hey everybody Jordan page with millennial moms here as you all know I just had a baby and you guys I have to admit I'm still kind of struggling with my postpartum body not big enough for maternity clothes not small enough for normal clothes and it's just a big mess yeah I went shopping recently and found a ton of clothes that happened to work for my postpartum body so I thought I'd do a video to show you exactly what I bought and why and give you a few tips along the way but before we get into any of the good stuff don't forget to subscribe give this video a big thumbs up yeah yeah so for this shopping haul I actually ended up buying everything at Ross but I'm going to give you tips so that you can use those tips to shop wherever you want to shop to find the clothes that you love best okay let's get on with it every postpartum body is different in my trouble areas are random stuff on my shirt I love handles and my front that's where I'm self-conscious and as you can see this outfit really emphasizes all the wrong things let's be on this year let's start with what I'm wearing on my legs these are some cutoff jeans and they're comfortable but I'm wedged in here pretty tight so instead I found myself some inexpensive distressed jeans the distress really flatters the front of my legs and they're super stretchy and higher waisted which is helping to smooth out my problem areas I always wear a stretchy t-shirt under anything that I'm wearing the ads length covers lumps and bumps and smooths me out which is nice it is hotter than Hades around here so I'm focusing on summer clothes this tank is $9.99 which is a steal and it's just so flowy it hides all my lumps and bumps and the t-shirt under it adds length which is great I love this feminine collared tank top it's so sheer and light and at $7.99 I mean hello one thing I realized is once I put it on the girls were a little tight in the button area so by wearing a t-shirt under it it allowed me to unbutton Ratt where the girls are having trouble to offer a better fit can I get an amen for this tank this is one of my favorites how cute is that and comes with a necklace hello I like how it keeps its form and it doesn't hug my front or my back it just kind of billows but in a flattering way yeah girl dance it dance it had those lumps twerk it work it uh-huh you look good postpartum whoop whoop on the hanger this one looked a little cropped so it was a bit of a risk but I ended up really liking it because with the long sleeves and the light fabric it really could be worn any time of year that's really got that peace love and harmony bad you know to me oh there's Bob I say hi Baba hello oh yeah that's on back oops ah that's better okay what I love about this shirt is the fabric it's lightweight it's flattering and it doesn't wrinkle which is nice with breastfeeding and just you know being a mom here's a shirt that did not end up working out it looks kind of cute on the rack but really ultimately it just hugs in all the wrong places and was no bueno I love shirts and takes that are neutral but with a little design on the front because they look really cute even under sweaters and this one I love the crochet detail and I liked it it's longer in the back so it has my booty and all the lumps I don't like here is proof you do not have to pay much for cute clothes I got this shirt at a yard sale believe it or not I love that it's flowy switches around like a princess and it's cute colors there's another example of what not to do I said no to this tank top because it really just made me look whiter and thicker and was not very flattering one of my tricks is to add lightweight layers so you take a simple t-shirt and throw a cute lightweight poncho like this over it suddenly it Jazz's it up and it also hides things in the back that you want hit it and seriously you cannot be $5.99 likewise you could use something like this crocheted fringe vest it's only $12.99 so it's not much of an investment but you throw it over anything and it not only hides stuff but it makes you look more put together a little more fashionable and you can shake shake shake shake tape leggings for president guys I don't know it's basically like wearing butter on your legs throw a long tunic a long tank on top of leggings and you can move all day long here's another shirt that I got to go over leggings $12.99 super long kind of chic makes you feel like you're walking the runway but more than anything it's lightweight and hides everything so there you go hopefully some of those tips will help you combat the lumps and bumps and all sorts of fun things that we just love about having a baby don't forget to subscribe give this video a thumbs up we've got new videos Monday through Saturday I do videos every other Wednesday so I'll see you guys soon so Tata see you later and seen
