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.

As all new Moms know, our bodies don't return to their old selves as soon as the baby is born. What to do then about that stubborn midsection? Luckily for us, an amazing new product called Yummie Tummie has hit store shelves.

Created to be a tank and shaper in one, the Yummie Tummie is the essential item to own after birth - they even make a nursing tank version! The tank has a 100% cotton bust and hip panel that appear to be a normal tank but it's the secret spandex midsection panel which does all the magic.
