If you had a c-section

Can you wear thongs or any other underwear that are low cut? They're so uncomfortable for me! I hate it! And it's been almost 2 years since my c-section....

  • My c-section was 13 years ago next month and I STILL can't stand when something is riding on the scar...

  • Yikes...

    I hate anything rubbing the scar. I can wear bikini cut but the damn scar shows through it...:-/

    One thing I can't do is shave that area...
    paiiiiiin!!!

  • I know, there is a crease there and my stomach always folds there and my underwear sit there. I hate it

  • I can wear any type of underwear I want. My c-section was 3 years ago but even so, soon after I could wear whatever I wanted.

  • I just had a c-section about three months ago...And though I hate how I look in a thong it doesn't bother me to wear it...It feels pretty much the same...I just don't look in the mirror anymore. :(

  • I have to wear undies that ride either above or below the scar. After 2 years, it's still too sensitive.

  • ME TOO. I HAD A C-SECTION WITH MY LAST CHILD 8 YEARS AGO AND I CAN'T HAVE UNDERWEAR NEAR MY SCAR. IT STILL ITCHES ONCE IN A WHILE AND SOMETIMES STILL IS NUMB.
