To Stuff or Not To Stuff (Part 1)

Recommended Posts

Guest Kyu

So i was on a camping trip last night (that is another post.) and was very open to the group about myself. Oddly enough the question that seemed to crop the most interest was "do you stuff your bra when you go out into the public?" I had to tell the i never tried it, considering i haven't been out in public yet. But it peeked my interest none the less.

So this morning after a bit of self pampering i decided to run an experiment. Does stuffing help you look good? Luckily for me i picked myself a bra a few days back to become accustom to wearing them. After doing my research, i decided to share my findings for anyone who finds themselves asking the same question. So without further ado i present 'The Art of Stuffing!' by Kyu.

PLEASE NOTE: this is purely a cheap alternative to breast forms, as as such will not feel realistic. This is purely for aesthetics and your cover will be instantly blown should someone move in for that perverted groap. Sorry girls, but i'm going for looks right now.

Ok so to do this i tried four different styles of clothing, i'll explain the steps i took to test this theory over the first style.

So the fist style i chose is tightly fitting clothes, for this i used my white dress which hugs my body nicely. The hypothesis is, the tight fit should grip the overall shape of the bra giving the illusion of breasts.

First thing i needed was a benchmark so i modeled with no bra, so you could see the difference each step made.


As you can see i'm very flat chested. Now it's time to change that!

I'm using a 34A bra, because that size seems to fit my natural chest area without leaving a obvious, floppy gap.


Just the addition of the bra alone begins to give the illusion of breasts, but needless to say i still look very flat chested. To give it some fill i carefully stuffed it with a pair of socks (one sock for each side.), i was insanely carefull and attempted to replicated the shape of actual breasts. Here are my results.


This took some time to replicate, but the results were really shocking. I was able to replicate the shape of breasts with a self devised stuffing technique, which i will try to upload another time. There is one flaw that becomes more noticeable the bigger you, which is the lack breast skin that is not covered. Luckily for me, the dress covered that are and i didn't go large enough to make it noticeable.

From here i moved onto something more lose, so i threw on a baggy t-shirt. i'm not even going to post a picture of un-stuffed, the only way this will work is if the shirt is tight fitting; otherwise nothing can be seen. Stuffing however is a completely different story.


(i don't know why this picture didn't shrink like the rest) The shirt hangs off the bra nicely, giving off a nice illusion.

For the fourth i tried a low cut lose top, if you wish to wear one, either just wear the bra un-stuffed or don't wear the bra at all. This turned out hideous, just take my word for it.

(Part 2)

Finally i tried a more fitting t-shirt that covered the chest completely.


un-stuffed look's really nice with this top, the way the bra hugs the body is enough to pass you off as a natural flat chest. Now for the stuffing.



this was by far my best attempt, because it was my last and i got the hang of it. But out of all four tests, covering the chest gives unbelievable results! i was shocked and amazed at this attempt, which was by far my favorite.

In conclusion!

Stuffing can give some unbelievable results if you are crafty with it, but it's not a miracle tool and it is no where near breast forms. If you want to show of your chest then get a pair. But stuffing is a great alternative. It comes with it's downsides though, one being the stuffing i used will not move at all, it's just too light. So it won't get realistic bouncy movement with your body, but it will contort with your chest IF you are wearing a nicely fitting bra. It's no biggie, just try to avoid running. The biggest worry is the feel, it is no where near realistic to the touch. Also if it misplaces itself, it WILL be noticeable. But apart from that this is a cheap alternative to forms, and could really save you some cash on that night out you have been planning.

So i guess it's time to awnser the question, to stuff or not to stuff?

Granted i was pleased with the results from stuffing and just wearing a bra in general. Stuffing is a suprising weapon to any MTF's arsenal and should not be overlooked. But it can't be done with every outfit so choose wisely.

Also try to keep time in mind, stuffing takes some time and a few attempts to get right. Just keep in mind these two questions, "Do you have enough time to stuff?" and "Can you go somewhere to adjust it, should it go astray?"

If you like what you see and want to try for yourself, then here are a few tips i found.

