    Hi there,
    Just wondering what size you suggest I order. I would be a med. based on my pre pregnancy size, but with my other 2 pregnancies I gained 40+ lbs and I’m not sure a med would fit right after. I’m hoping to get a cheaper binder for the first couple weeks or so and then go to the squeem. I am 5′ 9″, 136 lbs and 31 inch waist between babies. Should I get the medium or the large? (I’m not a very “hippy” build if that makes a difference.)
    Thanks a lot!

    Based on your pre-preggo stats, I would be VERY wary of you buying a large. For your height you are quite slim, and though I know you won’t be at a 31 in. waist straight away, I think your idea is a good one. I know you will end up in the medium size for the majority of the duration, and I’d hate to see you buy the large just for possibly a weeks’ time, and maybe you won’t need a large at all, but maybe a cheap one to work for you IF need be, prior to fitting into the medium (should that happen, it may not) is your best bet IN MY opinion. I mean some people buy two to cover themselves, but based on what you wrote, I wouldn’t want you to spend the money for such a short amount of time, and it may work. I had to lie down to get my small on to start with but was 150% comfortable upon standing, bending, picking up babies, sleeping, etc. Mo problems with comfort. The lying down made my spare tire go in, lol, but as I started shrinking, obviously this practice was no longer needed, but I know going to a medium would have not been a smart investment for me, and despite losing inches, I still fit in my small nice and snug to this day. The Squeem has an amazing intelligent fabric that molds like liquid skin to your curves and will shrink down with you. The medium will be your size, though I do understand what you are saying, you wouldn’t get much use from the large in my personal opinion, and I like your plan of action better. You will lose weight and inches in the postpartum period after your baby because that is a natural thing.I just see you getting a large and then needing the medium too soon. A cheapo wrap for at home at 1st may be your best bet, and you don’t HAVE to bind straight away. I wanted to to cover up what I was seeing and feel like I was doing something asap, but it wasn’t a necessity. You will benefit the same regardless, but if you can get a cheapie, which you may or may not need, at least you won’t be kicking yourself for buying the large and spending the extra cash :) . I am honest. I care more about helping then selling :) . So for me, I’d go medium and maybe it will work out to start with :) . (If not it would be soon, but I would certainly try it.)

    I hope this helps. Have a fab day!!!!!!!!!

    Hi Shelly,

    I am currently 37 weeks preggo with my first baby (singleton). My pre-preg weight was 125lbs and I currently weigh 163 (keep in mind I still have a few weeks to go still). Right now my hip size is 40″ and I can’t exactly remember my pre preggo waist size but I want to say it was close to 30″-size 4-6 jeans. So my binder size should be?? Thanks in advance!
