Postpartum Lounge Sets
Postpartum Lounge Sets
They say there’s nothing like napping with a baby. That is… if you can get the baby to sleep. And after hours of trying, of course, that nap is going to feel amazing. In your dreams, you’re literally just sitting down in a quiet house. That’s how tired you...

Postpartum baby care takes tons of energy and care, so you should have the best loungewear to do it. Put a little TLC into yourself and get some pieces that will help you move when you need to (always) and relax when you can (at some point).
From leggings and robes to wrap tops and jumpers, there is no shortage of options when it comes to your postpartum wardrobe. Keep in mind that your body is in recovery, and you should honor that journey with some of the highest quality lounge sets.
Starting at the Top
Time spent nursing has officially replaced your candy game app obsession. Celebrate this big (albeit circumstantial) victory by getting into some cozy postpartum nursing tops. If you’re going to be spending so much time feeding your baby that you abandon your high score on your favorite game, you might as well nurse in style.
Our current favorite postpartum top has to be the Nursing Henley Top. Henleys are a fashion look you love, so we wanted to make sure that you never have to go without this silhouette. Designed to evoke the iconic skate park style while stitched at the perfect curve for an easy nursing sesh, it’s basically a maternity staple.
If you’d rather rep those minimalism vibes, you can also try the long sleeve nursing tee. Simple enough, right? A t-shirt with an extra layer of fabric to hide a slit for your baby’s midday snack. Office appropriate, runway appropriate. Yes, please.
If you’re looking for a little more comfort and coziness, it’s time to talk nursing sweatshirts. Look, it doesn’t matter the temperature; a sweatshirt is more than warmth. A sweatshirt is a feeling the way chicken noodle soup is a feeling.
Keep the feeling alive while keeping your baby alive with some accessible nursing sweatshirts that prioritize both. If you find yourself nursing frequently, you might want to choose the Early Days Nursing Shirt. We are all about a dramatic deep V-neck that serves looks and purpose.
If you’ve got a little more time and control, you can try out a side-access nursing sweatshirt — a more classic style with some secret guest access for Baby.
The Best Bottoms
Postpartum can mean different things for different people, but a common side effect is swollen feet and extremities. If your bottom half is feeling a little spent, you might want to spend a little extra on the right pants to move you from couch to bed.
The best way to give yourself wiggle room and still feel good about how you look is to invest in a pair of jersey nesting pants. Wearing jersey fabric feels like the first night spent in bed at a five-star hotel. Our Nesting Pants are designed with a drop-crotch and natural flow that give you room to breathe, too.
If you’re gearing back up to be in and out of the house, consider a pair of Indoor Outdoor Joggers to kick your postpartum life into gear. Designed in French terry to keep skin friction to a minimum, you can spend all day in these bad boys without being reminded that your body just pushed out a whole baby.
Depending on where you are in your postpartum recovery, you might want to think about adding at least one last item to that postpartum wardrobe: Over Under Leggings. These leggings can transition from high-waisted to low-waisted faster than a toddler running after the ice cream truck.
Let’s remember what you just did. You just carried and birthed a brand new little miracle in the span of nine months. We don’t know about you, but we still can’t get over how insanely cool that is. Not only did you make a human, but you stayed away from coffee and wine. Literally — incredible.
It’s time to give yourself a pat on the back and a new pair of pants. And a new nursing shirt. And you might as well throw in that sweatshirt while you’re at it. You deserve the utmost comfort and convenience as you care for your new baby and rebuild your postpartum strength.
