Viscose from Bamboo
Over a decade ago, we introduced our doctor-recommended Belly Bandit® Belly Wraps to help slim and your 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!
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
Soft viscose from bamboo is ultra-comfortable on your skin, and gentle on a recovering C-section incision
- Covered in ultra-soft viscose from bamboo fabric
- 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
For optimal results, we recommend wearing the Belly Bandit® Viscose from Bamboo Belly Wrap for a minimum of 6-10 weeks after delivery.
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.

WE KNOW SIZE MATTERS!
Please note, determining your postpartum Belly Wrap size is not an exact science. Every ”body” is different and we do our best to ensure a proper fit. If you’re still unsure, please choose a Belly Wrap one size down and purchase an Extender.
How People Are Wearing
I had to lay on the bed to close it and when I set up it sounded like it loosen up. Doesn’t give me the right support I need to shape my belly (maybe if it wasn’t velcro). However, this product has helped me with my back pain after my delivery (c-section). It’s comfortable enough that I can wear it to sleep and help support my back when I breast feed in the middle of the night.
Wrap started out great. But it bunches and folds in the back- I feel like the wrap doesn’t hold shape well and isn’t doing much to tighten at their point. I measured a medium and was advised to order up a size. Now that I’ve been wearing a large for a few weeks I need to order a medium. Overall it’s an ok product.
The bamboo Belly Bandit is pretty comfortable. I'm loving the back/posture support and how well it's helping to shrink my mid section. I plan to continue using the product despite two complaints. The band is visible under shirts (unless shirt is flowy/baggy) making the mid section seem larger or lumpy. The band seems to make getting a nice, natural position for breastfeeding trickier and even a bit uncomfortable for me-baby seems to adjust to it but I wonder...
I still recommend this product to others! <3
Super soft and well made! Warning they do run SMALL - I was a size 4 pre-pregnancy and sized to a medium based on the measurements. But the medium did not fit immediately fit around my belly (6 inches off) so I had to add the extension piece. At about 1.5 weeks post partum, the edges finally met, so if I had waited a bit it would have been fine. But, I wanted to get started on compression right away and so I needed the extension piece. Otherwise, great product! Especially good for car rides - didn't realize how every bump would make me feel like a bowl full of (painful) jelly!
Just had my 3rd cesarean and I wish I had this with my first 2! They gave me a binder in the hospital and I tried it on for comparison. This one is made with better materials, gives better support, and is much more comfortable. It’s worth every penny! With my previous cesareans, I was so incredibly sore and was barely able to walk. But this time, I’m astounded at how much more mobile I can be and how much less pain I’m in. It’s only been 3 days, but if anyone is thinking about getting this, do yourself a favor and do it!
