Help - 1 week post birth, no clothes

(6 Posts)
carrotsandpeasifyouplease Wed 01-Jun-11 15:57:34

Please help, I need to buy some (hopefully) intra post birth clothes; I am three stone over what I was but its going quite quickly if the past week is anything to go by. I would wear my maternity clothes but they are all really heavy and its getting really hot where i live now so need some lightweight clothes.

I would like some gap type clothes, ie. casual shorts and loose trousers but there is nothing suitable in gap, nevermind that I have no idea what size I am.
Tops i have ordered from Gap but am stuck for bottoms.

Any suggestions most appreciated.

Also, I cant really do ebay as i'm abroad.

After DD1 was born it was pretty hot and I lived in Linen trousers. Cool and baggy untill I lost the weight.

I'd carry on wearing the maternity jeans for at least 6 weeks. I think that' is consider 'ok' isn't it?!!?!? Wait a few weeks before buying anything.

I'm 3 weeks post birth- have lost 1 1/2 stone of 21/2 put on. Living in leggings/ maternity jeans & one size up from pre pregnancy linen trousers.
In ur climate I think u would be better in dresses something like a strapless with elasticate under bust for comfort. I don't plan to buy any clothes for a few months as know weight will drop gradually.

I know it's such a waste but think yes dresses and skirt best just want to be back to normal !
