I hate my p.preg belly hanging down. I need a band or something to suck it all in! Spanx? Belly Bandit?Any suggestions?

I'm exercising as well, but it's not exactly attractive having a bulge over my jeans! I almost considered wrapping huge ace bandages around my stomach just to keep it somewhat flat! There had to be something that works...and doesn't open or rip or unhinge when you sit or bend over.

  • The belly bandit is for after you have your baby. The compression I think is too much. You are only going to get bigger. Embrace it. It's really ok.

  • Post pregnancy? Spanx worked really well for me after I had my twins.

  • Post pregnancy. It's been 9 months since i had my son, and i'm just looking for a way to feel a little bit better about my appearance! I totally embrace what my body has been through, but i still want to fit into decent sized jeans too!

  • There are a lot of shapers out there that are helpful. Kohls has some and they are usually very reasonably priced.
