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.

Postpartum & Nursing-Friendly Style

I scoured the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for the best things for new moms, & this postpartum capsule hits those casual & playful vibes. Think: a Doona stroller, cute tops & easy shoes.
That Doona can pass as a capsule piece, right? Right.
Ready for a nursing-bra upgrade? Here are my 13 top picks (think: gorg colors, wireless & lace bralettes) from go-to brands Natori, Kindred Bravely & more.

Instead of using my postpartum-recovery tips on a 5th baby, I'll share them w/ you: essential clothing, meals, self-care, etc. that helped me heal faster than I did in my 20s.
It's a shame you get good at having babies once you're done.
My postpartum body changed what I wear, so on our Cartagena getaway, I got out of my comfort zone. Here are the 6 outfits that made me feel sexy & confident.
Julieta, take us with you next time!
Finding postpartum swimsuits is HARD. I'm trying all the mom bathing suits (tankinis, high-waist bikinis, tummy-control, ruched swimwear) to see what works.
Here's to sunny afternoons in pretty post-baby bikinis.
Need a packing list for a dreamy Caribbean babymoon w/ gorg maternity clothes (swimsuits, sandals, loungewear) you'll want to wear past pregnancy? I got you.
Soak it allll in, Mama.
Behold -- my pregnancy capsule wardrobe for the best pregnancy outfits.
Mamas, you're gonna want to see this.
Looking for the BEST maternity leggings? I'm trying & reviewing 2 of the most talked-about brands, Spanx & Blanqi, + a well-reviewed 3rd (Ingrid & Isabel).
Mamas, it's time to get your leggings ON.
The Best Maternity Outfits For Sporty & Comfy Pregnancy Style
Bump or no bump, we still wanna look cute.
Barre3 is the best fitness class, ever. Strength, joy, body positivity — these workouts empower from postpartum to perimenopause, in-studio or online.
A long overdue review of one of our favorite workouts, ever.
Camouflaging alllll the stains.
True & Co put in the hard work, listened to women & created a truly comfy line of bras. Until then, I hadn't realized what good quality undergarments can actually do for your comfort & sanity.
The old bra drawer was looking a little sad, anyway.
Between these 4 performance apparel pieces & the other Vuori items I own, it’s fair to say that, at 2-ish months postpartum, I’m wearing something Vuori at some point in the day, every day.
A round of applause for Vuori, everybody.
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.
