It’s really no surprise your body is different after having a baby. You just spent 9+ months creating a HUMAN. Lets give ourselves a break, shall we? I’m 10 months postpartum and I’m feeling more and more like my pre baby self each and every day.
So here I am preparing to go back to work and I’m scrounging around in my closet to find something that fits my new [fabulously curvy] body! My body is just different now and it wouldn’t do it justice to try and make my old wardrobe work. Plus I’d look like I was stuffed into a sausage casing!
I was cruising the mall after christmas searching for good sales on blouses and work dresses and I stumbled into the H&M maternity section and was AMAZED. Not only was I able to find flowy and comfortable tops and dresses, they were easy on the wallet. I found two wrap dresses that are perfect for nursing or pumping at work.
With my first pregnancy I found it hard to justify maternity clothing because I thought I’d be done with them right away after the baby popped out but the truth is, I wasn’t fitting my pre-pregnancy jeans after the baby, and nor would I have wanted to! A zipper and button on your jeans digging into your shrinking uterus doesn’t sound like a fun time to me. You will want flowy, loose, and comfy during and after your pregnancy, I guarantee it. Maternity clothes last a lot longer than you’d expect so one should never feel guilty getting a few staple pieces to get you through.
At first I was embarrassed that I was going to buy maternity clothing after having a baby but you know what? Maternity clothes fit the female body so perfectly, bump or not.
Here are a few of my favourite pieces from H&M right now:
