The last few weeks I’ve learned first hand just how difficult postpartum dressing can be. Pre-pregnancy clothes are too small, pregnancy clothes are too big and the last thing you want your clothing to focus on is your belly.
Through this transitional period my main solution has been to buy waist-forgiving dresses one size bigger than my pre-pregnancy size so that I can just belt them when I get back to my normal size. I’ve also been wearing skinny jeans with stretch and more loose fitting woven shirts, which always look classic together. Something that incorporates both of these things is a shirt dress. I like the simplicity of this Levi’s one, which can be easily dressed up or down.
