The Girdle Pull-up is the only girdle not recommended for recovery after of a c-section. The Pull-up does not have any hooks or zippers besides the hook and eye closures on the crotch area and is a better option for women that are having a vaginal birth and would like this basic and efficient design. If you are having a c-section we recommend the Bellefit Corset or the Dual-Closure for your postpartum recovery.

I Dont Know if I Will Have a C-Section or Natural Birth. Which Bellefit Girdle Do I Choose?
All four Bellefit girdle designs provide the same benefits; the only difference is the closure method of the girdles. We recommend purchasing a Dual-Closure Girdle if your delivery method is uncertain. The Bellefit Corset is also recommended if your delivery method is uncertain.
What is the Difference between the Four Bellefit Girdles?
All four styles of Bellefit Girdles offer the same great level of Medical-Grade compression and are designed with the medical-grade fabric panels. The main difference will be the closure method which are explained below.
Dual-Closure Girdle: The Bellefit Dual-Closure Girdle can be worn after a C-section or Natural birth. The Dual-closure girdle has 2 rows of hook-and-eye closures in the front and a lateral zipper. This girdle is preferred by women seeking the highest level of flexibility and adjustability throughout the postpartum recovery process.
Corset: The Bellefit Corset gives you Medical-Grade Compression during Post Pregnancy recovery after natural or C-section childbirth. The Bellefit Corset has 2 rows of hook-and-eye closures in the front that can be adjusted so you can tighten your girdle when additional compression is needed.
Girdle with Zipper: The Girdle with Zipper has a lateral zipper and is adjustable so you can tighten your girdle when additional compression is needed. This design is good for Moms that are planning a natural birth but a c-section is still possible. The C-Section Incision must’ve healed for this Girdle to be worn comfortably
Girdle Pull-up: The Girdle Pull-up has a simple and traditional design with no closures, except for the groin area flap. This style is ideal for Moms that have had a vaginal childbirth and would like this basic and efficient design. The Pull-Up is not recommended for c-section recovery.

What’s the difference between a Postpartum Girdle and an Abdominal Binder?
Girdles provide all-around coverage of your core, rear-end and groin área to support your lower abdomen.
Girdles compress front-to-back and around the core to provide support of your groin and hold heavy flow pads in place.
Girdles must be worn with underwear. They are designed with a convenient access flap so you can use the restroom, change your pads, etc.
Girdles are designed to be easier for you to put on after giving birth.
Girdles can be worn day & night.
Binders cover your mid-core. They are designed to reduce your waist and give you an hourglass effect.
Binders don’t support the postpartum lower abdomen area as well as Girdles.
Binders don’t support the c-section incision.
Bellefit Binders are made with triple-layered fabrics which makes them fit firmly around the waist.
Binders are not recommended to wear right after giving birth.
Binders are recommended for daytime use only.
Which Bellefit Style is best for C-section?
Both the Bellefit Dual-Closure Girdle and the Bellefit Corset are excellent for recovery after a C-section and accommodate both vertical and horizontal incisions. These two styles are recommended due to their flexibility in closure methods and adjustability which make wearing a Girdle/Corset after a C-section safe and comfortable.
The Bellefit Girdle with Zipper is only recommended when your C-section incision is already completely healed.
Which Bellefit Style is best for Natural Birth?
All four styles are excellent for recovery after a Natural Birth, the main difference will be your preference in the Girdle closure method. Your body shape will also be important in determining the best style for you.
