Important Information

Directions
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.

The Girdle/Corset acts to retract the body by drawing in stretched muscles and provides medical-grade compression to your abdominal area. We have even heard great testimonies from Moms that began using Bellefit up to 8-10 months postpartum and were able to benefit greatly from its use.


Description

The Corset is adjustable and has two rows of hook and eye closures in the front that are separated by an inch apart so you may tighten the girdle when additional compression is needed as you progress during your childbirth recovery. The hook and eye closures are designed with the C-Section incision in mind however it is an excellent option for either delivery method.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the main benefits of the Corset?
    The Corset is adjustable and has two rows of hook and eye closures in the front that are separated by an inch apart. As your body transforms after your delivery, you can adjust the setting when slightly more or less compression is needed.

    The Corset 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.

  • What is the difference between the Dual Girdle and Corset?
    Both the Corset and Dual-closure are Bellefit’s most popular styles since they can be used after either delivery method and offer the most adjustment options, making them ideal for all body types (Hourglass/Triangle/Rectangle/Hourglass/Oval).

    The Dual-Closure and the Corset are both adjustable and have two rows of front hook and eye closures that are separated by an inch apart. They can be adjusted so as time goes by, you can tighten (or loosen) your girdle when slightly more or less compression is needed. The main difference between the two styles is that the Dual-Closure (also known as a Double Corset) has the side zipper closure as well. Underneath the zipper are two sets of adjustable hook and eye closures (one near the top and one near the bottom).

    The Dual-Closure and the Corset are both adjustable and have two rows of front hook and eye closures that are separated by an inch apart. They can be adjusted so as time goes by, you can tighten (or loosen) your girdle when slightly more or less compression is needed. The main difference between the two styles is that the Dual-Closure (also known as a Double Corset) has the side zipper closure as well. Underneath the zipper are two sets of adjustable hook and eye closures (one near the top and one near the bottom).

    Because it has both closure options, the Dual-Closure is able to be adjusted the most out of all of the other styles. Many moms like having the option of both closures in one girdle to also be able to choose which method is more convenient for them throughout their recovery. For example, in the beginning when your swelling is at its peak, you may find that it is easier for you to use just the front closure. Once you get a little farther along you may find that just using the zipper closure is more convenient for you.

    If you still need help deciding which style is best for you, feel free to give us a call and speak to one of our specialists for personalized size and style suggestions.

  • Can I wear a Corset after a c-section?
    Yes! The front hook and eye closures of the Corset are designed with the incision in mind.

  • Can you see it underneath my clothes?
    The Corset is not bulky and is flush with your skin; however because of the closure location, it may be slightly visible underneath certain fabrics or if you are wearing a fitted top. Keep in mind though that your comfort and healing process is the most important factor!

  • I had a natural delivery. Can I still use the Corset style?
    Yes! The Corset is an excellent option for either delivery method.

  • I am unsure of my delivery method. Is the Corset still recommended?
    Yes! The Corset is an excellent option for either delivery method.

  • I am not pregnant but have had abdominal surgery. Can I still use the Corset style?
    Yes! The Corset is recommended in the case of an abdominal surgery that may or may not be the result of a pregnancy.

  • Is the Corset adjustable?
    Yes. There are two rows of the hook and eye closures that are separated by an inch apart so you can tighten your girdle when more or less compression is needed throughout your recovery.

  • What body type is best for a Corset?
    Since the Corset is adjustable, it is suitable for all body shape types.
    (Triangle/Inverted Triangle/Hourglass/Rectangle)

  • When can I start wearing my Corset?
    Begin wearing your Corset the day that you are discharged from the hospital or as soon as you are ready to wear it after the delivery. 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. As always, consult with your physician to make sure the Corset is right for you since every recovery process is so unique.

I unfortunately purchased the wrong size and then had an allergic reaction to medications during my c-section which caused me to retain a severe amount of water.

I recommend the bellefit…I gained a lot of weigh with this pregnancy due to my husband leaving for the Navy and I had two little one under the age of three and after I had my third one I needed something that was going to support my belly. I wore it when I was three weeks postpartum and it helped me…but i didn't drastically change and I am six weeks postpartum and I am still at the same… but it gives me support because when I don't wear it my body aches…I am looking forward to get the dual-closure corset next.

The corset is the perfect fit for the hourglass gal. I loved the support it gave me after the birth of my child. I started to wear it on day two post partum & was back in my pre pregnancy jeans in less than a month. It helps with back posture which is totally helpful when breastfeeding. I'll defiantly recommend this to other mamas. Customer service for the product is fantastic. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call.

