The challenge of getting back in shape starts post delivery for mommies. Of course, the joy of holding on to your little one cannot be matched by anything else for most new moms. Getting back in shape post-pregnancy, however, is something that requires patience and perseverance. The good news is that there are products like the postnatal belly band that can help you get back in shape post delivery.

  • Frequent stomach cramps/ uterus contraction

We recommend you stay with your pre-pregnancy size when choosing maternity wear. The main changes will be in your bust.

* Not all sizes available in all styles 



To get your size, start at your belly button and go all the way around then match your measurement to the corresponding size.

For our recovery shaper tops, we suggest you choose one size smaller than your normal clothing size for a better fit.


Early stages of pregnancy: please use your pre-pregnancy body size.
Close to your due date : please select one size smaller than your current size.


During Pregnancy: Our under bust size will gradually increase as your baby grows, for up to one cup size.
Postnatal: Avoid buying maternity bras in the first two weeks, as your bust (cup size) will increase significantly to prepare for breastfeeding. It usually settles in the second week.
