Bellefit postpartum girdle review by Helen-K
When I was pregnant I looked online for reviews of different postpartum girdles, as I knew it was important to have abdominal and back support after delivery. I decided to try Bellefit. I'm 5'3 and I was 117lbs before pregnancy. I bought the corset size small, as recommended by the sizing chart of Bellefit. My weight before delivery was 152lb (I gained 35lb) when the pregnant picture was taken. Immediately after natural birth I was 142lb. I took the postpartum picture of my belly and then I tried to put the girdle on, but it didn’t fit at all. I think maybe a size medium would fit better, but I couldn’t afford it. 5 days after delivery I tried again and with the help of my husband I was able to put it on, but it was extremely tight in the larger row of front hooks. I had to use the extensor for the groin area because I couldn’t pull it up completely. I started using it day and night. I didn’t like that it creates a back fat roll at the top of where the corset starts. Sometimes it feels a little uncomfortable in the groin and butt area, I wish it didn’t had a closure there, but sometimes I just leave it open.
All I can say is that Bellefit corset definitely improved my posture and reduced my back pain, while compressing my abdomen. I am very happy that my abdomen is as flat as before pregnancy. I definitely recommend Bellefit and I will use it again after future pregnancies. The after photo was 4 weeks postpartum (3 weeks using the corset).
5 days after I started using the corset, I could adjust it to the smaller row of hooks. It is unbelievable how in 10 days my abdomen is flat.
