So my sassy 10 year old daughter would probably 100% disagree with the title of this post. Mainly because she thinks she is too cool and mom is lame. She’s constantly telling me I shouldn’t wear a bikini or crop tops. However moms can totally wear crop tops too! Maybe 5 years ago I would have disagreed with you because as a mom I am not a stranger to body insecurities. I am not overweight or anything but HELL, I birthed 2 kids so far and shit just doesn’t look the same anymore. Ya’ll feel me?
On top of that I had major abdominal surgery last fall which left me several scars as well. They are small and barely noticeable, but still there. So here’s the simple solution…No matter your age or size…..Mom’s you CAN wear crop tops too. If you have any tummy insecurities, go for a high-waisted pair of pants. Wearing a cute outfit can do amazing things for your self-esteem too. Personally when I look crummy, I feel crummy. But when I throw on a cute outfit or even jeans and a tee and a little makeup, I feel 100% better and when I feel better, I tend to be a happier better mom in turn.
These cute harem style pants I am wearing are perfection. They cover the belly button and are nice and loose so they are comfortable to wear. I got them from H&M in size XS but they are almost sold out. There are 2 other colors still available in all sizes however i did find another pair on Shop Bop that are almost identical. BTW, when I see harem pants, I see the perfect outfit for binging on margs and tacos…just sayin’! You would also pair your favorite crop tops with high-waisted jeans that really hold you in. Topshop has amazing jeans that suck you in and are very flattering too.
OUTFIT DETAILS & SIZING:
For reference, I’m 5’1″ & under 100 lbs. I normally wear the following sizes: Shoes (6), Tops (XS), Jeans (24/00)
So I’m just curious to know what my fellow moms think? Do you deal with body insecurities after becoming a mom or are you even more confident now? Do you think moms can rock crop tops or should we cover up?
