Description

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!

*Belly Bandit® is the premiere FDA Registered Medical Device brand in Maternity Support Products and Postpartum Belly Wraps and Corsets. 

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.

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
Details Matter
  • 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

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.

WHEN TO WEAR

We recommend wearing your Belly Wrap post-delivery as soon as your comfortable, for a minimum of 6-10 weeks. However, many women find wrapping to be effective long after this initial period. If you’re breastfeeding, the hormone relaxin may stay in your system longer, giving you even more time to benefit from postpartum compression. Some cultures bind up to a year post-delivery!

For both c-section and vaginal deliveries please check with your healthcare provider for guidance based on your individual delivery especially if you’re experiencing any post-delivery or postpartum issues.

If you have any concerns about being “too late” for the Belly Bandit Belly Wrap, we encourage you to check out our Mother Tucker® Shapewear Collection. The Mother Tucker line features our Belly Bandit compression technology in tanks, leggings, shorts, and our popular Mother Tucker Corset.

How does the Original Belly Wrap Work?

A post pregnancy belly wrap is designed to offer much-needed support through compression technology. Our Original Belly Wrap features a unique Power Compress Core™ that applies 360 degrees of targeted compression around your belly, waist, and hips to keep you feeling tucked in and secure.

Why do I need the Belly Bandit Original Belly Wrap?

After birth, your body is in a state of healing and recovery. A postpartum belly wrap like the Original Belly Wrap can aid in your recovery by promoting mobility, easing discomfort, and providing core muscle support. With the Original Belly Wrap, you can get back to feeling like yourself again in no time.

The Original Belly Wrap can also provide support while exercising and help with strengthening muscles weakened during pregnancy, especially for those experiencing diastasis recti, an abdominal separation that commonly affects pregnant women.

How long after birth should I wear this belly wrap?

We recommend starting to wear a post pregnancy belly wrap as soon as you feel comfortable after giving birth, and wearing it for a period of at least six to 10 weeks. Many women continue wearing the Original Belly Wrap for longer, especially as a breastfeeding posture support.

Be sure to consult with your care provider if you have any questions about wearing a belly wrap.

How many hours should I wear a postpartum belly wrap?

A postpartum belly wrap can be worn all day and night, as long as you’re not experiencing discomfort. The goal is to feel snug and secure, without cutting off circulation or making it difficult to breathe. Remove your belly wrap to shower, and whenever you feel like taking a break.

Do postpartum belly wraps really work?

Yes! Belly binding is a centuries-old tradition that is practiced all over the world. A postpartum belly wrap provides sustained, targeted compression to support your recovery and help you look and feel your best after delivery.

Will the Original Belly Wrap help reduce my tummy?

A post pregnancy belly wrap can help slim and shape your tummy during postpartum recovery; it is not intended as a weight-loss tool. The size of your postpartum belly will ultimately depend on a variety of factors, including diet, exercise, and more. And remember: It can take six to 10 weeks for your uterus to contract back to its pre-pregnancy size, so be patient!

Can I sleep with this belly wrap?

Yes. In fact, we recommend wearing it 24/7 (except when showering) for at least the first six weeks after delivery. If you experience any discomfort or have any questions about belly wrapping, consult with your doctor.

Can I use this belly wrap post c section recovery?

Yes! According to the International Journal of Gynecology & Obstetrics, using a post pregnancy belly wrap after a C-section delivery can be a simple, non-pharmacological option for pain relief.

Other great Belly Wraps for C-section recovery include the Luxe Belly Wrap, the ultra-soft Viscose from Bamboo Belly Wrap, and the B.F.F. Belly Wrap.

Will this belly wrap help reduce pregnancy stretch marks?

No. Like any scar, stretch marks are permanent, though they can fade naturally over time. However, by using a Belly Shield under the Original Belly Wrap, you can keep your skin hydrated, which can help relieve redness and itchiness.

How do I know which size belly wrap to buy?

We recommend measuring your belly during your eighth month of pregnancy and using the size guide on our website to find your recommended size. Keep in mind that everyone’s body recovers differently after birth, which can make it a challenge to predict your size ahead of time. If your belly wrap is just shy of closing after delivery, try again in a day or two!

The Original Belly Wrap also features up to 9 inches of adjustability, making it easy to size down as you progress in your recovery. Note: If you are able to close your new, unworn postpartum belly wrap past the Velcro closure, it is too big and will need to be exchanged for a smaller size.

Awesome!

2 years post partum and I haven’t done a whole lot to focus on my abs. I’ve only had this for about a month and it’s made a huge difference! 5/5 will recommend to all moms!

Great product

So glad I got the belly bandit this time. I bought a cheap version after my first pregnancy and it helped, but the belly bandit provides way more support and I feel like my waist has gotten smaller, faster after my second pregnancy. It didn’t fit when I tried it on at the hospital, but I waited and tried again the next day, barely closed but every day I could close it more and more. It does ride up when I sit down or walk a lot but it doesn’t bother me too much.

Great for the Price

I wanted to get the BFF wrap, but with a baby on the way, it’s hard to justify spending almost 100 on a wrap. I decided to go with the original and I’m glad I did! It has done the job perfectly well for almost half the price! I’m 5’4 and was 164 at the end of my pregnancy and the medium was perfect for right after giving birth. I’ve lost over 20 pounds already and it’s still working well!
