with my first pregnancy i admit i thought maternity panties were silly -- when my bootie got bigger i just got a couple packs of temporary hanes her way in a larger size and kept it moving. this time i was in the maternity store and felt like splurging/exploring and got a couple packs, and oh my goodness it made a HUGE difference!! just having more gentle elastic at the waistband (one style dips down extra low in front, another actually folds down like yoga pants) made a huge difference in my comfort under my clothes (when the slightest bit of pressure on my belly made me a little nauseous)<br><br>
just thought i should share, b/c when i put them on i heard the angels sing, and felt like i'd discovered the best kept secret of maternity wear. LOL!

I loved maternity undies with my last pregnancy, too :giggle:

I've never had any maternity undies with my pgs but you may have just sold me on trying some. I swear my undies have been getting so uncomfy lately.

Goodness! Maternity panties were such a lifesaver for me with my last pregnancy. I had unds that actually fit and I didn't have to keep reminding myself how much bigger my rear end was getting by attempting to squeeze into my pre preggo panties. I'm buying at least a dozen pair this go around!

Ah. The big booty. Sigh.<br>
I was working at an outdoor adventure/outfitting place during my last pregnancy, and we used to get these insane staff deals on Icebreaker stuff. If you don't know Icebreaker, well, you should! <a href="http://www.icebreaker.com/site/index.html" target="_blank">http://www.icebreaker.com/site/index.html</a><br>
Anyway, their regular bikini cut/low rise undies are actually maternity panties in disguise. I swear. I wound up with five pairs, and happily do laundry frequently enough to keep them in circulation. It really does make a difference to have underwear that fit!<br>
I'm curious to try some "real" maternity undies now though. Does the pair that folds down like yoga pants not feel bulky?

Uh, I've been wearing maternity underwear since my second pregnancy <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> It is super low cut and very soft and stretchy, I decided to make it an all the time thing.

Gap, Old Navy and Motherhood maternity all sell maternity underwear. I'm not sure about in the stores for Gap and Old Navy, as I tend to shop on their websites more than in store.

I've bought maternity underwear in Old Navy, but last time I went there they didn't have much in the way of maternity so you might have to get it on-line.

I bought some today! I love how they feel on my belly, but they are huge on my behind. I'm guessin' it will get bigger though, and I will be glad. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I LOVE my motherhood maternity underwear. I am 2 months PP and still wearing them, and have no desire to ever stop.<br><br>
I may very well go buy more the next time I need underwear. Nobody has to know. If anybody other than my husband is looking at my underwear that closely they are probably robbing my house or they're paramedics who should be paying more attention to me and less to my underwear.

I bought some too, after all these rave reviews, and I feel the same. I bought the hipster style, which is what I normally wear anyway. The belly is fabulous...the butt is ENORMOUS. And I am not, like, a small-butted girl or anything.<br><br>
They are comfy, but I think I might need a little more butt support or something. They are just hanging off. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

LOL - yeah my motherhood maternity panties fit more like tap pants or something at first. (and i am far from a small-butted girl as well as having been growing in that department since just about the moment i got my BFP, lol!) but after the first wash & dry they fit much more snugly in the rear and i am super glad i didn't purchase more in a size smaller before discovering this.<br><br>
edited to add: i mentioned my new discovery to my mom and she was horrified that she had let slip this all important teaching about motherhood and pregnancy. she reacted as though i'd gone through my first pregnancy barefoot in the desert! lol.

Oh, that's a relief. I tried them on before washing, so maybe after going through the laundry the fit will be more reasonable!
