Ask Belle: What is the difference between the Dual-Closure and the Corset?
Both the Corset and Dual-Closure are Bellefit’s most popular styles since they can be used after either childbirth delivery method and offer the most adjustment options,.
Making them ideal for all body types:
Similarities Between Bellefit Dual Closure and Bellefit Corset
The Dual-Closure and the Corset are both adjustable and have two rows of front hook and eye closures that are separated by an inch apart.They can be adjusted so as time goes by, you can tighten (or loosen) your girdle when slightly more or less compression is needed.
They both also have a groin closure that allows you to easily use the restroom, change your underwear and/or your pads without having to remove the girdle each time.
The main difference between the Girdle and the Corset is that the Dual-Closure (also known as a Double Corset) has the side zipper closure as well.
Underneath the zipper are two sets of adjustable hook and eye closures (one near the top and one near the bottom).
Benefits of Both Girdles
Because it has both closure options, the Dual-Closure is able to be adjusted the most out of all of the other styles. Many moms like having the option of both closures in one girdle to also be able to choose which method is more convenient for them throughout their recovery.
For example, in the beginning when your swelling is at its peak, you may find that it is easier for you to use just the front closure. Once you get a little farther along you may find that just using the zipper closure is more convenient for you.
When deciding between the Dual Closure Girdle vs the Corset, keep in mind that the Corset is an excellent option but the higher adjustability level of the Dual-Closure offers more customizable options and gives you that slight edge over the other styles when you need it the most. You can also try wearing the thong girdle when you want to get a rest from wearing the corset of dual-closure.
