And the Winner Is: Belly Bandit Original Post-Pregnancy Belly Wrap

Fact: Your bump doesn’t completely disappear overnight after baby is born. Actually, you may continue to look pregnant for several days—or even weeks—postpartum. Rest assured, this is completely normal.

That said, if your midsection is feeling less than stable, a postpartum belly wrap can help. This popular option offers structure and gentle pressure to help your belly, waist and hips feel tucked in and secure in the weeks following labor and delivery. A power-compress core offers 360 degrees of targeted compression—so basically, it feels like a hug (and a healing one at that). And after 9+ months of carrying a human and then birthing them, what mom couldn’t use a little extra love and support?

What We Love:

  • Engineered with medical-grade elastic, the adjustable, latex-free belt fits around the belly, waist and hips to create stability and—bonus—provide a slimming effect

  • It supports your upper body and improves posture to help with breastfeeding and accelerate healing

  • With medical-grade compression, the band can help you feel more comfortable and secure after a c-section. Talk to your ob-gyn about using a band for extra support

  • Available in sizes XS to XL, the belt’s fit is important; you want it to be snug. If you’re unable to close it by 1 to 3 inches initially, Belly Bandit advises waiting a day or two and trying again, as initial postpartum swelling will go down
