But most new moms also express worry about their appearance after birth. You will still be feeling the after pains of birth and the gradual changes in your body, and you might feel hopeless trying to look for the perfect outfit that can make you comfortable while still looking cute. But no worries, you can still look great by choosing the right clothes. Here are just some tips in looking for a great outfit for all you, new moms out there.

No Tight or Fitting Clothes

You’ve just went through three trimesters of pregnancy and now you’re on the fourth one. Sure, you’ve just given birth and said goodbye to the big bump on your tummy. However, it’s also wise to remember that your body won’t return to its original slim shape before birth. Your tummy is now like a deflated volleyball that looks saggy. But don’t fret, all mommies go through this stage! Wearing tight or fitting clothes aren’t advisable since they hug your figure, making your still recovering tummy visible. Go with tops or dresses that drape over that postpartum bump of yours to make you look slim, and tuck your bump in.

Go with Patterns

They look great on your body plus your baby will get entertained with the designs, so it’s kind of a win-win situation. Gone are the days when maternity clothes were bland and boring. There are a lot of designs with patterns that you could choose from. The key is to make sure that you choose patterns that don’t appear like it’s all over the place. You really wouldn’t want to look like a tiger or zebra so be careful!

Be Economical

There’s no need to spend money on clothes that won’t fit you in a few more months. You could use that money to spend on more attractive clothing instead. There’s no point in wearing expensive clothes either since they’ll probably be stained with milk or baby food. Be efficient in buying your clothes and choose the ones that are easy to clean since your clothes will probably be stained often by your new baby. Sure, you want to look good, but don’t neglect the fact that you have to dress wise too. After all, you wouldn’t want your baby to throw up all over an expensive cashmere sweater.

Stick with Easy to Clean

With the above-mentioned reason, clothes that are easier to clean should be one of your considerations since they’ll be easily soiled by your baby. Almost all moms have experienced one way or the other their blouse getting soiled with milk, drool or baby food. So better choose the ones that you can wash easily and quickly for your own convenience (and for the sake of your pocket).

Don’t Throw Away All Maternities
