7 Pairs Of Postpartum Underwear Every New Mom Needs

The fourth trimester — the first three months after giving birth — isn't easy, emotionally or physically. In addition to the hormone swings and fatigue, it's very likely that your body feels a little foreign. Especially your vagina. While women are opening up about what childbirth is really like now more than ever, some of the postpartum leaking, bleeding, and pain can still be a surprise.

So you'll need all the support you can get — especially from your underwear. Luckily, brands have answered the call for comfortable and leak-proof panties designed specifically for those who have just given birth.

These seven pairs of postpartum panties get rave reviews. Each one offers a targeted benefit, from absorbing leaks to relieving pain. Swipe through to find your perfect fit.


Always Discreet Incontinence & Postpartum Underwear

They're famous for their period pads, but their leak-absorbing postpartum panties are legit too. They're super-absorbent but thin, so it won't feel like you're wearing a diaper. Plus, they're disposable, so you don't have to worry about cleaning them.

Pretty Pushers Postpartum Underwear

If you're experiencing any swelling or pain, these machine-washable panties have thoughtfully placed compartments to hold soothing ice packs. Plus, they come in cuter colors than many postpartum options.

UpSpring Baby C-Section Underwear

These high-rise undies are targeted for women who've had C-sections. They have a silicone panel that's meant to protect the incision from irritation, and they offer just enough safe compression to reduce swelling.

Washable Mesh Pants Postpartum Underwear

Love letters have been written about the disposable mesh underwear hospitals give to new moms. These babies are even better. They'll stretch enough to accommodate the large pads many women need to wear postpartum, they're supportive, and they are insanely comfy. Plus, these are washable.

INNERSY High Cut Tummy Control Cotton Underpants


These high-waist panties have no seam on the side of the waistband, which means it won't irritate your post-baby skin or incision scars. These are so simple and comfortable, you may want to continue wearing them after the postpartum period is over.
