“I noticed you have different panties in the Hysterectomy Store. When would I wear Mesh Panties?”
Mesh Panties are perfect when you come home from the hospital. In fact, you may recognize these panties as similar to those the hospital put on you the first day of surgery.
These panties are lightweight, VERY stretchy and are perfect over your fresh incisions, stitches and swollen belly. They are also perfect to hold Peri-Pads in place as you need them or Peri-Cold Packs if you had vaginal surgery.
Are you ready for your upcoming surgery? Look no further! We have specific items that are super helpful to recover from your hysterectomy (tummy tuck, c-section or hernia repair).
This Ready and Prepped Set contains 5 items: the Perfect Pocket binder (with 2 cold/heat packs), a Silky Sac, Earplugs, a mini-phone fan and a copy of What 400,000 Women Know about Hysterectomy booklet.
For more details, read product descriptions on their individual pages:
Question: You have two binders in your store and you package them together and sell them separately. Do I need them both? If I can only buy one, which one should I buy?
We think the best way to answer your question is to tell you a little bit about both binders and explain the differences and how they are used.
The abdominal binder is 6” tall which is much better sizing for women than the typical 9” and 12” binders most hospitals provide.It velcro closes to allow you to determine the amount of compression that feels best on your belly.
With darts sewn in the back that helps contour and sizing, the binder fits a woman’s torso. The contoured shape keeps the binder from rolling or twisting as you move around. Used for all stages of your abdominal (hysterectomy, tummy tuck, c-section) recovery, the binder adds gentle to firm compression.
The pocket binder is also 6” tall and has a mesh pocket in the front. The pocket’s cold/heat packs can either be frozen (soft freeze) or warmed (in the microwave) to provide cooling comfort to fresh incision or warm for a sore belly after several weeks post-surgery if your doctor approves of heating pad.
We package the two binders together with a laundry bag (the Silky Sac) and two cold/hot packs in the Great Binder Set.
Or the binders can be purchased separately.
When to use the Pocket Binder
We often tell women that the pocket binder is great for your tender tummy right after you’ve had surgery to help with gentle compression and ice pack. Then, you can continue to use the pocket binder without a cold pack by adjusting the binder using the velcro closure.
If you want or need heating against your tummy for this surgery or any other tummy aches in the future, the pack can be heated and even worn under clothes.
When to use the Abdominal Binder
This binder is the general, all purpose binder that fits nicely, has velcro closure to adjust to your needs. It can be worn under your pajamas, your clothing, while you sleep or during the day as you recover.
To us, its a toss up if you could buy just one. Some of us would vote for the pocket binder – because you can use it with or without the cold/hot packs. Some would vote for the simple abdominal binder because it is no frills and simple.
So we aren’t sure we’ve answered your question but perhaps the information and details we’ve provided can help you determine which binder would be the best option for you – if you can buy only one.
