The Top 7 Bra Styles Every Crossdresser and MTF Transgender Woman Should Own

With so many bra options to choose from, it’s easy to go wrong and wear a bra that’s the incorrect size or style for your body type.

Crossdressers and transgender women have unique needs when it comes to bras. If you want to enhance your feminine curves (without wasting money on bad bra purchases), consider these 7 bra styles:

1. POCKET BRA

A pocket bra, or mastectomy bra, has pockets in the cups to hold breast forms securely in place. If you wear breast forms (especially large or heavy forms), a pocket bra is a must.

2. FRONT CLOSURE BRA

Crossdressers and transgender women tend to have wide rib cages and/or widely spaced breasts. This can make it hard to find a bra that fits properly.

Enter the front closure bra. Front closure bras have a clasp in the front of the bra instead of the back. These bras have wider set cups, making them easier to fit.

3. T-SHIRT BRA

The t-shirt bra is every girl’s best friend. It’s a seamless, molded cup bra that’s designed to look smooth under your clothes – even the most form-fitting tee. Best of all, t-shirt bras come in a wide range of sizes.

4. CONVERTIBLE BRA

A common complaint I hear from crossdressers and transgender women is that many bras have straps that aren’t long enough for them.

Convertible bras offer a perfect solution. Convertible bras have removable straps that can be worn in different ways – including crisscrossed. Because of this, they have longer straps than regular bras.

5. BALCONETTE BRA

Balconette bras have cups that are cut horizontally across the bust. This is a beautiful cup style that’s particularly flattering to wide rib cages and/or wide set breasts.

Most balconette bras are padded, so they’re also great for giving “the girls” some extra oomph.

6. WIRELESS BRA

Underwire bras offer maximum support, so they’re ideal if you wear breast forms. However, they can be hard to fit if you have a wide chest.

Consider wearing a wireless bra instead. Wireless bras have a more forgiving fit, so they’re much more comfortable.

If you want to wear a soft cup bra with breast forms, look for a wireless pocketed bra or attach the breast forms to your chest with tape or adhesive.

7. ADHESIVE BRA

Adhesive bras are a backless, strapless bra style that’s attached to the breasts with adhesive.

These bras are fabulous for creating cleavage, so they’re a must for your femme wardrobe. (Click here to learn more about how to create cleavage with an adhesive bra.)

IN CONCLUSION

While you don’t need to limit yourself to these 7 bra styles (the sky’s the limit in bra land!), they’re a great place to start.

Now I’d like to hear about YOUR favorite bras. Is there a particular bra style or brand that works for you?

Is Gender Dysphoria Keeping You Down? (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

Gender Dysphoria is a condition of feeling one’s emotional and psychological identity as male or female to be opposite to one’s biological sex.

Clearly this condition can get stressful for anyone. When your body and mind are not connecting as one; it can really ruin a good mood. We understand this, and we would like to help.

We asked our Glamour Girls to explain to us some of the way they stay positive when feeling down about their dysphoria and we got some really good feedback. Here’s some great advice from an even greater community of individuals that know exactly what you are going through.

Put on an outfit you know you look good in.

“Wearing a pair of fabulous heels to feel super confident and sexy!”- Emily Couture

What’s a better way to make you feel better about yourself, than putting on an outfit that you know you look and feel awesome in? No matter how fancy or ridiculous the outfit is for lounging around the house- do it.

Cuddle your pet.

Pets are the perfect companions when you’re in an insecure mood, since they give unconditional love no matter what you look like or who you are. They don’t have one judgmental bone in their little tiny bodies. You can just cuddle and play with your pet until they inevitably put a smile on your face.

Treat yourself

“Retail therapy at G USA is a great diversion and puts me in a creative mood. Shopping most anywhere for coupons and deals focuses my attention away from my gender preference and gives me a positive outlook for my ‘Kim time’ to come”- Kim Rydick

“New lingerie always does it for me”- Daniel P

“A new pair of heels”- Samantha “Sami” Prescott

A typical response would be to “buy some ice cream”, but I don’t exactly believe in this tactic. Eating does not make me feel better- at all! It honestly does the opposite because then I feel even more insecure because I just ate a whole tub of Ben and Jerry’s… to myself… If I want to cheer myself up, I’ll go to Sephora, the salon, or to Bloomingdales. Leaving any of these places with a purchase, puts a smile on my face. So, go to your favorite place and buy yourself something that will make you happy. Treat yourself.

Set goals for yourself

This will keep you on track to finding happiness and peace in your life. When you are constantly pushing yourself, you will eventually become the woman you always wanted to be. Shying away from a difficult thing will keep you feeling down. The happier you will be the more goals you reach. Trust me.

Convert your frustrations into something positive

“I convert it into something positive and focus that positivity towards other who might need it as much, or more than me.”- Stephanie Anne Jeffries

Looking back at old photos and pondering past experiences will remind you about everything you have been through. It will hopefully get you to see that you can handle anything.

Get lost in some music

It’s awesome how music can affect your mood. Put on your favorite feel good music and dance around your house. Guarantee you forget all about the haters.

Surround yourself with friends that understand or might be going through the same thing

“I usually talk to supportive friends and family.”- Cassie Jo Smith

A great support group is a must have. You can’t take on the world alone- I mean you can- but that is no fun. Having other people to share bad experiences with, makes it a whole lot easier.

Start a journal or blog

If you don’t want to talk to anyone, let out your emotions in writing. Whether it be digitally or on paper. Letting it out somewhere usually helps relive the stressful emotions.

