Fashion and burlesque star, Dita Von Teese, 41, has launched a maternity lingerie line with Destination Maternity! The line is called Von Follies by Dita Von Teese – and is aimed at new mom’s who are looking to regain their sexy side.
“Elegant underpinnings are a simple way to create everyday moments of luxury and beauty, and why wouldn’t a new mother enjoy beautiful lingerie, too?” Von Teese says.
“The collection I created with Destination Maternity is designed to capture the spirit of retro glamour, while inspiring confidence and meeting the practical requirements and everyday needs of a new mother.”
Von Teese even models the line – which features bras with detachable cups for the nursing mothers, and control panels for support.
I actually think this is brilliant. When I had young children, all the nursing bras were so heinous and matronly- you’re already recovering from childbirth- trying to find your body again… I definitely didn’t feel my hottest. I say anything to make a new mom feel as sexy and strong as she truly is – is a great boon for her.
As for Von Teese- she is slowly easing away from the dancing and modeling. Back in 2012 she was quoted as saying she had no interest in being “60 years old in a G-string.” This last year, she hired models to join her for the first time in advertising her lingerie lines.
“I thought it would be nice to step back a bit and be able to do more of the creative part other than being a model, and also be able to show different kinds of women and different kinds of beauty in lingerie.”
She’s certainly a beautiful woman who has always encouraged women to embrace their inner 1950’s pin-up star!
