Postpartum & Nursing-Friendly Style

Hey, New Mamas! Welcome to The Mom Edit, and WELCOME to our world! Ahhhh…we’re guessing you found us by searching for postpartum bathing suits or nursing bras and bralettes…or maybe, in observing this…(gestures broadly) new and constantly changing body of yours, you decided it was time for some new loungewear…ahem…hello, stretchy pants.

Below you’ll find some of our favorite postpartum outfit ideas (oh, hey nursing-friendly tops), and our years of trying out all things post-baby. Between all mamas on the team, we’ve been popping out babies (ha) for 10+ years, so there’s lots of expertise here. In fact, the blog (formerly “Ain’t No Mom Jeans”) was itself birthed during my maternity and postpartum years….12 years, later, here we are. Join us, and let us know if there’s something in particular you’d like to see.

A few game-changing essentials for the 4th trimester...
Soft...flattering...(pretty standard for Vuori)...this is the best jumpsuit I've ever worn. RUN--don't walk--to add this ridiculously comfy romper to your wardrobe.
This jumpsuit is back for 2022!
Crazy comfortable, and I'll wear 'em even after maternity.
My reqs for an activewear dress: built-in shorts, a built-in bra (OR the ability to wear a normal bra), moisture-wicking material & of course, pockets. The Athleta Expedition Dress checks ALL these boxes, plus the color is fab.
It has built-in shorts AND pockets.
Mamas — nursing-friendly wedding guest dress on your summer planning list? Don't forget a matching baby wrap! Our formula for fancy breastfeeding style.
Pretty dresses (and even prettier baby carriers), inside.
I personally embrace the youthful energy of overalls & find they’re super-easy + fun to wear. I’m breaking down the 6 ways I’m rocking 'em — from 1 strap up to paired w/ heeled booties.
How we're wearing these now (over sweaters) and when it's full on summer.
Are you, too, on a revenge journey and fashion is the elusive leopard shark that ate your former bestie? If so, then consider the coverall jumpsuit your tiny submarine pod filled with your current entourage of misfits on your quest to life beyond retribution. Haha maybe that makes no sense to you, and you're just here for the easy outfit...
Sponsored by Nordstrom and ShopStyle Collective It's no secret that I love a little glam, and summertime is no different. Beach glam doesn't have to be hard - a few key accessories can make your go-to beach look downright fancy. (Think: vacation.) There are a few go-to's I've had for years now: a black maxi cover-up that can easily go...
I’m a beach girl all the way, but I don’t typically love swimwear. So when this suit arrived in the mail and I tried it on, I could barely believe my eyes. Not only was this one-piece arguably the cutest piece of swimwear I have ever tried on, it was really comfortable. Adjustable straps? Check. Light (removable) padding in the...
A light fleece. A cute Dolman jacket. An oversized hoodie. An anorak parka...Vuori, Gap, Free People...These are the 5 spring jackets I wear on repeat.
There’s something you should know about me: I’m a jacket person. Shoes are the last part of an outfit I think about. I still carry a purse I found at a discount store in 2013 (been meaning to update that). I misplace almost every cute accessory and pair of sunglasses.  But Jackets. I have to stop myself from buying every one...
These are 4 toys that my husband I now totally swear by for traveling w/ our toddler, arguably the only things we need to pack. That + snacks, lots & lots of snacks.
My little family recently made the trip to San Diego, my husband’s hometown, to finally bring our son there to introduce him to all of his daddy’s favorite places. We were so excited.  But getting to San Diego meant taking our wiggly, enthusiastic, social-yet-shy-pandemic-baby toddler on a plane for the first time. That felt less exciting. The Top 4 Toddler Toys...
It's technically springtime, but as I woke up this morning we were greeted with a lovely little snowstorm. At any moment we'll have sunny skies and temps in the 50s because, well, that's just northern Michigan for you. I'm always tired of my winter sweaters and boots by this point, but naturally, it's not quite time to slip into...
I fell in love with Vuori the second I felt the brushed jersey DreamKnit™ fabric of their Performance Joggers. So when I saw there's a new boyfriend fit in that same dreamy fabric...I snapped them up immediately.
I fell in love with Vuori the second I felt the brushed jersey DreamKnit™ fabric their Performance Joggers are made from. If you've felt it, you know what I mean...that insanely soft, omg I want to live in this all day kind of fabric that you never want to take off. Shana loves them, Amy loves them, Linzi, Laura...basically...
