Post-partum belly-shrinking bands

Hi - does anyone know anything about "belly bands" that promise to assist in bringing tone back to a post-partum belly? Any specific brand you suggest?

  • WTH? Get a balance ball and do some crunches! I'm 40 and I have two kids and abs like Bruce Lee.

  • I have always been active and toned pre-pregnancy and got back to my pre-pregnancy weight after my first child. I have heard that in ADDITION to ab workouts, this could help. It was just a question.

  • These are much more common in other countries than in America. They do work but they wont "tone up your belly." All they do is assist your uterus and support your muscles/back while things attempt to shift back to normal. Tauts has a really good belly band. Brooke Burke used it so it MUST be good right? :o)
