    Hi everyone, I’m Greta Lafolle, am I a beginner MTF CD? Or a novice MTF transvestite? If I knew for sure, probably, I would not be here looking for a form of help to become aware of it.

    I am 53 years old, physically I am muscle-curvy, I am starting a new food plan to lose a few extra pounds that weighs down my abdomen.

    Since I turned 13, I have been secretly wearing women’s underwear (panties, tights).

    Excluding the underwear that I know by now, I have problems converting my male sizes to female. Example: my t-shirts or shirts are all 3xl, my pants are 4xl, my shoes / sneakers are 45 or sometimes 46 and my ankle is thick.

    I’m 186cm tall, so I guess I’m not the ideal candidate for super high-heeled shoes, I think 8cm heel

    If I could figure out how to convert the sizes I would be happier.

    I love wearing make-up …… I like it so much that I have been using mascara in my daily life for more than 20 years now.

      Ciao Greta and wonderful to meet you.

      There are many resources online to assist with the sizing of clothes, I have posted one here to help you on your way…..

      https://www.roanyer.com/blog/finding-your-size-a-guide-to-getting-well-fitting-womens-clothes-for-crossdressers/

      If you buy online the better retailers will have accurate sizing guides and their preferred way of measuring,  also keep an eye on the various regional standards US/EU/AU/ etc when reading the sizing guides. Almost all online retail outlets will accept returns and /or offer refunds at no cost. There are several in Australia and the States I have used and they are excellent.

      Happy shopping!

        Really surprising, I thank you infinitely, for the links you suggested to me, as soon as I have a few minutes of calm I will carefully navigate them.

        You have been super nice with me.

      Hello, Greta.  Welcome.

      I have found that most websites for businesses selling women’s apparel will have sizing information for their clothes based on one’s body measurements.  If you get a tapemeasure and take some measurements (or have someone else measure you), you should have no problem finding clothes that fit.  If you feel up to it, you could also visit stores in person and try things on.

        Unfortunately I live in the south of Italy and the mentality of the people is still very closed on certain topics.

        You have no idea how many times I have gone to a tailor or a seamstress to expressly ask to take my measurements (paying for their labor) as if she were taking them for a woman; every time I did it I aroused their hilarity and in addition I was the target of a series of embarrassing questions typical of gossip people.

        I bought some clothes online, but it’s not always easy given the difference between International, European and American or Asian sizes. Many times it happens to receive clothing that you have to send back because it is too narrow or too wide, it would be much easier and hasty to be able to enter a store (knowing your own measurements/size) and try on the clothing in the dressing room.

      Hi Greta, it’s nice to meet you.  You are lucky that you have enough eyelashes to wear mascara.  My eyelashes are practically nonexistent so I have to wear false eyelashes which area pain to put on.  I hope you post a photo so we can see how pretty you are.

        If I can give you a suggestion try using Ricinus Communis seed oil to grow your eyelashes; first results after 4 or 5 months or try Peony Limitless Eyelash Serum
