The new, limited-edition doll - officially called "Lingerie Barbie" - comes complete with sexy black or pink garters, silk stockings, stiletto heels and other saucy accessories.

And how much does Lingerie Barbie go for? Her price is a, ahem, very reasonable $45 - less than a pair of panties and garters at your local sex shop.

CNN -- Barbie's pregnant pal pulled from shelves

The pregnant version of Midge, which pops out a curled-up baby when her belly, attached by a magnet, is opened -- has been pulled from Wal-Mart shelves across the country following complaints from customers, a company spokeswoman said Tuesday.

She said the retailer would no longer sell the "Happy Family" set, which included pregnant Midge, her husband and her 3-year-old son.

The pregnant Midge wears a wedding ring and comes with doll-sized crib, cradle, changing table, baby toys and a baby monitor. The husband and son are sold separately.

Mattel posted an article on its Barbie Web site by University of Southern California psychology professor Jo Ann Farver praising the doll as a "wonderful prop," particularly for families expecting a new sibling.
