Practical, Pretty Maternity Lingerie
Here are our top picks from Cake Lingerie. We'd make a crack about both your baby and hubby licking their lips...but that seems a bit in poor taste!
Rocky Road Nursing Chemise
This Rocky Road Nursing Chemise nightgown is available in both a mid-length and a knee-length cut. You'd think that something so cute and pre-maternity looking couldn't be comfortable, but the fabric is incredibly soft and fits so comfortably over your tummy and breasts. Plus, the hooks are easy to manipulate one-handed, making for easy middle-of-the-night feedings. I've got my eye on the knee-length one for recovery in the hospital next time -- just sayin'!
Shortbread bra and knickers
Once you’re ready to venture away from the athletic bra and attempt something a bit more "normal," you've got to check out the Shortbread collection. The vibrant plaid print is eye-catching, the fabric is super stretchy and comfortable, and the lace embellishments remind us of days gone by when our breasts were more than a one-stop-shop for your little one. Your ducts will applaud the lack of underwire, too. Even under a two-day-old tee, these babies are going to put some swagger in your step!
Grey cotton candy
One of Cake’s best sellers and rightly so, the Luxury Seamless Nursing Bra is a great buy because it comfortably grows along with your bustline, so you’ll get plenty of wear out of it. As a mum who swears by athletic bras while nursing for their sheer ease of use (and lack of sheerness!), I’m a big fan of this t-back bra designed to maximise life and support. The bra functions well during the early stages of pregnancy when you’re breasts begin to swell, and on through nursing if you so choose.
