Male-To-Female Transgender Woman Crossdressing For A Beginner Trans Woman

Recommended Posts


Okay, fellow trans guys and fellow trans girls, this is like my introduction, my coming out and my journey into being a bubbly, brazen and bold trans woman, I am, through assisting me on crossdressing, I started with panties, bras and jewellery, bras are hard to strap-on, cis girls are sssooo right, men don't know what its like to apply it and to wear it, jewellery, such as earrings are hard to maintain, especially at home with my parents, wearing woman's pants, woman's tops and stockings were sssooo right and sssooo comfortable, but I can't go full-time at home, being a girl is harder to maintain since, my parents know me as a guy, they want me to stay as a guy, maintaining myself as a girl is hard, yet I feel sssooo much more in-tune with my natural environment, I'm a calmer, sweeter and gentler individual person, I can't date guys and love find a future husband, so general hygiene, parents concern and societal pressure to conform to being a man are all aspects we as trans girls go through, I once wore a red wooly sweater and my hobo bag into the city, on a bus and other cis individual persons stood away from me, I was deeply embarassed and very hurt by the experience, I started to cry, but maintained my composure and straightened my slouching upper-body, this isn't a coherent post, but help with a procedure I should follow, clothes I should start with and what I should be like when dressed as a trans girl, kind of a stupid point to address, but mannerisms are everything to pre-estrogen supplement and to pre-testosterone blockers, I know this post is a bit of a ramble, rant and rave, but I don't know what to do to become to full-fledged lady I am, I'm going to see a gender therapist in the city, but the last time I went I was dressed as a man, I don't think the girl interviewing me took me seriously and I never followed-up, this was on either the 4th may 2016 or the 5th may 2016, possibly immediately after those dates, I bought a mesh-mash of clothes that do bit my fat waist, a blue sparkly t-shirt, a size twelve pair of black pants, various panties, all fit my genitalia/appendage, some snugger than others, fake diamond earrings, which are all broken and stockings, some are broken and some are not broken, any advice for any clothes I should buy, that would be smart-casual for a young woman entering the workplace, which will make me look legitimate in her/his eyes?, even if I have to buy them from a thrift shop, I'll bend-over backwards to start my transition, please help me, my appointment is on the 31st january 2018, sorry about my inconsistent writing/typing

If this is a Gender Therapist you are going to see, what you wear will not be nearly as important as what you do discuss with the Therapist.  What you will discuss are feelings involving more than just how it feels to wear certain clothing.  I can dress in very male clothing and still feel that my authentic self is out in the open living her life, so the clothing to me is not the big deal.  I am a survivor of surgery and love it that I do fit into and  what people can be unafraid of.  The appointment on 31 January may be the first of many unless you quit, so don't over-think things.

Hi There!

I was not required to see a gender therapist but my first appointment was an intake with a health care professional at which time I also met and I believe assessed by another nurse at that time.. I am not sure as it was a bit of a blur of emotions for me.

I had been at work so I was not really dressed however at that time I had been wearing women's jeans for some time and had both my ears pierced. After a series of questions I just started telling my story and they let me run with it as it was clear they would get what they needed to know by doing so. I was unbridled and I would have say the most authentic I had ever been in my life..

When later my assessment started with my transition doctor I purchased a new pair of nice jeans and wore a top I felt comfortable in. I was going to a trans support group before and knew what I wanted to present in because the support group was a place I could be out and it gave me the opportunity to feel comfortable on the street. It was made easier as the meeting and the clinic I go to is basically in the Rainbow district of Vancouver which is incredibly safe to present in.

In agreement with what Vicky wrote I found it was more about being authentic  (there's that word again) and telling your truth rather than trying to convince them or saying or doing what you think they want to hear.

Thank you both for replying to me, when I did go initially in early-mid 2016, I got this girl who spoke with me for about two hours, I had thought I had covered all aspects that were necessary to begin my transition, we parted, a colleague of hers drove me to this charity shop, that has a lot of trans woman shoppers, I walked in, after a bit of a tissy, I was escorted-out by an older volunteer trans woman, since I hadn't dressed in feminine attire, we spoke for at least three hours, we then parted, I felt humiliated, I hadn't even got to see the gender therapist I had sought, the one who was there was leaving, another gender therapist was being sought, yet they would take three months before adjusting to the role, I came back toward the end of 2016, I wore a wooly red sweater and my hobo bag too and from, I was terrified, now I'm trying again at the same place, it is a gender clinic, I was interviewed by one of the receptionist and was hoping to see a gender therapist, this will be my third attempt, I hope all my affairs are smooth, they too have a young trans woman's support group, I didn't want to attend, since I want to be fairly independent of most other individual persons, I might attend now, I use to wear my woman's underwear under my men's clothing, but since I hadn't been able to maintain a routine, its been difficult to maintain my hygiene standards that I maintain when I'm studying, so I've stopped crossdressing since early february 2017, I'm just babbling, but I will just come in my woman's clothing, hopefully everything will be okay, thank you ladies for replying to my post

Hi again:)

I really hope it works out for you !

You sound like you really want this to happen.

By the time I did my first intake I was already starting hair removal and when I saw my transition doctor for the first time I had switched to a very well known laser clinic looking for better results.

In some ways I think our community can display some unkind behavior to people beginning their journey and your experience at the thrift shop sounds awful!

