    hi....I thought id ask you guys.
    I need some advice regarding clothes to wear after baby, i realise everyone differs, but what sort of clothes did you wear? how long before you were back in to jeans???
    I was going to go to primark today and get a few pairs of joggy bottoms (a whole £4 each!! :shock: bargin!!) do you think ill need quite a few pairs? i really cant face wearing my maternity clothes again, or will i need to?
    my OH bought me some gorgeous jeans for xmas in a 14 to wear for after baby, i can get them on but there is about a six " gap to be able to zip them. im hoping they'll fit for summer.
    Any tips or advice more than welcome!!

    Right after I had Ava, I wore alot of sweatpants. I managed to fit into some of my pre-preggo clothes, but I went up a size up in jeans thanks to my hips.

    Are you planning on breastfeeding? If so you'll need lots of quite baggy tops so you can get baby's head under there!

    I bought loads of long sleeved t-shirt type ones from tesco for £2 each!

    Also comfy trousers are a must!

    Yeah was planning on breast feeding, So ill put some big tee's on shopping list then too. or may just wear OH's for a while!
    Tops will be more of a problem i think cos im normally a 16 and got big boobs, which im guessing will only get bigger! plus my tummy was hideous even before baby, god knows how big it'll be after!
    Thanks for the advice

    Make sure your trousers are stretchy and not too tight or it will be painful 'down there' when you bend down, that's what i found

    I am still wearing my maternity clothes although they are too big for me now!!! But I cannot get into my pre-pregnancy clothes at all :evil: Treid to buy some size 16 trousers as I was a 14 but they were too small too, they fit up to the belly and then I can not do them up :roll:

    So I have decided not to buy any clothes until i can fit in my prepregnancy clothes!!!!!!!!

    Hi Hels...

    Three and a half weeks later and my pre pregnancy jeans ALMOST close...I'm using a hair bobbin to extend the waist slightly just like I did at 15/16 weeks pregnant. I am nursing however and they say that helps you get your shape back more quickly.

    Having said that, though, my maternity jeans are still much in evidence, as they were easier on my tummy and my wound site which is still infected. *sigh* AND I'm going to have to take the loose and flowing option for Naomi's Christening on Sunday.

    I can only fit in one pair of prepreg jeans, at a push, and my belly hangs over still :? yuk.

    I wish I could like in jogpants, OH would call me a chav though. Had to throw out so many pairs of trousers due to my new found motherly hips and have gone up a size in bottoms.

    The comfier the trousers the better hun, I wore my maternity trews for a while afterwards still as I didn't like anything too tight around that area of my tummy.
