From the first ultrasound to the baby shower, being pregnant is one of the most amazing—and life-changing—seasons of anyone’s life. And while it’s exciting to feel the little kicks and register for baby gifts, it’s not all stroller shopping, and maternity photo shoots. In fact, between swollen ankles, bouts of acne, and new stretch marks, pregnancy can feel majorly unsexy. That doesn’t have to be the case, though. Enter: maternity lingerie.
As the name suggests, maternity lingerie includes sexy bras, panties, slips, nightgowns, and robes—you name it—all with the considerations of pregnancy incorporated into the designs. These pretty unmentionables are made to be bump- and nursing-friendly to grow with your evolving body. Like standard lingerie, maternity lingerie comes in various styles to suit everyone’s taste. While some you can wear under your clothes, others are meant to be put on for intimate evenings.
The best part about maternity lingerie is that just wearing it around the house can boost your confidence. When you’re spending months in sweatpants and compression socks, slipping on something slinky and sexy feels utterly decadent. And after all you’ve done to bring a new life into this world, you deserve to feel pretty and pampered!
So whether you’re looking for cute underwear, need a special slip for an anniversary, or simply want to get out of your usual loungewear, read on for 13 of the best maternity lingerie options that’ll instantly take you from “mom” to MILF.

Unleash your wild side with Cosabella’s Never Say Never leopard set. The wireless nursing bralette is ultrasoft and features clip-on/clip-off straps for easy opening and a flattering sweetheart neckline that’s perfect for wearing under your clothes or heading to the bedroom. Sold separately, the matching low-rise boyshorts sit below the bump and provide just the right amount of cheekiness for any fierce momma-to-be.
Coming in sizes S-XXL, the Dream nightie from Hotmilk is a pregnancy and new mom favorite with its A-line silhouette, stretchy fabric, and graphic lace trim detailing on the neckline. The full cup style is designed to fit sizes DD-I, while the regular size works well for A-D cups. Whichever option you choose, this nightgown will make you feel elegant and supported with a dash of utter sexiness.
We love a matching bra and panty set, but maternity options aren’t always as easy to find, nor are they as cute. That’s, of course, before AdoreMe’s Enora set came into the picture. The enchanting, lace-detailed design boasts a nursing bra with convenient drop-down clips, soft cups, and a matching bikini panty that sits just below the bump. This stylish set comes in black and neutral and checks off all the boxes from comfortable to practical to adorable.
If your definition of sexy is a little more understated, Kindred Bravely’s Nora nightgown nails the laid-back-yet-sultry aesthetic. The waffle knit fabric hugs all the right places, and the v-neck button front can be undone for nursing…or other naughty activities. Whether you select the style in blue or gray-mauve, the girl-next-door style pairs perfectly with some knee socks and a night of romance.
Flirty and feminine, Belabumbum’s Elle nightie is as comfortable as it is charming. Between the lush lilac hue, the soft-as-can-be Pima modal fabric, and the eye-catching ruffle neckline, it’s easy to see why moms-to-be flock to this pretty piece. While the pull-aside cups and bump-accommodating pleating work well post-pregnancy, the design can easily be incorporated into your nighttime wardrobe long after the baby makes their arrival.
Lean into your girly side with this lovely light blue lace set from Seraphine. The playful pairing features a non-wired nursing bra with drop cup access, extra back settings, and a beautiful bow detail that flatters and fits your changing body. Matching bottoms—which both come in right at mid-bump and over-the-bump options—showcase a scalloped lace waistband that adds some flair without compromising the fit.
Turn up the heat with this luscious lace bodysuit from TANGNADE. The halter design not only holds up the girls and elongates the torso, but the tie feature makes it easy to undo when it comes time to nurse. As for the rest of the suit, sheer stretch lace hugs your bump and gives enough booty coverage so you feel sultry but not too bare.
Tiers of fluffy, ruffled tulle take center stage in Chic Bump Club’s Blossom robe. With layers of light-as-air fabric, moms-to-be love this fashion-forward robe for a romantic night-in and maternity shoots. No matter which of the six hues you select the garment, the sheer fabric and an oversized ribbon tie give an undeniable air of luxury and sensuality.
Coming in pink, red, green, and black, Kindred Bravely’s Lucielle maternity gown marries sweet and sexy aesthetics to create a look that just begs to be complimented. A flattering empire waist means plenty of room for a growing bump or postpartum belly, and the clip-down cups make nursing or pumping a breeze. For an extra touch of seduction, the bodice features a lace overlay that extends to the cleavage-enhancing racerback.
A slinky black set is a lingerie drawer staple, and being pregnant doesn’t mean you have to forego the sexy basics. Seraphine’s black lace maternity bra and panty set feel sophisticated and seductive, all while boasting the pregnancy-friendly elements you crave. The non-padded bra has an underwire for support and nursing clips for easy feeding, while the matching over-bump briefs show plenty of skin through the sheer luxe lace.
Don’t let the “babydoll” title fool you; this tantalizing chemise from Avidlove is as sultry as they come. The sweetheart lace bodice, oversized satin bow, and fly-away front leave room to frame your growing belly, but the semi-sheer fabric along the body provide enough coverage to feel flirty instead of exposed. We especially love that this lingerie comes in 25+ color options to fit any preference, holiday, or mood you feel like channeling.
Everyone needs a go-to bra that instantly gives a boost, and for pregnant or nursing mothers, Natori’s Feathers bra is an outstanding choice. While the design features clasps for feeding, it is so streamlined that it doesn’t even look like it’s made for maternity. Lace trim dances along the plunging neckline and adjustable back, and the soft cotton fabric soothes chafed skin, making the design feel as good as it looks.
Long sleeves, woven netting, and all-over crystals come together to create a shimmering sheer bodysuit that is made to drop jaws. The delicate design conforms to the body and highlights your new figure, while the rhinestone details capture the light from every angle. Whether you wear this stunner for a sexy night in or a special maternity photo shoot, this is one piece of maternity lingerie you—and whoever is lucky enough to see you wear it—will remember for years to come.
While you might not always feel your sexiest when pregnant, maternity lingerie is precisely what you need for a boost of well-deserved confidence. No matter what you wear or what designs you gravitate toward, as long as the styles make you feel as amazing as you are, we guarantee they’ll give off major “come to momma” vibes.
