What's In Your Wardrobe?


Guest ChloëC

Recommended Posts

Guest ChloëC

Since my first topic (telling one's spouse) actually went over better than I expected, I shall try another.

After reading some posts regarding wardrobes, I'm curious as to what all you/we have, where do you store it, if you have to hide it, where are some good places, how often do you update it. Or anything else you might like to share about your clothes!

Although the forum is for cross-dressers, any others (like those transitioning, for instance) are welcome to join in.

Let's see, I'll start, and at the top. I have three wigs, two brunette, both just over shoulder length, one fairly straight with bangs (I like bangs for some reason), the other a little wavy, the blond is longer (sort of a big hair, I bought it in a 'blond' moment - and I very seldom wear it anymore).

I have two dresses, one a black dressy sleeveless above the knee (the two -and others- in my early gallery pics are long gone), the other, also sleeveless but a more casual medium blue with white accents and double straps, just below the knee.

Four skirts, one tan and one black, both pencil shaped and above the knee (back zippered), the third a little white sport one that's rather short; the fourth is dark blue several inches below the knee, buttons up the front.

Three tops, a button up sleeved blouse with a muted animal print that goes with the tan skirt, a white button up sleeved blouse with pleats on the front that goes with the blue skirt, and a dark green sleeveless pullover that goes with the black.

Two pairs of shoes, dark blue pumps with about an inch or so heel, the other silver/gold strappy sandals with a 3 1/2" (or slightly more) heel.

A number of panties and bras, different colors, including a white longline, and a black strapless with garters. A black body shaper open at the legs, a panty girdle (no legs); cream thigh tops, black seamed stockings, several pairs of pantyhose dark and taupe, reinforced and nude. For sleeping, sort of a shear body suit that is extremely uncomfortable. Some accessories like clip on earrings, necklace, belts, my own cosmetics.

These all stay hidden because I have adult children that when not staying with us, still feel they have free run of the house as it's where they grew up. So mostly they're folded in a bundle or a garment bag both tucked way in the back of my closet, or occasionally in a large locked suitcase in the attic.

I actually purchased most of the above through mail order. A lot of thinking and looking as size charts, mostly I got it right, one or two things just a little roomy, one or two things a little tight. (but that's also a weight problem!!!) I once purchased a blouse at a real dept. store (way 'out of town') but a little too small. Long gone. Several items were retrieved (that my wife got, but hardly wore).

So, please share with the rest of us!

I've only recently started rebuilding my wardrobe after many years, so I have a very long

way to go.

But, so far I've gotten a dress, skirt, two pair of slacks, three tops, a sweater,

a pair of thigh-high boots, two pair of heels, two pair of pantyhose, and a wig.

:D

I've got my eyes on the latest Chadwick's catalogue, and already found a turtle neck

sweater that I'm going to get in both black and red. I may be able to wear them to

work with a suit, as they might pass as men's wear. :)

Ok, Hon......

You said MTF's can have a go, too....

So....

My closet has gone down to just a handfull of male things..(good to garden in!)

I've got gobs of pesant skirts (my favorite) blouses...slacks and tops...

Undies and stockings....but, no bras! Don't want...don't need...I'm a child of the 60's ...they roam free!

I wore camosols when my nipples were real sensitive, but no longer...

And shoes...at least 10 pair of misc...

Lots of earrings (Love bigg hoops...thanks, Lizzy)

All of my own makeup and my shoulder bag.......

There! I think that I'd be ready to go anywhere!

OHHHHHH...SLOWDOWN....THERE'S A GOODWILL!!!!!

I have two pairs of pumps, one wedge sandal, one wedge shoe, a sweater dress that I love to death, a party dress, and summer dress, a little black dress, some pants, button down shirts, a couple skirts, oh and a shirt dress which is kind of cool. I keep most of my cloths hanging up and keep the rest folded in my dresser. In time I'll just throw out my male cloths as soon as I don't need them anymore.

