I feel like fashion posts are going to be so much better on my blog now that you guys know what my body really looks like underneath my clothes. That sounds weird when I write it out. Ha! For those of you who don’t know, I shared photos of myself in a bikini last week because I wanted to be open and honest about what my postpartum body really looks like. So the reason I feel like fashion is going to be more fun is because now when I say an outfit hides my tummy, you guys know I really mean it!
So the outfit options I’m sharing on here today are really great for camouflaging your tummy! And the core pieces of every outfit I’m showing are from Chicwish. Whenever I blog about more than one look in a single blog posts I usually try to make most of the items from the same place, that way if you go to purchase something you don’t have to buy the items from multiple sites. Plus I just love Chicwish! I get a bunch of my clothes from them because they just have really pretty, unique and affordable pieces that are great quality too! In fact, a couple of the outfits in this post are looks I’ve already shared on my blog before, but they’re just so great that I’m sharing them again!
Before I get started, let me first say, I don’t want this to be misinterpreted as me being ashamed of my tummy. I told you guys this and I’ll say it again, I’m proud of my squishy belly! It’s my motherhood badge of honor! But let’s face it, when I get dressed in the morning I want to look and feel my best and putting on clothes where my tummy is camouflaged is going to make me feel better throughout the day. I know it’s kind of weird to say you’re proud of something and then in the next sentence say you want to hide it. It’s kind of hard for me to explain in words but I’m sure you guys understand what I’m trying to say.
Let’s start with this white lace dress! I love it because it hides my stomach at the perfect point so that it shows off my waist line,but then the way the fabric poofs out after my waist line and hides my tummy underneath. And it’s just absolutely gorgeous! I feel like the detail of the lace is incredible and it looks like a super expensive dress. But it’s totally not! It’s under $80 and really good quality. The only thing is, you can’t wear a bra with it. But the bodice is constructed really well so it provided me with enough support to wear it to a luncheon. I think this dress would be absolutely gorgeous to wear to a rehearsal dinner if you’re getting married or even a bridal shower. Or if you have any fun summer all white parties coming up, this would be a showstopper dress for sure!
My light blue shirt is flattering for the tummy area for obvious reasons. It’s very loose fitting around the midsection so it’s great for camouflaging anything in that area. And I love the dusty blue color. It matches my front door which obviously is a color I love, otherwise I wouldn’t have painted my front door that color. The top also has a really pretty pattern on it that I don’t know how to describe other than say it’s a texture woven into the shirt. I think it looks really expensive but this top is only $39! And that’s a really good price for something with so much detail.
The picture below is of me wearing this tunic at only a couple weeks postpartum. Trust me when I say there’s a lot going on underneath this top. But you’d never know! In fact, I wore this exact type a bunch when I was pregnant as well. So it’s not only great for maternity but it’s great well after as well. I feel like I’ll probably wear this tunic to Thanksgiving dinner this year. Ha!
I think I was about 3 months pregnant with Riley in the photo below, but nobody knew it even though I was totally showing already. This dress hid my bump perfectly and will hide my pudgy belly now! It’s not available in the print I’m wearing below anymore, but I am linking the exact dress in a print that’s perfect for summer!
And I will end with a few more items from the site that I absolutely love and I feel would be good for postpartum or just for some tummy coverage in general.
Hope you guys found this post helpful! xoxo
