  1. 1. What Is Your Favourite Dress Style?



Recommended Posts

Just wondering what your favourite look is for most every day/night occasions? There's a poll attached, so I hope this works...

I'm 68 years old  and tend to dress my age and have found the classic styles work best. With dresses the Peplum style dress creates an illusion of hips which like a lot of mtf's I lack, and that  has become my go to  style of classic dress, I now own 2 of them

I don't know my style yet, but the few items I have could probably bounce somewhere between librarian & soccer mum - and I would LOVE to be brave enough to cosplay in the future. My geek transcends my gender. :) ?‍♀️?

I love dresses.  I really enjoy the provocative pink Sunday frilly dress look.  I wasn't sure which style that would fit into.  But here's my next dress purchase.  I'm just waiting until I loose my last 15lbs or maybe 20lbs. before splurging for it.  But this dress attached to this post is me, Susan, all the way.  I absolutely love it. ❤️

I love dresses. Most of mine are casual or to wear to church. I typically wear slacks and a blazer or sweater at the office whenever I'm not in scrubs. I don't wear dresses in cold weather, unless I'm going to a club, then its more of the rock chic slutty style. :rolleyes:

An interesting poll! That's a lovely dress Susan. I prefer somewhat more classic styles, but, especially with skirts, often dress far too young for my age with a high hemline. My favourite dress though (a summer dress) could be described as more hippy in style. I love variation :D

What a fun topic, and I voted "rock chick" ?

 

That is a lovely dress Susan, and I really like how it fits her. I own several dresses, yet as Tracy eludes, I try and dress about my age (I'm 60 ?). My favorite dress is a midi (just below the knee) style wrap, with 3/4 sleeves. The strappy dresses I use a cardigan to cover my shoulders sometimes. I have this stretchy sleeveless denim maxi dress that is so versatile and nicely fitted at the bodice, it's very flattering, I can wear over a long sleeve top for example, denim pairs up with almost everything, I do like long flowing skirts, and then there is my tennis dress, that's the shortest hem, I've gone out with, like hiking at sourdough ridge, Mt Rainer, into the heart of the sunrise....:)

I'm a bit of a hippie chick ( or boho) and wear mostly long denim skirts, dresses or jeans.  It is easy to dress them up with a scarf or top for more formal times.  I also have a couple of very nice suits that i wear for special occasions.

What a fun topic. I actually just bought my first dress in years. Well, it's actually a skirt but.

I'm always a bit of a hippie/boho chick. I haven't been wearing skirts or dresses but lately find myself being more and more comfortable in public. I love long flowing skirts in earth tones. I just bought the cutest little boots to go with my shirt. I'm getting ready for pride in Ft Lauderdale next month ❤️ these are the boots I bought.

Thanks for everyone's feedback! So far, it looks like the Classic look is the most popular, with Rock Chick/Hippie running a close second. I voted Rock Chick, though I actually like all 3 for different occasions.

I have found with the help of my daughters that I tend to fit in and go more so under the radar if I dress my age and in most cases for ladies in their late sixties that would tend toward a more classic style, I envy my daughters in that they are able to where many different styles that my pleasently plump plus size body cannot.The one thing I will say is that for many of us the fact that we are now able to go out in public dressed as we always felt we should be able to is a victory in itself reguardless of the style.

At 71 years old and no help from my Ex or daughters, and absolutely terrible taste from another Trans family member, I rely on suggestions from the sales staff at either Dress Barn or Lane Bryant.  For me, it is largely tops and skirts since that way I can get different sizes for the tops (3X) and the skirts (2X) and then get a sweater or blazer for colder times.  Business casual for most wear.  Long skirts and tops in Concert Black for time with my chorus.  I have one mid thigh skirt, and now a couple of tops that go longer down my legs than the skirt does.  I am a comfortable old mess.

I would have to say my style is a casual trendy style.  But I also love the nice A line flowy skirts.  I am also a cosplayer and make my own costumes for events and have gotten pretty good.

 

Attached is a few pictures of my style that I have adopted

I only have two dresses.  one is 3/4 sleeve knit.  a bit clingy but is very soft and comfortable at or slightly below the knee.  I bought my second dress today.  A line style just above the knee.  lacy sleeves and trim.  for me the neck is important.  too open or low is not good, so no cleavage showing, especially since my cleavage isn't really mine.

 

I mostly wear skinny jeans, or leggings with a long top.

I'd consider my personal style very much "sexy librarian". For the most part I dress pretty modestly, but I also like to wear shorter skirts from time to time. Usually though if I'm wearing a sleeveless dress I'll pair it with a cardigan or something to cover my shoulders when I'm going to class/working in the library. Basically my thought process is "flirty, but keep it professional".

