Let’s face it: From sleepless nights to crying babies, the initiation into motherhood can be a little less than glamorous.

Or at least that was the case before Dita Von Teese waved her stylish wand.

The iconic fashion star has partnered with Destination Maternity to launch a limited edition capsule collection, Von Follies by Dita Von Teese, that aims to embrace a new mom’s 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.”

Breastfeeding may just be the most unnatural natural thing a new mother can do.

While the rewards are ultimately great, it’s far from easy in the beginning. There’s a steep learning curve with plenty of stumbling blocks along the way, and your little partner in the journey is pretty darn demanding.

And for those who return to work outside the home and want to continue nursing, there’s a whole new set of complicating factors.

Luckily, there are plenty of products out there to help moms along. Is it possible to breastfeed without such accessories? Of course.

But adding a few key pieces to your arsenal only makes things easier. And what new mom doesn’t like easy?

We Tried It: Ameda Purely Yours Ultra Double Electric Breast Pump

Ameda Purely Yours Ultra Double Electric Breast Pump Review Courtesy Ameda

Who tried it: Julia Wang, Features Director

Why she did it: As any mom who plans to continue breastfeeding after returning to work knows, your breast pump becomes your best friend. It’s the one piece of equipment you turn to to continue providing nourishment for your little one when you can’t be there in person to nurse. Plus, it has to be discreet and can’t let you down — all of which amounts to a lot of pressure to find “The Pump That Will Deliver.”

I started using the Ameda Purely Yours Ultra after a week of trying to express milk — and failing miserably — with another double electric pump. Already frazzled that I wasn’t able to properly express milk for several days, my Ameda arrived in the mail. Hallelujah?
