She's already lost 30lbs since giving birth almost four months ago.But in a bid to lose her remaining post-pregnancy pounds, Holly Madison, 33, has turned to a compression belt device - which promises to help women get rid of their 'mommy tummy'.The Belly Bandit - costing between $50 and $80 - is designed to be worn for six to eight weeks post birth. It helps new mothers regain their figure by 'body shaping' through the application of 'medical-grade' pressure.The compression also helps to flush body fluids away from the skin and reduce swelling, according to the makers.Holly and her club promoter boyfriend Pasquale Rotella welcomed their daughter Rainbow Aurora in March.

In October 2011, Alba sued in excess of $1million for using her name and image on their website.
At the time, Alba alleged: 'Defendant has knowingly and intentionally misappropriated and used the well known and internationally recognised name, image, likeness and photograph of Alba to market and sell Defendant’s Belly Bandit post-pregnancy clothing and accessories... '
It seems Jessica didn't take kindly to the fabrication a fictitious testimonial, as well as Belly Bandit's claims: 'Jessica Alba’s #21 Secret for a fast Post Pregnancy Slimdown!'
