Pregnant women no longer feel the need to hide their bumps in baggy clothes. Maternity wear is finally cute! Mamas-to-be are embracing their beautiful bellies—in clingy dresses, prenatal photo shoots (with or without clothes), and even proudly posting bikini bumpies. But apparently, not everyone is happy about that.
New Jersey’s radio station 101.5 is polling listeners online to find out: “Are pregnant bellies unattractive?” I can’t believe that someone would even ask that question, but DJs Dennis and Judi did. Maybe it’s just because I’m hangry right now, but I’m super-offended for every woman who has ever been pregnant!
And the results of the poll are even more infuriating! While people are still happily voting on the topic, nearly 55 percent of people who have voted say, “Yes, baby bumps should be hidden.”
Really?! The majority of people think that baby bumps should be hidden? This is 2014, people! Personally, I’m with the 45 percent who voted, “No—they are beautiful and should be displayed.” Pregnancy—and a woman’s changing body—is something to be celebrated!
Pregnant? See how your belly will grow!

Fashion Week has long been synonymous with super-skinny models who are in major need of a hamburger—or any meal for that matter. So I was so psyched to see that You! Lingerie hired fierce, full-bodied pregnant women to show off their sweet and sexy line of skivvies at Lingerie Fashion Week in New York City.
The mamas-to-be worked the runway in You! Lingerie’s Spring/Summer 2014 line of maternity and nursing wear. As they strutted their stuff dressed in bright yellow, turquoise and purple bras (with discreet nursing clips) and panties, the expectant models wore nothing else but six-inch hot pink stilettos and the occasional thigh-high stocking. Talk about making a fashion statement!
Not only is You! Lingerie proving maternity underwear doesn’t have to be frumpy, the brand is also showing that pregnant women can still be babes in the boudoir (which of course we ladies already knew—but it’s nice to be reminded sometimes!). I love that the line filled with delicate bows and lace celebrates a pregnant woman’s curves and brings out all of those super-feminine feelings you have when you’re having a baby.
But even the most confident of women can have a maternity meltdown now and again, feeling supersized when you would much rather be funsized. So seeing these ladies in all of their pregnant glory is a nice reminder to embrace your new shape. You’re more than just a baby-making machine—you’re smokin’ hot! And don’t you forget it!
TELL US: Do you think wearing sexy lingerie is a waste while you’re pregnant, or does it make you feel sexy when you need an ego-boost?