2 babydolls, 1 teddy, 1 chemise, 6 thongs, 3 g-strings, 2 bikinis, and a hi-leg brief. Oh and 1 costume

Hmmmm. I take it, Amy, that you're not acquiring a workplace wardrobe just yet? :D

If you are, I want to know where you work! :P

Not nearly enough! <_< I'm a total shopaholic..it will never be enough! :P Lots of panties, a couple bra's, a couple nighties, nylons, a pair of heels (I want more shoes and some thigh high boots sooooo badly!) a few skirts and blouses. I absolutely love shopping and clothes...i'm getting back into better shape right now, so as soon as that is done and i get back to my target weight, i'll be going on a shopping spree! :D If that isn't motivation, I don't know what is!

I'd rather not say where I work. It's retail, and I'm trying to find a new job at the moment. I don't even underdress (wear panties underneath boy clothes) at work.

I've got a double closet full of clothes plus my dresser is full as well, oh what a joy being full time almost three years. The only thing I don't have allot of is shoe's but I'm real picky about what I put on my feet. Every time I bring something new home Larry complains because I've run out of my space and he's afraid I start using up his.

WOAH! NICE!

Now, do you have shoes for that, too? I REALLY like the shoes that she is wearing!

Huggs...

Donna Jean

Nah, I don't have any womens shoes at all. I really wanted those heels she's wearing though, but I didn't want to spend the cash on it yet, especially since the shoes wouldn't leave my house.

"Now, do you have shoes for that, too? I REALLY like the shoes that she is wearing!"

Ah, yes, the MaryJanes with outrageous heels. <sigh>

I actually ordered twice several years ago from that costume place (Hollywood Costumes) in Florida that has that elaborate web site (and I think some MJ's were in an order). The first time was just as all those hurricanes hit, and their warehouse got flooded out, the second time, my order just seemed to disappear. I never lost any money, but it was frustrating. And now? I guess I'm past that.

Thank you all for contributing! I'm thrilled with the responses so far!

Hugs to all

Oh, Bummer about losing the shoes like that!

I'll tell you something...

I love shopping and buying clothes...Friday and Saturday nights for me are "date" night here at home with the wife..I get dressed to the nines!

But, as I get closer to full time, my clothes have gotten a little more practical..

I'm 100% out here at home and dressed all the time one way or the other...and heels and a tight, short skirt are NOT something to mow the yard in!...LOL

HUGGS!

Well I got my package in the mail, it only took 2 days for it to hit my PO box

IN it includes

83094.jpg

a white teddy with sleeves (I didn't really need another one but it was dirt cheap)

a wig

and neon pink tights. I should've gone for the traditional black but I couldn't resist.

I haven't even opened the box yet, and I have to take a shower before I try this stuff on, maybe if I get some courage maybe I'll model the princess dress with my face blocked out.

Alright I just got done trying all this stuff on.

First I tried on the teddy, and it was not very good. It was hard to tell the back from the front and the back of it is between a thong and a bikini. If I had to give it a score, it'd be a 3 out of 10.

Next were the tights, and I really liked them, but I wish I could've gotten a brighter shade of pink.

Then the wig, which fits pretty well and looks pretty good.

Then I tried on the princess dress, which was awesome. It feels good, looks great, and I look halfway passable.

Ah ha!

See? I said that the wig should work out pretty good!

Too bad about the teddy, though.....

Now...The fit on the Princess dress and how you look and feel??? AWESOME!

5 pairs of jeans, 2 pairs of capris, 4 skirts, 3 dresses, 12 assorted tops/shirts, 15 pairs of panties, 7 bras, four pairs of leggings, 7 pairs of nylons, a corset, 5 wigs, 15 pairs of shoes/boots - I probably have forgotten something - and it's getting tough to keep things hidden!

Where to begin? Out closet is one of those wide ones that has separate doors but is not separate inside. My wife hs her side and I have mine. The comfortable clothing goes in between the two sides so if anyone sees the closet open they can’t tell what’s my wifes or not. Since women usually have more stuff it only makes sense that it would infringe over to my “guy” side. Does not draw any attention.

Now the inventory. Over the years, when purging, I have probably thrown away more clothing, hosiery, shoes and undies than most women have in their closets. Now I am one of the lucky ones because my wife not only tolerates my desire she supports it. I sometimes think she enjoys it more then I do. Since I am currenlty a size 18 just go to Ross or Roamans and I have just about everything they sell. We literally stand in front of the closet and stare for minutes to decide what color and then what dress or skirt. As I type this I am very comfortably wearing a light brown lined skirt with black wavey stripes (almost a leopard design) , a solid light brown drape neck top, black bra, black panties, black stay up stockings, and last but not least a very very comportable pair of black four inch high heel oxfords. For accent I have a lovely pair of silver and gold clip on wide hoop type earings and a bracelet to match. Almost all of which the wifey picked out for me.

