I am definitely relaxed whenever I am completely transformed, whether I am wearing an elegant dress with heels or a casual wear that may just be a skit or leggings with a nice blouse. It seams like my mind is not occupied with the male things. I can go an entire day running errands and at the end just think, what a great day I had. I guess just having all those wonderful textures and colors all around me makes me feel so much happier.

I wonder if many of you have the same feelings, I just love being a woman, my only wish would be if I could just be 24/7, unfortunately it can’t be a reality.

@carlafirst11 Hi, Carla, absolutely it does. In fact, I am far more likely to put on a nice dress, heels and jewellery if I've had a stressful day. I mentioned, in response to another post, (can't remember which cos I have "Hippie Brain"), that when I'm dressed, I spend the evening smiling and sighing happily.

I agree with you regarding the colours and textures of the fabric in women's clothes, much much better than anything made for men. And, of course, there's looking in the mirror and seeing a happy, well dressed me!

Hi Carla,
I totally agree! I don't even need a full transformation to get the benefits. An item or two under or over for any length of time will magically help me relax and be happier. It is a nice, harmless de-stresser for sure. You and @alexina  are onto something - it must be related to the lovely colors and textures we don't get to experience otherwise.

Denise

@carlafirst11 Hi Carla 😊 I definitely get so much more calm, light, and relaxed when I dress. Part of it is just spending some time on me, putting on some fun music and pampering myself a little. But, I suppose the biggest part of it is just the serenity that comes with releasing something I have spent so much time and effort to suppress in the past...embracing something inside me that is at least my idea of "femininity", something that I never really felt I was allowed to express. It is just so freeing.

@gaussianblur Nicely put, Nadia. From the people I've met and profiles I've read here, that's something we've all known. You're right, it's great to let it go and revel in our own version of femininity.

Hi Carla,  

Oh yes, I'm definitely more relaxed when I'm dressed.

As I'm mainly dressed when working at home, I find that it makes the work day much better. Compare that to the days at home working when I can't dress, like if my wife works at home for a day, and those day feels completely different.

@carlafirst11 I believe that we all feel more relaxed when we dress as women. That’s the main reason we do it. Allowing ourselves to drop the tough-guy machismo to be delicate and feminine feels like such a wonderful mental vacation. And like a real vacation, we always wish it could go on for a little while longer at least. Maybe I’m the odd one here, but the fabrics aren’t as important as knowing that I’m wearing women’s clothing and how they look on me. The better they look and fit, the happier I am. Speaking of which, I believe I need to shave and get my girl on!

Hugs, Jill

@carlafirst11 Crossdressing make me feel good. I'm relaxed, I feel bliss euphoria, pleasure and all kinds of feel good emotions. I love how I feel and look. That's why I keep doing it.

Hi Carla 

absolutely! When I’m stressed, anxious or feeling under the weather my sole cries out for Natalie. I realized this even when I was much younger and back before there was much information out there for us girls. 
I’m always more relaxed when dressed or even just wearing panties underneath my guy clothes. I believe it’s because it’s so comforting. The colors and feel of women’s clothing and under things is a major part of that feeling. When I’m down I just want to feel soft and feminine!

Natalie 💋💋

@splitdecision Comforting is a great way of describing it Natalie

Dressing DEFINITELY relaxes me, even when I opt to wear restrictive items like a waist shaper, long line bra, corset, or the like.  Indeed, tight undergarments seem to make me feel even more relaxed than without.  My wife speculates that I might be mildly autistic, as finding comfort in compression is a common trait in such people.  (I also dislike being touched by anyone other than her.)  I also find I sleep better when wearing a sports or lounging bra to bed.

I absolutely feel more laid back when I am dressed.  It doesn't take a dress and heels either.  I wouldn't want to do that around the house any more than I would wear a suit and tie if I wasn't going anywhere.  I'm happy as a clam in my silk robe with a bra and panties, maybe a pair of thigh highs to make my legs look better.  The best part is that I have my SO coming around to the idea.  XO - Julia

I've been underdressed since shortly after I arrived for WFH at my place today, but no forms.  For some reason though, I've been tense and not able to concentrate properly all day, far too easily distracted by posts on here and my car club forum.  There's only about an hour of work left before I go 'home' to my OH's place, but I've just had to go put on my latest long soft dress and a cardie around my shoulders.  That's better 🙂  Should have done that much earlier on.  A mental eyebrow raised though, because it's not been quite this acute before.  An element of auto-suggestion from reading this thread maybe?

I love planning on the complete outfit and make I will be wearing, the primping and getting fully dressed, hearing my heals "clack" on the floor. It is all very wonderful.  But a bit sad when I have to undress and put it all away back in the drawers and closet.

I typically am under dressed daily, so always feeling lingerie on a daily basis

My wife says I am more relaxed and less stressed when I am dressed up, which I found interesting as I feel like I am a bit more anxious (guilt and shame) and afraid that someone might come to the house while I am dressed

Yes, dressing definitely calms me. It’s both relaxing in itself and an acknowledgment of the feminine aspect of my persona.

For me it is a bit of both. Being dolled definitely gives me a sense of calm and (maybe strangely) control. There's just nothing Melodee can't face down. However I'm also quite animated - high energy, which would seem to be the opposite of relaxed, I suppose.

Uhh, not sure - final answer 🙂

I see what you mean, it’s is relaxing but not to sit down, more like you just forgot other mundane things and want to keep doing fun stuff 😘😘😘

@melodeescarlet similarly I get a high from being dressed which seems at odds with being relaxed.

I find the entire process of getting "dressed" to be relaxing and when I am done, I have a feeling of contentment.

I detest male underwear and feel very relaxed being underdressed 24/7. Most nights I sleep "fully femme, with "Summer in silk" a special favorite.

Due to a recurring but non fatal health problem, my chances of "getting my full Caty on" have been significantly reduced.

But when I can... It's just "me" and I'm in another world altogether.

 

Caty.

It most definitely does relax me . I think the reason is yet another of those that mix and merge whilst we try to understand them but predominantly it's because it's what we want .

Most definitely relaxing and calming. My wife has mentioned to me a few times that I am much more relaxed and less stressed when I dress. I think that has something to do with her acceptance. Shortly after she said that she would suggest that I dress as she felt I needed some Suzanne time. The few times I have dressed for therapy sessions I find I am more relaxed and able to talk about things a bit easier. It is interesting how letting our alter ego's out is so comforting.

XOXO
Suzanne

Dressing absolutely makes me feel calm, happy and content.  When I put on a pretty dress, it’s like a blanket of calmness covers me.  Even though I’m not out to my SO, my spouse has mentioned that I’m so much calmer than I used to be.  And I can never deny that these clothes just feel right to me.
