The Best Maternity and Postpartum Underwear

When embarking on the journey of pregnancy and motherhood, it’s essential to prioritize comfort and support, especially when it comes to your undergarments. As your small lacey numbers slowly make their way to the back of your underwear drawer and the bigger, fuller coverage pants take the front seat, it’s time to embrace the change and meet your new go-to. In this blog, we’ll delve into the world of maternity and postpartum underwear, exploring the best options to keep you feeling comfortable, confident, and supported throughout every stage of your pregnancy and beyond.

Key features to look for

Comfortable Fabrics

Soft, breathable fabrics like TENCEL™ Modal x Micro make for an ideal choice for maternity and postpartum underwear. Materials like this offer gentle support and minimize irritation on sensitive skin, giving you one less thing to worry about!

Supportive Design

Gone are the days of the G-String. Support is where it’s at. Always look for maternity underwear with extra stretch, wide waistbands, and full coverage to comfortably accommodate your growing belly without constricting.

The Style

There is no need to sacrifice on the style of your underwear whilst journeying through pregnancy and motherhood. It doesn’t have to be all beige, Bridget Jones-esque numbers! Opt for fun colors and prints to uplift you in the morning.

The High Rise

High-waisted briefs provide excellent coverage and support for your growing belly. Made from cloud-soft natural fibers that hug your stomach, the additional fabric provides additional comfort and support. A great option to wear with high-waisted trousers and jeans, providing a soft barrier between your skin and harsher materials.

The Original Brief

If you prefer lower-rise underwear, the Original Brief offers a comfortable fit that sits below the belly. This is a great option if you tend to overheat, providing less coverage than the High Rise and one less layer of fabric over your tummy. Cut at the waistline, this provides full coverage at the back, sitting neatly below your bump at the front.

The Hipster

The Hipster provides full coverage and is a great option for preventing chafing and discomfort due to their longer leg design. Sitting just below the bump, this shape is perfect for offering full support, keeping you cool and comfortable no matter the stage of your journey.

Underwear for C-sections

Choosing the right underwear after a C-section is crucial for comfort, support, and optimal healing. Your post-birth body can take a bit of adjusting to so it’s important to treat yourself with kindness and care during this time. We recommend the High Rise Brief as the ultimate choice for C-section underwear due to the extra coverage it offers around the tummy. Who doesn’t want fabric as soft as clouds caressing their stomachs?
