Bamboo Charcoal BenefitsDon’t be fooled by belly wraps that boast bamboo. Bamboo by itself has no special properties. But bamboo charcoal – that’s a different story!
Women have been wrapping their postpartum bellies for centuries to help their bodies heal after childbirth. Compression helps eliminate excess fluid from the tissues, resulting in less swelling and bloating. (Gotta love that!) Shrinkx® Belly Bamboo Charcoal Postpartum Belly Wrap builds on this centuries-old tradition but with a new twist by adding bamboo charcoal fiber technology to give you even better results.
Bamboo charcoal is produced by burning bamboo for up to a week at almost 1500° F. The resulting charcoal is ground into fine nano-particles, fused with polyester, and spun into fiber. Bamboo charcoal has an unusual property, in that it naturally emits far infrared light. As infrared light interacts with your body heat, it helps to increase blood flow, speed healing, and reduce swelling. This therapeutic effect is above and beyond the beneficial effects of compression alone.Shrinkx Belly Bamboo Charcoal Belly Wrap is available at these fine retailers
Before delivery, measure the circumference of your belly. (Repeat after me: it’s just a number … it’s just a number.) Subtract 3 to 5 inches from this measurement to determine Shrinkx Belly sizing. After delivery use your current belly measurements to determine the right size for you.

How is Shrinkx Belly Bamboo Charcoal Wrap different from the original Shrinkx Belly Wrap?Both models are adjustable Velcro® wraps that use three-point compression on the belly to help slim your waist and reduce swelling.* Compression, when done right, works really well; it’s been used in postpartum body wrapping practices for centuries. But if you want to take it up a notch, give our new Bamboo Charcoal model a try. It uses breakthrough bamboo charcoal fiber technology, which reacts with your body heat to increase blood flow.* Increased blood flow, in turn, helps to reduce swelling and inflammation while you recover from childbirth.I have heard that the Bamboo Charcoal Wrap is hot. What’s the deal with that?Bamboo charcoal reacts with body heat, acting as a sort of semiconductor to stimulate greater blood flow. You’ll know that your Shrinkx Belly Bamboo Charcoal Wrap is working because you’ll feel the heat (in a good way). Does regular bamboo fiber work as well as bamboo charcoal?No. Don’t be bamboozled by other bamboo belly wraps! Only bamboo charcoal contains natural therapeutic properties. What is the fabric content of Shrinkx Belly Bamboo Charcoal?Shrinkx Belly Bamboo Charcoal contains 40% polyester, 24% rubber, 6% rayon, 4% nylon, and 16% bamboo charcoal yarn.Is the Shinkx Belly Bamboo Charcoal Wrap washable?Yes. Hand wash in cold water and lay flat to dry.Will washing diminish the effectiveness of the bamboo charcoal fiber? No, but remember the Belly Wrap should only be hand washed in cold water and laid flat to dry. (Don’t be seduced by your washing machine’s “hand wash” cycle. It’s really not the same.)When can I start wearing Shrinkx Belly Postpartum Bamboo Charcoal Belly Wrap?You can start wearing the Shrinkx Belly Wrap immediately after delivery. For best results, wear it as much as possible both day and night. Make sure the wrap fits tightly around your waist; use the side straps to customize compression on the front of the abdomen.Is Shrinkx Belly Bamboo Charcoal still effective if I don’t start using it soon after my baby is born?Yes! The combination of compression plus bamboo charcoal fiber technology can be helpful at any time, not just after having a baby.*Can Shrinkx Belly be worn after C-section?Yes, but not as immediately as after a vaginal delivery. Wait until you can do so comfortably. (Don’t worry, you’ll get there.) To help speed your C-section recovery, you may also want to consider C-Panty, our after C-section recovery underwear. C-Panty speeds recovery and helps reduce swelling, pain, and scarring after C-section.*What is the difference between Shrinkx Belly and Shrinkx Hips?Shrinkx Belly is a postpartum belly wrap. Shrinkx Hips is the original postpartum hip wrap designed exclusively to narrow hips after childbirth. Can you wear Shrinkx Belly and Shrinkx Hips together?Yes! Each product works on a different part of your body and they can worn be at the same time. Due to the hormone relaxin (yes, it’s really called that), you have eight weeks after delivery to take advantage of narrowing your hips. What is the difference between a postpartum girdle and a postpartum belly band?Postpartum girdles (similar to the girdles your grandmother used to wear) are considered shape wear. They smooth the postpartum body but they do not provide the same level of compression as a postpartum belly band.
