How to Find Your Size:

  1. Find your current weight & hip range on the chart.
  2. If less than 36 weeks, add 1 Lb for each remaining week of pregnancy. 1 week = 1 Lb.
  3. Your ideal size will be based on your approximate weight at the end of your pregnancy.
  1. Find your current weight & hip range on the chart
  2. Your ideal size will be based mainly on your current weight.

My weight, hips and pre-pregnancy jean size don’t match on one size, how do I choose my size?

  • If none of your measurements match, then choose your size based on your current weight.
  • If pregnant, make sure you add 1 Lb/ week to your final weight to select the correct size.

Why is the chart saying I need a bigger size than I wear in my regular clothing?

  • Bellefit Girdles are made with strong compression and our sizing runs small. Our sizes are NOT the same as your regular clothing or underwear. If you are normally a size Medium, you most likely won’t be a size Medium in Bellefit.

Do I choose my size based on the weight I want to be?

  • No. You must choose a size based on the weight you are NOW. This is the only way to make sure your girdle fits you well after giving birth. If pregnant, make sure you add 1 Lb/ week to your final weight to select the correct size.

I’m really tall, should I size down?

  • If you are tall (5’9” +) it’s possible that you can choose 1 size smaller than the suggested size. To be sure, call or message us for sizing help.

I gained more than 30 Lb during pregnancy, how do I choose my size?

  • Choose your size based on the weight you are NOW. You may need more than 1 size to complete your recovery. If you purchase a bundle select 1 size based on your current weight and 1 size smaller for later on.

Should I choose my size based on my pre-pregnancy jean size?

  • No. Choosing your size based on your jean size only will give you the wrong Girdle size. The most important measurement to choose a size is your weight. Refer to “How to Find Your Size if You’re Pregnant/Postpartum”
