Feminizing Your Figure – 4 Secrets to a Slender Waist When You Crossdress

Transforming the straight lines of a man's body into the graceful curves of a woman is essential to succeed as a crossdresser. Many crossdressers get hung up on breast forms and cleavage, but defining your waist is even more important.

A small waist can dramatically enhance your image when you crossdress. Studies have shown that the greater the difference between a woman's waist and hips, the more attractive she is considered to be.

Creating a waist can be a challenge for crossdressers, but it CAN be done. Obviously, you can not create a wasp waist out of a beer belly (gotta lose weight for that), but the good news is that there are a few quick fixes that will instantly whittle your waistline.

Here are 4 secrets to a slender waist when you crossdress:

1. Wear a waist cincher.

Corsets are uncomfortable and impractical. Waist cinchers, on the other hand, are designed to reduce your waistline while still allowing you to breathe.

If you've got a gut, look for plus size shapewear online or in a department store. The best waist cinchers have plastic boning for extra shaping and can take several inches off your waistline.

2. Improve your posture.

Most of us have poor posture due to being slumped over computers all day. Well, there is no point in getting decked out in your best crossdressing gear if you're going to slouch and let your gut hang out!

Good posture, on the other hand, can instantly take 10 pounds off your middle. Stand with your chest lifted, your shoulders back, and your tummy in. This can make a huge difference to your overall shape!

3. Put on a belt.

Belts, especially if they are wide, can act as waist cinchers if you wear them tight enough. Just not too tight! There's nothing worse than seeing two big bulges of fat being squeezed out the sides of your belt.

Belts also define your waist by drawing the eye inward, creating the illusion of having a smaller waistline. Try sticking to black or brown belts since dark colors also make an area look smaller.

4. Make your hips look bigger.

The size of your waist is not as important as your overall proportions. The bigger your hips, the smaller your waist will appear.

Padded panties can give you extra curves, but you can also make your hips look bigger by wearing a full skirt. Look for skirts with pleats or gathers around the hips to balance your proportions and make your waist look smaller in comparison.
