Product Description & Benefits:
Cezara Belly Support Panty w/ 1 Adjustable Support Belt (Pregnancy, C-Section) offers revolutionary and welcome support during pregnancy, after delivery, after Cesarean delivery, through your recovery, or anytime gentle support is desired.
The adjustable stretch band lifts your belly, relieves pressure on tender tissue, minimizes chafing and provides back support.
The soft internal pad compresses and protects your lower abdomen and tender scar tissue.
Easy to wear and easy to adjust to your changing body, during pregnancy and after delivery.
Wear Cezara™ as your panty or over your panty – nothing but soft cotton/spandex and ultra-soft leg elastic touches you.
Cezara™ is sized the same as your regular panty, from small through 5X.
The Cezara™ belly support panty’s integrated pad provides you with compression and protection for your lower abdomen and Cesarean scar (if you have one). The integrated support band easily adjusts with Velcro® to lift your pregnant or post-partum belly to reduce tender tissue and scar tissue irritation. Cradling your belly helps prevent sweat from forming on the lower belly, minimizing irritation and chafing. The adjustable band also provides welcome lower back support.
Cezara™ provides you with wonderful lower abdominal, belly and back support so that you carry your pregnant or post-partum belly more comfortably, stand straighter, move with greater ease and look and feel terrific!
How Cezara Belly Support Panty Works:
During pregnancy: You can wear the Cezara™ belly support panty for desired lower abdominal, belly and back support as soon as you desire the comfort and support Cezara™ provides. If this is a new pregnancy following a prior Cesarean, the internal pad protects your scar. Cezara™ is so comfortable that many moms sleep in it.
After delivery: The Cezara™ belly support panty’s integrated soft internal pad cushions and compresses your lower abdomen, while the adjustable band tenderly lifts and supports your belly and your back until you look fabulous again.
After Cesarean delivery: The Cezara™ belly support panty’s integrated soft internal pad compresses and protects your tender Cesarean scar, allowing it to heal more quickly. The adjustable band tenderly supports you during recovery and lifts your belly away from your incision to promote optimal healing. Ask your medical professional how soon after delivery you can resume wearing Cezara™. Wear the panty for as long after delivery as you wish. Moms have reported that wearing their Cezara™ panty increased their comfort and protected their scars while nursing and also while holding and wearing their babies.
Cezara Belly Support Panty Testimonials:
"I was really skeptical that a belly support panty could work all the way through a pregnancy and yet shrink back down and still provide gentle support for over c-section scars (or any afterbirth tummy for that matter!). However, this ingenious design does just that!! Now you can have one support garment for both before and after no matter what kind of birth you have!"
—P.J. Jacobson, www.birthandbaby.com
"Dr. Tydings gave me the Cezara panties 4 hours after I had my son. Less than 12 hours after having my c-section I got up and (while standing straight up) walked down the hall and back with no problem. Before having the surgery I heard horror stories about c-sections and the pain I would be in and how walking was painful; with these panties, I had no problems. I am so very grateful. I wore them for 3 weeks post op! They felt so supportive and helped when my little wiggle worm would hit my incision. Only recommendation I have is that I wish I would have had 2 pair!!! I loved these panties and consider them a necessity for any new mom!!!!"
—Paige S., Albany, Louisiana
"As a mother of 4 and 30 years in the medical field, I wish this was available in my years of child bearing.
"When my granddaughter had her c-section, I was in awe when she stood straight up out of the bed like nothing had ever happened. When I asked her if she was hurting she said no. I never saw her hold her stomach or hunch over. She stood straight up and we even had to tell her to not be so active. The day after returning home she told me she did 3 loads of clothes with no problem at all!"
—Jean C., Albany, Louisiana
"I started wearing the Cezara™ at 3 weeks (post-Cesarean). The support pad in the Cezara™ was great. I immediately felt that the incision was more protected and not being rubbed on. I stopped wearing the maxi pads and wore the Cezara™ instead. I wore the Cezara™ over my own panties, so that I could wear Cezara™ more often and not wash Cezara™ all the time. I have not noticed a dramatic difference in the look of my scar, but have felt more comfortable with the scar since wearing the Cezara™. I had tried to wear a sling wrap with my baby, but it had been uncomfortable because the baby would hit my scar. With the Cezara™, I was able to wear the baby in a sling and not feel uncomfortable."
—Melissa C. who got her Cezara™ at Fashion After Passion
"I found this product very helpful after my C-section. It helped hold my stomach up and allowed me to sleep comfortably on my side. I've used it for nearly a month and would say it is worth the money you'll pay for it."
—Nicole R., Salt Lake City, Utah
Cezara Belly Support Frequently Asked Questions:
This is my first pregnancy – do I need Cezara™?