Not passing judgment or anything, but I'm curious to see librarian and office girl as the same choice.  Maybe it was George's heartthrob Mary in the movie "It's a Wonderful Life," but I always thought of librarian attire as frumpy.  Conversely, I have always gravitated towards female office wear because it can be so very sexy.  In fact, my favorite female attire is business/office wear.  I can look professional yet still exhibit a sexy vibe.

      suits. even tho they're quite formal, blazers and trousers make me feel like a man.  but also the baggy t-shirt/big jacket/straight jeans combo. they make me feel like any other boy my age, it makes me feel very happy.

      Edit: ...as MOST if not all human beings are lol.

      ...Buuut...crap. This might be one of those social situations where I just shouldn't say anything, but I'm a little drunk, so I'm gonna risk it LOL. Here goes it: The first thing that comes to mind, is...there is no free will. ...For anyone to decide to do anything at all is simply an illusion; a beautiful lie. The reality of the matter is that due to the laws of nature and the laws of physics, EVERYTHING is pre-determined; written in stone the moment gravity first got it's foothold in this most-likely-fake thing humans like to call the Universe. For me to think that I have any kind of say in anything at all just seems to be laughably absurd to me. ...We're all slaves to fatalistic destiny. No one is really responsible or to be blamed for anything in Universe. ...And that's pretty much the only way I've found for me to forgive people who hurt me and others...it's not their fault; they know not what they do lol. The second thing that came to mind is WAY less deep; it's simply that it occurred to me that perhaps a part of me doesn't really like the word "Dysphoria" because it sounds like a mental illness. I'm not sick. Nothing's wrong with me. I'm merely dissatisfied with various aspects of my body, as all human beings are. Thinking of myself as "dysphoric" just feels...WEIRD lol. XD
    • Nora
      Edit: ...and part of middle school before "the incident." Sorry; I zoned out and re-lived some crap for a sec. I'm fine LOL. XD
    • Nora
      Thanks for sharing! That makes a lot more sense; the social dysphoria you describe is something I've felt for literally decades, in the sense I never really got along with the boys and preferred playing house with the girls, especially when I got to be the baby LOL. 😆 Got bullied all throughout elementary school, and part of elementary school before "the incident" happened when I was twelve, and then I prefer to just fast forward five years later at the age of seventeen and just skip that violent-gorey-horror-movie section of my life that led to copious amounts of drug and alcohol abuse which continues to this day despite my nurse's wishes lol. Then the good old fashioned bullying from when I was kid resumed all throughout my five year long firefighting career starting at seventeen. It was nice; I actually enjoyed the hazing; it was WAY nicer than...the period of time we shall never speak of...at least not tonight. =P

      Indeed, I should not care what others think or say, but alas, I just can't help myself lol. I'm terrified of causing a scene. I live in a town fulla cowboys, mountain men and rednecks. ...What if one of them's a psychotic bigot? ...What if they go after my mother? ...What if I can't do anything to protect her? ...I'd probably end up becoming a serial killer who targets transphobes, collecting locks of their hair in a scrapbook as trophies; THAT'S WHAT! Rotflol. 🤣   ...And I just CAN'T let that happen lmao. XD ...I'll get out of the house more in a few years or so LOL. XD

      Thanks @stveee ! There are so many common threads in your story & mine. I kind of regret not thinking of feminizing my clothes, it would've given me a bigger wardrobe. ICurrrently: finally ready to face myself, sober, and will begin with a gender therapist who is transitioned. Questioning whether I desire or need to transition to female. I was right there nine months ago, so happy to have found this forum, & a wonderful gender therapist. I too feel more alive & someone is unfolding on this journey into my femme.   Hugs! Delcina

      That's no way to live. I have been this way and I am just getting to the point it doesn't really bother me to walk around the women's dept and look to see what treasure I can find to wear. I am in the building stage with my wardrobe and I know it will take me a long time to find just the right garment to buy and wear. I have been working on my transition actually for the last couple of years, but medically transitioning for the last year. I can say I am not as nervous today with wanting to step out as my authentic self. I want to do it more and sometimes it seems exciting and all I can do is smile. I don't care if I am presenting correctly. It is my differences that make me better see what to do next. I have a plan to go to the mall and sit, watch and learn what will make me better. Fear shouldn't become the factor for not presenting in public. You shouldn't care what others think and say.

      I want to feel cute but comfy, so it's either nightshirts/nightgowns lounging around the house, or an off the shoulder top or crop top really makes me feel girly.

