9 Ways to Highlight Your Assets (MTF Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

Highlighting your assets is the secret to being a super hot crossdresser or transgender woman.
It’s impossible for people to notice your “flaws” if they’re too busy looking at something else – like your sexy legs, breasts, or behind.
But it’s NOT about wearing the tightest, shortest thing you can find. It’s about attracting attention in a classy and tasteful way.
Here are 9 ways to highlight your assets:
If your LEGS are your best asset …

Choose your best skirt length

The most elegant and flattering skirt length is generally 1-2 inches above or below the knee. (Notice I did NOT say crotch length!)
Here’s a simple test for finding the best skirt length for your body:
    • Stand in front of a mirror wearing the shoes you normally wear with skirts or dresses.
    • Hold up a piece of fabric and raise and lower the hemline of the fabric in front of your legs.
  • Notice which length make your legs look best.
 

Wear pantyhose

Although pantyhose isn’t as popular as it used to be, hosiery adds polish and definition to the legs. It’s also a great way to cover up imperfections.
The secret is to wear the sheerest pantyhose you can find for a sexy, modern look.

Try D’orsay pumps

The D’Orsay is a shoe style where the sides are cut away to reveal the arch of the foot. This is an elegant shoe style that’s perfect for showing off beautiful legs.
While high heels give your legs maximum definition, the D’Orsay is also flattering in flats and low pumps.
If your BREASTS are your best asset …

Go for deep “v” necklines

breasts-vneck
The easiest way to show off beautiful breasts is to wear a low cut top – and v-necks are especially flattering.
But how low is too low? A good rule of thumb is to show off 20%-40% of your bust. This gives you sex appeal, while keeping it classy.

Look for tops that frame your breasts

Another flattering option is to wear tops that frame your breasts. Think halter tops or tops that have shirring or trimming at the bustline.
The more defined the bust area, the more “the girls” will stand out.

Apply a bit of shimmer powder

A final way to make your bust pop is to apply a bit of shimmer powder to the visible part of the breasts. This highlights the breasts, similar to the way eyeshadow highlights the eyes.
Just be sure you aren’t using anything too glittery or shiny. A shimmer powder like Sephora MicroSmooth Baked Luminizer or Stila All Over Shimmer Duo will give you a subtle glow – not make you look like a disco ball.
If your BUTT is your best asset …

Wear skirts or dresses with ruching in the back

butt-ruching
Ruching (i.e. gathering along the seam line) adds volume to your curves and highlights your assets. It’s one of the easiest ways to make a great butt look even better.

Look for bottoms with a sweet heart or “v” shaped back yoke

butt-yoke
A yoke is a piece of fabric located below the waistband of a skirt or pants. The shape of the yoke has a major effect on the appearance of your butt.
Sweet heart and “v” shaped yokes are most flattering. Stay away from straight yokes (they make your waist look larger) and wide yokes (they make it look like your pants are falling down).

Try butt-enhancing shapewear

There are tons of butt-enhancing undergarments on the market now – ranging from butt-lifting shapewear to heavy-duty padded panties.
Here are 3 top-reviewed booty enhancers:
  • Foxy Fanny Silicone Padded Brief
  • Caboost! Padded Panties
  • The Tush Cush
Even if you are already blessed with a beautiful behind, the right shapewear can give you added oomph under your clothes. Think of it like a push-up bra for your behind.
So girlfriend, which body part if YOUR best asset? Your legs, breasts, butt … or maybe something else?

A Gender Transition

Wasn't fun

Are you sure?

I wish I could tell you your life will get better just after transition but that would be a lie. A lot of girls end up regretting all the changes: often times for the wrong reasons. The most important aspect of a successful transition is rebuilding an emotional infrastructure: that support group of dear friends & family that comprise of our happiness through the course of each week & year.

Will your life be better after you transition?

Fundamentally, perhaps yes. However, in terms of “quality of life” – the answer is almost always “no”. Even in the best of circumstances, you’ll face these challenges:
  1. You’ll lose a lot of friends. Many that you retain will never enjoy the same level of intimacy as before.
  2. You’ll face strained relationships with some family members.
  3. You’ll live with lots of emotional scars from hurtful comments from loved ones – even strangers.
  4. Your work & career options will be limited. You might lose your job and your ability to earn a decent living at a time when costs associated with a successful transition are straining your resources.
  5. The process to successfully change your tender is very long, expensive & sometimes painful.

The best real-life analogy I can offer comparing what transition will & won’t be?

I sometimes compare a gender transition to resolving a life-long challenge with horrible back pain. Anyone whose ever experienced severe spinal issues is aware how it affects every movement & thus every aspect of your life. If you get it repaired? You simply now have a good back – not necessarily a good life.

Now suppose you were born with this painful back pain. Throughout your entire life you found it almost impossible to function because of the pain associated with this birth defect. You find out you can fix it…but it’ll cost you about ten focused years of your life. In that process you’ll probably lose a lot of friends & family, most of your money & your subsequent career opportunities will be minimized.

Is your back ache so miserable that you’re willing to go through all this to enjoy a normal life?

It’s very important to carefully consider this issue. One big reason? After you fix that back-ache, most of your other life issues, feelings of inadequacy, frustrations…? They’re still there. The only thing that’s changed is your back no longer hurts.

It creates a basis for a lot more internal happiness. You’re no longer lying to the world, or yourself. Unfortunately, inner solace is only good for so much joy: you can’t grab a cup of coffee with it or trash talk your favorite nemesis.
