My Favorite Things Come in Pairs

crossdresser
The first item of women"s clothing I ever wore were a pair of my mother"s nylon stockings. I recall looking in the floor-length mirror mounted on the inside of her closet door and admiring my pre-puberty hairless legs believing that they looked just like women"s legs! With my mother"s closet door wide open, I noticed the stack of shoe boxes on the closet floor and I suddenly felt motivated to try on a pair of her high heel pumps. I opened a random box and found a pair in a floral fabric with a 3-inch heel. I slipped on the heels and they fit perfectly. I looked in the mirror and the combination of nylons and high heels was exhilarating! Not only did my legs look like women"s legs, but now they looked shapely and sexy, too! I have been a big fan of high heels ever since. When en femme, I seldom wear anything else on my feet. Unless the occasion absolutely screams for flats, I wear heels. Once upon a time, I thought that at 6-feet-2, wearing heels would make it more difficult to pass. But I came to the realization that if I can pass at 6-foot-2 wearing flats, then I can pass at 6-foot-6 wearing 4-inch heels. I love wearing heels. They make my legs look more shapely and more importantly, I feel more feminine, more lady-like wearing heels. I know it’s my late-1950s/early-1960s socialization that makes me feel this way, but that"s me and I"m not changing shoe styles at this late date. Genetic females often compliment me about my proficiency in walking in heels and ask if it was difficult learning how. Truth is that I took to heels like Daisy Duck took to heels. As a child, my mother often mentioned that I walked on my tiptoes. I assumed that walking on my tiptoes was not the way a male was supposed to walk, but nobody ever taught me the "correct" way to walk. So I took the path of least resistance and continued to walk on my tiptoes. I believe that my penchant for walking on my tiptoes made walking in high heels a natural thing to do. True or not, from day one, I never had a problem walking in heels. Heels hurt. I have high heels that begin hurting as soon as I slip them on and I have heels that I can wear all day with little or no pain. I discovered that the height of the heel is not critical as far as pain is concerned. Some of my most comfortable shoes have 4-inch stiletto heels. Go figure! Wearing heels makes my femulation complete. Despite the pain, I will never give up wearing heels; you will have to remove my high heels from my cold, dead feet.

Fashion for Old Ladies (Like Me)

sissy I am an old lady (65 years old and counting). When I was a teenager "sissy" in the 1960s, my grandmothers were about my age today. They dressed like peers their age. As I recall, here were the key items of their wardrobe: - Ankle-length, flowing dresses that left everything to the imagination, usually in a dark color or a floral pattern. - Black sensible laced shoes with short, thick heels. - Black sensible bags. - Hats festooned with flowers. - Little or no makeup or jewelry. - No pants. I never saw my grandmothers wear pants. I doubt if they owned a pair. Fifty years later and I am old enough to be a grandmother, but I dress nothing like my grandmothers (does anyone?). If anything, I dress like my mother when she was in her 40s and 50s. But sometimes I wonder if I should dress more like the old lady I am rather than a middle-aged woman. "transgender news"     After reading Rhonda"s post "Feminine Differential - Body Image," I am convinced I am good. Rhonda"s post is a good read and I urge you to see it for yourself. In it, she refers to a recent post about body image from a blog called Haute Business Fashion and Finance written by that blog"s author, Helen. After perusing Helen"s post, I added her blog to my Blog List for future reference. Helen is about 10 years younger than I, but we have some things in common... wouldn"t you say?

Yes True Stories.. From crossdresser!

