How to create a feminine body from a male form

If you're one of those thin, feminine girls with the perfect basis of which to start as a woman - well - I hate you!!! *Laugh* 

I had one of those bodies most guys prefer: my form responded rapidly with muscle growth from all forms of exercise. Alas, that's not exactly ideal for female development.

I came up with a workout regimen when I was part-time that was ideally suited for both Miss Reyes and my male self. I called it my "Renee Routine". I still use the same exercises today - “post transition” with great success.

Male to Female Body Change

MTF Body Change: Starting Out



Before undertaking any exercise, it's very important to stretch first. Stretching offers so many benefits. It elongates muscles, prevents injury, pumps blood into the areas you will be working - and helps you move better on the dance floor! Take 5 minutes before each exercise ritual and stretch well.

The very first thing you'll want to do is record all your current measurements and weight. Sometimes we can't visually see all the progress we're making - but the numbers won't lie to you. The tape measure and scales can become your personal cheer leader if you'll let them in the game.

If you'll stick to an exercise program for just three weeks - I promise you'll start to see results. The key is developing the exercise
habit. If you miss a few days? Don't let that be an excuse to drop your program. Let it be your motivation to start anew.

Here I'm going to show you how to:

  • Develop a feminine chest through "exercise"
  • Tightening your tummy
  • Building nice legs & "a behind"

chest development - 2 - 3 days a week

It is difficult to achieve a tight, feminine body, without affecting your male appearance. In no area is this more challenging than in the development of one's chest. I worked hard to identify an exercise routine that would make my chest look better in a bra - and still look "masculine" - when I go to the beach as a guy.

Pullovers - a girls best friend

When a personal trainer is working with a genetic female on her chest development, he will often focus on upper chest development to provide fullness to the breasts. Since we're a little light in that department, we want to focus on growing the lower area - to give us something to fill that Wonderbra. *Smile*

stretch-3

I want to clarify something in this department based upon letters I've received: we are not growing breasts with these exercises. Rather - we're designing a chest - that will look very feminine in a bra. Such a chest will be tight - but not thick.  
 
I only do one weight related exercise in the chest department - pullovers. If you only have the time (or motivation) to do one form of exercise -
this is the one for you!

They have a great effect - in that they stretch all your upper body muscles - build your chest in a more feminine manner, and they even work your love handles - all with very little arm growth! Nice combo! ::)) 

By
not focusing on the development of your bicep - but still getting exercise in your upper arm - you'll find your arms burn off fat, retain strength - and slim down to a more feminine appearance. 
pullover exercise -1

The "bonus" comes from the fact this exercise tends to stretch and exercise your lower chin (reducing that double chin look. I know of no exercise more effective for this problem. Could you ask for anything more?

I use light weight, (20-30 pounds), high repetition (20-25) pullovers. You will need access to a workout bench and a dumbbell to perform this exercise. Tips on neck, lower bottom as lower weight to add stretch and resistance. 

female chest exercise

Begin with the dumbbell held over your head. Don't just bend your arms much - we're not trying to build our triceps. Rather, keep a slight arm bend and let your chest and back hold the weight. 

Slowly lower it behind your head. Be sure and keep your behind low - to enhance the stretch. It will naturally want to move upward, with the backward movement of the dumbbell. I actually push mine even further down as the dumbbell reaches it's lowest point to improve the stretching sensation. 

pullover bodybuilding-3

When you raise the dumbbell back over your head, try to pull with your chest and back - not your arms. When you've tried it awhile, you'll understand better what I mean.

Another tip: as you get adept at this movement, try lowering your behind a bit as the weight is almost fully extended behind your head. This will offer further resistance to tighten those love handles. and our tummy. Also, try to keep a bit of "strain" on your neck below your chin as you exercise. This will happen somewhat automatically during pullovers - but remain "conscious" of keeping it going. It will result in a slimmer face over time.

The key to
both these exercises is proper breathing. On the flyes, you breath in as deeply as possible - when you extend your arms outward. You exhale fully - when you bring them back together in the front. With pullovers, you breath in deeply as the weight is being lowered behind your head, and exhale as you are bringing it back up. This breathing - will improve the stretch - from both exercise. ((hugs))

Weightless Flyes
flyes-1

Flyes are typically an exercise bodybuilders use to enhance the outer portion of their chest. They lie on a bench, using dumbbells to provide tension, and extend their arms to build outer chest mass. I found a movement that gets similar results, without the bulking up.

flyes-2

This exercise will develop the outer portion of your chest. Along the way, you'll get a nice firm set of tissue to help with that cleavage - we all love so much. 

Just don't go too far - I don't want to be jealous of your tit's if we ever meet. *Smile*

flyes-3

Begin with your arms crossed in front of your body. Slowing bring them as far back as you can reach - like you would for one of those really big yawns. 

Hold that stretch for about 3 seconds, and slowly bring your arms back across your front. As you bring your arms back to your front, flex your stomach, your arms, and your chest - as tightly as you can. Hold this position for about 3 seconds. 

Repeat this procedure until you can do 25 in a row. That's a good target to maintain and will give you the look you're after.

