My New Favorite: the Softest, Most-Flattering Pooch-Hiding T-Shirt Every Postpartum Mom Should Own



I have always wanted to be a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl.  Problem was (and still is) that t-shirts don’t fit my body very well.  I’m pear-shaped to begin with, so t-shirts that were small enough to fit my shoulders would most likely be too small around my belly.  Adding a post-partum pooch to the mix and t-shirts are definitely not the most flattering thing to wear.  Until now.  I bring you my new favorite t-shirt . . . it’s super soft, has a flattering drape, is available in a ton of colors and it’s on sale.  Yesssssss.  Although it says “tumble dry not allowed” on the tag, I’ve washed and dried it multiple times and it’s held its shape. (Ain’t nobody got time for that!)  All of you mamas with a post-partum belly . . . this shirt is your new best friend.

T-shirt: Jacksonville Jersey T-shirt

Jeans: Express Girlfriend Jeans

Jacket: GAP Quilted Moto Knit Jacket

Sandals: Old, but I’m drooling over these metallic gladiator sandals

Earrings: BaubleBar Ear Jackets

Watch: Nine West

PS, I’m loving this moto jacket from the GAP.  I love jackets that are soft and comfy and this one feels like a sweatshirt . . . the gray is sold out but the navy is gorgeous and on sale. (AND you can get 30% off the sale price with code “BETTER” bringing the total down to just under $50 . . . and they still give you free shipping and free returns. Can you tell I love a deal??)

Happy shopping!





    • I normally have to buy a size medium because otherwise they cling to my stomach, even though they’re slightly too big in the shoulders . . . for this one I ordered a small and it fits in the shoulders and is still baggy enough to not cling . . . hope that helps!

  1. I was reading this thinking “no t-shirt can be as perfect as my American vintage t-shirt…” And then I click through & realize it’s the same one 🙂
    Best t-shirt ever!

  2. Thanks Scotti…I’ve tried out several of your suggestions, and they always work great for me. Love this shirt and the color is beautiful!

  3. I’ll definitely have to look into this shirt. I am sporting a huge basketball of a belly right now and I know I will have to do some excellent pooch masking for quite some time. This looks like a comfy shirt for baby wearing too.

    Loving some of the recent post-partum posts!
