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:

Susan that’a beautiful dress! I kind of like the fit and flare, sheath, and summer dresses. Also cardigans and tunics.

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.  

 

Hugs,

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 don't wear dresses very often. Quite rarely, actually, but the ones I do have are 50s retro style. ?

Punk on my anti-establishment days, and goth on my anti-establishment, but I wanna look pretty days.

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.

      69 is NOT too old to start HRT. That's when I started HRT with monitoring and it has been a lifesaver.
    • Colleen Henderson
      Hi, Debbie...   The VA had no problem with prescribing me HRT at that exact age.   Prior to that, I had been on the same regimen for a couple of years with their knowledge and was being monitored appropriately. That was before they had a formal policy in place regarding the treatment of transgender patients.   My first episode of bilateral pulmonary embolism in 2015 was attributed to estrogen, and so I stopped taking it. But I had a recurrence in 2020, and that time the doctors opined that I simply have a genetic tendency to develop blood clots.

      ive been on herbal estregens off and on for about 6 years the most effective herb for me has been puraria mirifica but i have had side effects from it mainly being moor sensertive to things people might say to me in every day life also had a sore mouth with it in the past. this time around ive started with a low dose and am graduly increaseing it but doing it slowly . ive grow a B cup breasts so far and they are starting to look very fem just lately and ive only been back on the puraria a couple of months . so im thinking at the mo i might never need to go on prescription HRT if progress continues as its going . i know a lot of mtf say puraria is not any good but for some reason it works on me could be my age im 69 so i dont supose my T levels will be very high anyway . ive seen where i can buy perscription estregen on line and i am tempted to try it as in self medicating but not realy shure how safe it might be at my age does any one hear have any knoleg of starting hrt later in life ? debs

    • Mattie Michele
      Hello everyone, my name is Mattie Michele. I am a current active duty soldier that is transitioning from male to female. I came the this discovery back in 2020 during the lockdown. I was deployed away from home during that time frame and had plenty of time to think and reflect on self.  Im my early 20s i was bisexual and experimenting with both male and females. I was attracted to females but enjoyed the physical intercourse from males. During this time period i was still really trying to figure myself out. I was very shy and timid during these years and had issues with relationships. I was content with the little bit of interaction i was able to get. As the years went on i realized i was getting more envious of females with the outfits they could wear and the attention they were receiving. I was jealous and envious of them and i guess secretly i was really wanting to be them. But all of those thoughts were pushed and buried as i tried to maintain the male presentation while i continued to serve in the military. Majority of the time i was just forcing myself to be the image of the person that everyone wanted me to be.    Years later i finally met my wife and got married. We have two daughters together. It wasnt until a year after my last daughter was born when i was on my latest development during the covid lockdown, that i decided to try wearing womens clothes.  I was envious of the outfits and selections they had whenever i went shopping and would always be checking out the female styles and debating which looked better. During my deployment i dabbled first in the undergarments then everything just went from there. That was about when o discovered that I was Transfemenne.    Now i am slowly going through the process of changing everything and becoming more feminine by the day.

      It was an Opinion Of The (Elected) Attorney General, Ken Paxton, that under Texas Law the elements of care for a Trans child COULD constitute child endangerment and abuse and advised the Governor it was legal to investigate it as child abuse.  The opinion was requested by Abbot.   The Department of Child Protection is an Executive Department of the state, which falls under the Governor's executive authority to direct and give orders to.  I worked for a department of that nature in my State for 30 years where luckily our Governor was bright enough not to interfere in that way, but while the person in this article was  a Civil Service System person who is immune to the Governor's whims on employment, the department head was "owing" (a job to which the governor can appoint people outside the normal Civil Service system) to the governor for their job, and jumped without asking how high.  Under Civil Service, the orders of your department head do rule your life as a State / County employee and you do try to act fairly for the citizens you work for by your own oath of office.  You could be fired for refusing the order of your boss, but it would take a special process and would involve review of your work for more than the single refusal to perform an order.    I was a State supervisor and know the Texas system in general since it follows the Pendleton Act structure of Federal Civil Service Law although even there they could fudge on some parts and make it rougher on the employee.  One of my biggest problems as a Supervisor though was to rein in what some of my people considered to be an order to go out and rough up the citizenry which did more harm than good.  I applaud the decision of the worker here.

      They don't believe trans really exists (just like they believe being gay is a choice), and therefore, in their warped minds, all trans kids must be a matter of the parent forcing them to transition.   With that crowd, it's all about deciding what you want to believe first (ie "trans isn't real"), and then inventing whatever story it takes to explain what they've already decided to believe.
    • KathyLauren
      I am no expert.  But my understanding is that it is certainly not a law, and I don't believe it is an official executive order.  It is just an opinion of the governor about how existing law should be interpreted.  There may be a fine line between an opinion and an order, but I haven't heard anyone use the term "executive order".
    • Cynthina
      Has anyone else been, asked to participate in the survey on transition that the VA sent out last week?   I completed the survey and was overly excited about the questions asked and the information that they are seeking from transitioning Vets. There were questions about the types of surgeries and treatments that we would like to have done as well as if the VA should pay the full expense or if we would accept out-of-pocket expenses on our own. If you happen to get the survey in the mail or e-mail, please take the time to fill it out. I believe that this information will help all of us in the future. It only took about 15 min, and they offer a $15 gift card for your time, or you can have the money donated to a VA trans support organization.
