I read a blog by a trans woman roughly the same measurement as me and I’m sold already on it!

Thats going to be my starter corset and then I’ll probably move down a size. Probably will be a late Xmas present to myself. ?

Think of it as an early Xmas present to yourself! ;)  It's only 363 more days.

Lol. Potato tomato lol. Either way I’m going to be excited about it. 

 

I’m waiting for my replacement card to get here so I can order it. I’m not going to use my bank card for online purchases and these temp card only load once. What’s weird is I already got an email telling me to hurry up and activate the permanent card but it’s not here yet!?!

 

So yeah, early Xmas present

Just keep in mind that because of how we were born, a normal corset may not properly fit like it would on a cis female and you may have to wear it upside down. 

If you're on Facebook, Orchard has a (closed/private) facebook group for fans with bunches of people who can help with fit questions, wear questions, and sizing questions. I know a few members from when I was in the group myself. Also it's a welcoming community for LGBT. I know at least one person who works at Orchard is in the group.

This is something I never seriously considered but it really accentuates those curves...at least on the model it does..lol. They seem very reasonably priced too.  I had assumed they were much pricier than $70US.  I think it's best I get down to my target weight before I attempt to ask about sizing but it sure does look enticing.

I’m just going to get the recommended size which sinches down to a 28 waist. It might not be there at the beginning but with a little work it will get there. Plus I heard it gives you a sexy walk so I’m all for being forced to swing my hips.

Orchard is great but it’s something I’ve got to get much later after I get used to a simpler corset.

      Hello, Grubsky, and welcome to Trans Pulse.  My apologies for taking so long to approve your post.  I guess we're a bit short handed tonight in staff.   There is no one right answer to your questions, hon.  IMHO, a gender specialist is often preferable to a general therapist, if only because they would prob have connections to other resources in the community that trans folk need to follow their path, such as trans friendly doctors, hair removal techs, local clinics and such.  But as long as a regular therapist seeks out the appropriate information or knows how to find resources, they can do fine.  That's especially true if you are already comfortable with them.  It's pretty much up to you.  Starting over can be time consuming and intimidating.   I would be guided by your therapist as to what issues to tackle first.  None of us know you and none of us are therapists, so I'm not qualified to say what is more important, only that they are all important in one way or another.  Boy, what a wishy washy answer that was.      As far as whether and how to tell your current therapist, please don't worry about it.  The honest truth is always your best bet, and the sooner the better.  They would probably prefer an e-mail to not telling them anything, but if you can muster the courage, I think you'd be better off telling them in person.  Having a dialogue works much better that way.   You're welcome to provide an intro in the Intro Forum.  Short or long it doesn't matter.  Take care and good luck.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Wow, I'm so impressed and envious!!!

      I'm fed up with doctors these days. So I missed a "virtual" visit I had scheduled last week. Now I'm worried that the doctor won't refill my prescriptions unless I reschedule my appointment. And the psychiatric nurse practitioner I see for my depression did the same thing. I was about to run out of my medication and the pharmacy tried calling to get a refill but I was told to call the office. The nurse said that she would only give me a single refill because I hadn't seen her since January. I would need to make an appointment with her to get further refills . I mean, if there was a problem, don't you think I would have called by now? And with the pandemic, I figured it safer to only go to the doctor for emergencies.  I've been on HRT for 8 years now and my last dosage change was at least 4 years ago. My blood work always comes back the same.  Why do I still need to see the doctor so often. At this point, wouldn't once yearly be sufficient? I'm so tired of having to see the doctor so much.  (I go to a local clinic that is well known for being LGBT friendly.  All the providers there mostly follow the same protocols when it comes to trans patients so switching to someone else there would likely have the same result. ) Anybody else tired of doctors taking advantage of you?

