After coveting the IO wrap top through 2 previous pregnancies, I've finally justified the splurge and bought one this time around.
After much practice I finally got it wrapped so it covered my tum, but I can't get it to look anything like the IO website promises (have watched their demo video), and I keep having to check for gaps as i find it rides up or separates and I end up flashing.
I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, as I just don't feel safe to bend or move around (and especially go to the loo and pull trousers down) without constantly having to readjust.
Before I stick it on ebay, is there a fail safe way to combat this, or has anyone else found the same problem?
I wear a vest top under mine just in case it seperates, but it never has.
I haven't watched the demo, but I wrap one side first, making sure I don't let it ruche at all and that each layer well overlaps the above layer. I find I can wrap it round three times this way. Then I wrap the other side and make sure each 'wrap' covers the joins where the other side overlaps and that each bit is ruched/gathered a bit. I also find I can wrap it three times this way and then obviously tie it, usually at the side, but I have tied at the back before.
Agree about issues going to the loo! It's a big effort to get it looking right in the first place and then too much os a palava to have to sort it out again. By the time the flexible sizing is of most benefit you're weeing so often anyway it's a pain!! Thinks the JoJoMaman wraps tops might be a bit easier but not sure.