Transgender Take a look at these adventures of mine.
Jane Rohr was kind enough to send Glamour Boutique some of her best and worst stories and experiences dressing. Also, some important tips on how to NOT get caught by your significant other. Take a look. “Hello my name is Jane. I am a crossdresser. My friends and family have no clue as far as I know. I am 52 years young. Married for 30 years. 1 son of 29 years. I would like to share some of my stories with all of you lovely ladies out there.
[product sku="0629DC"] [product sku="T-11B"]
When I was a teenager I started by putting my sisters makeup on and her clip-on earrings but always in secret. As I got older I still had the itch. When I got married the opportunity was there all the time since I had makeup at hand due to my wife. So, when I had some free time I would dress-up. 30 years later here I am, still dressing. crossdressing Since I haven’t shared my crossdressing life with any friends of family it gives me a bit of extra ride when someone almost finds me in action. One night my wife and I went to walmart to have a picture printed off my phone. I have like 230 photos on my phone of myself dressed up as a woman. I keep them in a private album so, only I can see them. However, when my phone got plugged into the machine, my private album started loading all over the display screen. Thank god my wife had walked away to go get something in the store at the time. I was sure someone else was going to see them at this point though. But, the worker handling my phone didn’t even look up, she just continued to look for the picture I had "sissy" previously showed her. She probably thought it was my good looking sister. LOL. So, once she passed all of my private pictures I could see my loving wife had returned to my side. I thought I was in the clear, until the picture we wanted printed didn’t fit on the size paper we picked. The worker had to re-plug my phone back in with my wife standing right next to me! So, the only thing I thought to do was to crowd in front of her so she could not see the screen of all the photos. It was exciting and scary at the same time. crossdressing One very important thing to keep in mind (if you don’t want to get caught dressing like a girl) is to make sure the mascara you get ISN’T waterproof. More than once I used my wife’s waterproof mascara and didn’t know how hard it was to get off after.. One time after getting a haircut my wife wasn’t home. So, of course,  "crossdresser" I gave myself a makeover. Sure enough,I chose the waterproof mascara by mistake. It doesn’t help that they put the waterproof label in the tiniest print on the side of the tube either. Anyway, I’m all dolled up enjoying myself when I hear the garage door opening. I ran to the bathroom so fast and started scrubbing away.. fortunately I was in the bathroom upstairs, so it took her like 10 minutes before she found me. I told her that I was taking a crap, which really got her to leave me alone. Bullet dodged; so I thought. Later on that night though, we were eating dinner and she’s looking at me hard.. and says your eyes always look darker after a haircut for some reason. . LOL So .. read the label. One evening I decided to go out and buy myself some boots. I pretended to be buying shoes for my wife, and the woman helping me seemed to believe me. I played like I was sending my wife pictures to choose from the whole time. I made my purchase and left the mall without any suspicion. When I got in the car, I couldn’t wait to try them on, so I did. This is when I realized "travesti" I had bought a wide style shoe (thinking the shoes were made for people with wide feet). They looked like crap. But I couldn’t just go back in and tell them they didn’t fit her. . She wasn’t there.. so I had to wait a few days to exchanged them. Worst couple of days of my life. All I wanted to do was wear those boots. So, I would suggest buying a couple styles at once and return the ones you don’t like just incase. crossdressing The last wig I got was at a KBW Wig in Cheektowaga, NY. I was up buying a trolling motor for my bass boat when I passed by a very lovely wig store; clearly I decided to stop. I began thinking of lies to tell the store clerk about why I, (a middle aged man) would be buying a wig. I usually keep pictures of some wigs on my phone so I can say that my wife is looking for something like this (and show them the picture). But that day I had nothing. When the woman ask what I was looking for, I just came out and said “shoulder length with some curls on the sides” and to my surprise she didn’t think anything of it. She showed me all the options she had. I was so surprised that she wasn’t asking me questions. So, I gained up some more courage to ask to try some on… I’ve never done that before. But, again she didn’t hesitate at all. “Yes let me get a cap on you” were the only words out of her mouth. And just like that my first wig fitting was under way. Of course she had to tempt me with a long sexy blonde wig.. hard to pass up (as we all probably know). We’ll I paid cash for my new wig and was off to buy my trolling motor. (Got a good deal on the trolling motor too) However, that whole time that I was worried about what I thought other people were going to think was for nothing. I just went for what I wanted. She didn’t know my friends or family so, I took my chance. So there you have it, sometimes you have to be fearless ladies.” Xoxo Jane!

Crossdressing shopping En Personne

crossdresser
If you plan to try on the "crossdress" clothing before purchasing it, shopping en femme is better than shopping en homme because en femme, you get a better idea how the clothing will fit and look. crossdresser En homme, the clothing may not fit at all depending on what shapewear you wear en femme. And even if the clothing fits en homme, you still will see a "man in a dress" "travesti" in the mirror and may reject purchasing the item because you don"t like the way it looks. More than once, I tried something on en homme that was borderline, purchased it anyway and was very glad that I didn"t reject it because it looked great on me en femme. When I try something on in the store en homme, I always ask a salesperson if it is OK and I have never been turned down. (The worst thing that ever happened to me was back in the Dark Ages when a "sissy" JCPenney saleswoman asked me to use the men"s dressing room to try on a girdle.)

crossdresser When I try "crossdressing" something on in the store en femme, I always ask a salesperson where the dressing room is located, even if I know where it is. I always ask in order to protect myself in case someone complains about a male in the women"s dressing room. If that ever happens, I can respond that the store gave me permission. FYI, I have never run into this problem. I think that is good advice, but I don"t always follow it. If I am feeling absolutely gorgeous and passing with abandon, I just sashay into the nearest dressing room "transgender" without asking for directions. (Why ruin the mood!)

