  • I was one of the lucky moms who ended up weighing less after my baby was born than I did before I got pregnant. (I lost 10 pounds) So my body is basically the same.

    I still wear the same things. I like Eddie Bauer and L.L. Bean things and also shop J.C. Penney.
    I really don't care about super expensive designer brands.

  • My style is the is my budget and time that is tight. So I don't spend money on the clothes that I would like and I don't have enough time to spend on makeup and hair everyday. I will usually opt for comfortable (and easily washed) clothes now.

  • LOL--Mine did for the above reason:-) Now that the kids are all grown--they are trying to give me some fashion advice:-) They don't believe there was a time I wore other stuff and not just sweatshirts and wrangler jeans;-)

  • i wear nothing but huge clothes now to try and hide everything. Before i wore cute sexy things now i am just to fat to wear anything sexy or cute.

  • I dress more girly. I put makeup on and do my hair now. There is something about being a mom that makes me want to look like a woman.

  • I loved my pregnant body ( I wore regular jeans my whole pregnancy)...still miss it, lol. I had a much fuller butt and thighs (BUT I GOT TO KEEP MY BOOBS! LOL). Now they're (butt and thighs) smaller than they were before I think, lol. So jeans shopping is even MORE it's basically impossible for me to find jeans I'm happy with.

    But, I still basically wear the same stuff. Yea, I'm a Mom, but I like to portray that I'm still young and like to have fun. I still wear low rise jeans and cute tops...but I think I still have a Mom feel to my style too.

  • I dress very Feminine and Girly ,I'm not too old and not too young, So I try to stay with the styles in my age range ,I also wear stuff I see other moms wearing around town .I dont want to be out of style, I have 4 girls they always tell me if it looks good or bad and believe me they know .So I take the older ones shopping with me and they tell me yes or no, Teens have a good sense of style Not what I would wear but they know if its sleazy looking or pretty They tell me .LOL
