Disadvantages: Not very attractive
I am sure every mum to be is warned of the blood loss after labour. The way my midwife explained it I thought a low budget slash flick was going to be taking place in my knickers! But it made me go out and buy some disposable maternity knickers as I didn't want my pretty knickers to end up being ruined.
I purchased the maternity knickers from Boots who were selling boxes of 5 pairs. They cost £2.19 which I didn't think was too bad. The packaging is blue and white and looks a little bit clinical. The knickers are available in 3 sizes - 10/12, 14/16 and 18/20. They are made of 100% polyproprene which is like a very thin cotton. Each pair of knickers is wrapped in cellophane.
I called these maternity knickers my Bridget Jones' pants - they are huge! I refused to let my husband have a glance at them through fear he wouldn't recover (though once I was wearing them after I had had our daughter my pride and everything that goes with it had well and truly disappeared).The knickers literally come right up to your belly button! The knickers are a snug fit and hold a sanitary towel in place securely. They have an elasticated waist and legs for a comfortable fit. I would suggest you go for the bigger size in these rather than the smaller or your regular size. I was usually a size 10/12 so purchased the 14/16 and they fit perfectly. They are just a small cut.
Although you won't see these on a catwalk anytime soon they are practical for after birth and not ruining all your nice and sexy underwear (which you will hopefully get back into! I didn't quite snap back straight away. It took another few months for me! ). And the best thing of all is you won't ever have to see them again as they go straight into the bin after use!
I would definately recommend these for your hospital bag although you won't feel sexy in them (and probably won't particularly care after labour!) they are very practical and a good thing to take with you when the big day comes.
