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've had 4 babies and have never used compression products afterwards until this last one. I bought this hoping it would help with supporting my back and compressing my tummy back to where it should be. I had SPD while pregnant and the extra support would be great! While I understand the concept and feel this is amazing for using while up and about, I find it incredibly uncomfortable while sitting or trying to nurse my little one and am unable to use it all day long. It gets pushed up towards my breast, makes rolls with the fat on my back and it feels a little too short for my torso (I have an average torso, not long). I am 5'4" and 185lbs and bought the large. I will continue to wear it when I go out to the stores or am up and around doing housework but definitely not sitting in it.
It’s amazing product!!! I love it!!!
After an emergency c section this ftm over here needed all the help she could get. With this I feel Supported and strong. Without it it was difficult to get out of bed because parts hadn’t gonna back to a normal size yet. I wear Every day. I am 5’1 and 129 lbs. Currently 8 wks pp. would definitely recommend this to anyone and buying another one before returning to work for support. pic is 8 mo pregnant and 1 month pp Wearing the wrap from 4 days pp
I love this wrap! I was nervous about getting the original because I saw complaints about the quality. I have absolutely no complaints! I am 5’11 and my pre-pregnancy weight was about 145. The small was perfect for me! Once you get it on, it’s comfortable and you don’t notice it! I felt like it’s helped my uterus shrink!
