Question for you...how do you dress as a mom in your 20s or 30s? And what in your mind is not alright and alright to wear? I have a lot of confusion over this the past couple years I am a little more out there then most people and I dont mean by flaunting body parts or anything, just in my taste of clothes and makeup.

Hmmm...in response to Katrina, I think that dressing in your own personal style will teach kids to be comfortable with who they are instead of conforming. Sure they may be embarrassed, but they get over it. They're going to be embarrassed by you no matter what you do anyway. ;)

The only thing that I think is a "no no" is middle age women sharing clothes with their teenage daughters. Dress your age, but don't compromise your style and personality!

Honey, just wear what makes you happy. If you aren't happy and comfortable, then your kids won't be happy. The mama sets the tone for the rest of the family.

I dress in what's comfortable for me. I, personally, am not comfortable in short skirts and tight tops, but that doesn't mean I will think "less" of someone who does. I like dark clothing, heels, dramatic hair (just went black from having it pink), and accentuating my breasts without completely baring them. I still wear my hair in pigtails, double braids, princess Leah buns, or anything else I can think up.

Mainly, I dress for my body type, though. Unfortunatley, there's not a whole lot of options for an overweight goth. Halloween is honestly the only time that I can dress comfortably (for me) without sticking out (except my makeup is done nicely and not overdone).

Be who you are. The fact that you're a mom doesn't take away from the fact that you are still YOU.

Clothing is a form of expression wear whatever you want its no one elses buisness how you choose to dress .

You know what a lot of young mums problem is ( im a young mum so dont jump up and down and start this young V old debate ) they try SO hard to please everyone else because they are so worried about being judged when really we should all relax be happy and comfortable in who we are , if you are doing a good job then dont worry about what other people think , people who judge based on appearance are nothing more than shallow people who are not worth the time , individuality and all the differences in the world is what makes it interesting and beautiful , being a mother means sacrificing a lot of things our own personality and indiviuality is NOT one of them .

Yes but some clevage is fine to show as well. Pends where you are going. And being single a bit of the freedom they had before is perfectly fine when keeping your eyes open for a "someone else"

What I try to remember when choosing what to wear is that as a parent, I lead by example. I believe people should dress the way they want to, it's freedom of expression and allows us to be individuals. However, I don't feel that it is appropriate for anyone, especially mommies, to have clevage hanging out all over the place or shorts up to their butt crack. Form fitting tops and a nice pair of jeans is all anyone really needs, to be sexy and sophisticated. Wear what you want to wear, just be tasteful =).

Nicole Castelan I would just say wear what you did before IF You feel comfortable as long as your not showing every inch of your skin your fine you want to set a good example for your kids or kid! I dont feel comfortable in ANYTHING lol i have 2 kids and i gained A LOT of weight with my first and with y second not as much but i still need to loose about 30pounds but i wear jeans and tshirts but at home i wear my pjs all day lol!

I feel you! I wear what most ppl would think of me as weird, I have stuff that might be thought of as to sexy, more body showing. But only wear those when I am out with friends. Most of the time to run to the store I don't dress up, but I have to admit since I am a single mom and might end up running into someone my X knows I tend to put make up on and make sure my hair is ok before I go to the store. I don't want them thinking I let myself go. WHen I am at home I am mainly in house clothes, PJs as I don't like to mess up work clothes and out clothes.
I look at it as, if it makes you feel good, then HELL go for it!!!! :)

I am 22 years old and the mother of a 4 month old. I weighed 170 lbs when I got pregnant and ended up losing 22 lbs after my daughter was born. I use to dress a little out there before I got pregnant. I figure if you have the body for it wear it. I'm a lot more conservative in what I wear now. I'm a mom and I'm raising a girl. I dress sexy but classy. Dress in what makes you comfortable...

Everybody dresses to their taste and comfort. To do any differently would not be true to yourself no matter what age we are. Being yourself will give your kids the confidence to be themselves no matter how different they may be.

I just dress in what I feel comfortable in. Mainly it is jeans or black pants with a nice top (and in winter a jacket or cardigan) with some nice flat shoes on. I am a pretty casual sort of a person and always have been. If I am at home I will generally just wear my trackies coz they are comfy. I only wear foundation to cover up my bags under my eyes and my acne (from stress lol) and a bit of lip gloss to prevent my lips going dry and cracking. But that is it and I am happy to go out like that. My daughter (who is nearly 6) often tells me I look pretty or she like my top :) Hopefully she will still be complimenting me when she is a teenager lol.

