Almost caught crossdressing

Just reading these two words conjures a rapid montage of all the times I nearly got caught crossdressing when I was still living in the secret comfort of the closet. My mind had created many narratives of being caught wearing just panties and bras, and very few had a happy ending. Thankfully, I never was.

I remember the closest I ever came and even now looking back, I know the outcome would have been the end of a relationship. A relationship that ended anyway. What I feared I would lose, was never permanent in the first place.

She had just left the house, and upstairs waiting for me to try on was a black lingerie set that I had bought and not yet worn. I laid the fabric out on the bed and admired the intricate design of the lacing. Felt the smooth texture of silk and nylon. Imagined how fantastic it would look. Just as I began to undress, I heard the door.


30 seconds! Adrenaline rushes. Stomach knots. Temperature rises 20 degrees in nanoseconds. And the breathing. Every single inhaled breath pierces your core. Act natural. Breathe. Time.

Clothes stashed under the bed cover.
Hand slightly trembles.
Check nothing left out in the open.
Short irregular breaths.
Quick glance around. Am I safe now?
Shaking…is it fear or is it relief?
Shout from downstairs…something about forgotten keys.
Did my voice falter?
Act normal……..door bangs shut.
It is over.
10 years on…..fear of what?
Had I been caught, it would have been a blessing in disguise. It would have meant no purges. No shame. No judgement. No lies. No adrenaline. No fear.
Embrace who we are. Love what we are. Be whatever you are. Be beautiful.
Life is too short.

When I'm not busy teaching, kick boxing, or looking after a household full of offspring, I enjoy exploring my feminine side with a new degree of freedom since coming out. I crossdress whenever possible with no desire to transition.

I’m a married crossdresser but my wife doesn’t approve of this. I own a lot of clothes and shoes. Never been out in public as Kayla. I do wear panties, stockings, and a camisole under my boy clothes every day. I wish that my wife would understand. But I know that it will never happen.

I too am tired of the stress of hiding my femme side from my wife. I would like to tell her but, among other issues, I’m sure she would be furious with me for keeping such a huge secret from her for so long. If I keep dressing, odds are that sooner or later I’ll get caught. Then the proverbial s–t will hit the fan. I guess a lot of us girls are in this situation. All I can say is good luck to you and I hope your situation ends well.

I relate to you all. In one way or another. I was cought by my first and second wives. In addition to several girlfriends. It was an adrenaline rush. It is the past, my current partner, female, accepts me but only if I remain under her scrutiny, really?? To prevent drama I’ll go with her program but, I am more free to change when ever I want. Now, she walks right into our room when I am adjusting my male parts in between my legs and doesn’t say a word. It used to be mind bugling but it has change.… Read more »

Not caught, but have had a few close calls. I keep my stash in a box behind a stack of heavier boxes in the basement. Using furniture pads makes it easy to pull them away to get to the stash. Panic sets in when I cannot account for something. Once I left a pair of silky panties on a side table but found them after back tracking in my mind what I was doing. Another time I had to quickly change and tossed my skirt , blouse and panties under the sofa. The dog found them and scattered them around… Read more »

Ha! Great little anecdote – the description of the adrenaline attack really took me back. Not that long ago (2 months) I was having landscaping done at the house. Rain was expected on this particular day and the crew weren’t to make an appearance due to the expected mud. Well, Wendy was fully present first thing (awake/shower/makeup… it was to be a great day). Then I heard it: the “beep-beep-beep" of heavy equipment easing it’s way down our driveway! Moral: it always pays to have an escape plan 🙂 Great story Sonja, (you look great, too).
