Why You'll Love It

  • Designed with two compression zones for your specific recovery needs.

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.

Great support, quality could be better

This is a wonderful product that I wish I knew about for my 1st C-section. I am recovering from my 3rd C-section and this has been a game changer. I only purchased 1 (due to the price) and although I love the product, I think the quality could be better (see photos of the stitching falling apart after only 2 wears).

Sizing chart was spot on!

I am 1 week postpartum and am loving these recovery undies! I was able to wear them the day after giving birth vaginally and it made everything feel tight and secure. It does not roll down and is comfortable to sit in and bend and all of that.

10/10 would recommend!

Nice- but could use an improvement

These were great the first couple of days after delivery. However, as my stomach started to shrink, this became too loose and I could tell it wasn’t hugging me as tightly.

It would be great if there were several rows of hooks that you could choose from and tighten as your stomach shrinks. It would extend the life of this product.

Nice and comfortable

The recovery undies is Really comfortable and easy to use. The fabric is soft and doesn’t hurt your scars.

My only suggestion is to make something with more adjustable parts so you can stretch more and make more pressure in our belly, since we start to lose weight.

Must have for postpartum

I bought this for recovery from my repeat cesarean and I wish I would’ve known about this product with my first. I thought initially it would be uncomfortable and possibly hurt, but it was the exact opposite. The compression helped so much while my uterus contracted back to normal and my organs shifting back to where they need to be. It also helped me feel more secure when getting up from a lying position. No rolling down or adjusting necessary, so comfortable I wore all day and night for the first 1 week after birth. I got back to my pre-pregnancy size after that (*keep in mind, I gained 45lbs during pregnancy)
Pictures included: last pregnancy belly, striped shirt- 2 days postpartum wearing binder, yellow shirt- 9 days postpartum
