I don't think folks in general understand the importance of good compression garments. I read the document on your website when I first had surgery. I encountered severe issues with fluid and was looking for a garment that would help. I found it in Design Veronique! I just re-read the information yesterday to remind myself because I've had subsequent surgery and don't want to encounter any problems.
I have twins so it is unbelievably busy at my house!! I love the c-section garment! It has helped me immensely and made the recovery process so much more comfortable. I can’t say enough how much I love this product. Thank you so much!

I had a new mother in for a fitting today that was 4 weeks postpartum and had been using a belly wrap since delivery. Initially the belly wrap offered some support but, after losing the majority of her pregnancy weight gain, she found it rather bulky under her pre-pregnancy clothing. I could see the belly binder wasn’t doing mom’s figure any justice. After losing her pregnancy weight she wanted to show off her body, not cover up to hide the belly wrap.
I had a new mom come in for a garment fitting today. She delivered a healthy 7 pound baby girl on September 5th 2009. Mom was in labor for 3 days before her doctor decided to do a C-section. As you can imagine, this was quite a traumatic labor and delivery. She was almost 4 weeks postpartum but still looked about 5-6 months pregnant because her abdominal muscles were so weak. As of this morning, she was still having a difficult time getting in and out of bed. In fact, she used a little pillow to apply pressure on her incision to make it less painful when she got up.
I spoke to a new Dad today that said he was in really BIG trouble. His wife was still in the hospital recovering from a Cesarean delivery. His wife had complained to him that her stomach was quite sore and that she needed a postpartum belly wrap or support garment to hold her together. So he left the hospital briefly to go girdle shopping.
I spoke with a new mother yesterday. “Marsha” just delivered her second child less than a week ago. She came across our website as she was researching and comparison shopping for postpartum girdles and post pregnancy belly binding methods. Marsha made it quite clear to me that all she cared about was making her belly flat, like it was
“Bob” was clearly uncomfortable when he called me last week. I knew immediately what he was looking for but these conversations are always delicate – so I let him set the pace. “I, um, need something for under my t-shirt,” he stammered. “I have a lot of discomfort when I’m trying to workout and my doctor recommended that I call you.” Bob’s discomfort was clearly more than physical.
Athletic bras are popular options among many patients after having a breast augmentation because they are made with soft fabrics and do not have underwires. Underwire bras are a big no-no after a breast augmentation because the breast tissue that sits on the wire can become permanently marked. An athletic bra is nothing like a postsurgical bra.
