I am 5'3, 155 lbs prepregnancy. I gained 30lbs during. I ordered a large for immediate pp and a medium for later. The large was grrat with grest support. I wore it home from the hospital over the mesh undies from the hospital. I did this at all times for the first 3 or 4 days. Then I was ready to put on the mediums. I washed them together in the 10th day and realized how much of a difference they made and could not wait to get them back on!
These briefs helped tremendously post c section. They gave me the compression I needed to be comfortable
HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Bought the nude and black colors and have really enjoyed these. I wear them at night with pajamas and often during the day under my BB compression leggings. I do wear them over my panties so I don’t have to wash them so often. They have given me just the right amount of c section scar compression without feeling like a girdle.
It really helps hold in the pouch and keep the swelling down. My incision is really low and the compression covered it perfectly. It also keeps your clothes from rubbing against your scar and helps to reduce the pain. I wish the waist was higher because it tends to roll down.
