|HipSlimmer™ Post-pregnancy Compression Corset for Hips|
Get back into your jeans faster with HipSlimmer™!
HipSlimmer™ is a post-pregnancy compression corset designed to help you return to your pre-pregnancy size. Hormones released during pregnancy cause your hips to expand for childbirth. These hormones remain elevated after delivery leaving the joints of your hips malleable. HipSlimmer™, when worn after pregnancy, applies pressure directly to your hips and may help your hips return to their pre-pregnancy size. HipSlimmer™ is the only post-pregnancy "hip-slimming" compression corset available.
How the HipSlimmer™ Works:
Many women complain their hips are wider after pregnancy. Even once they return to their pre-pregnancy weight, they are still unable to fit into their jeans worn before pregnancy. This is no surprise since your body changes during pregnancy.
Changes During Pregnancy
Your pelvis is a unique system of bones and ligaments that shift and adapt as your baby grows. The pelvis is composed of four main bones. The symphysis pubis, a cartilage pad, holds together the two large hip bones in the front. The sacroiliac joints are found near the bottom of the back and form the joints between the sacrum and ilia of the pelvis. They make up the rear portion of the pelvic girdle.
During pregnancy, female hormones such as relaxin and progesterone are released. Relaxin, as its name applies, causes the body’s connective tissue and joints to relax and loosen. In particular, the symphisis pubis and the sacroiliac joints widen which allows your pelvis to accommodate the enlarging uterus and eventual passage of your baby. These hormones do not return to their pre-pregnancy levels until after delivery, leaving your hips malleable. Many women complain that this widening leaves a lasting effect on their hips.
Your ligaments and joints associated with your hips and pelvis are maximally relaxed in or around the time of pregnancy. By capitalizing on this normal change associated with child bearing, HipSlimmer™ is used after pregnancy to apply pressure directly to your hips and may aid in return to their pre-pregnancy size.

How to wear your corset:
The ideal time to wear the Hipslimmer™ is after you have recovered from your delivery and are not experiencing any pain. Do NOT wear the corset while pregnant.
Hipslimmer™ should be worn over comfortable clothing or undergarments for several hours a day during the first couple of months following delivery.
1. Position the corset low on the hips
2. Beginning at the 3rd eyelet from the bottom, lace the corset from the 3rd eyelet down to the bottom eyelet.
Tighten and tie the lace. Note, this lace should tie at the bottom of the belt.
3. Beginning at the third eyelet from the top (for the xs, s, and m, this will be the same eyelet used in step 2), lace the corset from the 3rd eyelet up to the top eyelet. Tighten and tie the lace. Note, this lace should tie at the top of the corset.
4. Return to the bottom lace and re-tighten and tie.
5. Likewise, re-tighten and tie the top lace.
6. Continue this process until the corset is tight yet comfortable on the hips.
*It is important that the corset is low on your hips so that it will not ride up when seated.
