Not an AIBU but what knickers should I wear

This isn't really an AIBU but I don't know where to stick it really and I need brutal honesty!!

I find myself after having my DC years ago left with a very lovely pouch where my stomach used to be Blush and now I'm pregnant again Grin the belly is starting to grow and the pouch is protruding more.
What knickers are most flattering? I normally wear full knickers that go over my pouch but it's making me look huge now and feel really really unattractive, a thong that goes over the pouch then cuts higher at the sides and you can see the side angle of the pouch and again I feel really ugly.

What knickers does everyone wear? Does anyone have any suggestions?? Thank you!!!

You're pregnant. Let it all out and wear what you bloody well like!

Myself - non pregnant - on a day to day basis I wear shorts, but have big suck it all in pants for special occasions.

I'm glad I am not the only one left with an overhanging pouch, I normally wear those sloggi type knickers that hold it all in Grin I really want to get rid of the bloody thing! Congratulations of your pregnancy, and wear whatever makes you feel comfortable Smile

That's the thing though I don't feel comfortable, I don't exactly look pregnant yet my stomach is just rounding but it's making the bloody pouch worse, just want to wear underwear that I still very attractive in so that I can walk around in my pants at home but still feel good!

I'd go with shorts. M&S do some high waisted in a thick supportive material. They come up quite high and have a lacy waistband. On me they are high enough to smooth the pouch out.
