Anyone have any advice? It was bad enough before I got pregnant again, but now everything just slides down off my belly and hits my incision scar. It's driving me crazy. I tried going up a size, but they're too loose everywhere else.

A few places make those super-low-rise undies, and I heard from a few girlfriends with c/s scars that they're great. I'd try them on and see if they work out any better!<br><br>
I don't have a c/s scar, but I just can't stand underwear to begin with, so I'm always commando, ESPECIALLY when pregnant... something about them just "rubs me the wrong way"

I have the same problem. I wear giant old granny sized underwear! They go up right over my belly button. I have a few in bigger sizes that I use when they start to get too tight around the middle. I just put up with the baggy butt! Would you believe how difficult it is to buy old granny sized maternity underwear? They're all bikini style, which is no use at all for me. Maybe no underwear at all would be more use? I have not reached that stage yet.

Same here. I stopped wearing underwear out of frustration.

I wear a low rise style (both Hanes and Fruit of the Loom have a decent one for my shape) that hits below the c/s scar. Though my scar isn't sensitive right now...my real problem was right after my c/s when I discovered that all my wonderful comfy "worn them for months" pregnancy undies were riding RIGHT on the incision! Ouch! I lived in those hospital mesh panties for as long as I could (I got an extra box full from the hospital) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I can't stand having anything pulled up over my belly right now, so the super low rise were my best option. Funny how the giant bellied pregnant mama is reaping the benefits of the fashion trends of the newly teens!

I have these great undies by lunapads that are super low-rise. They have a built-in panty-liner which is perfect for pg discharge or incontinence.<br><br><a href="http://www.lunapads.com/product.aspx?ProductID=48&deptid=29&PriceCat=2&Lang=EN-US" target="_blank">http://www.lunapads.com/product.aspx...t=2&Lang=EN-US</a>
