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.

had a vaginal delivery and looked 9 months pregnant the first few days after. I bought an M size based on my measurements from the site. I gained 60lb from 110lb pre-pregnancy. First time I wore it 5 days pp, I had difficulty closing the hooks, it was so tight. There are two sets of hooks, looser and tighter. My husband had to zip me up. It felt good and I had to use the second set of hooks as my belly started going down. In a week I couldn’t wear the girdle, it was too loose and pointless. I should have ordered a small size as well. I don’t know if it would have made a difference, but now at 2 months postpartum my belly is almost gone on its own, with just a little fat left to lose, I have 25 left to lose to be 110 again. In my case the girdle was not needed.Also I’m giving 4 stars for this otherwise well-made product because the crotch hooks are impossible to undo when on, so to use the bathroom I had to unhook the whole thing and pull it down. Inconvenient.BELLEFIT RESPONSE: Please contact us at your earliest convenience to firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-894-2951, your satisfaction is our top priority.

Started using this 3 weeks after I had a normal delivery. I initially was in between of buying this and sone other girdles that are cheaper. Good thing I made the right choice. This product is trully made in good quality that can reshape your body. It is firm and thight, just the way I wanted it. I would rate it as 5 stars but the only downside is that I did not use the zipper that much so I think just the corset is enough. That’s why I am buyng the corset as my second one. Other than that, everything is great! I already recommended this to my friends.
This Girdle is great for helping jump start post-baby fitness… helps to flatten the tummy when the bellaband isn’t quite firm enough. the stiff side support can be a little uncomfortable if you wear it all day long, but it definitely works and I even wore it working out a few times.
I’ve ordered pull-up girdle first, and then this one of the smaller size. Also, I have tried Winks girdle, and I can say that I liked Bellefit better. The first one worked great, I could see results pretty quick, the second one is not as efficient and that could be due to the fact that I am 3 months post delivery now(thou I was told it still should help)Anyway, I still wear it, hoping I’d get some benefits. There’s one thing that I’m not satisfied with, and that is the fact that it rides down my ribs and pinches me on the sides. Other than that, it’s very well made, and of a good quality. I recommended it to others already 🙂
I had triplets and gained 67 lbs during my pregnancy. I had a very tender C section scar, post partum pre eclampsia and swelling, so I had to wear my hospital abdominal binder for about 7.5 weeks post partum. I ordered a Bellefit and got it 1 week post partum but the woman sized me wrong and I got a small. There was NO way I could remotely get into the small. I am 5′ 9″ and was a size 2/4 pre pregnancy so small was my usual size, but not post partum! I was so discouraged and felt really bad about myself because the girdle didn’t fit. I called customer service and they were helpful in resizing me for a medium and sending free hook and eye extenders. I wish it would’ve been more clear on the website or that the customer service people would’ve told me that if you have swelling or had multiples it can take MUCH longer to fit into a girdle. I’m now 8 weeks post partum and can comfortably wear my size Medium for 6-9 hours per day (using the extenders). It has really helped my low back pain and now finally supports my c section scar, whereas at the beginning it hurt really bad to even try on the girdle due to tenderness and swelling. I’m hoping I see good results with the Bellefit, I hope it’ll be worth the time and money.
This is my fifth child and my doctor said I have an “impressive” state of diastasis recti. Over the years I tried different types of girdles. None were strong enough to keep my belly from bulging. I tried wraps, but they seemed to squish everything from the middle in leaving the top and the bottom spilling over. The Bellefit has given me the support needed to shape a more smooth flatter look. I can feel it training my muscles to get back in the right place. It’s only been 3 weeks since I had my baby and already my tummy is back to it’s pre-pregnancy size. From here on out it’s simply building muscle memory. The only thing I wish they did was put some type of cushion on the right side where an added support block is. It tends to dig into my skin. I usually fold something soft to place between my skin and the girdle. Overall, it seems to be doing what they claimed it would do. Now I have to see what the end result will be after the 120 days. 🙂
I was so stoked to get this, but unfortunately the sizing chart was really off for me. I was sized at a small at first, so I ordered it… And it wouldn’t go up past my thighs. So I talked to customer service, and ended up buying another one, in medium, and again; was not able to wear it until 2 weeks after my c section. I was really planning on wearing it after coming home from the hospital, but I couldn’t because my corset was still too small. It’s a very nice product, and I would have absolutely loved it if the sizing guide was correct for me…
Excited to use my corset however imb9 days post c section and I still can’t get mine on and or closed. I’m guessing I’m still swollen from fluids but disappointed as they advertise to wear after getting home from the hospital which was unrealistic for me. Hoping after another week or two I can wear it since it costs so much would be a waste if I couldn’t! I really need this to help support my core and back. I hope to have great results

I was surprised to be placed in an XL after my c-section but quickly realized anything smaller would be much too painful! I’ve worn it for about one week with mild results. I know I’ll need to continue to wear it – and buy a smaller size as it’s already a little too big – within a few weeks. That being said, the customer support is great and the garment itself is very well made. With continued use I hope it does what it promises!

