New baby newsflash: your ab muscles will probably be totally MIA and you'll still look pregnant (even though the kiddo is swaddled in your arms). Feeling like yourself again takes time, patience, and lots of support--from friends, family, and this must-have belly wrap... Moms are totally obsessed with the Shrinkx Belly Bamboo Charcoal Wrap from UpSpring. Unlike most postpartum bands on the market, this adjustable wrap is made with bamboo charcoal fiber. When it interacts with body heat, your blood flow increases, healing speeds up, and swelling reduces (how's that for an awesome trifecta?). And coupled with the wrap's compression, it feels like a nice warm hug, which every new mom needs. But don't worry, you won't be a sweaty mess - it's moisture-wicking and antibacterial. And if you're feeling sore and bloated (good times, amiright?), the wrap provides awesome support for your core and lower back, and helps your uterus get back to it's original size. Safe for both vaginal deliveries and c-sections, it's recommended to wear the wrap immediately after delivery (as much as you can!) for best results. So ditch the pressure to feel like your "old self" right after having a baby. And snag one of these wraps for much-needed support when you're finding your way to the new (superwoman!) you.

  • Love love love this belly band! Have used this for 2 of my post pregnancy recoveries and I have to say. It brought down my swelling and really helped with my posture while nursing. Oct 05, 2020

  • I used it few times postpartum, but it would fold in on my fat rolls haha and it was very painful Sep 15, 2020

    this does take awhile to get use to but it does the job! Sep 14, 2020

  • This belly band is fine. I wasn't blown away by it, but it serves its purpose. Starts to get uncomfortable for all-day use, but otherwise no complaints. Aug 19, 2020

  • This was so itchy to wear. Aug 18, 2020

  • i have this, have not use it yet Aug 15, 2020

    Not good if you have a short torso Mar 23, 2020

  • this wrap lasted me 4 weeks before i had to throw it away. i just had a baby so tummy is round, this wrap seems to alway curl up on the bottom eventually the wires started sticking out Mar 23, 2020

  • It rolls up and never really stayed on. Pretty pricy to not work as well as I’d hoped. Jan 31, 2020

  • I bought this after my 3rd c section. I liked how it held me in and I feel more secure while standing and walking around. I also think it did help with the swelling in my belly. Jan 02, 2020

  • This was a game changer after having a c section. A amazing product Dec 02, 2019

  • I'll be honest I hate wearing anything around my stomach and this is no exception! I did however get abdominal separation so I wear for workouts and Physical Therapy. You could grab a cheaper one too Nov 29, 2019

    This was my best friend for almost a month after having my c section. I felt like it kept everything in place and also made me look very thing right after having a baby. Great product!!! Oct 30, 2019

  • It helped ease the back pain on my postpartum. However, it is not as comfortable as I would like it to be. My skin got so itchy I had to take it off often. Aug 25, 2019

  • These really do help! Also helped with a hernia during pregnancy Aug 02, 2019

    Utilized this after my first and it helped a ton. Weight lose and stability were top priority for me! Jul 16, 2019

  • Not sure if I cared for the Bamboo Postpartum belly band. It does not fit right and leaves indentations on my skin. Its also not comfortable to wear under your clothing for long periods of time. May 13, 2019

  • I had a C section, and this was very useful! It made me feel like a human again. I felt very floppy and like everything was quite situated, and this helped tremendously. Apr 03, 2019

  • Loved this a few weeks after my csection! Apr 01, 2019

  • I really loved this. There really isn't evidence it makes you thinner. But it provides great support to back postpartum. Must have. Mar 10, 2019

  • Loved this! Helped my stomach go down alot faster than it normally would Feb 27, 2019

  • I’d recommend these for every new mom. It put things back in all the right places and helps get your body back to a new normal Feb 01, 2019

  • I got this to use after my c section and maybe it has worked for other mamas but it was very difficult to stay in place and did not hold up well under clothes. Was very soft though! Sep 25, 2018

  • It itches. It looks bulky under a tshirt. It gave me a rash. I don’t recommend. Jul 04, 2018

  • I think this definitely helps but I rarely wear it because it’s just not comfortable. But what compression garment is comfortable? Jul 03, 2018

  • I want to say that this worked for me but i can never say for sure. But i didn’t find it much more comfortable than other options i tried Jun 06, 2018

  • I love this! I was initially worried I had overspent on an item I would never use. However after having the baby, this was amazing giving me some shape back and helped me strengthen my core again. May 28, 2018

  • too short to wear this during the day without being uncomfortable. I was able to sleep wearing it. May 23, 2018

  • Was very stiff and super itchy. Was nice and snug but it also kept riding up so I returned it before the week was even up. May 23, 2018

  • I wore it to work! It was inconspicuous and helped relieve a little pressure, not a ton but enough. May 18, 2018

  • The only thing I did not like about this is you can see the outline of it under my clothes. May 16, 2018

  • Must have after Csection! This helped with my posture. May 15, 2018

  • Haven’t used it yet waiting for my first week home after due date to try it out. May 09, 2018

Everyone
  • Q: My son is now almost 9 months old. Is it too late to start using it now?

    asked by Lm A. - May 23, 2018

  • I would recommend using it right away after having a baby for the best results.

  • I would recommend using this right after having a baby for the best results.

    Theresa G. - May 23, 2018

  • It is recommended to use immediately after giving birth. I started using it when my twins were 5 months and notice a difference. Try it if you want. Make sure you wear it constantly.
