Husband causes outrage online for complaining his wife dresses 'frumpy' after giving birth to their baby

It appears she started to dress 'completely different.'

A man has angered people online after criticising his wife for dressing comfortably following the birth of their 7-month-old baby.

Taking to social media site Reddit, he shared his point of view and asked if he was in fact being an a**hole for doing so. 

The subject line read: "AITA [Am I the A**hole] for asking my wife not to dress so frumpy and like a mum all the time?"

"Since she gave birth back in February, the way she dresses is completely different. At first I thought she was just trying to be comfortable post-birth, but now that almost seven months have passed it seems like this change is permanent," he began the post.

Although he said he still believes his partner is "sexy", he is disappointed as "she just doesn't dress sexy anymore." 

"Most of her outfits are looser. Think lots of sweatshirts, sweatpants, and tent dresses. Plus they cover a lot more whereas in the past she loved to tease me to get a reaction," he explained.

He went on to say that he felt the same way when it came to her choice of lingerie.

"[She wears] bras and panties that aren't that nice compared to what she previously wore," he wrote.

In between complaints, he noted that he is trying not to be insensitive.

"I don't think my wife has to always dress sexy for me. That would be unreasonable. However, it would be nice at least a few times a week if she tried to dress up more and like she did before we had our daughter."

Although, the plot thickens. Apparently he confronted his wife about this issue and needless to say, she was not impressed with his feedback.

"I brought it up to her and she got extremely offended. As much as I tried to clarify that I find her attractive but want her to dress like she used to dress, she took it as me saying I am not attracted to her anymore.

"She also said that how she dresses is non of my business and if I can't be supportive not to say anything at all."

He ended the post by stating that he feels "this type of communication is important just like I think it's important for us to both try and dress attractively for each other."

Despite his attempt to stick up for himself, the man was flooded with negative feedback from Reddit users.

"[You're the a**hole], she brought your child into the world, and you’re not turned on by her clothes? She should dress in whatever she feels comfortable in, and if that is granny panties, then you need to suck it up and accept that," one said.

"[You're the a**hole], she’s only 7 months post partum. Plus is she breast feeding? She is dressing for comfort still it takes a lot longer then 7 months to 'get back to normal,'" another added.

Meanwhile, others were so shocked by the man's compliants they almost thought the post was a hoax.

"Dude. You need to not. And just stop. I sincerely hope this is fake, because this is just crap," the comment began.

"Your wife created a human, gave birth to it, and is still going through changes and getting used to her body as it is now, and will continue to go through more changes."
