If you just had your baby and are now trying to get back your fabulous pre-pregnancy body, well ladies, you’re in luck! The Belly Bandit is an amazing product that will help you get back your figure. Based on the ancient technique of belly-binding, the Belly Bandit is essentially a abdonimal compression wrap that encourages better posture and abdominal support. It also aids in decreasing bloating caused by water retention and adds support to your legs and back. We love the Bamboo Belly Bandit, an eco-friendly wrap which is anti-microbial, moisture wicking and three times more durable than cotton. With its smooth and lightweight construction, the Belly Bandit can be worn under anything in your closet and won’t irratate your skin. Featured in Redbook, Pregnancy and Newborn, and US Weekly and on urbanbaby.com, it is easy to see why the Belly Bandit has become a favorite of celebs such as Jessica Alba, Angelina Jolie, Gwen Stefani, and Halle Berry.
