From Maternity to Postpartum

When I purchase maternity clothes, I actually put a lot of thought into whether I could wear it postpartum as well.

Pink Blush Maternity KimonoAs most new moms can relate, my belly isn’t immediately flat after leaving the hospital, and it’s important to have comfy and cute clothes to wear once you get home. Even after having the baby, there is still a lot of swelling – much more than I had expected. The thought of putting on non-maternity pants right after delivery sounds awful!

Plus, I have c-sections with my babies, so I require elastic and stretch – especially around my incision area. I love leggings that stretch up over my belly for additional pressure and support. It feels so nice during recovery!

So when I was choosing another piece from Pink Blush Maternity, I knew I wanted something that could transition well from Maternity to Postpartum. When I spotted this lightweight maternity kimono, I thought it would be a great piece for both stages. Right now it is nice to pair over a simple maternity dress, and this fall I can pair it will a nursing cami and leggings after delivery.

The kimono is really soft and huge – feels like your wearing a blanket – yet makes an outfit look complete. It’s the perfect finishing touch! I wore the kimono to  brunch over a maternity dress from Gap, and paired it with lace-up gladiator sandals that I purchased from Target last spring.

  3. I definitely wore my maternity clothes past my pregnancy. It’s been 5 months and I’m just now transitioning back to my pre-momma wardrobe! Love that dusty pink. 🙂
