Unfortunately, most lingerie is designed for the bodies of cis women. As a result, choosing the best lingerie as an MTF transgender woman can be somewhat frustrating and challenging. Given that not all lingerie shops are trans-friendly, many MTF transgender women opt to shop online. However, when they do so, they usually end up with products that are ill-fitting or otherwise unsuitable. This situation is made worse due to the fact that there are fewer options for women with small busts and large band sizes: the category most MTF trans women fall into. Luckily, some of the challenges that come with choosing lingerie can be mitigated by considering the following factors.
One of the primary factors to consider when choosing lingerie is your comfort. To ensure that you will be comfortable in the lingerie you choose, it is imperative that you know your body size. Additionally, you need to pay attention to the style and cut of the lingerie, as it plays a major role in whether or not a piece fits. It is important that you feel good in your outfit, and that can only be achieved if you are comfortable as opposed to when you are continually adjusting, scratching at, or shifting ill-fitting lingerie. Remember, if it feels uncomfortable, it will surely look uncomfortable.
Style and Texture
To be comfortable in the lingerie you are wearing, you must ensure that you choose the right texture. The style of your lingerie is important both to how it looks without clothes and how it lays underneath other pieces. This means that the style and texture of your undergarments should complement your clothes. For example, if you are wearing a thin shirt, avoid bras with lace because they will appear bumpy or uneven.
Given that lingerie is an intimate and personal piece of clothing, a lot of your decision should be based on whether or not you like the color. If you believe black is sexy, then go for black lingerie. The only thing you should keep in mind is that simple colors, like black and white, tend to accentuate your body shape better. This means that you should generally avoid loud patterns. In addition, it is advisable to avoid bright colors such as neon because they can come across as too flashy.
Another important factor to consider when purchasing lingerie is the price. Even though pricey lingerie tends to be more stylish, there is no guarantee it will fit suitably. When shopping online, always go for reasonably priced lingerie because you will not have a chance to try it on. There is no point buying expensive lingerie only to give it away because it does not fit well. If you are shopping at a lingerie store and have the opportunity to try things on, however, it would be a good idea to spoil yourself with a few pricey, well-fitting pieces.
