1. Intimate Portal Women Under the Bump Pregnancy Underwear

Of all the pregnancy underwear, the Intimate Portal Women Under the Bump Maternity Panties Pregnancy Underwear is my favorite. With their low rise in the front and full coverage in the rear, they provide exactly what I look for in a maternity panty.

Features

The body of the panty is made of 95% cotton and 5% Spandex. This allows for breathability and a comfortable fit. The cotton feels nice on your skin, and the Spandex helps to ensure that your underwear has some stretch and give to it.

There is a 100% cotton, light colored crotch inner liner. Intimate Portal specifically uses light colored liners to make it easier for you to notice spotting.

The classic crossover style of the Intimate Portal Women Under the Bump Maternity Panties Pregnancy Underwear makes it easier to wear panties while your baby grows. If you’re not very far in to your pregnancy yet, you haven’t already experienced the panty crisis that comes with the third trimester. As your baby grows and drops, it significantly impacts your relationship with your underwear. In fact, your growing baby can make wearing regular underwear nearly impossible. That’s why this crossover style is so important. It’s a gradual “V” in the front of your panties that helps to avoid your baby.

This maternity panty offers full rear coverage. Sometimes, maternity panties can feel very skimpy. It can be tough to find panties that have reduced material in the front to allow for the baby and still have enough fabric in the back to cover your whole bottom.

Another benefit to these undies is that you can wear them postpartum. The low rise front can be particularly beneficial for anyone healing from a C-section.

Possible Issues

  • Make sure that you read the instructions about how to choose your size. That being said, some women who followed the instructions still felt like the underwear ran smaller than expected. Others found that they were too loose.
  • The lace trim is especially prone to fray.
  • As with any article of clothing, there may be manufacturing issues. This means you could have your liner misaligned with the crotch of your panty or other things like that.

2. GIFTPOCKET Women’s Under Bump Maternity Underwear

If you’re not interested in the Intimate Portal Women Under the Bump Maternity Panties Pregnancy Underwear, I recommend the GIFTPOCKET Women’s Under Bump Maternity Panties Healthy Underwear. It was only by a small margin that these pregnancy undies came in second place.

Features

The GIFTPOCKET Women’s Under Bump Maternity Panties Healthy Underwear is made with premium cotton. This means the undies will be soft and comfortable.

The crotch is made of 100% cotton. Cotton liners are incredibly common in undies because they make them more hygenic.

The crossover design ensures that your undies won’t be impacted by your baby bump. Because of the rather low “V” in the front, the growth (or descending) of your baby shouldn’t impact how your undies fit.

This style of underwear offers moderate rear coverage. This means that your bottom won’t be fully covered.

These undies are machine washable. With all the other challenges that come with pregnancy, the last thing is need is to worry about how to care for your underwear.

Possible Issues

  • Make sure that you read the instructions about how to choose your size. That being said, some women who followed the instructions still felt like the underwear ran smaller than expected. Others found that they were too loose.
  • Since people are shaped differently, what’s comfortable and just right for one person might not be so for another.
  • This undie doesn’t fully cover your bottom. This could be a deterrent for some people.
  • As with all articles of clothing, there may be manufacturing issues.

3. Hanky Panky Signature Lace Original Rise Thong

The good news is that most thongs really tend to work well with your baby bump. So, if you’re a pregnant thong lover, it’s very likely that whatever you have will still work during your pregnancy. However, if you’re looking for some lingerie to spice up date night or just wanting to add to your stash, I recommend the Hanky Panky Signature Lace Original Rise Thong.

Features

Although this thong is marketed as a regular thong, it will definitely work as a maternity thong. With its low rise style, the Hanky Panky Signature Lace Original Rise Thong should allow enough room for your baby to grow. This is important because you don’t want your bump to push down your underwear.

This style of Hanky Panky thong sits higher on the hips than some of their other styles, which should help your panties stay put even as your baby grows and moves.

These panties are made of soft, stretchable cotton and lace. Plus, they come in three colors.

Possible Issues

  • Thongs are often listed as one size fits all. It’s very rarely true that one garment can fit one person in the exact same way that it fits another, so be prepared.
  • It appears that if you wear larger than a size 14, these thongs might not be the best choice for you.
  • As with all articles of clothing, there may be manufacturing issues.

4. NBB Lingerie Women’s Adjustable High Cut Cotton Over Bump Underwear

Sometimes in pregnancy, over the bump underwear is just more comfortable. For example, if your belly button starts to pop out and is sensitive, you might want something to cover and protect that delicate area. If you’re searching for some over the bump coverage, I would choose NBB Lingerie Women’s Adjustable Maternity Panties High Cut Cotton Over Bump Underwear Brief.

Features

This over the belly underwear is 100% cotton, which means that it will be soft, comfortable, and breathable.

The main tummy section expands as your baby grows. Directly beneath this part of the panties is a light tummy support band. The support band is fully integrated into the panty, so there’s no annoying seams.

Possible Issues

  • Since people are shaped differently, what’s comfortable and just right for one person might not be so for another. Some people have complained that the undies were an awkward fit for them, that there wasn’t enough coverage of the bottom.
  • Because of the nature of this style of underwear, it might leave a noticeable panty line along your waist.
  • As with all articles of clothing, there may be manufacturing issues.

5. Cosabella Women’s Never Say Never Maternity Hot Pant

Many people don’t realize that wearing a pair of fun or sexy undies can help lift your mood. When you choose to wear a specific pair of underwear, you’re doing something for yourself. No one has to see what you’ve chosen; it’s for your eyes only. If you’re looking for a great pair of lacy maternity panties, try the  Cosabella Women’s Never Say Never Maternity Hot Pant.

Features

These undies are 50% cotton, 28% polyamide, 12% elastane, and 10% viscose. If you’re like me, you might have no idea what polyamide, elastane, and viscose are. Polyamide is another name for certain synthetic fibers like nylon. Elastane is a common elastic material used in underwear, panty hose, and other close-fitting garments. Viscose is rayon fabric or fiber.

There is a cotton liner in the crotch of the panties. This helps the panties stay hygenic and breaathable.

The scalloped lace at the top and around the leg holes of the underwear provide a delicate design. Also, the lace helps the panties to lie flat on the skin and avoid irritation.

The Cosabella Women’s Never Say Never Maternity Hot Pant have a cheeky fit, so expect that this undie will not fully cover your bottom.

Possible Issues

  • Since people are shaped differently, what’s comfortable and just right for one person might not be so for another.
  • This undie doesn’t fully cover your bottom. This could be a deterrent for some people.
  • As with all articles of clothing, there may be manufacturing issues.
  • It’s recommended that you hand wash these delicate undies.

My Recommendation

Underwear is a very private issue normally. To me, it felt especially private during my pregnancy. Although I would recommend the Intimate Portal Women Under the Bump Maternity Panties Pregnancy Underwear as my top choice, that’s based on my personal preference.

All of the above listed undies should be the best of their style. Simply pick the style that suits you best and give it a try. My hope is that during this challenging time of life, you can at least have comfortable undies.
