There are a number of situations where a stomach binder brace is a useful tool. A binder brace for the stomach applies compression to your low-back as well as the upper and lower abdomen.
These actions have a number of benefits that make this plus-size belly wrap great for treating a variety of things, including:
Abdominal muscle strain or cramping
Weak abdominal muscles
Diastasis recti (stomach muscle separation)
Some examples of post-surgical care include after liposuction, hysterectomy or tummy tuck surgery, postnatal (after pregnancy), especially if you had a Cesarean section or multiple birth delivery, or following hernia surgery (see more hernia supports).
Regardless of what this plus-size ab binder 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.
Plus, the discreet white color and low-profile fit of the tummy wrap for large people means it easily fits beneath your clothes.
Special faggoted stitching between the panels allows this binder to conform to your body shape, making it comfortable to sit, stand, or lay down in. The stitching also prevents this abdominal belt for large people from rolling or bunching up.
Its single fastener is easy to use and can be applied anywhere on this surgical abdominal binder 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.
The comfortable compression this extra-large ab binder provides help reduce swelling and boost blood circulation. This, in turn, encourages healing, while also protecting your incision site after surgery. And 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 abdominal supports after surgery, as splinting is not right for everyone.
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.
Who can wear it? Available in sizes XL through 4XL, fitting a wide range of body circumferences, so anyone from average to overweight and morbidly obese adults can wear this abdominal band.
How do I know what size to get? Using a fabric tape measure, stand up and measure the circumference of your abdomen at its widest point. To get the most accurate measurements, we recommend having a close family member or friend assist you. Refer to our sizing graphic in the photos above to choose the correct size.
What conditions does this stomach brace treat? This belly binder helps treat and provide support for lower back pain, hernias, bladder problems, obesity-related pain, and abdominal muscle strain / injury. The splint also promotes healing postpartum or following hysterectomy, C section, gastroplasty, liposuction, or abdominoplasty surgery.
How do I put it on? Unfold the abdominal binder and lay it out to identify the top vs. bottom. The slightly wider end is the bottom, this will sit on your hips. Position the binder behind your body making sure the fastener strip is facing inward. Wrap the binder around your core and secure with fastener once you’ve reached a nice, snug fit. For some, it may be easier to lay down on top of the flat binder and then wrap it around yourself. If it is still too difficult, have somebody help you apply the binder.
Can I wear this binder over my shirt? Yes.
How tall is this support? 12” tall.
What material is this brace made of? Made of latex-free, premium panel elastic and a fastener.
When should I wear it? This abdominal binder can be comfortably worn all day while sitting, standing, and during physical activity. However, you should consult with your doctor before wearing any abdominal support for extended periods of time, such as while sleeping.
Washing Instructions: Hand wash in warm water with mild soap. Allow binder to air dry completely before reapplying. Do not use bleach or high temperatures to wash or dry.
Unisex design means this abdominal binder can be worn by men or women.
Faggoted stitching between panels prevents the belt from rolling up.

Exactly as advertised. Works perfectly.
I haven’t received it so I don’t know how I like it. I’m disappointed that it has taken so long.
Very good. The Velcro is more difficult to separate, more so than one I have had for a year or two. The belt does a good job of stabilizing my abdominal hernia.
I had to add a flap of material to end so when i wear it i have the material next to my skin around my healing hernia scar instead of elastic irritating my healing area. Super grabby velcro holds is good but if you let it accidentally touch anyplace on binder you do not want it to stick to it is hard to unstick! I recommend covering up velcro with paper towel or cling wrap when not wearing binder.
It is the most comfortable binder I’ve worn in the past ten years. It gives me the support I need
