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 had diactissus (if that’s how you spell it :p) recti three finger gap after my first child! I tried so hard to bring my abs back together and after 2 years I was at a 2 finger gap…. then I got pregnant with my second I had heard about this with my first but thought it was a myth and didn’t want to spend the money…. for my second I decided to research it a bit more and decided to try it; because this was my last baby I decided to spend the money on it….. man! I put that on 3 days after birth not only did I feel more confident because I looked slimmer; but my back and stomach had so much support and within 2 months my abs were back together!! I don’t have diactissus recti!!! (1 ginger gap now!!!) I am so pleased and would recommend this to any mama who’s pregnant!! It’s just something that makes it take a little less effort on our part to get back to our postpartum body! And in order to get that flat stomach back your abs need to be back together properly! I didn’t do any physical activity to help it along the corset did all the work! Rate this product 5 stars!!! Absolutely love it! If your reading the reviews and was waiting for one to make you take the plunge this should be it!! Do it!!!

This girdle has been amazing during my postpartum time. It gives great support and helps aid in my body’s restoration process.

If you would like to recover your pre pregnancy body, this is it!
Sara Wise (verified owner) – 07/10/2018
I love my Bellefit girdle so much. I started wearing the week after delivery and it helped support my weakened core, improving both my posture and the fit of my clothing.
simplyalyss9 (verified owner) – 07/14/2018
So to be honest I contemplated and went back and forth on whether or not I should splurge on myself and get this girdle. Long story short I am so happy that my boyfriend encouraged it bc after my unexpected c-section this girdle is what made me feel like me again. Ladies it gives you the right amount of support, discrete under clothes and allowed me to make movements the hospital binder did not. A lot of what you go through after having a baby is mental and trust me a happy mommy that feels more like herself is worth every penny. For me it only took two days for results to show. I am saving up for the next size down and man does it feel good. I don’t often take the time to write my testimony but felt obliged to let those on the fence like me who read the reviews know. I support Bellefit 1000% and have already told all my fellow prego friends that this is a must not a maybe. DO it for yourself ladies YOU DESERVE IT!

Fit Somewhat Small
I wish I would’ve known about this corset sooner. I had a c-section, and this corset was strong enough to hold me in and support my abdomen, but also VERY comfortable! It also isn’t bulky and isn’t noticebale under regular clothes. I want to wear this forever. Seriously. Make sure you follow the size guide on the web site. I ordered a size up as recommended.
Yenidjeian (verified owner) – 07/23/2018
This is the best thing I ever bought. Had a c-section and as soon I got from the hospital I wore my bellfit girlde 24-7. In under a month I was half my size. I felt secure, stronger and less sore. Would recommend to everyone.
Steelcowgallery (verified owner) – 07/24/2018
I had a friend recommend a girdle after my emergency c section. This was my third birth but first c section so I was struggling. This girdle made me struggle a bit less and it is much easier picking up baby and not feeling so vulnerable after surgery. I would have had a much worse recovery without this product. Use the size helper though. They run small!

