I’m 5.5ft/164 cm and was 121lb/55 kg prior pregnancy. Ordered BBF in size S (small) after giving birth. At that time I was 45in/115 cm around my belly. I was conflicted b/c according to the sizing info I should have ordered size medium. The sizing difference between the sizes is huge. So my advice would be either wait a week for your belly to ‘collapse’, as it will very fast, or choose a smaller size if you are closer to the smaller band. No doubt, the maker wants you to invest onto two belts overall; I am already reaching near maximum squeeze on S size! The belt works great; almost 2 weeks into wearing it, the re-shaping results are truly impressive. The belt is comfortable, yet provides great lower back support. Overall, it is a very good investment.
I call this my body armour. I love it! Great support obviously to core but also to back and hips. A constant reminder for best posture. I have been wearing it 24h/d since receiving it. (It replaced a cheaper version from Babies R Us). I use in conjunction with Shrinkxhips. Great results in a month. Muffin top quickly melting. Much better workouts (I wear during exercise). After a month, I started taking it off during the day, as it adds bulk if you don't have it anymore in certain clothes.
Totally worth investment, IMO. This is my 4th (likely last) and I'm so happy I bought it. No regrets!!
It is shorter inwidththan the original so it is a little hard to figure out where to place it. After using the original in medium I moved on to this size. Fits a lot tighter however I would not recommend it's use if you have hemmroids post pregnancy because of the added pressure.
This product is terrible. I tried it out here and there after baby I found the sizing is all wrong. I measure myself properly and bought accordingly and I found the belt was not long enough and i'm only 5'6. Felt it was not long enough for my torso or the product is just terrible. I would recommend trying the original instead of wasting your money on something this expensive.
I first bought the bamboo bandit (large) and had huge results - lost tons of weight and decreased waist inches fast in under a month!!! Used the bamboo bandit for my third postpartum. I gained 60 lbs during this pregnancy and have 14 lbs left to reduce at 5 weeks postpartum.
I then bought the small BFF at 3 weeks postpartum. I like that I can customize the two bands although it does cover less of my belly - distance from boobs to crotch. It is less comfy than the bamboo but considerably better than my maternity belt during pregnancy. Reason for one star missing. These bandits are phenomenal for recovery after c-section. I recommend the bandit and will certainly continue wearing it for the full recommended time frame. Also there is so much more velcro for adjusting with the bff than the bamboo bandit however I am glad I first put the bamboo next to my skin after the c-section. It really is nice fabric.
