How to create a more feminine body from a male form

If you’re one of those thin, feminine girls with the perfect basis of which to start as a woman – well – I hate you!!! *Laugh* 

stretch-1


I always had one of those bodies most guys prefer: my form responds rapidly with muscle growth from all forms of exercise. Alas, that’s not exactly ideal for female development.

I came up with a workout regimen when I was part-time that was ideally suited for both Miss Reyes, and my male self. I called it my “Renee Routine”. I still use the same exercises today – “post transition” with great success.

Before undertaking any exercise, it’s very important to stretch first. Stretching offers so many benefits. It elongates muscles, prevents injury, pumps blood into the areas you will be working – and helps you move better on the dance floor! Take 5 minutes before each exercise ritual and stretch well.

The very first thing you’ll want to do is record all your current measurements and weight. Sometimes we can’t visually see all the progress we’re making – but the numbers won’t lie to you. The tape measure and scales can become your personal cheer leader if you’ll let them in the game.

If you’ll stick to an exercise program for just three weeks – I promise you’ll start to see results. The key is developing the exercise

habit. If you miss a few days? Don’t let that be an excuse to drop your program. Let it be your motivation to start anew.

Come on GF, let’s hit it!! ((hugs))

section overview

Here I’m going to show you how to:

  • Develop a feminine chest through “exercise”
  • Tightening your tummy
  • Building nice legs & “a behind”


chest development – 2 – 3 days a week

It is difficult to achieve a tight, feminine body, without affecting your male appearance. In no area is this more challenging than in the development of one’s chest. I worked hard to identify an exercise routine that would make my chest look better in a bra – and still look “masculine” – when I go to the beach as a guy.Pullovers – a girls best friend

When a personal trainer is working with a genetic female on her chest development, he will often focus on upper chest development to provide fullness to the breasts. Since we’re a little light in that department, we want to focus on growing the lower area – to give us something to fill that Wonderbra. *Smile*

stretch-3


I want to clarify something in this department based upon letters I’ve received: we are not growing breasts with these exercises. Rather – we’re designing a chest – that will look very feminine in a bra. Such a chest will be tight – but not thick.  
 
I only do one weight related exercise in the chest department – pullovers. If you only have the time (or motivation) to do one form of exercise –
this is the one for you! 

They have a great effect – in that they stretch all your upper body muscles – build your chest in a more feminine manner, and they even work your love handles – all with very little arm growth! Nice combo! ::)) 

By

not focusing on the development of your bicep – but still getting exercise in your upper arm – you’ll find your arms burn off fat, retain strength – and slim down to a more feminine appearance. 

pullover-1


The “bonus” comes from the fact this exercise tends to stretch and exercise your lower chin (reducing that double chin look. I know of no exercise more effective for this problem. Could you ask for anything more?

I use light weight, (20-30 pounds), high repetition (20-25) pullovers. You will need access to a workout bench and a dumbbell to perform this exercise. Tips on neck, lower bottom as lower weight to add stretch and resistance. 

pullover-2


Begin with the dumbbell held over your head. Don’t just bend your arms much – we’re not trying to build our triceps. Rather, keep a slight arm bend and let your chest and back hold the weight. 

Slowly lower it behind your head. Be sure and keep your behind low – to enhance the stretch. It will naturally want to move upward, with the backward movement of the dumbbell. I actually push mine even further down as the dumbbell reaches it’s lowest point to improve the stretching sensation. 

pullover-3


When you raise the dumbbell back over your head, try to pull with your chest and back – not your arms. When you’ve tried it awhile, you’ll understand better what I mean.

Another tip: as you get adept at this movement, try lowering your behind a bit as the weight is almost fully extended behind your head. This will offer further resistance to tighten those love handles. and our tummy. Also, try to keep a bit of “strain” on your neck below your chin as you exercise. This will happen somewhat automatically during pullovers – but remain “conscious” of keeping it going. It will result in a slimmer face over time.

