Holly Madison Shows Pregnancy Doesn't Make You Frumpy

Holly MadisonTalk about pregnancy agreeing with someone. Former Playboy playmate and Hugh Hefner's ex, Holly Madison, looks flat-out stunning these days. Last night at the Miss Universe pageant in Las Vegas, she was simply glowing.

Her hair, the dress, the makeup -- all were perfection. I've honestly never seen her look better. Typically she's all boobs and way too cutesy with the pigtails and knee-high socks, but besides that unfortunate display of pajama pants in public awhile back, she's really been embracing her pregnant body in the best possible way.

She, however, doesn't see it that way, and says she's just not feeling sexy these days.

She recently told In Touch:

Feeling sexy is a real challenge for me because I have this basketball on my stomach. It’s weird! I’m just getting used to this whole new body. It can be very awkward.

She certainly doesn't look awkward, and I bet her boyfriend and baby daddy, Pasquale Rotella, agrees. I get that it's probably difficult for her, who has made a living off of her bod, to embrace such big changes, but for many women, they really do look better than ever while they're pregnant (we're not just saying it to make you feel good!), even if they don't feel it.

Those who can embrace it are even more fortunate. I have one friend who never once had worn a bikini in her adult life, but oh did she rock one when she was pregnant.

Bodies are riper, breasts are fuller, and that glow really isn't a myth for many women. Pregnancy can be uber sexy, and as Holly shows, there's no need to hide it under frumpy clothes.

Did you feel sexy while you were pregnant?

    It's easy to look good while pregnant when you don't have a real job. Let's see her work in the labor industry for 40 hours a week, and see how good she looks.

    Haha I have a slightly biased POV on this, hard for me to find her sexy now (although she's absolutely gorgeous).. bc I went to Vegas this past August, and saw Peepshow.   Now why in the name of all things great would you continue to have a BURLESQUE show when you're pregnant?  She announced her pregnancy a month or so after my vacation... but even from my second deck seat, I could tell there was a lil bun in the oven.  I'm not bisexual, but sexy it definitely wasn't..... lol
