After giving birth, a woman’s body changes, especially around the waist area and down. New mamas need all the support they can get, and a postpartum corset can help you both for aesthetic and practical reasons.
Corsets support swollen ovaries that come postpartum and help shrink them back to standard size. They also help relieve back pain after delivering your little one.
A postpartum corset also helps in binding the muscles, uterus, and other organs to help them return to pre-pregnancy size and position. If you have loose and floppy skin, it can also do the trick in tucking them in.
Now, if you’re keen to use a postpartum corset, there are a few things you should look out for before you take the shopping plunge!
How to choose the best postpartum corset?
1. Comfortable fit
When buying a corset, make sure to choose the correct size. A suitable corset must make you feel slimmer and compress your belly without feeling like your breathing is restricted. Some girdles and waist trainers can leave you bruises if they’re too tight.
A common mistake would be buying a corset that’s too small for your size. Not only will it feel uncomfortable, but it will also be counter-productive.
Corsets of good material are vital so the wearer can feel comfortable wearing them. A suitable corset will not make you feel stuffy and sweaty whenever you use it.
It pays to buy a good quality corset. Consider a well-made corset a significant investment. Aside from comfortability, make sure that it is durable.
A good corset will not easily tear off or loosen. Plus, choosing a corset made of natural fibers that are kind to the skin is a must instead of manufactured fibers that tend to be itchy and uncomfortable.
Some corsets are designed to be easier to conceal so they can be worn under clothes. However, some clothes are also a bit bulkier, making them more suitable for wear at home or under loose dresses.
Get the corset that will suit your needs. If you’re looking for a postpartum corset, it should be adjustable so you can track your progress and minimize the need to buy a new one every time your belly shrinks.
