I can’t believe I had my third child 5 months ago! It’s gone by so fast. I got right back into my usual routine around 6 weeks after baby was born and that was partly thanks to my SQUEEM Perfect Waist.
Does Squeem waist cincher work?
The answer is YES!
After having my third child, my diastasis recti (space between my abdominal muscles) was about 2-3 inches which is quite a bit on my petite frame. My midwife said she was concerned about it so she gave me special exercises to do and told me to get a belly binder asap or else I would need to find back pain specialists.
So I researched waist cinchers and belly binders for several hours and decided that Squeem Perfect Waist sounded like the solution to my problem. I got a beige one in a size small. It was perfect! Well, it was a little bit of a chore to stuff the extra belly skin in while hooking all the tiny hooks but after a few days of practice, I figured out how to do it quickly and easily.
I wore my Squeem Perfect Waist every single day, at least 8-12 hours a day, for 8 weeks. I am happy to report that it absolutely helped my abdominal muscles come back together! I noticed a significant difference after just one week.
It’s relatively comfortable as far as waist cinchers go. Even though I have a short waist, it didn’t dig into me unless I was sitting on the couch, slouched for a long period of time. I didn’t even remember I was wearing it at all when I was up and walking around and it makes babywearing a lot easier since it helps remind me to suck in my stomach muscles and gives me better posture.
After 8 weeks, my stomach looks and feels normal again. I can no longer feel a space between my abdominal muscles! Since I am quite obviously not back to my pre-pregnancy self, I still wear shapewear like my waist cincher under my clothes to help smooth out muffin tops and belly bulge.
I think EVERY mother-to-be should get one of these belly binders
as a baby shower gift or post-pregnancy present.
It is SO important to support your abs and stomach after having a baby. This can also help if you’ve had a c-section or a multiples pregnancy as that puts even more stress on your abdominal muscles. There are so many benefits to belly binding and if you don’t work to end up needing a mommy makeover and pampering yourself at a medical spa.
You don’t even need to be a mom to wear this! The Squeem Perfect Waist was in The Oprah Magazine, May 2014 edition hailed as “Not Your Grandma’s Corset”. It’s true. I can’t say enough good things about this corset. It was exactly what I needed for my postpartum belly and it has become part of my everyday undergarments wardrobe to help whittle my waist, flatten my tummy and hide the muffin top. Squeem really does make magical lingerie and the Perfect Waist is a must-have for ALL WOMEN!
