WHEN AND HOW TO USE SHRINKX BELLY POSTPARTUM WRAP
Start wearing Shrinkx Belly as much as possible (day and night) once you are comfortable after delivery. Continue wearing Shrinkx Belly until you’re back to your pre-baby figure or you don’t need additional abdominal support anymore. 5, 6, 7, 8 or more months postpartum? No problem, you can still use Shrinkx Belly.
DOES POSTPARTUM SHRINKING ALSO WORK ON HIPS?
YES! It does. Use UpSpring Shrinkx Hips Ultra on your postpartum hips from delivery through 8 weeks postpartum while your relaxin levels are high. Use Code SB20 to Save $20 when you buy Shrinkx Hips Ultra and Shrinkx Belly together.
HOW DOES SHRINKX BELLY POSTPARTUM BELLY WRAP WORK?
After delivery, your stomach is bloated with water and excess air which were used to nurture your baby in the womb. Postpartum belly wraps help compress your abdomen and support the uterus after childbirth. They also improve circulation, which aids in reducing swelling. Belly wraps can also assist in recovery from Diastatis Recti, a phenomenon in which the abdominal muscles separate and the connective tissue between them is thinned and stretched. This condition affects 80-99% of pregnant women.
For C-section delivery, belly wraps offer an additional benefit because the compression to the wound location can help to ensure that it heals quickly and correctly. Abdominal wraps help women recovering from a vaginal delivery or a C-section with their posture, abdominal support, and self-confidence.
A study published in the International Journal of Medical, Health, Biomedical, Bioengineering and Pharmaceutical Engineering found that postpartum abdominal binders worn for 6 weeks starting on the second day following delivery provided support to stretched ligaments and muscles, supported the spine, and improved posture. The study also found that abdominal binders decreased waist circumference and increased abdominal muscle strength by holding muscles at the right tension and preventing them from becoming flaccid and expanding. Shrinkx Belly uses triple-point compression to help move excess fluid out of the tissues, resulting in less swelling and bloating. As an added bonus, the built-in boning also provides extra support and helps you maintain proper posture for breastfeeding.
