Doctors recommend Bellefit compression girdles and corsets for the treatment of these medical conditions which are most commonly experienced by women after childbirth.
The rectus abdominis muscles are found on the abdomen and are commonly referred to as the abs or “6 pack” muscles. There is a small band of tissue, called the linea alba, that connects the right and left side of the rectus abdominis muscles and is located at the midline of the body. Diastasis recti is a condition in which there is a weakening of the linea alba allowing for an abnormally large separation between the rectus abdominis muscles. This widening of the linea alba allows for bulging of the abdomen and an appearance of still appearing pregnant after delivery.
A hernia is the result of an organ or tissue protruding through an opening in the muscles. While a hernia can occur in many areas of the body, they most commonly develop in the abdominal and groin areas during pregnancy. Developing a hernia during the course of your pregnancy is not always an immediate concern; in fact, most physicians recommend waiting until after you give birth to have the hernia treated. However, hernias rarely, if ever, go away on their own and must eventually be treated. Left untreated, a hernia will progressively worsen in severity and eventually become more serious can eventually lead to life-altering complications.
Back pain, especially in the lumbar or sacral regions, is a common condition experienced during pregnancy. In fact, nearly 1 out of every 2 pregnant women can expect to experience acute or chronic pain the in lumbar or sacral regions of the spine. The pain in these areas is typically temporary and a direct result of pregnancy-induced weight gain and hormonal changes, and often contributes to pain, sleep-disturbances, and other discomforts experienced during the course of the pregnancy.
Hip pain can be debilitating — especially when you are tasked with carrying a baby. The extra pressure and strain on your joints causes hip pain that pregnant women often misdiagnose and neglect to seek treatment for. Hip pain comes from various sources during pregnancy. Most women start to develop the joint pain during the second trimester, right as you start to develop a “baby bump.” The change in your walking style, the loosening of your ligaments holding together the sacroiliac joints, and sleeping on your side later in pregnancy all can add to hip pain. Another cause is pressure on your sciatic nerve, formally called Sciatica. Sciatica can cause pain, numbness, and/or tingling in the buttocks, hips, and thigh. This is where appointments with your physician are especially useful, as Sciatica can lead to serious complications.
Subluxation of symphysis is also known as symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD). This is a condition that causes excessive movement of the pubic symphysis. The symphysis is a midline, nonsynovial joint that connects the right and left superior pubic ram. Because of the misalignment of the pelvis, pain is associated with this diagnosis. Basically, this joint holds the right and left sides of the pelvic muscles together. When this joint becomes soft, pelvic muscles and bones move more freely. With the weight of a growing baby, this can become a painful condition.
The perineum is the tissue that is located between the vagina and the anus. There are layers to the tissue being skin, subcutaneous tissue, and the pelvic floor muscles. The pelvic floor muscles are important muscles in regards to the passing of stool and urine. During vaginal delivery, the perineal tissue is stretched with the passing of the baby, mainly the head and shoulders, which can lead to tears of the perineal tissue. There are different grades ranging from 1 to 4 of perineal lacerations. Grades 1 and 2 are most common. Grades 3 and 4 are more severe with tearing of muscles and the anal sphincter. An episiotomy is an intentional perineal laceration made by the physician at the time of delivery. This was performed routinely some number of years ago, but is no long a routine procedure. Episiotomies are usually performed if there is concern for grade 3 or 4 perineal laceration or if there is concern to deliver the baby quickly.
The uterus is held in place by pelvic ligaments and muscles. The muscles can become weak or stretched out leading to a lack of support for the uterus. When the muscles become weak, the uterus may sag or descend from its normal position into the vagina. A uterovaginal prolapse is classified by its stage. A complete prolapse means part of the uterus has slipped so far that it protrudes from the vaginal opening. The difference with an incomplete uterovaginal prolapse is that the uterus becomes partially displaced into the vagina, but it does not protrude out.
The pelvic region of the body is the lowest part of the abdomen between the hip bones. The perineum in women refers to the area between the vagina and anus. Pelvic and perineal pain involves discomfort in either or both areas. Because the pelvic area and perineum are located near various organs, nerves, and muscles, pelvic and perineal pain is very common in women. The pain may come and go or be constant. The quality of the pain may vary based on the cause. The pain may be sharp, burn, or ache. Depending on the cause of the pain, symptoms may worsen when you move or use the bathroom.
Lower abdominal, inguinal, and groin pain is experienced due to the stretching of ligaments around the womb. As the womb becomes larger to accommodate the baby, the ligaments that hold the uterus in place must stretch. A certain ligament known as the round ligament is the culprit of your pain. This ligament attaches the front portion of the uterus to the groin. Normally, this ligament contracts and relaxes slowly when you sneeze, cough, or make rapid movements. During pregnancy everything speeds up and more weight is applied to the ligament. Due to the enlarging of the uterus during pregnancy, the round ligament is stretched and contracts more quickly, therefore causing pain.