My style of dress hasn't changed too much since becoming a mum... as long as I feel comfortable in my clothes, I'm happy. I like to take pride in my appearance, particularly when I go out, so I do like to make an effort...which is getting easier now that I'm closer to my pre-pregnancy weight and I can fit my old clothes again. But I also love to wear my "casuals" when we're at home and if we're not planning on going out, I'll stay in my pjs all day too! I don't think your style of dress should necessarily change just because you've had a baby, but I do believe that modest is best =) that's just my opinion though, and other people will have different standards of dress.

I would call my style sophisticated chic, with a splash of sexy!



Now that my feet are coming back to there original size (I had very bad swelling after my son was born 7mos ago) im back in my 2-4inch heels, or my wedges….when im off to the store, or mall, or coffee…(but if im just running somewhere real quick I throw on my flip flops)



I am a 26year old stay at home mother, so there are days where im in my tank-top and cardigan, with sum leggings…

Even if I know im not going anywhere, I try to look nice or decent, comb my hair, put sum mascara on…otherwise I can go for days looking “Not up to par” and I want my husband to remember why he got with me…yeah he loves me for me, but most men are visual, and he is one of them.



I don’t think as a mother you should wear very low cut shirts around your kids friends or have your thong showing when you bend over….that’s it.

I think you should wear what makes you comfy, what you like.

I'm having the same kinds of issues with my attire as I can't seem to figure out who I am as a mother, therefore I can't really find my style as a mother. I use to have a flare for fashion but now due to lack of time and changes in my body post-partum I can't seem to get comfortable in anything I wear and trying to dress to leave the house becomes dreadful, anyone have any style advice?

Personally at home I'm pretty much in cute comfy PJ's, but when I go out for work etc, I dress conservative and professional. I do it in a way that is still cute though so I don't look like a 90 year old woman if you know what I am saying. I don't dress up as much as I used to, such as doing my make-up and luckily my hair looks cute without much effort, but it still feels good to occasionally dress up. I say go with whatever your style is, with moderation (wouldn't recommend dressing like a hooker or a grungy bum in front of the kids LOL) =)

I wear whatever I used to before I had Logan. Not that I was ever outrageously dressed as an adult. I think it's not okay to not wear shoes in public, dirty clothes, no shirt, ripped clothes etc.

I am a 24 yr old mom of 4 and I dress in sweatpants with a tshirt and my ugg boots most of the time! I am a stay at home mom and also do daycare out of my home. So being comfortable all day is my goal! My kids will joke with me and ask why I always wear my boots but for me it's about being comfy! I like jeans and cute tops too but that's only on a day that I'll be goin to a store or school for some reason or another! It's about being able to be a mom and get down with your children on the ground or color or paint. Your not gonna be too comfy in a skirt or short top. My kids love pickin out their own clothes and ask me for advice so obviously I'm not embarrasing them! :)

If you dont feel comfortable in what your wearing it can make you very self conscious. I think as long as your not setting a bad example for your kids then wear what you want. Kids take in everything their parents do and will copy.

well ill tell ya, when i was 18, thats exactly what i did. i wore the tightest jeans i could squeeze my @$$ into and tops to match. back then i also had a 'virgin' body(pre-pregnancy 'perfection' i like to call it now) where the butt was firm, the boobs were perky, the tummy flat, so hell yeah i showed it off. but let me tell ya, after i had my first born, i was instantly changed. I felt like it wasnt right to dress like a hormone raging teen anymore, and so follwed looser fitting jeans, not to the point where i swam in them, but they weren't painted on either. As for showing off any cleavage, well that all got shot to hell so i cover that part up the best i can! lol
Everyone has their own sense of style, and what they like or dont like to wear. Things should at least be a little different once kids come along. Im not saying a full 180 here, but maybe make the skirt a little longer, and pull the top down(or up, whichever is the case lol) As for make up, well, as long as you're not sporting a Mimi Bobek (from the drew carey show, if you've seen it) look, then who cares about that? i wear it everyday..some days its just powder and a little mascara, other days its foundation, liner, shadow, volumizing mascara, i'd put on falsies too if i could! lol As long as you're not portraying yourself in a negative way toward others, whether around your kids or not, then keep doing what you're doing. doesn't sound to me like you'd be the next Crotch-shot centrefold in The National Enquirer so I wouldnt worry :)

i still wear some low cut shirts.. nothing showing the girls too much but not a turtle neck either.. if you can pull off wearing snug fitting tops than do it.. i was a big fan of short shorts before my son.. and even though i can pull em off.. i only wear them around the house mostly.. the way i see it .. your are an adult and as long as your child is taken care of, than wear what ever it is you feel comfortable in.

