    Thoughts and things

    So I have been bored and been flirting with bidding on stuff on Ebay. I have clicked a couple of things and have won Shaping Pantyhose, A Robe that may be too small. Panties and might be winning another robe soon.

    I keep on this tug of war of wanting to crossdress and not wanting to. Also, no one really to share any of this with other than here. Too shy to meet other crossdressers in the area.

    One of these days I would like to have a full makeover transformation. I will not do it in my home city though. Can anyone relate? Does anyone have any comments at all?

    My advice is to maximize your enjoyment. Don't waste your time, money & effort on things that aren't very much fun. How is punching the buttons on Ebay different from playing slot machines? Better to go into a shop and try on the clothes so you know you are getting something that fits. Interact with the salesladies--they love giving advice on fit and on how to buy things that work together in ensembles.

    More than likely every one of these ladies have started where you are. http://triessnewengland.org
    Give them a call. You could be talking and visiting with real people that can relate instead of typing your sorrows to a machine.

    I have purchased a lot of things on ebay, most recently come cute heart coach keychains, and ruffled panties in xl sizes, simply because they're cheaper there than at the square dance shops online. Also, I've found the feedback system on vendors is extremely helpful, as I haven't been burned on ebay yet (one vendor never delivered, and paypal refunded my money). Not to mention, the variety of stuff there. Just watch the vendor's feedback profile and you should be fine. Enjoy your shopping. As far as a makeover, there are usually places in all the major cities, but you'll have to ask people in the particular area you are going to for references.

    There's an addendum at post # 82 on that thread, too. It's about a ten minute read.
    Why don't we understand our desire to dress, behave and feel like a girl? Because from childhood, boys are told that the worst possible thing we can be, is a sissy. This feeling is so ingrained into our psyche, that we will suppress any thoughts that connect us to being or wanting to be feminine, even to the point of creating separate personalities to assign those female feelings into.

    I would never waste my time nor money on e-bay. Shopping in person is so much more fun! Just today I needed a new shirt and was doing fine until I noticed VF had a bra sale! You guessed it I just had to have a new push up! And believe a MAKE OVER IS SOOOO nice!

    Tri-ess has very strict guidelines, but it is a good place to start if you fall within those guidelines. If your gay forget about it, if your hetro and single forget about it, if your TS forget about it, if you are married or have a girlfriend your in. There website will explain all there rules. I am no fan of Tri-ess, but I do know that they have helped thousands of hetro CDs. So they do serve a good cause for some.

    Ebay? Yeah! For breast forms, corsets, etc. Stuff I KNOW will work and fit me!

    Otherwise, save your hard earned $$$, Bra! Wander thru your local Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc. Buy whatever suits u. Folks never give me a second look there. And, ALL I BUY r ladies things!

    The stuff's so cheap, if I don't like it, I give it back to them!
    U can't keep doing the same things over and over and expect to enjoy life to the max. When u try new things, even if they r out of your comfort zone, u may experience new excitement and growth that u never expected.

    Challenge yourself and pursue your passions! When your life clock runs out, you'll have few or NO REGRETS!

    Thanks ladies, I've been fairly successful with clothes fitting me on Ebay.

    Stephanie, thank you for the link! It looks helpful!

    As far as going to the stores, I am still way too shy for that. My thinking is what will they think? etc.

    I've bought tons of femme clothing on ebay and never got burned on a deal. Make sure you know your measurement requirements, and read the item descriptions carefully. Have fun!

    My pantyhose arrived today. They are tight tummy control with the rest sheer to toe. The sheer part is really comfortable while the shaper keeps me tuck.

    Ebay, no way! I want to shop for my girly things in person whenever possible. It's fun and the results are much better even if I'm alone as I do it. the sales people are seldom negative in any way. Enjoy it.
    warmly, Linnea
