C-Panty C Section Panty High Waist (2 Pack)
What’s better than one C-Panty C Section Recovery Panty? Two, of course! C-Panty is a patented postpartum undergarment that provides a clinically determined safe level of compression to help your body recover faster. It also helps you stay comfortable as you recover, whether you’re going back to work, chasing after kids, or just enjoying your new baby. With our 2-pack, you can have one in the wash and still have one to wear.
C-Panty has a medical-grade silicone panel that minimizes scarring, helps reduce itchiness, and helps minimize the possible chance of infection around the delicate incision area. The silicone is durable, washable, and integrated into the panty, eliminating the need for scar gel or scar gel pads. C-Panty also helps to reduce swelling, supports weakened muscles, and banishes that incision bulge. No hooks, straps, or Velcro®, so nothing will irritate your incision area. You can start wearing C-Panty right after delivery. If you choose to wear before your incision is healed, which is typically 2 weeks post c section, we recommend you cover the incision area with a panty liner attached to your C-Panty to protect your incision area.

Once your incision has closed (about 7-10 days) you can discontinue covering the silicone panel. Is C-Panty machine washable?
Yes. Wash it on the “delicate” or “hand wash” cycle, and line dry. Do not put it in the dryer. C-Panty uses washable silicone that lasts up to a year with proper care. C-Panty is subject to U.S. Patent No. 5.980.923 and U.S. Patent No. 7.934.507.

How C-Panty Works
Because they have just had surgery, moms who undergo C-sections have specific recovery issues that others don’t experience. Bloating and post-surgical swelling is quite common. Muscles are weakened from pregnancy and surgery. Movement can be uncomfortable; coughing, laughing, and even holding the baby can cause pain. The incision area can be sensitive, irritated, and red. Some mothers also develop a C-section “bulge” or “shelf” around the incision area due to the excess fluids their bodies retain after surgery.
C-Panty addresses all these C-section issues in two ways.
It’s long been known that compression can help to reduce swelling. C-Panty is a convenient, comfortable way to provide ongoing compression to reduce swelling and help speed your recovery.* Compression can also help inhibit excessive scar tissue formation, and may reduce the chance of subsequent medical treatment for painful keloid scarring. The medical-grade compression provided by C-Panty is carefully calibrated to provide just the right amount of compression for someone who has just had surgery. Too little compression will not give you the support you need. But too much compression can be dangerous, because it pushes post-surgical fluids into your incision area, causing more swelling, more fluid retention in the wrong area, and discomfort. Excessive compression can also actually slow the healing process. C-Panty’s just-right compression reduces swelling and helps you recover safely.
Medical Grade Silicone
C-Panty is the only C-section recovery panel with built in silicone. Medical grade silicone is the only material recognized by the FDA to treat and manage scarring.
In the weeks following surgery, the C-section procedure may cause a scar that may be itchy, hot to the touch and painful. C-Panty’s built in 100% silicone panel is precisely positioned over your C-section incision to provide professional medical grade scar therapy.* Worn consistently, C-Panty’s silicone panel will protect your incision and help speed recovery. Silicone suppresses the formation of excess or improperly formed collagen, which can contribute to scarring. Silicone therapy is more effective the sooner it is started. You can wear C-Panty immediately after delivery; simply cover the silicone panel with a panty liner or pad. Once the incision has healed you can discontinue covering the silicone panel.
What makes C-Panty different from other compression underwear?
C-Panty uses patented medical grade compression and a 100% silicone panel to speed recovery after C-section. This all in one solution promotes comfort, minimizes scarring and may reduce the possible chance of infection.* Medical grade silicone, commonly used in burn and other post-surgical rehab, helps retain moisture in the incision area to decrease scarring. Compression discourages swelling, assists in organizing collagen formation, and provides support to the area. These techniques, often called scar management, also help to address the pain, itching, discomfort and size of scar during recovery.
What is medical grade silicone?
Medical grade silicone is a non-toxic synthetic polymer. It does not irritate or react to skin, body fluids, or other tissue. It is commonly used in medical tubing and medical devices. It has been shown to be therapeutic for scar treatment.
Can C-Panty be used after other abdominal surgeries like a hysterectomy?
Yes. While originally designed to be worn after C-section, C-Panty’s anatomical compression and silicone panel can help speed recovery and increase comfort after hysterectomy and other abdominal surgeries. (Learn more here)
What’s the difference between C-Panty and abdominal binders and compression panties?
Binders support the tummy, and support panties can provide all-over compression, but neither addresses the C-section incision area. Because they are not designed for C-section surgeries, both options can provide too much pressure during the sensitive recovery period.
C-Panty’s patented design provides gentle, focused compression at the C-section incision, which truly helps reduce recovery symptoms. C-Panty is also the only C-section recovery garment that provides everything you need for C-section recovery care. Best of all, it works without the bulk of a binder and without the discomfort of control panties that are simply too tight for the post-operative new mom.
The itchiness and irritation around my incision are bothering me. Can C-Panty help?
Yes! C-Panty is the only after C-section recovery underwear with an interior medical grade silicone panel that helps to reduce itching, pain, and sensitivity.* The compression helps to control swelling, which in turn helps comfort the incision area.
Does C-Panty address the raised incision that can occur with a C-section?
C-Panty’s customized compression over the entire C-section incision area supports and reduces swelling around the “c-shelf” or bulge around your incision.
Will C-Panty help minimize healing time?
Healing is a biologic process that happens no matter what we do, but C-Panty can help speed things along. We put bandages on our children’s cuts and ice on their bumps. We wrap ankle sprains. Scarring, swelling, tenderness, and surgical recovery are a reality for 1.3 million C-section moms annually and recovery can be painful without recovery aids like C-Panty.
