Melissa's CommentsThis fits like the Bamboo Belly Bandit, but it’s slightly more rigid and just a pinch shorter. The cotton is 95% organic, so it works well for women who are very sensitive to other fabrics.
The Belly Bandit Original Postpartum Belly Wrap compresses your abdomen to help get your body back into its pre-childbirth shape. This supportive wrap helps to decrease water retention, reduce swelling in your uterus, and give support to your back and legs. There is an additional bonus for nursing mothers: it will help with your posture during feedings. The Belly Bandits smooth, light-weight construction is specifically designed to be worn comfortably under all your clothes and was made without any tags to irritate your skin. This basic uncovered version is the one that started the abdominal binding craze. The Original is simple, effective, economical and all-together cute.
- If you are buying one early in your pregnancy, it is usually best to go up 1-2 band sizes from your pre-pregnancy belly size.
- By the eighth month, many women will be at the same size as they will be post-birth. Just measure the width of your belly by going around the largest area. Choose the band made for this measurement.
- If you are near your due date, just subtract 3-5 inches from your belly measurement. Select the band for that size.
- If you are buying your Belly Bandit after you give birth, simply choose the band that corresponds to your current measurement.
