When presenting yourself as a woman, every detail matters – from your hair to your makeup to your clothes. However, one area that is often overlooked is your feet.
No matter the size, shape or condition of your feet, it’s totally possible to achieve attractive, feminine feet with a little care and attention.
After all, there’s something so alluring about showing off sexy feet in a pair of strappy sandals or stilettos!
In this blog post (written specifically for trans women and crossdressers), I share 6 tips on how to get the feminine feet you desire. Read on to learn more!
1. Indulge in a Professional Pedicure
While you can give yourself a DIY pedicure, I recommend going to a salon for a professional treatment.
Aside from the pampering experience, it’s much easier to maintain pretty feet at home after you’ve let a pro remove your calluses, trim your cuticles, and reshape your nails.
Many men get pedicures with clear nail polish, so don’t feel shy about going to the salon in male mode. (Though of course, it’s much more fun en femme!)
2. Banish Foot Odors
It’s hard to feel sexy and sensuous if you have stinky feet. The main cause of foot odor is sweat, so here are a few tips for controlling sweaty, smelly feet:
- Try applying antiperspirant to the soles of your feet.
- Take your shoes off when you’re at home to let your feet breathe.
- Wear cotton socks instead of polyester or nylon socks.
- Put baking powder in your shoes. Sodium bicarbonate helps control the bacteria that causes foot odor.
3. Remove Excess Hair
I’m always surprised how many people (including cisgender women) neglect to remove the hair from their toes. Who needs that distraction?
When you shave your legs, don’t forget to include your feet – and the tops of your feet too if you have hair there.
4. Get Rid of Calluses
Sexy feet are soft and touchable, so exfoliation is a must. Fortunately, there are some great tools that make the job of removing calluses much easier. I love the Amope Pedi Perfect Electronic Foot File.
5. Do a Foot Soak
Soaking your feet is a great way to get that spa experience at home – plus it leaves your feet clean and soft.
Simply fill a basin with warm (not too hot) water and soak your feet for 10 minutes. To make the soak more effective and enjoyable, add some Epsom salt or scented bath salts.
6. Use a Rich Foot Cream
Feet take a lot of abuse during the day, so it’s important to care for them by applying moisturizer regularly. Feet require heavy duty moisture, look for a cream specifically designed for the feet.
Some recommendations include:

Always take off your socks when you remove your shoes and put them in the clothes hamper. If you don’t, the sweat from your feet stays in the socks and grows bacteria which will create odor.
Great tip, thanks!
Hi Lucille, I had my first Pedicure last month and I loved it. I have had acrilic nails for some time now. I have been on hormones for 10 years, had an Orchi, breast implants etc. I have never regretted it!
I love the way my toenails look when polished, and it just does not feel right when they are not. No matter what I am wearing, I know a piece of my feminine side is with me.
I just love red polish on my toes
Your suggestions about our toes reminds all of us of our continuing and increasing femininity. . . I have been to salons for pedicures for years now and love to have my toes painted all the time. . . I have difficulty waiting for my next pedicure to change the color of polish and I end up painting them my selves often. . . Thanks for all your help. . .

Me too, girlfriend! LOVE my mani-pedis!!
I enjoyed your article about having pretty feet and how to take care of them. I never thought of using baking soda in the shoes. I always thought foot powder would work.
I was nervous the first time I went to get my pedicure. But since then I go every three months. Next week I’m getting my feet detox treatment followed by a full massage. I love it.
Hi been doing my own toes since about twelve, one of the first things that made me feel femme. nothing like polishing your own toes…Lisa
