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
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.

WE KNOW SIZE MATTERS!
How People Are Wearing
Original Belly Wrap
After putting in my measurements of postpartum and 39inches, the sizing guide recommended a size small. The band doesn’t even overlap itself. In fact, it’s short by ~5 inches. The sizing guide is nowhere close to being accurate. The guide recommends buying a size smaller plus an extender. Can’t imagine how an XS would fit! Now I’m forced to either buy a $20 extender or pay $6.95 to return the band because this company provided me the wrong recommendation. This is absurd. I’m 2 weeks PP and already down 30 lbs. I only have another 10lbs to get down to my pre pregnancy weight which won’t make enough of a difference for this band to fit. So word to the wise, don’t follow the sizing guide. Buy one size up unless you want to get screwed by this company.
This is a great wrap, however, the sizing guide is way off. I measured at 39 weeks and again at 3 days post birth, and both times was recommended a size S. However, when I got the wrap it was 5-7 inches away from being able to close. I ordered the extender and wore both for a few weeks, and now at 3 weeks past delivery I can finally get the original S wrap to close. Frankly, it is annoying to have to purchase 2 products...the extender should really be included with the wrap especially when the size guide is so inaccurate.
I ordered the original belly bandit and it did help my stomach go down post-partum. I started using it 9 days after I delivered and still helped a lot. I am almost back in my pre pregnancy jeans! The only part I didn’t like was that it creased by the third time wearing it but otherwise I love it!
It has been uncomfortable to consistently wear my belly bandit due to postpartum night sweats as well as 'Los Angeles in July' day sweats. This is not the fault of the product, obviously, but a material that wicks moisture would be an amazing improvement! I'm only 3 weeks postpartum and have worn the product about 60% of the time. Despite my inconsistency, my belly already seems flatter than it did at this point following my last pregnancy. I've also noticed an improvement in my digestion while wearing the product. Despite the discomfort in sweat/heat, I would definitely recommend Belly Bandit.
