Im a trans girl pre transition looking for some indoor clothing shopping ideas.


Recommended Posts


Hi im a trans girl and im planning on doing most of my Social transition in the year before my first appointment. I want to start collecting my wardrobe and i want to first start getting used to wearing female clothes indoor. Im looking for shopping tips, cause i have no idea what to get exept bras and underwear. Please keep in mind that im more of a jeans kind of girl. Im looking for things that are not that expensive and are comfy. And maybe are able to make my booty pop out. I would love to be able to show at least a bit of a female figure. Im looking for ideas on top wear and bottom-wear. For bras i think i will start with a croptop type bra and for underwear i dont really know, i dont feel comfortable with tucking right now. I hope you girls have some ideas and tips.

Women's clothing that isn't expensive? Do they have that in the Netherlands? Over here women's clothing costs at least twice what men's clothing does.


I'd advise browsing around in resale shops and whatever the Netherlands equivalent of Goodwill is. (Um, Goodwill is a charity organization that sells deeply discounted used goods to people in need.) See what you think is pretty and then go home and try it on. Your style will develop on its own as you get a better feel for what looks good on you. Take a supportive partner (romantic partner, good friend, family member) with you if you can. A second pair of eyes is always welcome and makes the experience more fun.


Happy hunting!

If you don't like tucking, look into a "Gaff" to wear with anything that is "tighter". You can get underwear that has some padding for the hips and cheeks that can give you a bit if shape.  Try not to "hyper-feminize", most women you see every day are wearing basic comfortable clothes that are just cut different for women.  Basic women's tops can be bought online. Skinny jeans work if you are a thinner build.  The larger waist sizes tend not to fit "our curves-or lack of"   If ordering online- USE THE SIZE GUIDE" sizes can vary in a big way but if the guide has measurements then you will be more likely to get something close to fitting. Make sure you can return online orders.  Buy a basic knee length skirt to learn how to sit and move in a dress/skirt and not expose yourself ;)

Don't get "lacey" underwear ot thongs.  They don't feal good on male anatomy.  There are some very feminine 'french cut' or high waisted panties that still hold things realtively well.

And, as I always seem to say- Jackie's right   Second hand/thrift stores offer a cheap way to find your style. And shopping with a girl friend is lots of fun.

You really need to go to the women's department and try out what you like. I initially took my daughter to the girls department when she was still living as a boy. They were very helpful and the outfits fit her. I initially got her 3 outfits that day. She did wear then around the house for a  few month before she fully transitioned. It always helps do do your hair if you can, that is what I did with her so she can fully make sure this is what she  wants adn give her a full feel for living a a girl before she did it in public.

Hi, in Europe I've used websites like Venca or Zalando. They have clothes in all price ranges, including big sales quite often. I've purchased 4 or 5 items for less than 30 euro. I avoid clothes sites that ship from China or outside the EU, due to long waiting times and the extra cost of import taxes.


Like you, I'm finding my style. I'm thin, so skinny jeans work well. I also like long shirts and blouses - they're comfortable, easy to combine with other clothes and cover the zipper area. Long cardigans are also nice. I'm not into tucking either so I use "compression underwear": it's women underwear that holds tight and (some of them) slightly push up your butt. I don't know if "compression underwear" is the right name in English (or Dutch!)


For shoes, I go for sandals or sneakers - and I'm a fool for high heels too!

Here in the states it's "Shapewear"

Depends. 😉


Shapewear is it's own thing. Most of the underwear I own has extra elastic to keep my tummy out of sight. I'd like to get that corrected surgically, but one disaster at a time, right?

      It's interesting to read this. Apart from the stuffed animals I have the only thing I can think of is my deliberate cultivation of a childlike attitude to learning such that I can learn and accept new ideas more readily; ie I try to avoid blinkered views and similar restrictions which often come with age. In that I have no age bias and fear of appearing childish (in the keeping up appearances sense).   Your last comments on baby talk do remind me of an advert for sweets / candy over here currently which has two policemen in a police car dubbed with childrens voices. People tend to love or hate it. I tend to mimic them and similar but more my sense of humour though.   Tracy

      It's pretty clear that Republican state governments don't fear, or even take notice of, the Biden administration's policies. It looks like the Republican State governments feel they have to move quick while they still have a 6-3 scotus conservative majority until the Dems pack the courts (within the next year probably) to even things up a bit.

      Totally relate. I was locked up in a psychoward ran by Mormons when I was 12-17 years old...sex was used as currency. ...Feel kinda lucky some days that I didn't really know I was being raped. ...Other days I just feel sick and wanna blow my brains out. ...Most days though, I just want....revenge. I guess I kinda had an epiphany one day: I'm not the one who deserves to die. ...Neither are you.  Hang in there. This too shall pass. *big hugz*

      Kimber, I agree with Jackie, your parents were very accepting and supportive. Especially given that society was so different and so much less accepting back 25 years ago. Your parents loved the real YOU so much. It is a wonderful story.   Life would’ve been so much easier for many of us here if our parents could embrace our real identities. I am so glad yours embraced and accepted you so unconditionally. It sounds like an amazing experience.   I’m so sorry to hear that you had lost two siblings within a year back then. That must have been such a difficult period of your life. I can’t even imagine experiencing that kind of loss in such a short time period. We all have different crosses to bear. No journey through life is an easy one.   *Hugs* Susan R🌷

      This is a one of your colors Linda Marie. Your dress really looks nice with the shoes too. Hard to match outfits that close without a large collection. You can NEVER have too many pairs.😉

      I don’t wanna go back to a mental hospital. That place still terrifies me. Even more bad memories.

      Mostly just the erotic variety that involved a boy being forcibly feminized then diapered and treated like a baby girl lmao. I'm a freak lol. =P

      If you are having this bad a time, it may be necessary for you to go to a hospital or an urgent care provider and see if they can provide you with some medication to help your anxiety about the memories.  You may have to cut your vacation short to deal with this, or maybe it is the vacation environment triggering you.  Please go and get some professional help before you feel compelled to hurt yourself.

      Looking lovely LM. Kaltia Bras are a constant problem with me too. Lacey bras are so pretty but the lace chaffs my skin. Sport bras I wear a lot just because the seem to hold everything in place just fine. My nice bras I save for special occasions.

      I can’t stop remembering. I’m on vacation. I need to relax. I want it to stop. I can’t forget about what he did. I keep trying to make myself forget with things like overdosing, but it doesn’t work anymore. The memories are so loud. I don’t know how to stop this.
