Fashion Tips For Hiding The Post-Partum Pouch

When a new mum first bears witness to the slight swell of her newly pregnant belly, she cannot help but feel a surge of love, happiness, and joy. After the baby arrives and that uterus is empty, however, most mums no longer wish to still look as if she is six months pregnant.

There may not be much that you can do about your “post-partum pouch” right after your newest addition is born, but you canconceal your tummy with the right clothes.

Go For Tops With Some “Swing”

No other style of top will have strangers asking, “When are you due?” like an empire-waist top, and tight tanks and tees will make your post-partum tummy only all the more apparent. The best tops and dresses to wear to hide your tummy are those which offer some movement.

One of our favourite new Peachymama styles is ourtwist breastfeeding tops. Featuring a lovely drape and made out of viscose and Spandex, these twist breastfeeding tops completely conceal a post-partum tummy while still being designed to flatter your sizzling new mama curves.

Gentle Shapewear Is Your Friend

You do not need to try to squeeze into an all-over body suit during the summer. Camis and pants which offer “shaping” can do wonders when it comes to trimming your tummy.

Our seamlesshigh waisted pants come in three styles (narrow bootleg, skinny leg and three quarter gathered) and many of our c-section mamas have told us how they appreciate the lack of extra pressure our waistbands apply to their tender scar area.

As you lose the baby weight, you have the option of folding the waistband down so that these pants can be comfortably worn well after your baby has arrived.

Choose Gorgeous Patterns

Splurge a bit and choose tops which speak to your personality. We are in love with one of our newest tops, our beautifulIndie Print ¾ Sleeve Breastfeeding Top. Featuring a stylised white and light blue floral print set on a dark blue background, this top hugs your beautiful new curves while offering full coverage of your belly.

We have recently added a number ofbrand new breastfeeding-friendly fashions here at Peachymama which are perfect for thewinter season.

We invite you to browse our breastfeeding clothing selections, read more of our blog, and learn more about how our range is designed with new mums in mind.
