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.

I’m so happy with my corset! It’s helped so much in speeding up my recovery from my pregnancy and delivery. To make that even better, the customer service department goes above and beyond! I have never had a better customer service experience!

This corset is really snug and doesn’t roll off whatever activity I do on daily basis. I just started this couple weeks ago when I was 7 months post partum. I wished I had known about this while I was still pregnant so that I have worn this right after delivery just what like what they say in the description. I can say this is very effective, in a small amount of time, I can now fit in my pre pregnancy jeans. I wear it all day and take it off when I go to bed. I highly recommend it.
Sarah (verified owner) – 07/09/2016
I tried another belly binder with my first baby and it was so bulky and uncomfortable that I hardly wore it enought to be effective. This time I wanted something that would actually work for me and be discreet under my clothes so I chose Bellefit. It gives me so much self confidence to feel so pulled together. I’m not losing the baby weight as fast as I’d hoped but I feel like I look pretty good anyway and the weight will come off in time.
Janice Valiente – 07/20/2016
I am so glad I bought this! Wish I knew about this with my first two c sections. I wasn’t able to wear it right after being discharged from the hospital but I did start wearing it 3 weeks after my 3rd csection and I am already seeing results. I’m on the second set of notches already and def will be considering ordering the next size down so I can see continuing results !
Andy (verified owner) – 07/26/2016
I started wearing the Bellefit corset after the staples on my incision were removed. I like how it gives me support on my daily activities. I wear it all day. It’s worth every penny.
M Capp – 08/04/2016
I wish i had bought this after I had my babies, thats 2yrs ago. I figured I would try it to help with my diastasis recti issues. I use it while working out and I have seen a BIG difference in my core muscles and my posture. I would definitely recommend to others!! Its a Must Have for Post pregnancy.
Oderay Marc – 08/04/2016
I had c-sec and my 9-months weight was 200lbs at 5’7 height. I started to wear corset size M 2 weeks after delivery and saw results after 5 days. I wish I bought it before delivery. It helps with the back pain and posture, as well as after surgery pain that I could walk easily. I am 171 lbs 6 weeks postpartum, no belly hanging and about to order size S. I highly recommend this corset to everyone after baby as it helps with pain management as general ability to walk freely, to get up or to sneeze. I think in 2 months i can wear my bathing suit with no fear of hanging abs.
Theresa – 08/07/2016
I know the item is made to be snug but the boning was too tight for me.
Ania (verified owner) – 08/12/2016
This item came highly recommended and disappointed me. Not only the international delivery was almost as expensive as the corset itself, which put me off at the start but also the part that is btw the legs is too wide and sides are scratching my thighs so it’s difficult or impossible to walk. Also it would be better if that part was not hooks and eye as it’s difficult to close and open. The reinforcing little bars on the side (top) are irritating my ribs and to of abdominal cavity. After some days the corset has stretched and is less effective now – although the concept itself is great.
Sushma (verified owner) – 08/24/2016
I was almost 6 weeks postpartum awhen one day a facebook ad for bellefit caught my attention. At that time, I was beginning to get a back ache and decided to try Bellefit. By far, the best decision I have made. My back ache disappeared when I started using it and I felt like I rediscovered myself. I was worried if the corset would be comfortable, but believe it is now a part of me and at 3.5 months postpartum, I have lost about 20 pounds and can’t be anymore happier.I have been talking to all my pregnant friends to try bellefit and enjoy the benefits it has to offer.
Lindsey (verified owner) – 08/25/2016
I decided after my first child that I needed help with closing the abdominal gap. I did my research and was worried that even though this corset didn’t have straps(to keep it from rolling down on my hourglasse figure) it was my best bet. Boy was I surprised! I love it! It has boning in place to keep it from rolling down. My clothes are not really tight so it goes undetected which I love! A+ this is a must for mothers!
ankita – 09/01/2016
I ordered the large but it didnt fit. I wish I ordered the x-large. I was super excited about this.
Cassidy – 09/06/2016
This is such a well made support garment – in the weeks that I have been wearing it, it has never started to sag or “stretch out” , so the support feels as good today as it did on day one. I wondered about the cost but I feel it has absolutely been worth it. I could barely close all of the hook and eye closures when I first put it on but only a few days later, I noticed it was easier to close. I feel like the girdle holds everything back in place and it translates to better healing and greater confidence in the interim. Highly recommend.
Desiree (verified owner) – 09/16/2016
I am not 6 weeks postpartum and have just started using my corset. The first time I put it on I felt wonderful and was able to get back into my pre pregnancy jeans! I am egerly awaiting the long term results!

