On the outside, pregnancy clothes put on an innocent face (tunics, drawstrings, baby doll dresses). But below the surface hides the torture known as maternity underwear.
Unless, of course, it’s Amon Maternity lingerie.
Designed by a former fashion model, the collection is made of a seamless, soft microfiber that hugs and lifts (without the bondage effect). Choose from a belly band that provides tummy and back support, skivvies with extra-wide leg openings for comfort and easy movement, or briefs that cover your whole stomach.
The effect is a smooth, slimmer silhouette.
Whipping you right into a shape.
