“Nursing While Butch” continues the adventures set forth by A.K. Summers in her fantastic graphic memoir, Pregnant Butch: Nine Long Months Spent in Drag, which is available at your local indie bookstore, comics shop, and here at Powell’s online. Seriously, you should get this book. “Straight-up hilarious.” (Vanity Fair)

    Nursing bras are optional unless you start off with huge tits that only get bigger. But don’t be scared of the nursing bra. There are neutral ones out there with minimal feminine flare, bare-bones business only nursing bras. A too-tight bra while nursing can lead to mastitis, and there is nothing butch about mastitis.

      I have always had large breasts and while nursing I went up to a 44DD, I used a not too firm (medium impact) sports bra with a front closure. Absolutely do not wear a tight bra, but any supportive bra with enough room will do.

      • Kate says:

        Yeah, I started off a 34DD and am still a 34 H/I/J/K depending on the brand. No such thing as a sports bra with room in those sizes; barely a thing as a sports bra 🙁

    These are all excellent points. I never got past a C, so I didn’t have the need for serious, u-gotta-have-it support. One-size-does-not-fit-all, in gender matters and otherwise! -AK
