I think other reviewers (assuming normal delivery), are right. This is probably not great for general postpartum support. It is not binding or "supertight", as some complain. But on the flip side, it was great for me and my c-section. The fabric is soft and stretchy. It provides enough support to hold in those slack stomach muscles in the days after surgery, enough to allow you to get out of bed easily! And that is a feat after a c-section.The support is gentle enough to not irritate your incision line, and firm enough to make those long but necessary hospital hallway walks bearable or even possible. I am normally a size 6-8 and the small/medium was a little tight on me after delivery due to swelling. Now it fits great and still provides the support I need while my stomach heals.All in all, I gave it four stars, because it does occasionally curl up on the bottom due to the softness of the fabric, but I have round hips so I think that's my figure's fault. But that is not a big deal considering that it's allowed me to be functional and moving from the day after surgery on (walking really helps you heal faster!)I couldn't have survived without this! Best money I ever spent. I think Medela should market this item more as a c-section recovery aid than as a postpartum binder.

I bought this for support after my c-section and it didn't do the trick. I bought it (in-store) in L/XL size and though I had to stretch it to put it around me, it still somehow seemed loose. It has a big velcro section that doesn't flex with you and makes a "crinkly" sound when you try to bend it. The velcro is bulky and you can see where the closure is under your clothes. I gave it two stars because it did seem to help a bit with support at first but it always rode up eventually, pushing the top of the band and the stiff velcro closure right under my breasts. This means that the band is no longer giving the support in the area I need it most which is down lower.If you don't get the velcro lined up just right it will either have a big bulky wrinkle where you've bunched up the closure or you'll get the scratchy side of the velcro catching on stuff.During my pregnancy my doctor told me I had to get a support band because I was carrying very low and I bought the Mini Cradle elastic support that closes with bra-hook type closure. It was much less noticable under my clothes, still adjustable, and had tighter elastic giving it better support. I tried wearing the Mini Cradle after my surgery and it was the right type of support but the band wasn't wide enough, which is why I bought the Medela. I would NOT recommend this product. I would have returned it but I threw away the packaging so I couldn't. I say go to the store, take one out of the package and try it on if you still consider buying this, then make the decision.

Excellent lower abdominal support!

About Me Grandparent
Comments about Medela Postpartum Support in Nude: S-M:
My daughter just had a baby and was concerned about the extra skin on her abdomen. She did not gain much weight, but her belly STRETCHED! This helps her to be able to hold in her abdomen until she will be able to exercise. It also gives her back much needed support! She delivered naturally, so her recovery should be helped with this extra support! Thanks so much for having this on hand!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Parent of Two or More Children
I bought this after my doctor recommended I use one for post csection pains I was having. I had never used one with any of my other csection recoveries, but I wish I had. The sizing was right on. It took me a couple tries to figure out the best way to put it on but I quickly got the hang of it. I'm 3 weeks postpartum and I almost have no more front pooch.

Made last Postpartum Support

My daughter is using this piece due to having a c-section I looked all over Stockton and you were the only one who had the item thank you so much for saving the day she really needed this item
I would buy this product again
from Plainfield, IL
I looked like I was still pregnant after having my son. I was very uncomfortable. The Medela Postpartum is giving the support I need while my stomach goes down.
Meh, didn't care for it
from Salisbury. Md
When I used this product, I think I needed a bigger size but it was just uncomfortable. I preferred my other postpartum thing that fits like super high waisted granny panties but has a bra like strap at the crotch. This wrap made me buldge at the top when I sat down and dug into my ribs. (I'm 5ft and 125lbs when I bought a small/medium)
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Haverhill, MA
Use the product every day.
Awesome pp belt
This is just awesome ! Love the support it gives after the delivery! I had a csec and started using it immediately and this works great for the whole body support and posture! I absolutely love it and would recommend it to anybody looking for. Great pp belt
