3 Loungewear Outfit Ideas for New Moms

As new moms, we all want to look great and feel confident about ourselves even if our bodies have changed quite drastically recently. It’s not as easy as it seems though and some of us don’t even bother with trying to look good until we get used to the changes that happened after pregnancy and childbirth. Instead of rushing into things, try choosing comfortable loungewear outfits instead. From dresses, jumpsuits, and sets, you’re sure to find something you like from our list. 

Laidback style

Now that you’ve had a baby it’s time to go home and spend what may be (depending on how much your baby needs you) six weeks or more with your new bundle of joy before heading back to work. While there are lots of things on your mind during these early days, let’s take a moment to focus on style. During those first six weeks (or however long you stay at home), you need comfortable clothing that allows you full range of motion so that you can care for your child without being distracted by anything else—especially restrictive clothing. It should also make you feel great about yourself as a new mom such as these cute house dresses.

Mommy and me style

Wearing mommy and me outfits from The Spunky Stork can be a fun way to bond with your new baby. If you are just going out to run a few errands, consider wearing matching or coordinating outfits. It’s cute and it’s practical. Your child will let you know when they need a diaper change by crying. And because you wear similar clothes, there is no confusion about who they are trying to call attention to. Just be sure not to go so far as matching headbands; that might look silly once you leave home. Matching hats are always cute and a great way to cover up that week-old hair you’ve been trying to find time to wash. In the winter, matching beanies in the same color are cute and easy to find such as the color black.  

Sophisticated Style

Sometimes, comfort is an underrated priority for new moms. Whether you’re about to have a baby or have already welcomed him or her into your life, postpartum comfortable clothing is a must-have and it should be stylish and sophisticated. Loungewear outfits are not only trendy but they help ease some of your pain by giving you that extra bit of support during recovery. Here are three jewelry accessories that will help you look sophisticated while also complimenting your comfortable lounging options.

  2. Your wedding ring and band
  3. Diamond studs

The last step to feeling good and looking great as a new mom is wearing clothes that make you feel like you. This means looking your best while also feeling postpartum comfortable. You don’t have to go full-on sweatpants and baggy shirts, but finding outfits that fit well and flatter your new body type will ensure that you look as confident as possible, even when things are feeling less than ideal. And it doesn’t matter if you’re headed to bed or out with friends — every outfit in our post can work on any occasion!
