Dita Von Teese is teaming up with Destination Maternity to create a new lingerie line for mothers. The Von Follies maternity collection includes nursing bras and postpartum panties, according to the Inquisitr.

The Daily Telegraph thinks this is a sign that Dita Von Teese is stripping burlesque out of her life in favour of lingerie. Which isn’t surprising following the announcement of her semi-retirement.

Some things, however, don’t change. Dita Von Teese has also argued that women are losing sight of sexiness in pursuit of thinness according to the Courier Mail.

See what all the fuss is about with curves to boot in this video of Dita Von Teese and the Bloomingdale’s collaboration:
