The Inverted Triangle Shaped Body

An inverted triangle body shape is determined by the broad shoulder in comparison to the lower half of the body. The waist probably doesn’t have any space with the hips. Women with inverted triangle body types must avoid tops that highlight their shoulders. Big straps, Halter neck tops should be avoided. Try to balance your upper half with v-necks, crewnecks, scoop necks and peplum tops. For the lower half, you can opt for flared pants, boyfriend jeans, wide-legged jeans or large prints to volumize your lower body. These sorts of bottoms help to create a balance between the upper and lower part of the body.

6 Clothes You Need for Your Postpartum Body


The first article of clothing that we suggest is sweatpants. Now, you might be thinking that sweatpants make you look like a slob. So why should you wear them, right? Well, you’re wrong. When styled correctly, something as simple as grey sweatpants can look great. One of the best and trendiest ways to style sweatpants are pairing them with a solid-colored hoodie and a pair of white sneakers. Wear a couple of thin gold chains or golden hoops for some added oomph. Sweatpants are the latest trend in athleisure and they flatter all body shapes.  They are the perfect clothes for a postpartum mom.

Nursing Bra

As we all know, undergarments are essential to a good outfit. If you’re not wearing the right kind of undergarments, you’ll just not be comfortable regardless of what you’re wearing outside. That is why another essential piece that you must have is a nursing bra. A nursing bra is similar to a sports bra, but the difference is that there usually aren’t any finicky hooks and the cups are easily removable for breastfeeding. They’re generally made of comfortable and breathable jersey material as well. Remember that before you purchase a nursing bra, make sure to check your cup and chest size.


Cozy Sweater

People might tell you otherwise, but the truth is, sweaters are a magical garment. It’s one of the few pieces of clothing which looks better when worn slightly loose and oversized, which makes it perfect for a post-pregnancy outfit. Sweaters come in various materials as well. So even if you’re in a hotter climate, or it’s still summer where you’re living, you can wear some type of sweater without sweating buckets. Styling sweaters is a piece of cake, and you can elevate your outfit with a few pieces of jewelry or a nice bag. For the perfect comfy and casual yet chic look, wear your sweater with a pair of leggings, sneakers, golden hoops, and put your hair in a sleek, slicked-back bun.


Speaking of leggings, there was no way we could skip out from putting leggings on our list, right? Leggings are a godsend, and they are the epitome of comfort with style. Make sure that you have a good range of flexible leggings on hand. Now, although most women prefer low waisted leggings as it keeps pressure off the stomach, you can opt for high waisted as well. Especially if you’re looking for a bit of a “Spanx” effect and you want to cinch in your tummy and waist. Pairing the leggings with a strappy top and sandals will give you the perfect summer fit. On the other hand, you can match them up with a plain sweatshirt or sweater for a fall look.

5 Ways Anyone Can Look More Attractive

Wrap Tops

An amazing piece of clothing that hardly gets the love it deserves is wrap tops, and they are perfect for the postpartum body. Wrap tops, as the name implies, are two-part tops that you can wrap on your torso with a belt. The reason as to why they’re perfect for the postpartum period is because it allows for easy breastfeeding. These tops are also made in flexible materials, so you don’t have to struggle with tight straps or clothing that doesn’t give you any breathing space. Coincidentally, wrap tops are very much “in” right now and you can wear them with a loose mid-length skirt and low heeled sandals for a super chic but extremely comfortable look.


Our final pick is a nice pair of pajamas. There is no mistaking that a large chunk of your postpartum period will be spent at home, recovering and resting. That is why you need a pair of comfy pajamas that give you ample space to breathe and do not make you feel constricted. Although you can make do with ordinary pajamas, purchasing maternity pajamas are better because, again, it allows for easy breastfeeding. Nowadays, maternity pajamas are available in a variety of beautiful and elegant designs which will make you look great even with your jammies on. Make sure that regardless of whichever pair you buy, they should be lightweight and soft.

