i had a c-sec and requested an abdominal binder afterwards. mine was from the hospial but my ob said other brands would probably be ok too. i felt more confident in moving while wearing it- i didn't worry that every cough or laugh would split me open. felt nice on the flabby tummy too.
did it help your stomach go back to normal? thats the main reason i'm looking into one. :)
i don't think there was a difference- i didn't wear one with my first baby. bf'ing helped everything shrink quickly.
I bought the Medela belly wrap. My sister told me it was a good one!
