    As my wife is cool and a hundred per cent supportive of my dressing we go on girly shopping expeditions.It’s good fun but there are drawbacks.Sadly, I have to do it in guy mode and the other thing is we have to look out for people we know.We had a most frustrating experience  in the womenswear department of Tesco supermarket in the UK.We both wanted to buy a couple of multipacks of black and navy tights.We had hardly had any room to move because two other lady customers were hovering around.It’s always the way.As a result our browsing felt a little hurried.The wife didn’t pick up enough pairs and I had to tactfully shout out ” Did you want anymore?”.I think she wanted to call out the same thing to me but was mindful of the still hovering ladies.Whenever we go shopping it always has comedy potentiall.On fruitful trips if we are in the ladieswear shops looking for skirts and tops my wife makes a gesture if she knows that there is an item that has taken my fancy.I am sure that the people who go through the CC footage must have a laugh at this sort of thing.I often wonder if the S.A might suspect that half the items we take to the checkout are for me as my wife and I are different skirt sizes.I am so upfront about my crossdressing these days I am beginning to adopt a let them think they are for me philosophy.With the way the world is at the moment life is too precious and short to worry about such things.

      Lovely story, I wish I could do that, there is no way my wife would go with me, which is a shame because I think it would be a laugh. Nerve racking time for me otherwise. Very self conscious when I buy things but I’ve yet to have a bad experience.

      Hi Roberta

      I love the sale rails in Tesco’s…you sometimes get dresses or blouses for £1.00!!….( back off Amanda)..

      Those two women hovering while you were trying to buy tights…good chance one of the was me…haha….and you are right, life is too short

      smiles, grace 💋

      Grace!!!!!! Would I do that to you? 🤔 well if the items are pink Roberta wouldn’t stand a chance, but I’m sure you and me could be civilised and share, after all a friendship is worth more that a dress. We could have a try on session together and each tell a little porky,  that the dresses we really like doesn’t look good the other. There what are friends for,civilised clothes sale shopping.

      Bought my own makeup the other week and there were 2 other guys buying makeup. I also wear my wedding ring and carry a shopping list so it just looks like the clueless husband on a wild goose chase for his wife.

      Shopping is definitely a lot less awkward with a female friend, especially if we wear similar sizes so there’s no reason for the checkout people to ever doubt that they are “for her.”

      My roommate (ex-girlfriend) and I have picked up a few of my outfits from Goodwill this way and it’s so much easier on my anxiety… I’ve tried shopping for stuff there on my own, but on my solo trips it always seems so much more crowded and I feel awkward even looking through the girly clothes with so many random people milling around.

      Someplace like Wal-Mart is easier to do on my own, in comparison.  Especially since I always bring reusable bags, so if I grab some feminine item off a rack I can tuck it down into the bag right away when nobody’s around to see.  And self-checkout of course means nobody will need to see what I’m buying at all.  I grabbed a pair of fishnet thigh-high stockings from the Halloween section last week and it turns out that I love them.  Might get a nicer pair at some point in the future, since I can already tell these probably aren’t going to have a terribly long lifespan, but I’m glad I finally had a chance to try some on.

      This last month or so, I’ve been shopping many times with my SO and youngest daughter, they’ve been awesome and have helped smooth over a couple of awkward moments. As I’m only somewhat femininely dressed in public ATM it’s probably not as obvious to those around me that could take issue with Rei.

      As  my wife does not accept my dressing I have to shop solo.  At first I was timid and weary, but Amanda says, no one bats an eye!  I bought tights yesterday at a Walgreens and it was like buying candy.

      Roberta, just go  shopping in the department store in your man mode, nobody bat’s an eyelid that your buying female clothes  at all nowadays.

      Roberta….

      Thanks for sharing…

      It’s awesome that your wife is so supportive of your dressing up. Wished my (Ex)wife was as accepting.

      Gen 💋
