Pregnancy doesn't mean the end of style, and hosiery manufacturers offer products to accommodate your growing belly while still being fashionable. Maternity pantyhose has a panel that expands with you, usually made of soft stretchy lace or fabric that provides some underbelly support. Some styles offer light leg support as well. A cotton crotch allows you to go without panties for a smoother silhouette. Maternity pantyhose will also have a non-binding soft waistband for your comfort. Wear them under skirts and dresses and even under pants for additional support.
