    Time to clear out the closet of unused items

    Amazing how many clothing items you get when the pink fog hits. I've started going through my tops that I have. Many of them are spur of the moment purchases because they looked nice but have never worn for various reasons. And like any other man, I have that I might use it so don't get rid of it thinking.

    I had a spell of buying the same thing in different colours and then only wearing one of them.

    I have had an old bra clear-out, as I have rapidly progressed from a natural B to a D cup! I didn't realise how effective "my methods" would be.

    I sighed affectionately over a padded B cup plunge bra, whilst filling an unpadded D cup bralette! This old plunge bra was my only one which I could wear cross-strapped.

    Now I am bigger, I find under bust padding is uncomfortable, but I do like to wear nipple shields to avoid chafe and project my shape.


    I still like an underwire, though.

    Yeah i have been doing more less the same thing recently but for a different reason, Sometime I get things on o E-bay etc that really does not fit 100% properly but do do not throw it out or return it So I have been going through my things for this sort of thing. Some of it I donate to a local Salvation Army thrift store.

    have a plastic box full of Dresses and shoes that never did fit, etc. don't know what to do with them---no thrift stores near by. Too good to throw away, so I keep them.

    I don't have too much yet but I do have one started - an outfit I bought during one of my first pink fog attacks that just does not work for me, and a skirt that is just too big. It will go to my local thrift store, where I am known as a customer, probably as one of the guys that comes in and buys women's clothes. I know I'm in good company, perhaps these items will work for another one of our number.

    Many of the clothes are likely going back on the same racks at the thrift store I bought them from. But when you struggle find space in your closet, it's time to down size.

    What do u do when your dress size stretches from 8 to 28 and breasts from B to HH?

    And, what about the countless cute, sexy outfits that I have that r under size 8? Well, I have a dozen or so manikins and love dolls that they fit!

    The answer is: Rarely ever toss anything out!
    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!

    My wife and I just did a mini clean out. She's been buying a number of tops lately and we are close enough in size that we can share them. That means it's time for me to let go of some things that don't fit thanks to shrinkage or those that I rarely wear any longer. Salvation Army was the beneficiary of our donations.
    I don't wear women's clothes, I wear MY clothes !

    Perhaps its age or experience, but in recent years I have largely avoided impulsive buying, and focus on I know I can and will wear. Very title in my closet, at least in my feminine wardrobe, that goes unused. On the other hand, I have male clothes that haven?t been worn since the late 80s, which still seems oddly recent to me.

    I have been thinking about cleaning out two double closets full of clothes I never wear.
    75% of what I have doesn't fit any more.
    I have kept a lot of items thinking I can lose weight and fit in them again, but I doubt that will happen.

    If I would clear out my male closet of items I no longer wear, I'd have room for my femme clothing and not need to use the spare bedroom closet for it. I have only 1 dress I've retired with another likely to join it. They will go to the thrift store. Since I've only worn them at home a few times (less than 10 hours each) they will be like new dresses for someone.
    It's never too late to enjoy a happy childhood.
    Live each day as though it's your last 'cause one day you'll be right.
    I'm finding the more feminine side of me...and I ❤️ this adventure.

    I usually only wear a dress once unless I feel I had a bad photoshoot, then I'll save them for a second photo shoot.
    I bought and purged about 350 dresses the last four years.
    There's no way I could have kept and hidden that many dresses!
    "This is ME" I am not CRAZY, I'm just a GUY who likes dresses!
    Since allot of men dress up in woman's clothing that makes it a manly thing to do!
    Much more fun than fishing.
    I do construction like house building and I love CD-ing, what's the difference?

    We moved several months ago and that was a good opportunity for me (and my wife) to get rid of unused clothing. We both still have too many items and can't seem to resist buying more. I'm going to have to either put up more clothes racks or get rid of more stuff.

    I just hit the 3/4 century mark and the thought does go through my head about mortality and starting to preen my 162 dresses and way too many undergarments down to something manageable. I'm never going to wear all of my 162 dresses. Maybe, I should open my own thrift store in my rec room.

    Pretty female clothing in my size is so hard to find, that I no longer throw anything away (or put it in the salvation army clothing donation boxes). Unless it's something that doesn't fit right, it goes into storage for later re-evaluation. No sense throwing something out that I might have to buy again.

    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.

    3 large recycling bags taken to the second hand store. Definitely more room in my closet now.

    Took 4 big bags of clothes and one bag full of purses to Goodwill today.
    I will probably take some more to the consignment shop tomorrow.
    Closets are still semi full but things aren't jammed together like they were.
