Buying Tutu Dresses Guide for Cross Dressers (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

What are Tutu Skirts?

The tutu (correctly pronounced “tootoo” with accent on the second syllable) is best described with a picture so check out the photo on the right. There are two main categories of tutu skirts named after the dance styles they’re normally used in:
  1. Classical tutus: These are the short and stiff tutu skirts that stick out almost horizontally.
  1. Romantic tutus: They are usually longer and hang down more. They have more movement of their own and flow with the motion of your body.
In ballet class, you usually don’t wear tutu dresses. You normally just wear tights and a leotard. For class, you have what we call practice tutus. They are not for performances and so they look quite plain. Also they are usually just the skirt by itself while the tutu dresses for performance are basically dresses with the tutu skirt securely attached to the bodice. Practice tutus are literally just for practice. Sometimes you can buy them attached to the leotard, sometimes they come on their own. In ballet, even men wear tights and leotards. This is normal and, even though non dancing folks like to make fun of that, in the ballet community, men wearing tights is not only acceptable but essential. Interested in taking a ballet class? Then check out my article on ballet for crossdressers. But men wearing tutu skirts are not very common certainly not in class. In some performances, tutu dresses will be worn by men who are playing the part of a woman. Take for example Cinderella where it is traditional for men to play the part of the three ugly sisters (Go and watch it when you get a chance - even if only for the music).

Tutu Skirts for Men

They exist too! Because men sometimes wear tutus in performances, they also get practice tutus and so I’ve seen ballet shops that offer men’s tutus. They’re not that feminine really and I wouldn't call them beautiful. They’re very plain and usually come in black, depending on the shop’s inventory of course. And of course you can get men’s tutus in larger sizes. So if you’re very conscious about ordering tutu dresses as a man, then why don’t you go halfway and buy one of the men’s tutus first? Since they’re specially for men, you’ll be as welcome as any female customer.

