Padded Bra

Recommended Posts

Samsara

So I am attending my first Transgender Woman's Group meeting tonight. I'm super excited and wanted to dress feminine (jeans, boots, and sweater). I don't normally dress in a feminine manner when I go out, mostly just jeans and boots. I was thinking of wearing a bra underneath the sweater. I don't have any natural breast development at this point, but I have a padded bra that gives me the look of having small breasts. My worry is that this will look unnatural or fake. Any thoughts?

Hi!  Great news that you're going a support group meeting!  Go ahead and wear your bra.  Its not fake to do so.  Adjust the straps to give a natural look and you'll be fine.  Have fun!

Hi Sara,  This is great news regarding your going to this new group.  I attended one for years back in the day and I'd be attending that group right now if I didn't live so far.  I hope you have a wonderful time at your new group.  Some of my fondest memories of my life were attending that group, meeting others, making friends and getting great information regarding what my journey was all about.  In fact, I haven't felt that accepted until signing up here.  

When I attended this group, I would'nt have have been caught dead without a bra.  You'll fit right in with your padded bra.  You'll see for yourself once you arrive.

 

Best of luck,

Susan R🌷

Thank you both for the encouragement. I'm really excited for the meeting, but also more than a little nervous. I suffer from social anxiety disorder so anytime I meet new people I'm a huge bundle of nerves but I feel a little more relaxed now.

Don't worry.  Everyone in the room will have been in your same place at one time.  There will be no shame or guilt.  Being you is what its about.  I hope for a good report in the in the morning!

I used to be that way myself but after attending a couple of PFLAG meetings the nerves gave way to enjoyment. Just as Jani said, no one is going to judge you. I now look forward to meeting new people.

 

Hugs,

Brandi,

 

Thank you for the kind words. The meeting was a great experience. I met some interesting people; one woman lives in the same part of the city as me and another lady was also into TTRPGs (table top role playing games). It was fun to geek out about shared interests. It was so comforting to listen to people share about their experiences, both the good and bad.

Hi Sara,  I'm glad it was a nice experience for you.  Next time have all the anticipation & excitement without any of the worry.  For me, these meeting became a safe haven...especially when I was just starting out.  I bet you look forward to the next one.  Thanks for the good news!

      The movement has informed some of my work as well. Welcome. TA

      Welcome secondlook! You're among friends here! TA

      I'd like that. And could use an adventure for a change.   Jackie, that's funny about the pants, since I tend to spend much of my studio time in a t-shirt and panties.   TA

      It's a thought. But I'd really have to relocate to Maine. Although the West coast is also appealing. I spent 3 years in San Francisco. TA

      I am going to drop some hints to make sure he isn't playing with my heart. I might ask him this week or next week to have sushi like he wanted. (And it's cheap >:D)    Also I will keep you all posted!
    • ToniTone
      It seems pretty clear he likes you. And you like him. I agree with A Dillon, y'all should just try going out! Just a casual coffee or lunch. Take it slow, you know?   Anyway, this is too cute! Please keep us posted 💕   ~Toni
    • BEAN_CHILD
      wow thank you guys so much!
    • ToniTone
      Oooooo both y'alls poems are deep and brooding, and they have a nice flow. I love it!
    • luke_b
      same here as Aidan, friends are always welcome!
    • Aidan5
      Since here soon he is going to be moving near me, we plan on hanging at the park, he made me shake on it, how cute
    • Aidan5
      oH I forgot to mention!!!   On the bus ride we pass by a mall and he saw a Trappers, (A sushi place) and he asked me if I wanted to go there with him,  "That will be our first date."    ANd earlier he was saying "Haha when you joke around flirting because you are afraid of being rejected"
    • A. Dillon
      Listen: this is not hints, this is essentially asking you out. You should say something!! He is scheduling a kiss with you, kind of very much implying that you will be dating. Cuddling, hand holding, this all sounds like you're already dating! I think that maybe you should suggest going somewhere with him, like a date of sorts. That way you can get to know each other in a more open environment, and will really have a chance to talk about life and stuff. If your parents would let you, being able to just go to lunch with him alone or something like that would be great.

      Yea,i kind of like the movement,just the idea of having magic just casually appear as part of reality kind of fits my life as i am also schizoaffective,so its like a theme for me,plus whenever i think of the idea in film i think of my neighbor totoro which i also love, i dont know thats just how i understand it anyway from what little i know, so thanks tammy!
