I also tried to pick flattering dresses for Mother’s Day because let’s be honest – having a baby changes your body. While I personally don’t think that moms should be self conscious of their post baby bodies, I know that it’s still a struggle for many women.

Hopefully you can find some dress ideas that don’t just look great on you, but make you feel good too!
