There is a new page added to the Micki Finn website that should be of interest to crossdressers just venturing out or thinking about it. I could not remember any of the website pages that I have visited over the years that addressed the crossdresser with absolutely no experience in dressing up.

Remembering all of the trial and error mistakes I personally made over the years trying to figure it all out and the huge cost of those experiments not to mention the disappointment with the outcome.  The wigs that made me look like I had a poodle on my head in one case and a vampire in the next.  The dress that made me look like a parade float. I thought it would be a great help for beginners to avoid all of the fun and fast track their way to being beautiful.

CROSSSDRESSING 101 is aimed at the beginner but should be informative for everyone and possibly it be helpful t the old pro’s also.

I hope you enjoy it and let me know if I missed something.

Creating feminine curves is easy now days because there are many products out there to choose from and of course I have a favorite.


I use gel pads by Classic Curves International made by my old friend Espy Lopez. The gel pads are heavier than the foam pads but are far better and more realistic. They are very durable and I have had mine of 15 years. dscf00021-1024x768


People make the mistake of lifting them up and then thinking they are heavy and will slide down forcing you to pull them up all night. I can tell you that I have never had one issue with them moving at all wearing them day and night.

I wear either Spanx or some other shaper and sometimes panty hose and insert the pads inside positioning them where I want them. Then I wear a an all in one shaping slip from Magisculpt that has the bra built in.magisculpt-shaper


I crisscross the straps so that they don’t slide down all night and then turn the garment inside out before putting it on. Wearing the pads in my pantyhose I hold the slip upside down and inside out with the bra in front just above my toes. Holding on to the hem I step in and pull it up my  legs to about mid thigh. I then pull the bra portion over the hem making the garment right side in using the bra straps to pull it all the way up sliding my arms through them like the picture above. The shaping slip maintains constant horizontal pressure on the pads keeping them exactly where you put them. I am not even aware I have them on.

Because the  slip extends down your leg to upper thigh and the material is rigid enough that it eliminates your boy bulge up front.

When I wear pants I just roll up the slip enough to get them on and work the boy bulge problem another way in necessary.

Gel pads are more expensive at about $300.00 a set but if I divide that by 15 years the cost me $20.00 per year.

Check them out I think you will like Espy’s Classic Curves Gel Pads.

For my breasts I use the tear drop breast form from Supergel Products which are made from a similar gel material to the hip pads. The are very reasonably priced around $100.oo per pair because you are buying from the manufacturer.
