  • I've never outgrown my undies while pregnant. I wear lowcut bikinis any way and they always fit just fine under my belly all the way through.

  • i bought them with my first pregnancy and even wore them afterward because i did not want to stain my sexy undies...LOL. I don't think it is an absolute necessity, but they are not that expensive. I bought mine at Wal-Mart and got 3 pair in a package. Don't remember exatly how much i paid, but they were cheap enoug.

  • Nope. I bought men's boxes in size XL, and gave them to my husband after the baby was born.

  • I didnt even know they made maternity underwear and I'm pregnant with my second. I guess you learn something new every day.

  • I wore bikinis during my first pregnancy, but after the c-section my mom went and got me granny panties because mine were cutting right across the scar. I wore those for a while then went to regular rather than bikini.  that scar itched for years!

  • I have a few pair of maternity undies and they are very comfy, but most of my regular cotton panties still work just fine. I think it is a personal call. You can get them at a normal price if you just look around, or you can get regular panties in a size larger just to allow a little "growing" room. I do recomend you get the low cut kind.

  • I couldn't tolerate anything against my belly so just went with lowcut bikinis

  • For my 2nd and 3rd pregnancy I just wore Hanes cotton bikinis. I hated how high up on me the maternity underwear came. It drove me nuts.
