Best Maternity Knickers, Tried & Tested By Expectant Mums

You’ll be needing some maternity knickers if you’re expecting a baby. Aside from all those other maternity clothes (read: maternity jeans, maternity leggings, maternity nightwear/pyjamas and a baby changing bag), moisture-wicking pregnancy underwear is a must. During your first trimester, maternity underwear might not seem like such an important purchase – but you’d be surprised at how quickly you’ll change your mind.

Far from an indulgent or frivolous buy, the best maternity knickers are often the difference between feeling as though you’re being cut in half from too-tight waistbands and, well, supreme comfort. I know which one I’d opt for. Breaking news: your body changes quickly, so you might as well adapt to it.

Put it this way: when you’ve got someone’s wedding to attend, where you’ll be wearing one of your best maternity wedding guest dresses, the last thing you want is your pre-pregnancy thong digging in and giving you a VPL. Maternity pants are a stretchy and sure-fire way to guarantee comfort for you, make incontinence more comfortable, and support your bump.

Maternity briefs are something you’ll depend upon come bedtime, too – alongside your body pillow and nursing bra or sleep bra. A full night’s kip is imperative when you’re creating a little human being, so some comfy maternity undies with high absorbency will only help you drift off. And no, they don’t have to be Bridget Jones-style pants, either (though, let’s be honest, they look like the most comfortable pair ever).
