      I am in the position where my opportunities to dress fully are very limited. Now I know I dont have to tell you all about the struggle between those times. But what I would love to hear is. What ways have you found to express your femininity during the dry season? It seems at times like clothes rule our world so much. However I suspect there are plenty of other ways to show your feminine side. Please comment if you do something other than what is listed in the poll.

      Hugs,
      Erika

      I try to undress as much as possible. I love putting on a matching bra and panty set for the day. My wife knows but has a rule that whatever I put on has to be totally undetectable. Easy in the Michigan winters, very difficult in the summer, lol. I also love doing my toe nails, easy to hide or maybe seen, depending on where I am.

    • #739886

      I said “I don’t”, because there is never a time when I’m not dressed as I’m a trans woman. The only time I’m not dressed is in the shower… 🙂

      Underdressing is expressing femininity, so I selected “I don’t”.

      Well I’m trans so there’s that.  I’m not hiding anything.  No “dry season” for this girl. I get gendered female regularly.  20+ months of HRT will do that.  I chose other.

        HRT. I have considered doing it. Any worthwhile mentioning negatives? Best Marlene.

          The biggest negative for a guy would be loss of function and sterility.  Loss of function will start to become noticeable after a few months.  Sterility after about a year.  If you’re trans you may not care.  Less common but still a concern is blood clots.  There are several ways to mitigate that risk.

            Is loss of function and/or sterility reversible if HRT is stopped?

            Liz K
            Managing Ambassador

            I’m no expert, but my understanding is yes for the first year or so.  After that, function may return but permanent sterility is likely.

            Baroness - Annual

            Digging a bit deeper, what is the reason for loss of function or sterility… testosterone blockers, taking estrogen, or something else? Does taking estrogen cause one to lose the ability to produce testosterone?

          • #740379
            Liz K
            Managing Ambassador

            My understanding is anti-androgens (blockers) and estrogen can both cause loss of function and inhibit your ability to produce testosterone.  I don’t have detailed knowledge of the pharmacology that estrogen and blockers have on the male body.  UCSF has a good discussion of feminizing HRT: https://transcare.ucsf.edu/guidelines/feminizing-hormone-therapy.  You can probably find a ton of info on PubMed too.

      Apart from a few occasions, the only time I’m not dressed as a woman is when I’m in work. I’m off work due to ill health for 4 weeks, so I’m dressed most of the time. Most of today I was in Drab mode as that was the mood I was in.
      When I’m not dressed, I’m always wearing female underwear.
      When in drab mode, I always wear earrings. Always a pair, not always masculine 😉

    • #739946

      I don’t get time to dress hardly at all, but at this point in my bi-gender journey, my feminine and masculine persona are so enmeshed that my world view, my thoughts and feelings, my perceptions of life and of myself are the views, thoughts, feelings, and perceptions of a single bi personality called me. I love when my feminine side does get to shine in her expression, whether dressing fully feminine or underdressing, but for me it is that merging of the two personalities into one bi person that is most important, or I’d drive myself crazy trying to keep them separate. I hope all that makes sense.

      For other, I feel feminine regardless of being dressed. Dressing doesn’t make me feminine internally. For me it acts as liberating reassurance and helps me feel externally feminine when Michelle comes out.

      I underdress 24/7  and at night sleep femme, (in my own room and bed). Summer is my favorite, all silk lingerie underneath, silk nightie on top. Winter, is fleecy floral pj’s, thermal short sleeve cami and 40 denier tights on my creaky old arthritic knees. All seasons, except on very hot summer nights, will have me wearing a bra and breast forms

      About every second or third day, I’ll wear an undetectable bralette along with whatever seasonal wear I have on at the time.

      Happy  (year ’round )dressing

      I voted Other. Unfortunately, I have to present my daily domestic life in “male mode”; to express my femininity I let my fingernails grow “longer” and I have used white nail polish to “french tip” my toe nails.

      Hi Erika, there are a few things i do when i can’t get to dress, sometimes i sit and file my nails even in front of my wife,if she asks me why i just say that they are all jagged and sharp she is always saying I’ve got Sharp nails so doesn’t think twice about my filing them down, when I’m reading a magazine I’ll always turn to the women’s fashion pages first just to see what the latest fashion’s are then in some magazines they have a few pages for wedding venues and i love to look at the bride’s in their dresses and think i would love to wear one of those,

        I love that you brought up looking at magazines. That takes me back. I remeber when I first started exploring these feeling I would read my moms magazines like Vogue Elle Cosmo. The fashion the, the articles, the quizzes, the smells. They were so interesting to read and were an integral part of my coming of age.

