When you’re just out of pregnancy, your body will be going through a lot of changes, so it can be difficult to decide on clothes. You’ll be dropping baby weight, you will need some extra bust room since you’re nursing, and as your body recovers from the pregnancy you’ll start to carry yourself differently. Meanwhile, you’re getting to know a brand new person! Who has the time to look at nursing clothes?
Well, we do, and here are some ideas for nursing dresses, when you want to look great and still be able to nurse your new arrival.
If you have broad shoulders, you need to balance them with a strong vertical element, and wear sleeves that are simple and not too bulky so you don’t make yourself look even wider. The Giselle Tie Front nursing dress is a great choice. The plunging neckline gives it a great vertical presence, emphasizing your height and allowing your natural beauty to shine through.
In order to create a classic hourglass figure, choose a dress like the Shawl Nursing Tunic & Dress, whose shawl panels crossed over the belly area create an impression of a tight, slim waist and add presence to the shoulders. The taut miniskirt section emphasizes the hips and buttocks, making this a great way to show off your assets tastefully. Worn over leggings or jeans, this will make you look great.
If you’re still carrying some of your baby weight and you’re looking for something beautiful and comfortable, the Renee Nursing Dress is my top pick. There are lots of nursing dresses that can give you an hourglass look; here is one that will give that to you without squishing you into it. The cut of the body panel and generous drape of the sleeves give you plenty of room to move.
