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.

I put this on within 6 hours of my second C-section and the difference was like night and day. The support is amazing. It definitely helped my low back and to shrink the uterus. The only issue was the rectangular pieces on the sides. I had gone from a large to a medium. When I did the pieces dug into my skin to the point that I just couldn’t wear it. Even with that I would still recommend it to anyone recovering from a C. It is very well made and so incredibly supportive.

I was induced a week past my due date and had to end up having a c-section. I had a lot of back pain and my lower abdomen was sore of course. At first I was nervous to use Bellefit for after my unplanned c-section since I was in pain. However, the first day I slipped this beauty on my back pain was instantly relieved. I was able to sleep better with it on because it really supported my abdomen and incision. I used the online size guide and was hesitant about ordering a large but it was the perfect size!! I’m so glad I purchased this product!! It made my c-section recovery MUCH easier and I love the results I got from it! Only downside was I needed a smaller size after just a few weeks! Which is also a good thing because it helped me get close to my pre-pregnancy size!
janet miller – 02/25/2015
It is a great product …..!
Tina Todd – 07/06/2015
I am beyond satisfied with it. From my pre pregnancy weight, with only wearing it a few times, I’ve lost almost 20 lbs! The only thing I don’t like is the metal stick like things on both sides, that I’m assuming keep the girdle from rolling down. When sitting down they poke into my sides a little, just enough to annoy me. Lol other than that I have no complaints.
Rose – 09/12/2015
I was so happy with this purchase. I was a little hesitant at first due to the price, but it was well worth it. This is the first corset I bought after giving birth. It really helped to flatten my stomach. I ordered a smaller size after losing weight, but decided to purchase a girdle (without a zipper) instead. Would not recommend that one. I wish I would have ordered a smaller version of this corset instead. Also, I didn’t order the “bundle” with two sizes and I wish I had…I ended up spending more money in the long run. You WILL need two sizes because you will lose a lot of weight.
Gerard Dauphinais – 10/08/2015
I have been wearing my bellefit for about 4 days and I can already feel it working. At first, it felt too tight and restrictive but I think I put it on a day or 2 too early (2 days after birth). I use it for about 12 hours per day and am working my way up to a full day. I haven’t used it while sleeping but will shortly. Overall, I think this is a great purchase and hope to update my review in a couple months.
Amanda Wirag – 10/29/2015
After gaining an expensive amount of weight in my second pregnancy (70 lbs) I knew I would need a great product to help me bounce back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I have an hour glass shape so I opted for the Bellefit Dual Closure Girdle. The day I left the hospital I put it on; was a tiny bit tight but true to size. I felt great leaving the hospital and immediately saw a difference postpartum from my first pregnancy. In the first couple of days my swelling went down very fast and every week I was tightening the closures one more clip. I would absolutely recommend this product for postpartum weight loss, tightening and puffiness. Fits to size and very comfortable!on October 28, 2015
Edith Cepeda – 12/09/2015
My experience with this product has been nothing but good. I originally purchased the wrong size ( use Bellefit direct website for sizing). The material of this product is really high quality and worth the money. I called customer service for and exchange and I have to say they are extremely helpful. They made the exchange process painless and quick. I am very excited to see the results in a few weeks. Fast service, high quality and great customer service = happy customer! on December 9, 2015
suha fawaz – 12/11/2015
As many of you women that have had c-sections already know, finding a supportive yet comfortable girdle that will not cause further pain and irritation to your incision is very important. That’s why I am so happy to have found the Bellefit Dual Closure Girdle. It offers unsurpassed support to your abdominal area after having a c-section. Look no further, THIS is the girdle you should get to help get you back into your pre-pregnancy shape, fast! on December 10, 2015
happy customer – 12/13/2015
FEELS GREAT AND HELPS WITH CONFIDENCE! MAYBE A LIL HARD TO CLOSE IF YOUR JUST AT THE SIZE, ONLY IN TIME NO PROBLEM! CUSTOMER SERVICE IS THE MOST PROFESSION I HAVE DEALT WITH IN YEARS ! I HAVE RECOMMENDED THIS TO ALL MOMS TO BE! THANK YOU FOR A GREAT PRODUCT AND SERVICE
adriana s. – 12/15/2015
great product. wish I had known about these with my last 2 pregnancies . and the customer service was more than helpful when I had issues with ordering and sizing. Wasn’t just an automated message. it was actual people! so thankful for their help and patience in meeting my needs!!!!
Muyih – 12/21/2015
I delivered 1 week and half ago and I wore bellefit as soon as I was discharge from the hospital and I am impressed how flat my stomach has gotten since giving birth. I don’t wear it 24 hours since it gives me heart burn to sleep with it on but as soon as I get up in the morning I weat it and only take it off when going to sleep. I have been recommending this product to friends and family who are currently pregnant. I really love the results. Al though it is a little pricey its worth saving for. Like the other review I come across the site just start saving from the beginning of pregnancy and you should be fine. I hope this helps make your decision in purchasing because it is a great product.

Sides keep slipping down. Very irritating. Otherwise good product
Mara – 01/14/2016
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.
Rochelle Brown – 01/19/2016
This girdle did not fit. I was looking forward to using this.

Lindsey Stenshoel – 01/23/2016
I bought the dual closure but it was uncomfortable under clothes, I could only wear it a couple hours around the house. I emailed customer service, who were great and sent some extenders. This made it better.
Tracy – 01/30/2016
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. 🙂
jo camp – 02/13/2016
The corset was extremely well made. I was unable to use it due to a physical issue unique to me. The customer service person (Eunice) was beyond helpful in trying to help me be able to use it as it was my last best hope before resorting to surgery. She and others I spoke with are compassionate and patient and TRULY want to benefit their customers. Sadly I had to return it, and Bellefit made that a very easy process. If there were more than five stars available, I’d award them.
EM – 02/15/2016
The good: this product really works. People comment that they can’t believe I gave birth six weeks ago. The bad: the sizing is very strange, and the corset’s uncomfortable. When I got to the point where the medium felt too loose to really be effective, the small was still painfully tight.
Aisling – 03/18/2016
My girdle didnt fit when I got home form the hospital =( I read a lot of review of moms that wore it right away. Maybe I was recommended the wrong size?
Majlinda – 04/25/2016
I am disappointed, but still wearing it hoping for results.
Irene – 04/27/2016
It’s very comfy and helps with back support a lot . Would recommend bit for c- section .
Samantha – 05/13/2016
First let me say that I ordered this when I was in the hospital. The package came very quickly and the shipping notifications were great. When I got home and started wearing it i saw results quicker than I thought. The only regret I have is that I didn’t order an extra in a smaller size.
Lily Shevchuk – 05/16/2016
I ordered a medium measured myself and the size was too small. Next time I’ll know to order up a size !!!
Jaden – 06/03/2016
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…

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.