Fit Fit as Expected
I started to wear the corset 5 days after delivery. After 3 days of wearing I have notice a small 2 cm hole on side. Bellefit replaced it and it fit me perfect. I do not have any issue to close the corset.
Maribel – 11/03/2016
I was a bit skeptical to try this girdle out as all others had failed but I’m glad I got it. It serves it’s purpose in keeping everything tucked in and excellent support of my c-section. Definitely recommend using it. The only con is that the metal bar below the breast area can get uncomfortable but nothing a tank top underneath won’t fix.
Tanya H – 11/03/2016
I definitely recommend this product! I didn’t start wearing my corset until two and a half postpartum due to a uterine reputre during delivery. My stomach has went down a lot, and the gap in my abs have almost completely closed. The only reason I’m not giving it a 5 star is because of the sharp pieces that stab me in the back. I love the corset, I just wish it was more comfortable.
Anna S (verified owner) – 11/08/2016
Rapture Part 2. earlier last month I published the comment that I am not happy with quality of the product . I have sent an official complain which was resolved without any delay. I am very happy that I received such a great help. Beside replacement at no charge I will receive new extenders for my belt . During the call with customer care I was advice how to properly wear the product. I was not aware that I should wear it as high as possible. This comment of Jaimie was very helpful. Even thought I have not good experience at the beginning I have to say that the corset is really working. I lost within 10 days 21 pounds (no cola,pizza, pasta or hamburgers:)The corset is really helping my belly to go back to the right shape. I was not exercising during the pregnancy. I had vaginal delivery. I was really afraid that my stomach will be flabby , but thanks to the belt is getting on the right truck. Thank you for the amazing product and outstanding customer care.

Fit Too Small
My exchange took longer than expected.
Misho – 12/04/2016
I bought the corset in size large but it was tight and the hooks broke. They replaced it for me but I was already disappointed.
Karen Nascimento – 12/05/2016
I’ve had my corset for about a month now and I’ve been wearing it regularly because it really helps with my incision. My baby was premie and I had a c-section delivery 45 days ago and started using the girdle two weeks after delivery. It is so helpful to have the extra support and the confidence that the girdle brings. Not to mention that my incision area still bothers me a lot and whenever I’m using the girdle I feel like I can function much better. I just wish that my size small girdle had another level of tightness. This one is starting to feel loose already.
jaclynmo4 – 12/12/2016
I am about 5 weeks postpartum. A friend recommended this product to me. I just received it recently. So far I am very satisfied. I was extremely pleased with customer service who helped me get the right size.
Melissa H (verified owner) – 12/20/2016
Not only is the product itself amazing, but the customer service excels anything I could’ve asked for. I ordered the wrong size and they were sooo so helpful in getting the old one returned and the better size ordered. They had amazing response times and didn’t rush off the phone, they made sure every single question I had was answered. The corset itself is very sturdy and made to last! It makes getting around after a csection so much easier and makes you feel better in clothes! I wish I would’ve known about Bellefit with my first two pregnancies. I will definitely be ordering again if we have another!
Giselle Steinhausen (verified owner) – 12/22/2016
This is by far the most amazing product I’ve purchased . I gained 80lbs in each of my pregnancies . When I had my son it took me 6 months to get my body back . After my second c-section my Dr. suggested a girdle . I did my research and decided to purchased the size L Bellefit Corset. Within two weeks I was ready for a smaller size! I then purchased the size M Bellefit and my stomach has continued to tighten up towards my pre-pregnancy size. Looking to fit into the size S and XS soon. I’d like to share how Bellefit has transformed my body in only 6 weeks . I recommend this product for any pregnant women out there! What an amazing product and company. Giselle
Monique K – 12/26/2016
I had an AMAZING experience with this girdle after birth and i am NOT being paid to say it! I heard of this brand way before i was ever pregnant so i prepared to purchase this as soon as i was and made sure i could afford it at 36 weeks pregnant. when i got it in the mail, i honesly scoffed and laugh thinking, there is NOOO way i’m going to fit into this thing after birth. but the day i came home from the hospital after a vaginal delivery, i had my husband help me squeeze into it. it was rough since my stomach still was as large as a sack of potatoes. i wore it all the time for a few weeks except for taking a shower. it was intense getting back into it and still needed help for about a week. but sure enough, 2 weeks of wearing it and my stomach shrank back to its original size and people were shocked how fast my body bounced back. and it became easier to get back on myself after showers. i finally got to a point of only wearing it during the day. truthfully i should have gotten one size bigger and then transitioned to the medium, just to make it easier on myself, but overall i had a good experience. i recommend it. the price may be a bit high, but i was looking and feeling like myself much sooner than my other postpartum friends, that’s for sure!

