Postpartum Underwear For Moms

Top FAQs

What is underwear for postpartum?

Just in case nobody warned you about postpartum bleeding, we will. Postpartum bleeding can last up to 6 weeks (or more) and usually starts heavy before it tapers off to a light spotting. As you begin to search for solutions for postpartum bleeding, you may be turned off by the bulky designs - but trust us, it doesn’t have to be like that.

Meet your new best friend in the fourth trimester, Proof® Postpartum Underwear. Our Postpartum Underwear is buttery soft, absorbent, and washable - because let’s face it, you have enough things going on.

With heavy and super-heavy absorbency options, our underwear features an absorbent core that pulls moisture away from the body, designed to protect from all kinds of leaks. From accident tinkles to postpartum bleeding, embrace the change your beautiful body is going through. Order a pair (or several) of our underwear for postpartum women. . . the Proof® is in the package.

How does postpartum underwear work?

Our postpartum underwear works by wicking away moisture from your body to an absorbent core for smart leak protection. Our patented Leak-Loc™ technology starts at the Quick Wick top layer to keep you comfortable and dry. Liquid will sit on the top of this layer, while any liquid gets pulled in and away from your body and into the Drop Stop and Seep Shield Liner layers for thin yet powerful protection that helps fight odors. All of this is reinforced with buttery-soft waterproof fabric and our Leak-Loc® gusset to lock in moisture. Our most absorbent undies can hold up to 10 tsp of liquid.

How to care for postpartum underwear

Being a new mom is hard, washing your postpartum underwear doesn’t have to be.

Be kind to your undies by using the delicate cycle with cold water and a gentle soap. Feel free to add a little bit of vinegar or tea tree oil to the rinse cycle to keep them extra fresh and smelling great. Hang tight as they hang dry - depending on your underwear’s absorbency level, they might take up to 24 hours to dry fully.

Extra tips for cleaning:

  • Give your underwear a rinse in cold water before washing.
  • A mesh bag will keep your underwear in great shape for longer.
  • Instead of wringing them out, blot out excess moisture before hanging to dry.

How many days do you wear postpartum underwear?

Everyone has a different postpartum experience. With that being said, most wear postpartum underwear or protection for roughly 3 to 6 weeks after giving birth, with the first 10 days being the heaviest bleeding days. After giving birth women can experience bleeding and discharge, which hopefully, your doctor warned you about. When you choose Proof, you choose comfort and leakproof protection, both of which there’s no timeline on. If you choose to wear our underwear beyond the postpartum stage, you won’t be the only one.
