The 5 Top Rated Features of This Plus Size Abdominal Binder
Made of Breathable & Comfortable Elastic
Regardless of what this plus-size corset is used for, you can be assured it will provide comfortable support and compression. The extra-large abdominal binder is constructed of premium-panel elastic, with soft plush backing on the inside. The discreet white color and low-profile fit of the belly support band means it discreetly fits under your clothes.
Provides Slimming Effect
Using a hemstitch technique between the 4 panels allows this binder to conform to your body shape, making it comfortable to sit, stand, or lay down in. The contoured stitching also prevents this belly binder from rolling or bunching up.
Easy, Adjustable Compression
With a single fastener, this surgical binder is easy to use and can be applied easily for custom support and compression. Many users describe the flexible fit as being so comfortable you forget you’re even wearing an abdominal wrap. It also helps hold in excess or hanging stomach fat like a girdle, providing a slimming effect to your belly.
Promotes Blood & Oxygen Flow to Encourage Healing
The compression this bariatric belt provides, helps reduce swelling and boost blood circulation. This, in turn, encourages healing, while also protecting your incision site after surgery. The quicker you heal, the sooner you can return to a mobile lifestyle, further advancing your recovery process. But remember, it’s important to consult with your doctor or physical therapist about using this surgical binder after surgery, as splinting is not right for everyone.
Helps Diminish Back Pain
In addition to speeding up your recovery process, the compression also helps transfer stress away from your lower back, diminishing back pain and protecting against further damage. The 12-inch abdominal support also promotes better posture, which in and of itself can help ease pain.

Abdominal Wrap Doubles as a Hernia Belt
As mentioned above, several customers have found relief using this brace for hernia-related struggles. The 4-paneled compression of this plus-size belt is ideal for hernia support. Many customers purchase our Hernia Pad as an add-on to this hernia girdle to target and treat umbilical belly button hernias or other troubling abdominal hernias.
If hernia surgery is the route you take, this surgical binder and abdominal support will protect you even after the hernia is removed (see more hernia supports). With premium-panel elastic, this abdominal bandage wrap will comfortably compress your stomach to increase blood flow and oxygen, ultimately speeding up recovery and healing after surgery. Again, always be sure to check with your doctor before using after surgery.
