I am 3 weeks postpartum and am enjoying my bellefit girdle thus far. At first I needed assistance zipping the girdle and fastening the hooks but soon after those first couple wears I was small enough to be able to put it on myself. It is snug yet breathable. It definitely seems like a quality girdle! I love the support and confidence it provides during the postpartum time. After calling several times with questions and concerns about different kids of hurdles corsets that would work best for me I was pleasantly surprised how helpful and accommodating Bellefit is to deal with. They definitely stand by the products they make!! My only concerns are the hooks (on the side by the zipper) wearing out over time as they are already a bit loose and I wonder how that would hold up over time. The boning on the side opposite of the zipper curves in toward my body and pokes my side making it uncomfortable for prolonged use. Lastly, the top of the girdle can cause a muffin top effect because it doesn’t come up high enough on my torso. Overall, this is soo worth the money. I am pleased with the way it fits in my belly and back side and am quite hopeful that it will do with it is intended to do- in fact, I’m already back in my prepregnancy clothes!! I would most definitely recommend this to my friends!

To give you a better idea of fit, I am a petite 4’11” and at 9 weeks postpartum I weigh 105lbs. This baby is baby #7 and I am 38 years old. I ordered a size xsmall because I would be shrinking and couldn’t afford to buy two girdles in different sizes. I started wearing the girdle at about 1 week postpartum. Before then it was too uncomfortable on my sore uterus. The girdle has a lot of compression and I was really squishing to get into the xsmall. The girdle has a lot of compression and really squeezes things back in. I wore the girdle all day every day for the first 8 weeks and now my belly is much flatter. I am not back to my prepregnancy size but not bad for #7. The girdle seemed to help support my back as well. The downside is that it is not always comfortable. Driving in it was very uncomfortable for me. Sitting in the rocker nursing was also not very comfortable… Would I wear it again with a future pregnancy? Probably. However, ! am only giving four stars due to the boning issue causing lack of comfort.
I bought the bellefit girdle with side zipper. I didn’t start wearing it until 6 weeks after delivery. I do like it but it is really tight. At first I had problems wearing it because I had a moderate tear since I delivered vaginally. The flap of fabric that goes between my legs was really tight and I could hardly stand wearing it because it put so much pressure on my vaginal area. I finally thought to myself that I had a bra extender that i could use to create more space and decrease the pressure. This helped although i’m sure it was not the way the company intended for it to be worn. After I did that though it seemed that the girdle was a lot more comfortable because i could pull the girdle up where it was supposed to be rather having it half way down my stomach where it seemed to put a lot of pressure on my upper stomach area and also having to pull it down because of the pressure on my vaginal area. I don’t wear it everyday yet because i am at home but when i go back to work i think i will start wearing it everyday. The only thing that would make this product better is maybe having a long torso option or a extended crotch snap for women that has these issues. When I wear the girdle i do feel more confident and secure because it is supporting my post baby belly! I do enjoy that part!
This girdle was truly helpful in supporting my midsection. I had horrible issues with my SI joint during pregnancy and after with no core muscles on top of back pain the girdle made all the difference. It was very easy to wear and stayed in place. How ever, when it comes to how it looked…it made my butt horribly flat and gave me saddle bags; also it was not long enough for my torso I don’t think. I would prefer it to come high enough in the back that it doesn’t give the appearance of a role under the bra. All in all I’m glad I made the purchase it feels good to wear it around the house for support.
I bought this after our daughter (second baby) was born. I love it! It smooths everything out and really helped with the water retention. I’ve had a belly band in the past and I couldn’t wear it out of the house since it would bunch up under my clothes. This was a perfect solution!
I had a C section about 5 weeks ago but started wearing this girdle with zipper about a week after surgery. I bought the small because it was the size suggested using the “choosing and sizing” tool on bellefit. I gained about 30 lbs during pregnancy at 5 feet tall. My belly was very swollen after delivery, looked like I was still 5 months pregnant. My belly was very tender and still is 5 weeks postpartum. I wore the girdle about few times a week only for about 2-3 hours at a time because the small was quite tight. As the swelling decreased I increased the wearing time. The girdle really helped the pain by compressing the flab. The only thing I say needs improvement is the hook/zipper part. I think it needs another hook in the middle because the current design has a hook on the top and one on the bottom. When you’re still so swollen it’s extremely hard to zip in the middle when there’s no hook to hold the girdle together close enough to zip it up! I would recommend buying the bundle in 2 different sizes. One should be the suggested size and one in a size bigger if you want to wear it right after delivery. The suggested size would not fit comfortably. (That’s if you can even fit in to it without waiting a week or so!)

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.
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.
The Girdle with Zipper has a lateral zipper on the side with two sets of hook and eye closures underneath. They are separated by an inch apart and so as your body transforms after your delivery, you can adjust the setting when slightly more or less compression is needed. Because of the closure location, it is not very visible underneath most clothing options.
The Girdle with zipper also has a convenient crotch are closure that allows you to use the restroom or change your underwear and pads comfortably without needing to take it off each time.
We only recommend it after your C-Section Incision has healed. We would recommend a Girdle with Hooks (Corset) or Dual-Closure after a c-section.
If you choose to purchase a Girdle with Zipper after a C-Section, because of the closure location, you may need assistance in the beginning since your torso needs to twist slightly in order to access the zipper.
