Slendertone belt if bladder prolapse?

I have a mild to moderate bladder prolapse after 2 kids (the youngest is 4). I want to buy a slendertone belt to help tone my tummy. I run for 30 mins twice a week and am quite fit and have a small frame but I can't shift the baby tummy fat and can't do sit ups because of my prolapse so thought a belt might help.

Am assuming belt won't have any bad affect on my prolapse. Anyone know?

Forgot to say - the main reason for wanting one is to stop people constantly asking me if I'm preggers!

No idea on the belt/prolapse, but just wondering are you sure the tummy fat is not a diastasis recti? Just wondering as that can make people who are otherwise very trim and fit look pregnant. If so, you'd need to get that sorted with specific exercises rather than trying anything else.
