Proper Piratess Attire

Female pirates were quite rare during this time, notable exceptions being Anne Bonney and Mary Read, who sailed the Caribbean with "Calico" Jack. These women buccaneers of the high seas are believed to have worn the same clothing as their male counterparts.

Although their clothing would have been considered shocking and scandalous in their day, a pirate wench would never have dared show quite as much skin as these fun and sexy modern pirate queen / pirate wench costumes!
