How To Choose Sexy Maternity Lingerie

How To Choose Sexy Maternity Lingerie

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!

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.
