The History of Bengkung Belly Binding

Inspired by the Malaysian technique, Bengkung belly binding is the tight wrapping and knotting of fabric around the belly offering support after childbirth in order to essentially ‘bind together’ a woman’s hips, stomach, and torso.

Belly binding offers a variety of benefits such improving posture while supporting the abdomen and lower back, tightening ligaments, returning organs to previous positions, and of course supporting the body for a quicker return to your pre-pregnancy state. In some cases, the belly binding technique has also provided a sense of comfort that aids in managing postpartum depression.
