- 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.

Where to Measure Your Hips
How to Find Your Size:
- Find your current weight & hip range on the chart.
- If less than 36 weeks, add 1 Lb for each remaining week of pregnancy. 1 week = 1 Lb.
- Your ideal size will be based on your approximate weight at the end of your pregnancy.
- Find your current weight & hip range on the chart.
- Your ideal size will be based mainly on your current weight (your weight now).
My weight, hips and pre-pregnancy jean size don’t match on one size, how do I choose my size?
- If none of your measurements match, then choose your size based on your current weight.
- If pregnant, make sure you add 1 Lb/ week to your final weight to select the correct size.
Why is the chart saying I need a bigger size than I wear in my regular clothing?
- Bellefit Girdles are made with strong compression and our sizing runs small. Our sizes are NOT the same as your regular clothing or underwear. If you are normally a size Medium, you most likely won’t be a size Medium in Bellefit.
Do I choose my size based on the weight I want to be?
- No. You must choose a size based on the weight you are NOW. This is the only way to make sure your girdle fits you well after giving birth. If pregnant, make sure you add 1 Lb/ week to your final weight to select the correct size.
I’m really tall, should I size down?
- If you are tall (5’9” +) it’s possible that you can choose 1 size smaller than the suggested size. To be sure, call or message us for sizing help.
I gained more than 30 Lb during pregnancy, how do I choose my size?
- Choose your size based on the weight you are NOW. You may need more than 1 size to complete your recovery. If you purchase a bundle select 1 size based on your current weight and 1 size smaller for later on.
Should I choose my size based on my pre-pregnancy jean size?
- No. Choosing your size based on your jean size only will give you the wrong Girdle size. The most important measurement to choose a size is your weight. Refer to “How to Find Your Size if You’re Pregnant/Postpartum”
Yes! The front hook and eye closures of the Dual-Closure Girdle are designed to allow you to put on the garment and fit it comfortably over your incision before starting to close the front hooks. This closure method reduces contact and pressure on the incision when putting on the garment.
We still strongly encourage you to follow your doctor’s instructions regarding wound cleaning and care. Keeping your incision clean and dry is important for healing. The Bellefit Dual-Closure Girdle is designed to give you support in this sensitive area.
The Dual Closure is worn tightly around the torso following the birth of a baby. To maximize its benefits, postpartum girdles & corsets should fit quite snugly around the midsection. It is this tightness that helps improve posture and aid in recovery after baby is born. Since 2008 Bellefit has been the maker of the best postpartum girdles & corsets for recovery after natural birth or c-section.
Postpartum corsets also apply steady pressure around a woman’s abdomen and lumbar region. This pressure is useful to reduce swelling, expel fluids, improve posture, provide support for both the abdomen and back and allow a woman to have more mobility after giving birth.
In addition, wearing a girdle post pregnancy has the added bonus of helping a woman fit into their pre-pregnancy clothes comfortably and sooner than they would if they went through a C-section or natural childbirth recovery without it.
The Dual-Closure Girdle is our most adjustable style because it has 3 rows of hook and eye closures in the front as well as a padded side-zipper closure. As your body recovers after your delivery, you can adjust the tightness.
The Dual-Closure Girdle also has a convenient groin closure that allows you to use the restroom or change your underwear and pads comfortably without needing to take off the garment.
Yes! The Dual-Closure Girdle is perfect for either c-section or natural birth recovery.
We know what you are going through in your pregnancy. Every fiber in your body wants to deliver your baby naturally, but each pregnancy comes with its unique challenges. The Bellefit Dual-Closure Girdle has you covered for Vaginal or C-Section Delivery.
Begin wearing your Dual-Closure Girdle 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 Girdle is right for you since every recovery process is so unique.
As a new mother, you likely have questions about what you can and cannot do after giving birth. Your doctor will recommend a period of rest and recovery following childbirth. So, how do you know if a postpartum girdle is right for you?
Among the many benefits that come with wearing a postpartum girdle is how well it keeps things in place. After pregnancy your body will look and feel different and this is something you should embrace. Your Bellefit Postpartum Girdle or Corset will help compress your abdomen, giving you a more seamless look that can be worn under dresses, jeans, and sweatpants, or leggings. The Corset also provides extra support for the lower back which has a tendency to hurt after childbirth.
Having a garment that keeps everything in place makes it easier for you to achieve better posture and prevent or reduce muscle strain. Among its many benefits, a postpartum compression garment such as a Bellefit Corset reduces discomfort when trying to perform your normal daily routine and it also reduces your risk of injury due to strain on your sensitive core.
Bellefit girdles & corsets are engineered to maximize comfort while providing support in all the right places.
The Dual-Closure Girdle is not bulky and is flush with your skin; however because of the front hooks 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!
If you prefer a style with no front closures, take a look at these other options:
Yes! The Dual-Closure Girdle is an excellent option for recovery from abdominal surgeries, tummy tucks, hysterectomies, and more. Please consult your doctor before.
Yes, all Bellefit Girdles & Corsets are designed to accommodate longer torso lengths. The adjustable groin flap has 3 rows of hooks so you can set them for a comfortable fit. Our new Tripled-Layered Abdominal Cincher Corset also offers excellent long-torso coverage and adjustable compression.
Medical Conditions & Their Medical Codes
Doctors recommend Bellefit compression girdles and corsets for the treatment of these medical conditions which are most commonly experienced by women after childbirth.
O71.89 DIASTASIS RECTI
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.
M54.5 ACUTE OR CHRONIC PAIN IN THE LUMBAR OR SACRAL REGION
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.
M25.551/M25.552 HIP PAIN R/L
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.
O26.7 SUBLUXATION OF SYMPHYSIS (PUBIS) IN PREGNANCY, CHILDBIRTH and PUERPERIUM
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.
O70.0-O70.4 PERINEAL LACERATION DURING DELIVERY
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.
N81.2 INCOMPLETE UTEROVAGINAL PROLAPSE
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.
R10.2 PELVIC AND PERINEAL PAIN
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.
R10.30 LOWER ABDOMINAL, INGUINAL, GROIN PAIN
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.
