Original Belly Wrap
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!
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
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.

Finding Your Size
To ensure the most accurate sizing, we do not advise sizing earlier than the 8th month. Please note, every “body” is different and determining your postpartum Belly Wrap size is not an exact science.
So I gave it 3 stars because I can’t fault the wrap for doing what everyone said it would do and I still bought it. I first wore this wrap 4 days postpartum and it was like heaven! I felt like everything was lose and I couldn’t even talk properly because of how dangly everything felt in my stomach. After putting this on, it was an instant relief. I felt put together and could even go up and down the stairs (I had a c-section). But when I wore this the second day, it started to fold and crease in very uncomfortable places and after a week of wearing it on and off, I had to put it aside because it hurt pretty badly to wear it. I know the company says that you should continue to wear it even with the ceases but it really is extremely uncomfortable. I bought the cheapest one for this reason, but I don’t think it’s worth the buy if I can’t even get some good use out of it.
I’m 5’6” and it fit fine. I do have a longer torso so I did find myself pulling and tugging, but that was more for the uncomfortable creasing than anything else. The sizing was on point from the website as well, so no complaints there. I just wish it didn’t crease the way it did.
Love wearing the wrap. I feel supported and slim. Product is made very well. I would recommend going a size up possibly OR just get the extender. I ordered the extender and it helped a lot for the first couple of weeks. Extender attaches easily and strong to the wrap. Now I am already down to just the wrap. Great products!
I wish there was a tall option. I love it but wish it was a tad longer.
Original Belly Wrap
I wore the Original Belly band with my first pregnancy and I swore by it, my stomach bounced right back. This pregnancy I ordered a new one and this one is even more effective and gets tighter than my previous one.
