Sizing Your Shrinkx Belly Charcoal Postpartum Belly Wrap

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 – 43”
L/XL: fits belly measuring 44-52”

Bamboo Charcoal Benefits

Don’t be fooled by belly wraps that boast bamboo. Bamboo by itself has no special properties. But bamboo charcoal – that’s a different story!
Women have been wrapping their postpartum bellies for centuries to help their bodies heal after childbirth. Compression helps eliminate excess fluid from the tissues, resulting in less swelling and bloating. (Gotta love that!) Shrinkx® Belly Bamboo Charcoal Postpartum Belly Wrap builds on this centuries-old tradition but with a new twist by adding bamboo charcoal fiber technology to give you even better results.


Yes! But you need a special wrap designed exclusively for the hips like our patented Shrinkx Hips.  

Real Science: Bamboo Charcoal - Not Your Garden Variety Bamboo

Bamboo charcoal is produced by burning bamboo for up to a week at almost 1500° F. The resulting charcoal is ground into fine nano-particles, fused with polyester, and spun into fiber. Bamboo charcoal has an unusual property, in that it naturally emits far infrared light. As infrared light interacts with your body heat, it helps to increase blood flow, speed healing, and reduce swelling. This therapeutic effect is above and beyond the beneficial effects of compression alone.


Both models are adjustable Velcro® wraps that use three-point compression on the belly to help slim your waist and reduce swelling.* Compression, when done right, works really well; it’s been used in postpartum body wrapping practices for centuries. But if you want to take it up a notch, give our new Bamboo Charcoal model a try. It uses breakthrough bamboo charcoal fiber technology, which reacts with your body heat to increase blood flow.* Increased blood flow, in turn, helps to reduce swelling and inflammation while you recover from childbirth.

Bamboo charcoal reacts with body heat, acting as a sort of semiconductor to stimulate greater blood flow. You’ll know that your Shrinkx Belly Bamboo Charcoal Wrap is working because you’ll feel the heat (in a good way). 

No. Don’t be bamboozled by other bamboo belly wraps! Only bamboo charcoal contains natural therapeutic properties. 

Shrinkx Belly Bamboo Charcoal contains 40% Polyester, 24% Rubber, 16% Rayon made from Bamboo Charcoal, 14% Nylon, 6% Rayon.

Yes. Hand wash in cold water and lay flat to dry.

No, but remember the Belly Wrap should only be hand washed in cold water and laid flat to dry. (Don’t be seduced by your washing machine’s “hand wash” cycle. It’s really not the same.)

You can start wearing the Shrinkx 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.

Yes! The combination of compression plus bamboo charcoal fiber technology can be helpful at any time, not just after having a baby.*

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.*

Shrinkx Belly is a postpartum belly wrap. Shrinkx Hips is the original postpartum hip wrap designed exclusively to narrow hips after childbirth. 

Yes! Each product works on a different part of your body and they can worn be at the same time. Due to the hormone relaxin (yes, it’s really called that), you have eight weeks after delivery to take advantage of narrowing your hips.  

Postpartum girdles (similar to the girdles your grandmother used to wear) are considered shape wear. They smooth the postpartum body but they do not provide the same level of compression as a postpartum belly band.
