Hi All, I have been looking at hip helpers for erin as she is currently doing the splits thing to get up from her tummy to sitting.... I live in the UK and they want to charge me $15 + $30 for delivery! Does it really cost that much to get something sent over from the US or is this company taking the mick?

Does anyone know of anywhere in the UK where I can buy them or does anyone have some that they would like to sell me??

I made my own! With the help of my PT. I just made a lycra tube that narrowed at one end. It went from her waist down to her knees, tight but not too tight, then I sewed up the middle where her legs would go to make them like shorts. I would advice doing it under the direction of the PT, my originals were too short, and didn't cover the knees, and for Paige, this was important.
It only took like 20 minutes to make, and did the job!
