A common mistake some crossdressers and transgender women make is dressing too sexy. This often looks ridiculous – ESPECIALLY as you get older.
Does that mean you need to turn down your sex appeal after a certain age?
Instead, simply follow these 3 rules for dressing sexy at any age:
Rule #1: Show Some Skin (just not too much)
Short skirts and low cut tops are undeniably sexy, but you shouldn’t go too far with this. Here are a couple guidelines to keep in mind:
- Your skirt should be no shorter than fingertip length when you stand with your arms to your sides.
- Your top should show no more than 40% of your bust.
At the same time, you shouldn’t be TOO covered up since that just screams “old lady.” Show off your feminine assets, but do so in a tasteful and classy way.
Rule #2: Find the Right Proportions
Proportion refers to the way your clothes work together in length, width, size and volume.
- A short skirt paired with a short top tends to look slutty.
- A long skirt paired with a long top looks dowdy.
- A full skirt paired with a full top makes you look heavy.
- A tight skirt paired with a tight top can make you look like a sausage (unless you have a perfect body!).
You should never go too far in any one direction. That means if you wear something tight or skimpy, you should balance things out with the rest of your outfit.
- A short skirt should be paired with a more covered top.
- A skimpy top should be paired with a more covered bottom.
- A tight skirt should be paired with a fuller top.
- A tight top should be paired with a fuller skirt.
Rule #3: Wear Luxurious Fabrics
The final piece of the sexy puzzle is the fabrics you wear.
Think slutty and what comes to mind? A spandex skirt, barely there glittery top, and patent leather stripper boots, right?
Sexy, on the other hand, is associated with luxurious fabrics like silk, velvet, lace, and cashmere.
When shopping for clothes, look for fabrics that are rich and sensuous – rather than cheap and tacky.
Final Thoughts …
The bottom line is that you are NEVER too old to be your sexy femme self. Just be sure to keep it classy.

Thanks Lucille. I find with fashion a little common sense goes a long way. I have to admit that it takes me a long time in the morning to find the right outfit for the day. I guess it depends on how I feel. If I am having trouble deciding, I always rely on a dress. I feel so free when I’m wearing a summer dress.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart Lucille for all you have done for this girl.
I think of the glamorous look, rather than “sexy” (no, not that more recent thing, “glam”). A little more covered and a lot more classy.
I always check with my wife before going out dressed. On occasions she has sent me back to change, including changing my whole outfit. Sometimes it can be very daunting, changing from dressing as a man to dressing as a beautiful women.
I just love being as fem and girlie as I can possibly be…..frosty pink lipstick and cute lace pretty pink panties are a must…..taupe and leopard and anything very sheer is a plus if you want to ulta sexy and fem I think….kisses….sabrina

Any suggestions to minimize large shoulders ? I recently purchased Dress Tech Silicone hip pads, they are awesome, the are the best I’ve seen so far, the are long and wide, and are tapered, the fit under pantyhose, preferable Spanks. The look is perfect and natural looking, but ever with those I’m still not balanced with my upper body. I’m going to try and lose some more weight. I’m still a Plus size gal ! Thanks for all your tips and programs, they are really great.
