My genetics being what they are, I was not shocked when my hips did not shrink back to their pre-pregnancy size. Saddened, but not shocked. It is hard for me to find a size/style that makes me feel pretty and confident like I used to. Lets face it- I am a chub. I was much thinner before having my kids. I am still curvy and shapely, just upsized... and with a few extra "curves" I could certainly like to see gone! In need of fashion advice to find clothing that will make me feel good! I am about 5ft 5, and(cant believe I am admitting this)... 190 lbs... ladies, HELP!

Longer top with shorter jacket. Get rid of prebaby clothes. Just say good bye. Accept your womanly curves. I love scarves.

 I am 5' tall and 178.  I wear a lot of trousers and cardigans or jeans and Henley shirts.  Trendy things are a thing of the past, I invest in good classic pieces and get my jeans tailored.

Accessorize, jewelry, shoes, shawls. That always makes one look and feel fabulous!

I'm 5'3 and 165.  I wear lots of jeans and long shirts.  :)

Sadly, jeans are very uncomfy for me after two csections. I am thinking of looking for some maternity pants w a stretchy waist that will not bind on my super sensitive momma belly. :)

I've got no fashion advice...I'm a fashionable mess!! ;) All I wear is jeans and t-shirts.
Your belly won't be sensitive for long, it will go back to normal. I've had 4 sections and I'm back to squeezing into jeans! ;)
