What Kind of "Snapback" Do Postpartum Moms Need?

Why you should prioritize your comfort over societal body image pressure.

How would you feel if we told you that every day, over 5,000 women use Google to search for some variation of these words “get rid of my postpartum belly” or “hide my postpartum belly”? 

Sad, right?

As a company founded by a mom of two and run by a team of mostly new mothers, we were disappointed but not really that surprised. It’s sad we live in a world that makes mothers feel like they need to return to their pre-pregnancy body soon after the baby arrives.  But as moms, we also understand most struggle with their postpartum bodies.

At the end of the day, we can’t forget that these bodies of ours are amazing! They grew a whole freaking human being for 40ish weeks. If it took nine months to fully bake our buns in the oven, then we should be given the liberty to heal for another nine months or even longer.

📢 PSA: Most postpartum women do NOT “snapback” to their pre-pregnancy bodies immediately.

Of course, there are those who have been blessed with great genetics (and we should not hate on them whatsoever). However, if we are being honest, most postpartum women still look a few months pregnant after giving birth, and….

That. Is. Perfectly. Normal.

Postpartum life isn’t always easy. On top of having to care for a new baby, your body is going through a ton of physical and hormonal changes. Your uterus, which has been stretched beyond imagination, is trying to recover...your estrogen and progesterone levels drop dramatically. Because of this and the stress of taking care of your little one, you may experience hair loss or even postpartum depression. So the last thing you should be thinking about is how to hide your postpartum belly.

For your own self-care, embrace your new body and don’t worry about “snapping back” to your pre-pregnancy body.

 Instead, let us ‘SNAPBACK’ to the COMFORT we felt before pregnancy!

As moms, we must prioritize finding things that make us feel comfortable as we enter into this new phase of our lives, instead of being maniacally focused on hiding our postpartum bellies.

One of the most comfortable things new moms need during this time is a pair of postpartum leggings. “Why?”, you may ask. Because they are designed specifically to provide a new mom with the trifecta she wants and needs - comfort, softness and support. Once you are introduced to postpartum leggings, you will be wearing them for months (even years) to come!

It sucks that our society pushes so many new moms to think about how they look first before they think about how they feel. However, we would be completely lying if we said we couldn’t relate to the struggle or have not had the same thoughts as well. We just hope that this will help give you a different perspective on how best to ‘snapback’ after having a baby.

Whether you are 3 weeks from your due date, 3 days postpartum or 3 years into this mom life, our Snapback Postpartum Leggings are the only postpartum leggings you'll need to “snapback” to comfort.

One of the most comfortable things new moms need during this time is a pair of postpartum leggings. “Why?”, you may ask. Well first of all, leggings in general are some of the most comfortable pants you can wear - pre or post pregnancy. Secondly, these amazing pants are designed specifically to provide a new mom with the trifecta she wants and needs - comfort, softness and support.

When we decided to launch our postpartum leggings, we polled moms to find out what they didn’t like about their current options. The top complaints we heard were:

  • They constantly roll down making them annoying to wear
  • The compression design isn't right...either too strong, too weak or it rubs c-section incision
  • They are see through when you bend over
  • They don't provide coverage when lifting shirt to breastfeed

We designed our postpartum leggings to solve these issues and more. Perfect for both c-section and vaginal birth mamas.

Stays Up All Day

Our postpartum leggings feature a high waist panel that help to support your tummy after a c-section or vaginal delivery. Cleverly designed to stay up all day without rolling down, or needing re-adjustment.

Core Support Like No Other

The perfect core compression level to help strengthen weakened abdominal muscles & speed up recovery. Compression from top to bottom helps smooth & flatter your new bottom. For c-section mamas, compression sits above your incision area so that it does not rub your scar.

Soft, Comfy & Squat-proof

Made of the perfect fabric blend, these are soft, comfy and not see through - basically squat proof. Wear them without fear of showing the entire world your underwear.

Breastfeed With Confidence

The high waist panel on these leggings provide a great tummy coverup for those mamas who choose to breastfeed.

I love these leggings! I love how comfortable they are and how supported I feel! I’m 2 weeks postpartum and they have helped me so much!!

Jasmine M.

I am 6 days postpartum and have been living in these leggings. They support my healing stomach and make my body look and feel more like my pre-pregnancy self. I highly recommend!

Kristen R.

These are my third pair! I'm almost 3 months postpartum and these have helped me heal from my c-section. Doesn’t aggravate my scar, which is nice. Whether you are 1 month or 10 months postpartum you NEED these leggings!! Absolutely love these leggings and how they feel! (The colors are beautiful too!)

Rebecca B.

I loved these leggings so much I bought a second pair. I am 6 weeks postpartum, 145lbs, 5'6". I love the support they give without making me feel like a stuffed sausage if you know what I mean. I’ve tried so many other brands and I haven’t found the comfort and compression these offer. I basically live in the leggings whether taking care of my babe, working out, or sleeping.

Pamela R.

Good postpartum leggings! I've tried a couple of brands before (including the more expensive ones), but these are the best so far. Being the tummy panel and the leggings a single piece helps shaping your tight. I highly recommend getting them!

Preston N.

LOVE these postpartum leggings! After trying them on, I immediately told my husband I was going to have to buy another pair. They really helped bring my confidence back after having my baby.

At Preggo Leggings, we say “motherhood is hard enough, so let us take care of the pants thing.”
