Belly Bandit?

I will be having my second c-section in a couple of weeks and im thinking of ordering a Belly Bandit. However it says you need to be sure you wear it completly covering the incision. My incision scar from my previous c-section is very low, and it makes me wonder if it will be possible to comfortably wear the belly band it so low. So I was wondering if anyone else has any experiance using one? I would love the advice before I spend so much money on one.

I'm sorry that I can't be of any help! I've never had a belly bandit... hopefully someone with some experience will pop up with some advice here soon! Good luck on your upcoming C section!

I have my 2nd c/s scheduled for 2/2, and I ordered the belly bandit for recovery with this one... I felt like I could have used some extra support with the first one, so I'm hoping this will help with this one... and helping to suck in the tummy can't hurt either! I ordered the bamboo one (the one they recommend for c/s)... I"m not sure how comfy it will be to sit in.. but I"m hoping after wearing it, it will be more "bendable" and be more comfy.... I think that if I can fit it down over the top of my hips, that it will cover my scar and do what its supposed to...

So overall, I'm not sure I answered your question, but I figured it was worth a try... I'll let you know how it goes, but not for a month...
