I want to love these, I really do. I have both bloomers and a belly band in small and I love both, they fit great and had no problems. The small legging I ordered is MUCH smaller than the other items in this line. I get it they are supposed to be tight, and they are, and I am withing a couple pounds of my pre-pregnancy weight so that shouldn't be an issue. ( I was a 2-4 before) I am 5'3" with a short torso and they constantly roll down. For a pair of leggings over $100 I expected a bit more, like pockets for starters.
I packed these for the hospital and only regret is that I waited almost a whole day to put them on. I felt stronger immediately after putting them on. Love them so much that I have two pairs and wore them basically exclusively for 6 weeks PP. I gift them to all my pregnant friends!
My last pregnancy I ordered a small size (my usual size) and they felt super snug so I would most definitely size up one to a medium this time around. I only got to wear them a few times, but I know that I would have gotten more use out of them if I would have had the time to exchange them, but being a new mom all over again I kept forgetting. This time around I will have a medium tucked away in my hospital bag for the ESSENTIALS. This brand is truly amazing and I love all of the products I have used. Not a single complaint from this mama. Now going on mom of 4!!!!
I’m currently suffering from insomnia, so I decided to review this product since I’m currently wearing it.
I gave birth April 2018 to a 8lb 7oz boy,naturally, and recovery was HELL! (I had tearing)
August 2019 I gave birth to a 7lb 4oz girl Also naturally. BUT recovery WAS NOT HELL and I have these leggings to thank.
It’s not even recommended for woman to give birth less than 18months apart because the body needs time to heal! These leggings made and continue to make the healing process amazing!!
I wore it the first day after giving birth and by day two I was up and walking around!!!
Not only have these comfortable but they are soft and they truly truly help with the recovery process.
INVEST IN THIS LADIES !
I cannot recommend these leggings highly enough. The recovery from my C-section surgery would’ve been so much longer and more painful without these leggings. They helped me improve my posture, kept everything in during those early days when every laugh, cough, or sneeze really hurt, and helped my abs come back together after having a baby that was over 10 pounds. I wear them several times a week and feel that they are worth every penny that I spent on them.
So...let me start by admitting that I'm not one to splurge on myself, so I was a little hesitant spending this kind of money on some leggings. I'm cheap, I get it. :) I did, however, take the words of advice from a few other mom-friends who had purchased these and swore by them. I used a new member discount code and saw on Instagram that they were going to offer these in a new darker teal color (Lagoon). Once the new color was released, I got a black pair (goes with anything!) and the Lagoon (truly, beautiful!). I originally ordered a size medium, which is what I typically wear. I'm 5'6" and weigh around 180 at 7 mo. pregnant. Once they came in, I stupidly tried them on...let me tell ya, they're not for a baby belly! Lol. I decided, even with the birth of a child, I probably needed to size up. I'm glad I did, too, because I just got the larges in and they will fit great (snug, but not like a freakin' sausage) once my kiddo arrives. They're a nice, smooth legging and high quality material. I will say that the seam around the pelvic and butt area (kind of their "waistband" area) do sit a bit low, like pregnancy underwear. I'm guessing I'll be grateful for that, should I need a C-section. If you're kind of on the frugal side, like me, get the discount code and don't look back. You'll like these...and they're worth it!
These are my absolute favorite leggings! I have diastasis recti and an umbilical hernia from pregnancy, and these are the only leggings that make me feel supported, slim, and “normal” again, and don’t cause pain. The material is very high quality and makes me look good all around! Well worth the price - the only thing I wear! And if you are breastfeeding, they are perfect for hiding your tummy if you have to pull your shirt up!
I wore these crops for a few days immediately postpartum before I had to size down to a small. I washed them once and somehow there is already a thread pull on the side, which is disappointing for how expensive these are. I do love the support, especially as I recover from a natural delivery and a third-degree tear.
Sculpt & Recovery Postpartum Crop Pants
First time mom and I had an unexpected C-section. These Sculpt & Recovery Postpartum Crop Pants were the perfect gear I needed to help everything feel like it was in place for recovery. Highly recommend!
I bought these 3 weeks postpartum and wish I had them from day 1. So comfortable and so supportive. I can tell a huge difference on days I have them on versus not. They have enough compression that they feel amazing at this point in recovery. I love them so much I ordered a second pair so I can wear them daily.
Same issue! They are so comfy but after a couple of wears there are holes in the fabric and the seams are coming out- delicate washed only! Bummer because I love the bralettes but these don't have these issues.
I bought these shorts 1 month ago for postpartum. They are incredibly soft and fit great. I was a medium before and during a pregnancy and while I am now mostly a large, I can definitely fit these comfortably. My problem with them is that there are already two holes in the fabric! I haven’t snagged them in anything and have washed them as instructed. Not sure if the problem is a bad batch or what, but very disappointed because I love these shorts.
I originally ordered a M - that’s what I wear in the recovery leggings. They were way too big, so I exchanged for a small. They fit better and are comfortable, but the waist piece just feels like a piece of fabric. It doesn’t feel like lightweight compression, which I wish it did because I have a pretty intense diastasis recti separation. I also am constantly tugging the legs down as they ride up. The positive is the coverage for nursing, but I’m disappointed in what I paid for what I got.
I’ve been living in these since delivery!! These are a must for belly birth momma’s. They help sooooo much with the pain and help me feel like there so much more support! Plus a great option for breastfeeding and not exposing too much. And go great with the bralette, which is amazing for nursing!!!
