Your Letters

Mariko, you were right! The size 3 was perfect.  Thank you for all your help.  The empathetic approach you take with helping your customers is rare these days.  I feel like I have gained a friend through this whole postpartum girdle shopping experience.  I could not have gone through this alone. See you at the beach in an itsy bitsy bikini! Marianne F. Long Beach, CA

I had my baby 9 weeks ago and I’ve just returned to work. I had a c-section and still feel uncomfortable in my own skin. I feel like my stomach is hanging out and my c-section scar is still sensitive. Will any of your products still help me?

Congratulations on the birth of your child!  I know from firsthand experience that 9 weeks postpartum, especially following a cesarean delivery, things are far from normal. And guess what, you and I are not alone either.  Many women lack the sense of “held-togetherness” that they may have taken for granted before pregnancy and delivery.

Aesthetic Surgery After a Gastric Bypass Procedure

Question:  I had gastric bypass surgery and lost 165 pounds.  Consequently, I needed a tummy tuck, breast lift, and arm lift.  I’ve already had the tummy tuck.  In two weeks I’m having the arm and breast lift. When I asked my doctor about wearing a compression garment, he said to buy an athletic bra and that he will wrap my arms in ace bandages.  I will have to wear the ace bandages for two weeks, but then he says I can wear a tight pair of gym socks on my arms. Gym socks? Ace bandages?  Do you have any suggestions for me?

I Need Help Selecting a Product

Question: I had SmartLipo™ and a breast lift. My doctor put me in two garments but I would prefer to use just one. Can you recommend a product and help me figure out what size to buy? Answer: Congratulations on your surgery.  I’m sure you are well on your way to looking and feeling fabulous! I would love to help you find exactly the right garment for your needs.

If I Didn’t Have a C-Section, Are There Any Benefits From Wearing One Of Your Products?

Congratulations on the birth of your child!  Women who give birth vaginally face an entirely different set of challenges than women who give birth by Cesarean Section.  During pregnancy, labor, and birth, the symphysis pubis, where the right and left sides of the hips meet near the vaginal area, separates to varying degrees with the ultimate goal of passing a child from the uterus through the birth canal. Postpartum, some women can suffer a longer term, abnormal separation of the symphysis pubis resulting in pelvic girdle pain.

Toss The Belly Band; Give The Postpartum Girdle A Try.

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.

Seeing Is Believing!

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.
