Crossdressing in pursuit of the perfect feminine figure

It’s happened to all of us. We finally pluck up the courage to purchase an outfit of our very own and spend many days or weeks admiring our new femininity in the privacy of our home. The feelings of elation seem to touch to the core of our soul as we see the woman inside us come to life. Yet after a few weeks something happens.

We observe that the dress doesn’t hang right. The sexy blouse seems to gape in an unattractive way. Even in the dim light of evening we struggle to describe our hourglass form as such. The elation of those first tentative steps are replaced with a low grade despondency a frustration at how far our form is from the perfect feminine figure.

Enter Crossdresser Body Shapers

With some guidance from fellow crossdressers, or a few keystroke search over the Internet we find the answer to our feminine figure frustrations – body shapers. The most obvious starting place is, of course, breast forms. Of all the things missing from our bodies breasts are the first and most obvious we notice. Breast forms do the obvious – creating the appearance of real breasts, especially when carefully concealed behind a blouse or dress that masks their artificial nature. There are many places to purchase breast forms – in fact you’ll find a link to the Breastform store at the bottom of this page – but your figure firm ups don’t need to stop there.

As you know woman tend to have larger hips and curvier bottom than men. The balance between larger hips and smaller shoulders gives woman the desirable hourglass figure. As long as you don’t make the mistake of wearing a top with shoulder pads or copious gathers around your shoulders you’ve done about all you can do for your shoulder size. Your bottom half, however, presents an opportunity to further your feminine image. Hip pads and bottom pads are body shapers that many crossdressers use to balance out their wider shoulders, and give the appearance of a curvier, hourglass figure.

To take the illusion to the next level you can wear a corset, which makes your waist smaller through the painful application of a smothering force around your torso. Oftentimes you can take 2-4 inches off your waistline with a corset. Just be careful not to tie it too tight – it’s no good looking fabulous if you’re passed out on the floor!

Vanessa’s Body Shaping Routine

I must admit that I’ve found over time that I prefer fewer enhancements than more. Perhaps it’s just my desire to feel comfortable, or maybe I’m just fleeing from the struggle to keep those breast forms attached and happy. When I’m out with jeans and a tshirt or blouse I’ve found the lack of breast forms doesn’t make much difference as to whether I’m read or not. I’ve had less success going breastformless with dresses, or certain blouses that hung uncomfortably empty without them.

I generally don’t use hip or butt shapers – though if done right they can look fabulous. I haven’t worn a corset for a few years – for now I’m focusing on slimming my waist through diet and exercise. Once I’ve taken that as far as I can I’ll give the corset another try.

What about you? What’s your crossdresser body shaping routine?

I’m passionate about creating a safe space for everyone in the transgender community to find laughter and friendship on their journey. I completed my physical transition in 2011 and through it I lost everything, and gained everything.

I would leave that for personal photos, and not to go about town in as they can be uncomfortable. Having photos of me looking fabulous is all I would want from that. As for regular crossdressing, I just want to feel sexy in my clothes.

Same as you Vanessa…diet and exercise far as it takes me…then waist training corsets to drill down more. In the past helped knock my BMI down and gave me good results in a metabolic syndrome test. Have slacked off since but cranking up again for anticipated fall physical…see if I can get same good results again. BMI sites say men are happy with BMI at 25 to 23, and women are happy at BMI of 22 to 20. Hovering at 22 BMI now and shooting for BMI of 20. If serious renewed commitment to daily corset waist training (which is… Read more »

I have recently decided to slowly remake myself and one of my main goals is to lose 60lbs. I maybe reading the wrong websites but I wanted to know if it is true that you could get a more feminine figure doing certain exercises. I am probably naïve but could I find out if its fact or fiction. Thank you.

I actually enjoy the process of body shaping. I have to face it, I’m shaped like a typical guy, heavier in the middle, no butt to speak of and no hips. I use a corset, which I use to bring in my waist. I use breast forms, which I love and use hip and butt pads to give me a feminine shape. I have silicone and foam rubber breast forms. I like the natural feel and bounce of the silicone, but they can be hot and heavy to wear, depending their size. (I use a size 9 set of forms).… Read more »

I am hoping to lose some weight. Such a great article. Are old fashioned corsets and girdles helpful or should we prefer the newer high waist and tight lingerie ? I really like the Teddy too not that that shapes us though. So sexy.
