      Thankyou Berta for bringing this to my attention,   Some post leaving links are full of good intention, some are just what amounts to spam,    Usually any advert that mention clothes designed for tranny's, trans people is overpriced, bad quality or both, that any 'normal; woman would not be seen dead in.    Open crutch panties included. lol, for those that have difficulty purchasing accesories and clothes from normal' womens shops should just order on line from a reputable womans store.

      This poster was running a poll that has now expired and that's why I thought the 2 postings should be removed.

      I am in complete agreement with you, my limited "Berta" shopping is done just about 100% on-line via eBay and plus size CD friendly sites I've used before. The only delemma I cannot solve for my huge Berta sized gurl is where I can find some simply made and priced satin brief style panties to fit my 50-52 inch waist and 54 inch hips. I am a full time satin panty lover and wearer but my collection is fast wearing out and the vendors I purchased from no longer offer them. If your femme shopping has had any good results in that area of my need I'd love to hear back from you. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

      Hello Everyone ,

      I hope you are all well , I am a fashion student and I am currently looking into the possibility of developing a lingerie line for the transgender community as I have noticed that theres nothing out there and it would help me out alot if you can take 2 minutes of your time to complete my survey.

      I think this needs to be removed along with it's duplicate below. I tried the link today 4/29/2017 at 2:45 PM EDT and it is no longer a valid link. Just thought I'd save others from wasting their time as I just have done!

    • My favourite lingerie shop is Spicy Lingerie. Because they have a huge collection of bra, lingerie, costumes, bikini and many more, so I can easily find my suitable outfits from there. You want to see my lingerie. It is here.

      I only buy online when I search high and low through my city and can't find what I'm looking for.

      I agree that finding something in person, and being able to try it first, is optimal. Unfortunately that doesn't work well in my case. My town is small and doesn't have a lot of options for shopping.

       

      However, I do mitigate the hassles of online returns by ordering only clothing that has measurements included. This is especially true on eBay. If an item doesn't have measurements given, I pass on it. There's plenty of sellers who do take the time to provide measurements, and some of my best finds have been found online.

       

      (now to plan for a trip to the big city for some shopping...)

    • June 6, 2016 11:46 PM BST
    • Online is convienient (I can never spell that word correctly) but it's dicey when buying something other than a t-shirt. I really need to try stuff on, and if I have to return something, it's easier in person than playing the whole back and forth with an online store.

       

      Plus, me and a good girlfriend of mine love to shopping together, so it's an activity. It's fun. Online isn't the same. I only buy online when I search high and low through my city and can't find what I'm looking for.

    • March 8, 2016 7:49 PM GMT
    • For me, the only way to shop is to spend a day with a girlfriend or two browsing the shops in the morning, trying on lots of outfits and buying a few. Then it's time to enjoy a little lunch in a cafe before round two in the afternoon.

    • I have shopped the thrifts but I really like Kohls store. They have clothes MY size and unisex dressing rooms. So even in drab I can grab a handful and head to the dressing rooms. Also their sales are great so I am getting NEW clothes. So nice. Undies I do mostly on line as I know what I like and can wait for sales. Shoes are from payless, get the bogo sales and you can do pretty good. I stock up on make up when in the big city. It is just fun to shop and even in drab, blending with other women shoppers.

    • That has been my experience also Nichola. We are just another paying customer at the end of the day. Which is as it should be.

       

      It's a pity about the group but it's a familiar story. I underastand that not everyone wants to or is able to go out in public, but many do want to and just need to pluck up the courage. We've all been there and the first time out is not as scary as you imagined it to be. It does sound as if you will get nowhere here though. What a shame for them. 

       

    • April 4, 2016 6:19 PM BST
    • Yes with you now. I won't be taking them anywhere - I realised I was banging my head against a brick wall. I left them to sort it out themselves. I totally agree - TG people need to go into the real world, the more of us out there, the more normal, and accepting, the rest of society will become. Thats my philosophy totally. By them only going out as a group they won't do this and I hate to say it they will draw attntion to themselves by not integrating. I have appeared on daytime TV here many times and even spoke on topics - so people here see me on their TVs and have got used to me. I go into anywhere I chose and don't expect anything except total respect from the shop staff. I was hoping I would be tolerated, expected to be accepted but in most shops, pubs and restaurants I am positively welcomed.

    • I did understand the reason Nichola, and I was referring to the TG group when I said 'go where you like'. Perhaps I should have said 'take them wherever you like'. 

