Frequently Asked Questions

When can I start wearing the binder?
Our Postpartum Binder can be worn a day or two after giving birth (some have found it helpful to bring to the hospital). Consult with your OB/GYN for guidance, when you are unsure when to start wearing your binder.

How long should I wear the binder?
Most patients usually wear the binder for 4 to 8 weeks after giving birth.

Will the binder prevent me from breastfeeding?
Not at all. Our binder is designed to fit comfortably under the breast and not roll up. It will not interfere with breastfeeding. If you feel your binder does interfere, check your sizing.

Can I wash my binder?
Yes, but in order to preserve the quality and compression of your garment, follow our simple guidelines:

  • Before washing your binder, engage the hook and loop closure.
  • Wash in cold water with mild detergent.
  • Wash by hand or in machine on gentle cycle only.
  • Do NOT use bleach.
  • Dry flat. Do not tumble dry. Do not iron.

Failure to properly care for your garment can cause loss of compression and performance.

Can this binder also be used as a post-surgical binder?
Yes, definitively. While we designed our binder especially for postpartum moms, our binder will offer support and comfort after a wide range of abdominal surgeries such as C-section, hysterectomy, liposuction, tummy tuck and gastroplasty.

What is my binder made from?
All our binders are made of 65% polyester, 19% nylon and 16% spandex. ALL OUR BINDERS ARE MADE WITHOUT ANY NATURAL RUBBER LATEX and are safe for people with Latex Allergies.