Rating Worth every penny -8/9/2014
Reviewed by: Rhonda Davies from Duluth, MN.

I ordered my girdle as soon as I hit 36 weeks it arrived within 48 hours. I have a short torso and still experience a good fit with no rolling or pinching. I am normally a size 12 with hips at 41.5 inches. I also tended to carry my weight in my tummy before pregnancy and the same is true afterward. My hips only went up 1 inch during pregnancy. The medium works well for me and I don’t foresee needing a smaller size for some time – if at all. The truth is if I needed a smaller size in 3 months to continue the level of compression I experience now – I would do it. From the moment I put this girdle on my post-partum recovery experience changed; I felt like I had control over my abdominal muscles again. I was able to fit the girdle over my belly by the fifth day following my surgery. I left the hospital with a standard surgical binder for my abdomen which made it easier for me to use my core muscles while standing or sitting but the binder was of average quality and did not provide a level of support sufficient for me to feel comfortable walking sitting or standing for any period of time. I always felt sharp twinges if the chair I used was too plush or too deep in the seat when I wore the binder. The greatest challenge for me since my c-section is simply getting out of bed. When I take naps during the day while wearing the Bellefit this task is easy requiring minimal effort and diminished amounts of pain (At night, I wear a shapewear camisole which extends over my hips). Early in my recovery, if I wore anything else and tried to get out of bed I felt like a turtle on its back, not to mention the pain and feelings of helplessness. The girdle is expensive, but it is well-made and well worth the money because the difference is both dramatic immediate. Everyday activities are so much more comfortable and lifting my baby is so much easier. So if you value comfort and having the freedom to do everyday activities pain-free (within reason) you will not regret purchasing this girdle.

This was a very good buy for post-pregnancy. I started using it a few days after my natural delivery, and I found that it brought me wonderful core support that I was lacking. With the girdle on, my back pain was greatly diminished.
Rating Fit into my pre-prgnancy clothes again! -7/30/2014
Reviewed by: Samantha Wooten from Lexington, KY.

I purchase the Bundle 1 Dual-Closure Girdle in a Large and 1 Girdle w/Zipper in an X-large. I bought both just in case I needed a larger size if I didn't fit the smaller one. After three months of wearing the Bellefit occasionally I'm happy to say I've lost over 40lbs of baby weight and can fit into my per-pregancy jeans and clothing! When I returned to work I wore my per-pregnancy scrubs and got many compliments from co-workers that i looked great for having a baby! I believe If I wore it daily I would've lost even more but I'm already happy with my size. You can repurpose the corset as a shaper too! I still wear as a shaper underneath when I wear dresses for weddings. It fits comfortably and hugs my waist in! I couldn't believe it! After given birth (April 8, 2014) I tried on the large but couldn't get into it comfortably. I was so busy with a newborn I forgot to read the instructions on how to wear it. I tried it on while standing!! But the correct way is laying down on the bed! After I slipped into it incorrectly it was pinching me under my armpit fat and boobs. But I knew I had a larger size as backup. When I talked to my OB, she said that I was still quite swollen from the IV fluids and that I should start get back to normal in 2 weeks. So I waited two weeks to try on the large again and I got into it!!! So, if you were a post-partum balloon like me, wait about two weeks after the swelling goes down and try again!! But also have the back up just in case. Customer Service was great and allow for return if unworn/unopen with tags. Just try calling them!!

Reviewed by: Gerrie Aik from San ramon.

2 months prior to my duedate a co worker of mine told me about belly bandit. While browing through it in youtube trying to get reviews i ran into bellefit video instead. I started looking into it by going to their website and read all the reviews and testimonials i was convince. It took me awhile to actually made up my mind because i never used any postpartum girdle from my first pregnancy and it's pretty pricey. So i had to show it to my husband to get some kind of approval. He look into it and he said why not so 1 week prior to my due date i ordered the bundle #2 which is the corset and the side zipper type. I was super excited about it when i got it in the mail which I received within 2 business days. Fast forward... i started wearing the corset when i got home from the hospital. I kept it on 24/7. I only remove it when i take a shower or wash it. So far im loving the results. I could fit my size 6 jeans already and i was very surprise. Everyone keep asking me how i lost my tummy and what i've been doing to look slim right after a couple of weeks. Bellifit does gave me more self esteem that i actually take my time getting ready when i go places. Which is a plus because with my first pregnancy i didnt felt this great. So yes i would totally recommend bellefit to anyone. Not only help me feel great about myself but having it on help me mpve around without the pain. Cause i felt like a truck ran over me after i had my 7lbs baby. I never had those pains with my first so it was very helpful that i had the bellefit on. I could move around without a problem. I also notice cause of bellefit it helps me with my food intake. I dont over stuff myself like i was doing when i was still pregnant. So i love this product. So thank you bellefit! 😆

