    A friend of my sister just had her baby 2 weeks ago and I couldn't believe how good she looked I asked her if she wore a girlde and she said that she did, she was wearing it and showed me it. She said that they are really uncomfortable. But that they really do make a difference. She said that she put on her girdle a couple of hours after the daughter was born, she wears it all day and all night. I am deff gonna wear one.