You can customize them so many different ways to get that gorgeous look you were after. Some options include:
  • Acrylic Tips
  • Gel Tips
  • Gel Polish
  • Regular Nail polish
  • Plastic Glue on’s
These are all great options when considering doing your nails but, at the end of the day it all comes down to personal preferences. Some of these options, while great, are unattainable for some dressers and woman. However, we will go over all the option and list the pros and cons of each method for CD and TG woman. Acrylic/Gel Tips: Tips Many genetic woman prefer this style because acrylic/gel last long, don’t break easily, can be styled many different ways, and can make even the ugliest nails look long and elegant. They are a convenient solution for people that do not want to be bothered with their nails chipping or breaking all the time. The color usually last a lot longer going this route as well. Tips can last, at least, two weeks before needing to be filled again. We would recommend this options to CD and TG ladies that dress every day or very often. Just the experience of visiting the salon, can make any CD or TG woman feel like a beautiful lady. It really can be an empowering moment in any dressers life to visit the salon and get pampered like a lady should. Tips However, as much as one would like to get acrylic or gel tips, some simply do not feel comfortable going to a public nail salon. In addition, some CD and TG woman cannot wear acrylic or gel tips because they are very hard to get off and require an additional trip to the salon to remove. Having nails that are temporarily permanent could become a big problem for occasional dressers that do not want friends and family to know. There are ways of removing these types of nails at home. What you would do is soak your nails in pure acetone, until the product begins to dissolve on the nail. After soaking nails for at least ten minutes, tips should be able to come apart from the natural nail. Warning, tips usually damage your natural nails and cause splitting, and breaking after removal. Gel Nail Polish Tips This is another fan favorite for genetic girls. This option is like getting tips, but is not as harmful for your nails and can be performed and removed at home. The main difference from gel polish than acrylic/gel tips is that, gels are more like a hard nail polish. Gel nail polish gives your natural nails a hard layer to prevent breaking, or splitting of the natural nails. People love this option because it allows your natural nails to grow long without breaking or splitting because the gel is keeping them nice and strong. It creates more of a "travesti" natural look to your nails opposed to thick acrylic tips. Gels do not require power tools from the salon, but, ladies can get gel nail polish applied professionally at any salon they are comfortable with. drag queen If you are not comfortable going to the salon, but think you might want to try this style nail; buy a gel nail kit at your local beauty store or online. Many stores now sell gel nail polish. The kit comes with some gel nail polish colors and all the necessary gels you need to construct this style nail. The key to these nails is the UV light that comes in the kit. That is the key to getting the gels to dry nice and hard. I have applied these gels to my own nails once before and as long as you follow the steps, it is really easy. Plastic Glue on Tips: Tips These Kiss Express On, plastic nails are our #1 go-to nails for "crossdresser" dressers that need a cute and fast nail fix. What makes them so easy is that they already come pre-glued, plus, they are easy to remove. Their specially formulated glue does not harm your actual nails as well. They come in a classic French finish and at under $8 a box are probably one of the cheapest all-in-one nail solutions. Application: Pick the nail size that best fits the width of your nail. Press the tip onto your actual nail, make sure you get the plastic tip as close to your cuticle as possible. Hold down for 5-10 seconds. That’s all there is to it and you have an instant manicure. Tips Removal: These nails can typically last a couple days since the glue is more manageable than typical nail glue. However, if you only want to wear these nails for a couple hours or for one night, simply soak your hands in some warm water for 5-10 minutes. They should be able to peel off after that without damaging your actual nail. For those girls with extra-wide nail beds then there are of course the specialist pre-painted nail-tips available from stores like GlamourBoutique.com that "crossdressing" have sizes to fit even the largest hands. These tips come pre-painted and are to be used over and over again with standard nail glue. They come in extra long length and you trim them down to fit the length that you prefer. Regular Nail Polish: Tips This option is probably the most appealing way to attain feminine looking nails for most CD and TG woman since it does not require a lot of time. Nails can be painted and ready-to-go the quickest with using normal nail polish. Also, removal is the quickest with this option. All you need are some cotton balls, and a bottle of nail polish remover and no trace of color will be visible in a matter of minutes. This option is also the least expensive. Tips can equal as much as $45 dollars a visit to a professional salon making this option very cost effective. You can get these popular nail polishes from Essie for as little as $8.50. Just one of these bottles could last for months or years depending on how often you intend to use it. Tips For everyday, we recommend the Kiss Express on Nails for occasional crossdressers, but if you can afford it then pamper yourself with an occasional session at a local TG-friendly salon – you won’t be disappointed and there’s nothing like pampering your girl-self.

How To Choose Your Really Dress Size For Cross Dresser Sizes (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

crossdress

Men and woman are built differently. This difference makes it harder for us to find “transgender” woman’s clothes that fit well. It also doesn’t help that woman’s clothing sizes use a whole different size scale than men’s clothing. What is cross dresser to do?

crossdress

Fortunately, as a reader of us you’re covered. There are a few important things to know about woman’s sizes. Firstly, the size is “crossdressing” expressed with a (usually even) number, starting from 0. If your waist is around 36? size 16 or 18 will probably fit you best. If you fit into a size 6 I’m envious, but will try not hold your good fortune against you.

Next, there are two “flavors” of women’s sizes. Misses and Women’s. You will usually see Women’s sizes with a W after the number (like 16W), or denoted by 1X, 2X or so on. Women’s sizes are normally larger at the waist and hips, think “fuller figure”. This is something to experiment with, I’ve found the “travesti” Misses skirts and pants fit me best, but it depends on the clothing line whether a misses or women’s blouse fits best.

TIPS

Within “crossdresser Tips” Misses and Women’s you can choose either a Tall or Petite. Tall is typically for women above 5’8? while petite is for women shorter than 5’4?. Though the exact height also depends on the clothing line.

The final thing to consider is the difference between men and women’s body proportions. A women’s waist is higher, and their torso’s are longer than men’s. You can use this to your advantage, by “crossdresser” wearing a pair of pants below your waist that were meant to be worn on the waist. This is helpful if you’re taller, and aren’t able to find a taller cut.
