Questions on our Anti Stretch Mark Pack

March 06, 2015

Many of you have contacted us in the last few weeks, with a number of different questions.  We've summarised them below and tried to provide you with the best possible answers.

If you have any other burning questions or queries, concerning stretch marks or how to prevent them using your Secret Saviours Anti Stretch Mark Pack then please do leave us a comment or contact us

Question 1) Could you provide some clearer instructions on how to measure your bump please, as I'm not sure if if doing it correctly?

Answer 1) The best way to measure yourself for our Anti Stretch Mark Band is to take the measurement of the largest part of your bump - that is usually (but not always) around the belly button.   You can then order the size that’s right for you - the sizing is as follows : 

Small - 80-100 cm
Medium - 100-120 cm
Large - 120-140 cm

Question 2) When putting on the Anti Stretch Mark Band which way is ‘up’, or doesn't it matter which way we wear it?

Answer 2) In order for the Bump Pads to help stop stretch marks effectively you need to wear the Anti Stretch Mark Band in a particular way.  The stamped label needs to at the back of your body, against your skin, at the top.  This should place the Bump Pads directly in contact with the skin of your belly.

Question 3) When should I start wearing my Secret Saviours Anti Stretch Mark Band?

Answer 3) We recommend that in order to help prevent stretch marks from forming, that you should begin to wear the Anti Stretch Mark Band from 12 - 14 weeks, or when your bump starts to show.  Whilst your Anti Stretch Mark Band will expand with your growing bump, most women require two sizes of band to cover the whole pregnancy.

Question 4) Can I wear the Anti Stretch Mark Band after a C section?

Answer 4) Yes, you can, as this will support the relaxing abdominal wall. In addition, the active ingredient (Centella asiatica) within our Day Gel and Night Cream is proven to help with wound healing.

Remember, if you have any queries or questions, do get in touch or leave a comment.

Do you know about Reflexology?
Do you know about Reflexology?

Reflexology is a complementary therapy that is used to treat symptoms all over your body using only pressure from your fingertips on your feet (and sometimes hands). It’s far more than a lovely foot massage as it’s based on the belief that your feet map your body, with pressure points linking to corresponding organs and tissues.

Men can suffer pregnancy symptoms too

This condition is called Couvade Syndrome which comes from the French word “couver” meaning “to hatch” and although most doctors and midwives will tell you they have experienced expectant fathers suffering from this condition there is no medical diagnosis for it. However Dr Arthur Brennan, who was the author of the study undertaken at St George’s Hospital says: "Some people may perceive this as men trying to get in on the act but far from being attention-seeking, these symptoms are involuntary”.
