written by Catherine Anderson

Didn’t you just have a baby? What are you eating or using? You sure you just had a baby?

Well, these are the questions that will be asked weeks after using the best postpartum girdle in the market. We know this because we tried out some postpartum girdles and we have reviews of the best girdles in this article.

Looking good postpartum is one of the toughest things to pull off. Other than the few hours of sleep daily and the incessant cries of your newborn, looking good is almost never a consideration or thought that crosses your mind.

However, as you may have heard a hundred times before, you feel good when you look good. If you are looking for a cheap and an easy alternative to look good, then you have to get a postpartum belly wrap.

Even though there is documentation that shows that it will take you some months before you start slimming, you can at least reduce that sagging belly with a girdle. Unconvinced yet?

Here are the other benefits of using a postpartum girdle:

  • Good Mood
    You instantly feel good when you like your body. Even when you ignore the added weight plus the sagging tummy, unconsciously, this eats you up. So, when you finally begin to see a trimmer body in the bathroom or dressing room's mirror, your mood will lift.

  • Pain Management
    We will not describe the pain. You know all about the back pains, the occasional sharp pains in the uterus, and the pain of the healing wound after the C-section. All this pain will go away once you have a girdle. Girdles are also good for healing after diastasis recti.

  • Ease of Nursing
    The postpartum girdles add comfort to nursing. Top this comfort with you pregnancy pillow and voila, nursing magic, a comfortable back, and a happy baby.

You can choose the best girdle by looking at the comfort levels, the cost, the sizing, breathability, fabric, and the effects on the belly, waist and the pelvic region.

Take a look at these five postpartum girdles:
