Perhaps the last thing on your mind after you’ve given birth is what underwear to use. But trust us, it pays to think about this before you deliver.

  • 7 postpartum panty brands to choose from

It makes a world of difference to be prepared with your choice of postpartum panty. You’ll want to be comfortable as you take care of your precious newborn and work on your recovery.

Why do you need a postpartum panty?

Two words: vaginal discharge. Also called lochia, vaginal discharge happens on the first three days after delivery. Cleveland Clinic explains that it can be characterized by its dark red color that looks like blood clots.

By the fourth to 10th day, it will be watery and pinkish-brown then yellowish after that. This will continue for most women for about four to six weeks.

Whether you’ve given birth vaginally or via C-section, you need to be as comfortable as you can because you won’t just be caring for yourself; you also have a little one to think about now.

The last thing you should be worrying about is whether your underwear is appropriate for your maternity pads, or if your tummy is supported if you’ve done a belly birth.

Comfort is the name of the game. Support also helps especially for those who had a C-section. For the qualities of good postpartum underwear, here are the things you should look for:

  • comfort – This is paramount because you’ll be using this after your body undergoes a strenuous activity aka giving birth. The quality of fabric also matters.

  • features – Look for supportive underwear. If it helps your tummy shrink to its original size, that’s great, too.
