All the comfort and style of your ordinary underclothes
When shopping for maternity lingerie, comfortable doesn’t have to translate to “granny panties.” From soft cotton briefs and thongs to sexy yet practical convertible bras, the wide selection of maternity lingerie available is sure to please any new mom - not to mention new dads too!
Cotton is a soft and breathable fabric ideal for maternity underwear. Cotton maternity underwear comes in a variety of styles from boy shorts to briefs to thongs. Some underwear sits under the bump, while others have extra fabric in the front that stretches as your belly expands.
Maternity underwear comes in a multitude of colors and patterns as well, to achieve individual style and a sexy look. Different fabrics aren’t out of the question either - lacy thongs, silk panties and satin slips all provide comfortable alternatives to basic cotton while flattering your new curves.
Maternity bras come with the same array of options for moms-to-be. While still providing adequate support and comfort, maternity bras also come in sexy styles that enhance your expectant-mommy cleavage. Many have detachable cup flaps so that they can be worn through pregnancy into the breast-feeding stage.
Frilly bras and mesh panties in more generous cuts are great options for sexy maternity lingerie on their own, or kick up the intensity with specialty maternity stockings and garters. With a new baby on the way, you and daddy will want to take advantage of the alone time you have left, and maternity lingerie can help you spice up your quality couple time.

Finding the perfect bra is difficult at any point in life. During pregnancy, finding a comfortable, properly-fitting maternity bra is vital to a happy pregnancy.

Maternity bras come in cozy fabric with adjustable straps and back hooks so you can wear it all through your pregnancy.
Many maternity bras don’t come with underwire, as it can constrain with changing breast sizes and can also cause problems such as clogged milk ducts. However, some now come with plastic or bamboo support which is more flexible. And thankfully, maternity bras come in a variety of sexy styles so you can still look your best. They also come in many sizes, from petite to plus size maternity bras. To find out your size, measure under your bust line and add three inches if over 33 inches and five if under 33 inches. Then measure the bust at the largest point. Subtract your bust line measurement (plus the additional inches) from your bust measurement.