Fit Fit as Expected
I had my first c-section 13 years ago. I remember it being so uncomfortable and painful. I was very skeptical that the girdle would not hurt my incision and make me uncomfortable for my 2nd c-section.I read every review and watched review videos. I finally decided to order one. I have been so pleasantly surprised. I hurt less wearing the girdle than when I didn’t. I feel more put together and like my core is getting stronger. I ordered the large at first and it was too small. I didn’t return it because I knew eventually, I would need that size. I went ahead and ordered the XL. It came in 2 days and I was able to get it closed with the extender. I am now 4 weeks post partum and in a size medium. So worth the money, just to have some confidence in my body again.

I ordered my girdle 2 months prior to my due date. I followed the sizing guidelines. I have not been able to wear it as I have not given birth. I ordered early to be prepared. Hoping this is true to size. The quality of fabric is good and feels durable.

I didn’t have a postpartum compression girdle the first time around and once I heard about Bellefit I knew I wanted to try it. I am still pregnant, but I can tell from the material and the cozy fit around my legs that this is a great quality product. I measured myself and found that I was a 3XL, the biggest size they offer. When I got it I was 25 weeks so I just quickly tried it on and it fit very well now, which means as baby grows bigger and bigger so will my hips and abdomen. This size should do me well for the first month or so, and then I’ll probably size down. I will say, I contacted Bellefit through Instagram and they were prompt at answering my questions, because at 25 weeks and it fit with room I was worried I should buy the next size down and they reassured me that when baby comes if it is still too big they will do an exchange for me. That made me feel better about buying it earlier on.

amazing product – no compromise on quality. Forest made me feel and look better. Don’t go with cheap options from amazon, you will regret like I did. Corset is seamless and not seen under the clothing
dafoz44 (verified owner) – 03/01/2019
I started with a Large a week after delivery and ordered the Medium 2 weeks later. I see a significant improvement versus my last pregnancy (I didn’t use any type of girdle). It also helps me feel more confident in clothing! I’m 5’4 and 140lbs

I decided to give this a try for the recovery of my third csection in a 4 year period. I started wearing it about 4 days postpartum and i can honestly say it made a huge difference in my recovery. Not only did i feel secure and supported from my core but it helped tremendously with decreasing swelling. I feel I’ve recovered better and faster this time around, despite it being my third csection. Now at 4 weeks post partum I am ordering a smaller size because this one is too big already. As far as sizing goes, I went with the size chart based on my weight and it was very accurate.
monica.narvaez.rivas (verified owner) – 03/08/2019
100% recommended!! I bought it one week after giving birth and I regret that I didn’t buy it before!! It is really amazing and helps to get your body and confidence back. I bought the M and now I buying the S after 5 weeks postpartum
stephnicole86 (verified owner) – 03/08/2019
I love this product! I started out with a large and have now sized down to a medium. I think soon I’ll be into a small! I love this because it really helps me feel supported after child birth and smooths out my problems areas. I wear this every day it is so comfortable!
byrndi01 (verified owner) – 03/12/2019
I’m glad it holds me in while not squeezing too hard. It is comfortable to wear postpartum!
hannahvf64 (verified owner) – 03/22/2019
After just shy of a month of use, I’m ready for the next size down! Had I known about this girdle with my first….oh well! Will highly recommend to all my mama friends!

