Is it safe to wear Spanx or body shaping underwear when 3 months pregnant?

My best friend's wedding is July 24th and I'm the maid of honor and I need the dress to fit. Is it safe to wear body shaping underwear/Spanx when you're almost 3 months pregnant?

  • 3 months..? Hmm.. I personally wouldn't, but there are some people that wear tight things all throughout pregnancy.. I would say ask your doctor.

  • I would say no. I love Spanx, but not when you're pregnant.

  • I don't think their would be anything wrong with it at all. My biggest questions would be. Do you think it would be comfortable? I don't think anything being tight on my belly would be comfortable at all during pregnancy.

  • I would not wear any of their regular shapers. They do have a great maternity shaper though. If your tummy isn't quite big enough to fit into the maternity shaper, just go without for the wedding. I wouldn't risk all of that pressure on your abdomen.
