Shirts are the most versatile piece of clothing: dress them up or down, give statements, and express your views. For the past few weeks, scrolling through Instagram & Etsy has been my favorite (and let’s be honest, the only) pastime activity. What I noticed is, many moms have excellent style AND a sense of humor… which they express through their shirts. So I went through some of my favorite Etsy stores to do extensive — and very important — research, and made it my mission to find the cutest, fiercest, and most awesome mom t-shirts.

Strong as a mother is more than an expression, and this is more than an article of clothing. These four words are your customers’ new mantra, their new manifesto.

Donning it as armor to head to a difficult appointment, or throwing it on after a challenging workout, or wearing it to collapse in when the kids are finally asleep, I’m pretty confident that moms are going to feel a new kind of strength in this piece. 

Mother’s Day is a time to honor mothers, motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. And this year, with everything that’s going on, we feel it’s especially important to do so.
