Your absorbent lingerie dedicated to Post-partum
In 2020, as the world stopped because of the COVID epidemic, there has been a sad decline in women's freedom of having control over their own body and fully experience their motherhood.
This is how an idea came up into Audrey’s mind, our creator. On her scale, she had the urge to take part in women's body liberation by freeing them from the constraints they may encounter in their life as a mom. Quite naturally, she focused on the postpartum period: this moment when being self-confident is essential.
The challenge? Combine the comfort and femininity of Cache Coeur and the super absorbent powers of Curve , in order to combine softness and performance, all in an ethical and eco-responsible approach, values dear to both brands.
“Feel free every day and wherever you are”
What is postpartum?
Technically, this is the period between childbirth and the come back of your period . Some professionals agree that it even lasts longer.
Physically, it is notably indicated by lochia . The body gets rid of the endometrium, the blood wall that lined the uterus. Overworked perineum during pregnancy and childbirth can play tricks on you. If you are breastfeeding, the first few weeks can also be synonymous of leaking milk, depending on the woman more or less.
Psychologically, the arrival of a new family member is a upheaval. A 100% dependent baby asks for you attention 24 hours a day and sometimes it can be difficult. Sometimes the dip of your hormones level take you through all kinds of emotions. This is the # postpartum .

These details that make the difference

An underwear suitable for postpartum or breastfeeding must be ultra comfortable. We have chosen Tencel, an ecological, durable and ultra soft material. The ribbed knit adapts perfectly to fluctuations in the bust and follows your movements day and night. Once worn, it can be forgotten!
A wide rubber band
Because the body was greatly strained during childbirth (vaginal or cesarean section), we chose flexible and soft elastics. Made from recycled fibers, they provide very good support and prevent leaks without marking the skin.
A slightly shapely PANTIES
The high waist of the panties Bodyguard reassures thanks to its support and a shaping effect. As your center of gravity has just changed, the panties move up onto your stomach and in the back to ease your postpartum balance.

Adopting Bodyguard is a first step towards zero waste .
