Many women notice their hips are wider after pregnancy, even after returning to their pre-pregnancy weight. During pregnancy, hormones such as relaxin and progesterone are released. Relaxin, as its name implies, causes your body’s connective tissue and joints to relax and loosen. In particular, the pubic symphysis and sacroiliac joints widen to accommodate the enlarging uterus and eventual passage of your baby. These hormones do not return to prepregnancy levels until approximately 8 weeks after delivery, leaving the joints of your hips malleable.
By capitalizing on these normal physiologic changes associated with pregnancy, HipSlimmer, when worn after delivery, applies pressure directly to your hips to help you return to your pre-pregnancy size!
