They are separated by an inch apart so you may tighten the girdle when additional compression is needed as you progress during your childbirth recovery. Although we do recommend this style for women that have had a Natural delivery, many moms do choose to wear the Girdle with Zipper after their C-Section incision has healed.

Girdle Sizing Help
Use the Bellefit Choosing and Sizing calculator to find out which Girdle Style will better accommodate your body shape and weight gain.
Accurate Sizing Begins with knowing your Hip Contour Measurement.
WHY: When putting on your girdle, it has to go past your hips. Without an accurate hip contour measurement, your girdle may not fit properly. It could be too tight, or worse, be too loose and not provide adequate compression when you need it most.
Please watch this 40 second video to quickly learn how to measure.
HIP CONTOUR MEASUREMENT ALTERNATIVE: You’ll need a String and a Ruler. Wrap the String around the widest part of your hips and mark the spot where the end meets. Lay the String down on a flat surface and then use the Ruler to measure in increments up to your mark. If you don’t have a String, you can try using a long belt.
Fully unzip the side zipper and open the inner tabs beneath the zipper.
Sit down on the edge of your bed and step into the girdle one foot at a time.
Stand to pull it up as far as you can.
Close the side zipper’s inner tabs first and then fully zip up the zipper.
Center the front panel and adjust until comfortable.
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.
