Belly Bandit’s postpartum recovery shorts combine compression technology with the smoothing benefits of shapewear to emphasize your figure while providing complete support to weakened and strained muscles in your core, back, and hips. Using moderate to high levels of compression, these Mother Tucker Shorties encourage healthy blood flow, which may help reduce swelling, lessen muscle soreness, and promote faster healing.
Postpartum shorts are specifically designed to do two things: give your body the extra support it needs for a quick and successful recovery after delivery and smooth out the lumps and bumps to help you feel confident and comfortable in your body as you return to pre-pregnancy activities.
These postpartum shorts are available in two colors — Black and Almond — and we definitely recommend grabbing one of each for added versatility in your wardrobe.
The sooner you start wearing your postpartum compression shorts, the better. Your recovering body needs all the support it can get! However, the exact date of when to start wearing them is entirely up to you. We also always recommend consulting with your doctor to see if they have any specific suggestions about how and when to wear your postpartum shorts.
You bet! The compression technology used to design these shorts is part of what makes them some of the best postpartum shorts on the market. Not only do these postpartum recovery shorts use compression to give your muscles the extra support they need, but they do it all without rolling, pinching, or digging uncomfortably into your skin.
The best postpartum shorts are supportive and comfortable. As a new mom, you have enough going on right now without having to worry about constantly adjusting, tugging, and pulling on your shorts to keep them in the right place! Postpartum recovery shorts should fit snugly, but not so snug that they feel uncomfortable or make it difficult to move.
You can easily find your right size by measuring your waist and hips, then referencing our leggings/bottoms size chart. We recommend measuring yourself post-pregnancy to get the most accurate sizing. However, if you’d like to have a pair of postpartum compression shorts ready to go in your hospital bag, then we suggest ordering one size up from your pre-pregnancy measurements.
Yes — our postpartum recovery shorts are super lightweight. You’re likely to forget you’re even wearing them!
These postpartum shorts are virtually invisible under clothing. Made out of a lightweight, barely-there material, they’re the perfect base layer for any outfit. Plus, the Mother Tucker Shorties are available in Black and Almond, so they go with just about everything.
I wish these shorts would have compression. They also continued to roll down my belly bulge whenever I sat down and bent my torso. They're okay shorts if you want less compression and want a discreet wear.
Check out my video review!
These shorts are FABULOUS. I originally got them to wear under dresses while healing but due to the pandemic I’ve been indoors for the most part. Boy do They come so much in handy!!! They are so uncomfortable and hold everything in place as I heal from my c section but are easy to pull on and off for quick bathroom trips. All I need are these and my baby all wrapped up in a sling and I can get stuff done, or comfortable enough to lounge around in. Highly recommend!
These don't roll up on the thighs which is great but they start to pinch after a while so can't wear them all day. Maybe a couple hours at a time. It's the fabric and it's hard to explain but at first it's comfortable but then over time it starts to scratch and pinch the skin.
I bought for post-partum, & ordered a small. I have a small gut since giving birth (11 days ago) but that’s about it. I was 118 pre pregnancy and have always worn a size small/ 2. This small is labeled for size 4/6.. I couldn’t even get over my thighs. I’m going to keep, since I’m sure I’ll fit into them soon, but I unfortunately can’t wear during my maternity leave which is what I intended.
