    Getting pre-pregnancy hips back

    Hi. Does anyone have any feedback on "ShrinkX Hips" or similar products to wear around the hips after giving birth to help them go back to where they belong?

    I used shrinks hips + belly bandit, was very very very uncomfortable but both worked really well.
    Was able to wear some of my pre pregnancy jeans in 3 weeks and my skinny jeans in 3 months.
    I used them both like 24/7... Other than taking a shower...

    Thanks for that Nicole! I have heard belly bandit is very uncomfortable but not heard from shrinx hips until now. Would you say one was more uncomfortable than the other? Thinking of picking one only.

    Shrinks hips is for hips and belly bandit is for the belly area..
    Each focus on different area.

    The belly bandit helps a bit of the upper hip area if you wear it low, but shrinkx hips only focus on hips..
    I'm not sure if it's true, but heard the window to shrink the hip bones is only 6-8 weeks post pregnancy.
    Why dont u get both and alternate?
    But if I have to choose one.. I'd choose the belly bandit.

    If you have a ntural birth then the belly bandit is ok, but for c sections this is the superior product

    Because it the girdle extends all the way down and there is no end piece digging into your wound. The belly bandit bunches up and it's so uncomfortable.

    Nicole, how did you manage to wear both the Belly Bandit and Shrinkx Hips under your clothing when you went out?
