Stop Press! There is such a thing as 'Maternity Lingerie'!

After a trip to to the hospital at the end of last week, I was told to rest over the weekend - never a bad thing really, pregnant or not! Eager to keep me busy, my other half went on a mission for the Sunday papers so I could immerse myself in all the latest celeb gossip whilst he entertained Mister A for the day.

I've not really been taking an interest in any fashion pages over the last few months. There's never usually anything in the magazines for those of us with expanding baby bumps, so I was pleasantly surprised when I came across a heavily pregnant Danielle Lloyd in the Sunday Mirror Magazine looking gorgeously glam in 'maternity lingerie'?! No, these words could surely never fall in the same sentence! All the maternity and nursing bras and pants that I come across are huge and frumpy!

I got on the net straight away to investigate this amazing lingerie brand known as Hot Milk and it seems it's been right under my nose all along. Pretty Pregnant are currently stocking a variety of Hot Milk pieces at 40% off!

I'm not quite ready to pose in a national magazine wearing this attire but I've decided to risk it in the bedroom even though I know I won't look like any of the girls in these shots!

I really like the RMF Camisole with matching briefs (above right). It's sold as "a delicate nursing camisole [with] double-lined lace cups and scalloped lace trim. The microfibre makes it stretchy and comfortable, and flexible too." Sounds very practical for such a super sexy piece!

Another Hot Milk item that caught my eye was the Her Enchanted Dream Nightie (left) - another microfibre nursing piece with lace trimmings. I really love the attention to detail - the one-handed maternity clips have little bow detail but still allow the least fuss possible for those early morning feeds. Sexy and practical - I can't go wrong!

I'll definitely be investing in some Hot Milk - Chris won't know what's hit him!

  1. Hot Milk is my favourite maternity underwear range. Even better when it's on sale at BrandAlley - which is sometimes is! I really want the pyjamas....