      TG people need to go into the real world, the more of us out there, the more normal, and accepting, the rest of society will become.   

    • April 3, 2016 4:32 PM BST
    • I am not sure if you grasped the reason for my post Nikki - I don't have a problem anywhere - I just go in - I don't stop or even hesitate. It was the local TG group that had a problem - so much so I left them to sort it out. I think these people like to set themselves apart from society rather than integrate. A sort of reverse discrimination. I agree with your points - I just would not go into those places anyway and never have - self preservation. I don't have issues - I was born in East London and I certainly don't have issues with any reatioler, pub, restaurant anyway and hopoefuly never will have. if I did I would sort it out and I think I would do alright out it.

    • Nichola, you are quite right to say you should go anywhere you want, times have changed and being TG is not the issue it once was. I am in agreement with Lucy in that if girls only visit TG friendly places, they will never go anywhere else, and that would be a shame. 

      Businesses want your money and are not likely to cause a fuss these days so you should just go to a suitable venue of your choice. There are always some pubs and bars you wouldn't want to go, TG or otherwise, but that is the same everywhere. 

      A restaurant receiving a group booking with a possibility of future bookings coming from it will not be lost of the managment. 

      For what it's worth, I have never been anywhere near a 'TG friendly' place and have never had any problems. I have been to Swindon lots of times over the years and I don't believe you would have any issues as long as you avoid the dodgier venues, as I said before. 

    • March 30, 2016 6:01 PM BST
    • I have left that group for the monent - I will leave them arguing over a non issue. I am In Swindon Wilts.

    • March 30, 2016 5:36 PM BST
    • How exactly would your group define TG friendly? If they will only go somewhere that has a sign on the door saying "TG friendly" then they will never go out, apart from perhaps The Village in Manchester or similar where one assumes staff are used to our sort of people.

      I've found ALL establishments who are taking my money to be TG friendly, and anyway it's basically against the law now to not be so.

      I think you should stick to your guns, as long as everyone behaves themselves appropriately to that establishment then you should go where you like. I don't feel any more welcome in a gay bar or trans club than I do in a Michelin star restaurant.

      You're not in North Carolina are you?!

      No, I'm guessing UK, can I ask whereabouts?

    • I recently joined a local TG society and due to a resignation of a former member - I was appointed as events organiser. We were discussing various Pride events and they seemed no problem But then we started talking about a meal (should have been held nearer Christmas but postponed) and several members then started asking about whether certain estblishments were TG friendly or not. Now that is something I have never bothered about. If I am hungry I go into pubs, cafes, chipshops or restaurants and just order what I want. Sometimes I am with friends other times I am on my own. I think nothing of it. If I want to buy clothes - I go in and buy them - again sometimes on my own or sometimes with other ladies. My money is the same as anyone elses and to be honest everywhere is glad of the custom. If I had bad treatment from the establishment staff or other customers - I would do something about it (probably get what ever I wanted on the house). I even offered to meet those that were bothered about somewhere not being 'TG friendly' at their car or from the station and escort them in. But they said that would intimidate them even more. There was a copuple opf other clashes of personality as well and I left them to sort it out themselves.

      Now what do others think - should we set up these barriers? Should we have the right to just go whereever we want to - I do and have had no problems at all - in fact it is usually the opposite. I get on the train - people speak to me - they don't shun me. For the first time in my life I can walk into a certain poub in Londoidn and all the staff not only welcome me they know me by name. I go shopping with other girls - doing what they have been used to all thier life and the assistants treat me the same as them. They encourage me to try things on and some even ask to see me in them.

    • I must say that in the very early days I used a home made method constructed out of a pair of tights but very quickly found that it was not necessary. From then I just wore regular knickers as they did the job just as well, especially if I bought a pair one size smaller. 

      And when 'it's' gone, you won't have to worry about it any more.  

    • October 14, 2015 4:35 PM BST
    • I have never found the need to do so... I am not trying to deceive anyone... yes I still have one... but why suffer all that discomfort... I will breathe a sigh of relief when it is removed... but for the moment it lives in ordinary knickers

    • If you are pretty comfortable being out and about then the best way is to go and try them in the store, that way, you know they fit well before you buy them and end of having to return them. Online shoe shopping is always problematic, for all women. Besides, it isn't much fun either! 

