CROSSDRESSING 101 FOR THE BEGINNER

Crossdressing 101 is a new page on the Micki Finn website that should be of interest to new crossdressers. T Girls just venturing out or thinking about it will find it helpful. I could not remember any website pages over the years that addressed the beginning crossdresser.  Wannabe crossdressers with  absolutely no experience in dressing up not knowing where or how to start.

Remembering all of the trial and error mistakes I personally made  trying to figure it all out. The huge cost of those experiments along with the disappointment with the bad 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.

WHY

Why is something that I am trying to explain in the Crossdressing 101 page. Thy why is more important than the how because properly applying the wrong foundation the correct way will produce bad results. Even if you followed the instructions perfectly you were doomed from the start. This is especially true with eye shadow where women and crossdressers put on a shade they see on someone else. The why in eyeshadow is to make your eyes more attractive sometimes dramatic. It should compliment your hair and skin tone. Blonde hair with blue eyes looks best with brown shades or shadow which highlight the eye color. Blue eyeshadow looks terrible on blondes or pretty much anybody. People see the blue eyelid and lose the eye all together. Jaclyn Hill is my favorite source when it comes to eye makeup.

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.

LADYLIKE FEMININE CURVES

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

The Pads

I use gel pads by Classic Curves International made by my old friend Espy Lopez. 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. They think you will need 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.

Holding them in

Wearing either Spanx or some other shaper and sometimes panty hose over my pads works best for me. I 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. Turning the garment inside out before putting it on works best. 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. You can adjust the pads if needed to have a smooth feminine shape. 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.

Breast Forms

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.
