As a mom...do you dress the same as you did before having kids?

Posted by   + Show Post

I am a SAHM to my two boys...one being a baby. I get up every morning, take a shower, fix my hair and put on makeup. But I always wear a t-shirt and athletic shorts because I need to be comfortable so that I can chase my preschooler. I also wear t-shirts and shorts because I don't want to wear my "good" clothes because I tend to get messy taking care of my baby.

My mom keeps telling me that I need to dress better. I told her that once my baby is not as messy, I'll go back to dressing nicer. But for now, I am okay with the way that I dress. I still fix my hair, put on makeup and perfume, so I'm not just letting myself go.

But it got me wondering, how many moms still dress the same as before they had kids. I know some who do, but most of the moms I know, are definitely more relaxed in clothing style and prefer comfort over looks.

Would you say that you dress the same as before you had kids or has your clothing style changed since becoming a mom?

I pretty much dress the same. Hair and makeup everyday. Manis and pedis every 2 weeks. And I "dress" daily. I'm in to fashion and I like dressing well. I just wouldn't feel my best in a t shirt and sneakers. That's for the gym.

Pretty much. But I have always been a t-shirt and jeans kind of person. Never anything revealing, even before kids. The only thing that has changed are the sizes are bigger....lol.

I pretty much dress the same as I always have but then again my dd is almost 10. I'd rather wear athletic shorts and a tee like you all day long. I still wear my hair up and do my eye makeup but that's about it, alothugh I have been finding myself wanting to dress up more lately.

Yes and no.  I pretty much dress the same as I did pre-baby, but I HAVE relaxed a little more.  I always had a more classic look with trendy pieces thrown in.  I still dress the same way, but I find that I sometimes have a tendency to wear more flats and tops that are easier to maintain.  I still get up and get ready in the morning and do my hair and make-up like I did prior to having DD.  Personally, I think it's important to maintain yourself after having a child because it helps to make us feel more ourselves and more put together.

I dress the same. I've never really been one for daily hair and makeup, so I still don't unless I'm going somewhere special. The only difference is I can't walk around the house naked anymore lol