I received my Bellefit Corset within the same week of ordering, and was very happy to have it for a special night out. I felt more confident and looked great in the dress I wore. As moms know, the post pregnancy belly is less then flattering and makes us want to run for those baggy shirts and yoga pants. This item will have you pulling on the fitted tees again with confidence. I'm not a petite gal by any means, but the fit makes you feel smoothed and maybe not perfect prebaby body, but enough that the image is very close. I wore this to my dance class, as well as when I go for walks with my daughter. Even in extreme hit it was neither irritating nor chafing. It should speak volumes that it has been worn for hours of dancing too! Good luck all you moms out there!

The quality and construction is great, but it didn't work out for me. I had to wash it before wearing it/trying it on because of my sensitive skin. I will break out in hives. It didn't roll when I wore it, but I had a c-section and it irritated and rubbed the incision site so bad that it opened up a bit. I had to wait until it healed more before trying it on again and by then I was past the 30 day return policy anyway. It still caused discomfort on my incision. Also, the crotch closure was very uncomfortable. It's very stiff and dug into my thighs so terribly that I had to walk like a cowboy. I really tried to like it. Maybe someone at the company is reading this would be willing to issue a refund as a sign of goodwill or exchange it for something else entirely?

I expected really great things after researching many products and reading these reviews. I've worn other girdles in the past and know that compression garments aren't meant to be comfortable, but I was disappointed with how this wears. I'm an hourglass shape and I ordered the size recommended for me, but the girdle folded in oddly at my waist. The seams really dug into my skin and left painful marks. It's way too noticeable to wear under clothes as well. With these issues, I wasn't able to wear it but a couple hours a day. Even so, my stomach did shrink some, and I'm back in my pre-pregnancy jeans after gaining 30 lbs while pregnant.

My binder allowed me to comfortably play with her and do my day to day activities. Within just one week post-op I am already ready for my X-Small binder!! HUGE difference in just one week!

Rating must have for post partum -4/25/2014
Reviewed by: Katherine Monterosa from Montpelier, VT.

I just gave birth to my first baby a week ago and started to wear the bellefit corset 2 days after the birth. It helped immeasureably with the weird squishy 'my guts are going to fall out' feeling in my abdomen. With the corset on, I was still able to use my ab muscles, but I felt much more secure and comfortable as a result of the compression. The garment itself is really sturdy and seems to be put together very well. I also like how it has the option to snap at the bottom- I didn't use this at first due to the fact that I had a few stitches and wanted to err on the side of caution, but the corset still stayed in place without the snaps. I had a small abdominal separation and it is almost closed after wearing the corset for just a few days, though ymmv. Size wise, my stomach is nearly flat again. A week after birth, I had no idea this was possible, but I am pretty thrilled about it. My one issue was that the sizing chart on the website recommended that I get a larger size than was actually good for me, but the customer service is excellent and resolved my issue within 24 hours. Yes, you can find cheaper options out there, but for the quality of the garment, the customer service, and the actual comfort it provided, it was absolutely worth it for me. I will be recommending this product to my friends in the future, and if I have another baby, I will be using this again.

As soon as I started wearing it my stomach began to visibly shrink, a little bit every day. 6 weeks after my C-section and I've already been wearing all my pre-pregnancy clothes for a while. I gained about 30 lbs during pregnancy and pretty much have already lost almost all of it, except the last 3-4 lbs. I'm absolutely convinced that it has everything to do with the girdle! Even ladies at my doctor's office are shocked how good I look and how one can't even tell I had a baby a little over a month ago. Not to mention that in the beginning when everything was still painful after the surgery, it was a lot easier to move around with the girdle on because it really does provide serious support for the muscles and the entire area. This is definitely a must for every new Mom because it significantly speeds up your postpartum recovery. I am recommending this one to all my friends! And did I mention that they have the best customer service? Bellefit rocks! 03/06/2014

This was recommended to me by my girlfriend and I'm not sure what I would have done without it. I was pregnant with twins and started wearing this several days after coming home from the hospital. Two weeks later I've already seen a drastic difference not only in my stomach but my entire mid-section. The product is very well-made and gave me the support I needed after the C-section throughout my entire core. I've gotten many compliments about how quickly I'm rebounding to my normal size and I would highly recommend this to anyone!

