There is nothing more relieving and joyous than giving birth. However, the first few months after giving birth can be a swirl of emotions. You may experience mood swings, and you may feel like you need a little extra help to deal with everything.
Not to mention, you may find yourself needing a new pair of underwear. Meet postpartum underwear. It’s specially designed for new mothers who need a little more protection and comfort in their lives.
A few reasons for getting postpartum underwear include:
It’s easy on the stitching. Some pairs of underwear can irritate your delicate stitching, which can annoy or possibly hurt you.
They feel comfortable and give you the freedom to move around.
They are breathable, which allows you to keep your vaginal area dryer. When you’re healing, this is important to prevent any infection.
These are just a few reasons why you need postpartum underwear. When searching for materials, you need to find the best materials. Mesh is breathable, but doesn’t last long. However, you don’t need postpartum underwear for too long, anyway. Microfiber is a better choice and is more absorbent. Not to mention, you may be considering different types of underwear. Some are disposable, while others are more compressed.
We say to try on a few pairs and see which one is the best for you. With that out of the way, let’s look at a few brands and see which one is the best.
Fruit Of The Loom
Their Beyond Soft Panties line is great for new mothers. It’s not expensive whatsoever, and it’s machine washable. When you’re a new mother, you need that convenience, which Fruit of the Loom delivers with in spades. It’s a brief style of underwear that goes high on your stomach, but its waistband is sadly a bit thin. They are good for both c-section and vagina births, and can help you in the couple of weeks after birth. Also, they come in six pairs, so that’s almost a pair for every day of the week.
Also, these panties are a bit big. Try them on first and see if they fit you.
Always Discreet, Incontinence Underwear
As the name implies, they are more discreet. You don’t need any pads, and they are quite comfortable for you to wear. These are disposable pairs of underwear that handles leaks, stains, and everything else that comes with the postpartum world. These are gentle on the stitches, and despite running a bit thin, they manage to hold a lot.
They are scented. Some will love the scent, while others may not like it, so keep that in mind. Also, because they are disposable, they are not the best pair if you’re an eco friendly mom. If you can get past those two cons, they are still a great pair of postpartum underwear.
The baby c-panty is for moms who have had a c-section. That scar needs some TLC after you’ve given birth, and this pair of panties delivers. It handles swelling and protects the scar from any further damage. They can keep the blood flowing. The pair of panties even has some gel to speed up the healing process.
We suppose the only downside of this pair of panties is the price tag. They are a bit expensive, but if you had a C-section, you may end up paying more if you don’t protect your scar. Buying the right pair of panties is a worthy investment that we highly recommend. We say to give this a try and see what you can do with it.
The Intimate Portal Maternity Under Bump Panties are a great pair of postpartum panties, and here is why.
The last pair of panties is for c-sections. This one is reserved for vaginal births and are good if you want low rise panties that are breathable and you can wash. They give you enough coverage to keep your pad in and allow you much more comfort than the other types of panties out there. Because of their little coverage, they are discreet enough so that no one knows that you are wearing them. The only problem is that these pairs are quite small, so they may not be able to fit all mothers. However, for the price, they are great and are colorful too.
Kindred Bravely High Waist
This is another breathable pair of postpartum panties that are good for both types of births. While they do run a little bit small, just like the last pair, they are so soft and comfortable. They work well with any type of stitches and they cover you quite well. Some women care about how their panties look, and they want a pair that not only is effective, but is cute too. These panties offer the best of both worlds and we recommend you try them.
As we mentioned before, having breathability is important. You want to make sure your body is nice and dry as you heal up and you deal with the aftermath of your birth. This pair of panties helps you out with that and then some.
Also, if you’re selecting sizes, you may want to go a size up more than you usually are. We can’t stress how small these are.
How Long Do You Wear These Panties For?
You should wear postpartum panties for the first few weeks after our birth. After that, you can go back to your regular panties. However, these panties are so comfy, you may find yourself wearing them for much longer.
That’s the beauty of motherhood. Some mothers find that comfortability is preferred over looking good. You can obviously do both, but you’re no longer dressing to impress for the most part. You are dressing however you feel like.
As for which pair is the best, it depends on what you’re looking for. Disposable panties are good for stains, while the other pairs are more permanent. We say try a few out and see what works best.DISCLAIMER (IMPORTANT): This information (including all text, images, audio, or other formats on FamilyHype.com) is not intended to be a substitute for informed professional advice, diagnosis, endorsement or treatment.
