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.

I was pleased to see glowing comments on slips. I usually forget I have any until a time arrives when one would be right, and YES, then it is SO right! Feels lo-o-o-o-ovely, too. I am still using up my overstock of lower-quality pantyhose. It’s taking a while since I rarely wear them (casual girl here). There have been interesting meltdowns. Once, in Victoria, BC, I needed an emergency replacement. Went to the Hudson’s Bay store and had a great time at the dressing room area talking to all my brand-new sisters! Another time, I had an incipient run, and stopped at a salon and asked for a dab of clear nail polish. I don’t think anyone had ever asked for that, but they enjoyed the emergency repair. Sometimes if I have two identical damaged ones, I get clever, cut the bad leg off of each, then wear both. And of course, the slutty look with major runs is fashionable for some occasions. Fun with costumes!
Well I certainly love my lingerie, I love sexy matching bras and panties, corsets garter belts, nylons, and of course panty hose.
We have such wonderful choices
For all you ladies and men out there that enjoy wearing pantyhose or nylons Canada has a company called Sheertex( hello@Sheertex.com) that last forever. Expensive but good quality. Check it out.
I splurged and purchased a bunch of body-shaping lingerie by Rago. I had Rago shapewear before and knew how well it controlled and enhanced. Since I prefer more than 4 garters, I sewed in extra garter tabs in some of the new items.
I also purchased a high-end satin over-bust corset. It can be hidden or slightly exposed with low neckline tops. It’s wonderful.
I shopped and shopped for correct-fitting bras, since I have natural B-cup breasts. Since my band size is a higher number, the cups tend to be larger than needed. I finally found some bras with correctly-shaped bra cups. I had to pay a little more but to me it was worth it.
High Waist Rago Extra Firm Control Girdles. Corsets.
Silk pjs — cami and tap pants — are my weekend treat to myself but all my sleep tops and bottoms are girly. I have two very nice lacy kimonos that I love.
Hi I love lingerie in england I find panties labelled as high waist have more material and hold me better I enjoy having panties on underneath my combats which I get in army surplus especially if I get my size and they fit snug on my butt
As a huge fan of silk lingerie, my new favorite is this soft pink tap and cami set with matching short robe. Nothing else feels as feminine and luxurious as high quality pure silk. I hope I can post the designer name here without my post being deleted. This is the Sweet Indulgence camisole in Delicate, with matching Indulgence tap pant and wrap by Julianna Rae. This is my fourth tap and cami set from them. I wear tap pants and camisoles under my scrubs when I work at the hospital and it feels incredibly sexy to have that little secret!
