    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Actually works! I bought this before I even had my baby girl, and I'm so glad I did. I had a c-section, and was worried it would sit too close to it or would irritate my incision, but it doesn't. The only issue I have with the belly bandit is I am petite, only 5"4 and I have a very short mid-section, so my belly bandit has gotten this annoying fold in it. When I sit down, the BB doesn't have anywhere to go so it has to fold in the middle(horizontally). If there was a product for petite people who don't have a long midsection, it would be fabulous! Either way, I'm wearing my BB, I'm only 9 days post-op and have already dropped 15lbs!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product I bought the Belly Bandit about 2 months ago. I bought two, size M and S. I wore the M for the first two weeks, and then I ended up buying a size S. I wore it for 5 weeks. I think it helped. Im back to my pre-pregnancy weight, but I still have some toning to do in my abdominal area. I didn't like the fabric. I was hard, and after wearing the Bandit day and night I was ready to get rid of it. The Bandit folds and irritated my skin. So I ended up wearing it over a tank top. I would recommend this product because I am back to wearing my pre-pregnancy clothes, but it is uncomfortable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable, supportive, easy I bought my belly bandit prior to my c section delivery in hopes of bouncing back to my pre-pregnancy body since I've always had an athletic build. I was a size 1 before pregnancy and so I purchased an XS. I disappointed when I tried to wear it 4 days postpartum and it wouldn't even close! I even filled out a return slip but tried it 2 days later out of curiousity and it barely closed so I kept it. All if sudden I began to shrink and at 2 weeks postpartum it isn't as tight as I need it. I loved the support it provided to my weak core and I definitely think it helped to shrink my waist but I had to dock it a star on my rating because I feel like now I need an XXS and there isn't one available.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great item!! helped me lose 35 pounds!!! I purchased my belly bandit original a week prior to my second c section. Going in on the day I had my daughter I had weighed 180 and one month after birth I weighed 148. I put the belly bandit on right after I gave birth (3 hrs or so after.) And it also helped me with breastfeeding support too. It's just all around amazing. I have recommend this to many mothers!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really works I bought this product right before delivery because I wanted to have it at hand! This is by far the best product I've ever used for my tummy. I will let my before n after photos do the talking. I will recommend this product to all my pregnant friend for postpartum recovery success!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really recommend! I was pregnant with twins, and gained 40 pounds only in my belly. After birth, my abdominal muscles and back muscles were so weak, and I still looked pregnant. I wore the size medium for less than a week, then needed the small. Within days I could Velcro the small to its tightest levels and that provided the support I needed to flatten my tummy and provide back support. I enjoy wearing it and it gives an extra level of confidence. I also have the belly shield, but I prefer to wear th bandit over a fitted tank under my shirt. I'm back to a size 4 only two weeks after twins, and at my pre-pregnancy weight and feel like I look pretty good! :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A GODSEND!! I bought this at 4 days post-partum bc I wanted to be sure of my measurements before "guessing" like they pretty much tell you to in your eighth month- good thing too or if have bought mine 2 sizes too big!! I measured a 37.5" belly across the biggest section, so I sized down and bought a small... At first I couldn't get it on standing up and it barely closed laying down... Now 3 days later I'm almost ready to go buy an extra small!! I bought it truly for vanity reasons, but wear it 24/7 for comfort, once I started wearing it it really felt like it gave my belly the support it needed and now when I take it off (to change clothes, etc) my belly aches like it's just hanging there... Proof is in the pictures but I'd recommend this 100%!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast recovery! I originally bought the Belly Bandit to help recover my figure post delivery. After I ended up having a c section, I was so thankful I'd invested in the Belly Bandit. It supported my stomach and kept the weight off of my incision. I was able to walk up to the NICU alone and unassisted just 21 hours after having my baby! Everyone commented on how well I was walking and getting around. Now, my little one is 2 months old and every person I encounter tells me how great I look for having a 2 month old. My stomach is almost 100% flat! I LOVE the Belly Bandit and cannot wait to order more of their products!

  • Questions

    Will this help pull in your ribs, tummy, and hips all at the same time or do you need to adjust it up and down to cover the important areas? 

    Asked by: Danacg
    Yes, it covers all those areas!!!!

    Which band would be best for someone with a small waist and really big hips? I'm scared of rhe band riding up all the time.

    Asked by: Summergyrl
    They will all ride up slightly which means when you sit or stand you may have to adjust the fit. The B.F.F. may be the best fit for you.

    I am confused about the sizing calculator. I am 39 weeks pregnant, and I am 41 inches, it recommends a small.  When I go to select the size to order, it recommends a medium. Which is it??

    Asked by: Jessica Goux
    If in doubt go with the sizing calculators size, it sizes on the smaller side which is what you want! You may have to wait a day or two, but it will fit!

    I am hesitant between the original and the organic one. I need to lose inches around my belly but also go back to my hips and rib cage size. Looks like some are smaller in height than others. Which one is the most likely to help me with rib cage and hips?

    Asked by: marina
    The Original and the Organic are the same height, but if you are unsure you may want to look in to using the Hip Bandit as well.

    If I get stretch marks during pregnancy, should I wait to use the belly bandit? I've heard that it can make stretch marks worse or not heal well, and that you need to wait before using these. What is your experience / recommendation?

    Asked by: jenniferw19
    We've never heard of this before, stretch marks are known to get worse if skin continually stretches post pregnancy. This can help if you have gained a lot of weight or have multiples. If you wrap loose skin it does tend to help as the belly, waist and hips compresses back down to their normal pre-pregnancy size as it is not constantly pulling down.

    I am almost 10 weeks post Partum with my second baby.  I had a c section on my first and normal delivery this time which belt would be best as all my tummy this time is sitting on top of my section scar.  Have I left it to late to start using one. 

    Asked by: Martina
    We would advise to get started ASAP if you are interested! The best band would be the Bamboo or any of the other ones with the Shield!

    I am 4 days postpartum. I had to have a csection. When should I start wearing my original belly band?

    Asked by: EmLom
    Because c-sections are a surgery we ask that you check with your Doctor, If you are feeling up to it, most often you can start right away.
