Support for... stomach. Whether we choose a bandage of

the bandage Is necessary? If yes that what is better? And how it is correct to pick up and carry it not to do much harm to itself and the kid? As the stomach becomes more and heavier, practically each pregnant woman asks these questions.

chose a dorodovy bandage


the Dorodovy bandage - pants are “pregnant“ shorts with the dense elastic tape sewed in them - a belt which stretches in process of rounding of a tummy, adjoins to area of a waist, and in front passes under a stomach, giving it necessary support without squeezing. The tape is wider, the bandage is more effective. The forward insert has the overestimated waistline, completely closes a stomach and “grows“ together with it, without putting upon it pressure. At choice bandages not only in the form of shorts are offered, but also in the form of shorts - in them is cozier and warmer in cold weather. Among the “advanced“ models - bandages - the shorts made without seams, having an on-off lower fastener thanks to which the bandage can be not removed at visit of a toilet (rather simply to undo buttons or hooks). Not only practical, but also beautiful underwear the models trimmed with laces in different color options are offered lovers: white, black, shades beige (cream, Champagne).

Bandages of this design are very popular

among pregnant women: they are simple in use, fit well, are not allocated under clothes. But, choosing them, it is necessary to consider several nuances. The bandage - shorts can be put on both a naked body instead of pants, and them. In its first case it will be necessary to erase daily, and therefore it is necessary to get, at least, two bandages on change. If the stout woman or pregnancy is followed by a set of extra kilos and hypostases, then in certain cases by the end of term bandage shorts begin “to crash“ into hips and to rub skin.

of the Price of such bandages depend on a trademark, material, existence of additional “options“, and, therefore, quality and functionality of a bandage. Therefore even if at first sight it seems that all models are similar at each other, they will cost differently. So, bandages of the Russian production (FEST, Bliss, Mama &Baby) are quite available - from 400 to 700 - 800 rub. In the same price range bandages from Belarus (Milavits) and Latvia (TONUS ELAST) settle down. For 1100 - 1500 rub it is possible to become the owner of a bandage from Chicco (Italy) and MAAM (Russia). The German Anita trademark estimates the production at 2500 - 2800 rub

should Put on a bandage, ideally, only lying on a back, having slightly raised hips. Question only in how to follow this rule outdoors. It is no secret, that the pregnant woman should use a public toilet quite often. On this case experts advise to deviate back, to slightly raise a stomach a hand and to press it then right there to record this situation a bandage.

the Dorodovy bandage - the belt is the elastic tape which is fixed a flypaper under a stomach or sideways thanks to what the bandage can easily be adjusted “to itself“, having chosen necessary degree of an utyazhka. The tape - a belt is put on underwear or over tights. It must be kept in mind that the wide and dense supporting tape will give the best effect and to be deformed at a sock less (to roll down, gather in folds, to crash into a body). Such facilitated option of a bandage is especially convenient in the summer. Tapes of the Russian production cost an average of 350 - 500 rub. while similar models from Emma - Jane (England) and Chicco will cost already 850 and 1100 rub

there are belts - tapes which have the insert from cotton jersey closing a stomach (such models still call a bandage - an apron). Nice on the touch material well fits a tummy, stretching in process of its increase therefore the bandage is more precisely fixed on a figure, it can be carried with shorts - pass. The bandage - an apron from TONUS ELAST costs only 330 rub, from FEST and Bliss - 400 - 500 rub, MAAM and Anita offer such model respectively for 1100 and 1800 rub

the Universal bandage is used both before childbirth, and after them. It represents a reversible belt of an orthopedic design at which one party is much wider another, is strengthened by a rigid slip and elastic stones. Lateral valves - flypapers allow to regulate the size and degree of an utyazhka of a belt, without taking off it. During pregnancy the bandage is put on by wide part back, for the maximum support and unloading of a back, and narrow clasp under a stomach, providing also to it reliable support. After the delivery (and Cesarean section including) the belt turns over “back to front“ - and now its wide part serves for an utyazhka and fixing of a stomach, and narrow is clasped on a back.


Such bandage “2 in 1“ is simply necessary for women with a problem back and is good, first of all, the practicality: its acquisition gives the chance to save significantly, instead of two bandages (prenatal and postnatal) only one universal is bought. Thanks to lateral utyazhka, the woman can put on a bandage in postnatal situation and independently, but nevertheless for more exact fixing it is better if the back flypaper to it is clasped by the assistant.


Choosing a dorodovy bandage in the form of a belt, it is necessary to consider that it will be especially effective if the stomach increased already enough (from 5 months and later), and on early terms, leaky recorded under still small tummy, it can badly “work“ - to move down, rise up, to be overwound during the walking, inclinations, squats. Valves with fasteners - flypapers, at all the convenience, sometimes are allocated from - under clothes (especially summer), doing a bandage “visible“ moreover and stick to elastic tights, a blouse, a jacket and spoil them.

“Station wagons“ will cost on average 500 - 650 rub though is cheaper - 220 rub from Mama &Baby, 350 - 500 rub from TONUS ELAST. But is also more expensive - for example, orthopedic belts from REHARD TECHNOLOGIES (Germany) cost 1000 rub.

Before purchase of a bandage (both prenatal, and postnatal) consultation at the doctor is necessary for
of the Rule of use of a bandage.
the New bandage before use needs to be washed and further always to keep clean.
As a rule, begin to carry a dorodovy bandage from 4 - 5 months of pregnancy or later, and postnatal (if there are no contraindications) it is possible to put on in day of childbirth.
needs to Put on a bandage in a prone position on a back.
In a bandage it is impossible to go the whole day. It is removed for the night, and in the afternoon whenever possible each three hours do a break at least for 20 - 30 minutes.
If the woman began to feel the unpleasant squeezing feelings, shortage of air, the child began “to be pushed“ uneasily and strongly, the bandage needs to be weakened or removed immediately.

the Postnatal bandage - mother again in shape!

If to begin to use a postnatal bandage at once after the delivery (in the first days and weeks), it will allow the woman to return quicker to muscles and skin of a stomach a former tone, will help a back to cope with loadings, will improve a silhouette in a stomach, a waist, hips, buttocks.

Postnatal bandages (only on doctor`s orders!) are shown to the women who underwent Cesarean section and other operations on abdominal organs, and also having diseases of a back, kidneys, etc. The postnatal bandage can be used also in the cosmetic purposes as it conceals shortcomings of a figure and emphasizes its advantages.

chose a postnatal bandage


the Postnatal bandage - the belt is wide (from 15 - 18 to 25 - 30 cm) the elastic belt covering all area of a stomach to hips and which is buttoned on flypapers in front or sideways. Such bandage not too expensive (domestic models cost 500 - 700 rub, import - about 1000 rub) possesses the good dragging-away ability, in case of Cesarean section promotes formation of a strong postoperative hem and reduces risk of emergence of postoperative hernias of a forward belly wall. But it has also minuses. First of all, in process socks it is in the habit to be lifted up, being displaced from a stomach up. For the same reason it is inconvenient to put on it under trousers. The stones sewed in a belt in many respects will save it from formation of folds, however will not always be able to hold it on the place (especially at the active movements). There is also one more juicy detail. Made of a dense continuous cloth, the bandage does not allocate a waistline, and to crown it all with an identical force drags away both a stomach and buttocks, creating “effect of a flat bottom“ which will be especially expressed at thin women.

Postnatal bandage pants (pants - grace) are pants with the dragging-away forward insert in a stomach. Material from which they are sewed possesses high degree of tensile properties in combination with elasticity. The bandage perfectly keeps on a figure, does not slip, it can be put on under any clothes instead of underwear - it will be imperceptible. Well cleans, reduces the volume of a waist and hips, slightly tightens buttocks. The model with the lower fastener can be not removed at visit of a toilet. Bandage shorts in which there is an opportunity to regulate stomach utyazhka force by means of multiposition lateral fasteners on hooks or flypapers are more functional.

Difference of corset bandage pants is the short waist, existence of internal inserts and utyazhek stones of various length thanks to what there is the correct redistribution of pressure upon all problem zones (and not just on a stomach), to muscles and skin the former tone comes back, and beautiful proportions of a figure are formed. The stomach becomes flat, the waist decreases and there is a graceful transition from it to hips, and buttocks look roundish and tightened.

the Bandage - Bermuda shorts
with the extended line of a hip (length of “panties“ reaches almost knees) answers

also for beautiful legs, visually “hiding“ extra kilos, smoothing displays of cellulitis and extensions. That the bandage was convenient to be put on and removed, the lateral zipper which, in turn, is fixed by hooks is provided in a design; in some models there is also the lower fastener.

Postnatal bandages - pants also have a wide spacing of the prices: the TONUS ELAST models cost 400 - 600 rub, FEST bandages - 600 - 800 rub, Bliss - 650 - 950 rub, MAAM and Chicco - 1200 - 1500 rub. High price level - 2800 - 3000 rub

Is bought by

from Anita correctly

Main that “the suit sat“ . Correctly chosen bandage will “fit“ the woman like a glove, without bringing her any discomfort and remaining imperceptible irrespective of whether she sits, costs or goes. Only in this case it really “works“ for advantage to mother and her kid. Upon purchase it is necessary to pay attention and to such moments: it is easy and convenient to remove and put on a good bandage, it does not spoil a figure and is not allocated from - under clothes. - stones, internal seams and laces it is necessary to pay special attention to inserts - they should not stick out and be pricked.

the Size matters! If during two - three days did not occur accustomings to a bandage, it disturbs, presses, the woman just feels it, so alas, there was a mistake to the choice, such bandage cannot be carried. How to avoid it? First of all, the bandage has to approach precisely by the size. As different producers have a numbering and designation of the sizes different, it is necessary just to measure a grasp of hips under a stomach and to find in the dimensional table (it is on packing) corresponding to the obtained data the size. It is not necessary to take a bandage “for growth“: producers already put in a design physiological increase in a stomach and hips for each size.

It is important where to buy. Considering thin specifics of purchase, it is better to do it in drugstores or specialized shops. Skilled consultants will help the woman to take correctly measurements, will tell about features of this or that model, will orient in the prices. In shops it is possible even to try on several models of bandages, having chosen the most convenient for itself a style and model. And here in the Internet - shop it is necessary to order a bandage carefully. Here easily it is possible to be mistaken not only with a size. The delivered purchase can not be pleasant in a sock, to the touch and to be much less attractive, than in the Internet - the catalog. Without fitting and “without looking“ it is possible to buy quietly only familiar model, for example the second bandage on change. Otherwise the customer strongly risks, including money and nerves (not to mention health), bandages to return and an exchange are not subject to !

Unfortunately, good bandages cost much, and many women buy them being in the use. It is possible to do it only as a last resort. During service to the first hostess a bandage, “having adapted“ to her forms, already for certain was deformed, stretched (especially models with high content of cotton), having lost the functional qualities, and flypapers, most likely, already wore out or got littered and therefore are badly clasped. And besides, to carry someone else`s underwear it is unhygienic.

Of what they are made by

? As for materials, of course, the more as a part of a cotton product, the better. It is comfortable, hypoallergenic, eco-friendly, well passes air. However, considering feature of bandage products (elastic elasticity for the best utyazhka, support, fixing), purely cotton they cannot be (belts with lacings, stones, buttons, metal inserts which - where still sold in a drugstore, is not counted). Therefore in modern models of bandages, along with natural materials (cotton and viscose), also hi-tech artificial fibers - polyamide (PAM), microfiber, Meryl, Tactel, polyester, an elastane, lycra are used. Thanks to them products become strong, well stretch, right there accepting an initial state, improve appearance and facilitate leaving: bandages well transfer frequent washing, are not deformed after it and quickly dry, some can even be not ironed. The most important - materials of new generation will not do much harm future and only - only to the taken place mother. So, microfiber, Meryl, Tactel on the properties are very close to cotton: they are easy, hypoallergenic, nice on the touch, allow a body to breathe, but at the same time stronger also leave skin always dry, without absorbing moisture (as cotton), and passing it through themselves. It is important as at pregnant women intensive sweating is often observed. For especially sensitive women inclined to skin allergic reactions, dermatitis, and also suffering from the milkwoman it is necessary to choose models with an internal lining or at least a gusset from cotton.
