Photos are a great way to share your femme self with the world.
But maybe you think you have to look like a model to take stunning photos?
Guess again! Taking beautiful photos is all about SKILL.
Here are my top 5 secrets for looking HOT in your femme photos:
1. Angle your body
When it comes to flattering photos, it’s all about the angles.
The #1 rule is to avoid facing the camera straight on. This tends to make your body look wider than it actually is.
Instead, angle your torso away from the camera. This creates the illusion of smaller shoulders and helps balance the proportions of your body.
2. Position the camera correctly
The camera angle has a huge impact on how your photos turn out. If the camera is too low, it can create the look of a double chin.
The camera lens should be positioned at or above eye level for the most flattering shots.
Another tip is to project your chin forward an inch or so more than normal. This helps define your jawline, regardless of the camera angle.
3. Find your best side
It’s not a myth that everybody has a “good side”. Our faces aren’t perfectly symmetrical, so they look different from each side.
Experiment with different facial angles until you find your best look. Try turning your face slightly right or left, and tilting your chin up and down.
Once you’ve found your good side, work it!
4. Watch your arms
Arms are a trouble spot for many crossdressers and transgender women.
Posing with your arms pressed against your body makes them look even bigger. Keep your arms slightly away from your body for a slimming effect.
Do you wish you had a thinner, more feminine figure right now?
I’m guessing the answer is YES!
The good news is that there are some easy tricks for looking 5 or 10 pounds thinner – instantly! (No diets or grueling workouts required.)
Here are 5 ways to slenderize your body now:
1. Wear clothes that fit right
The way your clothes fit has a huge impact on how you look.
- Clothes that are too tight highlight your trouble spots and emphasize fat rolls.
- Clothes that are too big add bulk and give your body a formless shape.
Instead of squeezing or drowning your body with ill-fitting clothes, choose items that GRAZE your figure. Garments that skim along your body create a thinner illusion.
2. Go for V necks and open collars
V neck tops and open collars create flattering vertical lines down your torso (where most TG girls carry their weight) and help draw attention to your face.
If you have large breasts (or wear large breast forms), you should definitely stay away from high neck tops since these create a matronly look.
3. Choose flattering accessories
Accessories are a great way to direct people’s eyes towards your assets – and AWAY from a beer belly or bulges.
Here are 3 suggestions:
- Wear beautiful earrings to draw the focus away from your body to your face.
- Wear long necklaces to create the illusion of a slimmer torso. (Vertical lines keep the eyes moving up and down instead of out.
- If you have nice hands, wear bracelets and rings to bring attention to your wrists. This helps distract from big arms and/or broad shoulders.
4. Keep your chin up
A double chin can make even the thinnest girl look fat. Keep your chin lifted to give your neck a more defined look. This is especially important in photos.
While you’re at it, check your posture! Good posture can instantly take 5 pounds off your figure.
5. Choose your colors wisely
I’m sure you’ve heard that wearing dark colors can downplay your trouble spots. While this is true, it doesn’t mean you have to live in black clothes.
Instead, wear clothes of a similar tone or intensity. A monochromatic look creates an uninterrupted vertical line. This makes you look thinner than if you were wearing contrasting colors. For example:
- Wear a blue top with denim jeans.
- Pair a burgundy cardigan with brown pants.
- Add black pantyhose under a black dress.
Look your best – even with a few pounds to spare…

Please take my poll and leave your comments below!
do you feel responsible approximately crossdressing or being transgender? unfortunately, lots of “my girls” tell me that they do.
if you feel you need to lie or sneak around to keep your female facet hidden, i will recognize the conflict.
however let’s get one factor straight – there’s not anything wrong with crossdressing or being transgender. duration.
we stay in a world with very described gender roles. sadly, those roles are even more rigid for males.
it’s good enough for women to specific their masculinity by dressing like tomboys or with the aid of performing sturdy and assertive. however if a man appears or acts female, he’s labeled as weird, vulnerable, or gay.
the underlying message is that it’s ok to be masculine (even in case you’re a female), but femininity is some thing to be ashamed of.
what the heck!?
society is slowing converting, but the time to reject these old messages is now.
i think iggy pop said it first-rate:
“i’m now not ashamed to dress like a girl because i don’t suppose it’s shameful to be a woman.”
there’s no shame in changing your gender to suit who you are on the inside both!
i’d like to pay attention your mind on this subject matter…
do you conflict with guilt or is it a non-difficulty for you? if you’ve triumph over emotions of guilt, how did you do so?
please take my ballot and go away me your remarks underneath!
