dressing the…bumps.

By Jenna.

If you’re anything like me than those first few weeks (okay let’s be honest more like months) after a baby are terribly difficult to get dressed. Nothing fits from your pre-pregnant life or if it does it’s in that cased sausage sort of way. Additionally, you couldn’t pay me a million dollars to wear the five maternity things that fit towards the end and suddenly my chest (okay, jugs) are so enormous you can see them from Jupiter. I also need something that covers my new shape and yet gives easiest access to aforementioned chest. [insert deer in head light emoji’s here.] Basically I’m looking to dream the impossible dream in ways of wardrobe. But all is not lost! I’ve rounded up for you my favorites that I’ve got on rotation that achieve all my wildest aspirations! But don’t stop listening if you’re neither postpartum or nursing, these selections are good for one and all! Meet my friends the tunic and the shirt dress.


I’m not a fashion blogger so these low quality selfies will have to do!

1. This shirt funny enough is neither a tunic or shirt dress but does fit the bill. It hangs in all the right places, is SO SOFT, can be pulled down easily for nursing & covers my new healthy sized…let’s call it backside. It comes in a bunch of different colors of which I now have purchased 4. It’s the absolute best, if you’re nursing or not.

2. This dresssssss. Guys it’s incredible. This picture nor me do it justice. It’s SO pretty and feels so flattering.

3.  This tunic I’ve been in love with for lots of reasons but the most important being is it still allows me to wear my beloved leggings. YOU CAN’T TELL ME THEY AREN’T PANTS BECAUSE I WON’T LISTEN.

4. I promise you I was the first to buy this dress. It’s now circled the blogsphere but for good reason. It is absolutely perfect in EVERY way. It is truly made for any size and it’s like the sisterhood of the magical dress, it looks good on everyone.

That’s just a sampling of the kind of thing I’ve been looking for and maybe you have too! So I saved  you the time, energy and in my case fitting room disgrace and have rounded up the best of the best below! Enjoy.

    These are all really cute, but all so crazy expensive!!! Do you have any budget-friendly suggestions for those of us who can’t spend $60 on a shirt?
