Bengkung belly binding is the traditional Malaysian art of wrapping a postpartum women's belly for physical support and to help hasten the recovery process after childbirth. Used in the first few days up to 6 months postpartum, this belly binding technique uses a long strip of muslin to wrap around around the abdomen from the hips to the rib cage. The advantage of using the Bengkung belly binding over a shop bought girdle is that it is infinitely adjustable, beautiful and fits most women. The Bengkung belly bind can even be worn if you have had a c-section (worn 2-4 weeks post c-section) as it still gives you all the benefits outlined below.

Assists in abdominal wall retraction and diastasis recti recovery.
