Top 10 MTF Essentials For The Summer (Trans / Crossdressing Tips)

Summer is the perfect time to embrace your feminine side. But let’s be honest, hot weather definitely has its challenges.

First, it’s hard to look your best if you’re sweating off all of your makeup. Plus, it’s just too darn hot for shapewear, hosiery, and other accessories that help create your ideal feminine image.

The good news is that with a few simple adjustments, you can look flawlessly feminine all summer long. 

Check out these 10 must-have MTF essentials for the summer. Whether you’re a crossdresser or a transgender woman, these tips will help you look and feel fabulous during the sunny season.

1. Sweat-Proof Primer

The best tip for summer makeup is to keep it light and minimal. Another helpful tip is to use a primer to control shine and make your makeup last longer. 

Here are 4 makeup primers worth trying:

2. Foam Breast Forms

If you wear breast forms, then you know there’s nothing worse than how hot and sweaty they can make you feel in the summertime. 

Instead of your usual silicone breast forms, opt for foam breast forms for a lighter and cooler feel.

3. Summer Fragrance

Escada Perfume

Fragrances can change on your body as the temperature rises, causing heavy and musky scents to become overpowering in the summertime. 

Consider switching to a lighter, fresher scent for the summer.

4. Blotting Papers

Nyx Blotting Paper

Blotting papers are a girl’s best friend in warm weather. Use them to absorb excess oil from your face instead of adding powder, which can lead to a cakey look.

I recommend NYX Cosmetics Blotting Paper (at less than $7 a pop!).

5. Cotton Underwear

Natural fabrics that breathe are the key to staying sweat and odor free. This applies to everything you wear, including your undies. 

Make sure you have a collection of cute cotton panties for the summer. A cotton bra can also be a lifesaver.

6. SPF Moisturizer

Olay SPF Moisturizer

The truth is, you should be using sunblock on your face all year long to protect you from wrinkles and premature aging. But it’s especially critical during the summer months. 

Olay Complete All Day Moisturizer is a great all-in-one moisturizer with SPF 15 coverage.

7. Flattering Sunglasses


Sunglasses are a summertime essential. The trick is to choose frames that flatter your face for the most feminine look. 

Here are some tips to downplay square, strong, or masculine facial features:

  • Look for sunglasses with a rounded shape to soften your features.
  • The larger your face, the larger the frames should be.
  • Choose frames that extend past the widest part of your face.
  • Avoid anything with a square shape, which draws unwanted attention to the angles of your face.

8. Anti-Frizz Spray

Dealing with frizzy hair during summer can be a real hassle, whether it’s your natural hair or a wig.

To control frizz and maintain shine, use a smoothing spray such as Moroccanoil Frizz Control for natural hair or HD Smooth Detangler by Jon Renau for synthetic hair.

9. Exfoliating Body Scrub

Summer means showing more skin, but that also means more shaving. Unfortunately, shaving, sweat, and heat can lead to ingrown hairs and breakouts.

Try using an exfoliating body wash a few times a week to keep your skin smooth and free from irritation. One great option is the TREE HUT Shea Sugar Scrub.

10. Maxi Dress

When it comes to dressing for summer, the #1 rule is to go for loose and cool outfits instead of tight and hot ones. It’s all about comfort and letting your skin breathe.

A must-have for every girl during summer is a maxi dress. Choose a style that skims your body to smooth over figure flaws and create a feminine-looking body shape.