After buying the wrong foundation shade I had a makeup clerk help me find a shade that matches my skin tone. At the time I did not state i was Trans but I do now in almost every purchase. This breaks the ice and in fact usually ends up in a goody bag full of samples including hi end scents.

I had also been shaving my legs and arms on a weekly basis for 12 years and had shaped what facial hair into female length side burns.

It sounds like you're a student so cash flow probably does not include hair removal but good foundation helps, however setting powders tend to highlight the shadow for some reason.

A matting agent helps a lot and gives a nice finish. Use a brush to remove the excess.

The routine is usually, shave and wash, use a toner and then a moisterizer that does not sting, a foundation after all this sets and then a matting lotion. By getting to know the clerks in the makeup dept you will not waste your money on stuff that clashes with your skin chemistry. in short "being out" saves cash and usually results in a better shopping experience.

Dermablend is kind of the "go to" foundation and concealer and there is a professional line as well which is what I use and it is amazing!

Pricey but it is a better value than anything else I have tried.

Remove all the gunk before you go to bed and apply a night cream.

This is what women do so its a good thing to get used to


Cheers Rachel

I am still learning but it was a video by Andrea James and Calpurnia Adams that helped the most.

      Hello Chelsea and welcome.  I think you'll find friends here who can support you.  Please join in the conversation and post your own questions or observations.  I'm glad to hear your family life has returned to order.   Having a supportive family is great.   Jani

      I'm glad your life is back to normal.  That is what we all seek.  Your family sounds as if they are really trying.  Good for them!

      FYI,   https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/20/health/arizona-trans-woman-cvs-pharmacist-prescription-trnd/index.html   The article went on to say the pharmacist no longer works there. But it took filing a report to the state agency there.    How distressing.....

      Hi Chelsea         Wow, I am happy things are finally going so well for you. I am not sure what I am just yet I was born male and know that I feel female. I am still on a road of discovery about myself. If you'd like to talk I'll listen.      Natalie

      I am an avid MTG player, even though I've slowed down on my purchases due to saving money. Anyone else play? I've bought cards recently from Dominaria, but I'd love to find people to play with, maybe via Skype? I font play the online version, because, well... $$$. I also prefer the feel of a real card over a mouse.

      Hello everyone, my name is Chelsea. I was born male but dream to be female. That dream is getting closer, but has been snagged from me a few times.    I'll keep things short, because I have a blog which describes things in more detail if you're interested. I came out back in 2013, only a few months after my son was born. I was cross dressing while my wife was at work and my son slept. I came to a realization that I wouldn't be able to hide it forever, and took the big step.   After nearly divorcing, my life is back on track and my wife and I have a five year old and a two year old. I have a great job, which isn't aware of my plans yet. Transition is only a few years away, even though I was weeks away from starting at the beginning of last year.   I was suicidal not long after I came out, and have only had thoughts a few times since, when large snags came up that made it seem like I'd never be able to transition. I'm good now though.   I came here to seek new friends and discuss things, as well as help those who are where I was five years ago. I'd really like to have a few friends who are trans or anything on the spectrum. I have some great friends (read family) who are 100% supportive, but only 2 who are under the trans community. So I am really looking for someone to be able to talk to who I can be openly honest and understanding with.

      So many things are going on now.   I'm Callum 100% of the time including at work (that was scary but it makes me feel so good! Except when my boss asks awkward questions in front of everyone and decides that I must have issues with my "downstairs" Her and a male co-worker were joking about certain parts of his body but anyway) My whole family call me Callum 24/7  there are still a few mix ups but those that are finding it difficult call me CJ (Callum James) I can finally bind!!(I only do it when I leave the house.) So happy altho I've noticed that it hurts when I take it off, I don't have any pain while wearing my binder, is this nomal? I was very very very surprised but my family bought up the idea of us going to the pride parade... I wasn't even going to mention it but they said it looks interesting and have now decided we are going to two different ones. We're going to the one at the end of this month because a distant family member goes to the same one with her gay son, shes offered to show us around and then the second one is in the place we live very excited!! The whole family is going!! Even my brothers who were very "no no no" When I joked about it when I came out to them.   I just... I don't have the words... This is amazing and I find myself worried I'm going to wake up and its all a dream. I don't wanna get too used to it in case it all goes wrong or gets wrecked (I hope this makes sense)   I did have a very strange moment and I was just wondering if anyone gets what I mean or if I'm just imaging it but as I said Callum  mode 24/7 but last week I had to go back to my female clothing and its like all my awkwardness and hating myself came back, my confidence just faded away... I could feel myself not wanting to be a part of the world and I felt so down.... Does this make sense? Now I'm back to normal and I'm the life of the party again lol What a strange life I lead.   Any thoughts folks?   *happy contented sigh*

      For the first time in all my 46 years of dressing as a girl,I have gone without wearing tights.The weather here in the Uk has been so warm for so many weeks it is not practical to wear hose.I love my tights as they make my legs look great but I have not minded going bare legged.Tights can be very uncomfortable im warm weather.Most women over here do not wear tights in this hot weather.As it is always my intention to emulate genetic women I am happy to dress like they do in the summer.Without tights I wear open toed sandles and mules.It's funny in male mode when I am out I never wear mens ooen toed sandals or flip flops and wear shoes with socks.I have never been comfortable in displaying feet.However,in female mode I do not mind doing this.Must be something to do with the duality of crossdressing.
