Are you ready to reveal your most fabulous feminine self?
If so, the right tools are a must! Some of these items are obvious, but others are essentials you might not have thought of.
Keep reading to discover 10 must-have items for your male to female transformation:
1. Breast Forms
Breasts are arguably the most feminine part of a woman’s body. Unless you’re blessed with your own curves, breast forms are essential. (Of course, you’ll also need a cute bra to put them in!)
2. Color Corrector
A visible beard shadow can be a big challenge to putting your best face forward.
While you might be tempted to cover imperfections with heavy concealer, it never looks natural.
Instead, invest in a pink or red color corrector to first neutralize the tone of your beard shadow. This allows you to use less makeup and gives you a more natural and feminine look.
(Note: Check out The Makeup Magic Program to learn pro techniques for concealing a beard shadow, feminizing your face with makeup, and much more.)
3. Panty Girdle
A panty girdle is a great multi-purpose garments that trims your waist, flattens your belly, and smoothes your overall shape.
Panty girdles come in brief and long leg styles:
- Choose the brief style to wear under short skirts.
- Opt for the long leg style to wear under pants and longer skirts.
The right perfume can make you feel irresistibly feminine!
The secret is to choose a fragrance that matches the qualities you want to express:
- Go for floral scents if you want to express your romantic side.
- Choose oriental or woody scents if you want to bring out your inner seductress.
5. Black Pantyhose Or Tights
Bare legs might be trendy now, but in cooler months, nothing beats the polished look of hosiery. Classic black pantyhose or tights are a style essential.
If you’re going to wear pantyhose, be sure to choose the sheerest hose possible and only wear jet black pantyhose. (Avoid grey-black and brown-black tones.) Or wear opaque tights for a more casual and youthful look.
Studies show that a woman’s lips are considered the most attractive part of her body – especially when she is wearing lipstick. Lipstick is a must-have item that will instantly make you look more feminine and attractive.
7. Classic Pumps
Shoes say more about you than any other accessory. You can’t go wrong with a pair of classic black pumps. They’re sexy, feminine, and work well with many types of clothes.
Think you are too tall for heels? Even a 1″ kitten heel has impact, so there’s a pump out there for everybody.
Due to higher testosterone levels, males generally have rougher skin than women do. Get a facial moisturizer and use it daily, (whether you are en femme or not).
Moisturizer makes your skin look smoother and helps your makeup go on better and last longer.
9. Little Black Dress
The little black dress is a wardrobe staple every crossdresser and transgender woman should own. A simple black dress in a flattering length can go from day to night and will never go out of style.
Finally, the most important thing you can possess is a great attitude!
People treat you the way you expect to be treated – so be as femme and fabulous as you want to be. You deserve it, girlfriend!

I’m older, retired, and been on HRT for several years. My doctors, massage spa, and a few others know about me. Most of family and friends do not. However, I am a woman 24/7. I choose clothes that are like mens clothes to wear around family and this Baptist Bible Thumping town. I have long hair that I keep permed. I carry a purse but around here turn the back out and it can pass as a man bag. In the style of dress I do, people who know me see me as a man, people who don’t know me see and treat me as a woman. People who know me don’t seem to see the zippers and buttons are on the wrong side. If you blend in, people just don’t notice that much. On HRT, my body hair disappeared and my beard is so light in color I can shave and don’t need a consealer. When we travel, I dress more feminine and use more jewery and some lipstick. No way can I go into a men’s room among strangers without causing a stir. My wife and I just go as two girlfriends. It was hard when I finally admitted to my self I was a TS. It was harder telling my wife. But we worked through it. On Saturday is our 50th Anniversary. We now shop together as she appreciates my taste in clothing. Since I admitted all this to my wife and doctors and got put on HRT, I had to be taken off all blood pressure meds. The stress was that great before to cause the BP problems. I was born in a different time and place so there are some who are so homophobic I can’t come out to without causing major problems in the family. This way I can be happy and they are happy. When I came out to the doc and said I had lived my life for others all these years and wanted to live the final years for me. He was great and helped me go on HRT.
I have been crossdressing for only about 8 months and am 69 years of age. I do not go out but thoroughly enjoy dressing in private at home. I have just about all of your top ten items except the make up. I only use lipstick and day and night moisturisers. I am just starting your flat2femme program. I am not aiming very high but would love to have sufficient breasts to just notice under a shirt when I go out.
I would suggest a classic shoulder purse. I have been using a Coach bag since about 1970. It has held up well, and is always in style, except for dressy occasions.
I don’t wear ballet flats; they don’t hold up well walking on concrete sidewalks. But I have a pair of black Mary Jane flats by Tic Tac Toe that I often wear. They are both durable and comfortable; and there’s an added plus in that the soles are waterproof, so I only get wet feet if I step in a puddle.
I too have a fairly comprehensive girly collection that I love to wear
as often as possible.
At the moment I’m trying very hard to grow breasts by following
your course, this is a slow process but things are developing.
Breast forms may be acceptable but I prefer to have real boobs
if possible. Look forward to your next tutorial. Lots of love.
I like this list but i agree with a few of the other ladies the pumps are a bit much I am 6ft tall and I wear flats i hate all the attention and it is what you get when your tall then add heel.
Little question: is there a good place i can go to figure out how to do makeup so I don’t look like a clown. It has got to be my only part I have not had sucess at in tring to become women in apperance. I just look like a man drssing in womens cloth. please help me with this one.
Here I am again. I don’t know why I neglected to mention it before, but the best cosmetic item you can use is a smile. Look around and you will see that it is one of the things that really separates the girls from the boys!
Believe it or not, most salons, and cosmetics departments in major department stores, will be happy to see you come in and ask for makeup help. Of course, they have products and services to sell, so to make them happy you might part with some dollars, and they will try to make you happy, especially if you return occasionally. You might also find a crossdresser support service in your area. They are here and there, and one of their specialties is makeup assistance. Best of luck.
Hi Kelly, I have the same concerns you have. I am also 6ft tall and worry about my height. I just recently worked up the nerve to go out in public (thanks to a very supportive wife). I wear flats, dress nice but not over the top. I try to blend in and not draw attention to myself. I also don’t go overboard with my makeup. The eyes I think are most important. I use a good amount of eye liner to bring out my eyes but use earth tone color eye shadow instead of blue or something. I also prefer pink lipstick vs. something really bold. Only once did I use a dark red in public and that was on New Year’s Eve so I got all dressed up for that.
Going outdoors en femme is scary but it’s liberating! I don’t feel I do my makeup well but it’s good enough. People have looked at me directly up close and just glanced away apparently without thinking twice. Having a supportive partner with you really helps and I am so grateful to have one! With a little practice your makeup will look great and you’ll be walking by people with confidence! Look for “how to” videos on youtube or sites like Covergirl, etc.
Good Luck Kelly! I wish you the best!
I have my breasts, bras, panties, some panyhose (not black, though). I am a Tgirl and have been going out en femme for about 4 years, but need to lose some weight.
