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 Somewhat Small
The material and pieces to this corset are above and beyond any other I’ve had. But, the customer service is what has kept me so impressed with this company! When I was exchanging my small corset for a merger size was an ease. I was able to speak with a person (not a machine), and discuss the exchange via email with a personal representative. Excellent company ethics!

Fit Fit as Expected
I started wearing one week postpartum and the compression feels incredibly comfortable along my incision line. I love how it feels.
knandre – 02/27/2017
I wear this girdle all day and it’s like I don’t even have it on. I just had my baby 30th of January and I decided I just had to have one. Since this is my 7th child I really needed some post partum belly support. So glad I chose this girdle. Customer service is fantastic as well. I was sceptical of the sizing before I ordered so I contacted customer service and they answered all of my questions. I would 100% recommend this item to anyone who has just had a baby.

This is my second time wearing the bellefit dual closure girdle post partum. I gave birth to twins and was diagnosed with diastis reti. There is no other postpartum girdle that I would use nor recommend – it’s the best on the market. Using the girdle was instrumental in getting my figure back during my first pregnancy- hence why I’m a repeat buyer. Well made, long lasting and delivers results.

Fit Too Small
The pressure feels good but its not comfortable for me to wear all day and night. I wish I’d had a better experience.
carefournier (verified owner) – 03/21/2017
This is going to work great for me! Excellent customer service helped me find my true fit–for now, and for the later postpartum months.
Rebeca House (verified owner) – 03/31/2017
After giving birth my lower back was killing me, I found comfort when using the dual closure girdle. The pain literally disappeared as long as I was wearing it. Amazing support and it’s a bonus that it also helps reshape your post baby body. Two thumbs up!
Carrie G – 04/03/2017
I ordered this product for my first pregnancy 2+ years ago, but found it a bit uncofortable in the groin area due to my long torso. That being said, it still gave great support and helped with my recovery even when worn part-time. Fast forward to my current (second) pregnancy and I am glad that I called customer service, becuase with the extenders they can send, I anticipate being able to get much more use after this pregnancy. Customer Service was amazingly helpful and were even able to offer recommendations for use under formal attire that I will be wearing 2 months postpartum. I would highly recommend bellefit products based on the quality and if you are unsure about a product before or after you purchase, do not hesitate to give them a call!
stacismith89 (verified owner) – 04/04/2017
I read all the great reviews and thought this would be perfect for healing my diastasis recti and improving my posture. I purchased the dual expecting it to be the best. The concept seemed great…but the it was uncomfortable for me. It is just too short for my torso.

Fit Somewhat Large
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!
Poornendulal (verified owner) – 05/26/2017
I started using this 2 weeks later my c section. I was given a band from the hospital and i thought this was good enough. But after using bellefit i realized the band they gave me in hospital is very basic. The bellefit is made of a very good material making it very comfortable to wear. I walk and go to gym wearing my bellefit. I loved it so much because it did a very good job supporting my back while walking and running. I could not have asked for anything better.
Amanda – 05/31/2017
I absolutely love this product! I bought one for my first pregnancy and loved my results. This time with my second pregnancy I thought I might need a different size. The customer service was stellar. The representative helped me determine what size I needed this time around. She recommended I order a dual pack since I was right on the line with sizing. The fabric is high quality and the fit is great. I automatically felt like my body was being put back together and I loved the way I looked in my clothes. When you have a baby you want to wear comfortable clothes that are loose but there are always times where you need to look a little more put together and this product helps you achieve that look while assisting in recovery at the same time.
Jesi V (verified owner) – 06/22/2017
I am an active mom, yoga and pilates instructor and recently had my 2nd son born emergency c-section. I knew I wanted core support and lumbar support especially if I also had to care for a toddler and newborn after a major abdominal surgery .
I was also recovering from a major upper respiratory infection so the girdle also assisted with coughing after surgery! (talk about unpleasant however the girdle made it manageable)

From the initial moment I did wear it, i felt the difference in my body and self esteem and confidence. Even my husband was so jealous that he wanted one but I explained that it is only for women After 2 weeks only I changed to the first raw. I liked the way the clothes look on me. Their customer service is great, efficient and friendly. Thank you again! I recommended it to all my friends too for its all benefit!
KEVIN A (verified owner) – 07/12/2017
Ive use bellefit before when i had a miscarriage, and was convince to buy a new one since i love it before. But i dont know but everytime i used this its giving me terrible back pain. I was only able to use it few times.
Rekhas (verified owner) – 07/20/2017
I did not like the size but could not return it.
Shelita P (verified owner) – 07/21/2017
I’ve had nothing short of a great experience with my dual closure girdle. Not only do I feel the support I need, but I have gained some confidence in the way I look, as I close the gap of my diastasis recti.
Ali A (verified owner) – 07/30/2017
I ordered the dual closure girdles for the birth of my third child. I have diastasis recti from my first two pregnancies, and nothing I did could ever close the gap, and I always had a big belly as a result. I started wearing the XL girdle 3 days after giving birth this time and am very happy with the results so far – my belly has flattened considerably and looks to be at almost the same place it was prior to getting pregnant. The fit is very small, I was surprised to be sized in to an XL, but after 3 weeks of wearing it I felt it was time to size down in to the L because I no longer felt that my abdominal muscles were being pushed together enough. Because they do fit small, be prepared for marking on your body. Customer service is also very helpful, from helping me pick out the correct sizes prior to purchase, to sending a replacement item expedited when the incorrect item was initially sent. I look forward to seeing continued results, especially once I am cleared for exercise and lose a little more weight.
Kathleen (verified owner) – 08/11/2017
I love it!
Aurelie (verified owner) – 09/09/2017
After finding out I was pregnant with my third child I was determined not to struggle this time around with the mommy pouch. I have made some research and I decided to give it a try. So far I am very happy. My belly has flattened much much much faster and I am back in my pre-pregnancy clothes 3 weeks after giving birth. I am already thinking about purchasing a smaller size but I think that I will order the corset because I have not used the dual closure more than a few days.
Christena (verified owner) – 09/27/2017
This girdle is extremely comfortable! It doesn’t roll or buckle when you sit which I was worried about. I don’t have to hide behind clothes 2x my size anymore. It’s been great!
Lynette Fieldhous (verified owner) – 10/16/2017
I loved the fit on my torso and onto my hips, however I HATED how it fit across my butt. I’m a person that generally wear thongs because I hate panty lines and I can’t wear this without getting pantylines and having my butt bulge. It makes me terribly self conscious and I can only wear it at home.
Damika Turner (verified owner) – 11/13/2017
I think it’s a pretty good product I lost my baby fat in less than 2wks
I love it

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.
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.
