Sexy Maternity Lingerie Does Exist, And These 13 Options That Will Get You in the Mood


When it comes to maternity underwear, put away your preconceived notions of what you “should” be wearing. It’s time to trade the granny panties and full-coverage bras for some sexy maternity lingerie. Symptoms like morning sickness and fatigue may not scream sexy, but pregnancy can bring about a surge in your sex drive because of hormonal changes and increased sensitivity, making your hornier than ever. And what better way to liven up to your newfound libido than with a lacy bra and panty combo? 

When you’re choosing the right maternity lingerie, it’s important to keep comfort in mind. Some guidelines are the same whether you’re expecting or not. You’ll want to avoid picking out the wrong bra in any situation, so if your breasts have grown during pregnancy, you may have to upgrade the size and look for a little extra support (look for wider straps will provide plenty of support.) When it comes to underwear, opt for a low-cut pair that rides underneath your growing belly.

The bottom line? Embrace the feelings of femininity and sexuality that come with your pregnancy. Flaunt your new curves in sexy lingerie, before post-labor soreness and sleepless nights put the definitive kibosh on that increased sex drive.
