My Name is Mariko DiBiase and I’m a mother to two little boys and the Product Specialist for Design Veronique. During pregnancy and childbirth, a woman’s body faces extraordinary challenges. My blog is a place where women can talk mother-to-mother about postpartum body care. As a mother who’s had two c-sections, I have plenty of opinions and personal advice. I hope you enjoy my blog and find ideas to help you on your journey to regain your pre-pregnancy body.

Hey guys! I’m 21 and thankfully I don’t have gynecomastia (thought I did at one point but was ruled out) fortunately/unfortunately when I’d gained weight I’d gained a lot in my chest however its hereditary – when my dad started getting a gut the manboobs also started, as with me. I still lift weights however lacked cardio/strict nutrition and hated my body was just too lazy to do anything about it. Would always wear button up shirts with a tight singlet to try hold my gut/manboobs in the thought of trying a compression vest and went with the Design Veronique Vest.
This postpartum girdle is constructed of three layers. The outer layer is for overall support and instantly slims and shapes the body, including stomach, waist, hips and back. The abdominal area of the garment features a targeted PowerNet Panel System that promotes the return of the abdominal muscle wall to its pre pregnancy position and provides posture support for proper spinal realignment. Also available in a brief.
This is a beautiful postpartum support that makes you look good and feel good!
My favorite bra is the Everyday Bra with Seamless Comfort Cups. It incorporates the wide comfortable band around the midsection along with front and back clasp closures. It makes it extremely easy to put on, especially when you are so large that you cannot twist and turn very easily. It also has four clasps to allow for an ever growing upper belly area. A very comfortable and secure day or night bra.
The Active Bra with Seamless Comfort Cups is also a great sleep bra. What I love the most is the extra wide banding and the full coverage, so that you don’t fall out when you’re sleeping on your side.
The Wireless Contouring Support Bra with Self-Adjusting Cups is very comfortable! The extra wide banding around the mid-section is fabulous. I looked everywhere for a bra that wouldn’t cut into me while pregnant and this is the one. Ahhh, relief at last! The cup sizes are one size fit all so it expands with you as you grow. No need to buy additional bras as your cup sizes change during pregnancy. There are four sets of clasps to allow maximum expansion with your back too.
Give Design Veronique Maternity Bras a try. Your bust and back will thank you!
This garment is one of my all-time favorites ever created by Design Veronique. This is NOT your grandmother’s girdle! It is most importantly helpful to the new mother dealing with considerable changes to her body. It’s super cute and comfortable, slims down your waist and smoothes the irritating bra bulge. And the bra is cotton. Need I say more? All moms know when you’ve recently had a baby you want nothing but soft and comfy fabric next to your chest. Please check out the features and benefits of this garment. Ladies (or dad), if you have any questions, ask away!
