First we looked at the bulkiness: The average abdominal binder or belly-band is 9 to 12 inches wide and made of bulky and stiff elastic, providing the same level of support all the way around your mid-section. This actually restricts your movements and tends to “ride up, not to mention it’s very noticeable under most clothing.
The design of the Sienna it to be both supportive and comfortable, so we designed our C-section recovery garment in a lightweight and breathable MicroNet fabric which is moderately compressive and a soft-touch finish. In addition, we added a side zipper to make it easy to get in and out of, especially when you are limited in strength and movement after your c-section.
We replaced the idea of limited stiff elastic with seamless support panels that target the your lower abdomen, incision site, and provides lower back support for great relief.
To prevent skin irritation and wound healing interference, we designed the Sienna with no direct seams over or near your c-section incision area. An added bonus to this design is the ability to start wearing within the first week postpartum.
