Intimate Portal Under-the-Bump Maternity Panties
If this is your first pregnancy, you’ll soon realize how uncomfortable regular panties get with a large belly. We recommend wearing under-the-bump panties for ultimate comfort.
Made from cotton and spandex, this set of six panties is a good deal. They feature a classic crossover style that ensures they fit perfectly without any pressure.
Full rear coverage and a low front section also make them great for C-section recovery. You can also wear them as regular panties after delivery.
Hofish Seamless Maternity Bralettes
We loooove these soft, cozy bralettes. When your body is changing, your boobs crave something soft and expandable too. Designed for maximum comfort, these bralettes are made from spandex and nylon. And you get three pairs for the price of (or less than) one maternity bra by many other brands.
One of the upsides is that they’re adjustable and feature a hook and eye closure. The other is that they double as nursing bras with easy-drop cups, so they’ll get many months of use. You’ll like how they’re seamless, with a side-widening feature for extra support.

It’s made from a breathable elastic fabric, and if navy isn’t your favorite color, it also comes in more than 20 other solid and patterned options. While it’s more suitable for summer, you could wear it with a cardigan and tights in the transition months. We appreciate the practicality and versatility here: dress it up or down; it’s up to you.

Palazzo pants are great for lounging at home on those lazy days. These are the ultimate comfort pants for any pregnant woman. They’re wide-legged, making them a perfect choice when you seem to be swollen all over.
