I feel clueless

I feel so clueless and upset. I had a c section 8 weeks ago and just feel lost. I was a pear shaped 10-12 with no boobs and a totally flat stomach. I never really had a “style”, but just wore what I knew would suit my shape.

None of my clothes suit me anymore or fit. I’m now a 12-14. I’ve got an overhang, stretch marks everywhere, super wonky boobs and massive love handles so I’m finding it so hard to find jumpers and tops that look nice. I bought a pair of the M&S jeggings today, but my love handle area looks massive. I think I need some long tops that skim over, but my arms have developed bingo wings and I can’t find tops that fit.

I feel like I’ve lost myself. Please help.

I'm the same and have moved from being a jeans person to wearing knit dresses/tunics with black tights or leggings and ankle boots.

I find not having a waistband pinching into me makes me feel less fat.

I dunno what happened to my arms. Suddenly they don't fit in half of my jumpers.

Could you share some links of things that have worked? I’m looking on ASOS and all of the models are thinner than I have ever been in my life. I can’t tell what they’ll look like. I might just order a couple of jersey dresses.

Something like this?

I feel like I still have a shape with waist but the bottom half is thicker so fit and flare stuff suits me.

Also I recommend going to colour me beautiful or similar and finding out which colours flatter you. It can really make a difference