The key to

both these exercises is proper breathing. On the flyes, you breath in as deeply as possible – when you extend your arms outward. You exhale fully – when you bring them back together in the front. With pullovers, you breath in deeply as the weight is being lowered behind your head, and exhale as you are bringing it back up. This breathing – will improve the stretch – from both exercise. ((hugs))Weightless Flyes

flyes-1


Flyes are typically an exercise bodybuilders use to enhance the outer portion of their chest. They lie on a bench, using dumbbells to provide tension, and extend their arms to build outer chest mass. I found a movement that gets similar results, without the bulking up.

flyes-2


This exercise will develop the outer portion of your chest. Along the way, you’ll get a nice firm set of tissue to help with that cleavage – we all love so much. 

Just don’t go too far – I don’t want to be jealous of your tit’s if we ever meet. *Smile*

flyes-3


Begin with your arms crossed in front of your body. Slowing bring them as far back as you can reach – like you would for one of those really big yawns. 

Hold that stretch for about 3 seconds, and slowly bring your arms back across your front. As you bring your arms back to your front, flex your stomach, your arms, and your chest – as tightly as you can. Hold this position for about 3 seconds. 

Repeat this procedure until you can do 25 in a row. That’s a good target to maintain and will give you the look you’re after.

Arms
I’ve only got one recommendation for the workout of your arms: don’t. Between the pullovers you’ll do for your chest, the stretching you’ll do with the flyes, and your everyday activities – you’ll want no further development. ((hugs))abdominal development – daily

Let’s face it, if you want to look fem – you’ve got to try and make sure your tummy is flat as possible. 

Why is

this so important to a t-girl? Simple. We don’t have a GG’s naturally wide hips to offset any extra room in our waist. With a flat tummy – you’re just a girl with narrow hips. With a belly, you will look like a guy.

To accomplish this task, I bought an ab roller. Although I’m not into gimmicks – I must admit – they

really work!! What makes them extra special is that you can turn sideways and work off those love handles. All this without straining your neck.

abroll2


Be sure to review the pamphlet included with your device carefully, and follow the suggested routine.

The

key to flattening your tummy is daily workouts. Unlike the chest, the abdomen gets worked all day, (even as you eat) and needs more “constant” exercise – to get results.

I do my abs first these days – as I find that I get a better stretch in my pullovers if my stomach is already tight from exercise. 

Incidentally, workouts don’t have to be boring! Spice them up on occasion with some lingerie. It will certainly motivate you to work that much harder. *Smile*

legs


legs and “behinds” – 3 days a week

This is the only department we often start on decent fem footing. Most women drool over our legs when they see us en fem. Unfortunately, I ended my football career from a shattered ankle, which still gives me problems. Thus, running is out for me. I used to despise walking: seemed so boring. However, the iPod changed all that. I created the perfect mix of songs to accompany my daily route: adjust the timing of various tunes to match the tough hills and straightaways. One important tip to keep in mind with a rigorous walking program? Work the muscles as you stride: tighten the buttocks with each step, etc. I also usually do my daily walk with a pair of weighted boxing training gloves and work my upper body with constant twists along the way. This combination results in much better exercise & calorie burning.

Well – that’s it. That wasn’t so bad – was it? *Smile* 

I hope you find these tips helpful to your feminine development – and better health! ((hugs))

Sex tips and the Part Time Transgender Girl (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

sissy

I visited a lot of my sister’s home pages. However, I had yet to see any girl take the subject of t-sex – head on. ::)) Being somewhat of the Net’s ask me anything t-chick, I’ve decided to do so. Those of you who “transgender” know me personally would agree: shyness – is not the first word that comes to mind when you think of Renee. LOL

How to Get Past Being Nervous Shopping for Women’s Clothes (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

How to Get Past the Fear of Buying Women’s Clothing as a man


Some cross dressers are not remotely shy about shopping for their female wardrobe. They don’t hesitate to let the clerk know the clothes are for them. Most retailers in today’s more enlightened understanding of transgender issues train their associates to be sensitive to cross dressers and transgender women. However, you’ll still occasionally encounter retail clerks whose personal convictions run polar.

I was never one of those very confident cross dressers since I was scared and nervous when I first started shopping for my female garb. In fact, I often felt everyone was wondering why I was intently browsing women’s apparel. This was my imagination of course – but it

felt real to me. If you’re a bit shy – or new to the femme game – you might experience similar trepidation.

