Although this item is for OB usage, it is good for abdominoplasty care for recovery!
I was about 8 months post-surgery (circumferential belt lipectomy) and was still having some swelling in the lower tummy tuck area. My doctor recommended re-starting compression, along with daily sit-up exercises. He said I just needed some type of tummy shaper, not the full compression garment previously used. Having had a good experience with Marena garments for recovery (initially size L, then M), I knew they were well made and comfortable. So, I came to Marena's website to see what I could find, looking for something without zippers and hook-eye fasteners, that I could just pull-on and off. I looked at the shapewear, and initially considered a lower waisted option, but decided against it, since it didn't have an open crotch. I eventually decided on the "Post Pregnancy Shaper" since it would target compression to the tummy area and it had an open crotch -- an important feature since I live in a hot and humid area. I was a bit concerned about sizing since my earlier Marena garments were Large and Medium size, but I compared my current measurements to the size chart for this garment and ordered an XL, and ended up with a great fit. My only feedback would be that this garment is definitely high waisted, and it does tend to bunch up under the bra line. But overall an excellent choice.

Feel good with wearing the item every day the top ban begin to roll up within a couple of days of wearing all day, would be nice if it just layed perfect to the body every time without unfolding the ban.
