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 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.

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.

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

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.
mtj323 – 08/20/2018
Love the way it fix
dinadawnbrown (verified owner) – 08/22/2018
Bought the bundle with the two dual closure corsets in M and L, had to send the M back and order the XL, which fits. The large rolls down, but think that it because it is still too small for me and will use the XL for now and try the large again in the future. The ribbing on the corset bothered me at first but after wearing mine for a few days, I don’t seem to notice it as much.
nadyal (verified owner) – 08/24/2018
The fit was too large (XXL) but I did not return it as a waste of shipping fee. However the material is good. Repurchasing (L)another to see how it goes.
Brittney A (verified owner) – 08/26/2018
Great girdle for c-section moms. Plenty of support for your back and incision area, easy to adjust and snap. Love it!
flores.crystal1004 (verified owner) – 08/27/2018
First time bellefit user with my second baby. I wish I knew of this girdle with my first that’s how good it is!!!
conn.tiffany (verified owner) – 08/28/2018
As a fifth time mom and first time Bellefit user, I can’t believe the difference the Corset has made in my recovery! I can move so much more freely and get up and down, while holding the baby, with ease. As one who over – heats easily, it was one of my biggest concerns while wearing it. But, it’s comfortable and hasn’t made me heat up.
nayelli_london (verified owner) – 08/29/2018
As a first time mom, I was amazed to see how my pregnant belly shrank to almost reach my pre-pregnancy shape within a matter of 2 weeks! The Bellefit’s compression not only helped me start to get my pre-pregnancy shape back, but it helped do so in a really comfortable way. I was *almost at my pre-pregnancy size within a matter of 2 weeks (*I am getting another corset in a smaller size to get back to my original size). Of course every body is different, but this has worked wonders for me.
flores.rosanab (verified owner) – 08/31/2018
My Bellefit corset is everything I expected and more. At just 2 weeks postpartum, I have lost half the weight I gained during my pregnancy. The girdle helps keep everything together and makes me feel more confident. It’s very comfortable and not noticeable under my clothes. I highly recommend this product!
smlcarrillo – 09/04/2018
So happy to find Bellefit!!! This was my 5th pregnancy, and as I gained 58 lbs this time… I was afraid to see how my belly was going to survive post partum. I started wearing the medium pull up style corset at 3 wks post delivery ( around 155lbs at this point), it was tight, but comfortable and very supportive around belly and lower back area. At around 9 wks I was wearing size small corset, and fit into a friend’s xs zip up style corset and waiting for my own to be shipped. People were amazed at how smooth and flat my belly looked when I was wearing one, and I told everyone “it’s Bellefit!!! ” All my new momma friends are getting one after I showed them how comfy and slimming they are. Hey, I know they don’t cause weight loss on their own, but I can feel confidant and more like my self during the process of getting in shape. One thing that was significant from my past 4 pregnancies, was how smooth and more taught my belly skin is as its shrinking where previously, there was looser skin. I’ts become like my second skin—-I’ll wear one until my pre pregnancy size (127lbs) , hopefully not forever!!!!!! lol:)
Claudiarod55 (verified owner) – 09/04/2018
Definitely love this company! I bought my first girdle 1 month later after having my baby through a c-section. Wish I knew about this sooner because the results are amazing. I was still swelling before this, and once I kept using it as suggested, I saw results. Customer service is super friendly and helpful. Girdles run small, so contact them for help 🙂 P.S. Make sure to get cleared from your doctor first!
alvaradohilda93 (verified owner) – 09/07/2018
Love my corset . I’m a petite size gain 35 pounds during my pregnancy. Order a S wasn’t able to fit in it until 5 days after coming home . Now I’m 2 weeks postpartum and I’m already order a xs.

Awesome for postpartum. Hides that belly pooch and allows clothes to fit better!

I love this product! It’s comfortable and effective. So glad my friend Nancy recommended it to me. She guarenteed results. Real friends tell their friends about Bellefit. 😉

Fit Somewhat Large
I received the girdle and didn’t try on until 5 days after delivery. The compression feels good but I already need a smaller size. I called customer service and they were extremely helpful in guiding me to the right size. They even had me text them a picture while on the phone to see if the girdle fit correctly. I can’t wait for my new size and a chance to wear!

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.
