There are so many ways for a crossdresser to shop online, but shopping for yourself in a store is such a different and special experience. So how do you shop for women’s clothes in a store as a man? Do use these crossdressing tips, and you will find success!
Shop Online First
If you are going to a specific store with an online website, absolutely check it out online first and make a list. This is very helpful especially if you print and take the list with you. If you have to interact with a sales associate, this list will really be helpful! Crossdressing is your passion, and planning makes it sexier!
Have your Backstory Set
This may seem strange a tip, but it is always nice to know what to say if asked, “Who are you shopping for today?” If you are terrified of outing yourself as a crossdresser, don’t! Say it is for a family member, girlfriend, or wife if you have on a wedding ring! If you have a story you have rehearsed, it will come out naturally, and you will not feel embarrassed.
Know your sizes
My favorite crossdresser tip is to know sizes! Often you will not be able to go into a dressing room to try things on, so have a list of the store’s size chart. Measure your chest and waist and look on the size chart online to see which size corresponds best. Always choose your largest measurement too. If a dress takes a 36 bust, 28 inch waist and 36 hips and you need a 38 bust, you need to go up a size (unless the dress has a LOT of stretch) for the dress to fit.
Use these three dressing tips to go shopping in stores, and be sure to feel femfabulous!

I have found a couple of stores to try things on. Old Navy and Maurices and the sales Lady will tell me what looks good on me. The stores that will let you try on womans clothes are out there. Do not be afraid to tell them it is for you. The first few times I went into Maurices I was afraid and the manager of the store noticed me in a few times and came up to me and asked if I was shopping for me or someone else and I told her for me. Now I have a great shopping for my clothes in those stores.
Great advice, Mandy!

Wonderful advice!!! Before I went out dressed as a woman to shop I went as a man. I found out about the size thing real fast! I found after I went out shopping dressed as a woman I got treated like a woman. Sales clerks just love money. I bought my first 3 wedding dresses in bridal salons. One was a local salon and I don’t remember the name, but the other two were Davids Bridal and Alfred Angelo. I was treated wonderfully in all the salons.
I act like I’m buying for a girl I act stupid calling things by the wrong name like baby dollys , attachment things “garter”I will even go as far as making a fake phone call to my “girl friend” sister from there I get those special orders no g-string getting special advice for string bikini panties. It makes it sound so real. Also ask for a gift receipt it doesn’t show pricing. Get the sizes from the sister phone call tell stories of past disaster purchases and say I have to do this right she bought you a golf club that was perfect so now you want to get her something that took some effort.
If your dealing with a experienced sales clerk eventually she’s going to figure out it’s for you normally buy the 3rd-4 th visit.
I’ve been able to feel comfortable at times just to admit by the 2nd visit that it’s for me and by the styles I pick out they don’t have to ask they know I’m a cocksucker. Trust me on this the type of lingerie you wear and the cuts tells the clerk what kind of girl you are I’ve even had some girls surprise me with a pair of their own panties added in the bag without telling me. On the next visit they might say so how did that panty work out for you? They love the stories on how their panties helped you perform.
This has worked for me so try it you might just find that new panty source
