Tips for Fourth Trimester Fashions

If you follow regularly, you know that I recently gave birth to my son.  I have been losing approximately one pound per week for the past month. Some weeks are better than others. I am 8 pounds away from my target weight. However, I am not really stressed about being overweight right now since I know that the weight will eventually come off with time and healthy habits.  In the meantime, I definitely have to adjust my style until I am closer to my pre-pregnancy weight. In my opinion, it's important to have at least a few favorite pieces of clothing to wear after giving birth. Thanks to zulily, I found some amazing tips to help survive the "fourth trimester" and feel fashionable!

Here are some of my favorite tips:
The zulily team of experts share fourth trimester fashion tips below and the full list can be found here:
  • Streamlined silhouettes - It's common to want to hide behind bulky clothing when a body is changing after a baby is born. Avoid chunky fabric, big prints, and super shiny styles as these can give the illusion of a bulkier frame. Instead, stick to solids and dark colored tops and dresses. 
  • Functional nursing apparel (if needed) – Make sure to select products that are easy to care for and comfortable to wear. For moms who chose to nurse or pump, aim to have a few staple bra options during this time, as your bust size will most-likely fluctuate. Surplice tops, nursing tanks and tops are great options since these garments make it easier to breastfeed in public or pump while you're back in your busy routine. 
  • Shapewear – Consider investing in compression garments such as tank tops, seamless camisoles and leggings since these streamline your figure. For example, the Belly Bandit (a top selling item on zulily) helps support a post-baby belly, waist and hips, allowing moms to feel confident as they work at their own pace to get back into their pre-pregnancy clothing. 
  • Adjustable apparel styles – Look for styles such as wrap dresses and tops, which are closet essentials, and flattering for most body types. As a new mom's body continues to change, these garments can easily be adjusted.
We hope that these tips help you with your fourth trimester style!   Please remember that the fourth trimester may feel like a stressful time as you are recovering from giving birth and taking on a lot of responsibility with a newborn, but you'll eventually get into your groove.    Hopefully, you are able to enjoy this special time in life and feel beautiful after your body did an amazing job of creating life!
