As Written for On The Coast Families

Whether you are 2 months or 2 years post pregnancy, adapting to your new shape can be daunting, frustrating and confusing. However, with the right knowledge and styling techniques it doesn’t have to be!!

Before we continue, we want to remind you to be kind to yourself and acknowledge you have bought life into this world. So focus your mindset on the positives in your life and things you like about your physical appearance – it will change your mind set instantaneously.

Don’t think because your shape isn’t what it use to be, that you need to sacrifice your style and dress safe or opt for baggy clothes. Always try to add in some element to your look that depicts your style. Opting for accessories also means fit is not important! For example if you have a fun, quirky style add in a statement necklace or some bright coloured sneakers. If your style is more modern and luxe try a crystal headband teamed with a tee, pull on jeans and a loafer shoe.

REMINDER : Don’t compare yourself to who you were pre pregnancy! It won’t do you any good. Just focus on the here and now and start to discover new things that you appreciate and like about your body!

A Few Styling Tips To Try :

  • Overalls are amazing as they have room and can be dressed up with a blazer on cool days and dressed down with a tank/tee on warmer days.
  • A Slip Dress is ideal as they are not waisted and can be layered. For example; wear with a tee underneath to create a pinafore look or layer a longline cardi or unstructured blazer over the top for when a little added warmth is needed.
  • Knit Stretch Pants are great as they are comfy and can be layered with a relaxed tee and oversized denim jacket for a casual vibe that isn’t gym tights and a jumper.
  • Kimono or a long line shirt dress are fantastic as they can create the illusion of length in the torso and be layered over something more fitted without leaving you feeling too exposed.

CHANGE YOUR LOOK WITH ACCESSORIES!

If you find a garment that fits, is comfy and you love, get creative and dress it up/down for various occasions. Accessories will become your new best friend (and they always fit!!)

  • A statement earring, glitzy clutch and ankle boot are perfect additions to your jeans and blouse for dinner at the pub.
  • A comfy sneaker, coloured cross body bag and bold necklace teamed back with the same jeans and blouse is a great alternative for a coffee date and groceries.

Regardless of where you are post pregnancy, have fun with colour, work with layers, embrace your style and enjoy the days with your new little bundle of joy!

Vibrantly yours,
