These are brilliant. My poor daughter had to have a hysterectomy and I didn't know whether it would be laparoscopy or open, through her C-scar. In the end she had to have both. These were the perfect and only solution. They are comfortable, let air get to the scars without hurting, held the pad well and comfortably and avoided pressure but give a gentle, very light but effective holding because they are like a netting. They avoid pressure on the belly button and tummy scars and also now the bikini line scar. My thanks too to the very helpful assistant who helped me find the right thing.

Theres no denying it, these are the most ugly pants you'll ever buy! But I'm currently a size 18-20 on the backside and they fit - will need a small snip on the thigh opening for extra comfort (they fit but imagine they may feel tight after a while) and are apparently perfect for after a c section as they allow the wound to breathe. No looking forward to wearing them but imagine I'll be glad I have them :-)

Great purchase, exactly what I needed for the hospital.

I have had a c-section and these pants were very comfortable, did let my scar breathe and were soft on my skin. They can be washed. I would recommend even if not having a CS

These knickers were recommended to me by a friend who had undergone a c section. I ordered 2 packs when I found out I was having an elective c section. They are super comfortable, easy to put on (when you can't bend over) and they are washable which is essential. They hold maternity pads nicely in place. They appear tiny in the packet which worried me at first but looked like they would adequately stretch. I'm a size 10-12 and they fit me very well. Extremely pleased with purchase.

I bought these for my friend who has recently had a baby by C-section and she said how comfortable they were.

These hospital knickers are the best thing to wear after a C-section delivery. they are soft comfortable and non abrasive, and allow the scar to heal and breathe. I recommend them for the first 4 days.

Very comfortable and ideal for post ceserean operation.

Great knickers for after birth. Very soft and comfortable. I have bought a new pack for second baby.

After 2 planned Csections I think these are wonderful! Definitely helps with the scar and my midwives even think they are fantastic as the wound heals faster. The leg holes could be a little bigger but I've found a little 1" snip with scissors and then they're really comfy.

Hated these. I am a 12 pre-pregnancy & obviously was swollen with twins but these were so tight around the tops of my thighs

Not what I was expecting. They come in a itchy mesh material. I've had two previous c sections and booked in for my third in a few weeks time and I can only imagine how much the rough mesh would irritate the wound. Great bonus that they are washable but these are far from flattering. Excellent customer service and delivery and I was quickly refunded when I returned these.

Brilliant knickers for hospital and for at home after the birth. They wash well and are comfortable.

Although a lot better than the hospital disposable pants, these were a bit tight on the thighs and I am not particularly bigly shaped. Also as this is a mess version you will have some stickyness from your pads if you wear the type with sticky backs. So okay but leave the backing on the sticky pad and stretch the legs a bit.

These knickers are so much comfier than regular disposable knickers. These don't pinch, ride up or aggravate your skin. I had an emergency c-section and these were a life saver - felt so much more comfortable in these knowing the waistband wouldn't roll down and rub my wound/dressing, not like the regular type.
