Dressing after baby can be a difficult task. While your maternity clothes may not fit anymore, there's a chance you're not ready for your pre-baby clothes—and that's totally normal! Losing the baby weight healthily takes time, and it can take a while for the uterus to shrink back to its normal size. For the in-between period, finding great postpartum clothes can make all of the difference. For a range of clothes that are flattering, supportive and stretchy enough to accommodate your post-baby body, check out these stylish options.
Comfortable, supportive leggings aren't just for pregnant moms—moms who just gave birth deserve soft, stretchy material that feels great to wear, too. Even better than average leggings, control-top leggings are designed for postpartum women. They have support and control panels that offer core stability, shaping and smoothing and coverage for areas that many women can feel self-conscious about post-baby. Check out these awesome postpartum leggings from Motherhood Maternity, Target, Amazon and more.
