How to celebrate your new mum wardrobe
New mums: The wardrobe tips to taking it easy on yourself
There’s no doubt that becoming a mum changes your body shape, yet save yourself from stressing and unnecessary pressure and re-look at your wardrobe to simply adapt your outfit choices to reflect your current shape.
Here are some simple wardrobe tips to help you focus on the new little person to take care of and ease any uncalled for pressure on how your wardrobe will fare:
1. Don’t be too quick to ditch the maternity clothes
You might feel comfortable wearing some of your maternity clothes for a few weeks or a couple of months after giving birth – with the variety of maternity care around now, if you like the look and comfort of the maternity wear, embrace it for longer.
2. Don't hide in your clothes
Choose big, baggy clothes if that's your style and what you like, but don't be afraid to celebrate your post baby curves if you want to – don't forget your body just did something amazing!
3. Don’t rush or put pressure on yourself to be back in all your pre-baby clothes
Keep them safe and don’t try them on too often ‘just to see’. It took 9 months to grow the baby, your whole body has gone through some massive changes so be kind to yourself and accept some changes along the way and try some different looks.
4. Make sure you wear a properly fitting bra
Your boobs might feel like they can’t decide on a cup size these past few months, but get yourself measured again, get comfy and enjoy your post-baby bust.
5. Try same colour look
Think about trying a long, lean and clean look. Try wearing the same colour or similar shades top to toe.
6. Break up your look with different textures
Why not try mixing up similar coloured textures for a different look.
7. Mix up your footwear
Nowadays there are plenty of other flat pumps and wedges other than trainers if you prefer that finish to an outfit without compromising comfort.
8. Dress up with leggings
If you like wearing leggings, experiment wearing longer tops with them – this can bean easy, comfortable and often very stylish look to wear.
9. Add just one accessory
Whether it’s a belt, necklace, bold earrings, a colourful scarf or a crossbody bag, that one focal point can make you feel that bit more fabulous.
