My undies are starting to hurt bad and so I need to go bigger. Well I looked at the maternity ones at Wal-mart and they are just strechy material and only had one size, they were like nylons and I wanted to get cotton to avoid yeast infections. So I looked at the plus size and they didn't have strech bands on the larger sizes so they would strech around my tummy. I want something that don't make me feel like I am being squeezed to death around my tummy. What did you twin mommys use? I didn't want to buy a ton of undies just to find something I liked, So I thought I would ask you gals.<br>
Thanks,<br>

I used the Old Navy low-rise maternity undies and they were pretty comfy. I believe they are all cotton. Just throw away your pride and make sure you get a big enough size. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I got the cotton bikinis from motherhood maternity because my regular bikinis (even a size up) will no longer fit comfortably around my ever-spreading hips and will neither cover my butt cleavage nor come to the top of my pubes.<br><br>
And even today, I noticed that the new undies are starting to get a tiny bit snug when I pull them on. Once they're on, though, they're perfectly comfortable.

I got Just My Size undies from Wal-Mart, three sizes too big. I hated having anything below my belly since it rubbed my old c-section scar which is so irritating. So yeah, they were saggy in the butt but it worked <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I got the bikini undies from Hanes one size up from what I normally wore. But then again, I only gained 40 lbs despite a 5000 calorie a day diet<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

I got the Hanes her way, the biggest size, and still had to wear them under the belly the last few weeks/months!!

I'm only about 18 weeks but my underwear was starting to kill me at the thighs and around the stomach. Last night, I put on a pair of DH's Hanes boxer briefs and they are wonderful! No pinching around the thighs since they are longer and the thicker elastic waistband around my stomach doesn't dig in at all but still feels snug.<br><br>
BTW - I'm 5'4" and wear a size small in regular panties and DH is 6'2" and these are size 32-36/M I believe. They're a bit loose around the legs right now but I'm going to buy more in this size since I'll only get bigger. Plus, DH can have them all once I'm not pregnant anymore!

After a certain point I could not do under the belly. The Bravado maternity ones were pretty good and cottony too. I also got some big ole granny panties in sizes I cannot mention. Ugly but they got the job done.

I too loved the Hanes bikini cut several sizes up from pre-prego. They are all cotton and cheep, plus they didn't give "wedgies", if you know what I mean <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> . I couldn't stand anything rubbing or binding on my belly so I was into everything fitting below the belly.

cotton Hanes bikinis, so they would go under my belly. In a couple sizes bigger than usual <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Another vote for cotton Hanes bikini sized one or two sizes up from pre preg size. I got mine at Target. Very comfy, good coverage in back, though mine do tend to ride slightly below the hairline in the front, which they don't when I'm not preggo. The Hanes bikini ones with the wide elastic waist band like boy undies will drive you batty though cuz the elastic is too wide and doesn't stretch enough. Many of my pre preg ones are like that and I hate them right now. Just get the all-cotton string bikinis, that's my vote.

I vote for 100% cotton maternity thongs from Motherhood.<br><br>
I know, I know. . . there's probably a bunch of you thinking "Pregnant. . . THONGS!!?" and I would have said the same thing at one time. Don't knock it 'till you've tried it - very comfortable.<br><br>
I really like that they are cut low in the front, so sit under the belly without rolling - which a lot of other stuff does and the roll of fabric underneath the belly was downright PAINFUL in my experience.

I used the under belly ones from Japanese Weekend, which sound like they might be similar to the Old Navy ones. I couldn't stand anything stretched over my preggie belly!