      If I can’t put on a skirt or a dress, then I go androgynous. Womens jeans or pants, womens long sleeved tops and athletic shoes or other shoes that work and look like mens stuff. I will always be underdressed and wear a sports bra. Leave off the forms & wig & I fit right in.

      I had to vote other. And “it” reared it’s head this past week. I was vacationing in DC. Especially on warmer days walking the national mall, my thing is looking at the gorgeous women. And NOT for the same desires I might have had say 40, 45 years ago. Today I’m looking at their makeup. How did they get that look done? What they are wearing… some barely wearing. And of course it the woman was taller than me, is it one of US!

        Yesterday, I was walking behind a young woman watching how she moved her hips. They swung back and forth rather than staying statically straight the way most people walk. It was her natural gait rather than something that she did consciously. Fascinating.

    • #740079

      Hi Erika,  I chose Other, but still am somewhat conflicted.  Perhaps because daily I don’t try to look pretty,  just nice.  I’m out all the time and live in a semi-fluid female world.  I wear female clothes because they fit me the best but I really dress in a rather drab pattern.  I really enjoy glamming up and partying but the reality is that while I could do it all the time, I don’t, because I need to be realistic about my life duties.  My wardrobe is that of an older woman.  So most of the time I look like an old soccer grandma.  Not sloppy, but plain.  I have long blond hair that is usually just stuffed in my hat or tied in a bun.  My daily jeans are not skin tight (I leave that for glamming time) but they are rather loose and comfortable.  While I wear a bra daily it usually isn’t real noticeable under my floppy flannel or jean shirt.  My nails are a moderate length but I don’t paint or add press-ons or do makeup unless I’m going out.  So with all this said, I still think of myself as feminine each day even though I may not look like I’m expressing that outwardly.  I’m just an intersex person living my life. I hope that this explanation of my life style makes sense to some people.   Thanks for this thought provoking question.  Marg

    • #740089

      Hiya, cutie; my opportunities for dressing are not that limited – other than by my being terrified of being found out…  Occasionaly, however, I find myself in the position of wanting what I can’t have – and then…  Well, underdressing is always fantastic, though (inevitably) a little less than what I want.  What I find helps most, however, is quite simple; I log on to CDH, check out the photos, probably spend 20 minutes or so in the chat room and generally catch up!  Love you:  Holly XXX

      I underdress nearly all the time… bra, panties, and perhaps pantyhose. I have almost no men’s underwear.  I also don’t remove paint from toenails and often wear pierced earrings. I have not had a haircut in well over a year, so pull my hair back and let it hang in a ponytail. At some point I likely will style it. I wear a nylon nightgown to bed, which my SO tolerates to the extent of laying out a gown for me and/or packing one if traveling, but she won’t tolerate anything too sexy, bodyshapers, or bra at night; for awhile she was ok with a slip or bra-slip, but that tide turned… I do more if alone

      Personally, I find cdh a great way to express myself, when I can’t dress. When I’m here I am Melanie, even when I’m not presenting as her. This place helps me get through the droughts in a way I cant possibly express.
      Another way to scratch my femme itch is music. I’m not a musician but simply closing my eyes and listening, can transport me away to that happy place.

      Several, being on CDH,  texting sisters or calling them, shopping in line and in person,  clear polish nails, hand washing my intimates, going thru the closet that holds Lorraine’s wardrobe, and mentally planing next dressing session.  See ya later, headed to the closet !

        Lady

        Don’t worry, people noticed.

        In a local food market, they have a male cashier with hair long enough to be in a ponytail. He also has longish fingernails, so he has to use the pads on his fingers on a keyboard. I haven’t said anything to him yet, either, but everybody can easily notice them.

        • #740441
          Angela Wagner

          Yes, the other day I noticed the long nails on a male bank teller when I was withdrawing some money. And they looked good! But even when people notice, they usually don’t care or say anything. And as you just pointed out, more men are wearing their nails long. So I don’t mind this little bit of “femininity” in my male appearance.

    • #740472

      Underdressing, long fingernails, long hair, shaving body hair (as well as IPL on feet/toes, chest, and lower back). I kinda want to get a mani-pedi next, but I’m pretty sure the wife won’t love it. But it’s either that or shaving my legs.

