B.F.F. Belly Wrap
B.F.F. Belly Wrap
Over a decade ago, we introduced our doctor-recommended Belly Bandit® Belly Wraps to help slim and your support your belly, waist and hips post-delivery. We were inspired by the centuries-old tradition of postpartum belly binding and modernized this age-old practice for today's moms.
Our world famous Belly Wraps are designed to help you look and feel your absolute best after delivery – because when you deliver, so do we!
*Belly Bandit® is the premiere FDA Registered Medical Device brand in Maternity Support Products and Postpartum Belly Wraps and Corsets.
The B.F.F. utilizes our Power Compress Core™ to apply targeted compression, which may help:
- Slim and support your belly, waist, and hips
- Strengthen core muscles weakened during pregnancy (especially helpful if you have an abdominal separation, also called diastasis recti)
- Promote mobility, helping you get back to your daily activities more quickly
- Ease back pain
- Encourage better posture, especially important during breastfeeding
- Offer support while exercising
- Provide comfort after C-section
- The International Journal of Gynecology & Obstetrics has found that abdominal binders can be an effective, simple, non‐pharmacological option of relieving pain and distress after a Cesarean delivery.
Recommended for those with shorter waists
- Features our exclusive, latex-free Power Compress Core™
- 9" of adjustability so you can continue to tighten the wrap as you size down
- Curved design
- 6 support panels
- 2 compression panels with 2 tabs to customize compression level and fit
- Covered in silky-soft viscose from Bamboo
The ideal fit for your Belly Bandit® Belly Wrap is a snug one, with constant pressure on the belly - but without any impact on breathing or circulation. (If discomfort occurs, remove the wrap and consult your healthcare provider.)
Note: The first time you wear your wrap, it may barely close. That's ok. You want to have the length of the Velcro® closure available so you can keep tightening your wrap as you recover and size down.
WHEN TO WEAR
We recommend wearing your Belly Wrap immediately post-delivery, for a minimum of 6-10 weeks. However, many women find wrapping to be effective long after this initial period. If you're breastfeeding, the hormone relaxin may stay in your system longer, giving you even more time to benefit from postpartum compression. Some cultures bind up to a year post delivery!
If you have any concerns about being "too late" for the Belly Bandit Belly Wrap, we encourage you to check out our Mother Tucker® Shapewear Collection. The Mother Tucker line features compression tanks, leggings, shorts, and our popular Mother Tucker Corset.

Finding Your Size
Please note, every “body” is different and determining your postpartum Belly Wrap size is not an exact science. Measure around your belly at the largest part, which is usually around the belly button. In the sizing calculator, select your week of pregnancy and belly measurement. The calculator will generate a recommended size.
At almost 42 years old I was skeptical about this product, but so glad I made the purchase. Picture of me at 37 weeks, just 6 days before delivery, and then one week postpartum. I started wearing the BFF Belly Wrap the day after I delivered for short periods and gradually increased per my comfort level. I enjoy the abdominal and back support and plan to continue to wear it until I’m fully healed and recovered.
Great for postpartum swelling/bloated ness. I used it a few days after delivery (4 hours a day) and saw a huge difference. Diet and drinking water is also important, but I found this helpful for my diastasis recti (at least several hours a day at a time)
I wanted to love this product based on its good reviews; however it doesn’t live up to the expectations I had. After only wearing if for a month (about an hour a day) it has a permanent crease through the middle. It also does not stay in place and creeps up. It either causes a bulge above or below the band (depending on where it sits on my torso). It definitely is too short for my torso and could be a couple inches longer to maybe help with it staying in place and not creating unsightly bulges. It gets two stars for the support it does provide to my core while wearing it.
A girdle is an absolute necessity for pain management post C-section. Belly shield is best for light compression till about a week postpartum. The hospital will provide you with a wrap, but in my opinion, this is one area where you should treat yourself to something nice. Belly wrap is great after about a week. It allows greater compression and support and is really nicely adjustable. It does ride up a bit, and I found it to run a bit small. I have the extender, which works well, and I will be able to use the wrap for many months as (hopefully) my belly shrinks. Great product. This will make a huge difference in your comfort and mobility if you deliver by C-section.
Postpartum: 5'5 and currently 148 lbs. Ordered the small and it is tight, but I was originally 125 lbs pre-pregnancy. I can't wear it the entire day, but definitely helps to "suck in" my stomach area when I do. I have a longer torso and I feel I can't cover my entire stomach area the way I'd like to.
