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!
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.
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!
