Maternity lingerie brand Cantaloop has designed a brief for women to wear after a caesarian operation.
The high-waist garment features a smooth panel, which, when worn, is located over the site of the incision.
It is designed to keep a dressing in place and its smooth fabric prevents it from catching on stitches, staples or beads used to close the wound.
The fabric is also breathable, according to the brand, and allows air to circulate around the wound to promote quick healing.
The light support and compression of the garment is designed to control swelling after surgery.
