Silverguard Maternity Underwear
The makers of Silverguard created a maternity panty and belt that provide superior comfort and support for expecting mothers, while offering exceptional protection for baby.
A precious event such as pregnancy deserves superior underwear, and the need to feel calm, relaxed and comfortable is very important for both baby and mom.
The patented X-Static pure silver fibre woven into the fabric of these garments is what makes them really special: Silverguard fabrics have been shown to offer a high level of protection from electro-magnetic radiation emitted by cell-phones, microwave ovens, TV monitors and many other devices encountered every day. Electro-magnetic radiation is the reason why doctors discourage unnecessary X-rays of pregnant women.
Just as importantly, silver is also well known for its anti-bacterial properties, hence protecting baby and mom from harmful infections, such as the candida bacteria that many pregnant woman suffer from.
Another beneficial characteristic of Silverguard fabric powered by X-Static is thermal regulation.
This means that the underwear feels noticeably cooler in summer and warmer in winter, adding extra comfort for mom throughout pregnancy. And because the patented silver fibre is woven into the product, all these properties remain unchanged over time, even after repeated washes.
Furthermore, as a result of the wound-care and anti-bacterial properties of silver, the Silverguard maternity belt is also recommended to promote healing as well as compression after C-section surgery.
Numerous sources refer to the antibacterial properties of silver, mentioning that Hippocrates, “the father of medicine,” knew of its healing and anti-disease properties. In World War I, before the advent of antibiotics, silver was an important weapon against infection and disease caused by wounds on the battlefield. According to professor AB Lansdowne, of the UK’s Imperial College, Faculty of Medicine, silver has an intriguing history as an antibiotic in human healthcare. It is used in water purification, wound care, bone prostheses, orthopaedic surgery, cardiac devices, catheters and surgical devices.
Silverguard in South Africa is a licensee of Noble Biomaterials, the American corporation that patented X-Static silver fibre. This fibre has been researched and tested by leading institutions around the world. It is registered as a germicide and is widely accepted in the medical community. It is 100% safe, natural, non-toxic and contains no chemicals.
The X-Static thread contains a layer of pure silver permanently bonded to the surface of a textile fibre. The process is such that the fibre, with its silver layer, retains traditional textile and tactile characteristics. It can be used in knits and woven- or non-woven fabrics, as either a filament or spun yarn, while providing all the benefits known to be inherent to pure silver – only in a new format as a textile fibre.
In addition to the maternity belt and panty, Silverguard South Africa has also partnered with the well known Snuggletime brand to bring a range of baby products to Baby City retail outlets nationwide. The range includes cot mattresses, fitted sheets, infant pillows, pillow cases and wedged pillows…
Similarly to all Silverguard fabrics, the Snuggletime Silverguard range ensures a bacteria-free environment for baby. This translates to anti-dust-mite and anti-allergy protection while also providing the extra benefits of thermal regulation.
The Silverguard maternity panty and belt are available in a wide range of sizes and can be found in selected pharmacies and stores specialising in maternity-wear. Products are also available directly from Silverguard.
Recommended retail price for the Maternity Belt is R358.74 and R447.43 for the Panty – both prices inclusive of VAT.
