    Default Support band for after

    Hi ladies,
    I'm due to have csection #2 in about 4.5-5 weeks time and am looking into getting a support band for afterwards. I had a horrible time with my first and the only thing that has eased stomach pain around my scar since then has been support/shape wear and now this pregnancy I have been wearing maternity underwear that reaches my boobs! I think I've narrowed it down to abdomend or src recovery shorts. Does anyone have any feedback on these or other types? Tia

    I didn't use anything last time but am looking at getting an abdomend this time.

    Also found something called Gadgetgal maternity which looks very similar but haven't heard if it's any good.

    I used the src recovery shorts and loved them. Helped my tummy bounce back really quickly and the pressure of them helped the pain. I got sick shortly after my cs and the coughing would have been agony without the shorts

    How did it go Mummabear90? I'm due to have my first C-section (3rd baby) in 7 weeks and am looking at the abdomend... I'm eager to hear if you decided on using it? Thanks

    I ended up going with the src recovery shorts and they've been amazing! I had my LO on the 21st of November and on the second day I put them on and am still wearing them although I probably don't need them anymore. They helped so much, felt like I had so much extra support and I was back to normal after 5 days. It didn't even feel like I'd just had a csection. The only thing was the sizing is a bit of a drama. When I measured myself to order them it said I should have been the largest size, which is I think a 16-18 after you convert the cms, but I was still fitting easily into size 12 maternity clothing. I ordered the large and they came overnight but were too big (I pulled them up to under my belly when pregnant) so I sent them back and got the medium but could have probably went for a small. The first few times I put them on I needed help but after that I was fine. Good luck

    @Ants how did you find the abdomend? Did you get the kit with both or just one band?
