Belly Bandit® C-Section Recovery Shorts use targeted compression to promote healing and provide extra comfort throughout your postpartum recovery. Unlike regular compression shorts, C-section recovery shorts are designed to give you different levels of support in the areas your body needs it most. Featuring three different compression zones, these shorts help stabilize your core, protect your incision site, and reduce swelling, all while being super comfortable.
C-section recovery shorts are designed to help relieve pain and support healing after a cesarean delivery. No birth is easy, but a C-section can be especially difficult, since it brings many unique postpartum challenges. C-section recovery shorts can help mitigate some of these difficulties to make your recovery a smoother and more comfortable process.
As soon as they feel comfortable! Some moms feel better wearing their C-section recovery shorts on their way home from the hospital, while others prefer to wait a few days before beginning to wear them regularly. Start wearing these C-section recovery shorts after delivery whenever it feels most comfortable for you.
Yes! In fact, Belly Bandit C-Section Recovery Shorts are designed with targeted compression technology, which means they provide different levels of compression to different areas of the body. You can now have the best of both worlds: firm compression levels around your midsection and core, and more gentle compression levels around your incision site.
Technically, yes. However, there really is no need to wear both at the same time, since your Belly Bandit C-Section Recovery Shorts are able to provide the same amount of compression and support around your midsection as a belly band would. A belly band is great to wear in tandem with compression leggings, like our Mother Tucker® postpartum leggings, whereas the C-section recovery shorts are more of an all-in-one option. We like wearing them as regular biker shorts with a comfy oversized tee or sweatshirt.
The Belly Bandit C-Section Recovery Shorts, of course! Not only do they support your core and pelvic floor muscles, but they’re also made from a soft, breathable knit fabric with a panel of silver-infused fibers to help minimize odor and prevent bacteria. And we can’t forget all of the extra features we’ve added for maximum comfort—like the “gotta-go” gusset for easy bathroom use, Stayput™ technology to prevent rolling, and thigh chafing protection. These shorts have everything you could possibly need!
We do not currently offer C-section recovery shorts in plus sizes.
As soon as you‘d like. Of course, we always recommend consulting your primary care physician first to make sure you’re aware of any specific concerns or recommendations they may have for your unique situation.
Great material and quality but runs small - got an L and it is def not for size 12/14 like stated - not sure how this is meant for post partem- and how it’s supposed to fit after giving birth - when swollen, etc - 6 weeks later and I’m size L in pants and size 12 and the L in this band still doesn’t fit …
Started wearing these shorts 4 days after my second csection. They took so much back pain away and i started to see my belly bloat go away within the first day. I am now 2 weeks PP and wear it every day for the core and back support. Only con i have found is the top is starting to roll some.
Ordered a medium and started wearing a week after csection. After a week of wearing 8 hours a day, I had to size down to a size small. I absolutely love the support this provides to my back, pelvis and stomach. I wear the belly wrap while on my feet with it and it adds additional support and comfort. This is by far my favorite product that I have from Belly Bandit, highly recommend for all csection moms.
I have to say I am not one to write reviews but this definitely deserves one. I recently had my third child and it was a csection. With my other two pregnancies my recovery was quick and I was back to normal in no time. this pregnancy on the other hand was a different story. I couldn't look at myself in the mirror I kept trying to Google how to get rid of the csection pooch and was losing hope. I had used the binder the hospital gave me which was so uncomfortable and the netting of the bidder was giving my stomach scabs because of the friction. When I was ready I transitioned to the original belly bandit and was it was great but after a while I found it to be uncomfortable and felt like it was grinding against my Incision. By week 3 of my recovery I stopped wearing anything. I train bjj and seeing as with my other two pregnancies my recovery was faster I was eager to do anything to try and get my body to recovery fast so I could get back on the mats.. at week 4 i felt good I wasn't uncomfortable and I went back. Within two days I had trained 4 times. Now I mightve pushed my self too hard but soon after I went from feeling sore to suddenly my Incision was hurting. I looked and looked for something with compression over the scar area and finally decided to go with this one and OMG this has worked magic. I so upset that it took me being in pain to make this purchase. When I first unwrapped it I said oh no this is too small its not going to fit me. I'm 5' and am at 160lb right now I purchased a small but when I tried it on it fit great . It wasn't too tight . It doesn't roll down or make my back look like I have rolls for being so tight. Today is day number two of wearing it and I can honestly say I see the difference in my pooch . Before if I were to look in the mirror I wouldve not been able to see my scar -Now I can ! It has helped so much I honestly wish I would've purchased this the moment I was discharged from the hospital and who knows how I would've looked like now .
I am three weeks post delivery and I am feeling good and loving these shorts! They make a noticeable difference. I can see and feel the difference every single day. I wear them during the day and then take them off at night. They are super comfortable and sleek under my clothing. I was concerned how they would feel with my stitches but they feel great and do not bother the stitches at all. If anything, they help support that area. I highly recommend and give these 5 stars!
