Yes it was a men’s t-shirt.  Honestly I usually don’t wear a shirt.  Yes I would like to wear something else in bed, but I have renegotiated or ignored enough other rules , that one shall reman sacred, at least fo now.

Sunday afternoon.  We are supposed to get storms and I had to make some adjustments for my boat before they hit. That means male work clothes so I wore a sports bra.  Definitely prevented any chafing.  
 

I am definitely having more erect nipples and some swelling behind them.  That’s where the pain is for me.  
 

I can’t decide if I’m getting general breast growth or not.  My self measurement can vary between 41 ½ and 43. The 41 was what it was all along. 43 would definitely indicate growth.

There is a fabric that uses bamboo in its makeup (I think its called Viscose?) and it is divine in its soft feel next to my skin.

 

I'm going to have to look into that! So far, I've been thrilled with the soft feel of the clothes I've gotten from Torrid...(well, except for the one chiffon top I got. I love the design, and its still softer than the guy stuff I usually wear, but it has zero stretchyness. The lack of any stretchyness kinda makes it feel like paper, only more durable. Chiffon seems much more suited to gowns than shirts.) So far my favorite material seems to be a mix of predominantly "modal" (a big improvement on rayon, apperently). So soft and light!

Erm, so I guess it's a 50/50 mix of modal and cotton.

Even though I don't openly dress feminine at home, I have totally converted to wearing women's nightwear exclusively. 
I just cannot feel comfortable anymore in men's pj's or shorts.

 

I've pretty much done that too. (Same with panties. My usual el cheapo men's briefs are just so boring, uncute and chaffier than my feminine collection. And don't even get me started on boxers!) It's kind of ironic since I never used to like wearing anything to bed other than basic underwear. Last time I wore pajamas was probably the 80's! My usual rule is "The less clothing I can manage without, the better."

 

But last year, I bought myself a couple of kinda sultry nightgowns, and one of them in particular just feels so nice to wear that lately, I've been wearing it to bed more often than not. So comfy and soothing...mmm...💖

 

Only problem is, I have enough trouble getting out of bed even in normal conditions. But now, there's all the more reason to stay in bed because I don't want to take off my nice comfy nightie and put on thick rugged, boring, neck-choking boy clothes!

Here's an article Heather, that explains what viscose fabric is (also known as bamboo rayon).  Hope you get a chance to try it sometime.  I think you will really like the feel, specially for nightwear 😊

Hello!

 

well my doctor confirmed I have started growing breasts.  His words, this is just like a teen starting.  I was hoping for that diagnosis.

 

I guess everything was primed and ready, but just needed that boost of DEP.

Now you just need to find a bra that makes them look nice. I was looking in the mirror today and the one I'm wearing is doing me NO favors.

HiJackie

 

I have been wearing Soma bras.  Originally purchased when i was flat and using breastforms.  But with some early changes, the breastforms looked unnaturally big and pushed the cups out.  So still wearing the same bra but with a push-up pad to fill in the blanks.

 

Soma are well made, soft and come in lots of styles and colors.  I have ones that hide the side fat, move it front.

 

what would be best for me now would be a padded A cup but it’s hard to find that with a 40 band size.

Yup, I own one of those. Crystal and I had a discussion with a friend of mine today about how it's hard to find things that fit tall girls. Crystal is only 5'8", but we share a shoe size. Ray, our friend who needed convincing, is 5'3". I keep TELLING her how hard it is to find stuff in my size, but...

 

At least Crystal can find bras. 😋 I own like three that have a decent fit. One's padded. It's purple and I love it.

 

Hugs!

Something I never thought about, driving. I love driving. I usually drive with one hand on the wheel. A habit I picked up driving manual. Yesterday I had to go out on a service call for work. I noticed I was having a little trouble steering, making a full circle with only one hand on the wheel. Something’s getting in the way. As I made a slow sharp turn into the driveway it hit me. It’s my girls getting in the way. Now I have to (happily) relearn some aspects of driving. Maybe no donuts or drifting corners in the snow for me this year.

Some things you never think about, until they're a thing.

I've been noticing this sort of thing lately myself.  I kinda like it.

I just realized I lost SIX INCHES off my band size between the last time I measured myself and now. Granted that still means my band is 42" but that's BETTER...

Congratulations Jackie  loosing weight and or inches is always a good thing. 

 

Liz, I'm pretty sure I've got a long way to go before that happens again.  Oh, yes that happened to me wearing breast forms once or twice.  Now, no more breast forms so its going to take time to get enough size again.

 

Jandi, yes it is a nice feeling.  Never having any prior experience with this, I just wanted confirmation that is was growth and not something else.  Can't ask my wife because she isn't happy about this.  

 

So, @Jackie C. If you don't mind, where did you find large band A cup and what brand bra do you like.

 

Hugs

They were all lucky amazon buys.

 

Technically this is a B, but it fits pretty well. T-shirt bras rock, but I need more support on the sides.

Hi @Willow -

I have a 42A for the second link @Jackie C. posted.  Glamorise brand #3010, comes in 40A also.  I LOVE that bra❣️  Its the only one I own that gives me shape and some cleavage for my non-HRT self.

I kind of feel like the odd girl out on this. I can find my size in most stores. Granted there's not a lot of choices. Feeling I'm over-all a lot smaller than I ever realized.

