BODY CHANGER!! Belly Bandit Review

by Jennie on October 13, 2011

THIS PRODUCT HAS BEEN A BODY CHANGER POST PREGNANCY! I have been waiting to post this review and shout it from the roof tops!! If you read this blog you know this is my second baby so I have had something to compare this to. When I had Cody, it took me FOREVER to even start to feel good about my body so I was determined to do things a little different this time. One of the products I discovered was the Belly Bandit. I had learned about it from the Kardashians. When I looked the product up, I was amazed at the before and afters!!  Although it is a little pricey, I figured it would be totally worth it if it could shrink my midsection!!

SO… I brought it with me to the hospital and was planning on putting it on right after I had the baby. I ended up not putting it on until the next day which I now regret because once I put it on I felt immediate relief. It not only held everything in, but it helped my posture and felt so good on my back. It really was amazing!! I WISH I would have taken my before pick before I actually put it on…. the pic below is about two hours after I put it on for the first time and I COULD NOT BELIEVE how much my tummy had already shrunk! It was crazy!

I was religious about how much I wore it… basically, I took it off to shower and that was it for the first 6 weeks! I had it on day and night and I could notice my midsection shrinking little by little. The dramatic changes actually started to slow around week 4, but I still noticed small changes after that. After 6 weeks I started wearing at night only and continue to put it on at night when I sleep. Even the hubs commented on how great I was looking and he said “man, that belly thing must be working”! You can read all about how it works on their website!!

I tried two different belly bandits: the BFF and the Bamboo. (my tummy shrunk so much I had to buy the small because the medium- which was too tight to even put on the first time I had to lay down just to get it to fasten- was too big after a couple of weeks!!!). I have to say they were both very soft on my skin and wicked away the sweat from my body. The BFF was a little more bulky on my body than the bamboo, but they both held me in so that I looked skinner in my clothes with it on!! What I liked about the BFF though is that it has two parts you can fasten so I was able to make it smaller on the top and larger on the bottom which was great on my hourglass frame. The two things I could say I didn’t like about it is that you do have to hand wash if you get anything on them and that they do “roll” a little after you have worn it for a few days. EVEN with these few things, it is totally worth getting!! I really cannot say enough good things about this product!!

Although I didn’t want to show the world my tummy, I felt I had to for the cause :) My before and afters may not be as amazing as some of them on their website, but I can tell you my tummy at 7 weeks is what my tummy at a year looked like after I had Cody. It has made such a dramatic difference and I cannot thank belly bandit enough for making such a phenomenal product!!
