Our abdominal support band is wonderfully soft and gentle on the skin and is designed to reduce pressure and tension in the abdominal and pelvic regions. Perfect after abdominal surgery as it helps to reduce any strain felt by the lower abdominal muscles whilst they are recovering. Comfort, support and confidence are the primary objectives for the tummy support band, which is uniquely designed for discreet and comfortable support of your back and tummy.
It comes in either black or white and a range of sizes, so there should be one to suit everyone. They are made from 91% Polyamide and 9% Elastan and are washable at 40 degrees.
Tummy Support Bands come in the following sizes in Black or White:
They are shaped to take account of a swollen tummy, so our recommendation is to get your normal panty size.
Please note: For hygiene reasons we are unable to exchange or refund this product, so please make sure you order the correct size, you can do this by using a tape measure around the hips.

From the first hour of wearing this I haven't had to take any pain relief whatsoever. The fabric is so soft and comfortable, you can hardly feel that you are wearing it, which is great! I am 22days post-op and because of this support belt I have been able to move around much more. I highly recommend that everyone undergoing a hysterectomy should purchase one of these support belts as they greatly improve your recovery.

I bought one of these support bands and loved the relief it provided so much that I bought a second one,so that I could wear one whilst the other one was being washed!I would recommend this product to EVERY woman who has had a hysterectomy - the relief it provides is amazing. It supports the tummy so well, I would not be without mine.10/10

As this is really designed for maternity use the fit is not quite right but nevertheless I have found it to be extremely useful. Within the first few weeks of abdominal surgery whilst I didn't want to wear it for long periods of time, because it was too uncomfortable, it was great for wearing out for a short walk. It feels like an extra pair of hands supporting your stomach area and allows you to walk in a more upright position and generally feel less like everything is sagging. Now my muscles are stronger, 7 weeks post surgery, I wear it less but would definitely recommend it to others who want to feel supported and more confident on early trips out which are so important in enhancing recovery. As others have commented it does ride up and is best not worn for long periods of time as it can be quite uncomfortable when you are still very tender!

hi, havent worn it a lot so far as my tummy is still pretty tender but i think it'll be helpful for when i start getting dressed more and being more mobile. the only down side is that when wearing it with my giant knickers (lol) it gets a bit sweaty.

Unfortunately I didn't find this product useful because the bottom of the garment cuts into the area where my bikini line incision is. I can pull it down but it rides back up when sitting and is very uncomfortable. Other makes of more general abdominal supports are much more useful.

Have just received my stomach support belt. Not sure best how to wear it as stitches still tender. But my walking is painless and more natural. Have ordered the pants as well. A godsend thank you

I am a 14 so ordered 14-16 in the band and also the support panties. Both are far too big. I am only 5' so the support pants seem to reach my neck and the tummy band rolls at both ends! Have to fold them. Expensive for me as not a good buy and hardly used either product. Sizing should be looked at as I am sure the product would be good.

I bought a couple of items from the online shop – the tummy band and the support panties – they’re lovely and soft so they don’t irritate the scar area. The tummy band makes an amazing difference, it reduces that feeling of downwards pressure and allows you to walk more naturally – I find it removes the impulse to clutch at my tummy with my hands and reduces the feeling of soreness and pulling on the stitches when I move. I don’t wear it “unfurled” as the website shows it, but double it over so that it’s giving snug pressure around the lower tummy.
My order reached me in two working days. I did go looking for a similar product in the high street chemists and couldn’t find anything like this!

hi i bought a 14-16 as am a 14 but ended up getting a 10-12 in the end.
I had a vertical incision and was unable to put it on myself for at least 4 weeks, but ptnr helped daily. The other problem I found was that it rolled up, hubby bought me some Sloggi control pants - maxi and I now put the band on and the pants over the top. I am 6 weeks post op and am trying to only wear it when I am going out as I dont want to weaken my muscles.
But its a fab idea and would defo recommend.
