Welcome to CDH.
I understand different states Have different practices as this pandemic continues? Some states allow the stores to open their dressing rooms; others have different guidelines. I went bra shopping a few weeks ago at Victoria Secret and their rooms were closed. Recently went to Torris and Lane Bryant and was able to try on some clothing.
Thanks for sharing your experience. It is wonderful to try on a skirt and be treated like a GG.

We have a similar situation here in MD that Betty Lou mentioned in Texas… some stores have opened up their dressing rooms, such as Macy’s and JC Penney, while others (like Kohls, Target, and Walmart) have not opened up their rooms.
I have not had the courage to go into a women’s shop (such as Ann Taylor or Lane Bryant) to try anything on… big department stores are easy as the rooms are not typically attended so I just walk right in and try on what I want to try on…
same lack of courage pervades when shopping in discount stores like Ross, Marshalls, or TJ Maxx… in male mode, I don’t try things on… I might if en femme, but I have not been able to go out as Mikayla since my wife found out about my cross-dressing in April/May (she is not keen on it).

Before COVID-19, I didn’t have any problems going to shops and trying things on in the correct gender-assigned changing room for my appearance.
Assistants were generally super helpful, but I did leave a couple of shops where they weren’t.
Their loss of a sale.
I think, as long as you’re comfortable and confident with the image you’re presenting, you should have no issues – and if anyone has a problem with it, that’s their problem, not yours!
