July 25, 2009
Between the round-the-clock feedings and constant diaper changes, the last thing new moms can comprehend is how to throw together an outfit that looks good and feels good. Follow our stress-free advice to help new-moms feel their best with these tips on how to flatter your post-baby body.
Tip #1: Interesting necklines and/or necklaces will draw attention up and away from your postpartum tummy and direct it at your beautiful new-mom glow.
Tip #2: Printed or patterned tops paired with dark jeans or pants also draws the attention up and creates the illusion of a slimmer torso.
Tip #3: Shift dresses are a hot look right now and they are an easy way to disguise your post-baby belly. Throw on some sassy heels or sandals, an eye-catching necklace and you are ready to hit the town!
Tip #4: Guard against the dreaded “muffin top” by avoiding jeans that are too tight and opting for drawstring pants or skirts with a stretchy waistband. Shapewear, such as Sassybax, is another great option to keep your tummy pulled in. Many of today’s shapewear options are made of stretchy, breathable fabrics that feel great to wear while taking inches off instantly!
