Belly Bandit Bosom Bandit - Nude The time has come to throw away those painfully tight sports bras. Take that bag of frozen peas & put it where it belongs... in a stir fry! We like a little cabbage... when it's in soup (not in our bras!). We heard your pleas, felt your pain & realized there's no use crying over stopped milk! So, we created a new solution to an age old problem. Our labor of love delivered a remedy for women across the globe! Banditas to the rescue! The Bosom Bandit breast support wrap is an effective and comfortable method to help reduce milk production while supporting tender breasts. When the time comes to suppress lactation, the Banditas realized there are limited options to help mothers through this sensitive transition. We knew there has to be an easier, more convenient approach than squeezing into a tight, non-adjustable sports bra. This is why we've created the strapless Bosom Bandit; a lightweight and simple solution with an adjustable Velcro@ closure. This unique design allows you to choose the desired amount of pressure, eliminating common complaints of neck and shoulder pain, and the unwanted bra strap indentations caused by the weight of engorged breasts. The Bosom Bandit was also created to help supplement the minority of women who are unable to breastfeed. We found the market was void of a product for women who: cannot produce milk, medically are unable to breastfeed, women who have suffered from late term miscarriages or still births, surrogates and women who choose not to breast feed. In addition, this is also used as a support garment in breast reductions and other breast procedures/surgeries. The Bosom Bandit is made from latex free elastic and covered with an ultra soft, moisture wicking fabric for sensitive breasts. To help reduce pain and swelling, we have included a reusable pair of 4" flexible, cooling gel packs lined with fabric. When used together, the Bosom Bandit and gel packs may help prevent and/or treat engorgement of breasts. Band Size: Fits Bosom Size: Cup (S) 30" - 35" (76cm - 88cm) Pint (M) 36" - 40" (90cm - 101cm) Quart (L) 41" - 45" (104cm - 114cm) Gallon (XL) 46" - 51" (116cm - 130cm)