    • #740488

      I still work from home.  So I get to enjoy underdressing each work day (can’t and don’t have time to do a full transformation during work days though).

      And since I wfh, I am on cdh often.

      The last tidbit is spritizing perfume marketed to girls.  I have some in my collection that is notably feminine, really sweet smelling almost like being in a candy store.

    • #740528

      I voted “other” because of my work and family limits my chances to fully beautify myself.
      However my way of expressing my femininity is just being myself. Since i was a little boy I was very much more emotional than my friends. I’m extremely sensitive, compassionate and at ease with my feminine side. I consider myself as 50-50 when it comes to personality.

      I’ve enjoyed reading several of the various comments. Although I’m not one who would be considered an underdresser,  I have been known to enjoy wearing a pair of panties every once in awhile. For me, keeping my body hair free, and with pierced ears, wearing small hoop earrings 24/7 helps keep me focused as well. And of course CDH. Also shopping for that new hair or wardrobe item(s) , makeup etc. helps with the drought I am currently having!! 🥰

    • #740605

      I chose Under dressing but other things such as longer than average nails give me a boost to keep me going during long bouts of unavoidable drab mode. Sitting to pee makes me feel more femme too especially pulling up your knickers and hose/tights afterwards. It also has the added advantage of not disturbing your sleep too much during the night as you don’t have to concentrate as much and put on the lights to aim (ha ha).

    • #740638

      Well, during the times between dressing en femme events, I love to dress at home when I’m alone. Takes me back to my childhood sessions of dressing in sister’s or mom’s clothes. I also love being here on CDH, taking surveys, chatting with other girls, and reading transgender porn.

    • #740731

      Thank you so much for asking this question Erika! I have been wondering the same for ages as well.

      I chose dance and music. I have always loved dancing and in a feminine way so everyone I know isn’t shocked by me dancing. I am very lucky that I have a friend that I can (mostly) act myself around and so we have lovely conversations about very feminine things, I help her pick out shoes, bags and dresses when shopping. I also love making small flower arrangements out of flowers I can pick. These can be for me only for a little while or for someone I choose to give them to.

      Even with all these little things, I am always desperate for more. Please keep us all updated on things you try and if they are successful!

      • #740787

        I love when my wife asks me for advice on which pair of shoes looks better with her outfit.

        Flower arranging is a new one.  My wife will like it if I take that up more.  Dancing, underdressing, and CDH were always my outlets.  But now Ive incorporated keeping my eybrows neatly trimmed and add in mannerisms when I can.  And listening to podcasts seems to scratch that itch too.

      Look I’m someone that is comfortable in my skin and I’m not really into feminity. I am more into looking like a man in a dress mode 80% of the time.

      Honesty, I think men look better in women’s clothing when they look like men in women’s clothing. I know I’m just weird. But thats how my brain works.

      Like I wish they would make some dresses with a more masculine flare. Like a real mans man dress.

      I think I went off topic or did I?

      Who know, but I got my point across. Just because your a cross dresser. That does mean you have to be girly.

      I’m living proof and I see some others online that do this masculine girly thing.

        I totally understand and get you. There are times where I’m crossing and say that I’m looking manly but wear this dress or pants with a blouse and I’m rocking it in a manly way. I would love to see “the manly dress“. But it is true that other than the Irish or Scottish kilt, there really isn’t a manly dress. But for the most part I’m expressing and experimenting with my femininity.

      • #740792

        Interesting. I too am comfortable in my own skin and have never felt like I was born in the wrong body but my dressing is about being what is  conventionally feminine, pretty materials, delicate fabrics, partially covered/revealed, etc. I can imagine that a mens dress would be plain, thick, rugged material and would not interest me at all.

          See I’m thinking of a mans man type of dress.

          Because they idea came to me when I was working the roof in a skirt, or on the car and I ruined a perfectly good skirt because it was not tough enough

          But I was not also not planing on working on either one. They were kinda like emergency kinda things.

        I’m kind of with you on that one I think Hippie. The idea of masculinity and femininity and which resides within which sex is a pretty abstract and fluid construct anyway. Have you tried a cord or denim pinafore dress? They accomodate male shapes pretty well – as do shift dresses. Take a look at Greek historical figures too; the Chiton was worn by men and women.

          Well like this morning, I’m going over to my buddies house for a cookout.

          I plan on having my hairy legs showing under a broomstick wrinkled skirt that is a shiny black with white roses from Kohl’s department store.