The guys who look at you and drool or whistle at you when you wear reveling clothing are the ones who think you just gonna be an easy piece of a$$ and NOTHING ELSE so why would you want to flaunt everything i mean have some more respect for yourself! And if your 15 year old daughter starts to dress the same way and some 22 yr old guy trys to have sex with her then what are you gonna say? I bet you money your little girl will say well MOM you dressed that way why cant i thats not fair!!! I agree with Jenn Black you can STILL be sexy and not having all of your body exposed!

i think you should dress how you want pertaining to your style as long as you are not lookin trashy because now you have examples to set heck i'm usually in jeans and my white tees lol but sometimes i like to have the tight fitted clothes so i know i can still look good and not just look like a mom not that theres shame in looking like a mom i just mean we all need to kno we still got it
so i say if you got it flaunt it just not tooo much.be classy hot not trashy hottt

I think what most ladies need to learn is that you can still dress sexy without having to show everything off. It's a matter of respecting yourself and having others respect you as well. I have never understood why anyone would want to wear extremely revealing clothes at any point in time unless it's like Katie said, "in the privacy of my bedroom with my husband". I'm not one who wants some random drooling at the sight of me, in fact I find that a bit demeaning. Sure, be proud if you look great after having kids, but not everyone else needs or wants to see it.

what if someone took a picture of you looking like that and years down the road your daughter started dressing like that on a daily basis and when you talked to her about it her response is well if you did it why can't i?? Thats all i'm getting at... Yea dressing up to go to the bar is awesome and i agree making guys drool is SOOOOO much fun... but just think of the teenage years to come... thats all i'm sayin :)

everyone keeps saying being a role model for their kids. hello mine are 5 and 4 mnths. their role models are diego or spiderman off tv and her teddy bear or blanky. i dress however i want when i go "out" cuz thats the point of going out is to feel like you look good. so i am going to show off what i got. hooker boots, bra showing tank with the boobs. thats the point of my going out once a month with my bf. go to the bar with some friends and have fun and have all the dudes look at us and make our men happy that all the men in the bar want us and they know they are going home with us. lol. if that makes me a bad parent for dressing that way when i go "out" then i guess so but i will wear whatever i want and have fun doing so. now on a regular day i wear jeans and a tight tshirt to get my son from school. now dont even start talking about my look when i go on the bike. wow i look HOTT..i dont care what the others think, if you feel good then go for whatever look you want. just because your a mom doesnt mean you have to stop dressing not like one

Personally, I used to wear tighter fitting clothes before I had my kids. Now, I'm more into the looser clothes since I don't feel comfortable showing everything off. I feel that as a Mom, it's important to dress modestly. Wear what you feel comfortable in but I don't think that extremely short skirts, very low cut tops and plastered on makeup is appropriate. We need to be role models for our kids.

I used to dress very very provocativley... and i still do but only in the privacy of my bedroom with my husband. I think you need to set a good example for your child and dress the way you would like to see them dressed at your age... of course they are going to have their own taste in fashion but seriously... would you wanna see your little girl dressed skimpy with her thong showing and a micro mini with a tube top that barely covers anything or would you want her to be dressed somewhat conservatively?? For me getting dressed up is a skirt that goes to my knees or a little above a nice loose flowing tank top or shirt. Back in the day though it would have been a skin tight cleavage boosting i-can-see-your-bra-through-that-shirt t-shirt and a mini skirt with hooker boots. Its mostly what you feel comfortable wearing but i think mothers should be just a bit more modest. :) I'm definately not saying cover yourself like a nun showing a little skin is definately ok :)

Well, I am 25 and have 3 kids....I def can relate to this question! I think that it all depends on what you are doing at that moment.I usually wear jeans with some sort of cute top. I really could care less what anyone thinks about me though. I'm sure most of you can relate when I say my body isn't the same as it used to be! However, if I am going out with my husband I will dress a lil more provacative. It is hard to wear a low cut shirt when you are scooping up toddlers though! I say if you got it, flaunt it! We only have our one life with our one body and i just dont see the point of wasting our time worrying about what others think. As long as you're taking care of your babies and trying your best at life, then that's all that matters! :)

i dress in whatever i am comfy in, usually jeans and a nice top, i have found some awesome tops that are easy to BF in and still look hot from op shops, i've never been a fan of expensive clothes, simply 'coz i've found they wear out a lot faster, and when you can get near new (or occasionally new) clothes for a fraction of the price why not? i haven't been a fan of make-up since high-school when it seemed to be the social norm, but now i can't be bothered with the stuff, my complexion is thanking me for it, as both my sister in law's ask what i do to keep my skin so clear (have maybe 1 pimple a year now since i stopped wearing make-up) i'm only 22, well 23 on monday...but one thing i can't stand is seeing women dressed skanky with the mini skirt and the too small top and the makeup plastered 6 inches thick, pushing a pram....natural glow is all you need (something to hide the bags under your eyes :P )

Dress in what makes you feel good. and makes you happy.

