The Best Underwear for Every Stage of Pregnancy
During the beginning of your pregnancy, you have probably been able to continue wearing your regular, everyday underwear. Thongs and bikini cuts haven't posed a challenge to you yet, but there's a good possibility they will. But even if they don't, there are several compelling reasons to invest in maternity underwear or something comparable.
The Advantages of Maternity Underwear Specifically
Throughout your pregnancy, your body is changing to accommodate that amazing little human growing inside you. Unfortunately, for most women, it's not just their bellies that get bigger. This is where maternity underwear comes in.
Maternity underwear is specially designed to fit your bottom and your growing baby bump. Comfortable, breathable underwear that stays in place better than your everyday panties is a must during pregnancy.
Some come with a lighter colored lining, which makes it easier to spot any possible discharge, including signs of the mucus plug and bloody show, nature's warning that you will be meeting your baby soon.
But what if my everyday panties still fit me? That's great! But eventually, as your baby bump gets bigger, they may end up getting stretched out. If you are worried about this happening, invest in some cute and comfy maternity panties that will be able to accommodate your gloriously changing body.
The Advantages of Buying Something Comparable
On the flip side, just because they are maternity underwear, that doesn't mean that they are your option for the best underwear during pregnancy. The good news is that now companies are designing comfortable underwear for every facet of your life.
Let's face it. Maternity underwear is just one more thing you have to buy during your pregnancy. But now, some companies are coming out with underwear that can be worn before, during, and after your pregnancy. This is wonderful news for people who don't want to spend extra money on more maternity stuff that will only be used for a few short months.
The No Brainer from Uwila Warrior is the perfect example. With no tags and no-frills, this higher waisted underwear is not only reliable, but it will become your favorite pair of panties during and after your pregnancy.
The No Brainer is comfortably stretchy, offering full coverage without the tacky panty lines. In fact, with thermowelded side seams, these panties don't have any stitched seams. And best of all, they are pretty and feminine.
Postpartum: You Had the Baby, Now What?
Ok, so you've had your precious bundle of joy, and your life has wonderfully been turned upside down. Your body has gone through some changes as well. After giving birth, your delicate areas can be sore and a little tender. Some women may have swelling, bleeding, or even stitches that they are recovering from. Moving around can be difficult and uncomfortable. Because of this, you need excellent postpartum underwear.
Most everyday underwear has not been designed with your postpartum body in mind. They are not meant to gently support your delicate areas after delivering. The perfect postpartum underwear needs to:
- be soft, stretchy, breathable, and comfortable
- be able to keep your postpartum pads in place and prevent leaks
- adjust to your changing body and not dig, or cut into your skin
- have an elastic band that does not sit near your incision area, if you had a c-section.
If you have invested in the high-waisted underwear (No Brainer) from Uwila Warrior, you can still wear those comfortably. However, you may be yearning for something a little more feminine and, well, little.
If that's the case, the Soft Silk from Uwila Warrior is perfect for the postpartum part of your pregnancy journey. Just like the name suggests, this soft, 100 percent silk panty is luxuriously feminine and a treat to wear.
Designed to stay in place, dry quickly, and keep you cool, the Soft Silk panties can comfortably handle any situation you put it through. With 100 percent natural fibers, silk is one of the healthiest choices for underwear that you can make. Beautiful lacey scalloped trim and a soft sheen make this panty the perfect choice for feminine wear.
The tagless Soft Silk panties have side seams that help them fit your new curvier body better under your clothes. According to the Uwila Warrior website, "Soft Silks panties are the ultimate wedgie slayer." Seriously. You can’t go wrong with that!
