A reader wrote to me asking about “pregnant butch clothing”—maternity options for those who either identify as butch or at least dress a little less on the feminine side of things.
My spouse Helen (who doesn’t identify as butch, but has that aesthetic) spent very little on “official” maternity wear. She bought one pair of maternity overalls (high on butch factor), a few pairs of stretchy (but not “maternity”) sweat pants, and some larger shirts, and they seemed to suffice. She was lucky enough to work in a casual environment, though. Those of you who have to dress up for work might not be so lucky.
I thought I’d open this one up for your comments. I know I’ve seen a few posts here and there on the topic, so leave a link if you’ve already written about this, or write in a comment below.
Have you and/or your significant others found decent, non-feminine maternity wear? Surely there are more options than just enormous flannel shirts. Let us know!
