Did you know you only have 7 seconds to make a first impression?
After that, a person’s judgments have been made and are almost impossible to change.
So how can you be sure people see you as the fabulous female that you are?
I won’t lie… good looks help. But it’s often the little details that make or break a first impression.
Here are my top 5 ways to make a feminine first impression:
1. Know What You Want to Project
First, you have to know what you want to project:
- Is your goal to blend in as an everyday girl?
- Or do you want to stick out as a gender-bending fashion diva?
- Do you want to be recognized for your style and sophistication?
- Or do you simply want people to notice your great legs? 🙂
When you know what you want to project, you can then determine if your appearance and attitude get the message across.
2. Be Aware of Your Body Language
Body language is critical to first impressions. You never want to look nervous, ashamed, or on the opposite end of the spectrum, arrogant.
Your posture and body language should tell the world that you’re a classy, confident woman who deserves respect.
Here are 27 body language mistakes that can detract from a feminine first impression. Avoid them at all costs!
3. Wear The Right Color
Did you know that 50% of all non-verbal messages come from color? Amazing but true!
The color you wear has a strong subconscious impact on how people perceive you – especially when you present yourself as a woman.
Different colors have different meanings (more on that here), so consider what the colors that you wear communicate.
Even more importantly, you should wear colors that flatter you and make you feel great.
4. Check Your Grooming Habits
Studies show that physical attractiveness is mostly based on “self care” – that is, good grooming, neat hair, and nice clothes.
That’s great news because presentation is something you can control! After all, most of us weren’t born supermodels, but anyone can take the time to look the part.
Grooming can make or break a first impression, so be sure your standards are up to par. Here are 5 feminine grooming habits that should be part of your regular routine.
5. Make Eye Contact
Your eyes reveal more about you than you probably realize. Avoiding eye contact gives the impression that you have low self-esteem or have something to hide.
Confident eye contact puts people at ease and wins respect. That’s definitely a plus for a positive first impression.
So be bold, look people in the eye, and don’t forget to smile!
What kind of impression do YOU want to make?
There’s a lot to be said about this topic, but I’ve highlighted the most important areas you should consider.
Now I’d like to hear from you!

there is no “one” secret. It is a combination of self confidence, movement & a little makeup and experience.
You look so much like a GG that I know, it’s not funny.
I always thought she was absolutely beautiful. And so are you.

Lucille, you asked for suggestions for posts and I think I have one. Fall is here, the weather has definitely gotten colder and you certainly have to bundle up if you go out. Those gorgeous sundresses will have to go back into the closet for now (but hopefully that is all), and showing skin even for genetic girls would seem out of place. With that in mind, what are your top fall fashion tips? How can you put the darker, more dramatic brown, gray and red hues of autumn to good effect? It might be easy on a genetic woman but seem drab on a transgender.
Lucille, I like the suggestion of setting an intention especially–not necessarily how it relates to whether one wants to be a queen or girl next door, but how it might make a girl aware of a feeling or a physical feature that she might want to show off, so she can figure out how to express that desire/intention in the most subtle of ways. I think that is how you can get in touch with yourself and people will pick up on this confidence and treat you likewise. Am I right?
Hi there Lucille,
I love your site and you jave many insirations for me.
What I need is to know what supplements to take to enhance my breasts. I am 5’7″ 145 lbs. I have a slim and feminine curvy body, thin waist and nice hips and normal male enhanced breasts, but want more petrution and valumbsuous tits. I have been drinking soy and taking saw palmetto and manual massage. I need to be at least a 38D. I am a gay TV and have a few boyfriends who love my look and love lovemaking with me, but want me to have bigger tits.
What do you suggest.
Hi Michael/Michelle, are the soy and saw palmetto working? What dosages are you taking? I hope that Lucille updates her section on herbal treatments and that others contribute as well.
hi all, I have learned so much just reading,thank you.
thank you all, I am learning so much just by reading.
I am fortunate to have a very accepting wife. At times if I slipped up she has been my worst critic. I can honestly say that over the last few years the critism hardy ever occurs. It is my intention to pass as a everyday woman doing every day things. The one thing to do in making a good first impresson is be sure your beard shadow is not obvious. I am lucky in that I have solved that problem with electrology.
