Need your opinion ladies....Post Partum Clothes Shopping!

I want to buy some really cute pant/ leggings for after my baby is born (due date is in 2 weeks) as a motivational tool to get healthy and pre-pregnancy size again. I’ve held off on shopping bc obviously it doesn’t make sense lol but these pants are so cute I feel like they’d make me feel good after baby is born. Do I: A) wait to buy bc it may be setting myself up for failure B) Buy them in my pre-pregnancy size or C) Buy them in the next size up from my pre-pregnancy size?

I’d buy leggings and cute button up shirts (if you plan to breastfeed) i bought homma leggings on amazon and they make me feel great! I bought them in my pre-pregnancy size and they fit as expected...maybe a little snug but i like that it sucked everything in lol. Worst case if you buy something and it doesn’t work Out just return it.

Postpartum shopping is depressing at least for me. I have a 3 month old daughter and I dislike shopping now. Because your shape is different and nothing seems to fit right. I try to stay away from leggings because you truly won't know what you need to wear to look good. Shopping slowly will help you find the right clothing for the new you.

Definatley buy the bra at the size you are now. For clothes, the first few weeks you will be in so much pain you will not care what you're wearing, so I'd advise getting baggy sweatpants and nursing nightgowns. I felt for the first month and a half that I wanted to go back to wearing what I wore before, all the belly shirts and whatever but after a few months my style changed and now all I care about is cute mom looking fall outfits. For excersizing I felt leggings were too hot and didnt feel comfortable with the mom belly at first, I wore shorts and a sports bra

Dont worry, you wont really need maternity leggings after, I mean it helps to have big clothes for the first week but your stomach shrinks down to normal size unbelievably quick

Target has some post-partum jeans that were great for helping me feel human the first few weeks after my 👶. Your hips may get wider regardless of weight you lose, so don't stress yourself out!

I always wait a few weeks postpartum and go buy a few things that fit. I can’t stand hanging around in ill fitting clothes for that long. I like feeling put together.
