    Do I really need maternity underwear?

    I am still in my regular underwear with no problems. Will I need maternity underwear and if so, when? Old Navy is having a sale and I am not one to pass up a sale, especially when it is getting cooler and I have very little in the way of warmer maternity items.

    I'll be 32 weeks tomorrow and find no difference between maternity undies and regular ones. With the regular one, for more comfort, I went one size up just last week, than what I normally wear. But everyone is different. It also depends on whether you like high tops or low rise. I prefer the low rise because the high ones make me hot and I feel constricted.

    I was wondering the same thing. I am still wearing my bikinis and still find them comfortable but my other pg friends were telling me how great maternity undies feel.

    i didn't wear maternity underwear during my first pg. i just bought regular underwear that were bigger than my regular size. during my second pg one of my sis's kept going on and on about the maternity u/w she found at kohls, so i broke down and bought a pkg (they came in a 3 pack) and fell in love! i guess i didn't realize how much more restrictive regular u/w was until i put those on. of course i went back and bought some more.

    I bought some maternity thongs & bikinis kind of early on at Motherhood because my regular low-rise & bikinis were starting to roll, which I found very, very uncomfortable. I love the thongs, but absolutely hate the bikinis. The legs aren't cut quite high enough for me & it's very uncomfortable to have the underwear right there in the crease of my legs. I've also bought some larger size regular thongs & those are pretty comfortable too. So, I say do what works for you.

    I'm now 30w3d pg with twins, so I'm about the size of a woman full-term with a single baby. I haven't tried maternity underwear, but my regular underwear has been fine. I did buy a few pairs in one size bigger, but I can still wear the others too. I only wear pretty low ones that go under my belly.

    You may as well grab em while they're on sale! I wore regular undies for a while, then went a size larger. Eventually I bought some maternity ones and they were very comfy! Just be sure you buy a style that matches your pants - you don't want to wear over-the-belly undies w/ low-rise maternity pants!

    I never wore them during my first pregnancy and not in this one either. I got some Jockey underwear that are knit and they are very comfy!!!!

    I LOVE my maternity underwear. Many people choose to use reg undies and wear them "under" their belly, or buy bigger. For those that have never tried it I urge you to try some...I bet you won't go back! lol
