Crossdressing To New Heights

Crossdressing to new heights

On an earlier post I mentioned that I prefer heels under 3″. This inspired a flurry of comments, and I know that many ladies in the crossdressing community prefer to reach higher heights. As I venture out more dressed as Vanessa I’ve begun to place a higher premium on comfort (of which my wife is considerably proud), something I find that starts getting sacrificed when the heel crests over 2″. I’m also a tall crossdresser, and higher heels make me look like a somewhat unfit WNBA player.

Are You A Tall Crossdresser?

The average female is 5’7″, and the average male is 5’9″. While there are many woman over 6″ – and I’m sure almost all of them are either sports stars or super models –  statistics place only 1 in 1000 woman over the 6″ mark. For this week’s crossdressing poll I’d love to know how tall you are without your heels. Is your height an asset when passing as a woman, or do you long legs make you wonder if you should try out for America’s Next Top Model?

Last Week’s Crossdressing Poll – We Are Thankful for Crossdressing

Thanksgiving is behind us and the festive season is upon us, and I must admit that as much as I love Thanksgiving I love the fact that it’s the gateway to Christmas almost as much :). In last week’s poll I asked you, ‘Are you thankful for being a crossdresser?’ And if you are, what in particular are you thankful for? I was pleasantly surprised that almost all of you were thankful for some aspect of crossdressing – just 7% of you thought that crossdressing is just terrible, and there’s nothing to be thankful for. Truly we as a community are blessed to be at a point where the positives of our situation outshine the challenges and heartache.

We also appreciate different blessing of crossdressing. Whether it’s the beauty and makeup, or the understanding it brings, or who we’ve become on this journey. Thank you ladies for sharing the blessings – if you ever need a pick-me-up read through the stories of gratitude that others shared. Reading your comments brought a smile to my face, and helped me shake off any weariness from my transgender journey so far.

Being such a tall woman definitely draws attention and people look closer. I won’t say that I’ve ever been 100% passable, but I was always skinny most of my life. Even when I was only 4’9″ and only 149lbs, then shot up to 6′ 1″ and never gained any weight. I was tall and super thin. The two main things that gave me away were my big hands and adams apple. (and maybe sometimes that unsightly bulge in my panties if I accidentally became untucked As I gained weight over the last several years, it has all gone to the… Read more »

Hi,
I am 5’11” bare feet and I love 4″ heels. I believe it’s the highest I can and want to go because of my height. If I was 5’7″ it would be better, less chance of being read. I am thankful of being a crossdresser.

Hello, I’m 5’11” – never made 6′! For which I am now pleased altho if I were a little shorter that would be easier for me to pass. I dont go out in public ‘en femme” – only to a TG club. I love 10 cm heels (4″) – in fact I’m wearing a pair of 10 cm mules now – they are so comfortable! I tried on some 12 cm (4.7″?) mules last week but found them too difficult to walk in. I was told all I need to do is to practice a bit more! Véronique

Oh My.. I am 6′ tall as it is and I like 2-3″ heels max.. I’ve been told I have nice long legs which gets me alot of attention and I do like attention when en femme… being this tall is one reason I limit my public appearances unless it is at a CD friendly venue and my height slightly affects my ability to “pass” easily although I do and will continue to go out in public because I am not ashamed of being a CD.

I believe that i am the shorter one here. But thats not always the best either. It is really difficult to find jeans that fit. I was browsing today and my size places that i shop just dont have. I am 5′ 6” in stockings and kind of thin. But that is because i am a mileage junkie on a bicycle. I am told to that is one reason that my breasts dont grow with the hormones. but i keep trying and dont plan on giving up. Maybe this winter i will put on some weight and see some growth

I am 5’9 without shoes so I am not overly tall as i could pass as a girl as i have gone out in tight jeans and a hoodie with pink tennis shoes on and even hi heel boots.What a rush it was.I used hair extensions which made me look even more passable.

I dress to feel pretty. I feel so comfortable in boy’s drab or dressed. The difference is I take so long to shop and to prepare. I love shopping for my outfits in total glee. Totally focus on the fun of it all. Guy clothes have never excited me although I do like to look good and dress in a mirrored classic fasion to Molly. I am mostly at one and not separated by what I’m wearing. Oh I have fun being girlish that I can’t be totally when in boy’s drab but the difference is subtle. I wasn’t always… Read more »

I’m 6’8″. I know: doomed! lol

I’m a transsexual just starting out. I haven’t actually gone out in public yet, but am working up to it. It’s hard to imagine passing successful without a lot of experience and work. Finding clothes is going to be an adventure, but one I’m looking forward to. I may end up learning how to sew. We’ll see. Wish me luck!

I was very confused at first too like a lot of you. I went through the stage of being genderqueer in the gay bars and things evolved. I now consider being a gay cd a blessing after all this time