      Good to hear, Liz. I bet it felt fantastic even with the couple of snags. I so envy you.   Today for me was an OK. day. Got the word on my wig. then had a therapist appointment. I wound up rescheduling it because my wife was home. She was going to be nice and go upstairs and do some cleaning. Then as my appointment time came she decides to sit in the living room.(Three feet from me) and look through some pictures. Some privacy. So I scoot upstairs. With her just sitting down here. I really didn't want to open up so I rescheduled.    Of course, when I came down early she asked, All done?  me:Yep short and sweet. her: OK  I hope that I didn't invade your privacy.  in a snide kinda way.   I love her to death but I am getting so fed up with her crap.   Kymmie

      Holly, girl, sometimes you remind me of myself! I love a pink headband, I'm completely in your boat on weight, I also have a winter/christmas-theme in my name (which I cherish), and although I'm nowhere near any point of choosing a vagiplasty procedure, I know without a doubt if I do ever decide to both transition and also opt for bottom surgery, for me personally, the ability to experience vaginal penetration, be it a guy (even though I'm not romantically attracted to them), or a trans-woman with or without SRS, or a...prop (with or without batteries )...or...any other more universal anatomy...[sly grin]...For me personally, that's where my heart is, and huge part of what I've always envied from the female side.   Personally, I don't even care if it makes me look loose, or even downright slutty. For me, sexuality, along with its partner sensuality, rank among to absolute best top reasons for being alive!!! And I say to heck with any restrained haters!

      I am 65, pre-op, married to my soul mate and have no interest in penetration or dilation. So I guess that makes me lesbian. I also had my prostate removed with salvage radiation 2 years later (this year). That will make the surgery to install a canal more difficult and hazardous. If I was 30, I might go in another direction. The only thing that makes any sense for me is the Non Canal version. I have my GCS consult next month.   I don't have estrogen yet, but also don't have testosterone either, other than from the adrenals due to Lupron shots. My therapist told me she has never seen someone as happy as I am without any hormones. I can't wait to try estrogen. I don't ever want that poison called testosterone in my veins ever again!

      My first full day at work as Elizabeth was interesting. I got my Outlook account updated but somebody forgot to remove my the old picture from my signature. Thankfully I only sent 1 email before I caught it. I have been on auto-pilot introducing myself on the phone for the last few years so I was surprised I only messed it once. I was also pretty funny listening everyone correct themselves when they would use my dead name.   I also changed everything on my FB account. I decided to just update my name, profile picture and just see where it lands. So far it's been going over good.

      Hi, this is my first post, so hopefully I didn’t screw up somehow. I’m bisexual, AMAB, and right now I am struggling with gender questioning and feeling nonbinary (specifically genderqueer or bi-gender.) I already have a therapist who is a grad student, who I really like and enjoy talking to, but I have presented to him as a cis male from the beginning of our correspondence. I am currently working with him to battle my anxiety and depression symptoms and working with his office to get a formal diagnosis. I don’t know if he has experience in gender therapy, but I feel a need to get help from someone who can help me address my gender identity. The obstacle is that I’m really scared and I don’t know what to say, especially since he already knows me as male, and my gender identity is a bit more complex than just transfeminine (not to undercut the struggles of all of you trans femmes out there, love you!) Anyway, do you think I need to look for a separate gender therapist who can help me? Should I focus on getting my anxiety and depression sorted before I tackle my gender? (Keep in mind I may want to pursue gender affirming medical transition.) Should I just bite the bullet and tell him in an email if I’m too scared to do it in person? I feel terrified, and any response would be appreciated. Thanks.

      So sorry to hear that @Abi 
    • Berni
      This thread is so interesting to read ... even though I feel like this kind of decision is a really long way off for me. So great to hear everyone's stories and thoughts. Such a valuable resource.   I think you are all so brave! I'm sitting here feeling sore and sorry from a really minor operation. The amount of .... determination? (Is that the right word?) ... to undertake what you have gone through is very inspiring.   Man, we trans girls are tough!
