It’s optimal to begin wearing Bellefit right after birth, however still present after childbirth for up to 6 months are hormones secreted during pregnancy. These hormones, estrogen, progesterone and relaxin loosen the abdominal muscles, the pelvic structure and supporting ligaments and joints.
Bellefit works together with your natural process of recovery. The girdles act to retract the body by drawing in stretched muscles and provides medical-grade compression to your abdominal area.
We have heard great testimonies from Moms that began using Bellefit up to 8-10 months postpartum and were able to benefit greatly from its use. So, you will still see results if you begin to wear your girdle any time during the first year after delivery.
If you are past one year postpartum but still need abdominal support, we recommend one of our Abdominal Binders.
