    I’m 18 weeks and have just purchased a selection of maternity knickers, some under-bump and some over-bump (which also support your bump a bit). They are v comfy. I also got some bump bands for extra support. My maternity bra without underwiring has been a must since week 6.

    I’m 29 weeks and have not gotten special underwear. I can wear all my normal thongs, which are lowrise and then select bikini underwear (also lowrise) that I already had.

    I wore regular underwear (bikini style) throughout my entire pregnancy.

    @morkiemama:  Wow – regular bra? Are you comfy with the underwiring? I could not wear my bra past 6 weeks without pain!

    I wore regular underwear the whole time and was able to stay in the same size; I didn’t gain much though since I was already overweight when I got PG.  I did buy one pair of maternity panties towards the end, and I will admit that they were exceedingly comfortable.  They were the underbelly ones from Motherhood Maternity.  Anything tight over my belly made me nauseous for some reason.

    I had to buy larger sizes 🙁 I didn’t buy maternity underwear though, Just large instead of my usual mediums. I also bought fuller coverage bikini and/or hip huggers because they are more comfortable to me at this point. I also like the streatchy fabric instead of cotton. I usually look at marshalls for underwear but I actually just bought these at target over the weekend and they are perfect.

    I bought regular bikini underwear but in a larger size. I didn’t buy good stuff, just cheapo Hanes underwear from Walmart/Target. Actually, if I’m being honest, I bought it 2 sizes up (8 instead of 6).

    I could probably still wear my regular underwear, but why? Maternity underwear is fabulous.

    I wear the Motherhood Maternity brand – hipsters for when I’m wearing pants/things that already have the elastic waist support and then the ones with the bigger bands for when I’m wearing a dress.  Love. I will be really disappointed when I have to go back to regular undewear