Another great day getting home and ripping off those pants, shirt, and flat shoes! I’ve got it so bad when driving home from work I ask myself,” Are we there yet?”

The best thing about the princess dress is that it feels like a real dress instead of the strawberry shortcake one which feels like a halloween costume. I do look adorable in it, I might take a picture if a few people want to see it. I do feel kinda weird having a black wig when Peach has blonde hair. My natural color hair is brown which can get red-ish during the summer.

      Good luck with the laser! I remember my first session. I had this salt and pepper stuff, and it was unclear that it would work. After a couple of sessions, I had to switch to electrolysis. Over 220 hours, and I am coming close to the end. Hair removal, no matter the method, is not what I would call fun, but is sure gratifying when you cannot see any hair and you feel smooth soft skin on your face.

      I think all of us have a lot of stuff that accumulates over the decades. Whether parents were old or young, being poor has created big barriers for our folks to engage with us when we were growing up. I can sense a lot of hurt in your words Willow. My folks were much younger, and I was fortunate that my folks gave me a lot of support. I still got yelled at, and still got some beatings now and again. I was still to scared to ever tell my folks that I was trans back then. Years later, my mother said to me, "I know more than you think I know."   I was floored. I think back to the how hard they worked for so little. Yet, I know a lot of others had to face much worse. I hope that you and your wife are doing okay. How is she recuperating?

      College.    Engineering school was so difficult and time consuming that I rarely thought of gender. As a result I was a lot less depressed and was suicidal only a couple of times, with no attempts. It was commute-class-commute-homework-study-work repeat. I didn’t sleep much. My father got sober so my home life drastically improved. I only asked one girl and I did get rejected. Apparently she was in a group that forbid dating people from other ethnicity’s and had I got involved with her I could have been killed. I was told about getting killed by someone in that group much later, but I don’t know if that was true or exaggerated.    I nearly flunked out and lost my scholarship freshman year which was a real big stressor. But I hit sophomore year running and kept getting A’s throughout my college years. I did get the scholarship back. I studied so much that I was able to complete 15+ credits of graduate school while still undergrad. I graduated with honors.    My closest friend was in computer engineering (I am civil/environmental engineering) and he was gay. The rest of my friends were women. I definitely felt right with that. My class was like 75% female. I connected with the women much better than men. Although I was definitely presenting as male at that time I felt like I was one of the women. I still didn’t know about the concept of being transgender, all I thought of that was they were cross dressing. But at this point I knew I was a woman inside of a man’s body and men’s clothing.    After graduating, I got a job at the sewer department and took night classes to complete my masters degree in two years. I was able to complete it so quickly because of all the masters credits from when I was undergrad. So it was now work-commute-homework-studying-commute with little time to think about gender. So I was actually pretty happy and not depressed. The summer of graduation I started caving which led to a lot.

      Good morning    @awkward-yet-sweet you didn’t need to grow up poor or in a bad family to need to get away.   by most standards, my parents should have been my grandparents, my father was 5G when I was born. He never did much with me and if he couldn’t fix it with money he didn’t bother.    My mother was 40 but that was still old to have a baby back then.  I was sick a lot.  Weak compared to others my age.  Mostly mentally abused, not physically but still abused.  I could never get any praise. Got a lot of static about my first year of college. I dropped out and joined the Air Force.  This was at the heights of Vietnam.  Girls joined to get away from abuse with the hope of learning a skill they could use to support themselves when they got out.  Sorry to say a lot of their abuse continued in the service back then.   nothing has changed and I doubt it ever will.

