As Kate Middleton showed the world when she left the hospital with Prince George, a womans body doesnt spring back to normal immediately after the baby has left the womb. Even the Duchess of Cambridge proved to us that it took nine months to grow the baby bump and its going to take that much time (if not more!) to lose it.
The good news is that dressing for that post-pregnancy fourth trimester is easy and cost efficient. Check out these tips from Liz Lange on how to fake a flawless figure during the tricky in-between phase.
- Reuse and Recycle. Remember, the same gently worn items that got you through the first trimester when you were transitioning into your pregnancy are what you can go back to now that you are in the fourth trimester. Tops with an empire waist and side ruching are both flattering and nursing friendly.
- Slim Down in Black. Stick with a go-to LBD. The V-neckline is super flattering and the pleats help camouflage a tummy. Wear it with embellished flat sandals and stylish sunglasses for day and with espadrilles and colorful accessories for your first date night as a mom and dad.
- Casually Chic. To stay comfortable while still looking presentable during maternity leave, I suggest pairing a nursing-friendly tank (long enough to cover any problem areas) with stretchy black pants or cropped maternity jeans.
