Pregnancy Support sizing guideline: When 7or 8 months pregnant, consider that you will be growing by 3 to 5 inches until your 8th and 9th month. Take your measurement 2 inches below your belly button around the buttocks area, not up at the waist. Note: Please be aware that your bikini belt may stretch while being worn during pregnancy. Continue using the belt after delivery, whether vaginally or by caesarean. If you need to shrink the Recovery belt (not the Support Strap) wash in hot water, and/ or dry on high if you need further shrinkage. The best support immediately after a vaginal birth is with our Hem-It-In Belt which has a stronger inner elastic system. This belt may also be used for additional support 3 weeks after a C-Section.
Scheduled C-Section sizing guideline:
The best time to measure is while you are 9 months pregnant, and If you?re very close to your due date, a general guideline to follow is; all around body measure at 2" below belly button-subtract 3 to 5 inches (8cm-13cm) from your belly measurement, during 9th month.
Unscheduled C-Section sizing guideline: If you find yourself needing our C-Section Bikini Belt for an unplanned caesarean, simply measure around your tummy; 2 inches (5cm) below your belly button.
Your Recovery belt is designed with 6 to 9 inches of adjustability to help you transition through your recovery and back to your unique pre-pregnancy shape.
