Moms, we get it. Between feeding, burping, changing and generally keeping Baby happy, there’s little time to sneak in a shower or even a snack, let alone stay on top of fashion’s ever-changing trends. But just because your time is limited doesn’t mean looking stellar post-pregnancy is an impossibility.
We scoured fall’s biggest style hits and have compiled three chic looks you can rock at home, at work and for a night out. From stealth-like ways to keep leftover baby weight concealed to utilizing casual basics to create a look that’s flattering for all, these pieces will help you feel good about treating yourself to a mini wardrobe overhaul. Because, let’s face it: a body that grows a human is more than worthy of a bit of spoiling.
Though you may feel like you’re channeling your mom circa 1973, vintage-inspired throwbacks are one of fall’s biggest trends. The best part? These fashion gold pieces – think denim overalls, bell bottom jeans, high-waisted trousers, scoop-neck T-shirts, wedge sandals – have an edgy, yet casual spin to them, making the look easy to pull off for even the most fashioned-challenged among us.
Look for flared jeans that sit high on the waist to help elongate your body while minimizing problem areas around your stomach. Pair them with a cozy blanket cape, a neutral coloured ¾-sleeve shirt, Bravado’s Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra to mold perfectly to your breast shape, and keep jewelry dainty with a collection of layered necklaces or stackable rings.
Clothes that help create a ‘long and lean’ silhouette? Yes, please. Designers gave a nod to lengthened frocks for fall, and the longer hemlines not only flatter most figures when done right, they also add an air of era-spanning elegance to any ensemble.
The key is in the proportions. Keep skirts, pants and culottes long (think below the knee) and relatively close-cut, and pair with a top, tunic or vest that falls at least to the hip. Choose a bra like Bravado’s Essential Embrace that supports while creating a slimming effect, and when accessorizing, go big with a chunky heel and/or oversized bag. Just remember to keep additions streamlined to maintain the focus on your elongated shape.
Fashion can’t get enough of the fuss-free, easy wearability of the T-shirt dress, so it comes as no surprise that the signature piece so frequently seen on runways is having another moment. That the style accentuates the best of our figure while hiding post-pregnancy trouble spots makes us love it all the more.
There’s no shortage of styles for this season’s most coveted dress, but for a night out, look for an option with an elegant floral print to add visual interest. Choose a length that best suits your stature, and wear it on its own or with opaque tights or slim-cut black pants underneath. Pair with Bravado’s Bliss Nursing Bra, with seamless, lined foam cups that provide full nipple coverage under clothing, and add a chic, glossy patent bag, and croc-embossed leather heels to dial up the glam.
