Oh Baby! The 5 Pairs Every Woman Needs During Pregnancy

Our specialty is finding the best underwear for every woman’s shape and size, and that includes our moms-to-be! The differences may seem nuanced, but ask any pregnant woman who will vouch for the fact that all your senses are heightened and every comfort matters during this special time.

Here are our 5 tips for the best underwear during pregnancy:

1. Forgiving elastic

Your belly will grow. And grow. And grow… Seek pairs with stretchy elastic waist bands to avoid unnecessary pressure and discomfort.

2. Soft materials

Sensitive skin during pregnancy is common because of increased hormone levels and because your skin stretches as your baby grows. Underwear made from natural fibers can reduce skin irritation around the bump, hips, thighs and butt.

3. Moisture wicking

When you’re pregnant, your body produces extra estrogen and progesterone which triggers heavier discharge. Look for breathable materials like cotton (especially for the gusset), or pairs made specifically with moisture wicking fabrics to help keep you comfortable.

4. Pad-compatible

Sometimes moisture wicking will not be enough, especially postpartum. Bikinis are your best option so that pad wings have just enough material to wrap around and stay in place.

5. Low-rise fit

Styles that sit below the bump and don’t put pressure on the belly. This style is particularly great for post C-section recovery.

… And a bonus tip: Pairs as sexy as you want!

Just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean you have to seek boring, functional pairs. Several studies show your pregnancy glow and increased hormones can amp up your sex life. ProTip: Cosabella’s classic Never Say Never thong comes in a maternity style with stretch lace and cotton gusset.