I had an unexpected c-section 3 weeks ago and for the first week after surgery was very tentative to move or resume daily activities. I ordered the c-section recovery corset to help me feel more confident that I could care for my newborn without further injuring myself. I am very happy with the comfort and overall compression this product has provided. I wear it all day and night and have had no issue with it being uncomfortable. I would highly recommend for anyone
Rating THE BEST GIRDLE OUT THERE! LOST WEIGHT RIGHT AWAY! LOVE THIS! -4/2/2014
Reviewed by: Tara Klein from Queens, NY.

I bought this since so many of my friends highly recommended this girdle only. I have tried the belly bandit with my last pregnancy and it did nothing! The Bellefit corset is SO much better! I packed it in my hospital bag and immediately after my vaginal birth, I put it on. My stomach felt secure and all the muscles went back right away. It has been 2 weeks since I have had this on ( i wear it all day and night). And my stomach is almost flat again! There are many girdles out there...but this one is by FAR the BEST!!! Also-- the customer service was so nice in helping me figure out my size and helping me use the girdle. I also ordered the tighty wifey tank top which you can wear with the girdle. I give this product an A++++++++++++++++ 04/2/14

Reviewed by: Olga Romero from Dover, DE.

I am a mom of (boy/girl) twins and while I was pregnant I was vigorously searching for a product that would help me to get my figure back. After much research and thought, I went with the Bellefit Corset. Loved it the moment I put it on (3 days post delivery). It is very comfortable and helped with my pain. I had noticeable results within a week. When I went to my 1 week check up, I had lost 15 pounds. By the time I went to my 6 week check up, I was already back down to my pre-pregnancy weight. I highly recommend this product and encourage you to purchase your garment before your delivery. The other positive is that the customer service representatives are extremely helpful.

Loved this after my c section. It made me so much more comfortable. I started wearing it the day after my daughter was born instead of waiting till I left the hospital because it helped keep everything from "sloshing around" (my husbands description. It especially helped me sleep better, which is so valuable as a new parent. I wish it had a third row of closures.

This is my second c-section and I wish that I knew about your product with my first! I started wearing the corset 2 days after my surgery and I don't take it off except to shower. The corset makes all of my every day activities much easier and A LOT less painful! I lift my daughter, do laundry, cook dinner, wash dishes, and do EVERYTHING with it. I was making such good progress I actually had to buy the small size and start wearing that after 2 weeks!! My daughter is only 3 weeks old (DOB 3/4/14) and my stomach is flat already! THANK YOU Bellefit!!!!!!

I would recommend this corset to any postpartum woman and have. I have seen fantastic results with regards to tightening up my stomach area and the corset provided back support much needed after a c-section birth. When having a c-section your stomach muscle are pull through the front of your body and as a result your back muscle have to overcompensate for your stomach muscles. This girdle has provided the support very much needed but also help me slim down so it's a win..win!!

Reviewed by: Barbara Velasquez from Cairo, GA.

I was 145 lbs before becoming pregnant with my baby and went up to 169 by my 38th week. I bought the Corset Medium becuase its what the sizing guide calculated and I wore it the day I got home from the hosipital and by my 3rd week postpartum I was already in my regular clothes and wearing it at its tightest hook!!!! I had to call customer service and ask whether I had stretched it out but the scale didn't lie and neither did the mirror! I couldn't believe it but I needed the small and im actually a 2 jean sizes smaller than what I was before I even became pregnant. Im so impressed with my results that I share with everyone how great this product and I hope this review helps!

I loved the idea of wearing a corset after having my baby because I have always been a fan of waist training and when I read that Jessica Alba wore one after her baby, I was so excited to wear it and get back to shape as soon as possible. I started at 125 before pregnancy and went up to 150 and I was able to wear the Medium right away and in 4 weeks I was 125 again and I was able to work out and feel like my old self! I wore the Tighty Wifey as well to work out and even wore together. Its amazing!

Rating Best invention since the epidural! -3/7/2014
Reviewed by: Johnette O'Neil from San Diego, CA.

I wore both the Medium and Large in the Corset. I gained 58lbs in my pregnancy and I needed both because once I got home from the hospital, I couldn't hook up the Medium all the way so the large was the one I wore first, I was in the Medium within 3 weeks and I couldn't be more impressed with not only the garment, with women in general and the fact that we can change back to our shape so fast with this girdle. Please use this product if you want to recover faster and a lot less pain!
