Are you looking for recommendations on what to wear after a csection?
After a csection, you are going to want to wear clothing that is not only comfortable but helps make recovery easier.
Here are 16 clothing choices you can wear postpartum, after a c-section.
1. Loose, loose clothing
Loose. Really loose. You’re going to want clothing that doesn’t rub against your incision and doesn’t have elastic that is too tight on that area.
2. Maternity Clothes
The clothes you wore during pregnancy are perfect for after c/section, too. Even after having the baby, it can take weeks or months to lose the weight, so don’t reach for your pre-pregnancy clothes just yet. Maternity clothes are just what you need.
3. Sweat pants or yoga pants
Both of these items are awesome. In fact, anything which has minimal elastic and doesn’t do up at the front, is great.
4. Avoid pants with buttons
Buttons are one of the worst things you can have after a c/section. You’ll probably want to put away all your jeans for awhile.
These undies are are designed specifically for c/section recovery, comfort and support.
6. Tank Tops
A comfortable tank top or nursing top helps hold your belly in while still being comfortable.
A nightgown is a great clothing choice for the first few days (or weeks) after birth. Loose, flowing and most importantly – not tight on your belly.
A robe or dressing gown is another great choice for keeping comfortable after a c/section.
9. Maxi dresses
Maxi dresses with high princess waist lines (or no waist lines at all) are a great clothing choice if you need something nicer to great visitors in but still maintain comfort.
10. Sports Bras
Sports or nursing bras provide comfort and relief the pressure of swollen breasts.
11. Big slippers
After a c/section, you’re likely to have swollen hands, feet and legs. Big slippers are a good choice for keeping your feet warm without placing too much pressure on them.
12. Flip Flops
Flip flops are the best option if you have to leave the house. Casual and comfortable. And yes, flip flops are safe to wear during pregnancy and postpartum.
If it’s cold, cardigans are easy to put on and button. Far easier to get dressed in than a sweater you need to pull over your head or a bulky coat.
14. Gaucho Pants
Comfortable, stretchy, high waisted and with no front button or zipper, gaucho pants are a great addition to your postpartum wardrobe.
Anything that it tight or restrictive around the belly such as non-maternity leggings should be avoided for the short term.
16. Period panties
In preparation for your postpartum bleeding you may want to get yourself a pair. Whilst you’re period may not come in for some time after giving birth, these comfortable underwear options are great for keeping you dry and fresh.
