The makeup was perfect.. The bra? Not so much….

Seeing J dressed in drag, with makeup applied better than I could have done, I realized, “he” at the time, did not need any help. (But if you do, for a “how to” watch the makeup video available on my Resources page in Videos.)

When it came to buying a bra, however, J was at a loss. (For a M2F trans pondering how to find the right one, go to my Resources page and look for the Video I have posted.)

As far as ‘where to go”, I suggest starting in major department stores such as JC Penny and Macy’s. These stores are usually well-equipped to fit most women with styles, from sports bras, to functional, sexy and pretty, in colors, fabrics, patterns, lace, underwires, and spandex. Choices, choices…and, at average pricing.

Sales women with years of experience are usually available, and will help you with sizing. Boutiques, and Victoria’s Secret are also options. I have found, however, that sizing in boutiques and at Victoria’s Secret may be different than the average bra store, and prices higher, so be prepared. Once you know your size, another good option can be Target for inexpensive bras. Bra prices can fluctuate anywhere from $12.00 to $85+.

  1. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video
    to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?

    1. Hi there!! I have set up the site and the video’s to try to give some information that might be helpful to people. Unfortunately, my concentrated effort now is on marketing my book, The Sky Turned Green & The Grass Turned Blue: Diane’s Story. In it, I talk more about what transition is like from a significant other’s point of view. The blog here is more an information spot, and I apologize but have not had a lot of time to re-new it as the book is taking my time. I do appreciate your input. Check the book out. It might answer questions.

  2. Thank you for your tips. I appreciate it. I wish I had more time to spend on the blog. I will take a look at your suggestions, though. THANK YOU! Diane

  3. THANK YOU! I hope what I have posted helps. I know I have been so busy trying to market the book that the blog posts have gone a bit unattended. But I think most are still relevant. Thank you for viewing! Diane

  4. Hi, back to you!! Thank you. I started using Blogger on Google, and when I got close to publishing my book, The Sky Turned Green & The Grass Turned Blue: Diane’s Story, I changed over to this Word Press venue. My son helps me with it, I am not very ‘technical’…but I hope that the information that I have managed to gather helps people. I liked using blogger personally as it was easy for me to do. Word Press is more difficult in my opinion, though everyone tells me that if I were to go on YouTube I could watch videos that would explain everything. I think I am ‘old school’… I don’t always think to look at the things out there. But that might be worthwhile. This blog is a work in progress I have to say. I wish you the best setting yours up. It takes time, for sure, but it can be fun. My best to you! D

  5. Awww. I can’t tell you how gratifying it is to me to hear you say this. It is my hope that what I post helps people. THANK YOU! for your comments. Please share your experience with the site if you can. I talk a lot more about my experience in my book, The Sky Turned Green & The Grass Turned Blue: Diane’s Story. AGAIN, thanks for viewing and your comments. Diane

    1. Thank you. I am new to blogging, and don’t have a lot of time — but I have tried to put information on the site that might be helpful. D

  6. An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I do think that you ought to write more about this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but usually folks don’t discuss these subjects. To the next! All the best!!

  7. I think this is one of the most important information for
    me. And i am glad reading your article. But wanna remark on some general things, The website style
    is perfect, the articles is really great : D.
    Good job, cheers

  8. When someone writes an paragraph he/she retains the image of a user in his/her brain that how a user can understand it.
    So that’s why this post is amazing. Thanks!
