Dita Von Teese launches ‘sexiest maternity bra of all time’

The former Mrs Marilyn Manson has created a line of 'sexy' lingerie for new mums. Would you buy?


Burlesque star Dita Von Teese is well known for working her sexy image to the max, and it’s helped her to become one of the world’s best-known lingerie designers.


And now the 41-year-old, who doesn’t have any children of her own, has gone and brought the sexy to a capsule collection (pictured above, posed by a model) that’s aimed specifically at new, breastfeeding mothers.

And we’re not sure quite what to make of it! On the one hand, it’s great to see some lovely lingerie for a post-birth body; on the other, how many of us in the first few weeks of motherhood can really face much more on the underwear front than big pants and a comfy bra?

Dita’s new maternity range, part of her Von Follies underwear line, consists of 5 lacy nursing bras and 3 pairs of embellished control pants at around £30 a pop. The nursing bras are available in cup sizes B to F and each cup can be unhooked for easy breastfeeding. Dita’s glamorous lacy ‘shaper’ underpants feature control panels for new-mum jelly-belly flattening.

“Elegant underpinnings are a simple way to create everyday moments of luxury and beauty,” Dita says in a publicity statement. “Why wouldn’t a new mother enjoy beautiful lingerie, too?

“The collection I created with Destination Maternity is designed to capture the spirit of retro glamour, while inspiring confidence and meeting the practical requirements and everyday needs of a new mother.”

What do you think of Dita’s latest lingerie venture? Must-buy or impractical? Were you bothered about looking sexy just after you’d had a baby? Did you care about your knicker choices while you were nursing? Do please let us know in the comments below..
