The Best Postpartum Clothes I Can’t Live Without Right Now

5 comments

I knew it might take some time to figure out the best postpartum clothes I like for my own body. And luckily, I can now tell you guys my favorites! I’m sure you guys remember when I was writing about maternity clothes. Well now, it’s already been about two and a half months since I gave birth to baby Hazel! You could say I’ve had a longer recovery than I initially planned for, that’s for sure. I had no idea I’d need surgery a few weeks ago after giving birth, and that increased my recovery time even more. I’m going to explain all that, plus my birth story, later this month – so get excited! I’ve been working on a detailed post to lay it all out.

Anyways, childbirth, and surgery, and pumping breastmilk (or breastfeeding) all require you wear clothes that are comfortable and adaptable to all those situations. No, most women aren’t back in their “skinny” jeans a month later – hate to break it to ya! All our bodies are different and beautiful, and since we all carry babies differently, we all recover from carrying babies differently. But one common thread remains: it’s nice to be wearing something comfy when you don’t feel like you’re back to 100% yet!

So whether you’re about to have a baby of your own, shopping for a loved one, or, like me, still finding things to wear that are comfy in this recovering body, I’m hoping this post is helpful to you. Heck, these all work for parents who are adopting or having a baby through surrogacy, too, because you need comfy clothes to lay around in with your baby!

Today I’m sharing the things I’ve been wearing all the time in these post-childbirth days. And here’s a helpful tip; sometimes the BEST postpartum clothes are not actually designed for postpartum recovery! Sometimes your best friend is a really soft t-shirt!

It’s been getting HOT here in Orange County, so these shorts have been a lifesaver!  The same goes for this comfy V-Neck. If you have any fave postpartum, super-comfy pieces of your own, lay ’em on me!

    Heck, I want to lose weight but with an artificial right knee and an artificial left ankle it’s a real B—ch, especially when you eat right. I’m looking for a Concept ll Rowing Machine…good workout and takes the weight off (and tones you)..

    Hey Jasmine- don’t worry so much about the weight; it will come off. I had 4 kids and while they were little I didn’t have much of a weight problem. Just eat right, Take That sweet baby on walks & remember to breathe. You’re beautiful!

    Yes to everything you posted here! After my first, I went back to work 6 weeks later (as a high school teacher) and it was SO HARD to find things to wear! I found some curvy cut flared jeans from the GAP that were so perfect and made me feel cute. I really needed that.

    The interesting thing is how my body learned to be pregnant and recover after each child. My third (and last) pregnancy was with twins. Now my body is so different than it was before all my pregnancies, but I remind myself that each little change allowed my children to be here — a mark of loving honor on my mom-bod!