I found the perfect travel outfit. Or at least, the perfect travel pants. (Thanks, Free People!) Easy to wear, lightweight, interesting details, sporty but pretty.
Let's just jump to the point, shall we? I think I found the perfect travel outfit. Or at the very least, I found the perfect travel pants. They're easy to wear, extremely light, and even have interesting little details. They're sporty but pretty, and available in three stunning hues fit for dopamine dressing. But it took a major packing fail...
I'm always on the hunt for a fantastic dress I can wear on repeat during the warm weather months. I specifically search for one that won't have any risk of wardrobe malfunctions, is comfortable enough for a lazy summer day, and is easy to move in. Bonus points if it can be worn both to a wedding and casually...
I can already tell that these will be THE PANTS of the spring (& summer) for me. They're so easy & relaxed & I love them. Don't want to wear jeans? These. Not feeling shorts? These.
Thank you to Backcountry & ShopStyle Collective for sponsoring this post. I fell in love with these cargo pants by Free People the second I saw them on Backcountry's website. They reminded me of a favorite pair I had back in the early 2000s...somewhat slouchy, a bit baggier, worn lower around the waist and insanely comfortable. I wore those...
There's just something about the combo of these true blue jeans with soft, creamy whites--it feels especially fresh for spring & a nice change from my winter blacks & grays.
Come spring, I often find myself wanting to just...lighten up. Lighter skies, lighter mind, lighter colors. And this year, I've been really drawn to denim in a hue that I've started thinking of as, "true blue". True blue jeans aren't light wash jeans, but they're not navy, either. They're just a really pretty shade of real, blue-jean blue. The...
There’s 1 Vuori lounge set in particular that is so useful, I can’t remember the last trip I took without it. It'll likely come as no surprise that half of this set is a pair of Vuori Performance Joggers.
We love us some Vuori around here. Not only are all the editors on the team huge fans, but most of our partners swear by the stuff, too. So much so that Vuori finally took notice, which is why you'll see The Mom Edit doing fairly frequent collaborations with the brand. It's a dream. That said, this is not one...
Here at The Mom Edit, we often get asked about the best swimsuits for after baby: postpartum suits that flatten the pooch, feature tummy control, cover stretch marks & fit in a flattering, supportive way. We got you.
One of the things we often get asked, here at The Mom Edit, is what are the best swimsuits for after-baby? Typically, everyone’s looking for postpartum suits that flatten the pooch, feature tummy control, cover stretch marks and fit in a flattering, supportive way. It’s a topic we’ve been discussing for years now.  What we're not interested in? Bathing suits...
I scoured Nordstrom for a winning swimsuit (or 2) to rock all summer. From colorful 1-piece prints + a sexy li'l black suit by BLEU, to a sweet gingham by Robin Piccone... -- I'm pleasantly surprised by the swimsuits & bikinis for 2022.
Swimsuit try-ons used to require a lot of emotional lifting. It wasn't just an article of clothing; it was a moral indictment. That was until I reached a point last year and had a lightbulb moment; "What if I'm the perfect size just the way I am? What could I be doing if I didn't spend so much time...
What to Wear to a Wedding is still 1 of our readers’ top questions. I swear we could dedicate an entire month to wedding guest attire. For this post, I want to focus on wedding guest dresses for new moms.
This post was originally published in -- whoa -- 2012, and, frankly, I'm having trouble wrapping my brain around that fact. So here we are, a whole decade later, and What to Wear to a Wedding is still one of our readers' top questions. I swear we could dedicate an entire month to wedding guest attire. For this post,...
It's probably no surprise to anyone by now that Vuori is one of my top favorite apparel brands. I just can't get enough. Their pieces are well worth it, as you can wear them for working out or traveling, as well as casually for everyday comfort (and I do, all of the above). What began as curiosity over their...
Eberjey sets feel like they were MADE for me. Pajamas I can lounge in all day long... pjs I can sleep in comfortably year-round...pjs I'm not embarrassed to rock when opening the door for UPS...ps that make me feel just glam enough.
I parted ways with my entire assortment of torn, stained, and hole-ridden t-shirts and soft pants that I called "pajamas." All of them. Gone. This purge was followed by research and investment in a few pairs of high-quality Eberjey pajama sets to wear on repeat -- saying goodbye to my nightly dig of finding good-enough shabby matches. I am...