Link to post

I suppose it doesn’t help being 5’10” and 190. Not fat by any stretch just large   You can feel my ribs.  My sister was 5’7” and very athletic.  I doubt she ever weighed more than 135.

 

I definitely need a bra that covers the sides otherwise I end up with a very uncomfortable roll pushed out between the bra and my underarm.  If you pull that into the cup it helps fill the volume.  Just reach in with your fingertips and gently lift your breast up an pull the side growth in.  I always measure a size or two bigger than I can actually fill.

I can find my size in most stores also. The other day I went to a store called Soma I was actually fitted. That was great lol. They have you put on a sports bra with sensors on it and it measures you. They told me I was a 40c but I ended up with a 38d and they fit great and it gives me a little bit of room to grow since they definitely not stopped.

 I need bra help. I been staring to have trouble keeping the straps up. I tried tightening them but I can't go very far before it starts pulling the whole thing up. I'm not spilling out of the cups at all but the thing I noticed is the apex of my bra(s) is about 1-1/2 inches below an imaginary line between my armpits. I don't know if it should be this low. Google has been completely useless. I feel if the straps were closer together or the apex was higher the problem would go away. I'm thinking I need to go up a cup size. Anyone?

This used to happen to me a lot early in my transition. I wasn’t quite big enough for an B cup and my breast tissue was not filling the cups enough. Of course, all the nice bras I wanted didn’t come in A cup sizes. Eventually when I grew enough to fit into most B cups, the issue disappeared for the most part. But adjusting the straps never helped much and it started to pull up too much from under my breasts if I did.

 

You might just try some of these until they fill out your current bra. Alternatively, you might order half cup sizes through a company that sells them like ThirdLove

Thanks @Susan R. You understand exactly what I'm going through. The straps on my bras can be hooked together but then they are too close and you can see them unless I wear a crew or v-neck. Those strap holders may be the answer. I've looked around thirdlove. I heard they're really good and I should give them a chance.

      I've had days like that. I've also had days when the only reason I got dressed is because I needed to wash my pjs. Today is my one hoodie and a pair of boot-cut jeans. I haven't showered since Thursday and I feel gross. Definitely showering before bed tonight.   Hugs! 
    • ElizabethStar
      I'm still in my pj's. It's 5pm and there's no point in changing.

      Yes, Ma'am, it is wonderful. I think the tgAA meeting is one of the best groups I've ever attended. Literally international, "local" members from all over the US, ages from 18 to ... um ... me and maybe a few others, different takes on their Programs. I'm lovin' it, and I'm sitting here dressed for goin' online in company, j ust killin' time waiting for the 3pm PST/6pm where it's already getting dark. See ya' soon, I hope.  ~~Hugs comin' right back at'cha, from Lee~~

      Hi,   we went to the beach today.  See below.     We also went to the recycle center.  I spent the morning using my lawn tractor bagging leaves and pine needles then loading them into my utility trailer.  I like @Jandihave overdone it.  I had planned to do more tomorrow and take another load but I’m having second thoughts.   @KymmieL I am tired of living as two people also.  I am trying to work on that, sort of one friend or group of friends at a time.  It’s a slow process but it’s the best I’ve got.  good luck with the transfer.   Willow

      Oh HAPPY DANCE!  I just got invited to go on a ladies weekend to Savannah GA in May!  The group is mostly people I only know through social media, it's a group called Ladies Of Football which I was invited to when I came out on Facebook under my Miami Dolphins Superfan personna.  One of the girls even invited me to be her roommate for the weekend to reduce costs.  They all know my Trans status.  I can't wait. There will be about 20 of us crazy football fans from all over the country so we have a built in conversation starter .here are two ladies that I least have met from my football game days but that was from before coming out. My wife is super supportive and encouraged me to go. SHe does ladies retreats/getaways a couple times a year and knows I've always wanted to go to one.

      @Jackie C. I hope I get an ally judge, but if I don't, I'm going to look into legal aid for a low income lawyer that will be able to help me. Thank you for the advice.     XOXO Holly!

      Happy St. Patrick's day!   Also happy second birthday. May your treatment be everything you hope it will be and more besides.   Hugs!

      I finally have an appointment with a VA endo..... March 17 blood work is in, letter if intent is in.... ready to start HRT!!!
    • Jackie C.
      The only real reason is that you've encountered a trans-hostile judge who has decided that they have something to prove today. I was fortunate in that my judge is an ally (and a friend of my attorney). While they're uncommon, they do exist. If you encounter one, you appeal the decision and try to get it overturned. For that, I'd get an attorney.   Hugs!
    • HollyNoel
      Thank you @Jackie C.. I'm going to go to that site and have a look around. Thank you so much.   @Charlize I really hope it goes that smooth, Ive no idea what to do if the judge says no. But then again why would they say no. I'm not changing my name for any other reason than to have a name that fits my better.   @LusciousTheLock I mean Tamsyn. I'm glad you got to sign your true name, I bet it felt great. I'm going to have to get new glasses also, I to am looking forward to getting my first female glasses. It's something that I've been thinking about for months. I'm not afraid of getting female glasses, I just have to get the funds together to afford them, that's why I haven't made the move yet.   @Jackie C., @Charlize, and Tamsyn, After I see that you all have done this, I know that I can take that step and legally and publicly be Holly. I know it's scary and not impossible.   Thank you girls XOXO Holly!
