It’s What You Can’t See…

We could tell you many reason why our Thighs Disguise is the best kept "underdress" secret but we thought we'd let blogger, Kassy on Design do it for us! ---- Well guys, I have found the dress that my soul (aka. pregnant body) loves! Ever since I found out I was pregnant, I’ve dreamed of wearing an outfit like this one but finding a great form fitting dress that fit well was a bit of a challenge. I’m a shortie and maternity clothes are typically made longer than typical dresses, which is totally fine. I definitely don’t want to walk around...

Belly Wraps vs Waist Trainers - What You Need To Know!

We’ve all been hearing a lot about waist trainers in the news, so we thought it was a good time to pass along some advice about safe, effective postpartum belly wrapping.  We asked Dr. Cynthia Robbins. OB/GYN and women’s health expert to help clarify the difference!  "After the delivery of a baby, the body has had ligaments and cartilage softened by a hormone named relaxin. This hormone has been produced at the end of pregnancy to allow for structure shifting as the baby moves through the birth canal. I advise patients to wear a support wrap or belly wrap postpartum to...

Real Mom Wrapping!

The postpartum product which was a game-changer for me was the B.F.F. Belly Wrap. In regards to fit, I suggest ordering two sizes if possible. I ordered my normal pre-pregnancy size XS and couldn’t strap this around my waist until about a week postpartum (and still needed my husband’s help to do so!). If you order two sizes, you can get a head start right away with the larger of the two and move to the smaller size as your belly shrinks. I liked wearing my wrap around the house and when I went for walks because it helped provide support...
