During week 34 of my TWIN pregnancy, I got pre eclampsia. I put on 20 pounds of water weight in 1 week! I ended up having an emergency c section at 35.5 weeks and was 219 that morning! (I’m typically 125-130 and 5’7″.) I had gotten so swollen and held so much water I couldn’t recognize myself.
I had one baby vaginal, and the other emergency c section and it felt so good to put on my girdle. The abdominal binder purpose is to deliver that extra support. They were so comfortable that I would wear them almost all day and even work out in them! Thank you so much Bellefit for helping me get back to myself again!
I absolutely love my Bellefit Girdle. I started wearing it just a few days after I gave birth for a few hours each day and immediately noticed how much support it gave my core. I gradually started wearing it longer and longer throughout the day as I loved the support it gave me and loved how comfortable it was to wear.
I purchased the dual closure large and I thought it wasn’t going to fit but it fit perfectly. It was a great help when I left the hospital because it was a long way home and it made me feel secure after my c section, as a matter of fact I felt like my wound would open if I didn’t wear my Bellefit.
This is my 2nd pregnancy, and I decided to try the Bellefit girdle after reading rave reviews. I was deciding between the Bellefit and another popular postpartum girdle but ultimately decided on the Bellefit because of the hospital grade compression and the fact that it wasn’t bulky and I could wear it underneath my clothes.
Bellefit was such an important part of my very successful recovery! I’m so glad that I purchased it after reading so many great reviews (I did a ton of research before making the investment). As I recovered from my c-section, the dual closure girdle made me feel secure, confident, strong and like I was doing something really positive for my body, truly helping it to heal and recover from the inside out.
I’m 5’2 with a petite frame and gained 40 lbs each with both my pregnancies which took a huge toll on my body. After my first pregnancy I wished I had purchased a girdle so when I got pregnant the second time I knew I had to get one. After about a month of researching different postpartum belts and girdles I decided on Bellefit and so glad I did!
I extensively researched all of the postpartum girdles while I was pregnant and had decided that the Bellefit would provide the best results for helping me get back to my pre-pregnancy shape. I purchased it shortly before I delivered and I was able to fit into it about a week postpartum.
