This is an excellent choice...perfect!
We see her in this period scene and imagine she has become aware of a secret admirer...yes, her teenage son is watching his mother undress from a discreet location.
What will she do...make a subtle exit from view and save her son from the embarrassment of being caught???
No way...this is what naughty boys do, so why not give in just this once and play the tease, as long as neither party has to admit to anything.
What harm could it do...to slowly unbutton this dress, and let it slide (even more slowly) over these hips to reveal more of his mom than his wondering eyes could hope for.
Another good choice would be the mom in 'Carried Away' (1996) starring Dennis Hopper.
In the scene above, we imagine that her husband is fed up with the puritanical modesty she displays in the darkness of their bedroom, and forces her to strip in the full light of the family room...under the curious gaze of her own teenage son, whom he invites to watch.
