Original Belly Wrap
Over a decade ago, we introduced our doctor-recommended Belly Bandit® Belly Wraps to help slim and 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!
Why You'll Love It
Our Power Compress Core™ applies 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
- Provide comfort after C-section
- Encourage better posture, especially important during breastfeeding
- Offer support while exercising
- Features our exclusive, latex-free Power Compress Core™
- Up to 9" of adjustability so you can continue to tighten the wrap as you size down
- Made in the USA
How To Wear
For optimal results, we recommend wearing the Belly Bandit® Original Belly Wrap for a minimum of 6-10 weeks after delivery.
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.

How People Are Wearing
Original Belly Wrap
I am undecided on this wrap. I purchased the original belly wrap started wearing it the day I arrived home from the hospital. At first I was in love! Then as the day went on the back started to crease and now it has this uncomfortable pucker/crease in the back. It makes it uncomfortable to wear. Watching the fit guide if you look closely you can see the models band starting to do the same pucker/crease. I still try to wear it for a couple hours a day but it starts to make my back hurt over time. The plus side is that I do feel it helps keep my stomach in tight, it helps my abs not feel so sore from being stretched out. I think this wrap does help with my stomach shrinking.
Was disappointed with all the creases the wrap easily gets even on the first day. I think the material is just too thin on the original wrap. I feel my waist tighter after wearing the wrap but the creases make it uncomfortable so I don’t wear it as often. I’ll probably consider the other styles but afraid it will all be the same.
I haven’t used this new one yet however it is my third one. I’ve used them with every one of my children and it makes such a difference!! Couldn’t imagine not having one after having a baby. Love this product!
I had my son 5 says ago. I started using the belly bandit the day we were released from the hospital (1.5 days after birth). I love how secure it makes me feel. It also supports my back which is much needed so I don’t hunch while breastfeeding. Only “complaint” is regarding the website not being able to take HSA cards even though this is HSA approved. It’s a pain to get reimbursed.
