Editorial Reviews

Jane Ellen Fairfax
This book is a "must read" for anyone in a transgendered relationship or anyone interested in the phenomenon of men and women who cross gender lines. This book is frequently the first book to be read when a spouse or partner discovers that her/his partner is a crossdresser.Yes, there are many women who are crossdressers!
—MD 5 Stars
Marianna Cross
It is not often that we can have the privilege of reading such an excellent book. It is a fortunate blend of common sense, clear, well written prose, intersped poetry and good taste. Five stars, applause and my heartfelt appreciation to Dr. Rudd.
—Mexico City 5 Stars
Rachael Miller
This book is a wonderful way to explain crossdressing to loved ones. Dr. Rudd's collective works including this book are some of the strongest writings in the field of explaining crossdressing to wives and family members. I would urge anyone married to a transvestite to read books like this one to help understand their husbands.
—California 4 Stars
Kathy Cloud
My Husband Wears My Clothes is a truly remarkable book by a truly remarkable woman and author. Not only does Dr. Rudd explore the facets of life with and among the millions living in the transgendered community worldwide, she offers the reader rare insights into the personal and private life of a woman who is married to a man who is a crossdresser. This book is factual, down-to-earth and a must-read for anyone currently involved in or considering a relationship with a crossdresser.

Interviews & Essays

From the Author

Today the expression, "Clothes don't make the man," has a new meaning for me. My husband is as loveable in my clothes as in his. He is a more complete person when the feminine side of his personality is openly expressed by wearing feminine clothing. For me acceptance and understanding have been accomplished by reading on the topic, interacting with other men who crossdress and their significant others, and being sensitive to my husband and his needs. In writing this book I am not exalting or advocating crossdressing. My purpose is to help eliminate many of the misconceptions. Society has been repressive. This is because people do not understand the true feelings and behavioral patterns of crossdressers. What people do not understand, they tend to fear, and fear breeds prejudice. As the reader grows in awareness my hope is that tolerance and understanding will grow proportionately. I do not expect readers to accept all of my thoughts and theories, but I do hope that the topic of crossdressing can be approached with an open mind.

    I am glad someone wrote about the topic! Thank you

    I am really glad someone wrote about the topic. This woman write a good book though not a top ten for writing, but her emotion and feelings and thoughts are clear. I think this is a must read for any wife. I thought the last review is way off target. Of course it is just one persons point of view. I think the initial review was more then bias and clearly I feel bad that he likely doesn't have the support of a true wife.
    When you marry someone it is "death to us part...for better or worse." I think any wife who doesn't stand by her husband is no woman. I am a proud wife of a crossdresser and I think every wife should support her husband. This is just one of many books a wife should read.

    Don't Bother

    This was one of the most poorly written books on cross-dressing that I have read for a few reasons. I found the frequent generaliztions on cross-dressing and gender roles to be far too simplistic, and at times contradictory. In the book, Rudd presents cross-dressers who feel the need to drastically change their personalities when dressed as a man or woman as well belanced, healthy people. Certainly anyone who feels the need to alter their personality as she describes is far from healthy! I found the suggestions to wives to be quite biased to the needs of the husbands. Give the women some support for their feelings too! By and large, this situation is not something they signed up for when they said 'I do' (and this is from a cross-dressing husband)! From a writing standpoint, the editing is poor, with chapters frequently straying from the topics of their titles and constant repititions of some topics.
