Sexy Lingerie for Mamas-to-Be

We think you should enjoy every second -- or at least almost every second -- of your pregnancy, you gorgeous thing. Here, the products that make you and your bump look and feel your best.

Before you got pregnant, you rocked gorgeous lingerie (that might have had something to do with how you got into this state in the first place). But now that you're in the land of maternity wear, the pretty underthings selection is almost zilch. Agent Provocateur, the lingerie house that wrote the book on seduction, has introduced a maternity collection.

Trendy Maternity Clothes

During those nine months of pregnancy, you need the wardrobe basics, like black pants or a great pair of jeans. But you also need a few inexpensive, of-the-moment pieces that make you forget, at least for a minute, that you're dressing around a basketball. Enter Topshop's Maternity Collection.

Convert Your Shirts into Maternity Wear

You sailed through the first trimester barely buying anything maternity. Now, make your shirts stretch into the second trimester with Blush Accessories' Topless Undershirt. It's a tube top that begins where your bra ends and stretches over the belly. Continue to wear those cute tees and cropped sweaters well into your pregnancy -- it doesn't matter if they creep up because the undershirt's got the belly covered.

Ninetimesthree Maternity Wardrobe Kit

Now that you're pregnant, you need super-sleek maternity options for your go-anywhere all-black style -- stat. Leave it to effortlessly chic Europeans to come up with a solution: Neunmaldrei, which means "Nine-times-three" in German, offers three interchangeable pieces that transition from three to nine months just as easily as they do from work to weekend.

Isabella Oliver's 2-for-1 Maternity Line

It's hard to justify major bucks for clothing you'll wear for less than nine months, so how about a 2-for-1 deal? High-style maternity-wear company Isabella Oliver now offers the Duo collection, a line of stylishly reversible dresses, tops, and tanks. Made of light jersey, many with their signature (and so-flattering) ruching and wrapping, you get twice the wear out of these stretchy pieces.
