The way you move is a huge part of your feminine image.
But what if you feel you feel a little lacking in the “grace” department?
The good news is that there are some simple techniques for feminizing your body movements.
In a previous article, I explained how to walk like a woman. Now let’s talk about how to make your gestures and overall deportment more graceful and feminine.
Here are my top 7 tips for feminizing your body movements:
1. Slow Down
It’s common to speed up your movements when you feel nervous or self-conscious. This can make you appear jerky and clumsy.
To look more poised, avoid rushed movements. Every move you make should be deliberate and precise. Take your time as you sit down, stand up, gesture, and reach for things.
2. Keep Your Knees Together And Your Elbows In
I know you’ve probably heard from Day 1, but it’s easy to let old habits slip in – especially if you spend most of your time in “guy mode.” That’s why it’s important to be conscious of keeping your knees together and your elbows in.
Why elbows in? Because it’s easy to be clumsy when your limbs are spread out all over the place. Keeping your elbows close to your body will instantly make your gestures more graceful.
3. Stretch Out
It’s impossible to move gracefully if you have a tense and tight body. That’s one reason why dancers spend so much time stretching.
You too should make stretching part of your normal routine – particularly before you present yourself as a woman. Here’s a 10 minute full-body stretching routine you can try:
4. Don’t Fidget
Fidgeting makes you look awkward and insecure, so avoid nervous movements like:
- Twirling your hair
- Biting your nails
- Shaking your leg
- Tapping your fingers
- Compulsively checking your phone
Instead, practice the art of graceful stillness! You will look confident and in control of yourself.
5. Study Graceful Women
There’s a lot to be learned from studying poised, elegant women. Pay attention to the way they move and carry themselves in public.
See the video below for a fabulous example of the ever-graceful Marilyn Monroe. Notice how elegantly she sits and stands, how deliberate her gestures are, and how she never fails to keep her knees together.
6. Take Dance Classes
If you’re really serious about becoming a graceful, elegant woman, then I highly recommend taking dance classes. The grace and coordination you’ll learn through dancing will carry over into your day-to-day life.
Any type of dance class is helpful, be it belly dance, salsa, or ballet. If you’re shy about showing up for instruction en femme, take salsa classes in “male mode.” You’ll still get some awesome hip movement training!
Finally, remember that being graceful takes practice. I recommend practicing your movements and gestures in front of a mirror. Or, better yet, record a video of yourself so you can evaluate your movements objectively.
Here are some specific movements to practice:
- Sitting down
- Standing up
- Gesturing as you speak
- Greeting other people with a hand shake or air kiss
- Table manners
- Getting into and out of a car
What do your movements say about you?
You might not be able to change your height or the overall shape of your body, but the good news is that you have control over your body movements.

I don’t have a comment but a question. I have a rare and painful disease that was affecting my left leg and now I have it in both legs. My legs were tied with my eyes as best feature, but now I’m bandaged up to my knees and just walking is getting more difficult. I’m still interested in Men and crossdressing but I’m not sure anymore! Should I give up my dream of being the gurl on my some guys arm?

Im 52 and seriously looking at coming out finally. I know im a femme just need to learn
I have never taken any dance lessons, Salsa is sexy, & ballroom dancing, would probably help to look graceful as well. I was watching the video of Marilyn Monroe & think I would be capable of doing those moves but I always remember that “practice does make perfect”.
This topic reminded me of my checklist of ways to be perfect. Any more these isolated days a trip grocery shopping is a big event So of course it needs some glamor. I park some distance from the store for exercise, and as I approach, I go over the checklist and make adjustments. It’s nice to feel things clicking into place. So by the time I reach the door, look out; I’m a force to reckon with! Enjoy, girls.
Thanks for follow up, Joan. Funny, directly after I commented I thought about the fact that …too many Women @ the mall anymore are NOT dressed up and R sloppy. At least here in Colorado. Holidays a bit better.
I watch closely the movements of the skin care and clothing associates and have developed a rapport with several ,receive many free samples as a result of high- end skin care and makeup. I now, thanks to your reply, the list attached on these blogs about movements abd how to walk in heels and refer to them when I am out walking in public, or at a club, having hair or skin care done, and certainly when interacting w/ other/another girl(s). Thank you and well wish you!
Walking long distances in high heels or boots w/ hihg heels is great practice for elegant movements.
I put on my 4 in. booties and a hat and shoulder bag w/ oversized sun glasses and walk through the mall ,one end to other, when I am there for an appt. or to purchase something. While there, I watch how the more well dressed/elegant Women shopping and the Women
working there and emulate their movements.
Right on, darlin’! Great way to perfect your moves. Especially the observing not only other women but “…more well dressed/elegant Women…”. I’m sure that heads turn as you pass. Being well dressed and nicely done up gives you a big advantage because, well, many mall mademoiselles are a bit too casual, even sloppy. Thank You for your reply.
