Bellefit Postpartum Girdles
If you want to know which postpartum girdle is best, Bellefit ® is an option that provides comfort and support. The after birth girdle selection featured here is constructed with care and meant to provide an excellent experience for the women who choose to buy a belly wrap and waist trainer. Perfect for c-section recovery as well as compression and lymphatic drainage, a csection recovery belt prevents symptoms from worsening by promoting healing in a well-constructed and supportive garment that can be worn after pregnancy.
The C-Section Recovery Option You Hoped For
Will a girdle help after pregnancy? The answer is “Yes, tremendously.” If you want to protect and support the incision you received as a result of your c-section, a corset for postpartum helps. It prevents sutures from breaking, the wound from eviscerating, and the c-section incision from becoming irritated or infected due to the change in movement that has suddenly occurred. It’s the undergarment that has helped women recover from surgery safely, effectively, and efficiently for years.
Diminishing Diastasis Recti with Postpartum Girdles
Abdominal muscle separation, known as Diastasis Recti, is remedied in two ways. The first is through basic abdominal exercises that can be done daily. The second is by wearing an after pregnancy girdle. Both provide adequate support for women who plan to lift and carry their child and other objects after giving birth. The combination of exercise and a Bellefit ® postpartum girdle gives women the core strength needed to prevent injuries from happening.
What to Expect After Childbirth
It’s very common for women to experience swelling after childbirth. This occurs for a variety of reasons including reactions to medications, water retention or hormonal changes. Whichever the reason may be, be sure to stay hydrated rest when possible and consult with your doctor if you feel any pain or are concerned about the swelling.
When your baby is born, the space that he or she filled inside your womb will need some time to shrink back down; this will leave your abdomen softer and more jiggly than you are used to. It is perfectly normal and it will get better.
Emotions can be a bit challenging to understand and keep under control after you have a baby. Hormones continue to take charge of everything your body is going through and it’s perfectly normal to experience emotional highs and lows. Be patient with yourself and know that you are not alone in this and that everything will get easier with each day that you continue to bond with your baby.
Postpartum Bleeding and Menstruation
Say hello to your long lost feeling of menstruation. For the first week (sometimes weeks) after giving birth, you will experience postpartum bleeding which is normal. Your body will naturally cleanse your uterus of its baby making experience. This will of course be accompanied by the usual cramping. Try to have lots of heavy flow pads ready to go so you don’t run out. Also talk to your doctor about options to help with any pain and if you experience a flow that seems heavier than normal.
Postpartum women are able to recover faster after giving birth by wearing the special undergarment.

Choose from the Dual Closure Girdle, Bellefit Corset, Corset Thong, Girdle with Side Zipper, and Girdle Pull-Up. Each has specific features that maximize comfort and provide accessibility without the need to be removed.

We recommend that you begin wearing your girdle the day that you are discharged from the hospital. This is typically 3-5 days after delivering your baby. We also advise you to consult with your Doctor since every pregnancy and recovery is unique.
A postpartum girdle is a compression garment that a mother wears tightly around the belly following the delivery of her baby. The garment should fit quite snugly around the abdomen to maximize the benefits of compression, such as increasing blood flow, improve posture, and support the abdominal muscles — but it shouldn't be so tight that it restricts movement and breathing.
Depending on style girdle you have, either unhook/unzip the front or side closure and hook the groin flap closure. Sit down on the edge of your bed & step into the girdle one foot at a time. Stand to pull up girdle as far as you can. Lie on your back to fasten the hooks/zipper on front closure. Stand up, center the front panel and adjust until comfortable.
It's optimal to begin wearing Bellefit right after birth, however you will still see results if you begin to wear your girdle any time during the first year after delivery.
To accurately choose your postpartum girdle size, you need to consider your pregnancy weight gain and hip size, between other measurements.
Since these measurements change as your due date approaches, we strongly suggest choosing your postpartum size close to your due date (at least at your 36th weeks of pregnancy if you’re expecting a full-term pregnancy) or at least 2-3 weeks prior to your due date.
To achieve the best results, wear your Bellefit continuously (12-24 hrs) during your daily activities for a minimum period of one week. After the initial week you may take it off during the night and continue to wear your garment for the remaining 120 days, or as long as you feel comfortable.
Yes you can, many moms like to wear the Bellefit while sleeping, especially after a c-section to help get out of bed easier and move around. Also check with your doctor before to make sure its right for you.
