"I wore my Belly Bandit within the first hour after giving birth. I wore it most of the time my first month. Then slacked off. I started off with a medium and by week 6 it was too big so I purchased a small last week and I am wearing it now. I gained 18lbs during my pregnancy and by week 4 post pregnancy I had lost 20lbs. I love BB and have recommended it to my 3 expecting friends as well as ladies in my group. Great product."
