Belly Bands FAQ guide, can assist in answering those pre-purchase questions and determine if our compression garments are a good fit for your individual needs and expectations

What is a Belly Band

The original Australian Made Belly Band is an elasticized abdominal compression binder/splint that encircles the abdomen. Its purpose is to manage pain, while providing abdominal, pelvic and spinal support for both women and men, including mum-to-be.

Belly Band Features

The Belly Bands are manufactured using our own unique brand of elastic fabric. Designed to allow the Velcro fasteners to attach securely anywhere on the garment. This ensures the wearer a more flexible fit and the individual straps allows the garment to contour easily to the body for a better result.

  • 70% Cotton, 25% Spandex, 5% Polyester (Latex Free)
  • 2 x Colours; Black & Bisque
  • 3 x Widths; 10cm, 18cm and 25cm

How to Use the Belly Band

When to wear   

The Belly Bands can be worn during pregnancy, postpartum and after surgery when abdominal, spinal or hip support is required. 

      How long to wear?

      For best results, it's recommended to wear as soon possible, once you have the Okay from your doctor or health professional after childbirth and surgery and continue wearing for at least 8-12 weeks.

      How to put on the garment

      Please view our video for easier instruction and tips.

      What size do I need?

      Simply choose the size you are currently in clothing.

      Petite (4-8) | Standard (10-16) | Large (16-24)

      *If you are in between size always go for the smaller as the band can stretch.

      Can you wear next to skin?

      Yes! If its comfortable to do so, otherwise wear over a tight top if sensitive on the skin.

      Can I sleep in it?

      Yes! Fit the garment so that it is comfortable and snug and won’t move around as you sleep.

      Is it comfortable when sitting 

      Yes! But do use at your discretion as some people may find it uncomfortable or folds down when sitting or bending especially when pregnant or after surgery. * If you have an office job or sitting for long periods of time you may wish to purchase the twin pack.

      Will it work for me?
