What are you ladies doing for clothes these days?

4.5 weeks pp I've been able to fit into most of my pre pregnancy t shirts for a couple of weeks now, but I made the mistake of trying on a pair of my regular jeans. I think they might have fit if my hips weren't so spread out still!! So maternity jeans and yoga pants it still is!! Although the maternity jeans are getting to be a bit saggy.

As of right now I'm not too worried - with this crappy weather I don't really leave the house and when I do I've got a warm coat on. Hopefully when I go back to work next month my clothes will fit better!

I'm back in regular clothes. However, I also wore my regular clothes until the very end. (I used a Bella band for my pants and wore my larger, stretchy shirts.) The only exception to this, was the last few weeks when I put on so much water weight that I couldn't get ANYthing on, including slippers. For those 2 weeks I wore DF's sweat pants and a few huge shirts we have around here. I suffered when we had to go somewhere where I actually needed to be in regular pants. I wore them completely unbutton until we got there because there was no way I was spending money on maternity pants (that probably wouldn't fit anyway!) for my last 2 weeks. I had only gained 10-15 lbs up until 30 weeks when I went on bedrest. The last 30-35 came after that, and I swear, at least 20 of it was from all the swelling. When my "normal" legs and feet came back, I was shocked at how much they had actually swelled... seriously unrecognizable.

So, I've given you one long story to say I'm in regular clothes. The only thing I can't wear are my more form fitting shirts, as my stomach is still flabby loose skin.

Maternity pants here too! I also tried on jeans... big mistake! I'm hoping after a few weeks of getting back into the grove I'll be into my old jeans. I'm only 9 pounds away from pp weight. Pounds and inches are a different story. I'm going to wait before I buy new clothes and the pickings in my closet are slim! I'm also waiting to buy new bras. They say you lose weight in your breasts first but m anybody doesn't usually follow that rule. I'm wearing my pp bra size now and I would LOVE to lose even 1 cup size!

Maternity bottoms and larger leggings! I can fit into my old tee shirts but I don't like how most of my tips look because of my belly :/ I do fit into my fat pants but...they're fat pants lol. My belly is just ridiculous and stretched out and my hips have definitely spread. It's a joyous aftermath but the cute kid does make it worthwhile

oh my... my bra size (aside from my tummy) is the most annoying aspect of my postpartum body. Dont get me wrong my breasts look great now but Im 2 cup sizes bigger than pre-pregnancy and I know they arent going to stay this size so I DO NOT want to spend lots of money on bras. I hate that I have to pay for expensive nursing bras when I dont know how long im going to be this size.

I'm still wearing maternity shirts, but maternity pants are too saggy, so I'm wearing an old pair of larger pants. My pre-pregnancy pants don't fit yet. I can button them, but I cannot sit down with them buttoned. Oh, and yoga pants, of course!

Someone bought me a shawl for Christmas, so instead of a winter coat I'm mostly wearing that since I'm always wearing LO when I'm out, and the shawl wraps around us both. So cozy.

Fot the 1st week I was wearing my maternity leggings and a t-shirt. Shirtly after I fit back into my pre-pregnancy sweats so I have been in them ever since. Sweat pants and t-shirts. I haven't really left the house since she has been born except the pedi, my OB/GYN and my grandmother's house once.

I'm back into 3 pairs of my pants that were generally a little loose before getting pregnant and wearing regular shirts. I still have 13lbs to lose to get back to prepregnancy weight.

I can wear my shirts but not my jeans yet. I have some maternity jeans I wear when I go somewhere that matters but other than that I wear stretchy pants. I can't wait to get the ok to exercise again!

I'm mostly wearing normal yoga pants. My pre-preg jeans fit, with a little bit of muffin top, but I'm also almost 20lbs below pre-preg weight. For shirts, mostly regular tshirts so far. I haven't really tried on any of my more fitted tops though...

I am seriously jealous of all you ladies back in regular clothes! I gained a horrendous amount of weight this time, and am... gulp... fifty pounds over pre-pregnancy weight. I went to Savers and bought a pair of fat pants, since I know that much weight isn't coming off in a month or two. I'm really regretting donating all my fat clothes the last time I lost weight! Lol

I have finally started losing the extra baby weight thru healthier eating and excersize. I'm still wearing a mix of stuff- mostly pre pregnancy jeans and leggings, and tops. The maternity stuff doesn't fit me right, even though some of my pre Preg tops are a little snug in the belly still. I'm a work in progress

I can fit into two of my prepregnancy jeans, they were loose before and now fit or are a little snug. I wear nursing tops and tanks and yoga pants, but when I go out where yoga pants wouldnt be appropriate, I have a few jeans that fit now. I'm 7.5 weeks out though and two weeks ago my jeans gave me muffin top. It's a work in progress.

Yep I'm jealous of you all too! I'm still in my maternity clothes & non maternity sweat pants. And a few old tshirts.

BUT in my defense I didn't really have too many non maternity clothes before I got pregnant. I was still wearing them from having DS1 because I kept telling myself not to buy regualr clothes cause you'll lose the weight but then I never did and then got pregnant. The 1 pair of non maternity jeans I did have fit but they are sooooo worn out and ended up ripping in the crotch so I threw them out. I don't want to waste money on non maternity clothes but I'm going to buy a couple pairs of jeans and a few shirts to last me til I lose alot of weight because i'm tired of wearing maternity clothes!
