Postpartum Recovery Garments

Postpartum Recovery Garments

Postpartum recovery garments are designed to optimize recovery with comfortable compression on the abdomen, back and thighs. Wearing a postpartum recovery garment after giving birth:

  • Shortens recovery time
  • Reduces swelling, soreness and bruising
  • Improves skin tone
  • Aids wound healing and minimizes infections
  • Tightens and tones belly, hips, waist, pelvis, and lower back

The Motif brand garment that we offer has a side zipper, making it easy to wear whether you give birth naturally or have a C-Section. Lightweight, breathable Micro Net fabric fits closely but comfortably to give you a seamless silhouette.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When do I wear a postpartum recovery garment?
A: For optimal healing and recovery, postpartum recovery garments should be worn, even during sleep, within the first week following delivery up to approximately four weeks.

Q: Should this garment be tight?
A: This item is a compression product and, therefore, should be snug- or close-fitting without being uncomfortable.

Q: How do I decide on the right size for me?
A: If you are unsure which size is right for you and your insurance plan covers more than one postpartum recovery garment, you may want to order two different sizes. We are always available to answer any questions you might have to help you make the best sizing decision for you.

Q: How do I use the restroom in this?
A: A split crotch design makes trips to the restroom more convenient.