  • If you are going to use socks be sure none of it is hanging out of the bra. This will leave unattractive lumps in your clothing and will make your 'breasts' look uneven.
  • Stuffing takes time to get right, with every attempt it becomes natural (rather quickly) but it takes time none the less.
  • It's difficult to judge without a mirror, just keep that in mind.
  • A badly stuffed bra is a bigger give away than a flat chest, be sure it's right before you go flaunting your new found pair of breasts.
  • Try to avoid open chested tops, if you try it you will soon learn that pokieoutiesockboobs are NOT attractive. If you want the illusion with these kind of clothes, just wear a shaped bra DON'T stuff.
  • If you want to make it a regular thing, then practice practice practice! It will become natural and save you half the time to prep.
  • Keep a mirror handy and give yourself a check over whenever you go to the loo, always good to make sure they aren't lopsided.
  • AVOID BIG BOOBS AT ALL COSTS! The ONLY way you will pull this off, is if A. they suit your body shape and B. you hide your chest. Just remember big boobs draw attention from pervs (as bad as it is to say it's true), and it's not always good attention. As an MTF i find it's not always good to attract too much attention to yourself; if anything it's looking for trouble.
  • Lastly DON'T fidget with them! If it's not broke don't fix it! You may even end up making it worse. If push comes to shove then go somewhere privet to readjust yourself comfortably.

I think that's all the bases covered, tell me what you think of my research. If you like it i may follow it up with ideal items to stuff with (as opposed to socks :P) and how to make them move/feel as realistic as possible. I hope this will be of use to others who have the same questions!

If you would like to see all the pictures i took from this experiment you can find the album here: http://s1152.photobu...tuffing%20Test/

PASS: stuffing

Hope you enjoy! (sorry Mods for the stupidly long post!)



(sorry if i don't look my best. i WAS getting in the bath, then i had this idea.)

I'm a bit on the husky side, so I use breast forms (to a 44C...looks a lot better than nothing or just a padded bra). If I were skinny, I might be ok, but I don't like having boobs that don't come out past my stomach! :)

Well, I can recommend what I'm currently using.


For quite a while now I've been using these foam breast forms (in fact I just ordered two more sets, as the one pair I own are many years old now). And they don't cost much at all.

I have also fallen in love with the Genie Bra (also worn in these pictures). They include a thin shaping shield which can be removed through a slot in the fabric of the bra. I leave them in, otherwise the nipple is too obvious.

That slot in the fabric also means that a foam breast form can be inserted right into the bra itself. This helps ensure that the forms don't show, move around, or fall out.


I'm 37" without, and 42" with -- using a size L genie bra (their sizing is goofy).

I feel really good about how I look in these, and confident too. Hope that helps!

There are a lot of things to stuff a bra with. Search DIY breast forms lots of info. Ive seen or tried most of them. Everthing including birdseed, beans and sand. For tight tops I prefered triming them, making the nipples bigger and glueing on. Also, padded panties would realy look good on you.

This may sound nuts but i have found that stuffing with Tights works really well and provides a good look just something to try if your interested. also a great way to recycle worn out pairs

Great idea! I think they'd fit pretty well tucked into a bra with a pocket. And they might even launder reasonably well.

In my personal opinion, since you're so skinny, I actually like the unpadded look better with the tight white dress. I mean it gives a little bit of shape but since you're so skinny, it looks okay and I don't think anyone would expect anything above a B on you. Padded bras might give a little extra oomph, too.

Yeah, i don't really like the look of anything over a B. None the less, thanks for the great replies everyone!

Whatever works best - just try to look natural for your age group.

I did it for years and years. Nothing wrong with looking like your target gender!

