I got this set before labor, mainly to chill in at the house with my new baby. I knew it would be comfy and easy to nurse in. However, I unexpectedly had a c section delivery and found that these panties were an absolute life saver. They are the best option for a buttery soft over the incision comfort. Even better than the mesh panties. They hold a big pad well for postpartum as well without it moving around. Whether you have a vaginal or c section birth story, you’ll want these. Also got the matching slippers on Amazon! Very cute.
