The Angelica recovery garment by Body after baby provides comfortable, breathable support and compression to strained postpartum abdominal muscles, while also providing light support to the hip and pelvic region.
Body After Baby Angelica Recovery Garment
The Angelica Body after baby garment – providing postpartum support
We recommend the Body After Baby recovery garment to women who would like to reduce their DRAM (Diastasis Recti), require light pelvic/hip support, need to reduce fluid, or who would simply like to support their abdominal and back muscles post pregnancy. The Body after Baby garments offer a moderate level of compression in a comfortable, breathable, and discreet alternative to a more rigid belly wrap.
Body after baby Angelica recovery garment overview:
The Angelica postpartum recovery garment by ‘Body after baby’ is designed to be worn in the first 6 weeks after a natural/vaginal delivery. This garment will help support the muscles, ligaments, and tissue that have been subjected to the strains of pregnancy and labor. Since this is a high waist product, it covers the entire abdominal area.
What we love about this garment:
The fabric feels great! It’s lightweight, breathable and soft and seamless against the skin. The length of the garment legs is great. The leg section does not provide any compression, but makes the garment comfortable to wear, without being unsuitable for wearing under skirts or shorts. Having the option to attach or detach the shoulder straps is also very helpful. This is by far one of the most breathable feeling compression garments we have tried so far.

If purchasing your garment post delivery, measure the smallest part of your waist (typically above your belly button)
If purchasing while pregnant – choose a size based on your pre-pregnancy pant size. If you have gained more than 15kg during your pregnancy, please choose the next size up to ensure a proper fit.
If your measurements go over 2 sizes, choose the size which corresponds with your hip measurement.
