Does anyone else feel like when they are pregnant their undies go tighter? Do other mums end up buying the next size up just for pregnancy?

  • No, but I found hipster undies were a lot more comfortable, and could be in my regular size, because they sat under the tummy.

  • Not really

  • My undies stretched with me. It wasn’t something I was conscious of.

  • I let my undies grow with me, found that I didn’t need to buy bigger ones.

  • I bought the next size up. You don’t necessarily need to spend a fortune. You aren’t going to be using them for long

  • Nope, mine were no tighter during pregnancy then before pregnant. They’re a little bigger now, after a couple of pregnancies :/ lol

  • yes that means that your body is doing what it is supposed to! we all gain weight during pregnancy. get comfy maternity ones

  • Yeah started to get the next size now, sick of red lines on my legs and feeling uncomfortable.

  • Yes! I found they started cutting in around my legs 1st, so I got bigger ones. Bigger ones are much more comfy after bub is born.

  • You definitely need to go up one size, possibly even two.
    One size should at least stay up instead of rolling down, or digging in either way uncomfortable.

  • That is awesome to know!

  • Definitely a big yes! Good and supportive and comfortable underwear is essential during pregnancy. They also come in handy after birth if extra padding is needed depending on the birth.
