On Being A “MILF”: How Much Is Too Much When You’re A Mom?

January 22, 2015  |  

 

I could not imagine being the child of a celebrity, let alone a child with a mother who is as hot as Amber Rose, Blac Chyna or Kim Kardashian. These women have all the right measurements, from their busts, to their waists, to their bottoms, and their figures seem to make any man’s knees weak. Just read the creepy things their male followers have to say on Instagram when they pose in little to nothing.

And while they leave very little to the imagination, often to a lot of praise, let us all remember that those hot bods are also very hot moms.

The new wave of moms want to have it all – baby, snapback body and all the attention that comes with the latter. There are no better “milfs” to be inspired by these days than Amber, Kim K., Chyna, and even Bey and J Lo. These women grace the cover of magazines just months if not weeks after delivering their bundles of joy, and are proud to make your jaw drop when they pop up in your Instagram feed. It’s easy to forget that those bodies people are ogling are those of mothers and wives.

They do say that if you’ve got it, flaunt it. And yes, it’s nice to be proud of your body after a baby, but where do we draw the line?

It is all a measure of taste. Amber Rose nearly shattered the Internet – or at least Instagram – with her recent barely there monokini and topless photo shoots. While sitting under falling water and holding her breasts could be seen as artistic, posing in stilettos and black thread that barely covers her goods? Not so much. The photos were tasteless. There was nothing stylized or glamorous or high fashion about it – it was simply Amber Rose putting her boobs and a** on full display. Again.

On the contrary, Jennifer Lopez’s latest Complex cover is gorgeous. The pop star is rocking that plunging bodysuit! And while we all are well aware of Jenny From The Block’s assets, we are not bombarded with images of it. Instead, she does just enough to keep us wondering what her diet and workout regimen is, but scales it back enough to keep things classy.

Don’t get me wrong, women do not have to sacrifice low necklines and high slits to be a good “mom.” We are sexy and confident creatures who possess the ability to look great while taking care of our responsibilities and being great parents. But not every photo shoot of your newly taut tummy and bodacious bottom needs to be shared with these E-streets.

This whole “milf” thing is getting a little out of control, because in this digital age, what we put out there is there forever. The claim to fame of these women may have been their bodacious bodies, but every Instagram shot doesn’t need to illicit a hard-on. Their beauty stretches far beyond that. And if I can be honest, tooting it, popping it and then flashing it one minute before sharing a picture of your child’s cutest moment the very next is a bit too much…
