UpSpring Panties for Pre and Post Natal Care - Review

Charcoal Fusion Belly Slimming High Waist Panty

It's been several years (18 to be exact) since I've given birth.  The first was a natural birth and the two after were via C-section.  I've got the telltale scar across the bottom of my abdomen, and the muscle surrounding it is long dead.  Although it's been some time ago since I had a c-section, I recall all too well the pain and problems that came with it.  

I received a pair of C-Panty Classic Waist underwear from UpSpring.  I can't vouch for how well they work for women who are recently recovering from a cesarean but I think they could be beneficial. 

C-Panty Classic Waist

C-Panty is the only patented postpartum undergarment that provides everything you need for C-section recovery. Made just for C-section moms, C-Panty provides a clinically determined safe level of compression to help your body recover faster.* It also helps you stay comfortable as you recover, whether you’re going back to work, chasing after kids, or just enjoying your new baby. 

C-Panty has a medical-grade silicone panel that minimizes scarring, helps reduce itchiness, and helps minimize the possible chance of infection around the delicate incision area.* The silicone is durable,  washable, and integrated into the panty, eliminating the need for scar gel or scar gel pads. C-Panty also helps to reduce swelling, supports weakened muscles, and banishes that incision bulge.*

I definitely could have used the C-Panty when I had my two sons.  It seemed that most everything I wore rubbed against my incision and make it more irritated.  I remember wearing these horrible white mesh-type undergarments.  They were uncomfortable and didn't want to stay put.  If you know you are going to have a c-section or recently had one, this undergarment may be just the thing to help you look and feel a little more human.

The Charcoal Fusion Belly Slimming High Waist Panty can be used by any woman, any stage of life.  UpSpring’s Charcoal Fusion High Waist Panty combines cutting edge bamboo charcoal fiber technology with moderate medical-grade compression to help you lose inches and slim your figure.*

The panty is made with bamboo charcoal fiber, one of the latest breakthroughs in natural health and wellness. Bamboo charcoal contains unique therapeutic properties that help to increase blood flow, which can then increase circulation and metabolism to help you lose inches faster after baby.*

Bamboo charcoal is produced by burning bamboo at 1500° F. The resulting charcoal is then ground into fine nano-particles, fused with polyester, and spun into fiber. Bamboo charcoal naturally emits far infrared light. When infrared light interacts with the heat of your body, it helps to increase blood flow, speed healing, and reduce swelling. This therapeutic effect is above and beyond the beneficial effects of compression alone.

I'd never heard of Bamboo charcoal before owning these panties.  I think it's an interesting concept and have been willing to work with it.  Of course, as common sense should tell you, proper diet and exercise are the most effective ways to lose weight.  But, the Charcoal Fusion High Waist Panty is something I like and will continue to wear.  Body heat reacts with the bamboo charcoal to stimulate greater blood flow.  So, once in a while, I can feel heat emitting where I am wearing the panty.  If anything, it keeps my muffin top from bulging and gives my stomach a more slimmed look.