First, congratulations! Yes, you do need Cezara™ — it will lift your belly and tenderly support your back as your belly gets larger and heavier. You’ll stand straighter and be much more comfortable. And don’t forget to take your Cezara™ to the hospital to wear after you deliver your beautiful new baby! Just check with your medical professional so you know how soon after delivery you can resume wearing your Cezara™.
How many Cezara™ belly support panties will I need to buy?
That depends on whether Cezara™ is your favorite panty or if you wear Cezara™ OVER your favorite panties. If you’re wearing it over your favorite panties, then you’ll only need 1 or 2 Cezara™ panties. If you’re wearing it by itself as your favorite panty, then you’ll need about 3, so you’ve got a clean panty to wear while the others are in the laundry. We hope you’ll find Cezara™ so comfortable that your other favorite panties get a rest!
How many hours a day can I wear Cezara™?
This really depends on you. There’s no downside to wearing Cezara™ for as many hours a day (and night) as you want ― other than doing the laundry often enough to always have a clean Cezara™ available.
Will I need to buy more than one size of Cezara™?
No! One more beautiful thing about Cezara™: It’s sized just like your regular panties (sizes small through 5X). You can wear the same size throughout your pregnancy and after your baby’s birth, as you regain your pre-baby figure — no need to do calculations, pull out the tape measure, or “buy up.” Just order your Cezara™ belly support panty in the same size as the panty you are wearing when you order.
If you’re lucky enough to lose more than you gained during pregnancy and you’re below your pre-pregnancy weight, the Velcro® closure allows you to make the band smaller than the panty. You can use the elastic loop attached to the end of the band to hold the excess band in place — just flip the loop to the front of the band and insert the Velcro® hook end through it. Of course, if Cezara™ still seems big after adjusting, then, yes, move into a smaller size (and congratulations!).
What is that extra small loop of elastic on the end of the long support band?
That’s for all you gals lucky enough to lose your baby weight. When you are skinny enough to tighten the band a lot, first flip that little loop to the front of the band, then slip the Velcro® hook end of the support band through the small loop, then close the Velcro® as needed. This will keep the loose end tidy and you looking fabulous!
I’m packing my hospital bag ― should I take Cezara™ with me?
Absolutely! If you’re already wearing Cezara™ in the final weeks of your pregnancy, wear one to the hospital. Pack a clean one to wear after delivery (resume wearing Cezara™ when your medical professional gives you the OK). If you weren’t wearing Cezara™ during your pregnancy, pack it so you can start as soon after delivery as medically appropriate.
I just had my beautiful baby with minimal medical assistance ― is Cezara™ right for me?
Yes, it is! (And, congratulations on your little one!) As you hold and care for your little one, Cezara™ provides welcome support for your belly and back, helping you comfortably regain your strength. Remember, your muscles and tender tissues have been stretched during your pregnancy; Cezara™ provides tender support as they (and you) regain their pre-pregnancy shape. Can’t we all use a good cuddle? This one’s for mom!
I want to nurse my beautiful baby – will wearing Cezara™ help me?
Absolutely — what a wonderful start you are giving your child! Cezara™ will lift your belly and support your back for better posture and less strain when holding and nursing your beautiful baby. If you have a Cesarean scar, Cezara™ will also cushion and protect it when baby is squirming in your arms so you can be more relaxed and focused on your baby. How wonderful for both of you!
I have a toddler and a new baby ― how can Cezara™ help me?
If you’ve just had a Cesarean delivery and you’re also caring for a toddler, Cezara™ is really for you! With two (or more!) active little ones, you really need to take care of yourself … and Cezara™ is there to help you, by protecting your tender incision from kicking, pulling, nudging, wiggling, squirming — all those wonderful things kids do .
My friend used a sanitary napkin over her scar — what’s up with that?
Some doctors recommend wearing a sanitary napkin over the Cesarean incision to protect it during recovery and healing — awkward, uncomfortable, and now unnecessary! The soft internal pad in the Cezara™ belly support panty does it all — plus it doesn’t shift around during your busy day. The panty’s smooth fabric will not snag on any bandages.
The hospital gave my sister a binder after her delivery — what’s the story?
Binders are one-size-fits-all (or, maybe, no one). You won’t need a binder if you’re wearing the super-comfortable Cezara™. The wide, easily adjustable elastic band is integrated into the panty. Panty, binder, cushioning for your incision — all in one amazing, easily washed garment
How do I care for my Cezara™? Any special laundry instructions?
First, close the Velcro® band to protect Cezara™ and any clothing you’re washing at the same time. Put Cezara™ into a lingerie bag, then machine wash cold, gentle cycle or wash by hand, no bleach. Remember — as with all fine lingerie — to line dry. This will keep your Cezara™ in great shape.
