Suggestions for a tall girl

Hi all!!!

 

so I’m on the taller side (6’2”) and proportionally weighted - I’m between 190 and 195 depending on the day. (I’d love to get down to like 160 but that’s for a different forum, lol. I’ve thought myself a cross dresser until recently so I’ve bought clothes to be worn in private and hence there are clothes I WISH I could pull off (short dresses, high heels, etc). But as I come to admit to myself that I am trans I’m wondering about what clothes are best for a tall woman like myself. I love dressing to the 9’s but I know that running errands doesn’t call for that though I still want to accentuate my assets.  Lol.  Any advice?

If you are able to thrift shop that is good. I've noticed other woman and their choice of clothes and found causal jeans, nice unisex tops and of course the right undies work very nice and over time I have been working on my style now that I no longer am in the hiding and dressing phase and I want to be just a reasonably well dressed lady. I found great deals at Walmart as well. It toof a while to get me right sizes and Amazon is good for helping there as well as just googling. I am 5' 10" so not exactly petite myself. I try to find clothes that DON'T accentuate my large shoulders. 

 

Good Luck and keep us posted as you delve into your new shopping. Maybe supply photos if you wish. There is a nice thread going called "What are you wearing today" and many ladies respond to that. I don't sadly because I'm not exactly feminine looking material, but that's okay - I'm happy with who I am finally and that is more important.

Ditto thrift stores and not accentuating large shoulders!

 

If we can lean out, I think we do better at passing as a lean female.  Not the case with all mtfs, but alot of us look a little burly/manly with extra lbs on.

 

As far as style, yeah, if you want to be public, even if you're not stealth level, I think there's a certain level of passing acceptability, if you display taste.  Women judge each other, and most people don't understand when a middle aged assigned-male--at-birth person starts expressing their style, coming from a pre-adolescent place. 

 

I (we?) want to be sexy and cute and recieve attention for it. 

 

 

In reality, I'm wearing alot of jeans, leggings, and shorts, because that's what most of the other females are doing...

 

Hide them shoulders ;)

 

Bless you

I have a few years on you and was your height.  If its any consolation you may lose a couple inches as you age.  I'm at an even 6' now.    There is a Goodwill in Seabrook that always seems to have a nice selection. Occasionally you can find nice slack or jeans in the correct length.   If you are handy, I've taken pieces that fit nice but are short and hemmed them into capris.  Same for shirts, but three quarter sleeves are a thing so not an issue.

 

A lot of brand's have Tall sizes just not in the stores (any longer).  I prefer to shop in person to ensure fit but online works.  I've had good luck with Banana Republic at the Kittery Outlet's.

 Maddee's advice is spot on!  We can tend to dress too young in looking to make up lost time but save that for the bedroom not in public.

When it comes to sliming shoulders try wearing v-necks.  That works for me unlike a scoop or boat neck.

There's a couple fashion threads you can look through and a bunch of us post pics of our outfits on this thread. You can get some ideas there since most of us are above average femme height.

      I remember tentatively stepping out, looking around and behind me as I went back in. Keep up the small steps. They'll turn into bigger and bigger ones as you gain confidence. Now I feel like I stick out like a sore thumb if I'm not dressed as me.

      You look awesome.

      Still don't drink coffee. My normal suppliers of caffeine, C-C & MD, are not presently at hand, but my vitamin water is. Had a couple of emotional pick-me-ups today (in addition to those I got here), and they were much needed on an in-person level. First, I went to return an item at Kohl's (only in person returns), which worked out nicely. The nice lady at the return counter was teaching another nice lady the ins and outs of the process. Thrice, she unhesitatingly referred to me as "she."    Secondly, as I was on my walk, I ended up passing three women, two maybe 30ish or so, the other a teen. We greeted as I passed, then one of them said something about legs. Then the other adult one said, "She's got legs." The word "legs" drawn out for emphasis. Yeah, that perked me up!

      You are beautiful and I agree men can be really insensitive pigs!

      Thanks. My hair lady, and a former boss also said the same thing about the top. As for him saying he's sorry. He's a manly man. I know im never going to get a sorry from him. Even I knew as a man. If I said some thing stupid to woman in my past life. Hey everyone dose. I would say im sorry. As for saying I'm ugly. I can take being called ugly. I'm not that sensitive, but when I'm being compared to two men doing drag. That is what pissed me off.  Yep. I worked with a lot of men in my life. There has been many times. That they have said stupid stuff, and I have said how are you married.  Can be?  He really not a bad looking man. Again not my type. He dose treat woman with respect for the most part. I'll give him that. Like you said. He just says stupid things a lot. I also know he dosn't care about gay/trans stuff. I've know him well enough to know he could care less about a person's sexual or gender choices. He hasn't even known about my transition for a year yet, and we really don't talk about. As we don't see eachother in person. Because he's a trucker. I think if he saw me in person. It might be a lot different l. I still have male friends because I need a bit of testerone in my life. As munch as my female friends have tried to be into my interests. They just aren't into cars, or other male interest. Plus if a male friend want to hang out. It means a i can wear sweats, a over sized t shirt, and no make-up. Hanging out with the girls means going out in public. A hour of prep time, etc.

      Yes, thank you. Sorry, should have said that originally.

      Check your local LGBTQ+ center. I gave mine to a friend who donated them to the community where they live. They were much too nice to throw out.   Hugs!

      I’ve been wearing a bra with false breasts for almost a year, but i too have started to feel uncomfortable due to my breast growth. Yay!   So i’ve switched to some bra pads instead. It doesn’t feel as heavy or “natural”, but the lack of pressure is a definite plus.   Now I just need to find an organization to donate my old breasts to. Anyone know one? 😀   mara

      @JaycieI was in the Boston area for about 10 years with my previous (#3) wife. My job for 37 years was overwhelmingly male dominated. During those 10 years, my best friend was a woman. She came out to Chicago a few years after I left Boston to be the "Best Man" at my (most recent) wedding. Years ago by, and we exchange Christmas cards and occasional birthday cards. Sadly, I haven't told her that I'm getting divorced and transitioning. Lack of courage. Soon. Same for the friend who cut me off 5 years ago - maybe.    Funny, it only occurred to me as I wrote about the past regarding my chosen middle name. Renee means reborn, and that was my conscious reason for adopting it. I realized that, subliminally, it was because of Renee Richards.   @MmindyAgain, thank you from the bottom of my heart, and God bless you. Hugs to all at TGP.❤️

      Hmnn, worth a shot I mean using that angle [thank you] but issue with him is its his way and his way only, there is no compromising. I will try your way next time the topic comes up and will report back.

      I hope it feels really good to know that your wife supports you as she does. That she sees you as more than a collection of body parts and as a person who desires to be more themselves.

      You look amazing 💖
