I got this item in hopes to help me after I had my daughter. However while in hospital after having her I was unable to put it on. I wasn't able to put it on til she was a week or so old. Even then it did not fit right and I had a hard time using it to begin with. I am sure if I was smaller this would have been a great buy. but I am bigger and it didn't fit right. but as everyone knows with having a newborn and school and whatnot I forgot to try and return postpartum girdle. If I ever had another child and was smaller I am sure it would have worked out great.This product is well constructed. The legs roll up as you bend over and sit down though, so it shows through a tight fitting skirt.
Please check postpartum belt for more information.
