The Girlfriend and I were out shopping yesterday when I ran across this dress in of all places Mark’s Work Warehouse (Canadian Chain) and it was on sale for $40. Since all Crossdressers seem to have an affinity for dresses, it’s even in our name, I obviously had to try it on and since it fit so well I bought it. I said it may be the greatest Crossdressing dress ever so I now I have to back that statement up. A major down side to being a male to female crossdresser is that we simply do not have the proper shape to fill out the clothes properly, particularly in the chest department.
This means that we typically need a bra and something to fill it with to properly fill out our wardrobe and while almost anything can be used my personal favourite is my silicone breast forms (see My Breasts to see how much). I have Silicone Breast forms that weigh about a pound each and then foam forms that weigh almost nothing but tend to ride up out the top of the bra.
Always needing to wear a bra can limit our dress options and in summer the best dress is one without a bra. This dress has a built in bra and the two cups inside of the dress easily support my two silicone C cup breast forms and if I use my foam ones they don’t ride up, I wish all bras were this good. This also means I finally have a dress with a low back where my straps normally would be, scratch one of the list.
Another great part of this dress as with any flowing dress like it is that it hides that distinctive bulge in the panties. Tight form fitting skirts and dress are fun but they are not forgiving of a little extra anywhere, around the waist or the rather shocking CD camel toe. This means there is no need for extensive tucking, taping or use of a gaff. Even when I tried with a pair of sport boxers the extra in the front bottom wasn’t really noticeable.
The plus side is that for those of you in (or near) Canada you can get this dress or one of many similar at Mark’s on sale and they had many other patterns to choose from, I have simply always wanted a red dress and this is though being a pinkish red is a reasonable stand in. That and the features make it ideal for my uses. Oh right and it looks good and is super comfortable without the need for extensive foundation garments.
Is this the ideal dress for crossdressing? What are some features of dresses you consider when you are buying dresses?
