Welcome Genevieve!

 

I've forgotten about this thread.?...always happy to discuss underwear and clothing adventures.

 

Just today I went out to meet a friend (I have yet to come out to her bc she can be quite the gossip)?

 

I intended to meet her in my leggings(BC she's use to seeing me in them now)...but a last minute inadvertent 'accident; with a V8 Juice can left them looking as if I had had 'my virginity' or a period down in the inside thigh...?

 

...so reluctantly I went back up to change. Since I was late, I decided to pull on a long black skirt with large buttons down the front.

 

Of course I realised enroute it may have open a 'can of worms' with her.?

 

Somehow, following a bout of panic on her part (BC she could not find her phone...it was a a grocery bag), she did not observe my skirt till we were walking to the restaurant.

 

Funny thing is she and another friend (He's also a big gossip) always seem to hold back on asking the obvious...?

 

...so she remarked I had a nice skirt on that she was making an observation that my wardrobe was increasingly changing over the years.

 

My response, I am of course updating myself. We all have to.?

 

But the funniest thing is she mentioned the skirt but did not go further because I was also wearing a semi translucent light baby clue (ethnic?) cotton top with tassles and you should be able to see my nude strapless A cups if you look hard enough?

 

People.

As for me, I always hated wearing men's underwear. It just felt wrong, and gross to me. They are just ugly and uncomfortable.

That's the thing really isn't it. Women's clothes are so much prettier and varied and feel so much better.  Pair of white Y fronts, or a pair of colourful lace panties with a frill round the edges?  No-brainer really!

As with most people here I also fell in love with panties at an early age, I remember looking at the old sears catalog, or a victoria secret catalog that would get sent to the house and adoring the beautiful lingerie on the models. Eventually I got curious and checked if my mom owned any of these items, found some satin panties, tried them on and unlocked an inner battle I could never shake off from there.

 

Long story short after many years of stealing and hiding the shame, getting caught a few times and being bullied by my siblings, I moved out and I started buying my own once I figured out the correct size, still sadly purging some of the cutest lingerie I've ever owned out of shame and embarassment. currently I'm about a Male 38embarrassment. Translated to a womens 16 for most brands, theres still some weird stuff going on with those though. and I wear XL panties, sadly I'm "endowed" which can be a blessing but in terms of what I can wear in women's clothes limits me a bit, lace is fantastic, can't wear it though because I push up against it for a cheese grater type effect. Some Satin lacks stretch so I usually have to size up for that, nylon is awesome. Cotton varies.

 

My favorite panties for stretch and coverage currently are victoria secrets seemless line, the thong and bikini cuts are amazing, the hipsters work sometimes and I love the way they hug my cheeks but when I fall asleep in them I tend to fall out the sides. I actually was able to go in and try on some pairs on a slower weekday, you have to try them on over your current panties. But it allows you to try all the different cuts and styles avaliable.

 

I love nylon and satin for fabrics, and although I don't have breasts I have started to incorporate bras into my wardrobe to get used to them for when my breast might develop. The website shein.com has been great for allowing me to explore different styles without breaking the bank. I'm still pretty masculine V shaped so they carry alot of extended sized tops that I've been trying out with much success.

I started wearing out by wearing a pair of my moms panties when I was about 12, then my sister got a cute cami set and I loved slipping that on when I got a chance. I have definitely gone through phases over the years, however I have recently met an Ann Summers rep on Twitter and my lingerie collection has really grown!

 

I have decided to wear lingerie more often, and am currently sitting in the office with a bra and panties under my clothes, I know I will be in the office on my own all day! I have also recently started to wear women's nightwear to bed, and am trying to get used to wearing it.

 

I have started to move away from the ultra sexy stuff to the more wearable things, and have some very cute flowery pyjama sets!

 

Why do I do it? Because it is so much prettier and nicer and there is more variety than mens stuff. I know it doesn't always fit brilliantly and sometimes my bits fall out of the panties, but it just feels more natural to me

It was nice to re-visit this thread ... and 'underwear' is one of my favorite topics😊.  Not being socially Out yet, it's truly one of the few affirming aspects of my daily life that I can appreciate.  Normally just panties.

Wacoal is my favorite brand.  They just seem to fit my body well, and their silky/lacy combinations are very feminine.  My everyday 'go-to' are Calvin 'boy shorts' (makes sense, right?).  I never worry about the band showing under my shirt line because its the same brand logo as the men's type.  But they are SO much more comfortable than men's underwear.  Same with my sleepwear ... I will never go back to men's.

Oh, and Thanks! @Nik or Nikki for the tip on Ann Summers.  Great site!

      I'm now 3 years into HRT and have taken a targeted rather than "everyone must know" approach.  For most people I casually know, for example, I have not hidden my (gradual) changes, but have not made it a point to announce anything.  My philosophy has been "why should the burden be on me to be public, and it be widespread knowledge, about my gender identify?"   There's also a safety aspect to this.   Glad you raised this as a question, @Abigail Eleanor -- it's a good one.   Astrid

      Anecdotally, things morning my daughter used her Snapchat app to see what I would look like with a couple of different hairstyles and makeup. I showed the screenshots to o couple of ladies at work, one of whom knows I'm transgender. Not sure if the other one does (typical at my work). They both said I look prettier the way I am. Other than that, out in public - in stores or other interactions - being addressed as ma'am, men going out of their way to hold a door open for me, any number of little things go a long way towards knowing that I'm passing. Nobody has ever overtly made a reference to whether or not I'm passing.   As has been said, self-confidence in the way you present yourself goes a long way. How you dress, walk, gesture - sure. But like in the movies, act like you belong. Own it.

      Hi all, 49 and based in BC, Canada, I’m finally pursuing my transition overcoming decades of barriers and minimizing my own needs. Trans feminine and genderqueer, I’m lucky to have a supportive partner and kids at home, but a small social circle otherwise, because, introvert… So, quiet and prone to lurking, but I’m trying to break out of my shell a bit as I am craving some community.    looking forward to meeting folks here.   -A.

      Bumping this old thread because this caught my eye. This is pretty much my strategy and I'm hoping it'll work.   @tesla1026 if you spot this did you try this idea? How did it go?   Would love to hear from anyone who's tried this gradual progression technique rather that make an announcement.

      Living in Japan, I have a very different experience, so I'm curious how you guys know whether you are "passing" or not. In other words, do people overtly tell you? Or is it something more subtle? Over here, people never say anything, and to be honest, I sometimes find this frustrating because I would like a little bit of feedback about how I'm doing. Or even just tips on where I could improve. Part of the problem is language, I guess. In Japanese, pronouns are rarely used, so it's easy to avoid referring to someone's gender. People also are extremely reluctant to say anything unpleasant or mean to others. So are there any ways to get some objective feedback? (Disclaimer:  I agree that we tend to put too much emphasis on "passing," but I do want to keep improving.)

      As a non-Christian living in a heathen land (the Japanese have a very long history of rejecting Christianity), I thoroughly enjoy smashing these Christmas lights. LOL. Of course, Christmas isn't nearly as depressing now that I'm living here, but even with all the distance, the holidays usually get me down. Now if only I had some lights to smash in person!

      Thank you, guys, for all the positive comments. Japan has a long way to go, especially with updating its backward laws, but it's great to see people changing their attitudes. Over a dozen students and a handful of teachers have come up to me to tell my they saw me on TV and to voice their support. I'm as happy as I look in the video!

      I just read an announcement from the Los Angeles LGBT Center that describes the victim as one of their employees, and does mention fears of violence against people.  LALGBT Canter stuff is being circulated to all regional Centers it seems.  The woman was popular and loved.
