    TBH I'd wait and see what it's like afterwards before you order anything. It may well go back a lot better and easier than you think.

    you may be surprised hun, I thought I would have a belly that hung down, when I looked down after having Ella it looked normal! I was so surprised at how it "retracted" back into place haha. Are you breatfeeding ? becuase this really helps!

    I breastfeed, in fact still am and I still look like I have a sack of spuds on my front. This is something I am going to look into, I saw the stall too and it looked good, especially about supporting your back as this was something I struggled with.

    I really can not recommend this company!

    I ordered two belts from this them, they came but were a completely different size to the ones ordered. To return them there is only a phone number on the web page, which I rang every day for over a week, there was no reply!

    When I did get someone, they said they were in Italy to try on the belt, even though it says not to on the web page and ring back if there was a problem.

    Let's just say I am still ringing and again there is no reply!!

    I can honestly say I have never received such bad service. I now have two belts that are too big that I can't exchange and they cost me over £30.00

    I am the sort of person who always worries about my weight..

    So im really afraid of getting a saggy stomach, because sad it sounds (I no) i think it would make me feel depressed as i am a petite size 8 - 10 & always have been. But i did hear breasfeeding was excelant not just for the baby :happydance:

    I worry about my weight as well, and Im really worried about this too. Im not very big (yet) but I cant help but think the worst. I know my little boy will more than make up for the weight gain but Id still like my OH to fancy me! lol I didnt even know those belts existed to be honest, so I might give one a try.

    Not from that company though by the looks of it.

    I am not worried about weight, that can be lost. I am worried about the sagginess. I had a lovley flat tummy before I got pregnant. I will just have to wait and see.

    Hi, I have just joined baby and bump and have already found it really interesting! Keep up the good work!

    I have been looking at the support belts too, as my first two children were born in Greece and everybody there wears a support belt the minute they have given birth and swear they help to get you back in shape. I must admit I poo poohed the idea as after all I grew up in the UK for heavens sake not a little island in the middle of the Med that still thinks its in the 20th Century! Now on my 3rd very unexpected pregnancy I am re-thinking! Have you ever seen a fat greek girl? Believe me, most of them are lovely and slender..............I so want to be back in my size 14 jeans again!

    I still had a saggy line after my son but nothing was hanging and even if you worked at it and had no more kids I'm sure it would be taught again in a couple of years. My mum's 48, had 3 kids and has a washboard stomach lol.

    I was talking to my OH the other day and got a bit paranoid that I might struggle to loose the weight or have really saggy boobs... and he started talking diets and excercise plans!!!

    Not what I wanted to hear! So after a huge hormon driven sobbing session he asked me what he was suposed to say? I said that perhaps that he would still love me would have been a good start and he said "well I thought that was obvious" .... Arrrggg!!! Men.
