Actually Sexy Maternity Lingerie Looks To Heat Things Up On Valentine's Day

Originally Published: 

Just because your belly is now holding a bundle doesn't mean you can't be sexy this upcoming Valentine's Day — or any day for that matter. Yes, I know that's probably the last thing that appeals to you: wearing a tight, itchy, barely covering piece of clothing while your belly is about to pop. But there are so many clothing lines that offer sexy maternity lingerie options that will not only make you feel like a goddess, but are comfy as well. Oh, thank goodness!

Nighties are always a solid sexy choice, whether you're pregnant or not, and whether it's Valentine's Day or just any regular Wednesday. Or, try a sexy nursing bra with some booty shorts. Did I just say "sexy nursing bra"? Oh yes, I did. Trust me there are sexy nursing bras out there. You just need to know where to find them.

Your body has been through so many changes these past few months. Do something that's going to make you feel good. Yes, you're pregnant and you might not recognize yourself when you look in the mirror, but that doesn't mean you aren't a hot sexy mama. Embrace your new body! So, trade in those leggings and put on something that's going to show off all your sexy new curves. Oh, and thank goodness for overnight shipping.


A Little Lace

Just because you've got a lot going on up front doesn't mean you don't have something to show off in the rear, too. And there's just something about black lace that says sexy, no matter what.


Lady in Red

With a transparent mesh overlap skirt in fire engine red, this classic babydoll screams "Valentine's Day" (in a good way). Plus, the loose, easy fit means you won't feel constricted.


Sweet & Supportive

What looks like a slinky chemise is surprisingly functional. The microfiber bust is double lined for support, and the straps are adjustable so it can grow with you (but also super soft, so they don't dig into your shoulders).


A Nice Nightie

Known for its popularity with celeb moms-to-be, Hatch is also great at making basics seem like luxuries. Case in point: This soft maternity nightie that's as comfy as it is sultry.


Slinky Satin

Ideal for the early months of pregnancy when you can't stand anything tight around your belly and you can't figure out where waistbands are supposed to go, this silky nightgown is very Valentine's Day appropriate indeed.


Too Cute

Being pregnant doesn't necessarily mean that cute, flirty lingerie like bralettes are out of the question. This one comes with removable pads and adjustable shoulder straps, and the wide band won't dig into your back.


Soft & Swingy

This romantic chemise is thoughtfully designed: The straps stay in place because of the racer back, it's a little longer in front (to accommodate pregnant bellies), and it can be used for nursing, too. Plus, it's super pretty and soft.



Another option that can transition from pregnancy to the breastfeeding phase, this classic slip could almost work as a little black dress. (Almost. Probably don't wear it outside, though.)
