Where do I shop after having two kids??

I had two pregnancies almost back to back, and just finished breastfeeding my youngest (14 months) so I'm ready to be done with maternity and nursing tops!! My problem is I have no idea where to shop now that my body is so different. My hips are wider and my belly still has a bulge like I'm about five months pregnant.I was a size 4/6 before I became pregnant with my first. Now I'm about a 10, but I'm still fairly small or at least medium, other than a big belly. I weigh just under 130 and am 5' 1". I shop junior styles. My favorite stores were places like Urban Outfitters and Forever 21. But now, I can't seem to find anything flattering!! I just don't want to have to wear mom clothes because I'm a mom. Any tips on where to shop clothing?

Well before I had my angel I was a size 8 I got up to a size 17 now with diet and chasssing her around back to a 12! Coupons and yard sales are my BFF!

I've had three children and I get my body back by working out and eating right. I've always shopped at places like Ann Taylor, LOFT, J. Crew, and Ralph Lauren. I work full time so I always have to wear clothes a bit on the formal side.

I learned the hard way, not to shop for what you fit into right this moment. After my pregnancy, I went to the local goodwill and found decent clothes until I got back to where I wanted to be bodywise. Once, I got to where I wanted to be, then I spent the time looking at my favorite stores and spending the money on things I knew I would fit into for longer than just a few months or even weeks. Hope this helps, I know it helped me!
