There’s nothing like treating your female self to a new piece of lingerie.
While everybody loves a bargain, some things are worth spending a bit more on. Quality items tend to fit better, last longer, and make you look amazing. Who doesn’t want that from their lingerie?
That’s why in this post, I share 5 transgender / crossdressing lingerie items worth the splurge. Read on to learn more!
1. High Quality Pantyhose
Is there a difference between drugstore pantyhose and higher end department store brands like Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, and Wolford?
Quality hosiery looks and feels more luxurious – and most importantly, it lasts longer. Unlike cheap pantyhose that runs within a day, quality hosiery should last you for many wearings.
2. Perfectly-Fitted Hip And Butt Pads
Nothing says “woman” like a shapely lower body. Unfortunately, most padded panties out there don’t suit crossdressers and transgender women. They look unnatural with pads that are the wrong size or shape.
Instead, consider investing in a high quality hip & butt enhancer from a vendor like Classic Curves. While these garments run $185+, they are custom made to your body and will last for years. Best of all, they provide curves in all the right places.
3. Silk Pajamas
There’s nothing like the feel of real silk. I believe every girl (including you!) should have genuine silk pajamas in her collection.
Whether it’s a slinky nightgown or a classic pajama pant set, slip on one of these babies and feel the cares of the day melt away.
4. Pocket Bra
If you wear breast forms, it’s worth investing in a pocket bra built to hold your breast forms. A pocket bra will keep the forms secure and properly positioned.
I particularly like the TRANSFORM See-Thru Bra. At $35, it may cost a bit more than bargain bras, but it’s well worth it.
5. A Luxurious Robe
A silk or satin robe is a classic boudoir piece that will make you feel ultra feminine.
While you don’t have to break the bank, it’s worth treating yourself to the best you can afford. Your robe should last for years, so look for a high quality piece with luxurious fabric and trimmings.

Love Wolford pantyhose, Yandy bras & garter belts. LuxeMyBody pantyhose in a couple of months when they are out.
For those with their own breasts I’m guessing finding stuff of higher band size but smaller cup size is a problem. I’ve had joy with a small US company cutely named Itty Bitty Bra. Also Uniqlo makes a bamboo fiber bra top (which I’ve seen people wearing on its own) in their “Airism” range – crazily the XL fits me really well notwithstanding my small cup.
I’m a 90A German size (think that’s about 40A US) and not many people make my band size in A cup. I’m lucky to have a cis friend who is almost exactly my height and has almost the same body shape. She’s really fun to go shopping with.

Both the above were also helpful in bringing a pretty roundness to me in my first six months of HRT. I have been very “triangular” and am just beginning to fill out with a roundness that I really love.

A satin sleep shirt provides the luxurious girly gurl state of mind,so feminine.Also a corset/waist chincher for that sexy hourglass figure we strive for……..Stay beautiful
Once again I totally agree. My 3 favorites are:
1. Good quality hosiery. I prefer sheer European stockings over pantyhose.
2. A nice pocket bra with breast forms is a great confidence building and provides a worry appearance with everything staying in place.
3. Last but not least is a hip and butt enhancer. I am naturally lacking of curves in that area and the enhancer has been wonderful. I recommend one with silicon pads vs. form. It cost more, but the look is worth it.

I love Gio Brand Hosiery. I am wearing a Denier 15 sheer Reinforced heel and toe, size tall, color Spice. Very classic quality hosiery. (garter belt not included)
Buy a pair and have fun!
I personally don’t wear anything to bed….I think I am curvy enough without the extra padding, and don’t need a pocket bra. When my breast are a 38 B-36 C…and if I wore pj’s they would be cotton, or satin….but have none…..and no robe. If I wear anything to bed usually light shorts, yoga pants with a tank top.
You are right on about the pantyhose. I love them and I have experimented with many different kinds. When I first started trying to find my bra size the cheap ones were alright. Now I am leaning towards more expensive and well built bras. I sure enjoy the information and help here.
Awesome tips.Sexy high quality is a must for these lingerie items.The feeling of the fabric against the skin is so rewarding.Hose, besides the great feelings for sure so that it endures longer.
Looking for virtually indestructible pantyhose? Check out Sheertex. Their a Canadian company. They invented these pantyhose and make them here in Canada. Not cheap, but great quality! Check them out!
I couldn’t agree more, Lucille.
I have all you recommended and use them all.
My butt is a very feminine shape to start with, but I love my Secrets in Lace booty pads, especially in a fitted dress or skirt.
I have several makes of pocket and non pocket bras in all colors. A robe is a must…found mine At Goodwill; always check there for all needs.
I only wear 100% nylon stockings, from Secrets in Lace, Richmond,VA.
GOOD LIST to go buy,and makes one feel that special something!!
