I had heard wonderful things about the Bellefit girdle from a friend, so I was excited to try it after having my baby! I originally ordered the medium and small dual-closure girdle in the first trimester of my pregnancy. Once I got home from the hospital I was not able to fit into the medium girdle because I had gained 50lbs while pregnant. I called customer service, and they were great to work with!
This was my second pregnancy in two years and I knew I was going to need a Bellefit again! I used the girdle with zipper with my first pregnancy (and LOVED it) and decided to go with the Dual Closure for my second postpartum period (I hadn’t lost all the baby weight from my first and thought the Dual Closure was easier to get on).
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.
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.
My best friend should be credited with my Bellefit success. She recommended it in my third trimester and when it showed up on my doorstep I was totally nervous! I had gained over 40 lbs in my pregnancy (thanks to a nearly 10 lbs baby boy!), but I knew to trust the experts on their sizing recommendations and thank goodness I did!
I had my second c-section and was dreading recovery and I happened to see an ad for Bellefit and figured I’d give it a try. I put it on the first day home from the hospital and just felt supported. I was able to get moving a lot faster with the Bellefit which was a must because I also have a 2 year old!!
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.
Before pregnancy I was 200 lbs wearing a size 16. It was 2 years after my first pregnancy in which I delivered by emergency c-section. The recovery was long and painful from my c-section and I was just starting to lose that preggers belly shape…after 2 years! Well, I decided that this time I needed some help because with a 2 year old there is no such thing as down time. That’s when I discovered Bellefit.
