<p>I had my MW appointment yesterday so I made sure to wear my best pair of undies. My underwear is in sorry shape but I thought my "nice" underwear was up to snuff. She pointed out the irritation on my bump from the elastic and recommended going for something with a cotton waistband. How embarrassing to have your MW comment on the sad condition of your underpants! So I went out today and got these <a href="http://www.motherhood.com/Product.asp?Product_Id=90783940135&MasterCategory_Id=MC14" target="_blank">fold over panties</a> from Motherhood. I just got one package to see how I like them. I think I am in love! Best underwear I have ever worn. I can't even tell I am wearing panties. And if I end up with another c/s, there is no elastic band to irritate the incision.</p>

<p>That's really funny. I swear by motherhood thongs, myself, but I love their underwear. I think I kept wearing mine for like a year PP last time! <img alt="" src="http://files.mothering.com/bouncy.gif" title=""></p>

<p>i had JUST gotten out of mine for seriously...3-4 weeks when I got preg again...LOL. But from wearing them throughout the pregnancy, then like 9 months PP, i had worn them out. I still have them all, but did splurge on a new pkg with birthday money from my mom. ahhh...new undies <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com//images/smilies/smile.gif"></p>

<p>Thanks for the suggestion! I just noticed the other day that one pair of my underwear was getting snug on the rear. Do these fit pretty true to size? I'm usually a large (12-14) in most things. Should I get a M or L? The one review on the website said the XL were huge on a mama who usually wore an XL so that makes me wonder.</p>

<p>I have a package of the boy short style underwear and they run a size larger than marked. They are also very stretchy. HTH!</p>

<p>Bravado works great too...the one's I have are pushing 61/2 years old....guess i do need to buy some new ones. I've been looking and havent found any that look comfy. Next time i'm in motherhood i will pick these up. </p>
<p>Speaking of motherhood....last time I was in the store...they asked for my address and i declined....she looked at me like I was crazy...she said " DOnt you want $400 of free stuff?" Uhhhh No I dont....we breastfeed, cloth diaper and homebirth......I dont need samples of anything....she says "well you could donate it all to someone else"...uhhhhh no...because I wouldnt want to encourage formula feeding. She was shell shocked.....that I didnt want anything free. </p>

<p>Glad I am not the only one who has the maternity underwear love. I did not have them with DS and never really even considered buying any. This time we are in a better position financially so I can indulge in things like this and I love it! Also, I figured out why you would want to buy a tshirt from them. They are cut so much longer! I bought two long sleeve shirts and I am so pleased with how long they are. I am discovering the joys of nice maternity clothes for the first time! <img alt="" src="http://files.mothering.com/broc1.gif" title=""></p>

<p>On sizing, with the panties, if you have a big, round, out there booty then you will be ok with buying your reg size. If not, go one size down. I have a big padonkadonk and so the fold over undies are great, I have them up in the back and folded down in the front and I have full booty cleavage coverage. FTR I am a size 12-14 everywhere but my butt. I bought the L panties and I can see that if I had a smaller bum then I would probably be OK with a M.<br>

<p>LOL! I did give her my information because I am looking forward to donating all those formula and diaper samples to our local food bank. For better or worse, a lot of these low-income working moms ff at least part time and I know formula and diapers are a huge need that our food bank has a hard time meeting.<br>

<br><br><p>Hmm, I will have to check those out. The price is very appealing. Do they have elastic around the band though? That was the big thing that was bothering my belly and I imagine low rise panties would be riding on my scar.</p>

<p>I don't know how low your scar is, but these are super low.  Like so low they don't lose their shape. I wore mine as part of the regular rotation long after DS2 was born!</p>

<p>My scar is right above my pelvic bone. I've looked at the site and it looks like the elastic would still be a problem. I am very fair and my skin seems to be extra sensitive right now. Too bad since they are having a deal, buy two 3-packs and get them for $8 each. Not a bad deal for someone who was interested. I like the look of their long sleeve henleys too.</p>

<p>I posted in another thread about a 30% off coupon for gap/old navy.  you can search gap give and get and find it or I think if you want to pm me your email I can send you an invite for it. When I posted a link it didn't work.   You get 30% off gap, old navy, banana republic (online or instore) and 5% is donated to a non profit (they have a few to choose from, i think, unless someone invites you then you have to do what they pick) Only good til Sunday 11/14.  I love the old navy tshirts and will be stocking up this weekend.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>FWIW- I am a12 non pregnant. bigger on the bottom but tend to gain pretty quickly when pregnant (esp in the butt).  I am a solid large in all the motherhood stuff. I got the hipster undies and large fits fine. room to grow but not too big now. </p>

<p>I loved Old Navy's low rise undies during my first pregnancy. Then I got some Bravado undies this time around and I have been converted. They are SO comfy. I need to get some more of them!</p>
