“Finding clothes that fit my pregnant/nursing/postpartum body is ______.” What is your blank? My blank would’ve been all over the place a year ago…from impossible, to attainable, to I-don’t-want-to-talk-about-it, to manageable-but-meh. After I had Izzy, I felt like nothing I tried on was really working for my postpartum body shape. I was shrinking in some places, yet staying the same in other places, it was very hard to find clothes that fit. I was on the hunt for clothes that:
- were classic and flattering
- I could easily nurse in
- I could grow a bump into for baby number two
- I would still want to keep around heading into my 30’s which is only a year away.
After really searching high and low outside of my normal go-to stores, I finally have found some timeless, fun pieces at a great price that work well for a classic capsule postpartum wardrobe heading into spring and summer! They’re all nursing friendly, great to work a bump into later on, and styles that I can add a pop of color to with an accessory, patterned or textured bag or shoe, a bold lip color, or fun hairstyle.
A capsule collection should be versatile, transitional, and functional for every season. Pick a few core pieces you truly love for your body, add in your favorite accessories to create texture and vibrancy, and embrace a more simplistic timeless wardrobe!