      Here we go again Carolyn!!! You throw meaningful articles out there that usually result in really good  debates, thank you !!!   I have read two books by Jen Boylan and she is as real as they get. I also like that she's from Maine !!   The listed article really hit home while reading a quote from Kristen Beck, “What you wear, what color you are, your religion, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity has no basis on whether you are a criminal or not.”  Yes indeed. I support Eric Snowden and the courage it took for him to expose unprecedented abuses of power by the United States. His motives were clear, his intentions were more than obvious. Perhaps I still need more understanding,  but I have yet to wrap my head around the motives and intentions of the information released by Chelsea Manning...??? All I do know is that there is a sea of negativism surrounding her  and now her unqualified run for public office.   I spend hours every week at the  VA hospital attending LGBT group meetings. The horrible comments and ridicule I see on a weekly basis toward our transgender Vets walking the halls is unmatched by what I have experienced in public. A good friend straightened me out on this. He says the VA is filled with  right wingers. Yes it appears this is true. Since this whole Chelsea Manning running for Senate thing started it has gotten even worse, trust me!   I have posted on this site previously  that I merely wish Manning could be grateful for being free and go live a quiet, happy  and public free life. Jen Boylan echos this. I oh- so- admire the piss and vinegar Manning has but she is in fact a convicted felon embodied in a sea of perceived public hatred.   Like the hateful Vets at the VA, I don't think we will ever change their minds about accepting trans humans. . Not in this lifetime. Say what you will but it is my true belief that we need positive examples. Though she's not my favorite but Kristen Beck is right up there. Retired Navy Seal that served with honor and distinction. The author of this article, Professor Jennifer Boylan is another. This list goes on and on, doctors, lawyers, politicians, successful entrepreneurs . I support Chelsea manning as a trans woman and human being. I do not support her for a  Senate run, and her public exposure merely adds fuel to the fire of hatred already directed toward innocent trans people like me and you ......   In the brutal world of public opinion there is a saying; "Its not what you are but what people think you are."  I love and deeply respect our transgender community. You will never find such courageous people as represented in the transgender world. We proudly serve in  every profession, military branch, labor force and service industries. We never ask for recognition or a pat on the back, all most of us want is to be allowed to live our authentic lives free of murder, rape and ridicule.  Is Manning helping that cause?? What is your opinion??   Sincerely,   Tess

      Thanks for your thoughts and especially this, Laura Beth. Many of us may have faced clues along the way and didn't understand them until much later in life. It wasn't until I came out to myself, with the help of a therapist, that the confusion I faced throughout my life finally made sense. And yes, the future is brighter.   Gwen

      Ms. Boylan has such an honest rational voice.  Manning's candidacy may or not be helpful for our community.  It may go nowhere but she does have every reason to be angry. In my opinion did little more than was done by reporters in the past who were actually able to report what they saw during Viet Nam rather than only reciting what they were told by the military.   Many may not agree with me about that and that is fine but allowing us to see some of the atrocities of the war was in some ways an heroic, if illegal, act.  That being said i'm certainly not sure that makes her any more qualified for office than being a slumlord in NY does.   Hugs,   Charlize

      One of the great advantages of going to a therapist was having an opportunity to remember and share a lifetime of experiences similar to those you describe.  Somehow being open and honest was a step i needed in finding the strength and confidence to follow my path.   Thank you for reminding me of my past as well as sharing your own.   Hugs,   Charlize

      It all gets a bit complicated at times   Here it it a standing joke about not having to see someone's medical records to know their issues, just sit in the reception at the doctors surgery and listen to the receptionist! Not really funny, but it happens a lot.   For me it is a daily thing as I am not planning a namechange etc in the near future, but only occasionally gets too much. Its always going to be easier wth one name and one gender.   Tracy

      Hi, Although the basis of my meditation come from a book on Buddism the spiritual aspect of my life is based around being thankful for what I have and for the people I know and to participate with that which is around me the basis of which is understanding and practicing love. i like Buddism a lot but prefer if people use their own words when conveying something.  If I had the determination and attention span to read the Quoran and find a Master I would say I would align myself with Sufism but that's not going to happen so I have to be content being an Abrahamist with Big Book leanings. This is not my own words but sort of in fact. Love God (your version) and treat others with kindness and love:) The rest is commentary. Reading this made things easy for me. In light of the simplicity I feel that spirituality should not possess an inaccessible quality to it.  Why I like Sufism is the belief that "love is the highest station of the soul."
