There's no getting around the fact that heading back to work after baby's arrival is challenging. We can tell you to go easy on yourself but know, all too well, that 'mama guilt' is real and emotionally it takes time to transition. Physically, it's also a challenge, between lack of sleep, your new mom bod and for many of you - breastfeeding moms, pumping at the office. It's enough to make some of us want to put our pjs back on and crawl under the covers. But, don't do that just yet...these "wardrobe" tips from Daily Mom are here to help.
The key is to select a few staple pieces that can be mixed and matched making them useful in different settings. Dark, solid colors and dark prints or patterns are always a good bet since they can be paired with a variety of bottoms from black pants to jeans. Generally speaking, solid colors may be more versatile, but patterns are less likely to show any potential milk stains.
Nursing tops and dresses featuring double layers, hidden zippers, or wrap style closures are the simplest choices. Loose and flowy blouses are also accommodating for breastfeeding moms, however, depending on how you chose to pump may appear wrinkled or stretched out after a pumping session.
We love the Belly Bandit Perfect Nursing Dress. This dress is ideal for pairing with heels for a day at work, or even a cute pair of flats for a day on the town with your newest addition. With inconspicuous side zippers for super simple breastfeeding or pumping access, you will look cute and stylish in this dress.
Crafted of super soft fabric, this dress is comfortable enough to wear all day. Better yet it is sleeveless and cool, but thick enough to conceal all those post-partum imperfections. Finally, the fitted design will make you feel beautiful which is something all new mamas need.
Wear the Perfect Nursing Dress with a pair of Mother Tucker Shorties underneath for an even slimmer and sexier silhouette. With 360 degrees of compression for your tummy, butt, and thighs, and design of a lightweight, smooth and breathable material, this shapewear fits like a second skin.
Go back to work looking gorgeous and exuding confidence like the extraordinary mama you are!