      At least in store you have a wide range of styles available in one place and plenty of stores to choose from in pretty much any high street so you ought to be able to find someting you like. 

    • November 11, 2015 2:37 AM GMT
    • I shop en femme regularly. I prefer Shoe Show,or Encore. They always have lots of shoes and the store is roomy . Lots of places to sit and lots of mirrors.

    • October 16, 2015 10:29 PM BST
    • Because I wear size 13, I am limited in where I can shop. I went to Avenue and found that their shoes fit pretty well I was told that if you buy online at Payless and don't like them, you can return them to your local store.

    • October 16, 2015 7:32 PM BST
    • So I'm looking to increase my heel collection and I find that heels range so far in size, I can't really trust shopping online. Any trans friendly shoe ideas for stores in the states? I'm semi comfortable going out in public and doing my thing, but wasn't sure how other girls shoe shop.

    • I got my c cups at janet's closet in Wyandotte, mi. It's a great store for ts/TV shopping.

    • It's been my lucky day, sisters! I was out and about as my male self at the fall garage sales when I happened upon one where the lady of the house was selling her late mother's breast forms. A pair of Amoena C cup silicone forms. Only $10! I told the lady my "sister" had a double mastectomy, but couldn't afford forms, that's why I was interested in purchasing them. She was sympathetic as her mother had died from breast cancer. Money changed hands and I now have a pair of used, but serviceable, breast forms. Yay!

      (Yes, I felt guilty about this since a GG that had had a real double mastectomy and was poor could have used them, but I reminded myself there are no coincidences. I and those breast forms crossed paths for a reason.)

    • Before wearing… The products were packaged nicely.. The body stocking color is black which I like, It was inside out.. not sure why?.. I also recieved some white fishnet stockings and something that looked like pink socks.. these items were inside out as well.. i did not know what to do with the pink sock things since they had a loop on them ??? I have nothing to go with the white fishnet stockings so I did not use them.. The feature i liked most on the body stocking was the flower lace patterns..Features I think would be good is to have some with sleeves.. And also.. maybe a picture and better description of how to wear and what some products are..




      After wearing… I absolutley loved the feel of this product.. It fits me nicely and accents my shapes wonderfully.. I felt as though the material may be a little weak, but slide it on carefully and everything is great..I think a softer material should be used. I like it but feels a little ruff.. The only tips I have is that this Body stocking is fun and sexy, so you should enjoy..

    • September 4, 2015 4:37 PM BST
    • Sorry I find this thing absurd, from what I know, an expensive gimmic, designed to earn humungus amounts of cash by people who realy don't give a FK, like so many shops specialising in so called trans friendly services, overpriced sub standard merchandise that no real woman would wear.   I once saw an advert for 'manties' frilly pants for men, some which appeared to be charnos, highly inflated prices, when one could go on line and purchase the same female items from a reputable store for a fraction of the cost.

    • September 4, 2015 10:08 AM BST
    • Right, there is nothing physically stopping either of us wearing anything we want but there are plenty of intangibles blocking the way! And yes I often watch the girls at work quite envious of what they are wearing.

      I really like that idea, I have been lloking at makeupo for some time now and wondered about the mineral stuff like cover girl. I know there are TG friendly makeup stores around and a makeover would be the perfect solution to getting the right colors. I like the idea of a natural look and not somehting that takes me 2 hrs each day to put together.

      Well,best experiences are trying on lots of clothes ,conclusions only buy if it fits and you feel that extra lift, be it comfort, or just a shape boost type thing.if it feels awkward ,but looks good, don't buy.its got to look stunning to be worth the discomfort.Be practical and comfortable first.The clothes should channel your flow, not be hiding something.In the past I can identify that the clothes I used to choose where wrong , in this respect

      Hi Donna

      I hear you apout the choice of clothes. Some of mine were...shall we say less than tasteful in the early days, Make up was more in akin to being shot in the face with the Homer Simpson Make-up gun . I like the idea of trying on lots of clothes to ger correct fit and color. I have tried with one of the smaller department store chains to get a private session witha stylist but I can't even get them to respoind. I offered a minum spend to make it worth thier while, still no response.  I think I will find a couple of stores where I like their clothes and order various sizes so that I can get the right fit and return the rest.

