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!!
