We recommend that you talk to your health professional about the use of compression garments – any information on this website should be considered general information and should not be considered medical advice.


Your Belly Band may be worn next to your skin however, if you notice sensitivity to the elastic material, the band can be worn over clothing.

Your Belly Band may be worn at night so long as it is fitted snugly so that it won’t roll or move during the night.

Most people are able to sit comfortably in their Belly Band however all bodies are different and some people find that any compression garments are not comfortable to sit in and may roll. Compression garments can take some getting used to. Give yourself time to heal if required and time to find the right adjustment that suits. As your body changes through growth, healing and other developments, adjust your garment to suit.

Please seek advice from your medical professional should you be unsure about the use of a compression garment in your situation.


Hand wash in warm water with a mild fabric detergent – do not tumble dry or bleach. Dry flat or on line in shade.

Do not iron.

Please note:

Elastic fabric may stretch with use.

Velcro connects to fabric securely and fluffing of the fabric is normal and won’t affect adhesion of Velcro.

As each band is hand cut, you may find the odd stray elastic thread – it is fine to snip these.
