A small percentage of women are lucky enough to re-gain their pre-pregnancy figure after giving birth in as little as a few weeks.
Unfortunately, we can’t all be those women. What about the rest of us who are left with a bulge around our stomach area, or other less-than-toned parts of our bodies?
Enter postpartum (post pregnancy) shapewear. There are a wide range of options that are designed to control all parts of your post-baby areas including your tummy, bum, thighs, hips and even your upper arms too.
Boosts your self-esteem
As a new Mom, it’s natural for you to feel self-conscious and a little insecure about the way your body has now transformed. Firstly – don’t be harsh on yourself, because you just had a baby! It’s going to take a while for your muscles and skin to get back to more of a normal state.
Shapewear is a great option to help your feel more confident in your outward appearance, while you wait for your shape to normalise.
Helps your muscles to recover
After giving birth, your abdomen is deflated and it will take a long time for your muscles to contract, and your sin to regain the flexibility it had pre-pregnancy.
Shapewear that fits around your stomach and waist area can help to hold those muscles and skin in the correct position, and train them to recover faster.
Comfortable to wear
There are so many comfortable options when it comes to shapewear these days, made with high quality material that will feel soft and smooth against your skin. This can be particularly beneficial after a C-section or difficult delivery, so you can feel more comfortable and supported too.
Remember, you must consult with your doctor before opting to wear any kind of shapewear that sits tightly around your body. Your body must be properly healed from delivery – always ask your doctor when in doubt.
