Original Belly Wrap
Original Belly Wrap
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.
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
- 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
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 immediately post-delivery, 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!
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 compression tanks, leggings, shorts, and our popular Mother Tucker Corset.

Finding Your Size
Please note, every “body” is different and determining your postpartum Belly Wrap size is not an exact science. Measure around your belly at the largest part, which is usually around the belly button. In the sizing calculator, select your week of pregnancy and belly measurement. The calculator will generate a recommended size.
I have tried this on but haven’t worn it yet. It’s a pretty stiff band, which is great for support, but I’m 3 weeks postpartum and still to sensitive to wear it because I’m constantly going from sitting to standing etc. I’ll definitely be using this in the future but I kind of wish I would have spent the extra money on the viscose or luxe wrap.
I started wearing the original belly wrap a few days after delivery. It was awesome--great support while walking around and made me feel like my abdomen was beginning to remember the shape it was before pregnancy. I am three weeks postpartum now and still wearing it, but I've been really disappointed that the wrap has a few creases that feel like the fabric is breaking down. I'm not sure if mine is defective or if others have experienced this but now when I put it on, the band doesn't feel as supportive because of these creases in the fabric. I've been careful not to sit down with the band on so that it retained its shape, but that hasn't felt like the case with mine. For the amount that I paid for it, seems like the fabric should have held up a bit better.
I am in love with this belly wrap! It gives great support and feels great!
I’ve many different wraps, searching for just the right amount of firm supportive compression. This wrap beats them all, totally in love.
It was too big so I had to return it. Unfortunately, I haven’t reordered because they won’t give it to me for the same price or free shipping.
