Online Window Shopping: Belly Bandit

:-•:*"*:•.-:¦:-•* Greetings *•-:¦:-•:*'''*:•-:
It’s another one of those nights where I can’t sleep! I’ve actually made peace with the notion that I’m not going to sleep another single night until my unborn child comes out. So, what else to do but window shop online, when I can’t sleep and there’s nothing on tele? Yes, I’m having a session of online window shopping and one product that’s caught my eye is the Belly Bandit.

I’m actually surprised that tonight is the first time I’ve come across the Belly Bandit. After reading a little about it on the Belly Bandit website, I decided to look at some reviews and wow, am I intrigued? Very.
The Belly Bandit is tummy compression belt that fits around the post-partum tummy, it’s to be worn round the clock except for in showers or baths, for six to eight weeks after the delivery. And use of the Belly bandit is to start within twenty-four to forty-eight hours of delivery. The Belly Bandit works by constantly applying medical-grade pressure to your tummy which can strengthen, tighten your muscles, reduce stretch –marks and improve posture. Other claims the Belly Bandit has made is that it:
“Helps shrink the belly, waist and hips
Adds support to the upper body while breastfeeding
Comforts the mid-section after a C-section
Helps the body lose inches faster
Helps minimize stretch marks
Adds support to the back and legs
Accelerates the healing process
Streamlines the silhouette to look slimmer in clothing
Boosts self confidence
Aids in decreased bloating and swelling
Reminds you to utilize your core muscles
Helps to gently persuade muscles back together”
My post-partum tummy is something I’m worried about as my tummy wasn’t in great shape before I became pregnant and I’m scared that’s it’s going to be worse after the deliver. So, the idea of something helping me at least get it back in to where it was before I got pregnant sounds great and very ideal. But, where I’m unsure about the Belly Bandit is the price and that I might need two Belly Bandits. I don’t mind spending the money if the product is worth it but I’m a little wary about having to buy two. Buying two isn’t a requirement but it’s often the case that the user shrinks out of the first one very quickly! At £47.79 for the original and more for the bamboo version it’s quite a pricey piece of kit.
The Belly Bandit website recommends the best time to measure for the right Belly Bandit size is at eight and a half months but as I’m already in my ninth month it’s recommended that I measure myself and subtract a few inches (three to five inches). Also because it’s best used right after delivery, I'm going to need to pack into my hospital bag if I’m going to use it, thus I need to quickly decide whether I’m going to take the plunge or not!
So, what do you think, worth it or not?
As much as I know I won’t be able to sleep anytime soon, my poor eyes can’t take the laptop light anymore so until next,

  1. Does anybody have a working token code for a belly bandit? I am hoping to get a site with free shipping as well. Any suggestions are valued. If you could post the code that would be enormous!
