The Top 7 Bra Styles Every Crossdresser and MTF Transgender Woman Should Own

With so many bra options to choose from, it’s easy to go wrong and wear a bra that’s the incorrect size or style for your body type.

Crossdressers and transgender women have unique needs when it comes to bras. If you want to enhance your feminine curves (without wasting money on bad bra purchases), consider these 7 bra styles:

1. POCKET BRA

A pocket bra, or mastectomy bra, has pockets in the cups to hold breast forms securely in place. If you wear breast forms (especially large or heavy forms), a pocket bra is a must.

2. FRONT CLOSURE BRA

Crossdressers and transgender women tend to have wide rib cages and/or widely spaced breasts. This can make it hard to find a bra that fits properly.

Enter the front closure bra. Front closure bras have a clasp in the front of the bra instead of the back. These bras have wider set cups, making them easier to fit.

3. T-SHIRT BRA

The t-shirt bra is every girl’s best friend. It’s a seamless, molded cup bra that’s designed to look smooth under your clothes – even the most form-fitting tee. Best of all, t-shirt bras come in a wide range of sizes.

4. CONVERTIBLE BRA

A common complaint I hear from crossdressers and transgender women is that many bras have straps that aren’t long enough for them.

Convertible bras offer a perfect solution. Convertible bras have removable straps that can be worn in different ways – including crisscrossed. Because of this, they have longer straps than regular bras.

5. BALCONETTE BRA

Balconette bras have cups that are cut horizontally across the bust. This is a beautiful cup style that’s particularly flattering to wide rib cages and/or wide set breasts.

Most balconette bras are padded, so they’re also great for giving “the girls” some extra oomph.

6. WIRELESS BRA

Underwire bras offer maximum support, so they’re ideal if you wear breast forms. However, they can be hard to fit if you have a wide chest.

Consider wearing a wireless bra instead. Wireless bras have a more forgiving fit, so they’re much more comfortable.

If you want to wear a soft cup bra with breast forms, look for a wireless pocketed bra or attach the breast forms to your chest with tape or adhesive.

7. ADHESIVE BRA

Adhesive bras are a backless, strapless bra style that’s attached to the breasts with adhesive.

These bras are fabulous for creating cleavage, so they’re a must for your femme wardrobe. (Click here to learn more about how to create cleavage with an adhesive bra.)

IN CONCLUSION

While you don’t need to limit yourself to these 7 bra styles (the sky’s the limit in bra land!), they’re a great place to start.

Now I’d like to hear about YOUR favorite bras. Is there a particular bra style or brand that works for you?

Sizes: Good News and Bad News

The Bad

On Friday, I mentioned buying a new Rago bra and girdle. The garments arrived Friday afternoon and I tried them on to see how they fit. I ordered the bra and girdle sizes that I usually wear, so I was very disappointed that both items were too small.

I put the girdle on OK and it hugged me like a glove, but it was not long enough. Although it is billed as “high waisted,” it barely reached my waistline and was obviously not designed for women who are 5 feet 14 inches tall. I returned it for a refund.

The bra was very tight. The cups were a perfect fit for my breasts, but the band was too small by about an inch and a half, so I sent it back and ordered the next larger band size. If you purchase this bra, I advise you to order it one band size larger than the size you think you need.

The Good

I joined JustFab about four years ago. On the first day of each month, they email me suggestions of new footwear that match my style requirements.

They have a nice selection of shoes and boots at reasonable prices (about $40 a pair), but size 11 was the largest size they offered. Sometimes 11 fits me, so early on, I ordered some heels from JustFab, but I had to return them because they were too small.

Even though I stopped buying footwear from JustFab, they kept emailing me new suggestions every month and every month, I rejected their suggestions. (If I don’t reject them, they bill me after the 5th of the month whether I choose something or not.)

Retro-girl that I am, I have had a hankering for a pair of white booties. So when the monthly JustFab email arrived on Sunday, I decided to explore their offerings just for the heck of it and lo and behold, they had a pair of white booties to die for… if they only offered them in my size!

And then I noticed that they had the boots in size 12! I checked other boots and shoes that they offered and discovered that most of them also had a size 12 option.

I had no idea that JustFab started selling size 12’s! When did that happen?

Needless to say, I ordered the booties and they are on their way.

Etched Lace Men’s Bra

Alison alerted me to this “Etched Lace Men’s Bra.”

The description for this men’s brassiere reads, “We love the clean lines of this crisp monochromatic crop-top for men. Made from a medium-weight stretch fabric embossed with an etched lace design, this bra features a curved inset of lace at the bust for contouring. With a shaped athletic-styled back and pop-over styling for easy access. Etched Lace Men’s Bra.”

So, who is selling this item of lingerie for lads?

You would probably guess it was an online exotic lingerie store, but you would be wrong. It’s Walmart!

Walmart also sells panties for men.

What is this world coming to? 😉
