; I'd slept on the couch the last 2 months of my pregnancy because I was so uncomfortable.
>So I talked to my Doctor about it and she said, "Yeah, the Hospital sells you a postpartum compression garment too", so she was on board with it.
I thought, "You know, this is something that I can do for myself".
It's not just about getting back in my clothes, it's really about having that postpartum support that I knew I was going to need because my belly was so big.
I ended up having a C-section and started wearing my Bellefit 5 or 6 days after I got home and the support was amazing!
Using Bellefit was so much more than I even expected.
When you're trying to pick up your baby, or pickup the car seat, all those things put a lot of stress on your mid-section which has been so stretched out and my girdle really gave me support on my back, AND my stomach.
Bellefit made me feel like I had stability in my core. I would say to anyone who is thinking about it, definitely make the investment.
As moms we do a lot for everybody else, this is something that you can do for yourself.
Bellefit Gave Stability to My Core After C-section and Being Diagnosed with Diastasis Recti
A few months ago I found out that I have a three and a half finger separation around my belly button area. Which makes sense considering how large my belly had gotten during pregnancy.
I'm even happier that I had Bellefit because I would've been in big trouble without it.
Started out with medium, wore it for about9 weeks, then I got the small and ended up ordering the extra small.
Would have to say, get the bundle to save a little bit of money, I wish I'd done that, I just didn't know how fast I would go down in sizes.
If you're thinking about it, you're not sure, definitely go ahead and get yourself the Bellefit, get the bundle.
- I started out at 125 lb. when I was pregnant.
- In the after picture that you're seeing I was about 3 months after I had my baby and I was about 134 lb. Bellefit really set me in a good path to get back in my original size. I didn't think that I would ever get out of Yoga pants, but Bellefit really helped me get that stability, get rid of fluids, swelling and get the support that I'd been missing.
So again, do it, buy yourself one, you will not regret it.
