Body After Baby: Supportwear Review, Giveaway and Discount Code!

Ben is almost a month old already. How did that happen?  It seems like he's only been here a week or so. We are both doing great. I guess when I think about it, I feel much better a month after his birth, than I felt a week after his birth! I remember a few days after being home with him thinking how long will I be this sore? 

In comes the Angelica from Body After Baby:

Body After Baby sent me their Angelica postpartum support garment to review. I'm so glad they did! I've been wearing the Angelica about 5-6 days a week, for about 6-8 hours a day. To be honest, sometimes I don't have time to take a shower and get dressed put on fresh sweats until 2 or 3 in the afternoon. That's when I put on the support wear, and usually wear it until bedtime. 
Speeds Recovery
  • Stabilizes weak and stretched muscles from pregnancy and childbirth
  • Targeted compression promotes circulation and reduces swelling, both of which speed recovery
  • Supports tummy, hips, and lower back
  • ObGyn recommended anatomical design focused on recovery
  • Anatomical crotch panel supports and protects perineal tears and episiotomy incisions
  • Reduces bloating discomfort
Comfort Focused
  • Unique MicroNet™ soft-touch fabric free of harsh chemicals and dyes
  • Lightweight and breathable MicroNet™ fabric keeps moms cool while recovering
  • Undetectable and discreet under all types of clothing
  • Adjustable and detachable shoulder straps

I'm happy I've had the chance to use the Angelica. I do think it helped me with recovery. Especially in the early days when having cramps from my uterous contracting, and general soreness. My hips and lower back have been pretty sore some days. I think it's a combination of general after birth recovery, and sitting in a chair most of the day while nursing and holding Ben. 

As far as comfort while wearing the Angelica it was what I expected. It is snug like other shape wear I've worn under bridesmaid dresses etc. It's super snug putting it on and it does suck you in the entire time. But at the same time, it's breathable. I took the shoulder straps off and it stayed on easy enough. it was just easier to nurse and more comfortable for me without the extra straps. 


I will recommend to my girlfriends and anyone who is is looking for postpartum advice to have support, and Body After Baby would be my first choice!

The Sienna – For Post C-section Recovery 
The Sienna by Body After Baby is for C-section moms that want to recover faster and more comfortably so they can regain the strength they need to actively focus on their new baby.

Is it time to get back into your skinny jeans? You’ve been through the initial postpartum recovery stage and now it’s time to reclaim your body. The Leilani by Body After Baby is for postpartum active moms – whether active at the gym or at work or anywhere in between – that have healed from the delivery of their baby, lost the majority of the pregnancy weight and are now focused on losing serious inches. Unlike bulky post-pregnancy bands, the Leilani can be worn under fitted clothing and also supports all the body parts impacted by pregnancy including the hips, buttocks and thighs. Plus the slimming, “no back fat” design helps you look your best even in the most form-fitting of clothes.


Expecting and the Post Pregnancy collections seems far away? How about a discount on the Maternity support band?!
