It can be difficult enough to find clothes that fit a MtoF crossdresser but add in the fact you are tall too! That flattering pair of skinny jeans suddenly become too short and finding the right footwear that will fit and feminize your appearance can be difficult. But bear in mind, your height is advantage. You just need to know how to make the most of it.
The most common fashion tips you should pay attention to concern:
- Sleeve Length
Many tall crossdressers visiting our store comment on how they wish they were shorter and less noticeable. We think tall ladies are very sexy so own it and follow some of these simple 5 suggestions and you will ooze feminine self-confidence.
Don’t Be Scared of High Heels: There’s nothing more sexy than a 6’+ catwalk model sashaying down the runway with a pair of high heels. You are blessed with long legs so make a feature of them. We love thigh-high boots on a tall crossdresser. In fact they are far more flattering than say short ankle boots that only emphasize your height.
Look for Full or 3/4 Length Sleeves: A big giveaway to someone’s height is often a trouser length or sleeve length being too short. Try to find specialist clothing with the correct length for such garments. If you find a great pair of tight jeans or leggings and they are just a bit short then give them a cuff by tucking and make them ¾ length. Look for 3/4 length sleeves too rather than a full length sleeve that is a couple of inches too short.
Add a Belt to the Waistline: If you add a belt to any outfit it will break up that tall full-length look. Try to find one that’s at least 3″ wide as a statement piece that will pull focus and really help define a feminine shape. Stretch belts are perfect and also help to cinch in the soft middle to give a little extra feminine shaping too!
Shop Oversize Accessories that Match/Coordinate: Tall girls and crossdressers can really be adventurous with oversize accessories. Chunky necklaces and large clip-on earrings look just right on taller girls. Also, color-coordinate your accessories with matching wide belts, shoes and oversize handbags to make a statement. Wearing red heels and matching wide red belt with a little black dress for example, is not only stylish but visually gives correct proportions to your female shape.
Shop Clothing to Nullify Height/Length: If you are a tall crossdresser then look to add width with skirts and the skirt portion of the dress. This is also helpful if you happen to have manly shoulders; dress in garments like a Peplum Dress that not only helps with your height but makes your feminine proportions more correct by adding the illusion of more hips. Pay careful attention to hem length. Just right are long maxi-dresses/skirts OR skirts and dresses that stop just above the knee.
Being tall is a gift and makes you one of a kind so embrace your gorgeous figure but know how to make the very best of your assets. Be confident and carry yourself with good upright and open posture to give off an attractive, feminine appearance at all times.
