I'm feeling a bit dowdy after 16 months of breastfeeding all hours of the day and night & showing no signs of stopping Can anyone help style me please?

I feel like I can't remember when I wore something nice day to day - I'm still living in slim fit jeans, BF vest tops, cardigans and comfy shoes, all of which have seen better days & need replacing, but what with?! I'm only 32 & I need to rediscover feeling nice about how I look sad

I am 5'11, slim size 10, small boobs, bad legs & ankles which I want to keep covered, big feet likewise - no heels but I can do a low wedge at a push as long as they're comfy.

I like blues, whites, creams, mint, pastels in general. Floral too. I don't think I can carry off floaty / baggy clothes, my natural frump shows through too much... Fitted is definitely more my thing. Maybe patterned trousers and a plain top would be good?

I just don't have time with DD to try things on to find out what looks nice & no one to take her so I can go alone so I just have no idea what there is out there and what might look nice. I'd hoped I might be able to collectively outsource my problems here smile Please help! Thank you so much.

Go get a bra fitting and start from there. Everything will look better. And now you can wear nice bras again! Hooray!

Are you still breastfeeding? If so still daytime or just at night? ie: does wardrobe need to accommodate this?

Ooh yes bras! I had just discovered how to fit them properly (went from 36A to 32C!) before being pregnant. I am still BF but it's only mornings and evenings and any time I venture perilously near the special chair at home so for out and about I don't need to wear BF friendly clothes.

Non-jeans trousers are always the trickiest for me to find - I wondered about these ones:^_w_wcBB
