It’s official, my fourth trimester has begun. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes right away, so I rounded up what seems to be my new “postpartum uniform”. I decided that I would try out breast feeding, so having tops that are both loose and breast accessible are a must. Week by week I am getting back into some of my pre-pregnancy clothes, but figuring out this whole 4th trimester outfit thing, can certainly be a challenge. Here are some ideas that have been working for me….*image is clickable
1. High Rise Pant // These help to hold everything in place as your body starts to reshape. They feel SO good around a postpartum tummy and add 360 coverage when lifting your shirt to nurse.
2. Loose Tops // While at home I didn’t want to have to fuss around when feeding, so loose tops, henley or wrap tops have been easy to pull aside.
3. Cozy Wrap Layer // Lightweight wraps are perfect for snuggling up with baby and camouflaging the postpartum pooch. Draped cardigans are my new best friend and much easier for feedings then fussing with a pullover.
4. Nursing-friendly bra // I was a little skeptical about using these at first because I figured I would just wear a bralette, but these have been life-saving (and so much more supportive!). They are comfortable and again provide easy access. I also recommend getting nursing pads because the leakage situation is REAL :/
I have also rounded up some of my favorite nursing-friendly/post partum dresses and jumpsuits – maybe I will test one of these out for week 4! My favorite brand has to be Loyal Hana with their ingenious hidden zipper!
