    Default Underwear for C-Section

    I went just plain black high cut briefs from best and less. Hubby ended up buying me more and then I just chucked the really yucky ones after wearing them (I had quite a bit of bleeding).

    LOL same! I ended up with an infected scar and my GP said nope, those undies aren't big enough, they need to go to here (stands up and puts her hands under her boobs )

    This! I found them to be really comfortable too.

    I wore hipsters they sat just under my incision or as suggested put a pad over your scar and undies/clothing sits on it, the MW taught me that with DD4

    I liked the kind of lacy/meshy ones from cotton on, in a size bigger then normal. They sat exactly where the cut was but because they were so thin and lightweight I didn't feel it.

    I tried granny pants but felt so uncomfy! The only problem is I dont know how the cotton on ones would go at holding a big pad- I was able to get away with a regular slim pad on day 2 and that fit perfectly

    I'd take a few choices!

    I wore just hipsters - bonds - but my scar is quite low so it wasn't a problem.

    But I bought granny undies for birthing katelyn.... and guilty confession I still wear them. Lol.
