Moms--What do you refuse to wear??

This is directed toward any moms on this board (I'm one myself). I've frequently noticed that once women become mothers their sense of style changes--and sometimes seems to completely evaporate. With little ones of my own I do realize the need for comfort. And I've heard some verbalize their opinions of how mothers "should" dress (no short skirts, bikinis, etc.)
Personally I love trendy clothes and hate the notion of the overly conservative (read "frumpy") mom decked out in roomy drop-waist denim jumpers and "sensible" shoes. I wear a size 4 and work out daily and just don't see the point in hiding my body under oversized clothing. There are, however, things I definitely won't wear in large part because I AM a mom. I won't ever wear any thong-backed swimsuits, super low rise jeans that show butt crack when sitting down, shorts that are short enough to show butt cheeks, any garmets with vulgar sayings on them (slightly suggestive is okay, like some of the t-shirts Abercrombie sells), or anything bearing Playboy or Hustler logos. Nor would I wear any t-shirts that are insulting or demeaning in any way.
Is there anything that you wouldn't wear because you are a mom?
FYI--I just wnated to add that the clothing mentioned above I never would have worn as a single childless woman either. But I especially won't wear it now that I'm a mom of young children.
