Â Â Finding the perfect warm weather outfit can be incredibly difficult post-partum, partially because you have other things to think about (like diapers and drool) and also because motherhood mobility is a crucial factor. Although a mini skirt and tube topÂ may have worked before, you need something that holds up (or won’t fall down) when chasing after your children.
Â Â If you prefer classic items (but don’t want to feel frumpy), try finding a loose, spring dress with plenty of structure (sturdy straps, a knee-length skirt and a secure bust line). Mother Jessica Alba (above)Â chooses a feminine dress that shows off her thinner areas (in her case, a nipped in waist line and exposed upper body), but still lets her play with her daughter at the park. Try the Satin & Crochet Dress from Heritage 1981, and pair it with thin sandals or dainty flats.Â If warm weather dresses aren’t your style, try carefully choosing a romper (made exclusively for adults) in a light, loose fabric, like Kate Hudson (at top). (For more ideas on pulling off a romper, click here). Try an item like the Romper-Style Jumpsuit (if you don’t want to showÂ that much leg) or the more daring Beaded Trim Jumpsuit (which only the extremely body confidant should attempt).
