A while back I remember overhearing my son and his friend talking while I was getting dressed to go out with friends. When I walked into the living-room with thigh high leather boots on, jeans and a fitted Bob Marley t-shirt, I heard my son’s friend say, “Your mother doesn’t dress like a mother”. To which my son replied, “How exactly is a mother supposed to dress?” I couldn’t help but to laugh and think to myself that I’m definitely raising him right.
But there are people out there who feel that a mother should dress a certain way. Yesterday, MediaTakeOut published a photo of Blac Chyna showing up to a club in a see-through shirt. The grammatically incorrect post blasted Chyna for dressing provocatively since she’s a mother.
Of course Chyna’s bff, Amber Rose, had a lot to say about the post on MediaTakeOut:
It seems as though no matter how women dress, people have so much to say. There’s no right or wrong way to dress as a mother. If I wanted to go outside in some tatted looking Kanye West sweatpants, people would say something. If I wear a skin-tight body contouring dress, people would say something. So basically, you’re damned if you do. You’re damned if you don’t. So therefore, where what you want to wear and forget about everyone’s opinion.
Using Chyna as an example, I truly doubt she’s running errands with her son in the dress she was photographed in, and even if she was, so be it. More power to her.
Just because a woman has a child(ren), doesn’t mean they all of a sudden should wear plastic garbage bags or clothes that conceal their body. If you got it, flaunt it. If you don’t, still flaunt it. You endured child-birth, you can do what you want.
