Seems like just a couple of weeks ago (well, actually it was!) that I was showing off my belly, the bigger the better! Now I'm right back to my first trimester apple hiding tricks. I am really lucky that the weight seems to be coming off faster than I thought, but I do still have to use the right clothes to help disguise the postpartum tum-tum. I thought these two outfits worked particularly well for the art of concealment, what do you think?

1-3. My Laundry by Shelli Segal dress--my version of the Nine West magic dress (actually MaryK found a Nine West dress for me on eBay, so I may be getting a real Magic Dress of my own soon!) I wore this to a work meeting I had to attend...the first time they'd seen me at the office since I went on leave a month ago. They all commented that I looked like nothing had happened and I hadn't been pregnant at all. And they're guys, so I don't think they'd say that just to be nice!

4-6. For proof it's not all just me...see how much flatter my belly looks in the gathered waist dress above, compared to this non-ruched Banana Republic dress that I posted in my K/R yesterday:

7-10. Squeezing back into my favorite Paige white jeans! Had to leave the buttons undone and use a BeBand to hold it closed, but of the moms at school couldn't believe I was wearing pants already two weeks out. And this banded tunic top is great for skimming over the belly. I have had to switch gears abruptly from body con to body skimming silhouettes. Amazing what a difference the right clothes will make, though!
