Eighty percent of women are wearing the wrong bra size. Whether you're wearing a ratty old friend you're reluctant to replace, a fashion-y brassiere you like the color of or one in the size you've simply always worn, there's an overwhelming probability you're wearing an over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder that's wrong for you. "A lot of women stick to the number in their head from when they were first fit," Kay-Lin Richardson, director of sales and spokeswoman for Panache Lingerie explained. "They'll say, I'm a 34 B or a 36 C. I've been guilty of that. I couldn't imagine that I would ever be a D cup because that wasn't in my head and it wasn't my size." But what most women don't realize is that their bodies are constantly changing. A bra size could change with as little as a five-pound weight loss or gain, changing physical activity or even age. "You should probably get fit every year -- just go and check in to make sure you're still wearing the right size," Richardson told StyleList. "You probably are, but you probably wouldn't even realize that your bras aren't fitting anymore because that's just the way they've always fit you." Continue reading
Highlighting your assets is the secret to being a super hot crossdresser or transgender woman.
It’s impossible for people to notice your “flaws” if they’re too busy looking at something else – like your sexy legs, breasts, or behind.
But it’s NOT about wearing the tightest, shortest thing you can find. It’s about attracting attention in a classy and tasteful way.
Here are 9 ways to highlight your assets:
If your LEGS are your best asset …
Choose your best skirt length
The most elegant and flattering skirt length is generally 1-2 inches above or below the knee. (Notice I did NOT say crotch length!)
Here’s a simple test for finding the best skirt length for your body:
- Stand in front of a mirror wearing the shoes you normally wear with skirts or dresses.
- Hold up a piece of fabric and raise and lower the hemline of the fabric in front of your legs.
- Notice which length make your legs look best.
Although pantyhose isn’t as popular as it used to be, hosiery adds polish and definition to the legs. It’s also a great way to cover up imperfections.
The secret is to wear the sheerest pantyhose you can find for a sexy, modern look.
Try D’orsay pumps

The D’Orsay is a shoe style where the sides are cut away to reveal the arch of the foot. This is an elegant shoe style that’s perfect for showing off beautiful legs.
While high heels give your legs maximum definition, the D’Orsay is also flattering in flats and low pumps.
If your BREASTS are your best asset …
Go for deep “v” necklines
The easiest way to show off beautiful breasts is to wear a low cut top – and v-necks are especially flattering.
But how low is too low? A good rule of thumb is to show off 20%-40% of your bust. This gives you sex appeal, while keeping it classy.
Look for tops that frame your breasts
Another flattering option is to wear tops that frame your breasts. Think halter tops or tops that have shirring or trimming at the bustline.
The more defined the bust area, the more “the girls” will stand out.
Apply a bit of shimmer powder

A final way to make your bust pop is to apply a bit of shimmer powder to the visible part of the breasts. This highlights the breasts, similar to the way eyeshadow highlights the eyes.
Just be sure you aren’t using anything too glittery or shiny. A shimmer powder like Sephora MicroSmooth Baked Luminizer or Stila All Over Shimmer Duo will give you a subtle glow – not make you look like a disco ball.
If your BUTT is your best asset …
Wear skirts or dresses with ruching in the back
Ruching (i.e. gathering along the seam line) adds volume to your curves and highlights your assets. It’s one of the easiest ways to make a great butt look even better.
Look for bottoms with a sweet heart or “v” shaped back yokeContinue reading

- Do apply make-up in the lighting you’ll be photographed in so it’s not too heavy,” says Factor. “For natural light, avoid sparkle -- it accentuates fine lines and ages you.”'
