How does maternity underwear work?
The best maternity underwear is designed with technical fabrics that can absorb the bladder leaks that are common during pregnancy. Belly Bandit’s collection of maternity underwear means you don’t have to worry about wearing a pantyliner or dealing with an “oops!” moment after you cough, laugh, or sneeze.
What type of maternity undies does Belly Bandit carry?
We offer four different styles of maternity underwear, including two styles of maternity briefs, a lace cheeky version, and an ultra-comfy maternity thong. They range from ultra-light to moderate absorbency, so there’s an option for every type of mama-to-be.
What makes maternity underwear different from regular underwear?
Maternity underwear usually has plenty of stretch to accommodate a growing belly, and generally falls into two style categories: high-waisted maternity underwear that fit over the belly, or low-rise versions that sit just below it.
Do I really need maternity underwear?
Some mamas choose to simply size up in their favorite style of non-maternity underwear, which works as long as you’re comfortable. But as your belly grows, you might find that you want the comfort of seamless maternity underwear, or you want to feel more confident that your underwear can absorb those surprise bladder leaks. That’s where we come in!

How do you choose the right size of underwear during maternity?
The most important thing is to choose maternity underwear that is comfortable for you—that means no chafing, rubbing, or pinching. The best maternity underwear is designed to grow with you, stretching to support your belly while staying in place. You should be safe opting for your regular size, but size up whenever a pair starts to feel uncomfortably tight.
How do I know if my underwear is too small?
If your underwear feels uncomfortable during all-day wear, or you notice pinching, chafing, or rubbing, it’s time to try a new size or style.
What maternity underwear should I wear during labor?
While you most likely won’t be wearing underwear once real labor has started, some expectant moms choose to wear light-colored maternity underwear in the final weeks of pregnancy, so it’s easier to spot discharge that signals your baby is on its way into the world.
What kind of underwear do I need after giving birth?

Some new moms opt to wear C-section recovery shorts, postpartum smoothing shorts, or our postpartum sculpting girdle. The right option for you depends on what type of delivery you had and what postpartum issues you might be experiencing.
