How to Walk Like a Woman

Your walk is a critical aspect of your feminine image. The two biggest mistakes I see crossdressers and transgender women make are:

  • Walking like men
  • Over-exaggerating their movements

In this article, I’m going to reveal how to achieve a natural, feminine walk. But first, let’s look at the 3 biggest differences between male and female walks:

  1. Men tend to walk with a “shoulder swagger”, while women sway their hips when they walk.
  2. Men have sharper movements, while women usually have more fluid movements.
  3. Men walk with longer strides than women do.

Here are my top 3 tips for walking like a woman:

1. Do the Hip Matrix

Most advice for TG women focuses on the mechanics of how to walk like a woman. But this advice ignores the fact that males carry more tension in their bodies and therefore have stiffer movements.

Until you learn how to “loosen up”, your feminine walk will always look stiff and unnatural.

My friend Rob Brinded is a movement specialist and one of the foremost experts in male/female movement reprogramming. His “Matrix” exercises are designed to release tension and free up your body movements so you can walk like a woman.

Check out his “Hip Matrix” video below and then try it for yourself. If you do a test walk before and after the Hip Matrix, I promise you’ll be amazed by the difference! (You can learn more about Rob’s approach to feminine movement in my Stepping Out Secrets program.)

2. Wear high heels

Women have a lower center of gravity than men due to their larger hips. This creates that sexy hip sway that’s characteristic of a feminine walk.

Forcing your hips to sway usually looks unnatural. Instead, practice walking in high heels. High heels change your center of gravity and exaggerate the forward curve of your spine. This helps release the hips, which naturally feminizes your movements.

You can enhance this effect by keeping your shoulders still when you walk. This forces you to use your hips for balance.

Once you’ve mastered hip walking in heels, you can practice the same movements in flat shoes. (Though why anybody would want to wear flats instead of heels is beyond me!)

3. Shorten your stride

Shortening your stride is another easy and effective way to feminize your walk.

The average woman’s step length (the distance from the toe of one foot to the toe of the opposite foot) is 26”. So if you want to be scientific about it, get out a ruler and measure your steps! Keep in mind that the higher your heels are, the shorter your steps should be.

There are other subtle elements that define a feminine walk, but these tips are a great place to start. Give them a try and let me know what you think! I’d also love to hear about any other movement tips or techniques you’ve found helpful.

As always, thank you for reading and participating!
