Did You Wear Granny Panties While Pregnant?

There's nothing less sexy than a big, beige pair of undies, but for expectant women who have packed on the pounds to create another lil human being, comfort may come first.

And, lacy lingerie might be left in the back of the drawer, until it's time to bring sexy back after the postpartum appointment.

Did you forgo g-strings and toss your thongs?

The Motherhood store had maternity thongs. Very comfortable. My but was big enough, I didn't want to worry about a pantyline too.

the hanky panky one size thongs have been perfect! i've been able to wear my regular panties whole pregnancy and they're soo soo comfortable(I'm due in 2 weeks). after the birth....that's a different story.

I didn't bother with maternity undies this time around... I love my gap body girl shorts and thats what I wore and am still wearing (my baby was born Saturday). I haven't had a problem with messes... my pads are pretty big!

I didn't get maternity undies because I didn't want anything up on my belly. But my butt was getting way too large for my regular undies. lol So I just bought some a couple of sizes bigger and they worked perfect. They've been great after baby too since my figure is still not back yet. Oh well, it's only been 5mos.

I've been wearing my regular underwear up until now. I'm tired of how they creep down now that I don't have a waist. I'm buying some granny pants this weekend.

Forget about maternity underwear that are expensive and will only be worn for a few months... I just bought big sized g-strings at Wal-Mart! Super comfy! And you can wear them AFTER baby while waiting for your figure to go back to normal! Besides, who need those visible panty lines, even if you are pregs!

I wore both. Well, I didn't wear maternity granny panties. I got a bunch of the comfy cotton briefs.

I stuck with my low waisted undies. I found it uncomfortable to have things pulled over my baby bump.

I just wore my regular panties. they are all very low waisted... i did that with a lot of pants too just bought one size up (to account for extra hip) and wear them low! I didn't buy anything special for the pregnancy, just for after birth.

well, when I was pregnant (late 80's early 90's) granny panty maternity breifs were pretty much all they had. Japanese Weekend had just come out with under the belly styles and I tried one or two pairs. They were ok. I guess I just wanted comfort and coverage. Now, if I happen to get pregnant from our IVF (May or June) I will not be wearing them. I am so used to hiphugger underwear now that I am definitely going to get them or just keep wearing what I have.

oh my god, mine were so horrible. i am short waisted and by #3 my tummy was so big i had no choice. everything cut my tummy in the wrong place and hurt. when i got rid of those (about 4 or 5 weeks out, it was a happy day :)

I just stayed in regular low rise bikinis and thongs - although I only wore cotton ones while pregnant nothing sexy.

hahah, I got some just b/c of the icki after the birth stuff. I figured why ruin good ones when motherhood had clearance on undies and they were super cheap. I'm due tomorrow by the way. Good luck Peepshow!

I never bought maternity underwear. What's the point? I am wearing grannies now though- but I'm also due in 3 days!! I don't want to 'mess' the good ones.

I'm living in boy shorts and maternity bikinis. My tummy is to hot (temp) to be covered by undies and the pants and the shirt!

Comfort does matter, but I didn't go with the maternity underwear that goes over the belly. I wore cute little low rise undies - in bikinis and thongs. (Old Navy maternity had the most affordable maternity underwear out there!)
