How do I wash my Belly Bandit?

Your Belly Bandit® should be hand washed. Yes....we said hand wash! Please make sure to wash it in cold water with mild soap and air or line-dry. Do not wring this in order to remove excess water as it may damage the strength of the piece. Please do not use any bleach or fabric softeners. Washing in hot water or drying with an electric or gas dryer may also damage the product and cause shrinkage. Drying process can take up to 12 hours. Due to the continuous periods of time you are advised to wear the Belly Bandit® it is recommended to purchase two. Having two will enable you to always have a freshly clean one available while the other is being washed.

Can I wear a used Belly Bandit?

We do not recommend buying or wearing a used Belly Bandit® for 2 simple reasons: Hygiene and effectiveness. It’s not hygienic to share this type of garment and once its worn its created to conform to your body shape and curves. Anytime is a band has been worn for an extended amount of time (and possibly washed) it will not have the same effectiveness as on your body. Depending on how it was cared for it may lose some elasticity.
