Take a shower and then slip on something comfortable that you didn't wear to bed the night before (or at least something that doesn't look like you wore it to bed). This jersey knit jumpsuit could do just the trick, providing a roomy fit without looking like pajamas or sweatpants. It even has a hidden zipper in the bust for breastfeeding ease.
