I just got my postpartum girdle I just had baby 4 days ago. Got home yesterday and wore my girdle for a bit, today I did afternoon.. Took a break and now I'm about to put it back on for a few more hours.. Just wondering if any ladies wear it 24/7 or just during the day.???

. I find it very uncomfortable but love the results lol

I have a Ardyss postpartum girdle .. Don't know if anybody else has one but they're extreme compared to the ones in target or mall lol

Never heard of them!  I'm nearly 5 months post-partum...probably too late for me to get one...

I had a belly band and I wore it for about an hour. It was just too hot and uncomfortable. I tried again when my second was born and didn't last much longer. Both my babies were winter babies too, so it was just the unnecessary clothing that did it. I am seriously considering getting one after this baby is born because its my last pregnancy for the time being and I'm hoping it can help make me less flabby. Idk yet though.

I wore a belly binder all day, except when showering or sleeping, for a couple of months postpartum.

I wore mine all day sometimes, and at night usually. If it got uncomfortable I'd take it off for a while though.

Yeah.. no. I just exercise when I get the okay from my doctor. None of my shit is hanging without the need to purchase anything.

I wore my abdominal wrap 24/7 (except showering, of course) for about 4-5 weeks. Couldn't quite get to the 6 week suggested mark because I have large hips and a small waist and it would just compress my hip bones and not support my core. If I tried to do it tighter, it would make my hips ache.

I have a small umbilical hernia, so I need it unless I want surgery.
