Swimsuit season may be almost over. But for women who just had a baby, squeezing back into a sexy suit is a bit daunting at any time.
Fortunately, new moms are getting some much-deserved help with comfy tummy wraps, hip shrinkers and shapewear.
Worn around the midsection, they’re designed to guide your body back to its pre-baby form while keeping everything in.
Check out our top picks below.
After searching high and low for an effective (and comfy) post-pregnancy belly wrap during her last pregnancy, mom-of-four Brooke Burke decided to design her own.
The result: Taut ($56-$62) — an adjustable wrap that should be worn for the first 40 days and nights after delivering to help shrink the uterus and reduce water retention.
Not a new mom, but still want to get back into pre-baby shape? Try the Baboosh Body ($43), an exercise wrap which you can wear to trim your belly while you work out.

Every woman needs some support after baby is born. Immediately after delivering — and up until six weeks postpartum — the Couture Cinch ($79) from By Anew works as a gentle pressure wrap, holding the stretched muscles in place.
Added bonus: The company is offering our readers an exclusive discount — 15% off plus express shipping. Just enter code: CINCHIT at checkout.

The company’s Nursing Bra Tummy Control Tank ($49) helps minimize the all-dreaded “muffin top” and pulls together excess post-partum skin to help reduce stretch marks. It also encourages proper posture while supporting the lower back.
Even better? You can wear it while nursing.

A new baby, means wider hips. Ease them back into their pre-pregnancy place with the Shrinkx Hips ($55) compression belt. While taking advantage of the hormone Relaxin — which loosens pelvic joints and ligaments for childbirth and stays in your body eight weeks after birth — the belt can narrow your hips significantly.
Dennis Quaid actually gave them to an audience of expectant moms on the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Mother’s Day.
