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 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.

    silicone hip and butt pads with a good pocketed panty girdle to hold them in place and a boned waist cincher and of course some awesome breast forms complete my look

    I have tried hip/butts pads but found them a bit too much upkeep (they slip and fall, constantly adjusting). I know have started with more in the butt department but hips – I am still a man

    So I created a lower body workout to enhance the parts of the hip that are feminine. I work out my lateral thigh muscles, especially at the hip/pelvis area. Also I focus on my hip flexors, the upper quad muscle to get that shapely curve that many women possess

    Is it perfect, no, but it has made a difference. I just found exercises, machines that make me burn in the right areas, and that was all. Recently I started ice skating again. Also works out hip abductors and glutes.

    Don’t know if it will work for everyone but I’ll keep you posted

    Any “shape wear” store should carry shaping panties with pouches to slip foam rubber pads in and out. I wear them…..terrific things….ones for bums too! If not look up Aliexpress on line . That is where I get most of mine….great prices and very reliable shipping…albeit a while.

    I am struggling a bit on whether to wear my hip padding or not.

    I love the extra shape it gives me but I have noticed most girls don’t seem to wear them.

    I wonder if it is real obvious I wear them. I do like the femme look it gives me.
    Silicon has been suggested but I worry about the medical tape holding up.

    I am lucky – privileged – in that my body has always leaned more toward the feminine side. This is helpful in that women’s clothing and shoes fit well for me. I wear juniors and often am complimented on my ‘style.’ That being said, as it is for GG’s, I have to work on maintenance and enhancement of what I have been blessed with (now that I can see it as a blessing).
    First is what and, importantly, how I eat. Slowly…. slowly….I eat slowly. This cuts down on the propensity to overeat. I use lots of flavor in my food. For me, the flavor helps to satiate. I enjoy soups and salads with lots of greens. None of that iceberg stuff; rather, good wholesome mixed greens. I use lighter meats, like chicken and fish with lots of veggies included. All of it washed down with copious amounts of water and green tea.
    Second is working out. This has actually become a fun part of my day. I take long walks, power walks, light jogs. Anything to keep the metabolism up without and muscle bulk. Yoga helps me to stay flexible and lengthen muscle lines. The majority of my muscle building time is spent on hip exercises. You would be amazed how much glute work you can do flexing hip muscles on the daily commute.
    Posture is everything. Luckily, I have a natural hip swing (that was $#&& in man mode days) and posture helps that to come through when you need it to. It took work and conscious effort, but now comes naturally to maintain a tight core while walking. The tight core pulls the tummy in and adds a subtle shift to my hip position which is more like a GG pelvic position.
    The key is to find the secrets that work for your body.

    I have a typical guy figure I guess but I am also lucky to not be 6′ tall. I am only 5’7″. This is an immediate advantage when trying to pass.
    If I want to wear jeans I always wear some padded knickers which also help keep my bits tucked away. They go along way to giving me a girly bum, especially with a pair of shoes with a medium heel. Say 2-2.5″.
    I then add a waist clincher. Depending on what top I intend to wear I will either just add a slightly padded bra to make me an A cup, or add boobs to take me to a B or C.
    I do own a couple of good quality corsets which are great if I want to wear a dress which requires a small waist. I can easily take 3-4″ off my waist and it helps to push up my small boobs too.
