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
I was skeptical about these at first. Were they really going to be worth the price (I mean 30 for underwear, really?). But I got the two pack anyway. So glad I did! I had a planned c-section. When I was in the hospital I wore the mesh undies they give you, but by the time I got home, I was out. I put on some undies I didn't care about because I didn't want to ruin an expensive pair with my continued bleeding. Those undies were so uncomfortable and almost painful on my incision. Adore Your Core cheekies to the rescue! I put them on, and literally signed outloud in relief. The fabric is so soft, the "support" was up above my incision so it wasn't putting any pressure on it and held my destroyed tummy in just the right amount. The high waisted style is flattering and hides some of those stretch marks, especially if you have your shirt up to nurse. Make sure to buy two, so you have one to wear while the other is in the wash. Totally worth the money!