          Pair of men’s sandals (can’t find women’s sandals in a wide 14)

          Then put on my baggy wife beater tank top and my big wide brim fedora hat

          One more thing, like right now, my wife and I are doing our nails. My nails are being painted right now as we speak a bright white to match the roses on the skirt.

          That’s how I’m kicking it today

          I figure if I’m going to make a scene, be seen.

          Hippie

    • #740780

      Erika I usually go with gestures. I have fun being in total drab but give a hand gesture like checking my nails or throwing my wrist backwards and then almost throwing my arm outstretched to the side as I have major pinky finger up and out on the other hand like with a fork. I also push my limits on a manicure that eventually gets sanded down smooth to take off the shine. My recent venture out I got this most beautiful manicure in a French style and they had to put some pink base with a half moon white tip. I wore it for five hours only to have to sand it down asap before my wife saw it. Yes I did cry just a little and wanted so bad to leave them on. Oh I found Burt’s Bees chapped stick with a red tint but I’m always caught and have to wipe it off. Of course there is always posture. For example crossed legs and hands draped across my lap or knees as well as shoulders and don’t forget the tilted head. That’s just to name a few. I try to free Kaitlyn whenever possible!!!

      Interesting discussion. I am semi-closeted, meaning wife knows and tolerates Elaine but doesn’t want me going out, and some of my friends know. I get plenty of opportunities to dress but also go thru some dry spells when life events don’t allow for dressing (like now). During those dry spells I try several tactics to stay in touch with my femininity.  First I think about dressing almost all the time. I suppose we all have a fantasy life, mine is always in lady mode. I total body shave and use lotions regularly to keep my skin soft; trim and pluck my facial hair; manicure my nails (either DIY or occasionally treat myself to a professional), and try to stay height and weight proportionate. When exercise walking I practice my lady walk. I complement ladies I see that are well kept (nails, hair, jewelry, outfit, shoes..,) That sometime leads to nice fem discussions. And read anything I can find about trans or CD nonfiction.  Of course CDH is a big help also.  I am so grateful for this site.

      Hi Erika,

      I answered I don’t. In my private space I live entirely as a woman but when I have company as shall have next week I switch the male mode as I do when it is not possible to be totally female. Honesty compels me to admit this is getting harder but I expect I shall enjoy myself nonetheless.

      Like many ladies have said before, I underdress all the time and I shave over my whole body.  That keeps the feeling right.  Also I will often wear jewellery such as anklets if I am not wearing tights or stockings.

      Hi Erika, well, I had to think about several of the options for some time to reflect on why or why not I do those things.

      I used to underdress at times, but for several reasons, I gave it up.  First as a male I tend to sweat (as opposed to dressing female where I only perspire), so an extra layer does not work very well for me in many cases.

      I would like , and have tried, to grow longer fingernails, but I have those vertical ridges or striations or whatever on my nails and just accidently shoving a hand against a hard surface or object and the split goes about a 1/4 ” in which means, a full cutback of the entire nail. And once the nail gets close to the edge of that finger, the chances for cracking dramatically increase.

      Now, I do exercise, but only to keep fit and/or reduce weight.  I did have barbells once a long time ago, but just a little after that pretty much gave up on trying to do anything to increase muscle mass. Now, it’s just to keep slim and keep weight at least in check if not reduce (and, of course, exercise gets into the sweat/perspire issue above).

      I do write, and some are sort of published, one on Amazon Kindle, the rest of fictionmania.

      And finally, on several online game type sites or tg related (like fm above or here), I use an alter ego/non de plume.

      Small alternatives, but they give me some respite.

      Hugs, ChloëC

        That is a  very thoughtful response.

      My “other” is being here on CDH. I also go on other forums. There are online CD activities that are just wolves wanting to play with themselves. I think for us more closeted types it helps keep us sane.

      I also love looking at clothes. I can spend a couple of hours on eBay going through some of the vintage clothing.

      We all do what we can.

      This is a timely topic for me since I will not be able to dress until fall. I don’t normally underdress but I will now wear panties when the pink fog is heavy. I always walk, stand and sit like a lady but not so obvious that people will notice. I care for my skin like a lady and cleanse and moisturize daily. I would like to grow my nails out but that’s not ok with my wife. I do keep clear polish on my toenails. She also doesn’t like shaved legs but I can and do shave my upper body. I keep my eyebrows trimmed and lightly plucked but not so much that they are obviously feminine. I work on my feminine voice when alone in my car. I interact with women as much as possible and make it a point to compliment them like a women would and engage in girly topics with them. And last but certainly not least is keeping in touch with my sisters here on CDH.