It gives the perfect support to my belly, i used a medium , moved on to a small and thinking of getting a xs now
Edn.rodriguez (verified owner) – 07/27/2018
I loved my girdle! The compression helps you feel put together. It provided awesome support for my belly and back. I HAD to wear it so I could get around easier with less pain. I had a c section and I didn’t start using it until 2 weeks pp. I wish I had used it sooner! It is comfortable to wear all day!I plan to buy the next size down soon.
Flaca2219canela (verified owner) – 07/29/2018
Love this product swelling was gone in 2 weeks csection incission was less painful
ja9r (verified owner) – 07/30/2018
I definitely recommend this product! I had a C-section. This was my 2nd C-section. My 1st I didn’t use anything and this time I saw a clear difference using the Bellefit. I started the day I got home. In less then 2 weeks I was already down from XXL to XL. Now 2 weeks later in already going to purchase a L! I’m already below my prepregnancy weight, but I only gained 15 pounds. My husband says I look so good and I feel so great. Even if you don’t get it for the weight loss, you should definitely get for the support it gives you. I BF also and it’s very comfortable.
Vrinceanu.sophia (verified owner) – 08/04/2018
I’m in love with this product because of its great results on a postpartum body: Reduces pregnancy-related excess weight. Supports and compresses your abdominal and lumbar regions. Improves and supports your posture and relieves back pain. Encourages a speedy recovery after childbirth. Strong support helps you increase your mobility. Helps support & recover your C-Section Incision. I will definitely, highly recommend this product!
chelsealang505 (verified owner) – 08/05/2018
The compression and the overall garment is fantastic! Coming from someone who works in cosmetic surgery and we use post op girdles a lot!
One thing though: I am petite! The girdle can be too high for someone like me who is petite. But I will say, I will be ordering more! I am still getting amazing results! Just need one a little shorter! And now one in a smaller size!
Morgan Sitton (verified owner) – 08/08/2018
As a first time mama, I had NO idea what to expect of postpartum life. I had no idea how the heck all of my inards would find their way back to their place on their own. This corset made me feel SO confident walking out of the hospital and I can’t believe how well it’s helped shape my belly back into place AND helped with my posture! Definitely a must try!
stephanie.r.lyle (verified owner) – 08/09/2018
I desperately want this to work but it’s a struggle to get on. It takes me like 10 mins just to get it on. Maybe cuz I’m overweight w a lot of loose skin and no abs but as I snap my way up the bottom snaps come undone so I have to start over! There’s like 3 snaps I can’t get to close so I use the extender. I also wish there was Velcro at the crotch instead of more snaps! It makes using the restroom kinda a pain especially at night. I should’ve gone with the side zipper closure corset but this was recommended on the “size finder” cuz I had a csection. Also the panty lines are horrendous , but not like I’m the epitome of sexy right now lol. It seems like a good quality product but since I’ve worn it a couple times I can’t exchange so I’m determined to make it work. If they had a thong zipper closure with Velcro at the crotch I’d be all over it when I downsize. Also, The boning digs into my ribs but so far it’s tolerable.
vanaehudson (verified owner) – 08/10/2018
I love my corset bellefit girdle. I put it on my last day in the hospital following my csection and it made a world of difference. I felt so secure and held in. I felt happy about the way I looked leaving the hospital
Briana kalajian (verified owner) – 08/10/2018
Buy one size up and pay attention to their sizing charts… I undersetimated my weight gain so I bought a second one in a larger size and plan on graduating to the smaller size. So far so good!
johanasandra2 (verified owner) – 08/13/2018
This girdle is amazing. I was searching in the internet for something that would not hurt my c-section scar and after reading such amazing reviews on this product and how great it is for those moms that have had cesareans I knew that I had to try it. I am 3 weeks pp and I am slowly but surely seeing results. I am so glad I gave this product a shot. You will not be disappointed.
Lindsayccc (verified owner) – 08/13/2018
I had C Section two and half months ago and started wearing Bellefit Girdle immediately after my wound healed completely. I wear it about 8 hours a day every day, and my belly has been super flat a little over one weeks use. Unlike most of the other shaplewear in the market, it is very tight and less stretchy. I usually take it off at night to get a break and put it back on after shower in the morning. It’s a little pricey compared to some other brands, but you DO get what you pay for.
tsuvi10 (verified owner) – 08/14/2018
I had a natural birth and started using the girdle 4 days after abs noticed a big difference. Lost excess water, extra back support. Love love the girdle. I ordered the next size.
eileen.legaspi (verified owner) – 08/17/2018
I had a different girdle with my first pregnancy and it was so uncomfortable. For this time around, I thought I would try Bellefit because it was highly recommended on several boards. I purchased 2 postpartum corsets and I’ve been so happy with them. They’re very comfortable, discrete under clothing, and allows for easy bathroom trips.

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.
