There are lots of different styles of dresses available to both men and women but knowing how to style them to get the correct look is important. Depending on the shape you want to create or how comfortable/sexy you want to look, choosing the right men’s dresses for the right occasion can make or break an outfit. We’ve found that peplums, fit and flare, bodycon, long sleeves, midi dresses and v-necks all have their merits for providing a more feminine shape when worn on a male figure. Let Glamour Boutiques style experts give you a hand with a dose of style inspiration around some of the best dresses for crossdressers.
The Peplum Dress is one of our biggest sellers, selling out quite often. With such a high demand dress, it should signal to you that this is a must have. What makes the Peplum Dress so popular? It’s clever design exaggerates an hourglass feminine figure. Even for someone with a rectangular or flat shape, this dress can help you look femme. The peplum addition will also help create the illusion of bigger hips. While black is the go to for most, the Fuschia Peplum Dress that we carry is definitely a head turner for those of you who want a little extra attention. The Peplum Dress is a great dress to keep in your femme closet to use for a night out with the girls or on a date.
With its black crushed velvet, this Fit and Flare Dress takes you back to the 70s with its retro look and feel. The top of the dress is fitted which accentuates your bust. As the dress flares out in its skirt section, the illusion of wider female hips hits a home run. The Fit and Flare Dress is a perfect feminizing dress for crossdressers with its long sleeves, broader shoulders and longer torso cut. It’s also an excellent dress for those who are not ready for a tight figure-hugging style and yet, gives a very pleasing female shape.This is another great dress for a night out. If you like this dress but want a flashier color, you can also get this one in navy, which is very popular with our customers.
A bodycon dress is a tight figure-hugging dress, often made from stretchy material. The name derives from “body confidence” or, originally, “body conscious.” Normally made from a lycra/polyester mix, the bodycon dress has lots of stretch in it to accentuate female curves in all the right places. Suiting slim and curvaceous body shapes make these ideal for crossdressers. Make sure to use the correct shaping garments to achieve the desired female hourglass curves. You can create an authentic female figure this way. Our most popular bodycon dress is our Little Black Dress for Crossdressers and happens to be the #1 seller of all our dresses for men.
Long sleeve dresses are a must for crossdressers. Many crossdressers cannot contemplate hair removal and so garments that help hide hair and allow for an authentic female appearance. Our long-sleeved dresses for crossdressers are a staple when presenting en-femme. Glamour Boutique tailor their dress styles to crossdresser proportions so long-sleeved styles cover the whole arm and the hair underneath. Buying genetic female dresses will almost certainly result in sleeves being 2 to 4 inches short with the resulting wrist and forearm hair on show. These dresses make the wearer feel confident and sexy when dressing en femme. Such dresses can be worn on their own or with some simple accessories, like matching belt and shoes.
The Midi Dress
A midi dress is any dress that falls below the knee and above the ankle, the “mid-calf” is where it gets the name. The difference between a midi dress and a maxi dress is that a maxi dress falls below this point, either at the ankle or the floor. You can wear a formal or dressy version of this dress. For a fancy event, wear high heels with a midi dress as they look great together. This style has been a very popular dress length for a while now and we don’t see it going away.
A deep v neck dress style is perfect for many crossdressers that have a strong male square-shaped jaw. This style gives the illusion of the jaw being more pointed/elfin-like and therefore less of a male shape. It will instill confidence in the wearer that they are presenting an authentic appearance when dressing en femme. Because this style of dress shows off more skin than others, it is better suited to evening-wear, like a club or cocktail bar. For many dressing en femme it also offers the chance to show cleavage by using adhesive with your silicone breast forms or by using a silicone breastplate.
These are six dresses that should occupy your femme wardrobe and give you a great selection to choose from. Once you find the dress that gives you confidence and makes you feel sexy en femme, you know you’re ready to show off.
