When you need to shop for postpartum clothes, ease is the name of the game. To help you with that, we are bringing you a concise list of the best postpartum clothes on Amazon!
Dressing postpartum can be a challenge, both in the physical sense (what fits and what do I wear?!) and also the mental.
You just birthed your beautiful baby, but are probably feeling less than beautiful with sleepless nights and constant feedings and we haven’t even got to the part about your body working on its own healing!
Even months later if your body isn’t where you want it to be, it can be hard to get dressed and feel confident and beautiful. Which are feelings you deserve to have!

We are listing our top picks and favorite nursing bras right here, but we also have a whole post about this, including how to choose your nursing bra size!
Cake Nursing Bras
Corina recommends these Cake brand nursing bras!
Sleeping Bras & Bralettes
Comfortable, no wire, easy access – you can’t get more convenient than that!
Nursing camis are my go-to while still in the hospital or birthing center with my new baby. They are even more comfy than a nursing bra and the best first layer for any outfit!
Note from Corina: I’ve always had severe diastasis (belly muscle separation) as a result of my pregnancies and that results in a belly pooch that makes me look pregnant months after delivery. This following blog posts explains diastasis and tells you about my favorite belly binder!

Otherwise, if you are looking for some more basic shapewear to help you feel more confident postpartum, below are some really good options.
Postpartum & Nursing-Friendly Pajamas & Loungewear
They are quite a few nursing friendly options for pajamas!
Button-up style (long sleeve + pants or short sleeve + shorts), nightgowns with buttons or nightgowns with a crossover.
Pick whatever you think looks most comfy!
Postpartum Lounge Pants
The perk to a good pair of lounge pants is that you can likely wear them all pregnancy long and in postpartum as well!
I got myself a good pair of black joggers to wear postpartum after my third baby and they ended up being one of my favorite loungewear pieces!
Robes are a MUST for postpartum.
They are wonderful to have in the hospital or birthing center once your baby has arrived and they are also great as an easy coverup at home!
Nursing-Friendly Sweatshirts & Hoodies
If you are having a fall or winter baby you will LOVE having a nursing friendly sweatshirt.
Here in the PNW a good hoodie is a must!
Thankfully there are so many cute nursing hoodies out there these days and you can often find many styles.
Solids, prints, half zip, lift up, zippered sides, etc. So many options!
The Best Postpartum Clothes on Amazon
Tops, bottoms, dresses, sweaters — this list contains the best postpartum clothes on Amazon that fit the following two criteria: nursing-friendly AND forgiving on your new body shape!
Never forget, your body just grew and birthed and baby and it is AWESOME. No matter how frustrating it can be.
Postpartum & Nursing Tops
Nursing Tanks & Tees
Get some basic tanks and/or tees in solids or basic stripes (white with black or navy). These will go with everything from lounge pants to jeans to skirts and are easy to dress up with some accessories.
The two waffle knit tees from IWOLLENCE below are two of Corina’s favorite tops! They work for regular wear, maternity, nursing and are very forgiving!
Long Loose Style Tunics
Loose tunic tops are great for hiding engorgement and tummy pooch and covering bum when wearing leggings. And you know you’ll want to be wearing leggings often!😉
The epitome of comfort, get yourself some good leggings in a solid neutral color. Compression styles will help with the tummy pooch.
A step up from leggings, but with a little more structure, grab some jeans with a stretchy waistband. They are infinitely more forgiving and will help you feel put together and “normal”.
If you have a spring or summer baby, you’ll especially love a comfy skirt that will help you stay cool. Pair one of these with a basic tee or tank and you can dress them up or down!
Maternity Jeans and Shorts
Do NOT be afraid to wear your maternity jeans and/or shorts after your baby is born. They will give you the elasticity you need immediately postpartum and you won’t feel like you can only wear sweatpants.
Remember that beautiful baby your body just birthed. Give yourself some grace, mama!
Forgiving Completer Pieces for Postpartum
Another great choice for spring and summer, a kimono can be easily paired with even just a basic tee or tank and it shows a fresh, feminine look.
Thankfully, you don’t have to buy specific cardigans for nursing or postpartum, but if you are wanting to get a new one look for a loose, relaxed style cardigan so it’s extra forgiving. If you get one that is longer, you can also easily pair it with leggings!
Nope, not for rain, for style! A knit poncho or wrap can be a very chic completer piece to add to your fall or winter wardrobe. Some of them are all one piece, some button or fasten at one shoulder.
Nursing Friendly Dresses
I love the variety of dresses that are made nursing friendly these days. There’s been a big improvement on this in the last 5 or so years!
