A reader informs us that body-shaper manufacturer Spanx has a line of figure "enhancers" for pregnant women. The Mama Full Length, the Power Mama and the Mama Footless (is Barefoot Mama next?) offer lower back support, underbelly support and "shape the rear and thighs as they expand along with your tummy." Because, you know, being pregnant is all about fooling the people around you into thinking that you're not! [Spanx]
No, wait! These were the BEST things when I was pregnant! I wore them once to avoid VPL on a dress I was wearing to a party and I got hooked. When you have that 15 pound beach ball up front you feel so much better when something is holding it up, so to speak. This is why they sell maternity belts, etc. I wore them my entire 3rd trimester, and trust me at that point I didn't care how my thighs looked.
