    I used a tummy band which was great, rode up a bit and needed fiddling a bit but was worth it. The Physio at hospital gave it to me... I found without it by end of day my trousers ( no matter how loose) would feel heavy pulling down on scar, without it. Think it's because ur skin/ sub cut tissue is semi tied down to muscle until re sorts itself out and sutures dissolve) I don't do dresses esp in winter. I wore it round the clock for first 2-3 wks. I just wore my reg G-strings whole preg and post op found them great, gs hold a pad well. ( the m-w were a bit surprised, kind of indicated I didn't need to impress anyone but that's what I'm comfy in, it's been 20 y since I wore reg briefs much....)

    Default C-Sec Compression Underwear

    I used tubey grip (partial separation) and although I loved the firm feeling, it wasn't very practical for the incision/scar. Sometimes it would roll up and dig in at the incision or I had to pull it down really low to an annoying length to compensate. The easiest and cheapest option was 'spanx' style knickers. Really firm and super comfortable, I wore one or the other for months! The shorts seem really expensive and you'd need more than one wouldn't you? FYI I also tried a belly band but found it super uncomfortable

    I used the tubey grip from the hospital and then the SRC shorts about a month after. The SRC shorts were amazing, if you buy new you can claim them on your private health and they hold their value so can resell (I sold mine on eBay)
