7 Modest Dressing Tips for Moms with Small Kids

Dressing modestly can be a challenge for many women, especially for moms.

Here are some tips to help you dress modestly and stay comfortable while taking care of your little ones.

1. Choose clothing wisely.

When dressing modestly, it is important to choose clothing that will cover your body adequately.

Choose clothes that will fit well and are comfortable for everyday wear. Put in mind that you’ll be in constant movement like bending and chasing your little ones most of the time.

When shopping for clothes, think about what kind of fabrics and styles will be comfortable to wear on a regular basis.

This means choosing clothes that are breathable and lightweight when it’s hot out, but also durable enough to last through tough days be it at home or work.

Always choose the clothes that will make you feel safe and comfortable and the people around you!

2. Avoid tight and too short clothes.

This includes clothing that is too short, or tops and dresses that are too low cut in the front because as moms of small kids we do a lot of bending and picking up things and you might end up revealing unnecessary body parts if you are wearing clothes that are too short or with plunging necklines.

You can read my “horror, shameful experience” that inspired me to take modest dressing more seriously.

Tighter clothes will only make you more uncomfortable and less able to move around freely.

3. Build a modest capsule wardrobe.

Start with a few basics that you can mix and match with different outfits to create different looks. This way, you’ll have a lot of options without having to worry too much about what to wear each day.

A modest capsule wardrobe can really make a big difference when it comes to dressing decently and comfortably while taking care of your little ones.

You’ll have more options when it comes to what you can wear without feeling restricted in any way.

Plus, having a few versatile pieces will make it easier for you to change up your look on the go without having to worry about being too conservative or too flashy.

If you are a mom like me who is not very knowledgeable about fashion and needs someone to guide you in building a modest capsule wardrobe specifically for moms, check out the Women’s Essentials Style Guide.

It is a done-for-you “style recipe book” specifically for busy moms who don’t have extra time to figure out what’s fashionable that helps you take the clothes you own and start feeling confident about how you style them.

It covers all your casual wardrobe needs, and also includes some dressier outfits for special occasions.

5. Avoid extreme styles and colors.

Stay away from extreme styles and colors by avoiding anything too flashy or head-turning.  Stick with more subtle shades and neutrals that will look good with any wardrobe.

By following this, you’ll be able to keep your clothing choices comfortable and modest while still looking stylish.

6. Wear comfortable footwear.

Comfortable footwear goes well with modest clothing. Avoid high heels and uncomfortable shoes that  will put a lot of stress on your feet and ankles.

High heels are often seen as sexy and glamorous, but they can be very impractical and uncomfortable when chasing and taking care of your little ones.

Instead, choose shoes that are comfortable, easy to walk in, made for walking or standing for a long time, and will allow you to move around easily.

Headbands can add color and fun, and scarves can keep you warm in the colder months or protect you from the sun in the summer.

While hats can add a touch of modesty and style, and gloves are a great way to stay warm in cold weather.