      High school   In high school I hung out with the average people so life at school was pretty easy. None of the elementary and middle school craziness I had been suffering. The guys I usually hung out with really weren’t really into crude talk about women which was a breath of fresh air compared to middle school. The jocks left me alone and I avoided them. Just movies and hanging out at the local pizza place. I barely passed in Latin but did very well in the other classes. We, mostly nerdy girls, would hang out in the biology lab with a freshly graduated lab teacher. She barely looked like she was older than us and probably knew we were cutting another class. I guess administration figured hanging out and talking about college to a teacher was low priority to enforce compared to the kids cutting class to smoke pot, tobacco or drinking alcohol in the restrooms. Gym was ok, but I did earn the nickname of hyper changer since I would change so fast that nobody saw me changing.  I felt wrong though even though I was doing good socially. I definitely knew I was in the wrong body and hated my penis. Needless to say, I was very depressed in high school and had tried to kill myself a couple of times. It is amazing that my liver survived the Tylenol overdose I took before bed one day. My parents knew that I was depressed and had me on antidepressants but they did not know that I had attempted suicide until I told them a couple of years ago. The meds really didn’t help. I still didn’t tell my doctor that I was in the wrong gender. It didn’t help that my father was alcoholic and was verbally abused sometimes. He did get sober and my relationship with him drastically improved.     I also huffed basically anything volatile to escape my life. I had some fierce hangovers from that. Nobody knew that I had been doing that either. Ultimately I quit that freshman year of college after face planting into a toolbox full of sharp tools. Outwardly I seemed happy to everyone.    Like every boy I was expected to ask girls out, but the concept felt unnatural. It felt like that the girls should be asking me out. No surprise that I went to next to no dances, and the only one I ended up dancing was a goth girl, like the polar opposite of my lifestyle. I ended up hanging out with her and her friends pretty regularly. when prom came, we made plans to hang out at the mall, but those plans fell through. I still talked to them on Facebook up until I ended up marrying someone. I was definitely one of the girls with them, but I didn’t realize that. High school would have been a bad to have started transitioning as I would have likely been expelled. Catholic school.    Later post for that. I initially did meet my wife in high school but it amounted to me saying “hi” and running off. I was very shy. I also thought she was with someone else, but now know that guy is gay and they were inseparably close friends. She was only one class with me.   My high school was a catholic school so everyone was expected to attend college. We had three West Point cadets come from my class, but one of them ended up deciding to go to Harvard medical instead (it was an Ivy League medical school, I am not entirely sure it was Harvard). I graduated in 2000 with honors and got accepted to an engineering school in New York City with a partial scholarship. Currently the only people from high school that I am in touch with are my wife and her gay best friend.

      Good morning all. A brisk clear morning, however beautiful to sit outside with a hot cup of coffee and enjoy the birds chirping.  Have a great day.

      As I keep reading all of the news articles chronicling the attempts to eradicate our very existence, I do wish that the Biden administration would let us do something to reduce the trail for those who want to out us, denigrate us, humiliate us, and eliminate us. If they would allow us to change our social security number, then erase the record of doing so, it would prevent people like Paxton from zeroing in on us. I read an article this morning that there are 13 Red states that are planning to initiate legislation based on birth gender. This could mean they try to reverse our licenses, and public records. Imagine the damage. Unfortunately, in so many of these states, there is an R super-majority, and reasoning with these (expletive deleted) individuals will not happen. These super-majority politicians ignore every medical professional and their associated professional organization with glee in their eyes. Even if the courts try to intervene, it is like playing bingo. Sooner or later, these proposed laws will go to the super-majority R-led/appointed Supreme Court, and we know where that will lead.   I plan on enjoying my last year or so of having a license and social security records that reflect the brain I was born with (female), rather than my male genitalia at birth. I wish I could get a rosier vision in my head. Even if we get out to vote in the national election in November, these super-majority R-led states will still make our lives hell.

      These folks sure have an unhealthy fascination and irrational hatred for those both giving and receiving medical help for established medical help.   Unfortunately it is hurting so many who need help.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Good morning all! I have my BA scheduled in May (yay!) and as the date gets closer, I wanted to get some opinions on what questions I should be asking during my pre-op appointment. I've already had a consult, and I got good vibes and my questions at the time were all answered, but I suppose I'm in that mindset of "you don't know what you don't know." First question I have are what questions should I be asking at the pre-op appointment?   Secondly-what was recovery like? TImeframes for going back to work, pain levels, tips and tricks, all are welcome. Thank you all!
