Being pregnant shouldn't mean you have to sacrifice on sex appeal - however, we often get contacted by women who have trouble feeling sexy during pregnancy.
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!