        There definitely seems to be a summer slump for many ladies out there.  I know it hits me too.

          This seasonality is new to me (but not surprising), Erika, so I have to ask.

          Is it because CDs figure that they can’t hide under heavier clothing in warm weather? It’s kind of difficult to hide in short-shorts and a tight fitting T-shirt.

            Yes I think the hotter weather definitely has an impact.  The other one is that a lot of have kids in school. And those working from home will no longer be a lone.

      My list would include shaving, shopping, doing my laundry, clear polish.

      I like to sneak a bit of lipstick whenever I can. If feels so wonderfully feminine, and I can wear it in public knowing most people won’t notice, and they few that do…oh well. At times I wear a bolder color that is more noticeable, but wear a subtle shade most often. I will do the same with a little make up at times as well. A touch of blush, maybe some mascara.

        I have seen a woman wearing tinted chapstick lately. I wonder if I could pull that off if this tint isn’t too revealing?

          I find good quality lipstick vastly superior to chapstick. I would look for a neutral lipstick color that matches your lip color, or is just a bit off if you want to be a touch bolder. That way you get to wear lipstick and have supple lips to boot. My go to is L’Oreal, but nave used MAC as well. Off brands just are not as creamy and do not have the wonderful feel  the above do.

      Hi Erika I underdress as much as I can wearing bra ,panties and pantyhose ,now that it is getting warmer ,the bra is not always possible which is a great shame as it is by far my favorite item of undies .Nightime all of the above plus a nightie , I also paint my toenails ,sit like a lady ,sit down to pee and practice my walk when I can ,I love all of the above but wish I could fully dress as a female wearing female clothing all the time ,will that ever happen I don’t think so           Michelle xx

      I usaully dress in male boxer shorts and a ovr sized tank top or t shirt. Lately weekend morning coffee with wife. I’ve been only dressed in oversized tank top or t shirt. The icing on the the cake would be. For me to be hairless.

    • #742610

      can be just a touch of mascara on my brows and lashes or just clear nail polish on lovely shaped nails. At times a clear lippy or just pushing my female mannerisms.

    • #742762

      Why not always express the feminine so that everyone can see that you are really a girl?  For me that means being a feminine male presentation with a femme pixie hairstyle, women’s purse, women’s sandals with professionally pedicured fire engine red toenails.

      Wear some nude eyeliner on my lower lid, a clear mascara, & maybe a bit of lip gloss (w/ a hint of color.) Manicure my brows. Mannerisms, or the way I sit. Underdressing too. They all make we feel feminine and nice since I get to dress maybe once a week.

      I only get to dress a few times a year but I try to fully underdress twice a week, wear as much as possible lol and on occasion I’ll put some foundation on and lipstick. That’s about all I can get away with. I keep my legs n chest shaved as well. Working on wearing a skirt whilst I’m not mode but getting resistance from my SO on that one 😀

        That balance with the SO is not an easy achievement.   Im glad you get to do as much as you do between dressings.  Very lucky to be able to be smooth.

      I have replaced a lot of my everyday clothes with items that are androgynous or female but not overtly. As an example, all of my hiking shorts and tops are women’s. On cooler days, I wear women’s leggings. My sneakers are also women’s too. I know that they are female clothes so it makes me feel better and on close inspection I would image that others can see it too, but I feel I can get away with it when in the dreaded male mode.

        Thats a smart way to express your self.  I like the way your thinking.

      I live alone and at home a pretty A or AA pushup bra from Pepper, a pretty pair of panties and my flipflops are the best. I also got myself a simple necklace, a single thin leather strand with a sleeve of silver and it’s delightful. Out in the world I don’t have the nerve to wear the bra, but well … As for hot weather and bras, a little dewiness inside my bra just makes me feel all the more authentic

        Thats the first time I’ve heard that as a reason to feel authentic but I tottaly get it.  I like putting a bra on but also love taking it off.

          I think it’s just that a little bit of noticing that I’m sticking to the inside and then shrugging to unstick is an on-and-off reminder, a nice intermittent psychological reinforcement, that my little boobs are still there and that I’m still a girl!

        Youre so lucky to have long hair.  Id do the same thing if I could.

      Colors are definitely powerful.  Ive even found myself making man mode fashion choices that are more colorful and stylish.
