Ok, here's the deal. My LO is 4 months old today. At this point, I've lost a decent amount of the pregnancy weight (not through active trying, I'm ashamed to say - I had mastitis and it made me really sick), but I'm still about 20 pounds above where I want to be. Don't get me wrong, I'd wreck my body again six ways from Sunday for my daughter, I'd just like to have it be a little smaller.
I have a wedding next weekend, but pretty much all of my pre-pregnancy dresses are not flattering with even a little bit of tummy pudge. I wore them during pregnancy because it's fine if my baby bump was emphasized, but I don't want to emphasize a bump without a baby in it. I know the wedding isn't about me, and no one will really look. But I'll still feel gross.
I'm going to try to raid the clearance racks at Target tomorrow, but does anyone have suggestions for types of dresses that will help cover my belly? If it helps, I also have wide shoulders and hips, and used to be a size 6 pre-baby.
Thanks, ladies! I found one at Target. The waistline and lace hide the tummy a bit, and the high/low makes my legs look longer. Since the wedding we're attending isn't fancy, it is perfect. Sorry, can't make the link clickable - I'm on mobile.
