Charmaine, You didn't get any comments about wearing mens shirts? I was just wondering... I am a larger woman (I am a size 30/32 blouse and size 24/26 pants US sizing) and women's dress shirts in my size are ridiculously expensive. So I ordered some mens big and tall catalogs to find some

    Default Was: Maternity Clothes


    Charmaine, You didn't get any comments about wearing mens shirts? I was just
    wondering... I am a larger woman (I am a size 30/32 blouse and size 24/26 pants
    US sizing) and women's dress shirts in my size are ridiculously expensive. So I
    ordered some mens big and tall catalogs to find some t-shirts and there are some
    dress shirts in it I really like (they are silk even) but I was worried that if
    I bought them people would comment on the buttons being on the wrong side and
    all that. The price difference makes it worth it really though... Would save
    me 10.00 - 20.00 per dress shirt and almost a 5.00 savings on brand new, heavy
    weight t-shirts. I am just afraid people would notice that they were men's
    shirts and look on it negatively in an office setting.

    always dress nice and that supervisors were noticing. So I would not
    give it a second thought were what you want. Anyone who notices is
    standing too close.LOL

    These days women wear men's clothes and jewelry more than you
    notice. I have a men's watch that I LOVE. It fits loose and looks
    really nice with a white shirt. I am also presently wearing my
    husband's wedding band as my young son lost mine. It is obviously a
    man's ring but I have gotten many compliments on how nice the wide
    band looks. I am only wearing it temporarily but I have kind of
    grown fond of it! I don't wear many men's shirts only because I am
    pretty short and they hang too low but I know ladies who do and they
    always look nice.
