I am currently pregnant with baby #2, and I'm having a difficult time with finding comfortable underwear, specifically the bottoms. I like the maternity tops, but don't like the bottoms because all of them seem to still have a thin waist band that puts unconfortable pressure somewhere along my belly. What did you do when you were pregnant? Do you think it would be okay to buy mens bottoms with their thicker waist bands? It just seems like they would be more comfortable.

Just to be clear, I am really only looking for some practical advice from some LDS women who've been there, I don't want this to turn into any indepth discussion of garments on a public forum. Thank-you!

i am not LDS, but i have a dear friend who is. she use to buy men's sport underwear. they have a thick band and fell in a better place for her.

Your life doesnât change by the man whos elected. If your loved by someone you can't be rejected... decide what to be and go be it! If your a caged bird brake in and demand that somebody free it.

I haven't been around this forum forever~ there are a bunch of natural moms over on www.thecrunchymormonforum.com, if you want to come find us there.

As far as bottoms, I'm 28 weeks now, and wear the waistband under my belly. I've loved maternity bottoms in other pregnancies, but can't stand them now. There's a gap sometimes between the top and the bottom, but I'm not buying maternity tops at this point.
