People are telling me that I didn’t look like I gave birth because I didn’t gain weight that some others do. Well, you want to know my secret? Just read on. *wink*
Aside from the fact that breastfeeding helped me a lot to shed some pounds after I gave birth, this Wink Belly and Hip shaper also helped me look sexy in an instant!
I’m a CS mom and wearing binder is a must to keep the stitch in place. After my operation, I used one that was provided by the hospital (in blue and white color, can’t remember the brand) which was very uncomfortable on the Velcro part as it was scratching my skin when moving, plus the pain on your wound after your anesthesia diminished. So imagine that excruciating pain! Ughhh!
I knew about this Wink Belly and Hip Shaper thru Girltalk as I’m browsing for the best binder that definitely works and available in the local market. I decided to try this out because of the raves despite its hefty price.
Coincidental, Urban Essentials – the exclusive distributor of Wink Shaper is located near our office. So instead of purchasing it online, I was able to try them first to check my correct size before purchasing it. The owner (forgot her name though) is very accommodating in all of my queries.
Wink’s new Belly & Hip Shaper is longer than the average band, and extends well beyond hip level. It is secured on the bottom and the top with our customary elastic band so it will not ride up when you sit down. This length provides compression at the waist as well as the hips, thereby helping wearers compress and shrink belly and hips UP TO TWO SIZES!
We offer hook and eye closure on the side of this new band that allows for adjustment and tightening as your size goes down. This new band is not just for postpartum use. It can also be worn by anybody wanting to shape, reduce, and define her waistline. Wear it under a cocktail dress or for postpartum recovery, it’s that versatile!
As always Wink’s new band is made from our custom woven fabric, which allows for maximum compression while still retaining its softness and ability to breathe. As a result, it is strong but yet comfortable.
- Seamless design allows band to be worn under clothing
- 2 layers of compression material ensure high levels of compression
- Extends above the waist and below the hips
- 6 panels of Hook and eye closure for adjustment and tightening
- Specially designed to fit the anatomy of a woman’s curves: top of shaper band is shorter than bottom so as to fit the smaller waistline and hips of most women
- Custom woven fabric with top and bottom elastic band so it will not roll up or down
I was 3 months postpartum the first time I wear it and was like my inner organs were compressing and somehow I hardly breathe. I got the smallest size in color black and hooked on the last panel (feeling payat lang that moment LOLS). But after a few minutes, I feel normal again without the feeling that I am wearing a binder because it is very soft. I use it almost every day except when it is in the laundry.
After 4 months of using it, I could say that my tummy was back from my pre-pregnancy size but of course, my stretch marks are still there hehe. I think this is best to wear while working out to see better results.
