From sore nipples and stretch marks to painful incisions and pelvic floor dysfunction, mamas go through a lot.
Certainly, we love our babes—but getting used to our new bodies isn’t always easy, specially when most under-things out there are more practical than pretty. Enter luxe lingerie line Mayana Genevière, which wants women to celebrate their post-baby curves with gorgeous, lacey pieces, $80 and up, that are both comely and comfortable. The low-plunging Lorenna bra has narrow multi-way straps (a rarity in most nursing bras!), cotton-lined cups for sensitive nipples and clasp-free technology for one-handed access. There’s also a vintage-style control panty with breathable cotton panels for post c-section support, a sophisticated babydoll that allows for midnight feeds and bum-flattering waist corsets that help support your core. Made in Toronto, each piece is designed with changing bodies in mind and will take you from pregnancy to nursing and beyond.
Hey, if mom jeans can make a sexy comeback, so can our post-birth bods. —Marianne Wisenthal
