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.
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 am a CHEAP person. I don't buy things, especially expensive things, often. I normally just make do. These were probably the most expensive postpartum item I bought, but they were the best. Unfortunately I got them a few months after delivery, because COVID stopped production for a while. I reallllllllly wish I had them those first couple weeks. I contracted a light prolapse after birth, and I think if I had had these, there may have been a chance I wouldn't have prolapsed. However, that said, this really helped alleviate my prolapse. The support is as good as people say. It helped to mostly relieve that 'tampon feeling' from my prolapse while my body healed and while I did PT. They were great for my mental health for that reason, and they felt great to wear. The fabric is fantastically smooth. Although I have almost fully healed and my prolapse is asymptomatic now, I still wear them when I know I will be doing a high impact activity, and they make me feel safer because of the support. I ordered a small because that's what I was pre-pregnancy, and even though I got huge and gained 50 lbs while pregnant, these still fit me great early postpartum and have shrunk with me as I lost the baby weight. Definitely recommend. I only needed one pair. I wasn't as big a fan for the bralettes, but the bloomers were definitely worth it. They helped my body along in the healing process.
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 really supportive and comfortable - they stay up perfectly (so do the scallop- I ordered both). I'll be ordering more and can't wait until black scallop is back in stock!
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 bought a bunch of nursing bras in my third trimester and then lo and behold my boobs grew SO MUCH when my milk came in! This bra is the only one that fits and it’s SO COMFORTABLE! Huge fan!
The Comfy Cozie thing is great too. Great little kit!
This sweatshirt is SO soft and cozy. I love the thumbholes and it’s easy to breastfeed in.
I didn't know I needed this sweat shirt until I wore it for the first time. I typically wear non-postpartum sweatshirts, but when I breastfeed outside, I get really cold and my belly shows. Having this sweatshirt kept me warm and covered up when it was time to nurse. I was also able to wrap baby up in the sweatshirt to keep him warm and cozy too. I definitely recommend this sweatshirt if you are breastfeeding or pregnant!
I don’t even know where to start other then GET THIS!!!! I got one and then I had to get it in all colors and all sizes so some days I like it loose and big and others I like it more snug. I wear them everyday, they fit great over my bump and are going to be perfect for nursing! You can lounge in them but also dress them up with a fun necklace! They are long so you can wear them with leggings and they cover your behind!!
I have had the grey and blush for over two years now, since I got pregnant with my first baby and still wear them all the time! They are so comfortable, soft and cute and the thumb holes are a win! Newly pregnant again I can’t wait to get even more use out of them and maybe add the black to my collection!
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
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!
After falling in love with the bralettes and the bloomers, I knew I had to get my hands on these. Luckily they came back in stock 2 weeks before my delivery, and I am SO thankful! I did have a VBAC, but the amount of compression feels so good and allows me to feel "normal." I'm on the larger side, so I do get a little roll down in the back, but honestly it's not uncomfortable. I love that the bralette can be pulled over the top lining and I'm completely covered. I've just been throwing on a long cardigan and I'm good to go for the day! They are definitely pricey, which is why I only have one pair, but it's been so worth it! The material is so soft and buttery and not see through at all. By far the best of the best postpartum pants.
I love everything about these leggings, I have three pairs. So when my husband told me he could see what color underwear I was wearing. I was very upset, considering the price for these.
I was on the fence about buying these pants for a long time. After having a hard recovery from my 1st pregnancy, I knew I wanted to go into the recovery of my 2nd baby better prepared. After 1.5 weeks postpartum from a C section and following the advice of Expecting and Empowered Postpartum guide, I bought these pants. For the first time in both pregnancies, my belly supported! I wish I had bought the pregnancy band too during my pregnancies. Would definitely recommend these pants. Only thing that would make them better are pockets or else I would buy multiple of these. Advice: purchase these 1 week before or right after giving birth so you have a chance to figure out sizing. I originally bought a small and my 130lb 5’2” frame definitely did not fit a small so I returned and bought a medium.
Love these! I ended up having an unplanned C-section and these were (and still are) AMAZING! Love the high waist and all over compression. I definitely sized up compared to my other BaoBei products and am glad I did (wear a medium ProBump but ordered Large leggings). I am short (5'3") so these fit just above the ankle for me but I love that. Definitely worth it!
I was really on the fence about ordering these for myself because of the price, but I am SO glad I did. These are more comfortable than all my maternity leggings, regular leggings, ect. I have ONLY worn these post partum. I had polyhydroamnios and on babys birthday weighed 110 lbs over my normal weight. The amount of swelling and need for core support was unreal after my c section. The compression was exactly what I needed immediately and beyond post c section to help me heal. They are completely worth the investment.
