Tips on Sizing for Cross Dressers- Part II


Welcome back friends!


Shopping for ladies clothing can be very exhilarating but also very frustrating. We suggest starting off with clothing that is made to fit the male form particularly well. In Part I of sizing for cross dressers I discussed sizing for dresses, skirts, and breast forms.
Today I am going to give you a few tips on sizing for shoes, and hosiery. Shopping at a store like Glamour Boutique really makes dressing fun and exciting. Our shoe sizes go up to women's size 16 (17 in a select few) and we also have shoes that are made just for the male foot. This takes away the anxiety of not being able to find your size. Our corsets and dresses are also made to fit the male form, offering options for longer torsos and larger sizes.

TIPS ON SIZING FOR SHOES



Typically you want to go up 2 sizes in a closed toe shoe, flat or  boot. For example:
    Male Size 10 =  Women's Size 12




Five Inch Stiletto Sandal
If you are looking for an open toed shoe you can get away with only going up 1.5 sizes. So if you are a 10.5 you can choose a women's size 12. For example:
    Male Size 10.5 = Women's size 12
Our Mens Shoe Selection offers boots, heels, and flats as does the women's  shoes, only they are specially made for the male foot. They are wider, and larger than a women's shoe. If you are choosing  one of these you would go with your regular shoe size.

TIPS ON SIZING FOR HOSIERY


Wearing hosiery is a must to feel feminine and sexy. It offers the best of both worlds because you can wear it under your trousers or pair it with a corset, both allowing you to feel sensual and ladylike.

Sizing for hosiery is tricky because every manufacturer is different. So I am going to give you an idea of the sizing for 3 manufacturer's that we use that seem to be very popular.

I have linked the model number to our website so when you are shopping online you can come back to this sizing chart to find your correct size. This is a general chart to help you get an idea of what size you will be in the different types of hosiery.
