Had a baby TWO months ago but due to poor eating and exercise habbits still have a huge baby bump (plan on working on this right after the holidays).
Can someone please help me find some Yom tov/shabbat clothing that will be flattering? I have wide hips and a big tush so nothing clingy. I'm looking for loose and flowy styles
baggy stuff that will just hide it all. I'm not trying to look like a model. Thankss!!!!

In the exact same predicament. Also 2 months PP. I’ll be following this.
But do be kinder to yourself -2 months PP it’s normal not to have managed to lose weight. Just caring for the baby is a full time job. (Plus rest of your family, kids / job / house -wtvr ur circumstances are). I haven’t had a minute to exercise or cook diet foods. Talking to myself here as well.

If you are not nursing (which can be annoying in these dresses), check out:
Maya's place
Mimu maxi
The frock NYC
Yakira bella
Zara

Thanks. I guess part of it is me comparing my body to last time (this is my second). I started off the pregnancy weighing a lot less, didn't gain much and by the bris I was already back in non-maternity. By 2 months as long as my stomach wasn't bloated it looked completely flat. So it's hard for me to adjust to this. Especially looking at other moms with littles... I only seem to notice the skinny ones. (Lol so hopefully no one is paying attention to my stomach bulge either...).
And yes I have SO been stress eating. Need to start up with my walking again which I know will help me feel better and eat better.
Still need some clothing that will fit! Hope we both find some stuff.

Yeah I'm nursing. I guess tops and skirts would be more practical.

A lot of these places have loose tops. See the "cascade" top on mimumaxi for example.
Zara, Mango, Asos may also have.

Someone gave me the suggestion of buying ‘shirt dresses’ they’re very in now and a more boxy shape, plus perfect for nursing. Haven’t actually got any yet, but I saw a bunch online at H&M, zara and TJmaxx.

no luck :-( unfortunately for me crop tops are the style now...
not loving the cascade top. The square top on the mimumaxi site could possibly work except they only have it in really pale colors which wont work because with baby+ toddler it's hard to stay clean... Can anyone find something similar to that but in a darker color somewhere else? Doesn't have to be that exact shirt just something....
