Ahh the beauty of birth. That first glimpse of your newborn, those first skin-to-skin moments, the enormous panties they give you immediately after. That’s right: Stretchy hospital underpants (and their absence of irritating waistbands) are an absolute must-have, because they make the delicate days of C-section recovery possible. You'll need a few (dozen) more pairs than what they send you home with, of course. So where can you find cute granny panties for your C-section recovery period?
Now sure, at first blush the idea of spending significant money on giant underwear might sound less than thrilling. But trust us, you’re going to want a few pairs of these for many reasons. First, the only cute thing that comes out of labor and delivery is your kid. The rest looks, well, like a crime scene. Not exactly the kind of thing you want soiling your La Perla lingerie. And frankly, those fancy lace undergarments won't feel so great for a little while yet.