I developed a crutch that helped me get past this initial fear. I’d carry a list in my hand and appear slightly frustrated – like a man on a mission for his wife which he really didn’t want to be on, in the first place. If you are nervous about shopping for women’s clothes, make your list, carry it with you, appear slightly agitated, keep staring at the list as you’re browsing for

her sizes – and you’ll fit right in!

A lot of gals always have a tough time with this. Don’t feel lonely. Up until the time I transitioned, I still had moments where I walked away from potential purchases because my psyche wasn’t up for what I perceived as a potential hassle. This is always wrong – it was just my feeble male ego running for cover. 

Retail stores and their associates don’t necessarily want to understand why a man is buying a skirt – but they need our commerce. When you  make a new purchase for her? You are doing exactly what the store intended for you to do.

Feminization Tips for Crossdressers (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

1rencomn01




Compared to having breasts – you might think no other femme feature is important. 

I’d almost agree with you. *Smile*

However, I think you’ll discover far more feminine looks you can achieve in other parts of your body. These other details are the real difference between the weekend crossdresser – and the knock out Queens.

section overview

Here you’ll find a few ideas regarding…

  • Develop a feminine voice
  • Coloring those nails & toes
  • Cover body hair
  • Tuck your business
  • Use tan lines to create a more femme look
  • Look femme 24/7


Full Body Stocking for Hairy Body Cross Dressing


If you want to create more feminine photos but can’t shave the hair from your body some girls use a fully body stocking to create an effect suitable for photos.

Choosing your new female crossing dressed “name”


Lots of new trans-gals create an acronym of their male name to produce a new femme identification.

The only problem with this method?

This hybrid moniker is often spelled differently than comparable female names – which can make it difficult for others to pronounce. As your new life grows you’ll want to spend more time in public. Guess what the hardest aspect of passing in public is for part-time gals? Their voice”. Thus, if you have a name that must be repeated for people to understand or spelled out? You’re hitting your weakest link

just as people first meet you – and getting read quickly. That’s no fun.

My advice?

Pick something short, sweet and simple that’s definitely female. Names like Kate, Tina, and Susan? They’re perfect!


MTF developing a feminine voice – it’s all – in your head…


Trying to develop a feminine voice?

For some guys – this is a cinch. For others – including me – it’s a nightmare. For those of us with male voices best suited for FM radio – they key to success is talking from the head. 

What do I mean by that? Try this…hold your right hand over the center of your chest and talk. Do you feel that vibration in your chest? That’s your deep male voice. Now – try raising the point of that vibration a few inches higher. You accomplish this by speaking from the head – versus the chest. With practice – you’ll find her – without that typical falsetto voice of some girls.

When I’m heading out to an environment where voice is important – I listen to music by one of my favorite female vocalists – and start singing along with her. As I find my fem inflection, I stop the music and start speaking in that tone. Then I turn the music back on – and try it again. Works for me!

Included is a link to a TS gal with a whole program on improving your fem voice. 

Andrea James Guide on Developing a Femme Voice

In general, you’ll find most feminine voices have a degree of musical melody to them. They rise and fall differently from most males. Take note of these variations. Practice the most common phrases you will use.

Regardless how masculine your voice sounds, you will do a lot better if you will work on your femme vocabulary.

“What’s up bud?”, needs a slight little alteration to:

“Hi sweetie, how are you?”

Nails & Toes for Cross Dressing


Toes



Perhaps nothing will enhance you fem appearance as easily as painting your nails and toes. Start your fem nail development by getting a basic male manicure and pedicure if you can. You will discover that pushing back the cuticle will be of great benefit in helping to reduce smearing as you paint.

Personally, I try to keep my nails right in between male & female. How? I use a nail file every three or four days and shape them to a slightly pointed basis (trim the sides & corners) – while keeping the length to a non-noticeable level. They don’t look feminine without polish – but add the paint, and they appear to “grow” in length. Try finding a length you won’t get comments with. Also, don’t be afraid to test a variety of nail polish colors. We all tend to naturally gravitate to red – but you’ll find it fun to mix up your palette now and then.

I use the quick dry nail polish, because I rarely have time to go through the waiting period for traditional formulas to dry. However, I often add a light coat of clear sealant enamel, because the quick dry colors tend to wear-off very easily.