How To Avoid Frumpy Mom Fashion This Spring

Finding the right clothes for the postpartum period doesn’t need to be difficult.  With comfort as your first priority, you shouldn’t have to be frumpy all the time either.  Feeling confident in your postpartum body can help boost your mood and improve your confidence, which is especially important for new moms. Looking good can help you feel good and that’s what’s most important.

5 Chic Winter Fashion Tips for Expecting Moms

We are big believers that busy moms can still have functional and fashionable wardrobes.

When it comes to winter fashion, expectant moms often struggle.  Any mother can tell you that, while pregnant, there’s a whole separate set of fashion challenges to face. Simply put, your body is changing, and this can leave even the most confident of fashionistas uncertain about how to dress. This is especially true during the winter, when it can seem that all maternity clothing consists of bulky outerwear and unflattering sweaters, without too many stylish options mixed in.

Thankfully, there are so many comfortable pieces that can be found outside of the maternity section that will keep you stylish and warm, and fit just fine.

So here are five chic, cozy winter fashion staples for moms-to-be!
5 Chic Winter Fashion Tips for Expecting Moms

Turtleneck Dress

A figure-hugging turtleneck dress is a great way to show off your adorable baby bump without really feeling confined or compressed. There are actually a lot of good options for this kind of garment making the rounds this winter season, though we’d have to say Elizabeth and James’ latest turtleneck dress is a particularly festive choice. The Clementine Space-Dye Wool Turtleneck Dress from the brand looks like something straight out of a 1970s fashion magazine – which, with vintage looks trendier than ever, is always a major bonus!

Fleece Lined Footless Tights

Even when you aren’t pregnant, fleece lined footless tights can be life savers when temperatures drop. They’re also quite handy, given that they’re fairly versatile and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. For instance, some of these tights paired with a jersey top and tennis shoes is an adorable look when you have to head out on some holiday errands – but you’d also look incredible rocking the tights with a sequined silver sweater and a pair of chunky black boots at your next festive get-together. The main draw of these pieces for expecting mothers specifically, though, is that they’re super stretchy, meaning they can adjust and last through the duration of your pregnancy.

Wool-Blend Long Plaid Coat

A plaid wool coat is arguably one of the classiest types of winter fashion outerwear you can buy. Typically though, some pregnant women may feel that wool coats can be too restrictive (especially during the last trimester). A long, more relaxed version of the coat, however, can be just the thing. The brand Woman Within presents a number of coats and jackets suitable for all sizes, and happens to have a Wool-Blend Long Plaid Coat that perfectly combines the chic quality of the garment with the inclusive fit so many moms-to-be will appreciate. Its flattering cut will suit any body type, and it can even be worn open if it’s not too cold outside.


Boyfriend Jeans

A good pair of blue jeans is always a winter fashion essential (if not a year-’round one) but wearing denim can be somewhat tricky during pregnancy. It’s not the most forgiving fabric, particularly with a new pair, and so it can be difficult to find a pair of jeans that is both comfortable and fashionable. But this is where boyfriend jeans come in. These jeans – which tend to have a far more generous cut and relaxed design – happen to be very much “on trend,” and will look great with other seasonal staples, such as a black thermal top and a cozy cardigan.

Billowy Jumpsuit

Lastly, if you’re in a bind and can’t figure out to what to wear for a holiday party while pregnant, we’d suggest an always-fun billowy jumpsuit. For this season, the stylish designer Halston has a gorgeous option with a relaxed fit that’s well worth looking at, either as a specific option or simply as inspiration. The Asymmetrical Wide Leg Jumpsuit is designed in ultra-chic fashion, but made such that it’s roomy enough to remain comfortable during your pregnancy. A piece like this in white, or perhaps a festive red, can actually be quite the statement at your next holiday party!

Being pregnant can make some women feel extra large and unattractive over the holidays.  And no one wants to splurge on maternity wear they may only wear for a single season.  These winter fashion tips can help you enjoy your pregnancy, and the holidays, even when it’s cold outside.  And the best part is, they’ll likely be staples in your wardrobe for years to come!
