 Atlas FAQs

1.    When Do I Start Using the Atlas 2-IN-1 Band?

Use Atlas (with your doctor's approval) as a pregnancy band as soon as you feel your growing belly affecting your posture or causing back discomfort or sciatic pain. This typically happens between your second and third trimester. 

2.    How do I know which size is right for me?

The Atlas 2-IN-1 Band is available in three sizes: XS-S, M-L, and XL-XXL.  Your Atlas size is based on your pre-pregnancy size.  Please read the measurements in our sizing chart in order to select the one that's right for you.

3.    How Do I wear the pregnancy band and postpartum band?

For maximum results and proper support, please watch our 'How to Use Instructional Video' for the Atlas 2-IN-1 Band and read the “How to Use Instructional Leaflet” Inside Atlas Packaging.

4.    What is the difference between the Atlas 2-IN-1 Band and Cinch?

Atlas 2-IN-1 transitional band is designed for use during pregnancy and after. It includes a postpartum accessory band to use after baby.  The postpartum band doubles as a back support and hip shaper offering 360 degrees of even and controlled compression.  Atlas 2-IN-1 Band is designed with durable elastic materials and breathable fabric. When you buy our Atlas Band, you don't have to buy another band for postpartum support. 

Cinch Tummy Wrap and Cinch Couture are chic postpartum wraps with back support and hip shaper.  Each is made of luxurious sheer fabric with unique elastic components offering 360 degrees of even compression in a lower profile band. Cinch Tummy Wrap is designed as a postpartum band to support, enhance and tone your body while you regain your healthy shape after baby. Cinch Couture is useful for any time you need low profile elegant shapewear.

5.    Can I wear Atlas 2-IN-1 Band with my regular clothes?

Yes! We recommend you wear the Atlas Pregnancy Band/Postpartum Band over a tank top for added comfort.  Wearing loosely fitting clothes will allow for better concealment.

6.  How does Atlas differ in value compared to other bands?

Investing in our Atlas 2-IN-1 Band will allow you to enjoy your pregnancy and motherhood like you never before.  It assists in performing your daily tasks by offering the support needed resulting from the pressures of pregnancy weight.  It enhances your chances of quicker recovery. You only need one band to carry you through your pregnancy and into postpartum recovery.  It expands and shrinks with you during and after your pregnancy. It outlasts and outperforms other bands.

7.  How does Atlas 2-IN-1 Band expand and shrink with me?

It has a double-ended opening with fully adjustable panels that conform to your growing and shrinking belly during and after pregnancy.  The pregnancy band also has elastic side wings offering controlled support.  The postpartum band accessory has a zipper to hold and support you while the accessory elastic bands give you the extra controlled compression.

8.    What is the size of the Atlas 2-IN-1 Band?

Atlas Band is 10.5 inches tall. Length will vary based on size. Our XS-S pregnancy band stretches from 24” to 42”; M-L pregnancy band stretches from 33” to 52”; XL-XXL pregnancy band can stretch from 41” to 60”.

9.    Can I buy the Atlas pregnancy band without the postpartum band?

Yes, you can buy the Atlas pregnancy band separately, although it's recommended to buy the combo for additional value and cost savings.  If you prefer to wear our Cinch Tummy Wrap as a postpartum band, you can buy our Atlas/Cinch combo from our Combo Saving Category in our shopping cart.

10.  Can the postpartum accessory band be used as a post surgery band as well?

Yes.  The 360 degrees of even and controlled compression with tension control is helpful for surgical recovery (always seek the approval of your doctor prior to use).

11.  How long do I use the postpartum band after baby?

The postpartum band was designed to use daily for the first eight weeks. For the next three to six months, use it for at least three to four times a week (always seek the approval of your doctor prior to use).

12.  How do I use the Atlas 2-IN-1 Band as a hip shaper?

At night, you can readjust to fit around your lower abdomen and hips for the first eight weeks after delivery.

13.  Does the Atlas 2-IN-1 come with a cold/warm compress?

Yes! Our Combo Plus Cold/Warm Compress is all-inclusive. The other options do not include compresses.

14.  Does it roll?

Most people say our bands do not roll if worn correctly.  We recommend for optimum results that you don't over-tighten.  When you wear it comfortably around your waist, our high tech materials form and move with you.
