A woman in the midst of pregnancy is a beautiful thing. But there was a time, in the fairly recent past, where women didn’t—and sometimes couldn’t, thanks to what was in stores—embrace their growing bodies, and instead covered them up with muumuus and bulky, tent-like ensembles. Thankfully, times have changed. In recent years there have been many companies creating fashionable, attractive, and last but not least, sexy clothing for moms-to-be. That being said, of course there would be a market for super hot maternity wear for expecting women.
Lingerie Fashion Week held its spring/summer 2014 event in New York recently, and although there were plenty of eye-catching runway shows of scantily clad women, the one that caught the media’s attention most was the You! Lingerie Nursing + Maternity show. The company used quite pregnant models on the runway who strutted their bare baby bumps with power, grace, and confidence. Yes, times have indeed changed.
Check out images from the fashion show right here! Would you ever wear your undies in public while pregnant?
