Highest Pregnancy Weight Highest weight during your pregnancy. This factor helps us determine if you will require two girdle sizes to complete your recovery process.
Current Weight Your weight now. If close to or more than 33lbs or 15kgs were gained during pregnancy, you will likely require 2 sizes to complete your recovery process. That is why we offer the bundles at a discounted rate.
Weeks Pregnant It is best to measure after week 36. Your hips widen as you approach your due date, so sizing can change.

Dual-closure The Dual-Closure Girdle Corset, also known as the "Double Corset", offers both side and front closure options in one girdle to give you the most flexibility and compression.

The Girdle with Zipper and the Corset are both adjustable and they have two rows of hook and eye closures that are separated by an inch apart. They can be adjusted so as time goes by, you can tighten your girdle when additional compression is needed.
The Dual-Closure offers both closure options in one girdle so it gives the most flexibility and compression.
The Pull-up does not have any hooks or zippers besides the hook and eye closures on the crotch area and is a good option for Moms that are having a vaginal birth and would like this basic and efficient design. Please keep in mind that the Pull-up is the only girdle not recommended in the case of a c-section.
Based on your entered measurements, we recommend a size that gives you immediate compression and support.
But when close to or more than 33lbs (15kgs, or 2.36 stone) are gained, we recommend going up one size for the initial stages of recovery. For this reason, some women will receive a sizing recommendation from the calculator that displays 2 sizes.
For example, your true measurements may put you at an X-Small size, but we'll recommend "X-Small and Small" if you have gained close to or more than 33lbs. After some time, will be able to drop down to the smaller size, but right when you ar discharged from the hospital, one size up will be best for you.
When ordering a bundle of two sizes, always try the smaller girdle first. The reason for this is that if the larger girdle is too loose, it will defeat the purpose of compressing your body and aiding in the recovery process. It is better to have a girdle that is a little snug than one that is too loose.
In the end, having two girdles of different sizes is a choice many women make in order to have optimal compression an support throughout their entire childbirth recovery process.
If you only wanted to order one, the we would recommend going with the smaller size with the understanding that initially it may be too snug to wear right after delivery.
