Raise your hand if you are like me and either didn’t fit into anything after coming home from the hospital or looked horrible in everything.
I am a really firm believer that when you get ready and put in the effort (no matter how small), you feel good. There is nothing I wanted more (other than the health of my newborn) than to get some normalcy back into my life after his birth. All of a sudden I was living in a body I didn’t recognize and what helped with accepting that was finding cloths that felt like something I would normally wear.
I made the mistake of going shopping after just one month of giving birth. It was a BIG MISTAKE! My hips were still out and I didn’t fit into any jeans like I had hoped. That can really do something to your self esteem, so take it from me and avoid that! Instead wear a skirt. Skirts are a lot more forgiving, especially if you find the ones that have some stretch to them. Skirts are awesome because (unlike dresses) you don’t have to have a certain kind of style. That’s of course if you are nursing or trying to nurse, like I was. Here are some of my favorites:
It wouldn’t be a classic Taylor fashion post if I didn’t rave about how much I adore wearing dresses! Dresses are amazing because they look good on every single body. And for me, they helped hide the pregnant not pregnant stomach that I still had. Dresses are a little bit more tricky when it comes to breastfeeding so you have to find “nursing friendly” ones, which is a little harder than you might think. Here are some amazing nursing friendly dresses:
Shirts are one of those articles of clothing that can do no wrong. Any shirt can work for nursing, which is a BIG bonusss! I do recommend getting one or two new shirts because you just gave birth and you deserve it! Here are some cute ones that I got recently that I am loving!
