Earlier today TheFrisky.com asked, “Maternity Shapewear: Wrong or Just?” As a woman who’s been pregnant I can say with confidence that there is absolutely nothing wrong with maternity shapewear. Take away a pregnant woman’s maternity shapewear? Now that is wrong.
Unlike regular shapewear maternity shapewear isn’t intended to flatten your stomach. Rather, it offers support for a bulging belly, which any woman who’s ever carried twenty pounds in her stomach knows is really helpful.
But that’s not all maternity shapewear does. You see, when you’re pregnant, your stomach isn’t the only thing that gets bigger. For lots of women, being pregnant means a bigger butt, bigger hips, bigger legs, bigger everything in some cases. So if there is something out there that 1. supports your baby bump and 2. makes your butt and thighs look even a little like they did before you got pregnant, how could that possibly be wrong?
So moms-to-be, do not feel bad about wearing your maternity shapewear and non-pregnant people do not look at them in disgust or judgment. You should actually be thankful for maternity shapewear because imagine all the jiggly butts and thighs it’s sparing you from witnessing.
Here are three maternity shapers every mom-to-be should own:
Mama Spanx Pantyhose ($28)
Blanqi Shaping Tank ($68)
