I have written this post for the benefit of those girls who are new to cross dressing and are striving to find their style and make sense of the fabulous yet bewildering choice of clothes available to them. So come on you experienced girls, please take the time to join in with your advice and choice.
I have started with the skirt. The bra must be the most feminine iconic garment because only females wear them, but the skirt runs a close second. I am not talking about items made specifically for men, but skirts aimed at the female market.
My favourite has to be the A-line Skirt. It comes in many forms e.g lined or unlined, heavy weight or lightweight, and in many colours and patterns. It could have a zip up the back, or a full length zip (usually at the front), or buttons down the front, or have an elasticated waist band. Be high-waisted or sitting on the hips. The one thing in common is the shape:- it is wider around the hem than it is around the waist, hence the flared “A-line” shape. I have also hear it described as a trapeze skirt. The style is as a mini-skirt or longer, but usually mid thigh/above the knee. A Skater skirt is similar but has a more more pronounce flare, and usually has modest pleating due to the wider flare. The above description also applies to A-line and Skater dresses.
There are lots of reasons why this style is my favourite, but here are the key points:
The A-line skirt gives more definition to the female shape because it sits on the waist and accentuates the hips because of the flare. Your shape has improved already! Yay!
Unlike straight or tight skirts you sense more freedom around your thighs. Great when the wind blows up it! Stop it! Swings nicely also.
Teams well with jumpers and blouses. Comes in many materials and patterns. Could go on but I don’t want to bore you too much.
I prefer lined or medium weight skirts because they hang better. Though I do have some lovely lightweight floaty ones too, for hot summer days. My favourite colours bright blue, black, and pink.