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.
Wearing Bellefit is beneficial for women during any stage of their recovery journey after giving birth. Depending on where you are in your journey, you can choose a postpartum girdle or an abdominal binder. This handy guide will help you choose the ideal style for you.
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.
Ab Binders cover your mid-core. They are designed to reduce your waist and give you an hourglass effect. Ab Binders don’t support the postpartum lower abdomen area as well as Girdles. Ab Binders don’t support the c-section incision. Bellefit Binders are made with triple-layered fabrics which makes them fit firmly around the waist. Ab Binders are not recommended to wear right after giving birth. Ab Binders are recommended for daytime use only.
Girdles are best for wearing after giving birth, especially after a c-section. Ab Binders are recommended 15-20 days after giving birth. This varies based on your unique recovery.
Ab Binders are designed with three layers of compression fabrics. This gives them a firm and smoothing fit around the waist.
Bellefit girdles have a reinforced front panel that reaches down to the lower abdomen designed to support the post-baby pooch.
Both the Girdle and Binder are effective within their purpose. Girdles are designed to support the postpartum belly, help reduce swelling and reduce after-birth pains. Binders are designed to instantly reduce inches off your waistline and give you a more visible hourglass figure.
Abdominal Binders can be slid up or down your core to give you proper coverage if you have a long torso. Girdles can be slightly customized to add or remove length by adjusting the settings on the groin closure flap. For additional length all girdles come with a free attachable extender.
The styles which are most adjustable are the: Any Corset has 2-3 rows of hook & eye closures and an adjustable groin flap. These features allow you to tighten or loosen the girdle for a customized fit. Dual-Closure Girdles have 2-3 rows of hook & eye closures, a side zipper closure and an adjustable groin flap. These features allow you to tighten or loosen the girdle for a customized fit. Abdominal Binder Corset is very adjustable with 3 rows of hook-and-eye closures. It can be slid up or down to find your most comfortable coverage.
ALL GIRDLES will give you results if you wear them within the first year after giving birth. Binders can be worn during any lifestage, so if it’s been over a year since giving birth, Abdominal Binders are the right solution for shaping, waist reduction and an hourglass waist effect.
ALL GIRDLES can be worn after giving birth when you are discharged from the hospital. Wearing ANY GIRDLE day & night will provide great ‘snapback’ results if worn within a year after giving birth. Binders are a great companion item to the Girdles when you want to shape your waistline and wear your favorite outfits.
There are two Girdle Styles designed to be safer for recovery after Hysterectomy or abdominal surgery: Corset Dual-Closure Girdle.
If you’re not recently postpartum or have never been pregnant, Abdominal Binders are the right solution for shaping, waist reduction and an hourglass waist effect.
ALL GIRDLES can be worn for recovery of Diastasis Recti. Girdles are designed to be easier to put on after giving birth. Abdominal muscles affected by Diastasis are weak. Binders have very firm compression and can be more challenging to put on if you have diastasis.