I love my bellefit! I put it on the night I left the hospital and it’s been helping my back so much with pain and support. Really recommend!
Euls711pure (verified owner) – 03/29/2019
I love this corset. What I hate about shapewear– if it’s a corset with boning, it’s too short, if it’s without boning– rides up into tight belt; if it’s underware– gives me UTI’s ,hard to put on, and pain to use a bathroom– pulling it on and off, while sweating… brrr. Now, I don’t have anything like this with Bellefit. I’m 265lb, bought 3xl and it’s perfect– fits so nice, and gives me feeling of confidence. And using a bathroom much easier than I expected. My only problem– boning digs in, but gets better after repositioning. I’ve been eyeing Bellefit for years, but it seemed impossibly expensive on Amazon. Thankfully, I checked this website and they had a sale. Definitely will be buying more

Crystalsanchez43 (verified owner) – 03/30/2019

Absolutely Love my girdle. Would recommend to anyone!
kaileybrady26 (verified owner) – 04/05/2019
Definitely worth the money! Love this!! Within a week of wearing if I was back down to my prepgrancy body. Follow the size chart cause it’s right on. Prepregnancy I wore a size 3-4 and I bought a medium. And now I’m about to order a small.
sedavis09 (verified owner) – 04/05/2019
Purchased for recovery from my 2nd C-section. It has made such a huge difference helping hold things in and has made recovery easier. I’ll be purchasing a smaller size soon. It’s comfortable enough to wear all day and I wish I had this the first time around. It’s sooo much better than the ones the hospital gives you.
Carranda (verified owner) – 04/06/2019
I didn’t wear my corset right after delivery but even when I did start wearing it, I saw results immediately. I started with a large and wore it for about 2 1/2 to 3 weeks. I’m already ready for the medium now. It’s also more comfortable than I expected. Customer service was a great help in helping me pick the correct size.
stacyem221 (verified owner) – 04/08/2019
Product is very comfortable and breathable
Aunpichrachana (verified owner) – 04/08/2019
I am now 6 days postpartum fit with size S. Everything is ok, fit my belly but yet maybe I’m short the upper line of the croset hurt my waist a lil.
Cfiore13 (verified owner) – 04/10/2019
Love my girdle! It’s helped so much and it’s comfortable to wear! I wish I’d have heard of this with my first two pregnancies
Flannerykes (verified owner) – 04/11/2019
I started wearing this product after being home for one day and it was a game changer! I felt instant support and like I could manage recovery with a newborn and a toddler at home! I had a c section with my first and wish I knew about this product then! I have watched my uterus shrink so quickly this time and felt great support from the corset while breastfeeding. I take it off to shower and that’s it- because it’s so effective! I was 194 at the end and 146 when I got pregnant. I ordered a large and am very happy with the fit. The chart was very helpful in selecting this size. I recommend this to all of my girlfriends!
Morgan Sitton (verified owner) – 04/14/2019
I absolutely love these corsets and recommend them to everyone I know!
dcohen35 (verified owner) – 04/16/2019
I absolutely love using my corset to provide support for my postpartum tummy. However, I will say that the sizing chart is terrible! According to the sizing chart, with my pregnancy weight gain, I should have ordered an extra large. Therefore, I purchased a large corset just in case and an extra large. The large alone fit extremely big on me. The small would have been the best fit if I went by pre-pregnancy sizing. However, the weight gain and hip size information are misleading in helping determine the best sizing for postpartum bodies. Go by your pre-pregnancy jean size!

