Shhh you see that red dress I'm wearing in that photo it’s maternity wear!
There seems to be a taboo over maternity wear i.e.. it should not be worn after coming out of hospital with baby in your arms. However, as they are so comfortable and we are no doubt very tired from sleepless nights these pieces often become our go to items after giving birth to. Many celebrities hire fitness experts to get them looking trim and svelte after having a little one but for many people it’s not so easy to get back into shape over night but more a case of months.
Now that my daughter is 8 months and we have started going to nursery groups. I've found myself looking at my new figure and considering what my go to wardrobe would look like. My daughter has got her own little wardrobe, with go to items in view so why don’t I do that for myself? About 30 items should do it so that we can get to the nursery groups on time and I'm not trying to wrack my baby brain over what to wear and never got there.
This winter I aim to ditch most of my maternity wear too. The jeans can be put away in case I have another little one, but as for the tops and the odd dress I'm considering keeping them out a little longer. Do people really know that their prime purpose is as maternity wear? Does it really matter? While I get to know my new figure and celebrate it, I will be looking at what works for me now I have a new role in my life.
What are you doing this Winter to celebrate being you?