      I think for me it would be having a secure place to store everything. I use my work bag at the moment. Fortunately, I don't have a lot of things to store. A good portion of my clothes are really my wife's old big girl clothes. She lost almost 150 pounds so she is in petit now. Her old size 18's seem to fit. So I can hide those in plain sight. I have some caftans and corsets that she would know weren't hers so those go in the bag along with any makeup. I keep my nail polish in the foldout drawer for the keyboard in my desk since it never gets used. 
      As far as buying, I work from home so I can easily intercept packages coming in. I usually buy from Amazon so that I don't have all these catalogs coming in. My wife and I had a talk a little about my issues during a long drive this weekend. She said, once again, that she will finish reading the journals. I did tell her that I found a counselor to help me. She was happy about that. So who knows, if I take things really slow, eventually I won't have to hide things away. She tells me she loves me and wants to help. Though, she has said she was going to finish reading the journals before. I don't see that happening as she was back to playing Yahtzee on her phone or investigating all things alpaca on the laptop. I will note that I did tell her before we got married twelve years ago that I almost became a woman. She has read one of the journals, so she knows the issues.

      I would love to be able to have catalogs sent to Emma. I did get one once. I don't know how they got the address. LOL. I have that stuck in that desk drawer. It came from Jessica London. Hmm.
      As far as fit goes, just make sure that wherever you buy has a liberal return policy. As many a cis has told me, it isn't like guy clothes where you know that the same size will get the same fit wherever you buy it. Some run large, some run small. You have to buy and try.  

      Hi Emma

      Thanhkyou for responding. I am lucky that my days of hiding are over and it eases my mind emensely. I understand your frustration at remaining in a limbo position where your partner knows but it really makes very little difference because she is not approving. Before really talking to my partner I made sure I understood exactly what it was I wanted to say to her, took my time and ensured she understood. I still had it wrong because I wasn't listening to her...I was hearing the words just not listening. The second time I spoke to her she told me she did not understand the depth of my7 deeling and how important it was to me.Once she underst6ood t5his her attitude changed and she has agreed to get counselling to help her though the issues this raises for her. 

       

      Living life in the closet is horrible, Living life in the closet when your significant other knows is even worse.

    • I am in what some would call a unique situation. All my clothes makeup, shoes etc were all tossed out by my partner. There is a story behind it but suffice to say the reason it was thrown out was as much my fault as my partners. So onwards and upwards, Now that my partner understands the depth of my feelings she is more than happy for me to replace everything. We are not wealthy people but I do have a reasonable amount owed to me which I should be receiving in the next week or two.So I need ot replace everything. I want quality well designed clothing,things I can mix and match, good evening Dress for going out, Makeup with the correct tones, shoes and accessories that I have never been able to get

       

      Over the years I havce made many attempts to buy clothes etc and have never really been able to get anything that fit properly. The clothes are out there but my terrible terrible guilt and shame caused me to not want to shop properly but as I descibe on my blog "commando shopping"

       

      What I would like to know if you could start your entire wardrobe up again from scratch what would you do differently? What would you buy and what wouldn't you buy? What are your must haves!

       

      One of mine is to ensure I get a good pair of comfortable shoes for around home...I love heels but its a pain if your are trying to do many many things.

    • May 17, 2015 10:24 AM BST
    • They can certainly help.

      But would suggest you get something decent as they can vary greatly in quality and how well they conform to your natural figure. I bought some with straight flat backs once and they were horribly hopeless.

    • May 17, 2015 3:33 AM BST
    • Very true LOL! I am going to get some breast forms I think.

    • May 16, 2015 10:46 AM BST
    • That's not uncommon.

      I have no hips whatsoever.

       

      Look at this way, you're probably the envy of every real girl who's trying to get rid of them! :)

    • May 16, 2015 3:55 AM BST
    • I wish I had more curves I am very thin. Just wish I had more in the hips and breast.

    • May 14, 2015 2:13 PM BST
    • Well take it slowly :)

      I'm down to a 28" (Fully closed). Started with 32" (which I couldn't shut so about 35") but its taken awhile. I could possibly get down to 26" but I have a feeling I won't get that far, too much strain on my hip bone to do that I think. At least if i wanted to go that ffar I'd need to order a proper custom made one I think.

    • May 14, 2015 12:36 PM BST
    • Actually turns out that what I have are corsets. My rib cage used to protrude outwards. It made me seem more barrel chested. I found that starting with the 18 and moving down to the 16, my ribs are more rounded in and appear to stay that way now. I will stay with the 16 a few more weeks and then maybe move one more size down. I think I would stop there.
