We asked, what garment would we make to help women that suffer from vulvar varicosities, whether during pregnancy or not, that suffer from prolapses, and that would help those that have hernias or may get them? We looked around and found a lot of contraptions that were made of elastics wrapped around and around and we said no that’s not it!. We need a garment that is just that, a garment, a boxer brief, a panty that may be worn everyday just the same way women wear their regular underwear already. So we went to work and created it.
The Underworks Vulvar Varicosity Support Underwear Briefs are made to be highly effective in alleviating pain and reducing symptoms associated with vaginal swelling. Also known as vulvar varicosities, these are varicose veins at the outer surface of the female genitalia (vulva). They occur most often during pregnancy. As a result, blood pools in the veins of your lower extremities as well as your vulvar region causing vulvar varicosities or Lymphedema.
- Unique underwear design with built in bands that provide support and compression to reduce swelling in the vulvar veins and to provide the needed support to the pelvic floor muscles to relieve symptoms associated with Uterine prolapse, Cystocele, and Rectocele.
- Wear during or after pregnancy including post C-sections for relief from vulvar varicosities, vulvar swelling, and Lymphedema. This garment uses a cotton crotch that works as a sleeve for shields that would be very helpful in the event of vaginal discharge common when vaginal infections such as candidiasis are present.
- An inguinal hernia occurs in the abdomen near the groin area. They develop when fatty or intestinal tissues push through a weakness in the abdominal wall near the right or left inguinal canal. Each inguinal canal resides at the base of the abdomen. This beautiful brief is effective in creating a firm lower abdominal artificial wall of support that alleviates pain caused by existing hernias such as Inguinal hernia and Femoral hernia and to help in prevention of future hernias.
- Made with a smooth stretch cotton feeling fabric that is firm yet gentle - draw cord waistband allows you to place the garment in the right location and tighten as you need - features a cotton crotch that also works as a shield sleeve
- Made with pride in the USA
