Fashionable and comfy summer outfits for your post-baby bod

Hot momma

Feeling hot after having a baby can be a struggle. After all, your body just went through a lot. You might not be back at your pre-baby weight just yet, but there's no reason you can't feel cute. These comfy outfits take that post-baby belly into account while still being on-trend.

Little blossom

Brighten your mood with this outfit that has positive, bright vibes. Right now, loose-fitting dresses are your best friend, and the shift dress is no exception. This body-skimming (but not bodycon) dress (6KS.com, $28) shows a sense of your general shape without showing off all the goods. Plus, it's a super-adorable print. If you feel like your legs aren't ready to see that summer sunlight yet, a simple pair of black leggings (BodyCentral.com, $7) will make this outfit extra modest. Accessorize with simple mint flats (SteveMadden.com, $40) and stud mint earrings (ShopBop.com, $48), then turn the outfit youthful with a cute combo handbag/backpack (ModCloth.com, $68).

Yacht to know

This outfit is so yacht-ready. The army-green midi skirt (TopShop.com, $90) will emphasize the smallest part of your waist while hanging loose over any problem areas. When paired with a loose striped chiffon blouse, the vibe is totally "on-the-water." Plus, this striped top is airy and comfortable (DorothyPerkins.com, $35). Finish off the look with sandal flats (ASOS.com, $48), a large straw bag (SperryTopSider.com, $90) and this uber-modern necklace channeling Cleopatra (TopShop.com, $28).

Mod you look

You're a modern momma, and this outfit is a throwback to the '60s mod era. This loose-fitting checkered shift dress (AllyFashion.com, $25) is sleek and sexy without being revealing. Paired with comfy black-and-white sandals (Swell.com, $75), vintage-inspired wayfarer glasses (Amazon.com, $10) and on-trend triangle earrings (American Apparel, $18), this outfit is a winner when you want to stand out. Don't forget the statement bag. We chose this one in yellow (CharlesKeith.com, $93) because of its playful personality.

Decked out

For a summery date night out with your guy, you'll want a refreshing look. This mint dress is all about being girly and cute (ModCloth.com, $63) without being too revealing. Sure it's short, but adding ultra-light pink tights would keep it fresh and comfortable. Pair the dress with these nude flats with a twist (ModCloth.com, $33), adorable ship's helm earrings (SperryTopSider.com, $24) and a mango purse for a burst of color (AldoShoes.com, $45).

Beach Betty

Just because you don't feel bikini-ready yet doesn't mean you can't look hot at the beach. And really, is there anything more comfortable than a maxi dress? This easy-to-wear floral number (ModCloth.com, $50) is flattering in all the right places. When you toss on a movie star-worthy straw hat (Gap, $40), simple and versatile summer sandals (JCPenney.com, $30), a cute crossbody bag (Zappos.com, $40) and print-popping turquoise earrings (ShopSosie.com, $12), you're bound to be turning heads.
