How to Dress After Pregnancy

Three Methods:

Having a baby is an exciting time in a woman’s life. However, finding the right fashions for the post-pregnancy body may be a challenge. Everyone knows a woman’s body goes through extensive changes during pregnancy, but a woman should also be aware that the body changes after baby. From belly bulges to shoe size surprises, these changes can really hinder a new mom’s fashion sense. Be a fashionable mom by spicing up your post-pregnancy wardrobe.


Anticipating Your Post-Pregnancy Body Changes

  1. Give yourself some time.The body goes through a number of changes after giving birth. It takes weeks for the uterus to shrink back to its normal pre-baby size.Give your body, especially your abdomen, time to get back to normal before buying a whole new wardrobe.
  2. Prepare to go shoe shopping.A woman’s feet swell during pregnancy, but did you know that you might have permanently larger feet after giving birth? When you’re preparing for your new post-pregnancy wardrobe, do not assume that your shoe size has not changed. Measure your feet to find a cute pair of shoes that fit you perfectly.
  3. Take care of your breasts.Your breasts are going to be swollen and sore immediately after birth. They may even leak or sag during or after breastfeeding. Keep this in mind when shopping for tops or new bras.
  4. Embrace your new body.Examine yourself in a mirror - your overall shape may have changed!. You have just carried one (or more) living being in your body for 9 months and your body has gone through a number of changes. These changes may have completely altered the way your body looks. You may have gone from a pear shape to an apple. You will need to examine yourself to find out your new body shape.

Falling Back on What You Already Own

  1. Rock some cute maternity clothes.The body goes through a number of changes after giving birth. It takes weeks for the uterus to shrink back to its normal pre-baby size.To combat the no-longer-a-baby-bulge, you can rely on some cute maternity clothes to give you a cute look. Flowy tops, especially empire waists, will accentuate your curves but do not draw attention to unflattering bulges.
  2. Wear cardigans.Cardigans are a great staple in any woman’s wardrobe.Add them to your post-pregnancy repertoire to help hide the bulging belly. These chic sweaters may also help to hide sore and leaky breasts the first few weeks after pregnancy.

  4. Smooth yourself with some shapewear.Shapewear can be a great post-pregnancy wardrobe staple as it can smooth and tuck. Shapewear may be the perfect accessory to be able to fit into those pre-pregnancy jeans.

Shopping for New Clothes & Accessories

  2. Tuck into tunic sweaters.Tunic sweaters are comfortable as well as fashionable. Their wide necklines can be feminine and show off some skin. This draws attention away from your stomach and hips, which can also be hidden by the length of the sweater.
  3. Be comfortable in some stretchy basics.You want to be comfortable and fashionable. This may be hard to do if your body is still going through some uncomfortable changes. Sometimes, the right answer is to be the most comfortable and fashion will follow. Add some stretch to your wardrobe like some cute yoga pants.
  4. Wear drapey, not shapeless.Regardless of how you think you look after a pregnancy, you are exemplifying one of the greatest gifts that nature provides. Be proud of your body! One way you can do this is to ditch the shapeless clothes and instead wear drapey fabrics and dresses.
  5. Accessorize!You are now a busy mom. You may not have the time to spend picking out the perfect wardrobe. But, you can add some chic accessories to your comfortable outfit to spice up your look.
    • Pair a colorful scarf to a solid sweater.
    • Wear a wide belt on your flowy dress to define your waist and hide your midsection.
    • Wear sparkling earrings and bracelets to bring attention to your ears and hands rather than your belly.

    Belly fat is best reduced with abdomen strengthening exercises. Squats is a great way to lose belly fat, also strengthens your quadriceps and core abdomen muscles. Squat at least 20 times a day after walking for 30 minutes a day regularly. This should be done systematically for at least three months.
  • Question
    Can I be pregnant if I had sex once after giving birth 3 weeks ago?
    Top Answerer
    Technically - yes. But this seems so very unlikely as to be near impossible. During pregnancy, your menstrual cycle is interrupted; you neither menstruate nor ovulate. It starts up again after birth, and the first step is ovulation. That means the first cycle you won't know it has started until two weeks later when you menstruate. If you have sex in those two weeks, then yes, you could be pregnant. However, pregnancy and birth cause drastic changes in your body's hormonal works, and breastfeeding also inhibits ovulation, though to a certain degree only. It is extremely unlikely, but if you think you may be pregnant, go see your doctor as soon as possible.

    Exercise and follow a healthy balanced diet. You can try sit-ups and walking for 30 minutes daily, but don't put too much pressure on yourself.

    How long does it take for the uterus to shrink after childbirth?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    The uterus itself will shrink to its normal size within an hour or two after giving birth. It will take longer for the skin and muscle tissue to return to its previous size, and depending on the person and many other factors it can be weeks or months for the rest of the body to recover. Regular exercise and skin care help a lot before, during, and after giving birth.
