Can you be a mom and still look sexy?

I'm just asking, because I have had people tell me that once women become mothers, they should dress more conservative by wearing loose-fitting clothes and bottoms [pants, shorts, dresses, and skirts] that comes down to your knees or longer. I feel as mothers can wear shorts that comes down to your mid-thigh without looking trashy. What do you think cafemoms?

  • hellll no. i am not giving up my daisy dukes, booty shorts, bikinis and little tank tops just because i'm a mom, i'm still young and still have a rockin bod and i am not about to just become a nun. ANYONE can look sexy but no one should look slutty, no matter your age or whether you're a parent

  • I think you should dress how you're comfortable in what makes you feel good and confident. I don't wear miniskirts and thigh-high boots, but I don't wear baggy pants or shorts that cover my knees either. I'm not going to feel 'frumpy' just because I have kids.

  • A mom can look sexy in jeans, t-shirts, cute dresses, cute skirts, etc.

  • These mothers say that because they haven't lost the baby fat they gained when they were pregnant. I make it a point to look good every day. I wear tight clothes but not to revealing. I want people to see that you can still look hot after having kids. I think you shouldn't dress like skank but dressing like your a hot mama is important to me. I cant stand when I see moms who dress sloppy and hide themselves. Why does everything have to go out the window when you become a mom?

  • A woman can look sexy without looking trashy. I don't think mid thigh shorts/skirts are trashy.

  • The only people who should dress conservatively are conservative people.  I don't believe that you should dress differently just because you're a mom.

  • You can wear whatever you want. Just cuse you are mom doesn't mean you have to dress like a nun. I think you should dress how you feel comfortable. If you want to wear clothes that barely cover anything or if you want to wear a giant sheet. I don't care as long as you are comfortable and feel good.
