If you are looking for shape wear to help get your body back in shape postpartum, then this review will be extremely helpful for you…
In many cultures, wearing a girdle or body shape wear after giving birth is a tradition said to help a woman’s uterus shrink back and to avoid getting a postpartum pooch. Recently, many celebrities like Jessica Alba and Kourtney Kardashian have shared how postpartum shape wear helped them get their flat tummies back. This has definitely had an effect on women wrapping up their bellies after giving birth in hopes of achieving the same. But with so many products out there promising the same, it’s hard to find the right one for you.
I was lucky enough to have a rep for Leonisa.com contact me to see if I was interested in reviewing one of their many products. Leonisa is a Colombian brand which sells sexy lingerie, cute swimwear, and body shape wear. Being pregnant at that moment, I of course jumped at the opportunity to review their postpartum shape wear.
I chose to try and review their Celebrity #1 Contour ShaperÂ Â It already had great reviews and was categorized specifically for postpartum/ surgery use. I found their size chart super helpful, since it gave you two options for compression level. Whether you want smooth control to contour your body comfortably, or firm control to define your body and help reduce inches. I chose firm control and went up a size from my pre-pregnancy measurements.

My experience with the celebrity contour shaper was a very positive one. I started wearing it a couple days after giving birth, and will continue to do so for a couple months. The first day I wore it, i was a little concerned I would feel hot, sweaty and uncomfortable in it all day; specially because it was a pretty warm day already, but I was surprised to find out it didn’t do any of that. It comes with instructions to wear for two hours the first day to get your body used to the bound feeling, the following day it can be worn all day. It is hand wash only and line dry in a cool place. This shaper is designed to help reduce your tummy and waist, while shaping your back and rear. And most importantly, no visible bulges when you wear your clothes over it!
It was very tight the first day, but I could still breathe fine and was not fainting like Elizabeth in Pirates of the Caribbean! The following day, it still compressed but not as much as the first day. After about a week and a half of wearing my shaper, I decided to check my measurements since I could definitely see a visible change. I was pleased to find out I had already lost two inches from my waist and two inches from my belly.
I am writing this review upon entering my fourth week postpartum, and as I previously mentioned I plan on wearing the shaper for a couple months. I have pretty much shed all the weight I gained during my pregnancy thanks to breastfeeding, and can see my belly has gone down to a small soft pooch thanks to my Leonisa shaper. I am sure once I start working out, I will be able to get my belly toned up again. At this point I am considering purchasing another shaper in a smaller size since I don’t feel the same firm amount of compression as when I started, I still feel a smoother hold but I prefer the firm compression to help reduce inches.
If you are a mommy-to-be and are looking for body shape wear to help shrink your belly, I highly recommend the Celebrity #1 contour shaper, or you can also check out Leonisa’s large selection of postpartum shape wear here-> Leonisa.comÂ Â There is a huge selection ranging in price, so you can find one that fits your budget.
