Disposable briefs are horrible anyway! I got some cheap high waisted full briefs from a supermarket, in a size 18 I think (usually a 12-14). They worked fine.

Just get massive cheap very high waisted ones. I went 2 sizes up from asda. Your belly will stay big for a while until your uterus shrinks and the stretched skin pulls in.

I managed with buying massive high waist Tesco pants in a 18. Normally a 16.

I used Primark high waisted ones and thought they were fab. Good luck flowers

Another vote for Primark high waisted. So much nicer than disposables.

M&S microfibre full brief. Really stretchy and comfortable. took me months to stop wearing them

Another vote for primark high waisted ones. I'm a 12-14 & got the 18-20 ones. They were so comfortable, wore them a lot longer than I needed to!

@AnUtterIdiot I got mine from primark. They weren’t maternity pants, I just chose the biggest style of pants they do and bought them 2 sizes too big. The Midwife nodded her approval of them when she was checking my scar.

I got some Asda high waisted cotton briefs. I didn't have a section but found by the end of my pregnancy I was longing to be in some big knickers grin. I was a 12 at the time and got a 16, they were so fab and comfy I still sleep in them now!
Good luck OP.

High waisted and cotton if possible. I did get some post section briefs that were nylon and tbh it was fine, but I had a very unremarkable section and healed very quickly.

Op 2 weeks after section I was same size as pre pregnancy so don't worry!

I was the same - I wore DP's boxers!! So I would say a pack of cheap stretchy boxers, like from burtons or somewhere.

Oh and get black ones. It isn't going to be pretty however careful you are! smile

(I mean with the pp bleeding, NOT the sight of you in the pants!!!)

Primark high waisted pants in a size larger for me too, perfect!

mummabubs Thu 02-Nov-17 18:25:04

Yet another vote for primary high waisted ones- I bought them when I was told I'd probably need a section- in the end I had a vaginal delivery but forceps and episiotomy. I'm wearing a pair of the Primani pants now and they're v comfortable!!

Currently wearing Tesco granny knickers 😂😂 soo comfy! I went 2 sizes up so will do me for a while (nearly 14wks)