I wear jeans and a tshirt when i go out and when im at home i stay in pjs all day lol im a stay at home mom i have a 3yr old and a 4month old so when im at home i dont care what i look like but when i go out i fix my hair put on make up but i like the natural look when it comes to makeup noting crazy!

With 2 kids running around, I barely have time to shower some days, but I mostly wear t-shirts and jeans or shorts. When I have to go somewhere, I try to dress a little nicer, but it's usually ponytails and no makeup for me. I admire those moms that look like they just stepped out of a catalog, but unless I'm going somewhere important, I just can't get myself together that much on a normal day. Just be yourself and be comfortable. As long as you don't look like you're going to hit the club or worse yet go work in it when you take the kids out, you should be fine.

[deleted account]

Being a mom doesn't affect the way I dress at all! I dress however I feel like on that particular day. I'm a little more conservative at work, I usually wear at least a little makeup, I don't always fix my hair, I have no problem running errands in yoga pants and a tank top, but when I go out to a ladies night or a date with my hubby, I will more than likely be wearing a tight dress or a miniskirt. I have gotten nothing but compliments - my non-mommy friends tell me I'm the hottest mama they know, lol :)

Wear what makes you happy. I myself wear jammies or sweats when I'm home but when we go out of the house its jeans, and a fairly nice tshirt or dressshirt and definitely makeup..You don't want to look like you just rolled out of bed or that you were up 6 times that night. You want to feel good not feel sloppy or frumpy. Even as a mom, there are days when you want to look good and when you do get out of the house you will want to dress up a little bit :) Hope that helps :)

Im the jeans and some what dressy shirt usually no makeup and hair pulled back ( my son loves to pull hair) sometimes i will wear a little makeup but most of the time im rushing to get dressed and get on with my day. it gets hard trying to please others with my clothes when i have a baby that needs me so the world will just have to deal with it

[deleted account]

As long as words on shirts aren't inappropriate then who cares. I like being covered, but I am also a gamer so I have a lot of shirts that talk about that. I am also an avid con goer so I cosplay and wear wigs. I just make sure that I am properly covered at all times. I am actually planning on dying my hair purple... I've wanted to for years and haven't been able to because of work.

I dress the same way I always have, I've kept my facial piercings, I just got rid of my purple hair. I guess you could call me alternitive but I've always been this way why change cause I'm a mom my daughter loves me just the way I am so I don't care. I think some girls need to draw a line though, I see mothers dressed like they're trying to pick up guys while walking around with their kids. That's where I think dressing should change if there's more skin than clothing you missed the "put some clothes on your a mother" memo

I dont think makeup should really be a factor, Im a mom of 2, almost 30, what I dont like to see is muffin tops hangin out, cleavage out there, and women that where pants so low that when they sit down u see tramp stamps and plumbers crack LOL. especially in places where kids are gonna be relatively present like school functions especially!! Your aloud as a mom to have hairstyle/ makeup style and even clothes style as you choose, just as long as the clothes are decent I dont think theres a problem

My wardrobe varies so much, its hard to say. How I dress really depends on where I'm going. Usually for day to day errands and school I will dress comfortably but still nice, like a pair of jeans and a shirt. It's getting colder here in Canada so its pretty much sweater weather all the time now. If I go to work, its usually track pants and a t-shirt. I work with kids who have behavioural/emotional problems and there are times when we have to physically restrain them, so I try to wear comfy clothes at all times just in case. Nothing is worse than being in a 20 minute restraint with your jeans falling down your ass, because its not like you can let go to pull them up. If I'm going out to the bar I tend to dress a little slutty, because I'm still young and I still have a decent looking body and I figure I should enjoy it while I can. :)

I have already commented on this post but I had a revelation (I guess you could call it) yesterday. When your child tells you that you need to change is when you have an issue! For the most part I try to dress conservatively and keep things under wraps. Now yesterday I wore a shirt that I thought was in no way revealing but it is still rather large on me...I bent over to pick something up and my guy asked me if I was going to change before we left!? I was like what!? WHY!? and my son turned to me and said, "Oh Mommy, you look so beautiful today!" I gave my guy the look and started to think I had the sweetest little boy in the world (which I do...I mean he IS my child so of course I am going to see my child first) then my son said, "well you need to change...that...well that boob thing...that boob thing isn't working...you can see them!" LMAO! OMG I was SO embarassed! I hurried quickly to my room and changed into a t-shirt and threw that shirt in to the garage sale stuff!! I believe if your child says something there is a problem! Now that is my new opinion and I am sticking with it!



