Crossdressing / Transgender Tips: Top 10 Dos and Don'ts for Your MTF Transformation

Embracing your true feminine self goes way beyond just your hair, clothes, or makeup. If you’re a crossdresser or a transgender woman, you know there’s a lot to consider on this journey.

That’s why I’m here with some straightforward crossdressing / transgender tips for you!

In this blog post, I’m going to share 10 essential dos and don’ts to help make your male to female transformation or transition a little smoother. Let’s dive in!

1. DON’T Compare Yourself to Others

There’s no winning the comparison game. Comparing yourself to cisgender women or other trans women is a misery-inducing habit.

This isn’t a competition. Instead, focus on being the best version of YOU.

2. DO Find Female Role Models

While you shouldn’t compare yourself to other women, it IS a good idea to observe and learn from them.

When you see somebody who looks especially good, observe the details. How does she dress, speak, move, and behave? You don’t need to be a copycat, but incorporate some of these details into your own image.

3. DO Invest in Great Shaping Wear

The shape of your body broadcasts your gender, so one of the most important items to invest in is great shapewear. This is even more essential than spending money on expensive clothing!

Depending on your natural shape, you may want to invest in the following:

  • Breast forms in an ideal shape/size for your body
  • Waist cincher
  • Padded panties (with butt and hip padding)
  • Control top pantyhose

4. DON’T Forget Your Voice

There’s nothing quite as jarring as a beautifully made up woman with a voice that doesn’t match.

While it’s not essential to have the most perfectly pitched voice, putting some effort into a congruent voice will have a big impact on your image. I recommend EvaF online voice feminization training.

5. DO Dress Age Appropriately

Dressing appropriately for your age is a style must for every woman.

This is NOT to suggest that you have to look boring or frumpy above a certain age. You simply need to choose pieces that reflect the best version of you without looking too young or too old.

6. DON’T Overdo It

The biggest mistake you can make is overdoing it. This applies to all women!

Wearing too much makeup, dressing too sexily, and over-exaggerating your movements are all no-nos. These big mistakes attract the wrong kind of attention. Instead, think subtle and stylish.

7. DO Get a Second Opinion

It’s hard to see ourselves objectively. That’s why everybody needs a trusted friend for a second opinion. If you don’t have a girlfriend you trust nearby, find a forum or even post your images in the comments section here for an objective opinion on your image.

8. DO Seek Support

Whether you crossdress in private or live as a woman full time, you deserve to be supported. 

This could mean a lot of different things – from coming out to a partner, joining a support or peer group, finding a therapist, or just connecting with others online. Being supported makes the journey a lot less lonely – and way more fun!

9. DO Practice Your Moves

Your body language and movements communicate more about you than almost anything else. Pay attention to your movements by keeping them fluid and feminine. Check out these articles for more tips:
