I think this is a silly question, Altho I know there is no such thing.... Go figure... )

Is anyone wearing one of these or thinking about it?

I didn't have the tummy binder or the belly band and my tummy feels so loose and just hanging around.. Hard to describe. I was thinking about getting a girdle. Thinking it will help pull my belly up till the swelling goes away and it tightens back up...

What do you all think? Have you tried it?

I've read other post that have recommended it, try doing a search , I know I saw one under pre op for undies and people mentioned girdles. I love my belly band, I only use it when I feel tender or really swollen, will plan to use it when i return to work.

I use my belly binder, and the swelly belly band. My also recommended the supportive panties that pregnant ladies wear. He said is gives the right amount of support exactly where you need it. I know what you mean by no support. When I don't have one of my bands on, I feel almost as if things are going to fall out of me. I think it also helps me be less swollen by the end of the day. Good luck

I used the swelly belly band and control top underwear for a while after my surgery. I did find relief with them.

I hope you have a speedy recovery,
