Our Story


"Here, let me get that for you," he gallantly offered. And so it began. After grabbing a bag of litter from an uppermost shelf, the chivalrous stock boy then added: "After all, you're pregnant."
Only...she wasn't.

She, by the way, is (and was) Lori Caden, one of the three sisters who founded Belly Bandit in 2008. 

Lori had recently delivered her first, and was struggling to regain her pre-baby body.
Enter sisters Jodi and Kari. Armed with an abundance of empathy, they began with a timeless and beautiful truth: "From the moment a woman learns she's expecting, she starts to nurture her baby-to-be," they observed. "But who's there to nurture the mother?"

The ingenious answer to that question is what led to the birth of Belly Bandit - a diverse collection of maternity and post-pregnancy essentials specifically created to make women look and feel their absolute best, with designs that help to speed recovery, to aid in healing, and to provide much-needed support for overstressed muscles and joints.

Today, Belly Bandit's lineup has grown to include "AnytimeWear," from layering must-haves to capri leggings, tank tops and more. "We're always thinking 'new product' " says Jodi - which begs the obvious question: What's next? "A cute little top for new moms that says 'Don't you dare ask if I'm pregnant', jokes Kari. "That means you, Dwayne." adds Lori.

Belly Bandit® is the top post-pregnancy shape wear collection
recommended by physicians, nurses, hospitals, doulas, fitness experts and of course, new moms.