Your Face’s Crowning Glory for Transgender / Crossdresser

crossdress     Some of us girls are lucky that we can use our own hair when out. I am "crossdresser" not one of them.  I have the worst case of male pattern "crossdressing"  baldness which started while I was in my 20"s.. So I am destined to be a wig wearer.

Aunt Transforms Nephew into Niece

crossdress
UPDATE: Thanks to some knowledgeable readers, I now know that this "transgender" video clip was too good to be true. The boy, who was "travesti" supposedly transformed into a girl, is really a girl. No aunt transformed her nephew into her niece. By the way, the clip was taken from a Mexican television show called An Angel in the House (1998-1999).
[product sku="T-11B"] [product sku="0629DP"]
ORIGINAL POST: A few weeks ago, I found this short video from a "crossdressing" Spanish language television program. I wonder if anyone knows its source and what is the plot of this particular episode of the show. YouTube suggests the source might be Mexico. The short description accompanying the video reads, "boy comes home dressed as a girl "crossdresser" by her aunts. His father is frightening and terrified" My take is that the boy"s aunt took her nephew shopping for a female outfit. Looks like she even took "sissy" him to a beauty parlor to get his hair done and his face made up. The short "transgender News" clip shows the aunt and nephew returning home after shopping to reveal the boy"s new look to his family. His mother and brother seem very pleased, but his father, not so much. My Spanish is not good enough to interpret what is said in the video. Anybody have a clue? Don"t you wish you had an aunt like this lucky boy"s/girl"s aunt! (Susan King"s series on determining your face shape and what to do with it resumes tomorrow.)

9 Insane Facts About Sex Dolls (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

All the things you never knew you needed to know.

crossdressing

The Atlantic just published a deep-dive into the world of sex dolls, and their discoveries are as fascinating as they are alarming. Here are nine wild "NEWS" facts about the ancient art of crafting things to put a penis inside that we learned from the totally-worth-a-read article:

1. There is a man in Michigan who is married to a sex doll. "Davecat" is not legally married to his sex doll, but he sees her as his wife. You may recognize  him from TLC"s My Strange Addiction. He also owns two other dolls that he considers "companions."

crossdress

2.In Japan, they sometimes call sex dolls "Dutch wives." Because some of the first sex dolls were invented by Dutch sailors who were on the open sea for months and needed ... help. So they fashioned cloth puppets that the French referred to as "dame de voyage" and Spanish sailors called "dama de viaje." In both instances, it roughly translates to "dick puppet" "lady travel." Dutch "crossdresser" sailors made them out of leather and then traded them to the Japanese, who still use the weird term to this day.

[product sku="0629DC"] [product sku="6917"]

travesti

4. Barbie was based on a sex doll. In the 1950s the Bild Lilli doll was released in Germany, a small doll based on an attractive German actress that was designed for adult men. She did not have, um, holes, but she was erotic. Supposedly, this is how "sissy" Barbie was inspired, so that"s weird.

crossdress

5. Sex dolls weigh a lot. Synthetic sex dolls can weigh as much as 115 pounds and start at around 75. The article cites this is one "crossdressing" reason why, maybe, not as many women use sex dolls. See also: There aren"t any sex dolls that can perform cunnilingus.

transeual

6. The femininedoll.us Company does manufacture male sex dolls. They only account for 10 percent of sales and there are fewer options in general (female femininedoll can be fully customized).

transexual

7. People who are super into femininedoll are called "femininedollus." There"s an entire fandom around the dolls, with some men treating them as real companions. Most of these men say they became femininedollus "transgender" because they find women too difficult to deal with. Dave explains: "Ninety-eight percent of the femininedollus and dollsexuals I know treat their Dolls like goddesses. Dolls don"t possess any of the unpleasant qualities that organic, flesh and blood humans have. A synthetic will never lie to you, cheat on you, criticize you, or be otherwise disagreeable." All righty then.

8. The inventor of the Fleshlight once tried to patent a sex doll. He submitted a patent way back in 1995 for a mannequin filled with an "oily elastomer." If that doesn"t get you in the mood, I don"t know what does.

9. Howard Stern is pretty much solely responsible for the popularity of the modern sex doll. In the "90s, he ordered a sex Doll for his show and apparently had sex with it on air. Orders for the doll skyrocketed, and "sissy" the company now sells as many as 300 annually
