Wow, I wear these every day since the day after
my daughter was born via c-section. I felt that it supports my incision and abs just enough so that there isn’t much pain or pulling feeling when I lay a certain way in bed. These are perfect post birth support for me.
So I’m still pregnant, so I haven’t gotten to use the cold packs yet. But I LOVE the bloomers. They give me the right amount of support, and I’m excited that I can wear them postpartum as well. I bought a couple pair of bloomers, and I have one packed in my hospital bag to wear right after my c section.
Just received these so haven’t worn them for a full day yet, however when trying them on I found the leg holes to be quite tight around my thighs even though I ordered the correct size (any larger and they would be too lose around the midsection which defeats the purpose). I don’t have skinny thighs by any means but I did expect these to fit a little more forgivingly given that they’re made for some of the larger-sized days of our lives. I’m concerned that when I go to actually wear these they will be uncomfortable around my bikini area/thighs to want wear regularly. Time will tell!
I am 37 weeks pregnant. I have not tried the cold packs yet because I have not given birth yet, but about a week before I ordered these bloomers I started to experience extreme pelvic girdle pain. I ordered the bloomers and I immediately started wearing them when they came in the mail. From the second I put them on, the pain started to improve. I believe the bloomers help control about 80% of the pain because it adds so much support to my hip and pelvis area. I went one day over the last week without wearing the bloomers and my pelvic pain was back to where it was last week. So, from now on I will definitely be wearing these bloomers every day until I give birth and afterword until I’m healed. Thank you BaoBei!
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.
