Description

C-sections can be a real mother!

After delivery - and once you're ready (be it two days or two weeks post-surgery), these support and recovery undies will come to your rescue with targeted compression to help reduce swelling, and silver-infused fibers that can help eliminate bacteria and odor.

Why You'll Love It
  • Easy pull-on design
  • Breathable fabric helps keep you cool
  • Can be used after vaginal delivery
  • Designed with two compression zones for your specific recovery needs.

Upper area provides firm compression which may help:

  • Reduce swelling and discomfort
  • Support core muscles and stabilize mid-section during recovery
  • Promote mobility

Lower area offers light compression and silver-infused fibers which may help:

  • Gently protect incision site
  • Help minimize odor and bacteria

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.

Details Matter
  • Dual compression zones for your specific recovery needs
  • Breathable fabric
  • Stayput technology for a no-roll waist
  • Silver-infused yarns in front panel help minimize odor and bacteria
How To Wear
  • Don't let the hook-and-eye clasps intimidate you…you can step into these undies with the clasps already fastened!  
  • Gotta go? No need to unhook – simply pull gusset to the side for easy access.

How does Belly Bandit C-Section Recovery Underwear work?

Post-delivery, C-section underwear is a lifesaver. Constructed from a soft, breathable fabric, these undies keep you cool and comfortable; protect your incision site during recovery; and offer targeted compression to help reduce swelling in the areas you need it most.

Why do I need Belly Bandit C-Section Recovery Undies?

If you’ve just had a C-section, trust us: You’ll want C section recovery underwear ASAP. You’ll want support for your weakened muscles and protection for your incision site to promote faster healing. They’ll give you the confidence you need to get back to your daily routine and be ready to take on any challenge motherhood throws your way.

Do Belly Bandit c-section undies provide compression?

You bet! In fact, they provide two different levels of compression in the areas you need it most: firm compression around your mid-section to support your core and lower back, and light compression around your incision to reduce swelling without causing discomfort.

When should I start wearing c-section underwear?

You can start wearing C-section recovery underwear as soon as you’d like. Some women feel comfortable wearing them just a few days after surgery, while others prefer to wait until a few weeks post-surgery to start wearing them regularly. Remember, these undies should be snug and supportive, not uncomfortably tight. Be sure to measure yourself post-delivery and reference our Underwear Size Chart to find the best size for your recovering body.

What makes Belly Bandit c-section panties different from other compression undies

At Belly Bandit, it’s the details that really matter. That’s why we don’t just make compression undies; we make post-C-section underwear. Designed with Stayput™ technology to prevent rolling and uncomfortable pinching, all of our panties are sewn with soft, high-quality fabrics that we blend with silver-infused yarns to help minimize odor and prevent bacteria, so you can feel fresh and comfortable all day long. With so many little details added to help soothe specific pains from C-section surgery, you’ll never want to settle for just a regular pair of compression undies ever again.

How Belly Bandit C-Section recovery undies help with postpartum

Even though they’re designed with C-section recovery in mind, these undies can also be used after vaginal delivery. Every woman deserves to own at least one pair of reliable underwear, especially during postpartum. With so many changes happening simultaneously, your body needs all the support it can get. The targeted compression zones in C-section recovery undies help combat postpartum aches and swelling by providing much-needed support to overworked muscles. Soft, breathable, and easy to take on and off, these undies have everything you need to face postpartum symptoms head-on!

Will these undies help reduce swelling?

They may. Every woman’s road to recovery will be a little bit different, but many medical professionals recommend abdominal binders as an effective, simple, non‐pharmacological option for relieving pain and swelling after a Cesarean delivery.

Are Belly Bandit c-section undies sweat wicking and odor resistant?

Absolutely! Our C-section undies are constructed using a breathable seamless knit to keep you cool and dry throughout the day. We also design the front panel of all our C-section undies with silver-infused fibers to minimize odor and bacteria around your incision site.

What is the best underwear for post c-section recovery?

We know we’re biased, but we think the best underwear for C-section recovery is Belly Bandit’s C-Section & Postpartum Recovery Undies. Check out the reviews and you’ll see we’re not the only ones who describe these undies as life-changing!

Will the Belly Bandit c-section undies help minimize recovery time?

It’s possible! Belly Bandit’s C-section undies are designed to promote faster healing by providing support to weakened muscles. They also use compression technology to encourage healthy blood flow, which can reduce swelling and discomfort. Many women find them to be a crucial part of their recovery.

Love this product

I’m on my 3 pair because I have to use one and wash the other. This brief really gives my stomach the support that I need. I only had one pair where the rods came out but I still use it. I want the long legged one but it doesn’t come in XL, I can’t wait till it does!!!!

C section panties

5’5”, 125 pre-pregnancy, 153 at time of delivery and my belly measured 41 inches at 38 weeks 5 days. I purchased the M and the S. I tried the M on the day after my surgery and they fit and provided really great support. You need to go slow and pull them up over the incision, but once on it’s great. Only con…you really can’t just reach down and pull out the bottom when you are actively bleeding and using pads. I just take the time to undo them each time, it’s not a big deal.

Size up

Size medium is very tight on my 5'4" 150lb few weeks post-partum body, i can feel additional pressure in my pelvic floor so am avoiding wearing this for now. I am keeping it though because this seems a perfect support garment for use after I strengthen my pelvic floor/loose a little bellyfat. Should have purchased a large. In the meantime the simple binder from the hospital used when lying down is fine.
