Hello from Chicago (Berwyn) Illinois USA

Postby Denny » Fri Jan 04, 2019 9:33 pm

So glad to have found this site.
I'm a 73 year old widower who loves the style, colors, fabrics of women's clothing.
I've found that I can present as a man while wearing all women's clothes.
I get lots of compliments from both men and women.
I haven't had the courage to go out wearing a skirt, but that may come.

Welcome! You have landed on the best place on the net! I hardly believe you are 73, perhaps 37.

Thanks for the compliment! It made my day!

Maybe the clothes really do make the man!

Welcome!

As to wearing skirts in public, keep thinking about it but not too long.

Remarkably, the only person for whom it'd be a big deal is you.

That's a nice looking shirt but I think it would look better with a black skater skirt and black tights :lol: :lol: :lol: Welcome aboard.

Welcome, Denny, from rural Illinois (about 2 hours west of you on I-80). I wear skirts most anywhere but church (to please my wife; there'd be no problem) and the local weekly peace vigil (we look weird enough standing with signs on the street corner already). No hassles, rarely a second look. Courageously try wearing a skirt out once, find no problems, and it won't take much courage the next time.

I've got some skater skirts.
Seems every time I put one on (around the house) the back rides up and the front rides down. Big bootie in back and tummy in front!
That really irks my sends of style, and modesty too. Don't want to be flashing my underwear.

Welcome Denny, welcome to the site and your predicament as to frontal and rear protuberances certainly ain't unique. Try a longer skater skirt and braces [0]. You may need to wear a jumper or other top that goes over the braces and waistband of the skirt to hide the braces.

[0] I think that what we call braces are your suspenders and work for skirts too but you will need the type with a clip fastening.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

I do that with pants too. I'll give it a try.

I think this is why I prefer dresses, since they need no "braces".
Funny thing is, even with a dress, my booty often causes the dress to hang high in the back.

OK, but either a black utility kilt or a black knee-length pleated, skater, or pencil skirt would be better.
