HOW TO DRESS FOR YOUR POSTPARTUM BODY
May 05, 2017
Like most other new mothers, I experienced a shift in priorities once my baby was born. During my pregnancy I had time to take care of myself, especially since I didn't have other little ones at home.
Then Dafne showed up! I still looked pregnant, nothing fit and I had less time for me. The nursing tops I had bought were ill-fitting, bad quality and made me look pregnant. That's why everything we make is not just functional - we think about how each piece can hide and compliment.
Here's a breakdown of flattering trends and where our pieces fit in:
1) Loose Dresses
They're easy to slip on and don't have to constrict your belly. And you only have to think about 1 piece instead of a matching top and bottom in the morning. Our Penelope and Chloe dresses have an easy fit and completely hide your belly. No one will think you're still pregnant in these stylish and fun summer dresses.

2) Tunic Style Tops
We think loose fitting tunic styles are the way to go if you're looking for comfort while hiding your postpartum belly. And because you shouldn't sacrifice style, our Caterina Top is loose AND stylish. Nursing and pumping couldn't be easier - just slide over the top panel. See our "How to Breastfeed" guide on each product page.
Vertical stripes are slimming. Plus, leakage tends not to show through the stripes. Our Vivian Dress has them and so do our classic Mia and Gaia Shirts. You'll not only breastfeed your baby easily but you'll look slender too. The hidden snaps open quickly so you can start nursing your little one as soon as he gets hungry.
4) Darker Colors
Black will never go out of style and it's slimming, but why not also try other similarly flattering shades? A gorgeous burgundy color, maybe? Our Greta's two tones of dark burgundy and light pink is our best trick yet. Wear it and pump discretely and comfortably in the mother's room at work. If you're shy nursing in public, this top couldn't be more discrete as the top flaps conveniently cover all skin while breastfeeding.
Hope these tips will help you look and feel great about yourself after your little one arrives!