@Loureen~ I have to absolutly agree...I read your post after I posted this so I am adding it! But you are so right to probably a large number of young mothers. I had my son at 17 and I was extremely concerned about the way people would look at me it took me time to realize that I could be who ever I wanted and still be a mom...the way I dressed didn't make me. I started dressing in my norm (pre baby) again around the time my son was a year and my family would try to shame the way I dressed and that really took it's toll on me and eventually I tried to find myself yet again but I just don't know where to begin to have the same attitude about myself that I had before. Well also I am pregnant and it isn't easy to find maternity clothing that is first of all not lower cut then anything I wore when I was single and out or not see through or not excessively low cut and see through and still cute! But yet again I don't want to have to worry about what my son's friends are going to think and what the other parents on the PTA board are going to think. It is so easy to be a young mother and worry about what everyone else thinks of you already b/c you ARE a young mom...I direct most of my opinion toward teen mothers b/c was in fact a teen when I had my son and to me that is still my idea of "young" mothers. I am now 22 and my son is 5 and I still worry about it...I even worry about the way my son is dressed b/c my son is the product of teenage ?? whatever and so I try to make sure he is well groomed and in nicer clothing not from wal mart b/c I feel like that is what people expect from someone in my situation. I feel like everyone expects failure and for my son to not have as good of a life b/c I had him so young. I don't mean to put anyone down who does infact buy their child(ren)'s clothing at Wal-mart...it just makes me feel guilty b/c I feel like people expect that my child will never have better b/c I had him so young...I don't think there is anything wrong with a person doing that but I also live in yuppiville where everyone has brand new cars and their children have name brand everything which causes a lot more of MY guilt!!

Well normally I wear jeans and a nice top, but I like to wear dresses also. I don't think there is a mom rule to fashion. I think they are the same for all woman, Basically what I do is imagine what I think a hooker would wear and NOT wear any of those items, lol

i like my jeans a little tight, but not to tight. I dont like the so called mom jeans i am only 21 so i dont like them low rise but when i bend over my butt is not showing, but not to high either. i wear make up some times some times i dont, make up is just a little extera when i have time. i think you should dress your age weither or not your a mom or not. pluse heals are good i think. cant stay in tennies all the time.

me, i am a t shirt and jeans mom. no makeup. don't got time in a day for that. i do it every so aftion for my husbend but that it. i guess i just don't get way some mom wear really tight clothes. that show so much. when it comes to stuff like that i think of strich marks and lose skin from kids. but that doesn't mean i am going to treat them different. i guess i just do me and thats what others should do.

I'm 23.. And overweight a bit.. But I still like looking nice.. When my daughter was first born I ran around in Sweats and PJ's.. I figured my husband would get tired of seeing me sloppy put together. But he didn't. Now I normally wear my jeans and a nice shirt.. I wear make up sometimes.. I am guilty of showing off my tata's.. I was a DD before getting pregnant now I am DDD.. SO those baby's show anyways.. I could wear a turtle neck and still show some clevage.. LOL

wear whatever you like just do it in good taste! i am 22 and 7 & 1/2 mos pregnant with my 3rd kid and i wore my bikini all summer.. people said they hated me cuz i could get away with that :) but i made sure to get a top big enough to cover my very much larger breasts (not an easy task!). i wear the "in" clothes for girls my age to some extent, i just make sure they are kid friendly too. one of my favorite things to do is raid my 16 yr old sisters closet when i visit my parents cuz she always dresses really cute and we are the same size. but basically, wear whats comfy and cute and don't think you have to dress in a bag just cuz you're a mom!

I have struggled with this problem since I was pregnant. Ultimately I decided to wear what I like and that is comfortable as long as when I bend down (which I do frequently having a two year old) you can't see my goodies (too much cleavage or bottom) because they're for my husband only. As for makeup I have always gone for the more natural look. But my finger and toe nails are always painted whimsical colors and occasionally have funky designs (they're real so not too long because I don't want to accidentally scratch my son).

I dress how I want to but that doesn't mean I don't think "Oh my God what was she thinking - does she have a mirror in her house" when I see other people wearing ridiculous clothes lol!
