Finding sexy maternity lingerie isn’t always easy, especially as your shape changes. The good news is there are some seriously hot underwear options that will help you still feel sexy whatever size or shape your bump.


There are stretchy, unlined bralettes which offer comfort while still being lacy and feminine. Flexi-wired bras may offer a little more support and shape for those who prefer something more structured. Many maternity bras are also designed to see you past pregnancy and into nursing, with fold-down cups and discreet, easy to use fastenings.

In our round up of some of the best maternity lingerie, we have included all of the above as well as flowing nighties, bra and brief coordinate sets and more.

We have also ensured there are a range of cup and back sizes in our selection, with some designs offer additional back fastening positions so that bras can be easily adjusted as your shape changes throughout pregnancy and after birth.

Plus, if you are looking for more fashion and styling ideas, we’ve also rounded up some of the best maternity winter coats, best maternity jeans and best changing bags.

Silk road night gown
