How to Pull Off a Saucy Halloween Costume After Having Kids

When you were younger, you might have loved trying out all the sexy Halloween costumes out there. But now that you’re a little bit older, can you still manage the incredible charm that comes along with those costumes? The good news for you is that you absolutely can — you just need to go about it a little differently. Here’s how.

Find a Pre-Halloween Party

You probably don’t want to break out the sexy Halloween costume on Halloween unless your kids are only a year or two old. After all, your kids are probably going to want to go trick-or-treating on Halloween, and it’s amazingly fun to take them.

Instead, find a Halloween party with other fun-loving people your age. Make sure you clarify that it’s a party that will welcome the aforementioned saucy costumes, so you don’t completely stick out. That way you’ll be able to have a great Halloween time and still find time to trick-or-treat.

Get a Babysitter

Next, find a babysitter that will take the kids for the whole night. Don’t try to change in the car or at your friend’s house before you actually get to the party. Just get a sitter for the night and allow yourself the luxury to get ready from your own home.

That also gives you the opportunity to come home and have a good time once you’re back as well. While you’re stocking up and deciding on your costume, you might want to consider grabbing a few other treats as well. Who knows what’ll happen when the kids are gone all night?

Find a Costume That Suits You

When you’ve already had kids, your body is going to change a little bit. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up your confidence and your sexiness. You can still embrace everything about your body. You just have to do it a little differently.

Decide what parts of your body you really love, and find a costume that enhances those parts. If you just got a breast augmentation or butt lift, you might want to try a costume that showcases that. If you know your partner loves something specific, find one that shows off those pieces of yourself. It’s actually an amazing way to make yourself feel young and free.

Give Yourself the Freedom to Have a Good Time

When you go out to a party like this, you’re in some ways giving yourself permission to not act quite so much like an adult for a short period of time. Rather than being “a mom,” you’re just having some fun at a party, and that can do wonders for your self-esteem and your mental health.

If you were big into partying when you were in college or a teen, this is sort of a throwback to those times. Just this time, you should always remember to have a designated driver and to put safety first, even while you’re having fun.


Just because you have kids, it doesn’t mean that you have to become frumpy or boring. You can still go to Halloween parties with fun and sexy Halloween costumes. Sure, you might have to do a couple extra steps first, but you can rock a sexy cheerleader costume just like you did when you were 19. Take the concept back into your own hands and try it this year.
