So, you just birthed a baby. Congrats! You’re pretty much guaranteed to be dealing with a ton of shifts right now — in your schedule, your emotions and definitely your body. Maybe you’re dealing with breastfeeding or vulva stitches or a C-section scar or postpartum depression or all of the above (hopefully not all of the above at once).
But there’s no need to feel uncomfortable or less confident in your lingerie just because your body looks — and feels — different than it did pre-baby. It should be different! After all, it’s just accomplished a feat half the population can only dream of: giving birth to new life. You and your body are beautiful, and your underwear can express that — without going all itchy-thong on you. Try these six pieces of sexy and comfortable lingerie perfect for new moms. These beauties will boost your confidence and feel cozy without sacrificing style. We’re pretty sure your partner will be into them too.
The perfect fit
Every new mom deserves a better bra — you know, one that actually conforms to your (new, beautiful, ever-changing) shape and offers comfort for sensitive nursing breasts. Get it in black for prime sexiness plus functionality.
