Bengkung Belly Bindings

Bengkung Belly Binding Wrap | Yellow Pink Red | Muslin Cotton | 17 yards x 9" | Sewn Raw Edge


  • Details
    This wrap comes in 14 yards or 17 yards. The Bengkung Belly Wrap is dyed in a tie die style or gradient die of colors of your choice. It has hemmed edges to minimize fraying but the edge is left raw for that natural look. The cotton muslin can be machine washed and dried. Made from 100% cotton muslin, all wraps are handmade 9 inches wide. They’re just wide enough to fit well around the hips and back and unlike other materials they won't roll or bunch up.

    The wrap can be used during pregnancy to help support the heavy tummy, prevent diastasis recti, as well as relieve pain in the round ligaments and lower back. Then use the wrap after the baby's birthday. Postpartum belly binding with this traditional Malaysian practice utilizes the pressure of bound fabric to pull in the hips and repair diastasis recti.

    Gradient Die: Yellow to Pink to Red

    Note on washing: I recommend line drying your bind since 14 and 17 yards of fabric turns into a wrinkly, knotty mess in the dryer. Wear it over a tank or shirt and you'll have no need to wash often.

    Length Options:
    14 yard length bind fits a hip dimension up to 37”
    17 yard length bind fits a hip dimension up to 47"

    Q: When can I wrap?

    A: Anytime, anywhere! Women, men, and even children can wrap.

    Women should be wrapped as soon they can after birth, ideally on day five postpartum. The belly bind should be worn daily for 10-12 hours a day for at least 40 days or longer. Often women who use a belly bind after birth return to their own pre-pregnancy size in 6-8 weeks.

    Had a cesarean birth? Women should wait at least 2-3 weeks until the incision is mostly healed before they are wrapped.

    You may find it easy and comfortable to wrap at night while sleeping or during the day while doing household chores. Many women even wear our wraps out of the home
