How is your fashion now that the babies are here?
Are you fitting into pre-pregnancy clothes, did you buy a new wardrobe?

Am wearing prepregnancy clothes though some are a little bit loose(as of this morning I am 40lbs down from where I was prepregnancy). I am also wearing a lot of spagetti strap which I didnt really do before because its a little easier to nurse than a t shirt.

Oh lord- I'm a hot mess most of the time! I mostly fit in my pre-preg clothes, but I have nowhere to go in them, so I'm in stretched out yoga pants most days. My jeans are still tight at my belly, so I change out of them asap if I wear them out.

Otherwise I wear the same like 6 shirts over and over- two nursing shirts and the rest tanks. I'm a real fashionista. (I do wear makeup like 60%+ of days!)

I think I'm going to need new summer bottoms, but I have no money or desire to shop now AND I want to see if my gut goes down a little once I start moving more going back to work.

Argh. I can wear my pre-preg shirts. Pants...the ones I wore after I had Grace are way too big. The ones I wore just before getting pregnant with Anna (when I was at my smallest) are too small. I'm somewhere in between, and I only have a few pairs in that "in between" size. I don't want to buy new ones! So I'm just wearing what I have. LOL! Most days if I'm home, though, I wear yoga pants and a nursing tank haha.

I'm in my "larger" jeans from before I had Katie, but the ones from before I got pregnant with Xavier are still too small. Like Kimberly, I'm kind of in-between. My shirts are okay, but most of them show my muffin top. When I'm at home, I stick to jeans or shorts and t-shirts mainly. Everyone I see tells me I look great, but I still have about 20 pounds to go, and I think they're obligated to tell new moms that!

I can fit into most of my prepreg clothes, but I don't feel confident to wear most of them. This time last year I was training for a triathlon, so I was very fit and not flabby. Once I get a bit fitter, I'll have to invest in some more appropriate "mommy" shorts and tops that aren't as clingy around my stomach. Living in central Texas, shorts and tank tops are a necessity for summer. It's funny how last year I was in the best shape of my life and now, well, you know.

I have no idea how I'm going to find a bathing suit that I'll feel comfortable in. Any recommendations for a swim top for DD boobs that need support?

Most of my prepreg clothes are too big. I'm under my pre pregnancy weight and have a flatter tummy now than I did before. I haven't bought any new clothes but pulled out some that I had put away because they were too small last year and fit now.

I moved to one piece suits after having kids. It was just more comfortable for my ego. My boobs are small though, so I can't speak from experience there. I will say my mom has gigantic boobs and she has a lot of luck with Lands End swimwear. I bought one (maybe two?) of my one pieces from LL Bean, but I can go to the "mothership" store in Freeport up the road to try them on.

God I hate trying on bathing suits. I have two that I believe still fit and I will wear them until they fall apart if it means avoiding shopping for another one for years to come.

I stay home with the kids so yoga pants it is! Also since this is my third I've got a few in between things to wear for when I do have to look decent. I've got several skirts and a couple larger jeans. Honestly the grocery store and or my friends we play date with don't care what in wearing ; )

Not good. Feeling quite frumpy. I can fit into my pre-pregnancy, pre-weight loss stuff, but I don't have many good items for spring or summer. So I'm pretty limited at the moment.

Ditto on the Land's End bathing suits for big boobs! That's all I've been able to wear for years.

I am pretty much wearing flimsy tshirts & sweat pants. I've been at home 99% of the time though. I wasn't wearing maternity jeans when pregnant, just my regular ones with a belly band. Now I still need the belly band to hold my pants up. I haven't gone through my closet to see what will fit, but nothing looks right so far.
~Thank you AlexAiden Mommy for this beautiful siggy~
