Underwear help!

Is anyone else’s underwear doing their head in? I’ve got supposedly maternity underwear (thongs), that are ‘under bump’, but they keep on rolling themselves down into an uncomfortable mess and it’s driving me insane! :cross: I’m considering buying some huge over bump pants just so that I can continue to be in a nice sweet mood all day!

Does anyone have any recommendations for good maternity knickers? I want to get some!

I used plain big girl knickers (but quite low) good old cotton and they were lovely!
I also got some over bump maternity pants (second hand from a friend since I am not fussy :D ) and they were also good but a bit uncomfy... I think that the plain cotton pants were a winner!!!

I haven't used MAternity undies either, i just buy the a bigger sized Bridget Jones style from M&S, they do the trick or what is comfy is the hipster style short knickers, they sit just under your bump and across your hips & can get them from M&S too.

I'm still having problems with boulder holders!

I just used my ordinary knickers. I thjink I needed a bigger size by the end though. I also had these…322031&mcb=core
Which were really comfy. DON'T get the synthetic ones though, has to be cotton!

I bought some biggie ones from Primark. You are right French, they do my bonce in when they keep roling over, they are sooo uncomfortable as is everything with my body at the mo. I dont know what it feels like to pick something up without moaning. Ha.

I used to wear my hubbys undies when I was pregnant. (Before the days when boxers were in vogue). They were dead comfy, men are soooo lucky! (I didn't wear them for hospital or midwife check ups though cos that would have looked weird, and I'm not....honest!)

I had this problem too, it drove me mad!!....I started wearing a larger size of normal knickers, and this was fine until my bump started expanding rapidly, and that is when the rolling down problem started! I got some under the bump, mind/midi knickers, in a bigger size, from mothercare, and they were really comfy (infact as I still have some baby weight to shift, am still wearing them now, as they are so comfy!!)

I got a few pairs the ones Mrs Jasper recommended from mothercare. The cool thing is that they have bump and back support panels so they really fit really well. DH thinks they are hilarious but I don't care! :P Thanks for the advice!
