I think many transgender girls and cross dressers would like the perfect hourglass figure – often cited as the ideal fem shape. It’s just so feminine and sexy to have curves in all the right places. However, most of us, were not blessed with a naturally tiny waist. With no natural curves of the hips, crossdressers need an awesome corset to get what they’re looking for. Steel boned corsets are certainly in vogue and you can learn a lot by seeing how celebrities wear them.
Male bodies, as you all know, don’t have natural curves like a woman’s. For cross dressers trying to get that perfect figure, they need to master the three areas:
An awesome corset can help do just that. If you get a great corset it will raise your breasts, tighten your waist, and make you look like you have wider hips. Take a look at the picture to the right. This woman’s corset is lifting her breasts, and elongating her spine causing her to stand taller and have better posture. Her long corset actually makes her look like she has a longer torso because she is standing up perfectly straight and not slouching. Because it is tighter on her waist, her hip bones stand out giving her a perfect hourglass figure, sought after by celebrities and CD’s alike.
So, which famous celebs wear corsets well and what can we learn from them?
BUST: Caitlyn’s stylist put her immediately into steel boned corsets for her Vanity Fair shoot because she knows corsets will bring out the curves that this family is known for. Look at how the corset emphasize her breasts in this photo?
By wearing a corset to help lift her breast area Caitlyn helps to emphasize her beautiful bust whilst at the same time reducing focus of her shoulders. Also notice the clever use of the hair and makeup to feminize and draw focus from any male physical traits – all important lessons.
WAIST: Probably the most infamous corset wearing celebrity of modern times is the burlesque performer Ms. Dita Von Tees. She has single-handedly elevated the performance world of burlesque back to the bygone era of Gypsy Rose Lee but has elevated it to a new level of sophistication. Ms. Von Tees is a self-styled fashion icon and has her own collections available world wide.
An avid corset-wearer for many years, Dita has made the most of her average sized body-shape to accentuate an hourglass figure by training her waist so that she has increased the proportion between waist and hips and bust. For crossdressers who have a very little hip girth in comparison and broader waist lines than most females it is important to know the effect of changing these proportions. Narrowing the waist by 3+ inches with a corset not only makes the bust and hips more prominent.
HIPS: One of the most sought-after Hollywood figures from a bygone age is that of Sophia Loren. Her classic pinched waist in a full cup corset gives this tall lady an ideal hourglass figure – even with today’s pin-up models it is hard to beat the iconic black corset picture of Ms. Loren .
With the use of a steel-boned corset the film star is able to nip the waist in an extra 3 to 4 inches from her normal waist thus exaggerating the proportion of waist to hip measurement. This is something a crossdresser can do when they waist train. An initial 3 inch reduction on the waist will help create the illusion of hips. For an even bigger transformation pair up a steel l boned corset and a padded panty like our Padded Rear and Hip Shaping Girdle and you too will look like a classic Hollywood icon with an hourglass figure.
From Victorian ladies to past Hollywood starlets to modern-day celebrities like Katie Perry steel boned corsets still have a part to play in shaping the classic female hourglass. Take a look at your body in a mirror and decide how you are going to create a more female figure. There are many shaping garments available today but few can make such a transformation as a steel-boned corset.
Make sure you choose a corset that will work for a male torso. A classic female corset will tend to flare too much in the hip area so that the corset closes at the bottom whilst there is still a large gap at the top of the lacing. Here at GlamourBoutique.com we make exclusive designs like our Extreme Female Shape Underbust Corset which are designed to fit a male torso so they fit correctly and are hard wearing so you can cinch with confidence.
