Mum bods! (You know, like a dad bod but for us women)

Mum bods! (You know, like a dad bod but for us women)

I hear the phrase 'dad bod' a lot lately and it's got quite a positive vibe about it. I was just in the shower thinking (as you do) and wondered, why don't we hear about 'mum bods' too? So I hit the good old Urban Dictionary up and found this;

Definition of a mum bod: A woman who has had at least one kid and that child has affected her body in such a way that it changes her physical appearance to the point to where she no longer looks like herself. Ex: stretch marks on the hips, thighs and boobs, rounded face, double chin, cellulite ass, saggy boobs from nursing and pumping, a rounded or sagging belly (stomach, abdomen).

So according to that definition I most certainly have a mum bod! Sure, like a lot of women I wish my body looked different, but heck, I'm 52, I had a child after long term infertility treatments (relevant because multiple surgeries and a caesarean take their toll) and you know what, my body did a damn good job of bringing a beautiful new person into the world and nurturing them.

Anyone who looks at my profile will see that I have a complicated relationship with my body, particularly with how I describe it. Part of me wants to be proud of my body, part of me wants to define it accurately to others, part of me is tired of giving a fuck about it at all! Maybe I should just go down the 'mum bod' road and see what the response is. Yes, my body isn't 'showroom' condition, its been around the block a few times, but its still got a lot to offer!

I don't necessarily agree with the Urban Dictionary definition in its entirety (particularly where it says they no longer look like themselves), but some of it is very valid. Motherhood changes a woman, some more profoundly than others. So I'm proud to say I've got a mum bod. Over to you!

The Dad bod description

Is way more cute and complimentary ๐Ÿ™„

โ€œIf human bodies were cuts of meat, the dad bod would skew more marbled rib eye than filet mignon; or, if human bodies were sea mammals, dad bod would be more like a grazing manatee than a speedy dolphin. The dad bod is more mudslide than mountain, more soft serve than sorbet, more sad trombone than clarinet, more mashed potato than skinny fry. The dad bod is built for comfort.โ€

We got ripped off! Why are Dads Manatees yet we are no longer recognisable ? Shells of our former selves fed through the human meat grinder of life. STFU urban dictionary and your skewed perception.

Sorry OP just got a bit off topic. As you were.

Skewed perceptions!

Not off topic at all! Thank you for this. You are right, there is definitely a skewed perception. I wonder how the 'dad bod' gained so much support so quickly? The 'mum bod' needs the same boost!

OK then

Mum bods...I love'em because realistically women in my demographic have Mum bods and these are the women who are most likely to get naked with me.
Having said the it's the person who rocks the Mum bod that turns me on. Mrs Farmer lives 400 K's from me and the first time we met she was at pains to point out that she wasn't going to upstage Elle. Her term is jelly belly, she is a big girl in a number of ways and probably her heart is the biggest. Without going into details (I'd love to) she is an absolute asset to her community and has made a huge difference to many peoples lives.
Wifey and Ms Divorcee have Mum bods too, they're all beautiful women and I'm grateful for them being in my life.

I'm feeling a bit left out there, so let me introduce my

Definition of the no-mum bod: A woman who has had no kids, but has experienced life events that have affected her body in such a way that they changed her physical appearance to the point to where she no longer looks like herself. Ex: stretch marks on the hips, thighs and boobs, rounded face, double chin, cellulite ass, saggy boobs from illness, old age and and generally letting herself go a bit, a rounded or sagging belly (stomach, abdomen).

No complaints. Have a healthy proud mum bod here. Love all my perfect imperfections. : )

Let's remember those who have had non-surviving children, which has not only affected her body, but her mind, body and soul. RIP little ones.

Throw a jealous husband into the mix and it's safe to say we don't get jiggy very often.

A work in progress for me




I love all the imperfections, the ala natural life stories of the people we meet. Yes I have my issues from having 2 beautiful children later in life and the fact that I'm a lazy biatch and never exercised.... I do sexercise a lot tho (does that count) and to add to it I lost a lot of weight which I thought would improve my self esteem to only add due to now saggy skin and lost my butt...ohh well can win them all. Point is I feel better but gotta get over it, age can't be dismissed.

I know for fact that's why I'm a lingerie lover and the bugger stays on as long as possible, I feel sexy in it.....although have had a few moments of late where it it all comes off in the heat of the moment but mostly due to the beautiful compliments of our present company.

Self confidence is easy to say and I think it's the people around you that help. We have beautiful friends all shapes and sizes but we adore each each other for who we are not for our bodies.

I agree Country.

I say the same to people all the time, 'you look like you to me'.

Can I just add, ladies we're getting old-bods is what I know it to be. Bone density and muscle-mass decreases and adipose (fat) tissue increases. And can I also add, to all the ladies that are on this thread so far, I think you are all gorgeous and beautiful.

Time is going to keep ticking and I hope my ticker ticks until I'm 100! Viva la all of us!

Mum bods have a beautiful little human to show for the Mum's hard work. Either I drew the short straw or Dads don't get pregnant and therefore have no real reason to have a Dad bod. Mums really are worth their weight in gold.

Yep




Mum bod here, big butt and wobbly tummy. The guys Ive met and befriended like curves ...but...when Im meeting someone new I get self conscious. Ive met cuddly guys and been attracted to them so I dont see the difference, I just think women are much more self conscious about their bodies than men. For example, when Im chatting to someone I usually say that Im a curvy lady. Yet no guy Ive ever chatted to has felt the need to remark on his body shape.

Surely

It's really about who inhabits the bod.A confident person is a sexy person whether they have a mum bod a dad bod or any other kind of of bod.

But if all you are interested in is the perfect bod then you are just plain boring.

Check out Gina Stewart (grand ma bod). A single mum-of-four and grandma-of-one. I'm sure underneath there are some perfect imperfections. :)