Begin wearing after birth on the day that you are discharged from the hospital. It’s optimal to begin wearing Bellefit right after birth; however, you will still see results if you begin to wear your girdle at any time during the first 6 months after the delivery.
Here’s why: 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 body’s natural process of recovery.
As a new mother, you likely have questions about what you can and cannot do after giving birth. There will be a period of rest and recovery following the birthing process that you’ll be recommended to take. So, how do you know if a postpartum girdle is right for you or not?
Among the many benefits that comes with wearing a postpartum girdle is how well it keeps things in place. With pregnancy weight being an issue for many women who have just given birth, a postpartum girdle helps compress the abdomen, giving you a seamless look that can be worn under dresses, skinny jeans, and sweatpants.It also provides extra support for the lower back which has a tendency to hurt whenever weight is gained.
Having a garment that keeps everything in place makes it easier for you to exhibit good posture and prevent muscle strain. That means that you won’t risk injuring yourself while you work to lose the extra weight you gained while pregnant.Bellefit products are designed to maximize comfort while providing support in all the right places. We offer a variety of styles of girdles to choose from, too, making it easy to find one that you love wearing.
The fact that your hips spread while pregnant to accommodate childbirth is quite the phenomenon. Your pelvis also makes room for the birthing process which may or may not include a vaginal delivery.
With the right corset or girdle, you’ll be able to narrow the distance between your hips and go back to looking like yourself once again.
As you work to lose the pregnancy weight, you’ll feel your hips and lower back being supported by the undergarment. Binding your hips in the eight weeks after giving birth helps pelvic joints go back to where they were prior to your pregnancy. That way, you won’t feel them being as spread-out as before.
A surge of hormones is something to be expected when pregnant. Don’t be concerned if your mood swings all over the place. It’s incredibly normal to feel the highest of highs and the lowest of lows.
You will get back to your normal self soon. Even if you don’t, you’ll start to feel better about your situation. If your feelings of sadness or depression don’t go away, it’s time to speak to a licensed therapist who can help you on a clinical level. Your issue is far more complicated than just needing some extra rest or help around the house.
Your hormones will eventually settle and you’ll feel more at ease in your body. Don’t be surprised if there is a transitional period from giving birth to getting back to your pre-pregnancy self. You’ve got time, and with Bellefit, you’ve got tools! Our postpartum girdles have helped women from around the world feel more confident about their bodies after delivering.
As a pregnant woman, you’re required to follow lots of advice. The following list provides valuable insight and advice on what not to do after giving birth to a child. By following it and the suggestions given to you by your physician, you decrease the chances delaying your recovery. – Strenuous Exercising – Caffeine – Alcohol – Junk Food – Certain Types of Fish
It’s important that you steer clear of these things until your body has had time to fully heal and that you’re no longer breastfeeding your child. That way, you’re not taking any chances on you or your baby’s health. Instead, you’re postponing some of the things you may really be looking forward to doing, eating or drinking.
The Corset is adjustable and has two rows of hook and eye closures in the front that are separated by an inch apart. As your body transforms after your delivery, you can adjust the setting when slightly more or less compression is needed.
This post-pregnancy corset also has a convenient crotch closure that allows you to use the restroom or change your underwear and pads comfortably without needing to take it off each time.
Yes! The front hook and eye closures of the Corset are designed with the incision in mind.
The Corset is not bulky and is flush with your skin; however because of the closure location, it may be slightly visible underneath certain fabrics or if you are wearing a fitted top. Keep in mind though that your comfort and healing process is the most important factor!
Yes! The Corset is an excellent option for either delivery method.
Yes! The Corset is recommended in the case of an abdominal surgery that may or may not be the result of a pregnancy.
Yes. There are two rows of the hook and eye closures that are separated by an inch apart so you can tighten your girdle when more or less compression is needed throughout your recovery.
Since the Corset is adjustable, it is suitable for all body shape types.
Begin wearing your Corset the day that you are discharged from the hospital or as soon as you are ready to wear it after the delivery. It’s optimal to begin wearing Bellefit right after birth; however, you will still see results if you begin to wear your girdle at any time during the first 6 months after the delivery. As always, consult with your physician to make sure the Corset is right for you since every recovery process is so unique.
