I was interested in these as I already have the High-Waisted Postpartum Recovery Panties, which were my favorite postpartum from my first baby and a pregnancy favorite so far with my second. Boy oh boy am I glad I ventured to the French Cut Brief. The waist band was instant comfort the second I pulled them on. I believe I even said, “oh my goodness that’s great” as I pulled them on the first time. the waist band is super thin yet still somehow supportive without feeling restrictive as I’m carrying very low and forward this time. Even with the over the belly pants/shorts, I don’t feel them competing for space as I do with some of my other brands. The other thing I was surprised is the lack of wedgies! Let’s face it, it becomes something we just get accustomed to but so far they stay where they are intended to be on the cheeks so hopefully after a few washes this remains the case. The material is stretchy yet breathable and has washed very well so far, so I’m hopeful that will be what I find. If you prefer a cotton undie that has more structure, these might take some getting used to at first as the feel is very light. It also has been unseasonably hot and the fabric is very conducive to heat so I have remained cool and as comfortable as a third trimester mom to be can be in the summer heat! I will definitely be getting more of these.