I bought a size medium as instructed. I like it but I wish I would have gone with a size small instead. I am 2.5 weeks post partum and its already not as tight. I do still wear my medium daily as I like how it pulls me in. I am contemplating ordering a smaller size. I will be recommending this to all of my mom/mom to be friends though!
(verified owner) – 03/25/2018
Fits small but works if you obtain correct size. Def recommend contacting customer service for help- very knowledgeable.
great product. ordered wrong size with my second (M was too small) so I knew better with my third and got the dual pack in a L and XL. So now I have all three sizes and should be covered!!

Fit as Expected
Constructed well, cinches you in.
Only issue is the zipper especially if you have sensitive skin can cause irritation even though it is somewhat lined. Follow the sizing directions as posted. Fits true to size according to those results.

I can’t explain how wonderful this girdle is, literally helped I’m up and moving like I had no surgery done on me! super great!
I weighed 169 and chose to get large, and it’s day 23 post op and getting my medium! Thanks Bellefit!
I was very happy with my first purchase. It helped me feel supported after my c-section. It also helped me to fit in my pre-pregnancy jeans. I didn’t give it five stars because I was not happy with my second order. I ordered a smaller size due to losing weight. I did the online questionnaire to help find the right size. After swearing it many times, the side of the girdle started to poke me. I started to get a bruise in that area. When I compared both of my girdles it looks like the boning was shorter on the smaller size. I would’ve returned it, but it was past the 30 days.

I just started wearing my girdle. Once I got it on and went through a few different sizes (customer service was great) it was more comfortable than I thought it would be. It gave great back support and everything feels tucked. Just wish the material was softer. I’m 5’7 amd 140. I got am xlarge.

Get kind of loose quickly as you drop the water weight and your uterus shrinks. But initially getting it on, my boyfriend had to get on the ground and crawl around to help me get it on. I’m 4’11 pre pregnancy I weighed 165 and i weighed 187 the day i gave birth. I had to order the xxl and xl. Dont have the xl on yet but everything is on the last snaps except for the crotch area. I have the extender there. I’m 11dpp. Will be trying the xl here soon. Maybe a week or two.

I finally ordered my Bellefit 12 weeks post baby. I tried a different brand and sent it back due to fitting issues (it did not hook in the crotch and would slowly slip upward). I noticed right away that the Bellefit was made with stronger materials allowing it to be more supportive, and once putting it on I was able to hide the girdle even with a tight shirt. I was hesitant having something between my crotch due to using the bathroom and comfort. It was honestly easy and quick to unhook, especially with my new mommy bladder. I’ve been wearing Bellefit for four weeks. I have slowly noticed progress. I would highly recommend using Bellefit’s app to track your progress which will keep you monitored and you’ll want to wear your girdle even when you think it’s not working. I do wear a thin undershirt under the girdle for comfort. I was getting sore from the boning in the girdle.

This is my third pp girdle. I am 12 weeks pp and already a size small. I went from size XL to a Medium and now to a size small. These are amazing!!!! The support they give to my back and csection is great. The only thing I dont like about it is that it keeps rolling down from the side. I don’t know if it is because the other two were corsets and this one the dual corset. Other than that its great and I recommend to any mother after birth especially after a csection.

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
– 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.
Yes! The front hook and eye closures of the Dual-Closure are designed with the incision in mind.
The main difference between the two styles is that the Dual-Closure (also known as a Double Corset) has the side zipper closure as well. Underneath the zipper are two sets of adjustable hook and eye closures (one near the top and one near the bottom).
Because it has both closure options, the Dual-Closure is able to be adjusted the most out of all of the other styles. Many moms like having the option of both closures in one girdle to also be able to choose which method is more convenient for them throughout their recovery. For example, in the beginning when your swelling is at its peak, you may find that it is easier for you to use just the front closure. Once you get a little farther along you may find that just using the zipper closure is more convenient for you.
Yes! The Dual-Closure is an excellent option for either delivery method.
The Dual-Closure is not bulky and is flush with your skin; however because of the front 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! Keep in mind though that we generally recommend a Girdle with Hooks (Corset) after an abdominal surgery that may or may not be related to pregnancy. As always, consult with your physician to make sure that a compression garment is the best choice for your recovery.
As your body transforms after your delivery, you can adjust the settings when slightly more or less compression is needed.
The Dual Closure has two rows of hook and eye closures in the front that are separated by an inch apart and a lateral zipper on the side with two sets of hook and eye closures underneath.
Since the Dual-Closure is adjustable, it is suitable for all body type shapes.
Begin wearing your Dual-Closure 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 Dual-Closure 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:
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.
