I debated these for so long and am really glad I finally invested in myself and purchased them. I am 30 weeks pregnant and started to feel myself holding my body in weird positions when I wasn't wearing my maternity pants that had belly support. Being able to throw these on has felt so good! And I know they will feel especially supportive when I am postpartum. The scalloped edge makes them feel more special/sexy.
I am 5'7", 147lbs at 30 weeks, and a size Small feels right.
Great feel, very supportive. After a long day, sometimes they slip down a bit.
I started getting pain from diastasis in my upper abdomen around 26w, and my maternity belt made it worse by pushing everything up. I got these bloomers and they have been a godsend. It knits everything in, making me so much more comfortable on my long days at work. Love these!
I had my second C-section a week ago and i've been living in these! Just wish i would have ordered more. They are worth every penny. They dont bother my skin or leave marks like some of my other undies do and they give the gentle support i need while i recover.
I have diastasis recti, and at 37 weeks my baby was hanging really far forward and turning endless somersaults because he/she had too much room! These really help to tuck my belly in, support it from below, and help my baby stay head down and tucked more towards the pelvic inlet to be able to drop and engage. I pair wearing these with the Bao Bei pro bump band, and they are SO much more comfortable than any velcro belly bands. Wearing them means I can sit comfortably again without my belly hanging so far forward. I can't wait to wear them post partum for their belly tucking and smoothing look. Also, no more underwear lines digging into my love handles--it's like a little shape-wear for under dresses. :-)
Sizing wise, I was 108 lbs (5' 5") at the beginning of pregnancy. The XS would have fit great earlier in pregnancy, but at 9 months pregnant and 147 lbs, they still fit my bum but do not fit over my gigantic baby bump. I also purchased the S and that fits well.
