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!!!

I had a c-section and immediately began wearing my corset (my husband had to help sinch me in but I still did). I can’t even explain how much the corset aided in my recovery! I didn’t even feel like my abdomen had just been sliced open and a child pulled out of it. I’m not joking. I could laugh, cough, climb stairs, hop out of bed, hold my baby everything without any pain at all! It was when I didn’t have it on (to shower) that I felt the reminder of what my body had been through. I slept in it and wore it 24/7, without it I was hurting. People kept asking me how I was doing, all with the look of concern like they expected me to say I’m hurting-nope, not with my corset on-my response was “I don’t see what the big deal is with c section recovery, it’s easy!” And that’s not me being a snob but being 100% serious, wear the corset and it will be like your baby was delivered by the stork and not out of your body! And it sure helps with shrinking the belly after!

I was hesitant to order the Bellefit corset because it was a little more money than I wanted to spend but I am so glad I did! I started wearing the corset 4 days after giving birth (via c-section) and immediately felt a huge difference! I was able to walk around with a lot less pain and I feel like I bounced back quicker than my past babies. I’ve been wearing the corset for almost 3 weeks and am already back in my pre pregnancy jeans! I plan on ordering the next size down in a couple weeks! I feel great and look great!

I bought my girdle a month and half after having my second baby and I wish I had bought it with my first baby and from the very beginning. It helped so much with my back ache and hips. I almost felt like myself again. They only thing I wish it was all the way up and with straps. It can create a bit of a bulge for me and I followed the size guideline.

The best postpartum girdle on the market !

I’ve used it before. It is a great fit and you can feel the support and compression from it.
dakiska – 06/23/2018
I really like how this girdle feels. Even though the quiz said I should get a large, I got a medium and it’s perfect. I am 5’3 120 pre pregnancy and gained 38 lbs during pregnancy.
Karis Underhill (verified owner) – 06/21/2018
It’s definitely going to be tight, that’s realization #1. I was recommended for an XL but after reading so many people needing to change to a lower size asap and I was so close to an L I bought the L instead and I’m glad I did because with breastfeeding and diet changes after delivery I have already rapidly lost weight and I was comfortable to start wearing the product on day 4 post delivery…I don’t think it’s necessary to wear it immediately anyway…and I’m already making progressing after one day to start to use the tighter connectors! I love seeing my body back in a more familiar shape and know that this is helping my body clear swelling fluids too and aid it in returning to “normal” or the new normal at least. I don’t wear it all day just a few hours since it can be a little uncomfortable to wear something so tight for so long but just the few hours at a time shows me nice results!
Talnyman08 (verified owner) – 06/20/2018
I had a repeat csection and developed nerve pain along my incision. The corset helped to relieve this pain as well as provide support and has helped me to get my shape back. I have been using the corset for 1 month and plan to order the next size down as I continue my recovery process. Advice:,use the sizing chart provided on the website!
bellababette (verified owner) – 06/19/2018
After my 4th c section this girdle helped hold everything in place which made less pulling on my c section incision and coughing and sneezing didn’t hurt anymore while I was healing. It also helped with standing up straighter which helped my back pains tremendously. I would recommend this to everyone who has had a c section.

janet.g.turner (verified owner) – 06/17/2018
The first one was so helpful and comfortable for my postpartum transition that I bought another one in a size down. I don’t slouch as much in it, and it helps my big ab gap feel a little more secure as I heal. While the hooks make it easier to put on, they do show through a regular t-shirt and I end up getting funny looks about the line down my middle. Undecided if I will invest in a third garment.
krobyn87 (verified owner) – 06/10/2018
I am currently 9 days postpartum and I cannot believe the difference in my belly already! I have been wearing my corset since day 3 pp and there is a visible change in my swelling and comfort. I was able to move to the smallest setting after just two days and will be sizing down soon! I was a c-section delivery and this corset offers the perfect amount of support and compression! I HIGHLY recommend this product to all mamas out there!
Brandy Parks (verified owner) – 06/08/2018
I wore the corset after my c-section and it made the recovery so much easier! I wish I would have known about the Bellefit corset with my first c-section. Cut down the recovery time and gave me so much support!
gabrielle.davis22 (verified owner) – 06/05/2018
I am loving this corset so far! Love the results I have noticed in my abdomen and the support it has given me. I’m not as self conscious wearing certain shirts and I’m not even 3 weeks PP yet. I will probably order a size down as well! Worth the money!
Lindy Roth (verified owner) – 06/04/2018
I started wearing it when I was discharged from the hospital following a c-section. I noticed within days the difference it was making. It’s continued to slim me down & return my belly to its former glory. I would give it five stars if it had a third row of hook and eye closures – as most people seem to have to buy a second one in a smaller size eventually. Also- a y’all size would be great!
rubyisaly (verified owner) – 06/02/2018
Loved the bellefit corset after my c section. It really helped my scar feel secure.
Britanypuentes1019 (verified owner) – 05/29/2018
This was the best purchase for myself after baby was born it seriously helped me heal and feel comfortable while being home with a newborn already being limited to certain things this made that a little easier. It definitely helped my healing process go smoothly and faster .
Desiraajordan1 (verified owner) – 05/29/2018
This product is a lifesaver! I was able to get into my pre-pregnancy jeans the same week I started wearing my corset. I actually now need to order a size down to contand now my progress!
Mia82chihuahua (verified owner) – 05/28/2018
Love the corset and definitely will recommend it to friends
a_holycross (verified owner) – 05/25/2018
I wish I had known about this product with my first baby. I started wearing the corset the day after I got home from the hospital. At first I didn’t thing it was going to close, but got it on the looser latch. By day 3 of wearing, I was able to close the corset with the tighter latch. I am so happy with the results I already see and can’t wait to order the next size smaller!

10 Weeks Postpartum: The metal boning poked out of my first girdle and it was exchanged through Bellefit. The second girdle has been wonderful- it stabilizes my core in spite of my drastic abdominal separation, it helped my uterus shrink after birth, and it helps me fit back into my clothes. It’s a big investment, but soon I will be able to purchase another girdle in a smaller size to help continue my postpartum transition. Rating 4/5 because with a petite, curvy body I am constantly hitching it back up again- I wish it had optional straps!

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.
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 three 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.
