Science shows us a feminine walk

Finding Your Crossdressing Walk

Researchers recently attached lights to people walking to study the characteristics of a feminine walk, and a masculine walk. Here you can find a short video showing the crossdressing walk. You’ll notice that the more feminine walk shows the hips rotating in a swinging fashion while the shoulders rotate in response. I’ve seen a few transvestites who try to swing their hips while keeping their shoulders straight. This looks, and feels awkward.

Another hallmark of the feminine walk is keeping your legs close together, while your feet seem to be treading an invisible line. This is difficult to do if you’re wearing heels, and can look a bit overdone if you cross your feet in front of you. In the video you’ll see that the feminine walk is a bit exaggerated, but it’s instructive when you look at the more masculine walks.

A lack of swinging in the hips and more balanced legs are more masculine. If you’re knees are pointed outward with your center of gravity on your chest area you’ll quickly be read as a man.

I found this video to contain some valuable advice for the transgendered looking to improve their feminine walk. Remember – keep your center of gravity over your hips, stand up straight and keep your legs closer together!

Happy Crossdressing!

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 am blessed that I was forced to gaze inward and embark on the journey to discover and live my authentic self. My deepest wish is that all who wander here may find peace, happiness and freedom.

I have been wearing heels for a while now and it took me some time to learn to balance. I practiced the walk in tennis shoes and watched how women walk . Finally learned to be more natural in my gait and more comfortable
