Now that your baby has arrived (congratulations), you’re probably ready to get rid of the post-baby belly – but that’s easier said than done. Shrinkx Belly goes to work instantly to restore your pre-baby figure. It uses triple compression to help you lose inches fast so you can get back into favorite your pre-pregnancy clothes sooner. Start wearing it as soon as you are comfortable after delivery, and be prepared to collect plenty of compliments on how great you look.
Shrinkx Belly is an OB/GYN recommended triple-compression belly wrap, designed to reduce swelling, expedite weight loss, and to help support your core abdominal muscles while you recover from the rigors of childbirth. Splinting and compression are commonly prescribed after abdominal surgery or for abdominal support.
Shrinkx Belly was designed specifically for moms to support their recovering muscles after delivery while simultaneously helping to shed pounds and inches by reducing swelling. Its full torso triple compression lets you customize your fit (and customize the location of the compression) to ensure comfort and help you lose weight from your belly and waist. The built-in boning provides lower back support and improves posture for breastfeeding. The breathable, comfortable latex-free mesh fabric gently conforms to your body’s shape, and the lightweight band makes Shrinkx Belly easy to wear under clothing.
For centuries, the practice of postpartum binding has been common throughout Europe, Asia, and Latin America. Compressing the abdominal area after childbirth helps speed up weight loss and recovery by reducing swelling, supporting core abdominal muscles, and helping the uterus return to its original size. During pregnancy, the muscles and organs of the abdomen have stretched or shifted to make room for your baby. After childbirth, this space is suddenly unoccupied, leading to weakened muscles and swelling while your body returns to normal. Shrinkx Belly provides customizable compression and support for your entire abdomen, allowing you to wrap in the way that is most comfortable and convenient for you – all while looking and feeling great.

How to use Shrinkx Belly Postpartum Wrap
To get the best results, start wearing Shrinkx Belly as much as possible (day and night) once you are comfortable after delivery. Continue wearing Shrinkx Belly until you’re back to your pre-baby figure or you don’t need additional abdominal support anymore – for most moms, this means somewhere around 4 to 6 weeks. Be prepared to receive plenty of compliments about how quickly you got your body back!
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.
- S/M: fits belly measuring 25 – 44”
- L/XL: fits belly measuring 45 – 52”
If in doubt, order the Small/Medium. (How often do you hear that?)
How Shrinkx Belly Works
After delivery, your stomach is bloated with water and excess air which were used to nurture your baby in the womb. Postpartum belly wraps help compress your abdomen and uterus allowing them to contract to their original size. They also improve circulation, which aids in reducing swelling. Belly wraps can also assist in recovery from Diastatis Recti, a phenomenon in which the abdominal muscles separate and the connective tissue between them is thinned and stretched. This condition affects 80-99% of pregnant women. A well-designed belly wrap can function as a splint in order to help heal abdominal muscles and assist them in returning to their normal positions. In the event of a C-section delivery, belly wraps offer an additional benefit because the compression to the wound location can help to ensure that it heals quickly and correctly.
Abdominal wraps help women recovering from a vaginal delivery or a C-section with their posture, abdominal support, and self-confidence. A study published in the International Journal of Medical, Health, Biomedical, Bioengineering and Pharmaceutical Engineering found that postpartum abdominal binders worn for 6 weeks starting on the second day following delivery provided support to stretched ligaments and muscles, supported the spine, and improved posture. The study also found that abdominal binders decreased waist circumference and increased abdominal muscle strength by holding muscles at the right tension and preventing them from becoming flaccid and expanding.
Shrinkx Belly uses triple-point compression to help move excess fluid out of the tissues, resulting in less swelling and bloating and more weight loss around your middle. When worn as directed, it can help your uterus to return to its pre-pregnancy size. As an added bonus, the built-in boning also provides extra support and helps you maintain proper posture for breastfeeding.

When can I start wearing Shrinkx Belly Postpartum Belly Wrap?
You can start wearing the Shrinkx Belly postpartum 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.
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.*
