Top definition
The semantic counterpart of a soft butch - more femme than an androgyne, but less femme than a femme. IOW soft butch is to femme lite, as butch is to femme.

A femme lite might also be described as a boyish-looking woman - in face, figure, and/or style - but with the emphasis on the woman. Not a tomboy... at least not anymore. Cute; handsome; capable.

Can be any sexual orientation or relational approach.
On TV or stage, self-described "chapstick lesbian" Ellen DeGeneres is a femme lite. But on the street she sometimes appears more of a tomboy, androgynous, or soft butch - i.e., somewhat less femme.
