Fashion is for everybody, regardless of body size or shape. However, for plus size crossdressers and transgender women, finding the right styles can seem like a challenge.
The good news is that anybody can look sexy and stunning with the right clothing, accessories, and attitude!
In this blog post, I share 10 style tips for plus size crossdressers and transgender women. These tips will help you flatter your body and feminize your overall appearance. Let’s dive in!
1. Know Where to Shop
We all know how challenging it can be to find fashionable clothing, especially for plus size ladies.
Many online shops that cater to crossdressers and transgender women carry larger sizes. However, you don’t need to limit yourself there.
Whether your style is classic or trendy, there are so many stores that specialize in fashionable plus size clothing. Here are a few of my favorites:
- Lane Bryant – This is a great option for classic and versatile plus size fashion pieces.
- Torrid – If you are looking for something more youthful and trendy, Torrid carries the latest in plus size fashion.
- Shein Curve – Shein Curve is your one stop shop for trendy, inexpensive plus size styles.
2. Invest in Good Shapewear
This is perhaps the most important factor to consider for a feminine and fashionable appearance.
Undergarments are the base for any outfit, so ensure that your underwear and bras are the correct size. (See my post on How to Find Your MTF Bra Size to learn more.)
Your breast forms should be in proportion with your overall body size. Body shapers, like a shaping camisole or bodysuit, can smooth and contour your body for a slimmer look.
Finally, consider using hip and butt pads to balance the look of a larger midsection.
3. Avoid Baggy Clothes
Don’t try to hide your body under oversized clothes. This is not flattering and will only make you look bigger.
Instead, opt for well-fitting clothes that are neither too tight nor too large. This will make you look and feel your best.
4. Choose the Right Accessories
Never underestimate the importance of accessories. Whether it’s a necklace, handbag, or high heels, accessories can completely transform your outfit.
Most importantly, your accessories should be in balance with your body proportions. Avoid tiny, dainty jewelry since this can look out of place on a larger body.
Bold, chunky jewelry and larger handbags tend to flatter plus size body frames. In addition, consider wearing heels since they lengthen your appearance and make you appear slimmer.
5. Don’t Go Too Tight
Find the ideal balance between tight and fitted clothing! Nobody looks good in clothes that are too tight.
For plus size crossdressers and transgender women, tight clothing can reveal visible rolls that exaggerate your size.
If you want to wear tighter clothing, wear the appropriate body shapers to create a smooth silhouette.
6. Wear the Right Prints and Colors
Prints are a great way to make a fashion statement.
Classic patterns such as polka dots are always in style. However, you should avoid prints that are too big or too small because they will appear out of proportion with your body size.
Solid colors are always a safe bet. However, ignore the advice to only wear dark colors. Bright colors can make you look feminine and fabulous!
7. Choose the Right Neckline
Whether you are wearing a dress or a top, there are a few things you can do to enhance your bust and draw attention away from the belly.
Look for lower-cut necklines or v-necks to lengthen and slim your upper body. Avoid high necklines or boat neck tops as these tend to make the upper body look larger.
8. Wear a Jacket or Cardigan
Jackets and cardigans are a great option for plus size crossdressers and transgender women.
Structured jackets create can help create a flattering shape. Jackets and cardigans can also help camouflage a large belly.
More options to consider are:
- Tailored coats and blazers
- Open waistcoats or cardigans
- A duster coat with a knee-length hem
9. Show Off Your Legs
Most crossdressers and transgender women have gorgeous legs, even if they are carrying extra weight. So, use this to your advantage and flaunt your legs!
A short skirt or dress that highlights your legs will draw attention away from other areas, such as a full belly or larger upper body. You can further show off your legs in a pair of gorgeous heels.
10. Feel Confident
All bodies are beautiful and you deserve to look and feel your best as a woman – no matter your body size or shape.
So, feel confident and have fun expressing your feminine style!
Looking your best as a plus size crossdresser or transgender woman is easier than you might think. It all comes down to a few simple tweaks to your clothes, accessories, and attitude.
But the most important thing is to confidently express yourself as the fabulous female that you are!
