The support bands are miricale workers! I swear by them, after my c/s with DS I lost the weight but had saggy belly issues too that didn't go away but after my c/s with DD I used one combined with BFing and a few (like 10-15) tummy curls a night I have my flat no-pudge belly back.

Saggy skin is pretty much a hereditery thing. I have it. I've contemplated getting a tummy tuck later in life.. we'll see when the time comes. BTW, I doubt it has much to do with your c-sections. I have horrible sag (belly folding over on itself) and have never had a section. It's been this bad since I had my second (who I got fattest with during pg).

Pilates is good for problems like that and I used lotion several times a day on my tummy after the twins.

No. I just used whatever I had, I think it was equate brand for extra dry skin or somehting like that.

gotta love that 'twin skin'!! seriously, did the lotion help? i have lost the weight, but the saggy baggy elephant look is not my style! actually, i don't care all that much, but if i can eliminate some of it, i will try.

for those of you who used the band, did you have to do it right away? is it too late for me? my boys are 10 months old.

No help here, just wanted to commiserate! I was fine after my first dd. After my 2nd dd, even though I got back to my pre-preg weight very quickly and was physically active, I had the saggy skin. It didn't matter that my ab muscles underneath were strong and fit, there was just this extra skin on top that wouldn't tighten. I wonder what it will be like after this babe??!! And don't get me started on pelvic floor muscles and bladder problems....I don't know if they[ll ever recover
