I got the cheeky undies to wear postpartum and they fit great! I had a C-Section and didn't want to wear anything low cut. I wore these and a robe ALL THE TIME!
I ordered these specifically for postpartum use and had a lot of questions on the support/compression. I’m wearing these 6 days after birth and they’re great - supportive on my recovering belly without being uncomfortable. The cheeky fit is substantial enough for a pad and ice pack but cute enough to wear later on too.
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
These literally helped me feel “put back together” postpartum
I have not yet had the chance to wear the bloomers as I ordered a size small, but was sent a size XS. Retuned them and waiting for a refund.
Pre pregnancy 145 lbs, 5’9”, dress size 4 sometimes 6. got a size small, they are a bit tight around my legs, and tend to roll down on my pregnant belly. Maybe I will like them more for postpartum. I wish I had gotten the same color as my pro bump so I could wear them together and have them match. I really love the pro bump and these seem just ok, but I might like them better for recovery
For reference, I am 5'1, 185lbs, 29 weeks. I followed the sizing guide and got 2 large bloomers but they are so big that they are constantly falling down my belly and there is an odd bunch of extra fabric on each side of my butt. It's my own fault for not going with my gut and returning both pairs, and I took the sticker off of one pair thinking that I can use them closer to delivery. I am returning the other large pair for a medium and hoping those are a better fit for now and after baby.
Besides the sizing issue, I like how these are really high wasted and thicker material. Hopefully the medium size gives me the "hug" feeling everyone is talking about.
I used to ask my husband to hug me from behind and support my pregnant belly in doing so and it was always the best relief for the few seconds he’d do it but now these bloomers feel like that all day and it’s the best!!
These are the second pair of bloomers I purchased from Bao Bei because they are WONDERFUL! I’m currently 5 weeks postpartum after a repeat c-section delivery, and I wish I had these after my first c-section delivery. It’s the perfect amount of compression to make everything feel supported in my belly and pelvic floor, and it didn’t irritate my incision at all. I actually bought two pairs so I can commit one to wear as swimsuit bottoms - I love how they smooth out my fresh postpartum belly!
Absolutely pure magic but I definitely recommend going down a size so that there are actually supportive I also have a long torso so unfortunately they hit right below my belly button
Maternity & Postpartum Bloomers - Scallop Edge Black
As soon as I put these on, I knew they were exactly what I needed. They are amazing. I am 16 weeks pregnant with twins and feel like they will provide the much needed support that I need now and throughout my pregnancy. Thank you for making these!
The absolute most comfortable maternity item I own. They make me feel supported and get me through the long days.
I have the bralettes in a few colors and this black is the best! Love how you can't see anything through it and it can be paired with any shirt. I highly recommend getting this black bralette and one color!
If you’re looking for a comfortable nursing bra that doesn’t dig in or leave marks, look no further. Unfortunately did not find these bras until post partum but wish I could have worn during pregnancy!
They offer enough support while giving you the almost not wearing a bra feeling.
I've always worn bralettes and this is by far the prettiest and most comfy I've ever owned. It's somehow both incredibly stretchy and supportive enough, has a perfect lenght and pretty back. I really don't understand how it can be so comfortable! I'm also nursing and this is PERFECT, just pull it down and your boob is free. I love that it has no nursing clips to deal with and that it has a normal shape compared to most nursing bras, so it fits under everything and doesn't look like a nursing bra. Since I received it I've been wearing it 24/7. I wish it came in more neutral colors so I could wear it all the time, under everything, forever!
At first I was skeptical about this bralette since I had just gotten a soft, sleeper nursing bra from Kindred Bravely. When I initially put it on I didn't think it would be as comfortable, but man oh man I love it! It is so easy to both pump and nurse and actually gives me some support (smaller chested over here). After my first full day wearing it, I immediately ordered another in shell. They go perfectly with the postpartum crop pants - I can literally pull the bralette right over the top lining of the pants and then throw on a long cardigan for a perfectly acceptable outfit to wear in public. Super happy I took the chance on these!
I had originally ordered two other colors very early on in the first trimester of my second (current) pregnancy and I quickly decided that I should order more colors because I loved the stretchiness and support that I felt from them. I now have four colors and I still. want. more!!
I am 37 weeks pregnant. I have not tried the cold packs yet because I have not given birth yet, but about a week before I ordered these bloomers I started to experience extreme pelvic girdle pain. I ordered the bloomers and I immediately started wearing them when they came in the mail. From the second I put them on, the pain started to improve. I believe the bloomers help control about 80% of the pain because it adds so much support to my hip and pelvis area. I went one day over the last week without wearing the bloomers and my pelvic pain was back to where it was last week. So, from now on I will definitely be wearing these bloomers every day until I give birth and afterword until I’m healed. Thank you BaoBei!
Worth every penny. I had a planned c-section because baby was breech, and have found this set to be one of the most useful things I stocked up on beforehand. The bloomers are super comfortable and felt like an appropriate next step after the mesh underwear from the hospital. I'm also really glad that I got the ice pack; not only do I ice my incision area, but I have also stuck the ice pack on my lower back to help with pain there. The bloomers fit just right so that the ice pack will stay put if I slide it under them. Highly recommend this product no matter what kind of birth you're having.
Honestly so happy that I found Baobei. This kit was amazing as a FTM who had no idea what to expect post delivery. Not only do their products ROCK, their instagram account is full of amazing educational information. I had no idea how much I'd love or need these cold packs. So much less bulky than the huge disposal packs you can get. And the bloomers were amazing support as well. Good thing I have several and could rotate through them to wear 24/7. Cannot recommend enough.
This was my first Bao Bai purchase and I loved them so much I had to come back for more. I also bought the Black and Blush and they are worth every penny. I do agree with some reviewers that the panty line can be moved forward or they can make it longer. Aside of that, I’m super glad I started wearing these during my first trimester. Don’t think about it. Buy then while they last!
...as a new mom I was too busy to exchange it haha!! This is a cute and functional nursing bralette for daytime that I could see myself using far past the breastfeeding stage. If not for the color change up I’d say 3.5-4 stars. xx
I love this bra as it is so comfy during pregnancy! My frame is small and my breast filled up with milk, so I got the XS/SM and it fits perfect!
