Used by celebs like Jessica Alba to get their pre-pregnancy bodies back, the Belly Bandit is an abdominal compression wrap to be worn postpartum. Research has shown that wraps like these help reduce the swelling of the uterus, decrease bloating caused by water retention, support your legs & back and provide additional comfort and support while breastfeeding. The Belly Bandit is also great post c-section.
The Belly Bandit is designed to wear under your clothes and is smooth, comfortable, and tagless. It should be handwashed and worn 6-8 weeks post-pregnancy as much as possible for ideal results.
Belly Dance carries the eco-friendly Bamboo Belly Bandit because it is softer, anti-microbial, moisture wicking and is three times more durable than cotton.
TIPS FOR SIZING YOUR BELLY BANDIT
If you are purchasing a Belly Bandit early on in your pregnancy best rule of thumb is to go up 1 to 2 band sizes from your pre-pregnancy size.
In the eighth month many women will be the same size as they will be post delivery. Simply measure the circumference of your waist starting at your belly button. Choose the corresponding band for your size.
Just prior to delivery simply subtract 3 to 5 inches from your waist measurement. Select the corresponding band for that size.
If you purchase your Belly Bandit after you give birth, simply choose the corresponding band for your waist size.
