Perhaps we needn't mention clothing fit or figure issues for a new mother.

Sofia looked very nice. Just the fact that she was out of the house is fabulous, much less something like this, just a few days after giving birth to her first child. I applaud her.

Neither can I because as those of us who have given birth know it is a struggle to just attend to the simplest of tasks less than two week post-partum.

That outfit is unflattering, the shade of white which is a strong white is hard to pull off, especially in a heavy fabric like hers.

Nice dress, fits very well and good bodice interest. Don't like the hat, looks a bit silly as the facinators do, imo

Ugh two fascinators and both ugly Hers is better than Vic's but that isn't saying much.

Her dress mixed feelings. Nice detailing up top, adds interest. But I agree fabric seems a bit heavy and not sure the shade of white was too flattering right now on her.

But she is looking happy and healthy for a woman who gave birth less than a month ago.

Love the shoes

But while a punch of color is great, not sure that punch worked with a day time look. Would look amazing as the punch with a little black dress.

Unfortunately, the shoes were a total miss. Kind of like scrabbling in the wardrobe for something you know is there but can't find it and end up grabbing something wildly inappropriate because you're now running late.

The fascinator looks droopy and it looks like her curls are tired and drooping too. The colour of her dress is positively pallid and makes her look drained. The dress itself looks a little loose and (courtesy of the weight of the material) it looks kind of droopy too.

She's a trooper for being back at work but looks like she needs to be using what little down time new mums get to put her feet up.

The fuchsia pumps would have worked better for an evening event, and with a white suit it's too off-putting. No jewelry except her wedding set and the watch.

And Bunte was not too kind about Sofia's ensemble:

My compliments on appearing so soon after giving birth. Its interesting outfit but it makes upper body look huge and those curls on Sofia's shoulders are not helping either (hair up and this would have been much better look!).
Like her shoes but not teamed with beige facinator and white dress.

I applaud Princess Sofia (and CP Victoria) for attending some events while on maternity leave because they really don't have to and are attending anyway.

Ignoring the hot pink pumps and loose curls, Sofia's white luncheon outfit and cocktail hat are all right. Hair up/tied back with neutral or grey heels would be better. The pink pumps needed another pink item (hat, belt or purse) to bring the white + hot pink combination together.
