These are the best leggings ever. Even if you're not postpartum but want some tummy compression, they're great. I have a pair of Lululemon leggings, but I prefer these way more because the Lululemon ones roll down whenever I bend over. They're so soft. I love that the compression is just in the tummy beause that's only where I need it, so I get the compression but everything else is more comfy. If you wear them all day, it can get a little tight at the top of the waist band which was more of an issue when I was more recently postpartum but they get comfier as I slowly go back to my pre-pregnancy weight. Important to note they are sized like regular leggings. Not like how you order your pre-pregnancy size for maternity clothes & they still fit. So if you have more weight than you did pre-pregnancy, you need a bigger size than you wore pre-pregnancy. I originally got them a couple weeks after the baby & they didn't fit at all (I had gained 65 lbs & hadn't lost much of it) & was going to return them, but I tried them on again after I lost more weight & they fit so much better. I'm currently 5 months postpartum & I think I started wearing them 2 months PP. Also I know the curve under the belly looks stupid in the photos - like it would accentuate a belly or that it looks like maternity leggings, but they don't look weird like that in person. To the pregnant women giving it low ratings, these are not maternity leggings, they're the exact opposite. They compress you in the belly for the postpartum period, maternity leggings are loose in the belly to accomodate for pregnancy. I'm not sure why they have a pregnant women in the photos as I think that's misleading.
