    Postnatal corset

    Can anyone recommend a good postnatal corset/girdle? Thanks.

    They sell some at Eugene Club in Central. I also found that the "slimming shapewear" at Marks and Spencer was very good for holding things in, particularly 6 weeks after my c-section. Spanx are also good.

    Spanx is good, but works better after your have already slimmed down and just want a smoother line.

    Post-natal, if you would like to hold your tummy in, the Flexees girdle is good, you can get it from Private Shop.

    Depends whether you want a 'heavy duty' corset or an easier option. I got a 'heavy duty' version from Mama1010 (i think that is the name.) they have a counter within Toys R Us in TST. You can get the full set (3 pieces, the body which cinches in your upper body, the waist corset, and a bermuda 'spanx like girdle). You only put it on after your wound has healed (if you have a c-section), the hospital will provide a standard elastic type girdle a few days after giving birth. Spanx was a great option when the weather is hot and when you cannot be bothered with the heavy duty girdle.
    Basically all girdles work well, as long as you wear it. Many of my girlfriends bought many fancy girdles and only end up wearing it a couple of times as they found it too hot and stifling.

    By the way the heavy duty version is really troublesome for loo visits... give yourself lots of time for getting it off and putting it back on! Good luck!

    I recently had abdominal surgery (hernia repair) + excess skin removal and I have Marena. Have been happy with it (and had to wear it for 6 weeks).
