This product is great! The only thing I've found is that I needed a smaller size to normal! I believe this is because it's meant for pregnant women whose tummies swell much more than mine!
They give great support & are very comfortable, & are very good quality!
I have now got 5 pairs!

I have very recently had a TAH, with a large cut running from just above the navel all the way down. I ordered a pair of support pants and a support band pre operation. They have both exceeded my expectation, i waited till i had got home before i tried the pants, & they were the most comfortable and supportive item i could have ever wished for... feeling so soft and secure, where obviously i was still extremely tender. 2 weeks on & i have immediatley ordered more pants and a different colour option for the band. I am a good size 12, but the M 10/12 is perfect (i had worried about anything feeling too tight). So do not hesitate ladies, i cannot recommend more highly, and just so glad i found this wonderful website!! Also very quick delivery.

The support panty gives light support and is pleasantly comforting to wear covering a large area of tummy! I had keyhole surgery and I wanted something that would cover the tummy button - which it does easily! I was very bloated for a couple of weeks after surgery and these pants are perfect to wear during this time. The only negative comment I would make is that although I ordered size 10-12 the pants were bigger than I expected. They came labelled as a medium. Had I known in advance this size was considered medium I would have ordered small.

Bought these a couple of days after returning home after total abdo hysterectomy they arrived within a couple of days and what a relief. They are lovely and soft and gave immediate support to the tummy area and also my back which had been aching a lot, best thing i ever bought and immediately got a second pair so i had them for every day. Just over 3 weeks after op now not wearing them every day as trying to strengthen stomach muscles so dont want them to depend on them too much, but def worth every penny :)

I recently bought the light support pants being 2 weeks post op as I thought they sounded great. I bought the size medium being a usual size 16 in pants. I found the tummy support section really good for when I was walking about. However they did rub/put pressure on my scar (even 4 weeks on)and I could only wear them for a short time. I also found they came almost up to my bust which was a bit too high. As far as support goes though - Very Good.

After reading previous reviews I ordered a size 14-16 although I'm normally a size 18. It's wonderfully soft and comfortable with just the right amount of support across the tummy and back. I only ordered one to see what it was like, but am about to order more.

The panty's are comfy and I would have given them 5 stars but if they had just a bit more support under the tummy - possibly more of the ribbing, further up towards the navel- about two to three inches or so it would help. (I normally have a completely flat stomach and it is there where the support is needed) the ribbing comes where my scar is and is helpful but doesn't do as much as it could.
I sat here yesterday, sewing in an extra layer of stretch fabric in the area mentioned and it works a treat!
The only other thing is that the sizing for me is perfect - i had the 18/20 (I wear size 18 briefs, size 20 jeans) but the length is too long, the waistband reaches my bust!!

Just had hysterectomy 3 days ago and these are brilliant - really supportive and gentle. Have logged on and bought more on my return home. The hospital nurse was very impressed too! Really recommend them.

I can at last walk properly instead of creeping round holding my tummy! Very comfortable to wear. Can thoroughly recommend.
