For those of you keeping track at home, that's exactly one month and 5 days after my Annabelle is due.
The bridesmaid dress is a formal gown with a full skirt and high waist, which I think will be very forgiving. However, of course, I will be pulling out all the stops to make myself as small as possible within the timeframe I have, which brings me to the topic of belly binding.
If you're curious as to what this is, it's basically a girdle, and the thought is that you wear it night and day for several weeks after delivery to speed the process of tucking your baby belly back in place. It's not a weight loss solution of course--just a little something to encourage your abs to return to their former spaces from being stretched. The best known brand in the US is called the Belly Bandit, and you can even find it at BRU or Buy Buy Baby. I do believe that the Kardashians are the ones who made it famous, so do with that what you will.
I would love to hear if you have any experience with this! I know it's common for C-section patients to come home with a belly binder to help support their mid-section post-surgery, and the little research I did said that in Eastern cultures, they've been doing this for years.
Anyway, I'm no expert. I've just been doing a little research on the web and would love to hear what you think about it. Torturous? Common sense? I find it a bit fascinating and am curious to know if it works!