Once you get the hang of working with nail polish remover, you can get the color off in minutes. Don’t buy any of the fancy versions of polish remover. Acetone is acetone – is acetone! Have to be honest, getting nail tips put on by a pro is unbeatable. I’ve never been able to do it right myself. 

Nails are decidedly my weakest link. In case you haven’t noticed from most of my photos, I rarely even paint them anymore – let alone color them. Why? The usual female reason – I’m always running late when I’m headed out. Since I take my pictures upon returning home – I’m not about to add them then.

I wore the press on version. They really do look good. However, make certain everything is done before you apply them. And I do mean everything.

I wore them when I visited my dear friend Lady Ashely in Philly – as she always gave me grief about not having them in my pictures. Never a good time to give another queen ammo to trash you. 

However: nail tips don’t come off easily! The first time I had them done I got myself in a real mess, because I couldn’t totally remove them. I had to go into a meeting hiding my hands until I could leave and have the remnants removed. That experience was one for my diary.

Don’t forget your toes! Painting your toes is so very easy, and you can leave them painted as long as you are not going to have to remove your socks in front of someone who wouldn’t understand. Painted toes add such a perfect touch to your illusion. And everything, which adds to your image of femininity is in my opinion – a plus. They don’t show if you wear pumps, which is another reason (along with comfort) I prefer open-toed shoes. I pretty much always go with red in this department as it covers so well as my nails are not in the best of condition. Again, cover your base coat with a coat of clear sealer and you’ll enjoy the glow for a very long time.

Body Hair and Cross Dressing



I realize a lot of you are not in a position to shave your legs and arms. According to a TG girlfriend of mine (Cindy), there are several ways around this little problem. The easiest and most common method to mask hair, is to wear suntan pantyhose under all your items as a color base. Two or three pair will hide even the hairiest of legs. Several firms sell complete body stockings which will cover ya from head to toe for this little problem. Also, a set of opera gloves will do wonders for dark, hairy arms. If you are able, you can shave the tops of your thighs to a point where you can look good in stockings and garters, and still show hairy legs in shorts.

Hair03


For less intimate attire, the process is much easier to deal with. Long sleeve blouses, dresses, etc. will hide the thickest forest. Just remember, this much layering can change your size a bit – so if that skirt was a little tight to start – it may need an alteration now. Also, it’s a bit warm – dress accordingly.

Another option is long sleeved Lycra outfits. These garments offer the dual effect of covering the hair on your arms, and slimming your biceps – all in one fell swoop. Try to buy them as slim fitting as possible, without being so tight to make you look overweight.

Hip Padding for Cross Dressing



Behind



Certainly one of the most distinguishing female features of genetic females is wide hips – and a curvy behind. Unless you are just very lucky – this will usually not be your strong suit.

If you have narrow hips (as most of us non-hormone girls do), there are a number of things you can try to present a more feminine figure.

This is certainly one of the easier problems to solve. There are numerous enhancers available for this area of your body. The best ones really look good. I bought a $40.00 version from Frederick’s several years ago, but wore it only with loose skirts and jeans – because the padding was so unevenly distributed.

One night while out clubbing, I met up with an old girlfriend from Key West who is a rather famous tg. She has been featured on HBO a couple of times – and is absolutely stunning. One of her most impressive features is her hips and behind. Her form allows her to wear the tightest skirts and pants – and put any woman to shame. The truth is: it’s not her form – but her enhancer.

If I were going to invest in just one enhancement product, hips would be it. It’s quite easy to create breasts – tape, coloring, exercise, wonderbras – the list of options is almost endless. Hips and behinds are as easy not so easily improved. You can wear multiple sets of pantyhose, but this did little but add bulk on me.

Also, since our legs are typically the best feature we have, why not add to the allure where the eyes go first anyway. Building off your strengths – has always been my mantra.

A couple of tips on getting an enhancer: First, stay away from the voluptuous versions unless you’ve got the body to match it. I did this initially, and it looked silly. Second, when wearing your enhancer – pull it down a bit. We tend to be long waisted and women’s curves start lower than ours. Use the mirror to guide you.

 A nice set of hip enhancers will look great on you. It will also slim the appearance of your waist by expanding the hips. I’ve included a link where I got mine. They offer a custom fitted unit. One thing I like about them is you can send your unit back for modification for a reasonable charge. That beats the heck out of most custom things I buy that don’t work – and I get stuck with them.

