For those looking to create a more feminine silhouette, there are two options: compression garments or padding. Both are effective ways to achieve the perfect feminine shape, but which one is best for you?

A simple rule of thumb is that you want your waist to appear smaller than your chest and hips.

What is padding?
As previously discussed, a key element of masculine to feminine transformation is body shaping. Padding is a great way to achieve a curvy feminine hourglass figure. By enhancing your waist and bum, you are actively making your waist appear smaller. Padding is great for those who don’t like wearing tight and restrictive compression garments. The most commonly worn types of padding are padded panties, and various types of hip pads.

Regular padded panties for enhancing your bum, cinching padded panties which cinch your waist while enhancing your bum, and combined bum and hip padded panties which enhance both your bum and hips. The hip and butt pads are made from lightweight foam for comfortable wear. These padded panties help transform your body into that curvaceous silhouette you’ve been craving!
There are a multitude of hip pads on the market in a variety of different sizes. There are lightweight and breathable large crossdressing hip pads that slide into pantyhose for an authentic exaggerated feminine hourglass figure. There are silicone hip pads which adhere to your natural shape balancing out your figure in a comfortable way. There is even a new piece of female shapewear enhancement, it is the silicone hip and butt pads. They add extra padding to the bum and hip area, but they have a shorter leg tail so they can be worn with short skirts.
Padding will help you achieve a curvier silhouette and add definition to the areas where you want to create more volume. Some crossdressers prefer padding to compression garments because it gives them the added volume they want while still feeling comfortable!
