The Ab Tank is a gentle supportive top that is recommended as the base layer underneath the Ab Wrap (sold separately).  It is designed to fit underneath the bust to allow for easy breast/chest feeding or for skin-to-skin cuddles.  It is made extra long so that it fits over the newly postpartum belly and won’t ride up.  The tank comes in two colors: Black and Beige.

Some new Moms choose to wear just the Ab Tank for their recovery while others prefer to wear it in conjunction with the Ab Wrap.  For many the Ab Tank becomes an on-going layering piece due to its comfort, and gentle shaping features.  Alone or with the Ab Wrap , the Ab Tank is comfortable, breathable and provides just the right amount of ‘hug’ to your torso.

The Ab Tank and Ab Wrap were designed to be worn together.  The Ab Tank is a form fitting base layer that provides support itself, however with the addition of the wrap you get amazing pelvic, low back and abdominal support.  Some expectant Mothers worry that the Ab Tank and Ab Wrap may show underneath clothing.  Rest assured, the Manufacturer has made great efforts to make them as sleek as possible so they are not visible.  If you would like to wear them separately you may but like bacon and eggs, they are best together!

SHOULD I WEAR THE AB TANK AND AB WRAP AT NIGHT?

​This is personal preference.  In the very early days after your baby is born we recommend wearing it 24/7 so yes, to bed but if you are moving a lot while sleeping then you may want to wear just the tank.  After the initial few weeks it will be based on your comfort.  Some wear the tank and wrap to bed and love it while others prefer just the tank to sleep and both during the day only.

WHEN SHOULD I START WEARING MY AB TANK AND AB WRAP?

As soon as possible after your baby is born is ideal.

WHAT KIND OF FABRIC IS THE AB TANK AND WRAP MADE WITH?

We searched high and low for the fabric that would meet our needs. We wanted a smooth and silky feel in a lightweight, breathable material that would also promote tissue recovery through warmth. The Ab Tank fabric is a 82% polyester and 18% spandex.

CAN I USE THE AB SYSTEM AFTER A CESAREAN?

Absolutely!  The Ab System is suitable for use whether you have a vaginal birth or a cesarean birth and in fact, many professionals believe it is an absolute must after a cesarean birth.  The beauty of the Ab System is that you have versatility depending on the sensitivity of your incision.  Some start with just the tank and then add the wrap a few days later.  Some start with both right away while others wear nothing for a few days and then add the tank and wrap.  We even had a midwife choose to wear it backwards with the lumbo-sacral pad over her incision because she liked more pressure on it.  We have had feedback that the design of our wrap was much better than others because of the elastic arms and that it is put on from the bottom up, not as a large panel over another panel.  This helps lift the belly away from the incision.  As for the exercises, we recommend starting with the core breath, as you would after a vaginal birth but hold off on adding in the voluntary pelvic floor contractions for a week or so and just focus on the breath and visualizing the contract and relax of your pelvic floor.
