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.

Since I was blessed with natural breast growth I like to show cleavage, plus I’m just a tee shirt and blue jeans kind of girl. Hope my dress is appropriate for a 47 year old. My boyfriend says i look good so I guess it’s all that matters right?

Well I cant say I dress sexy but I can say well dressed.
I have been watching you for several years now , and saw you grow up so nice . I think you will be a rose some day , but I also think you could use a bit of fashion help ! you have such a fine charm and I believe that it shows through . there are so many styles out there that would fit you quite well please put away the little girl and break out the silk and lace . with your looks you could go full vogue and knock them dead . I mean no disrespect or harm . I just find you exciting and worthy of the finer looks of a runway winner model .modify the make up and go vogue , you deserve it all and could bring it off !
Well dressed is more important in my opinion. It will catch the eye of who u want a lot quicker.chao, rox.
Here are some other pics of my first corset.
Well I do have 3 different styles of corsets. My second corset is a purple brocade long line waist training corset with garter tabs for wearing under clothing, I just have to get the removable garters for it. My first corset is a brown brocade corset belt also with garter tabs worn over clothing, I hade gotten for my first steampunk outfit, witch I need to get removable garters to use for both corsets. My third corset is another brown under bust corset that has straps and covers the back, I got to help with posture and for my second steampunk outfit.
This is the pic I meant to post.
Also. Corsets add to the sexy look at any age. Worn under a dress or skirt over stockings and garter belt. It can take 3inches off a waist, or less, give curves to body, and be tantalizing later on.Fredericks of holiwood for quality, color, style. Roxanne.
Yeah, I would be staring too! I’ve had moments like that…No Problem!
Enjoy the view!
A glimpse of stockings was thought to be shocking, but heaven knows, ” Anything Goes “…
I have some tops that you can see my nipples, is that acceptable.
Not my sexiest look but when out to dinner my partner took a photo of me sitting down ,when we saw it afterwards and zoomed in i didnt notice i was showing a bit more than normal and realised why the guy opposite kept staring lol still hope it made his day
How’s this for a 65 year old, yikes huh!?!?Fine for home fun, but I don’t think for going out in!?!?
Thank You Lucille!