Classic Curves – For Top of the Line Hip Enhancers

I’ve reached a point where I rarely wear such devices since my outfits are usually a little short on material. To alleviate this problem, I first focused on posture. It’s actually not that difficult to learn to stand and walk with your behind poking out a bit. Standing should include bending to the side. Finally, most of my short skirts are 100% cotton, which possesses enough support to automatically cause a flared appearance of the hips.

Tucking for Crossdressers



tucked


If you are going to the beach at some point, one skill you might find helpful to develop is tucking. Tucking is basically the process of hiding your male genitalia from view.

In case you haven’t noticed from my photo’s, I don’t typically give a flying crap about tucking. I’m a t-girl – and quite proud of it. Typically, you can just adjust your inventory and stand in such a way that nothing ever shows. However, if you wish to hide your masculinity in a tight fitting bathing suit, this is often your best option.

There are two basic options to resolve this problem. The first is to carefully, slide each of your testicles up into the scrotum area above your sac, and subsequently tape them in place. I do one testicle at a time. Mine are a little large, and I can’t seem to hold it all together as I prepare to tape. ::)) Some new girls get frightened by this process for fear their jewels will somehow get lost. Trust me honey – they are nicely attached and will find there way home. Finally, take your friend and tuck him nice and neatly between your legs. Some girls suggest taping him as well but they never mention what you are supposed to do when you must pee. I leave mine alone. Usually, a pair of snug panties or a bathing suit will hold your little operation in place.

Crossdressing Secret Weapon: Tan Lines


tan-06



There is nothing I enjoy more than fem tan lines – and they are so very easy to achieve and maintain. I start off by visiting a tanning bed to get the basic lines I’m looking for. I take a pair of string-sided panties in my pocket, and put them on in the privacy of my booth after I’ve applied my lotion. Incidentally, I use the same panties each time I tan so I can keep the lines the same and intensify the contrast over time. Just don’t forget to wash them now and again.

Another trick is to adjust the rear of your panties inward, so the outer edges of your buns get tan. This causes your hips to appear wider than they actually are. I’m not in a position to tan in a high-waisted swim suit, because I still must go the beach as a guy in the summer. By using panties, I keep the tan line below the belt. If you’ll pull your panties up above your tan lines as you wear them, it shows off your lines in a sexy manner.

hightan


 Your second tanning option is to wear a string bikini top and create the illusion that you have breasts. I do this in the winter when I know I won’t face concerns about removing my shirt in front of others. It provides a fairly convincing look, which you can accentuate with a coating of light colored foundation make up before going out en fem. Being able to do this, is a matter of if you’re personal lifestyle will afford you this option.

toptan


Tanning beds are pretty hard on your skin. Whatever you do – do not tan your face! You will be wearing so much make up, it won’t matter. Your face already gets too much sun exposure just from being outside. Most of the better beds have a button you can shut off the rays to your face – use it!

I only use the non-burning beds – and go as few times as possible. I support this base with light applications of self-tanning milk. I reiterate light, because if you use too much of the stuff – it will come off on everything you own.

Once you get your basic lines, a once a month trip to the bed and weekly application of lotion will keep it looking good.

Nothing



Crossdressing Feminization


Can we still look like women when we’re down to nothing?

If your lifestyle will afford you the option, the final leg of your fem development is often looking female without the help of much else. Now I’m not referring to you sisters that have hormonally enhanced hips and silicone filled breasts. I’m talking to gals like me that fight the grind of rapid hair growth, with hips narrower than your shoulders and not much fem elsewhere.

I played with this a great deal as my narrow hips put a limit on how womanly I was going to look in my birthday suit. I really didn’t take these steps for anyone else. I did it for Renee. Not being able to dress that often can get me grumpy. Looking more fem in the shower each morning keeps a smile on my face between sessions.

First, I keep my toes painted all the time. Second, I tan once a week with a woman’s bathing suit on. Initially, I was reluctant to use feminine bottoms versus panties due to the fact the tan lines come up so high. However, other than low level hip huggers, you’ll never see it. Of course, the tan lines around my breasts mean my shirt simply doesn’t come off but that’s not as challenging as you might first think. Ever seen a woman take her shirt off around friends? Not a common occurrence is it?
