Maternity Clothes for Genderqueer Parents

Reposted from The Cut.

From the article…

Once upon a time, maternity clothing was all bows, floral patterns, and muumuus. While it has evolved in the last few decades to include body-conscious styles that flaunt (rather than hide) “baby bumps,” it’s remained mostly conventionally feminine.

The founders of the new line Butchbaby & Co. want to change that. Vanessa Newman, a digital strategist, and Michelle Janayea, a design student at Columbia College in Chicago, are creating an alternative to hyperfeminine maternitywear aimed at LGBTQ folks who are starting their own families.

    This. Is. Amazing.

    I really really hope this launches smoothly and catches on. It has a limited target audience right now, just because the number of people who are masculine and pregnant is small, but I definitely think that this “style” could be a huge stepping stone for the normalization of female masculinity and trans parenthood. As it says on the website, it’s more than just a clothing line; it’s a step forward.
