Dita Von Teese's Maternity Collection Is As Sexy As It Is Smart

dita von teeseMost new moms resign themselves to the fact that the weeks and maybe even months after giving birth are not going to be among the most stylish they've ever had. Or the sexiest. But Dita Von Teese is on a mission to change that way of thinking once and for all. The fashion star has paired up with Destination Maternity to launch a limited edition "capsule" maternity collection called Von Follies by Dita Von Teese.

Dita's motivation for the line: “Elegant underpinnings are a simple way to create everyday moments of luxury and beauty, and why wouldn’t a new mother enjoy beautiful lingerie, too?” Right on! But elegance and beauty isn't all the undies are supposed to offer mamas!


Each piece is designed with new moms in mind, so there are nursing bras that come with clip-down tabs and detachable cups for added comfort, and panties also sport discreet control panel "shapers" to give your tummy a bit of bonus support. All of that undergarment lingo may call to mind Bridget Jones' impossibly large granny panties, but these are anything but! Designed in black and blue lace and delicate little white bows, they're really gorgeous.

Love this idea, not only because the lingerie is lovely, but because it was made with a truly lovely sentiment in mind. That new moms shouldn't have to feel frumpy or as if their only options for underwear are basic white and boring at best. That sexy isn't something women stop being once they've given birth. Geeze, if anything, giving birth should make you sexier! And this maternity line definitely embodies that.

Something tells me this functional and retro-glam line could start a trend. Well, here's hoping!
