A Closet for Cross Dresser’s – A Beginner's Guide

Being a beginner cross dresser can be a bit intimidating and scary at first. How are you supposed to search for breast forms, wigs, and corsets when you have no idea what you are doing? That’s where I come in. Our experts here at are here to take the fear out of the transformation process. The goal is to make this a fun, liberating transition for you.
First, decide what type of woman you aspire to be. Actually picture what she would look like visually.

Maybe you are going for a classy, sophisticated look. Perhaps you want to show your wild side through a tight leather skirt, lace pantyhose, and a hot red wig.

The choice is YOURS.

No matter what your end result looks like, there are some basic items you need to add to your closet.

Waist Cinching Corset

If you have never tried one before, you are going to be pleasantly surprised when you do. Whether you want to try waist training or just wear one when you go out to create more of an hourglass system and the illusion of feminine hips this is a must have item. As soon as you put one of these on you will instantly see a change in your overall shape. It’s seriously like magic.
Yes, I really used a picture from 1950. Not only can you see how it has cinched her waist in but you now also have proof that corsets have been around for a long time!! Although this picture is from the 50’s, corsets have been used by men and women since the 16th century. Lucky for us, they are a bit more attractive now, with many different colors and styles to choose from.

Wigs- Yes, plural. Who say's you can only have 1 hair style?  

Now we go back to how you picture yourself in the end. Do you want to be a blonde, brunette, redhead, or maybe go with bright pink hair? Once you have that down, you need to choose your style. Certain wigs look better on certain face shapes. It may take a while to find that perfect wig for you. If you don’t want to go through the trial and error approach then call us to schedule a private appointment in our showroom where you can try on our selection of wigs.

Breast Forms- Big, Bigger, or the Biggest?

Soo many types of boobs, how do you choose?? First, have in mind what size cup you want: B small, C medium. D large or DD very large. Size of cup and shape of the forms will determine if you want a conservative, realistic look or a fun busty look? For a busty look try the Affordable Teardrop’s with their high profile. Want a more natural look? Take a look at the Perfectly Perky Ovals.
If you are looking to go big (I mean REALLY big) then here are some great options for you- very large breast forms
If you really have no clue what look you want, then again feel free to call our FREE phone advice line on 1 888 721 8688 or book an appointment to be fitted in our New Jersey location showroom. Our experts will be more than happy to help you.


Make-up for a Make-over

Make-up is a beautiful thing

Having said that, it definitely takes practice but is so worth the outcome you get. If you have already taken a venture at this then you know what I am talking about.

A very important part of your make-over is contouring. Check out our Contouring 101 article for tips. If you have no make-up at all I would suggest starting with foundation, beard cover, and a make-up kit to experiment with colors, and shades.  

Don’t start putting on your make-up if you have no end result in mind. Make sure you find a picture of someone’s make-up you really admire and try to mimic what they did. If you just blindly start applying different colors it may come off as too strong.

Choose a feature to accentuate. Go simple with all other features. So, if you really want bold lips then go more natural with your eyes. If you want your eyes to pop then keep your lips simple.

To achieve bold lips, first line them with a lip liner similar to the color of the lipstick or lip gloss you chose- sometimes applying a little foundation first will help to make your lipstick last longer and allows the color to really pop. Then fill them in with your lipstick. Smack your lips together lightly, and blot with a tissue to avoid lipstick on your teeth.

If you want bold eyes, try a SmokeyEye look.
When you are feeling confident, and are ready to step it up and head out into the world, try adding some accessories.
