I was looking for something to "smooth out" my tummy without being restrictive, like Spanxs, and I love these! I bought two when they were on sale, and went back for two more. They are really comfortable and exactly what I was looking for! I'm currently pregnant, but will definitely be wearing these again postpartum. It's so nice to finally have something I know is comfortable for after giving birth - I really hated that awkward granny panty phase where nothing looked good or fit! I have the M/L and am usually about a size 12.
I bought these for after my birth when they were having a sale. I would say they are only OK.
PROS: Comfy, soft, high waisted. Perfect for post C-section.
CONS: I was expecting more compression, there is none. I was also expecting more of a cheeky style, these are more like regular underwear. I have some other high waist undies that are very comparable and were much less expensive. Not worth the $$$ in my opinion.
I’m 29 weeks pregnant and these are super comfy! They have just the right amount of compression and are very flattering but beware like most of the bloomers they still give ya panty lines! My only complaint again is like with the other bloomers the little cotton area that your crotch is supposed to be on is very small and placed far back in the undies so it’s more on your bum than your front if ya know what I mean
I was skeptical about these at first. Were they really going to be worth the price (I mean 30 for underwear, really?). But I got the two pack anyway. So glad I did! I had a planned c-section. When I was in the hospital I wore the mesh undies they give you, but by the time I got home, I was out. I put on some undies I didn't care about because I didn't want to ruin an expensive pair with my continued bleeding. Those undies were so uncomfortable and almost painful on my incision. Adore Your Core cheekies to the rescue! I put them on, and literally signed outloud in relief. The fabric is so soft, the "support" was up above my incision so it wasn't putting any pressure on it and held my destroyed tummy in just the right amount. The high waisted style is flattering and hides some of those stretch marks, especially if you have your shirt up to nurse. Make sure to buy two, so you have one to wear while the other is in the wash. Totally worth the money!
While hunting for "cute" high-waisted maternity panties, I came across these bloomers. First of all, they are nice and supportive, especially if you have SPD (pelvic separation)! My OB was impressed with them. I love that I can wear them alone or layered over my regular underwear to get several days of wear out of them. On days when my pain is pretty high, I'm also layering them with the ProBump for extra support. They are especially great to wear for support under dresses because they're underwear! I've got a blush and a black pair, so I can wear them with anything. I'll definitely bring my black pair to the hospital to wear over my mesh undies. I wish I had five more!!
I purchased both the straight edge and scallop edge ones and I prefer the straight edge ones. The sizing was correct according to the size chart, the issue I had was with the scallop ones rolling down constantly (up until recently at 3 weeks postpartum). I tried to wear these during third trimester as many had raved about but these rolled down and continued to do so even in the first 1-2 weeks PP. The straight edge ones did not. They are very comfy and I do recommend them for after a c section. I purchased a medium, at 5’6 and currently 170 (usually 145 pre pregnancy/postpartum). If you are torn at which to buy, I’d purchase the regular cut to avoid any rolling down of the matierial.
These provide great gentle support during pregnancy. They stay up and are snug but not too tight. I am generally a small, and the small fit. Panty lines not too bad. I am still wearing postpartum, as they work with compression girdles. They are, however, loose now and do not provide compression on their own.
These are a MUST have item!! The are soft, and gives your pregnant belly the support that is needed! They do not ride up and I cannot wait to have these in my hospital bag for afterwards! Ordering more now!!
I 100% regret not ordering before 34 weeks pregnant!! And I think I need two more pairs!!
These are all they’re hyped up to be - I bought a scalloped and a straight version to see if one was better than the other after reading a couple reviews they may droop a bit- nope, they’re both perfect. Will buy more!
I am so happy I purchased these, and have recently come back for a second pair in black. I initially was shopping for these to help with exercise ~5 months, and they did help support my belly and allowed me to continue jogging occasionally. After hitting 6 mo, my belly starting feeling heavy and stretched and I wear these just around the house several times per week. It is such a relief, especially on the underbelly! The top band doesn't cut into my tummy and the compression/stretch is just right, with some stretch to keep growing. For reference, I am 5'4", 115lbs pre-pregnancy and now 130-135lbs at 6 months and I purchased the XS. Also just love the sweet but rich coco color!! These are practical but also feminine and pretty. Looking forward to wearing postpartum also.
I really love these so much. This is my 3rd baby and I’m only 24 weeks but I’ve had lower back pain and SPD. I’m doing pelvic floor PT and walking 3 miles per day, these bloomers are helping me stay active, relieve my pelvic pressure, and have also noticeably eased my back and pelvic pain. I’m caring for my 4 and 2 yo kids now so I’m very grateful to be able to keep active but feel supported by this product. Looking forward to wearing through pregnancy and postpartum.
I love these bloomers! I have had pretty terrible pelvic pain and pressure with my 3rd pregnancy and once I put these bloomers on it’s instant relief and I can survive the day working as a nurse or chasing my two toddlers. I bought two pair and am very grateful to have them! The money is so worth it for the comfort! I am 33 weeks pregnant, weigh 140, and I bought a size small. They fit perfect!
I’m excited to try the bralettes and postpartum support leggings once baby arrives.
I got these in a size XL they fit very comfortable days after birth and I love how high waisted they are compared to other underwear I’ve tried in the past. For the price I think it is worth it because they seem like they will last me for a long time and the quality is nice! Got the latte Bralette to pair with, but of corse I will be mix matching the other colors!
Where have these nursing bras been all my life (or at least for my last 3 babies) Super comfortable, love all the colors and the simple detail on the back. It’s great not having super bulky straps that dig into your shoulders and you can easily pull it down or lift it up to nurse!
I’ve bought and tried over 10 different kinds of nursing bras. I was having such a hard time finding the perfect amount of support with out getting big hard knots everywhere! Finally after a lactation consult told me my “sleep pull down” bra was actually the cause of my breast issues (plus dense breast tissue, apparently it runs in the fam), I finally found a winner with these bralettes! I have three and I wish I’d found them with my first baby! I’m about four months post baby #2 and these have been a lifesaver.
For reference: I’m 5’1, pre baby 118 lbs, currently 129 lbs. I’m probably a C cup normally, full C while nursing. But I prefer the medium/large bralettes. I’m honestly between sizes... but I prefer the band size on the mediums/large since I hate bra bands being too tight! I wear these everyday, I just pop in some nursing pads to add a thin amount of padding so i don’t get any nipple poking out action.
I'm in my first pregnancy and have bought and returned SO many different maternity bras- none of them fitting or being comfortable. A friend recommended Bao Bei and I am so thankful!! This bra fits great, is comfy, and will fit as I go through my pregnancy and hopefully after! I wear it as an everyday bra or it's also great to work out in.
I’ve owned so many bralettes and this is by far the most comfortable and soft one that I’ve ever owned. The color is beautiful and it provides the perfect amount of support. I adore this bralette!
Not only is this latte color gorgeous, I am so happy with how the bralette both offers support for lower impact exercise and then flexes with the daily life of motherhood. The fabric is soft and yet sturdy. I'm super picky about bras, but plan on ordering this one in many colors for pregnancy and postpartum + mom life ;)
Adore Maternity & Nursing Bralette - Earth
Very comfy and absolutely love the color.
This is actually the first bralette I have ever owned and so happy I purchased it. It is so comfy!! I bought it during my pregnancy and can’t wait to use it postpartum too!! and I can’t wait to get more in different colours 😍
