Tips to Confirm an Exchange Is Needed
Many mamas think they need a bigger size than they actually do. We are happy to exchange your Soothe Shirt if you need it! But would hate for you to exchange it for a larger size only to realize you had the right size to begin with. Here are some tips to help prevent this:
Don’t try your Soothe Shirt on while pregnant. This will lead you to think you need a larger size than you really do (even when you are in your first or second trimester). Please wait until your baby is born to try it on.
It may be difficult to get on, this doesn’t mean you have the wrong size. Keep pulling down until the elastic band fits comfortably underneath your breasts. You may even lift your breasts up and over the elastic band. The Soothe Shirt needs to fit snug for the pouch to hold the baby correctly.
Don’t size up to get a bigger pouch. The pouch size is the same across Soothe Shirt sizes. Your baby will gain a bigger pouch as your postpartum tummy shrinks back to your pre-pregnancy size. As your baby grows, you shrink.
So how should it fit? Your Soothe Shirt should fit snug and be tight immediately postpartum.
Here’s how to make sure you have the best size
Your shirt fits well when...
It’s tight to get on, but comfortable once in place and wearing.
You can pull the nursing panels around your breasts to nurse.
Your baby is held in the pouch with their head on your chest above your breasts.
Your shirt is too small when...
The elastic band goes across your bust and won’t fit underneath. Try lifting your breasts above it and then pulling the shirt down.
You can’t fit a nursing panel around your breast to nurse.
It feels uncomfortably tight while wearing.
Your shirt is too big when...
You have to wear a tank or bra under your Soothe Shirt because the v-neck sinks too low when your baby is in the pouch.
The arm holes pull down substantially when your baby is in the pouch.
Your baby’s head sits below your bust while in the pouch. Their head should be between your breasts and close enough to kiss.
