I have a special relationship with Vuori.
I first fell in love with the brand early in my pregnancy with Eleanor (I was, in fact, pregnant when I published this post) – and I wore their dreamy knits and stretchy performance apparel until well into my third trimester. So it made sense that, as soon as I concluded my two weeks of lying in and resumed dressing my postpartum body in something other than mesh undies and men’s undershirts, I turned to my beloved Vuori once again.
We’ve talked about it before here on The Mom Edit, but somehow everything Vuori makes is both extremely comfortable and shockingly flattering, and I’m not sure I could really ask for anything more in this season of dressing.
From Workout To Streetwear, This New Mama Wears Vuori On Repeat
In fact, since the outfits in this post arrived, they’ve yet to see the inside of my closet; rather, they’ve been either on my body, in the wash, or folded in a not-so-tidy heap on our bedroom bench, queued up for their next wear. We’re talking heavy rotation.
And really, it’s no mystery why. The ohhhhhsosoft fabric. The just-body-conscious-enough silhouettes.
Between these four pieces and the other Vuori items that I already own, it’s fair to say that, at twoish months postpartum, I’m wearing something Vuori at some point in the day, every day. They’re absolutely ideal for everything from Pilates to lounging, and from living room dance parties to coast trail walks with the babe. And it’s not like I make a habit of wearing these pieces to bed and then straight to morning drop-off the next day, buuuuuut it may have happened a time (or…three?), and no one was the wiser.
The Vuori Dream Team For My Postpartum Workout: Vuori Halo Tank & Halo Vintage Short In Cactus Heather
Halo Performance Crop in Cactus // I love the fit of Vuori’s sports bras (the Yosemite, in particular, is my fave), so it’s not surprising that this crop is equally flawless, and perfect for both my morning walks with the babe and my naptime Pilates sessions (when naptime is actually happening, that is. We’re in a bit of a pickle with daytime sleeps at the moment, but I digress…)
It’s supportive without being bulky or stiff, and the DreamKnit Fabric (the same fabric used on their famously soft joggers) is incredibly comfortable against the skin, even when temps pick up. The bra top features removable liners, and, in true Vuori fashion, the straps are really pretty on. (I also appreciate that, while they stay in place without issue during activity, the straps are also easy to slip down for quick breastfeeding.) Wearing a S here, which I find fits exactly as advertised following their size guide.
Halo Vintage Short in Cactus // I’m just starting to come around to wearing shorts again, and I was shocked at how flattering these were when I pulled them on. Flattering enough, in fact, that I’m eagerly awaiting the next warm day so I have an excuse to slip them on again. (Our Coastside summers are notoriously gray.) Buttery soft, with a nice wide waistband that stays flat and doesn’t dig. And somehow, these shorts are substantial enough to hug and support curves while still feeling light and unrestrictive. I didn’t find myself constantly having to readjust them or tug them down, either. A+ all around. Wearing a S.
The Vuori Joggers I Can’t Stop Wearing (To Drop-Off…And, Uhhh…Everywhere Else)
Performance Jogger in Cactus // Dang it, the hype was real again with these, the joggers that earned Vuori’s cult following. How is it that a pair of joggers can be this flattering? And this freaking soft? I’m not sure what sorcery is involved in the engineering of something as seemingly simple as, well, pants…but whatever is it, it’s good. I could go on and on about how the fit is just slim enough, how the angle of the taper somehow manages to flatter and elongate, how that freakishly soft DreamKnit fabric clings without creeping, but it’s something not fully understood until you’re slipping into them yourself.
And in the Cactus Heather, they feel almost retro. (I love the vintage vibes and perennial sunniness of the Flax Heather color, too, but there are more than 15 colors to choose from, so you really can’t go wrong). It’s no exaggeration when I say I can’t stop myself from reaching for these first with every clean wash. They’re just impossibly perfect. Wearing a S.
Sunnyside Hoodie in Turmeric // I love Vuori’s Halo Essential Hoodie when you want something trim and light (it’s my favorite long-sleeve layer for running or Pilates), but I’m so glad they came out with a hoodie with more streetwear appeal. This sweatshirt is so much more special than it looks at first blush. The raglan sleeves soften the shoulders and give it a vintage vibe; the ribbing detail lends just enough texture. And the proportions are perfection, managing to be stylishly oversized without looking sloppy. Best yet might be the Turmeric color, which is so rich and warm, and surprisingly wearable. It contrasts playfully with all of Vuori’s other colors, too – and happens to look almost chic paired with denim. Wearing a S.

Here’s to what’s been a truly comfy — and surprisingly flattering — fourth trimester, friends. Mesh undies notwithstanding. 😉
Thank you so much to Vuori and ShopStyle Collective for sponsoring this post. I could practically live in Vuori pieces and Vuori pieces, alone during this postpartum period – they’re so soft, comfortable and somehow so very flattering. I can’t stop collecting them.
