How To Choose Sexy Maternity Lingerie

Being pregnant shouldn't mean you have to sacrifice on sex appeal or comfort.

The key to shopping for sexy maternity lingerie is to choose something loose and flattering that won't start to feel uncomfortably tight as your baby grows. Comfort is important, so we recommend staying away from underwired or boned lingerie - save the lace-up corsets until after you give birth!

It's a good idea to choose lingerie with adjustable straps and fastenings that allow you to change the fit as your baby grows.

One size lingerie tends to have more of a stretch than regular sized clothing, meaning it expands for a comfortable fit as your bump grows. We've chosen some key pieces below that look great before, during and after pregnancy, helping you feel satisfied and sexy for the entire nine months.

On top

  1. A soft cup bra is a pregnancy essential, as underwires can be painful for swollen breasts. Choose a soft bra that shows off your nipples beneath a layer of sheer mesh for sexiness and support without discomfort.
  2. Loose-fitting, comfortable and adjustable, a flyaway lace babydoll skims, flatters and reveals a glimpse of your bump. It's the perfect way to keep feeling sexy throughout your pregnancy journey.

On the bottom

  1. Try stretchy lace knickers with a low waistband and a full gusset. Black lace is a winner for expectant mothers.
  2. A satin robe is a truly versatile piece of bedroom attire that you'll wear long after your pregnancy is over. Fully adjustable to suit your changing body, satin will smoothly caress your bump and below while making you feel great.

For your whole body

  1. Do you feel like your breasts need additional support during sex? A sheer babydoll with halterneck ties will gently lift and support as it flares out over your bump.
  2. If you're looking for lingerie to flaunt your rounded bump, an all-in-one bodystocking is it! Free from uncomfortable seams or waistbands, this stretchy number fits like a glove throughout your whole pregnancy.
