    I used the 'abdomend' cs recovery belt. I have nothing to compare to as my first was a vb but felt it helped in providing that extra bit of support. I also felt that everything was 'held tight'

    I also looked at the recovery shorts but some reviews I read said they were really difficult to get on in the early days post cs.

    I wore mine starting the day after I had ds for about 3wks

    I can't speak for the SRC recovery shorts as I haven't had my c-section yet (12 weeks away) but I will be getting them as I have been wearing the SRC pregnancy shorts since 11-12 weeks and have found they are amazing. Expensive at $180 but I cannot walk without them due to lower back injury and SPD so well worth it. Hoping the recovery shorts to be just as good. Sorry not first hand feedback!

    I had a large piece of tubi grip as support. Only wore it a couple of days as after that I didn't feel I needed it.

    I had a piece of tubigrip - it was awesome. I actually wore it for some time after my c/s as it stopped that horrible 'jiggle' felling

    I used absolutely nothing..... although, DS was born in winter and I lived in tights so that may have helped.
