I had a TLH and wear my abdominal binder every day. Makes my belly feel secure and protected. I ordered it on a Wed afternoon and received it Sat morning.

Is the abdominal binder available on this site thin enough to wear under normal clothes? I have one from a pregnancy store but it's too thick to wear under work clothes. Now that I'm back at work I really would like to be wearing one but I need one that doesn't make me look even bigger than I am!

Thanks ladies! I went ahead and ordered the abdominal binder. I don't know about thickness I hope it fits under my clothes that's why I want it!! Tried my jeans this am they fit but to much tenderness yet! I wore pantyhose today and felt great like my old self! Normal again! I figure if the binder works I get my life back !!

I have worn my ab binder under my clothing without feeling like it is too bulky, but everyone is different. I love the thing - it gives SO much support!

the elastic is nice and wide - no cutting in. the "front" can seem a little bit on the bulky side, but not horribly so - it is nice soft cotton and does overlap with velcro to hold it in place - the "inner" side goes completely across the abdomen so there are no "seams" to irritate tender skin, with the velcro side going as far across as you need to be comfortable.

looking at mine laying flat on a table, folded & fastened like it would be while wearing it - all 3 thicknesses - elastic, front flap & overlap at the velcro - is maybe 1/4" thick.

hope that helps