      Hi, my name is Stevie. I started "crossdressing" in early teens, maybe before, by cutting up my clothing. My parents would find piles of them and who knows what they thought. But I just had to do it. Then when I was 16 was the first time I tried on my older sister's tops.    My father suggested I join the Army after high school. I did and would buy clothes for my girlfriends and end up wearing them. I would engage in intimacy but stopped short of sex. I felt like my genitalia was not connected to my mind and felt no pleasure through it.    While in the military I took to binge drinking and severe depression ensued. By the time of discharge, I was suicidal, had several attempts and detoxes. I was admitted into the VA hospital and the first two meds made me numb and psychosis developed. Then, I genuinely tried to take my own life. Finally, a few years later, put on disability and took prozac for around 12 years which helped a bit. I met my first transgender (older transitioned MtF) persons in the VA and basically brought up the idea: why can't I be somewhere in the middle gender? Answer I got was basically Honey, that's not how it works. So facing a transition to female, I think I was 28 at the time, seemed like what I had to do. Or at least, try to live as much female as possible. I ended up marrying because I was lonely and afraid I could not support myself, and she accepted my gender ID and crossdressing. But I was seeing no therapist, no hormones. Started electrolysis in this DIY attempt, and some kind of facial hormone cream which I didn't realize was all short-sighted. Early internet days, shoddy information, sketchy sites.  The marriage was a disaster as there was abuse, drugs, alcohol and our individual psychological issues. Finally was separated, on my own and basically just existing. Using substances to cope. Dead to the world. Continued to keep a wardrobe and just managing the "dual life".  Went through Vocational Rehab in a janitorial program to get back into work. Exterted myself and got the job I have today and making more than I ever did. A few years, tossed my wardrobe (again)...oh, except a few things of course, and thinking the dysphoria will just go away now that I am older. Nope.   Currrently: finally ready to face myself, sober, and will begin with a gender therapist who is transitioned. Questioning whether I desire or need to transition to female. Accumulating another wardrobe. Really regret tossing my shoes and I had some really cool things. I have the feeling of looking in the mirror and seeing a girl in there, buried under years of self-abuse. The fluidity is a bit precarious as the more I accept and go femme, the more alive I feel, like something is unfolding.  But I am still quite boyish and discovering what fits for me right now and the my physical limitations and working with them I guess as I am not just confined to the closet and want to be seen for who I am...which is a work in progress I suppose. There are still things about me that I very much like and don't want to change, and others which seem to cause conflict.  I get some comfort in realizing I do not necessarily have to be either one or the other gender right now, and it's more about how I feel about myself than passing or trying to live up to an ideal image. But sort of feel like a small minority as someone who has not gone through all the changes (yet?) of the transitioned, as I am still outing myself in small steps, in a small circle. I am naturally careful, but honest. I do not fear being hurt so much "out there", as I know from experience I am my own worst enemy and cause my own difficulties more than anyone could ever do.  Thank you for letting me share. I actually hope this has helped someone else who is lurking. After all, "Normal People" don't go years struggling with questioning their gender- we are all Trans here and in different chapters of the same story.  Love you All, S.

      Hey, everyone! I'm on low dose T now for about 7 months, I use Testogel and, except for a few more whiskers and other very little changes, there hasn't really happened anything yet. I don't wanna say I'm not happy with what has changed but I really wish for a little more, especially after that time. My dose is really low, now I want to take twice as much and hope to get closer to my goal during the next months. But there are two things I'm a little worried about so I thought maybe someone here could help me! About two or three months after I've started HRT, I noticed that I'm losing much more hair than before. It still looks totally okay but there IS a difference. Do you think I will lose even more when I increase the dose? I mean, if that's the case I will accept it. Before I started HRT I was waaay more worried about that. Now it's not that much of a problem for me anymore but it would still be nice to know what to expect. :'D And the second thing (which I'm more afraid of): I've read that transmen on Testosterone have to have their internal female parts removed (uterus and ovaries, as far as I know) because else the risk will be higher to develop cancer. I don't know if that's true and if yes, how quickly I have to do that to prevent anything! I'm afraid I'll have less time to undergo that treatment when I increase my dose, and I don't know when I'll be ready for that. (It's not that I want to keep those parts, I just have a problem with hospitals and suffer from panic attacks when it comes to certain check ups or medical treatments...) And another question that's just coming to my mind: Will the removal of those parts have any other effects on my physical and mental health?   I want to talk with my gynaecologist about all that anyway but I'd still like to hear some opinions/experiences from other transmen (or non-binary persons on T or others who know more than I do)! I don't know how much my gynaecologist knows about the whole topic, and unfortunately, I can't talk with my endocrinologist about it because she probably can't tell me ANYTHING. I don't wanna sound mean but she's really not competent, and I'm not the only one who noticed that. Everytime I was there, I've had bad experiences. She gave me wrong information. Not to mention the assistants. But she's the only endocrinologist within my reach so I don't have much of a choice.   So, I hope someone here can share their knowledge/experiences with me; I'd be grateful for any answer!