Exercise

“A cardio workout! Keeps my spirits high and healthy”- Nikki Cordova

For many people, getting lost in a good workout helps a lot. Your mind is free and you’re focused on the task at hand. Nothing can come in between that; giving you a stress free hour or so. It’s a win, win.

Take a long nap

This is my go to solution for a lot of things. Sleep is amazing and will obviously keep you relaxed. You will wake up feeling refreshed and maybe you will have a different outlook on your issues with a level head.

I hope any of you reading will try some of these tips when feeling down for any reason. These tips don’t just work for dealing with gender dysphoria but, mainly any situation. They are great tricks to incorporate into your life to insure you live a happy and fulfilling life.

 

Crossdressing fiction beware the bored witch

crossdress

The other side of town please, and hurry!
And please, don’t mind me. I’m trying to stay out of sight And I’ve never taken a taxi before.
But l’m trying to get away from someone.

You see there’s a crazy witch on the loose. Normally she’d be hard at work coming up with
new spells and what not. But right now well… She’s bored. And worse, she’s feeling a total
lack of any and all inspiration.

Smooth black underwear hip pads T-11B

SISSY

Perfectly designed pads for transgender and crossdressers!

Create a more feminine figure,feminine hips,curvy hips.

Have the same realistic feel as feminine hips!

y’s that a bad thing? Because she’s basically wandering around town doing whatever she
feels like, trying to ease her boredom. Usually by changing one thing into something else.
Mainly it’s guys into girls because this witch is feeling uninspired!

Yes, in my case I was changed from a guy into a girl.
So yeah, please don’t mind me. I’m trying to stay out oi her way!
Heck, lf l were you, I’d run for cover if you see her! After all, I got all lucky. I saw her turn
nother guy into a broken down old VW Beetle! Poor Herbie! Probably one of the few guys who
she hasn’t turned into a girl today!
Say… how fast can this car go…?

 

 

9 Fashion Rules Curvy and Plus Size Transgender Women Should Break

crossdress

I don’t particularly like the phrase plus size. I believe crossdressing people have all shapes and sizes. Why do you have to be referred to as plus size if you wear a size 12 or larger. (12 is plus size? Really? Seriously?)

If you are curvy, or Rueben-esgue, or even shall we say fluffy, doesn’t mean you have to be condemned to a lifetime of oversized clothes and a wardrobe of black.

Rule # 1: Don’t Wear Fitted Clothing.

crossdress

WRONG! Fitted clothing actually makes you look smaller. Loose clothing makes you look larger. The important thing is to look for the right sissy fit and certain details that will make the best of your shape.

Rule #2: Don’t Wear Maxi Dresses.

crossdress

Bullocks! You can! Look for V-neck halter top styles which look very flattering on well-endowed ladies. An empire waist, one that is right under the bust line, hits at the smallest part on every transgender woman. The length of the dress also helps to elongate your body making you appear taller and slimmer. Look for fabrics that float away from your body.

Rule #3: Curvy Gals Can’t Wear Pencil Skirts

crossdress

You can go for a crossdressing classic black pencil skirt, or a slimming pinstripe. You can also wear a brightly colored pencil skirt as well. Pick your favorite color and strut your stuff. Pair it with a button down blouse, fitted v-neck or scoop neck t-shirt or a cardigan. If you have a small waist, put a nice wide belt around it to show it off. If you have no waist, same thing, put a nice wide belt around it to create a waist.

Try a little color blocking in your outfit and be right on trend for spring and summer. Don’t be afraid of color. This brings me to Rule #4: Wear black.

Rule #4: Wear Black.

crossdress

Yeah, yeah, black is slimming. I have tons of black in my closet. I love black, but let’s face it all black everyday is just depressing.

Look for dresses in blocks of color or do your own color blocking. Try a turquoise shift dress with a red cardigan over it and an orange belt. Too much for you? Ok. How about a sunny yellow top, navy blue pencil sissy skirt and wide red belt? Put on a pair of peep-toe pumps in any of those colors, and bright bag and you are ready to go!

Rule #5: For That Matter No White Either!

CROSSDRESS

White is wonderful and no woman no matter what size she is should be denied the freedom to wear white. I would suggest either a white dress or white pencil skirt. White pants are hard to pull off for many transgender women and there is no need to torture yourself when finding the the perfect little white dress for your figure is so much more figure flattering and fun.

Rule #6: No Stripes!

crossdress

Pish-Posh! You can wear stripes! Go ahead put on a striped tee, dark wash jeans and a fitted blazer or short sleeve jacket. When buying jeans, trouser crossdress styles are the most flattering. Look for wide legs to create a nice long line. Wear a bright or patterned pair of wedge heel espadrilles. Adding some accessories like a nice long necklace and a few brightly colored bangle bracelets complete the look.

Rule # 7: Definitely No Skinny Jeans!

crossdress

Ok. Personally, I think skinny jeans look bad on everyone with the possible exception of stick figures, but if you want to rock this style like everything else, it’s all about proportion. Look for a dark wash and make sure you get a GOOD fit. Pair them with a flowing shirt and loose long casual vest. Wear a long necklace to draw the eye down. Put on a pair of funky booties or high heel sandals and you will look sissy smashing.

Rule #8: Stay Away From Prints

crossdress

Where’s the fun in that? You are probably getting tired of reading, “pay attention to proportion” but it really is the key to cross dressing well and looking your best. Pick the correct size print for your frame. Don’t get a print so tiny and dainty that it takes what looks like a million of them to cover you. On the other hand if you are short, a print that is two large or busy is going to make you look worse. Try to find a middle ground. This may mean you have to try a lot on, but it’s better than being stuck with something you aren’t going to be comfortable wearing.

Rule #9: Listen to Fashion Experts.
