Abdominal Binder Support

Any surgery of the abdominal region can be traumatic, both physiologically and psychologically, and can take time to recover from. Wearing the unisex Abdominal Binder Support, made of high-quality ventilated elastic for an intimate fit, can be a great way to aid your recovery because it supports your abdomen, helps to maintain abdominal pressure and can even make breathing easier.

Who Is This Abdominal Binder Support Suitable For?

The Abdominal Binder Support is 16.5cm (6.5") deep, and offers strong but comfortable support for your lower back and abdomen. It can be used for a range of conditions involving pain and discomfort in the lower back and abdomen, but is especially ideal for the following conditions:

  • Diastasis recti
  • Post-surgical recovery
  • Post-trauma recovery
  • Ventral hernia

Can I Use the Abdominal Binder After Surgery?

Yes, this abdominal binder is designed to provide outstanding support and pain relief following abdominal surgery or trauma. The abdominal binder is especially suitable for use after:

  • Bariatric surgery
  • Caesarean section
  • Exploratory laparotomy
  • Hysterectomy
  • Spinal surgery
  • Tummy tuck

What Are the Benefits of Using an Abdominal Binder After Surgery?

Wearing an abdominal binder is an excellent solution for anyone recovering from surgery. An abdominal binder can:

  • Support your surgical incision
  • Relieve pain
  • Get you moving more
  • Reduce swelling

Is This Abdominal Binder Suitable for Recovery After Bariatric Surgery?

Yes, wearing an abdominal binder can be of great help after enduring a stomach surgery to lose weight. The extra support and compression the binder provides not only helps with discomfort, but can also reduce swelling, help the incision site, and even hold in your hanging skin after surgery.

Can I Use the Abdominal Binder Support Post Hysterectomy?

Yes, this abdominal binder is suitable for post-surgical recovery, including post-hysterectomy recovery. Wearing an abdominal binder may be used to speed up the recovery process, as it:

  • Holds your abdominal muscles together to relieve pain
  • Increases circulation at your surgical site to promote healing and decrease swelling
  • Makes physical activity more comfortable
  • Strengthens abdominal muscles
  • Improves respiratory functions

Will the Abdominal Binder Support Help with My Hernia?

Absolutely, the Abdominal Binder has proven itself to be exceptionally effective as a support for hernia. Our customers report excellent results from using this abdominal binder to make life with a hernia much easier and enjoyable.

Is the Abdominal Binder Support Suitable for Postpartum Recovery?

The Abdominal Binder Support can be worn after giving birth, including a C-section. If, however, you're trying to find the perfect post-pregnancy belly belt, we strongly recommend visiting our Belly Bandit range, in particular the Belly Bandit Original Post-Pregnancy Belly Belt. These products have been designed specifically to help women during and after pregnancy, and are more suited to your specific needs.

How Can an Abdominal Binder Help with Diastasis Recti?

Once the connective tissue gets stretched out, it can be difficult to rebuild your core strength and bring your muscles back together. Wearing an abdominal binder aids in holding the tissue, ligaments and bones in place to stabilise the pelvis. This allows you to begin exercising earlier in the recovery stage.

Can I Exercise with the Abdominal Binder?

Light exercise is of course possible with the Abdominal Binder, however, we would strongly advise contacting your consultant to work out a feasible plan. Medical problems like hernias can be anatagonised by certain exercises, and your consultant will know the best route for you.

Can I Wear the Abdominal Binder Support During Pregnancy?

No, we would advise against using the Abdominal Binder Support during pregnancy. If you're looking for a belly belt that is suitable as support during and after pregnancy, we recommend the Belly Bandit 2-in-1 Post-Pregnancy Belly Belt, or the Belly Bandit Upsie Belly Belt for support during pregnancy.

What Kind of Support Does the Abdominal Binder Offer?

The Abdominal Binder Support offers outstanding support for your lower back, abdomen and, to a certain degree, middle back. If you're looking for middle back support, the extra-deep version of the Abdominal Binder Support might be more suitable for you.

How Comfortable Is the Abdominal Binder Support?

This abdominal binder features a wraparound design with simple anterior touch-and-close fastening, fully bound edges and soft padded front panel. It is made of high quality ventilated elastic that ensures excellent breathability and comfort even when you wear the support for longer periods of time.

How Do I Find the Right Size for Me?

The Abdominal Binder Support is available in five different sizes, based on waist circumference. Please consult the table below for details and select the appropriate size for you from the drop-down menu above.

Size Waist Circumference
Small 22 - 28" (56 - 71cm)
Medium 27 - 33" (68 - 84cm)
Large 32 - 38" (81 - 96cm)
Extra Large 37 - 43" (94 - 109cm)
XX-Large 42 - 48" (107 - 122cm)

If you are between sizes, it's best to go a size up. A support that is too small for you will roll up and slide upwards, which is uncomfortable and inefficient.

Can I Wash the Abdominal Binder Support?

The abdominal binder is made predominantly from ventilated elastic, and we don't recommend machine washing it. You can, however, hand wash the binder with mild detergent in cold water, and hang it to dry.

Key Features and Benefits of the Abdominal Binder

  • High quality ventilated elastic with fully bound edges and soft padded front panel
  • Ideal for abdominal support following a range of surgical procedures
  • Provides light compression to increase circulation and promote healing
  • Simple anterior touch-and-close fastening for quick fitting
  • Depth: 16.5cm (6.5")

Good support

Used for a post operative distension. I don’t like wearing anything for too long but this gives reasonably comfortable good support useful when walking a distance or bending.

Excellent product
Friday, 13 September 2019  | 

Bought this binder for my abdominal hernia. Does the job extremely well and I feel more confident and secure with it. Very comfortable without losing ability to hold you in. No comparison to NHS binders they fob you of with.

Also the service is second to none. Bought one day delivered the next. Never known a company so efficient. My only slight niggle is if you have to return you have to pay for postage.
But all in all brilliant.
