CROSSDRESSER PADDING HIPS / BREASTS
Crossdressers have two ways to approach this issue which are pad up or trim down. Crossdresser padding up is the easiest because you buy your clothes based on your shoulder width or chest size then pad up where you need it. For instance, a size 16W women’s dress size will accommodate a 47 inch bust, 38-inch waist, and 47 inch hips. Take the difference between your actual measurements and the 16W. Buy the breast form and hip pad sizes you need to fill in the difference.
The other way is to buy miss’s sizes which has a larger selection which tops out at 18 usually. I have worn a Misses size 18 that fits my shoulders for years and had them altered to take in the waist and hips properly. That is expensive when you add it all up. If I buy a 16W from the women’s section it usually fits perfect without alterations. Buying skirts is a different story I buy 14W because I don’t like the larger hip that goes with the 16W.
I am a mature crossdresser too. I find your website full of great information.
