For everyday clothes, not for special events, do you prefer to wear clothing that fits more loosely, such as an oversized sweater, or do you prefer to wear tighter fitting clothing, such as yoga pants and skinny jeans?

Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Generally, snug looks much better on me, both tops and pants. However, I prefer flared skirts and dress bottoms. The flare really helps give the illusion of a waist because I have narrow hips and am long-waisted.

Pants I like skinny, because I have good looking legs (so people say).  Tops can be a little wider, because my upper torso has not the shape that I would like to have.

Snug fits well on me usually. Only really baggy clothes I have are my hoodies for lounging around the house

Snug and form-fitting whenever possible. I have always had hips and a well-defined waist. In my case, making my shape readily apparent helps make it more obvious that I am a woman. I hate having to wear heavy coats in winter because they hide so much, although I had no gendering issues wearing a parka on a shopping trip in downtown Denver yesterday.

Do you have a packable down jacket for winter? I bought two. I have a  Calvin Klein long one and a shorter Michael Kors one. They’re light weight and super warm still. They hug me a little more than a traditional heavy coat so they show off my figure a little

Unfortunately I don't have a packable down jacket. I have fairly long arms (used to wear 15 1/2 x 34 shirts). Just about everything I try on has sleeves about 2 - 3 inches too short. I feel lucky to have found a parka with long enough sleeves. I will check them out though, maybe I can find some with really long sleeves. Thanks!

It would be nice if a company would cater to Trans women and the struggles some of us have with fitting clothes! I hope you can find something! TJ maxx has been a lifesaver for coats lol

Coats or jackets with a inner or outer drawstring to draw in the waist, or a belt, can accentuate the figure.

I've been altering my clothes to fit snugly.  I can now turn a men's T shirt into a fitted women's shirt!  And resew the shoulders if I necessary.

Great!  Can I hire you?  I could do some welding for you in return!

Snug and close fitting, is my preference for the waist down. Skinny jeans rule.

For the top, I like both. I always feel more feminine if my top is snug, but I still like wearing a loose flowing blouse.

Sorry, doing it professionally would take all the fun out of it.

I even do my own silver brazing.  Though if the heating system needs work I let the pros handle that. ;D

Skinny jeans are my go to! I love the way my legs and butt look in them, and they make me feel confident. I feel baggier clothes don't do enough to show my "curves". I don't really wear dresses or skirts, but enjoy well fitting shirts.

        Prefer loose fitting, strictly semi-formal male attire
. . . especially when asleep on lazy-boy by the front door!  ;D  ;)

I like skinny jeans/leggings, because I have darn good looking legs, the top needs to be a little wider because I still have that muffin top look, and am rather big chested (rib cage, not boobs).  Once I lost the 20 lbs I ope I will loose, I can go with tighter stuff (I hope)

What do you think about it?

          Looks cozy Kofer (and Welcome!) can't beat the color choices and price! For women's wear I really like Duluth Trading although very expensive. Their Fleece Jackets and "dry-on-the-fly" slacks are super warm, lightweight and make cross-femme dressing easy, been trying to stay away from denim and blue-jeans their cotton button-down shirts are great, flared at the hips@

Because of the fact that my body seems to be shaped in a way which allows me to wear clothing that is readily available in stores, I just buy stuff that is on sale.  This way I can try it on and see how I like it/it looks on me.  Mail Order clothing is way to big of a hussle, if one does not like what one got and needs to return it.
