Get your personal style back with a pair of post-pregnancy jeans or trousers from Mamalicious. We want you to feel your best, so we’ve paid careful attention to every detail to make sure that you can dedicate all your focus to your little bundle of joy and healing body. All styles are made from soft, breathable materials with plenty of stretch. They have elastic panels around the waist, and they fasten in the back to eliminate any discomfort from zips or buttons in the front. Style them with a loose-fitting nursing top or tunic, cool sneakers and your favourite pieces of jewellery. If you don’t feel ready to jump back into jeans just yet, you can opt for a comfy nursing dress instead. Just layer with tights or bike shorts on cooler days.
Which post-partum bottoms are best?
If this is your first baby, you might be wondering which post-partum bottoms to choose. Do you go for jeans or leggings? Can you still use your maternity tights? Or are dresses better?
The most important thing first: Comfort. No matter how your baby came into this world, you’ll be sore and healing for a good amount of time. You’ve done a lot of hard work the last 9 months, so treat yourself to the softest items you can find. Select a pair of post-partum jeans or leggings that fit your body as you are right now – you’re looking for a fit that is just right around the belly and not too tight around the bottom. A snug fit can help feeling more “held together” in the first weeks after the birth, but you want to avoid anything that feels restrictive. You can also opt for a dress, a skirt or even sweatpants in the very beginning, so you aren’t inadvertently adding to any tenderness you might be experiencing.
And yes, you can definitely use the leggings or tights you used during your pregnancy (at least until the top gets too loose). Just make sure you choose natural fibres such as cotton for comfort and breathability. These are also perfect under a nursing dress if it’s too cold for bare legs. Once you’ve selected your tops and bottoms, don’t forget to browse our selection of soft and practical basics to ensure head-to-toe comfort in this new life of yours.
