Every crossdresser should shop here at least once

As a transgendered woman out shopping for clothes I’ve found that service can be a mixed bag. Usually the assistants are polite. Less often have I found them to be genuinely enthusiastic about selling ladies clothes to men.

Their lack of enthusiasm does not deter me though – and shouldn’t deter you either 🙂 This weekend I was out shopping in guy mode and had a phenomenal experience at a local Lucy Activewear. This was the second time I’ve shopped at Lucy, and the second time they provided stellar service – so much so that I felt compelled to share this with you.

Now, you may have already skipped to www.lucy.com to check out their selection. This leaves me wondering why you left in the middle of my post <grin>, and may leave you wondering why I pay $60 for a pair of yoga pants (like those in the image above I bought on the weekend) when Fred Meyer sells them for $20.

Two to three times a week I enjoy ninety minutes of hot yoga. It’s not only a great workout, but leaves me feeling cleansed from the inside when I’m done. I’ve found that what you wear in the sweltering heat makes the difference between a mediocre, frustrating practice and a truly uplifting one. Form fitting, moisture wicking, high quality clothes are a must. I’ve found that the clothes I buy from Lucy fit perfectly, look great and are a true joy to wear during hot yoga practice.

Okay, enough gushing about the quality of their clothes…

A Crossdresser Buys Yoga Capri’s

The first time I went into Lucy’s I was a bit nervous. It had been a while since I’d shopped for women’s clothes in person and wasn’t quite sure how it would be received. The lady helping me asked whether I was looking for someone, and I could see a warm friendly smile on her face when I told her that I was shopping for myself. She helped me find a few items, let me try them on, and even gave suggestions on what her male customers typically liked to wear. An A+ move for a crossdresser friendly store. After some small talk I left the store feeling overjoyed.

This weekend the experience was equally as wonderful. Though it was clear the shop assistant was a bit taken aback, she was eager to help me find what I was looking for. As I was checking out I met the lady who helped me on my first trip to Lucy. She recognized me and we chatted for a while. A nice way to end my shopping spree…

Shopping at Lucy is a great experience. If you’re looking for high quality ladies active wear and a friendly environment I highly recommend them.

Have you had a great experience with a crossdresser friendly store? Comment and let me know. Other ladies will appreciate the tips on where to shop and stores that are accepting deserve the good publicity.

Until next time, Hugs

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 shopped at Lucy’s in Tyson’s Corner, Virginia last week, buying shorts and leggings. The assistant was very helpful. I’ll certainly shop there again.

Also the staff in the lingerie department at Macy’s (Tyson’s Corner) were excellent too, commenting on my choices and bargains. “Wet Seal", a shop I’d not heard of, also deserves a mention for it’s helpful assistants.

All in all, a great shopping day. And the clothes all fit wonderfully.

If your a Canadian a very good store to shop in is Le Steza. I went there in drab and said that I was shopping for myself and got very friendy and helpful service. Another store is Reitmans. I went there and asked for the sales ladies advice on what colours and styles would look good for me, she adised me on the colours and styles and wrote them down for me. She even said that it was nice to see a “guy" who had the same trouble as the women who go shopping for clothes. Shoppers Drugs is another… Read more »
