The power of a dress

What is it about a dress that captivates us so? When I see a sexy dress in the store my body tingles. I imagine myself wearing the dress, I imagine myself looking as good as the woman I see wearing it.

The perfect swoop of a well tailored dress, revealing just enough to entice, hugging my body like a lover. The femininity of it captures my imagine, and lights a fire in my soul. To be such a delicate creature as to wear this dress. That is divine.

You may ask me why I feel this way. To that I’m not sure. As surely as the need to breathe and express life in this world I need to wear this dress. Is this wrong? Wrong would be to deny who I am.

I’m passionate about creating a safe space for everyone in the transgender community to find laughter and friendship on their journey. I completed my physical transition in 2011 and through it I lost everything, and gained everything. I am blessed that I was forced to gaze inward and embark on the journey to discover and live my authentic self. My deepest wish is that all who wander here may find peace, happiness and freedom.

If we take the fact you are male out of the picture then it is less mysterious why you feel that way. (I am female by the way) I know many men who are not cross dressers but do lament their woeful lack of choice of fabric, colour and shape in mens clothing. NOT all cultures are like the West in the regard. There are others where the mens clothes are every bit as fabulous as a womans, jewells and sequins etc. Can a man get tingly over a t-shirt or pair of jeans, extremely unlikely! So if a man… Read more »

I have lots and lots of skirts and different styles of tops and they are my normal look both at home and out and about. But,when I wear a dress[my wife has made some and reworked others] I get a different feeling.I can only describe it as what comes from being encased in a truly feminine outfit and totally committed to it..I love the look but as I am muscular in the shoulders,it isn’t every dress that looks right as I feel like Shrek when I try an outfit that doesn’t work. Happy dressing,Rogina

I also feel as Lady Gray says. I enjoy wearing the skirts and dresses and have often wondered if I just have a clothes fetish. I love the feel and of different fabics and love to look at different prints of clothing. Its one of the reasons I love to buy clothing from the womens side of the store. I still wonder if that is my interest. At this point of my life I probably should seek theripy but if clothes buying makes me happy( and it does!)

Oh I agree. I think I love dressing so much is because I feel women’s clothes, women’s clothes have emotion, they dress according to how they feel, the occasion, to express the moment they’re in. Men’s clothes are just that, something to put on, no emotion attached. I love the “feeling", it’s expressive, and it brings out those feelings inside me that we normally don’t feel as men. It’s harder being a woman, but it’s so worth it.
