Shrinkx Hips

I’ve been complaining that I have been in a major blogging slump lately, but all this time I’ve had my Shrinkx Hips review to blog about!   I’m only about 12 weeks late on posting this, but better late than never, right?

Back in April, I asked for your advice about the Shrinkx Hips product.  At the time I was really worried about how wide my hips were getting while I was pregnant.   They really spread!  I mean, my arms could not even hang down straight at my sides; they went slightly out because of my hips!  In the back of my mind I was pretty sure that they would basically return back to their normal size, but I wasn’t 100 percent sure.  Just to be safe, I was seriously considering forking over the 60 bucks for Shrinkx Hips.  INSTEAD… Shrinkx Hips contacted little old me and sent me my very own Shrinkx Hips Ultra!  How nice is that?!?

The day after Taylor was born, I tried on the Shrinkx Hips band on.  I wanted to start the shrinkin’ right away! I didn’t wear the band religiously, but I wore it about 1 hour a day for the first 5 weeks.  It was very comfortable to wear around the house.  I tried wearing it once under jeans, but my jeans were already very tight, so it didn’t help having that on as well.  While on maternity leave, I mostly lived in sweats and groucho pants, so the band worked well with those types of clothes.

One negative to the band, is that while it provides support and compression around your hips, it doesn’t compress your stomach at all, so it can make your postpartum belly look and feel bigger.  It would be great if it could have a girdle that would also compress your stomach too. 



All in all, I am very happy with Shrinkx Hips.  I never did take my hip measurements while I was pregnant, so I don’t know how bad they actually got, but I am happy to report that my hips are back to my pre-pregnancy size!  I can’t say for sure that it is all thanks to wearing Shrinkx Hips; I may just be lucky too, or maybe it’s a combination of the two! :) 

I have a bunch of pregnant friends now, so I’ll be passing the Shrinkx Hips band on to someone else to try out.  I’ll ask them to do a review too to see what their take is on it.  Have any of you tired this?  Did it work for you?

Thanks again Shrinkx Hips!  I am SO glad to have my pre-pregnancy hips back! :)



  1. Seriously, nobody should be that skinny 3 months after having a baby;) You look fabulous! Do those things come in full body size!!???? I hope I get to see Taylor again before she turns one. I cannot believe how quickly the time is going by.

  2. You're such a skinny minny! I'm sure you'd be just as tiny as you are now even without the shrinking contraption...
