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.

Sizing is Key!

It works!

I really like the belly band. I got mine a week PP and my stomach noticeably shrank. I’m not sure how quickly it would have shrunken on its own though, without the use of aids. My friend sleeps in hers so I also tried to do that, only taking the band off to shower, but nights are brutal and I sweat a lot PP and this band just trapped sweat. Otherwise, really great product.

Not great but not terrible

I felt like it helped with my posture but other than that I wasn’t a fan at all. I am short to begin with and felt like it wasn’t long enough for my torso and belly. So I was either muffin topping out the bottom near my hips or at the top near my bra. I really wouldn’t buy it again.

Difficult to use without help

It’s hard to get the compression you need without assistance. It also isn’t the most comfortable. I prefer the leggings or biker shorts over this wrap.

Good for the price

It’s a lot taller than the picture shows and a tad uncomfy, but does the job! I’m 5’5” 145lbs pre-pregnancy and the Small comes right up under my boobs. I don’t like nursing in it cuz it pushes up under your breasts when sitting down.

Splurge on the Lux if you can!

I liked this after an unexpected c section with my first child two years ago. I just had my second c section for baby 2 March 20 and used this a few times and thought it was fine but got annoyed at the bunched it did (see photos to see the lines it bunches into). I saw they had a new version called the Lux and gave that a go. I think their Lux is much better than this version in quality and fit. This version is better though if you’re looking for something less bulky.