Arms
I've only got one recommendation for the workout of your arms: don't. Between the pullovers you'll do for your chest, the stretching you'll do with the flyes, and your everyday activities - you'll want no further development. ((hugs))

abdominal development - daily

Let's face it, if you want to look fem - you've got to try and make sure your tummy is flat as possible. 
abroll2

Why is this so important to a t-girl? Simple. We don't have a GG's naturally wide hips to offset any extra room in our waist. With a flat tummy - you're just a girl with narrow hips. With a belly, you will look like a guy.

To accomplish this task, I bought an ab roller. Although I'm not into gimmicks - I must admit - they
really work!! What makes them extra special is that you can turn sideways and work off those love handles. All this without straining your neck.

Be sure to review the pamphlet included with your device carefully, and follow the suggested routine.

The
key to flattening your tummy is daily workouts. Unlike the chest, the abdomen gets worked all day, (even as you eat) and needs more "constant" exercise - to get results.

I do my abs first these days - as I find that I get a better stretch in my pullovers if my stomach is already tight from exercise. 

Incidentally, workouts don't have to be boring! Spice them up on occasion with some lingerie. It will certainly motivate you to work that much harder. *Smile*

legs

legs and "behinds" - 3 days a week

This is the only department we often start on decent fem footing. Most women drool over our legs when they see us en fem. Unfortunately, I ended my football career from a shattered ankle, which still gives me problems. Thus, running is out for me. I used to despise walking: seemed so boring. However, the iPod changed all that. I created the perfect mix of songs to accompany my daily route: adjust the timing of various tunes to match the tough hills and straightaways. One important tip to keep in mind with a rigorous walking program? Work the muscles as you stride: tighten the buttocks with each step, etc. I also usually do my daily walk with a pair of weighted boxing training gloves and work my upper body with constant twists along the way. This combination results in much better exercise & calorie burning.

Well - that's it. That wasn't so bad - was it? *Smile* 

I hope you find these tips helpful to your feminine development - and better health! ((hugs)



Fashion styles thatdon’t” work for trans women and alternatives that “do”

If wearing shorter skirts, junior styles, flashy outfits, lots of skin or cleavage and many accessories is
your thing? You’re not alone. Almost every new trans-women is drawn to one or all of these styles when she first goes full time.
Short Skirt Looks that Work

Unfortunately, these styles usually aren’t very functional in your new gender. Wearing them draws unwanted attention, gets you read quickly and often makes you an outcast amongst born-women at a time when you desperately need to develop close female associations.

The good news?

There’s always more than one way to skin a cat. Here we’ll revisit common fashion faux pas - and provide you alternatives that will work just as well.

Sound like fun?

Lets get to it!

What Doesn’t Work: Too short of a skirt
Leggings vs. short skirt

Lots of transgender women have killer legs - particularly by female standards. However, showin
g too much of those nice legs at anything other than a tranny bar will get you read in a hurry and make you a fashion outcast amongst born-women. If your over forty-years-old? About the only way you can effectively pull off that look is when its coupled with a very classy longer blazer.

Alternative solutions that Work Just as Well

I already mentioned pairing your short skirt with a fine blazer. Your other options include:

Leggings
Uneven Hem

Fitted leggings will show off a nice pair of legs almost as well as bare skin but without all the splash. They also help mask excessive muscle-tone: a challenge faced by some transgender women.

Leggings are an essential component of many fashion-conscious trans-women’s wardrobe.

Uneven Hem Dress
We Love Leggings

Another option for killer gams is an uneven hem dress. While you’re actually showing just as much leg in the front, it’s usually covered in the rear and is considered more socially acceptable.
I
love uneven hem dresses. They offer a delicious combination of class plus sass!


What Doesn’t Work: Low-Rise Jeans

Unless you had some hip and buttocks augmentation, you’ll probably want to steer clear of low-rise jeans. They tend to quickly illuminate the lack of a female hip bone. Also, if you’re a mature woman - they illuminate a straight-line hip area. That only flies as female for younger girls.
Low Rise Jeans on Transgender Women

I did get hips & buttocks augmentation and I still can’t effectively pull off a classic low rise look unless I add some belts and trim to the equation.

I’ve only seen a handful of augmented and very thin trans-women who can do this look without help.

And BTW? I
hate those women! :)

Alternative solutions that Work Just as Well
High Waist Jeans

When it comes to jeans, you’ll do better with lycra-infused high waist jeans. We don’t want that “mom jeans” look of a loose fit pulled up high on the waist & held tightly with a waist belt. Rather, we want a fitted look made popular by NYDJ: Not Your Daughter’s Jeans - coupled with either some hip pads and / or low rise belts or wraps to visually thicken the hip and ass area.

What Doesn’t Work: Wearing Runway Looks in Run-of-the-Mill Life
Nobody enjoys wearing Runway as much as your truly? I love hats and lots of fun trim. Unfortunately, even in large metro areas like Atlanta - such looks are too much for almost any event or locale. If I wear them? It screams tranny!
Suburbs Runway

Alternative solutions that Work Just as Well
Leave off the hat, animal skin and silk head scarf. Try putting together combinations that combine clever color mixes with black and white or related complimentary tones.

My favorite inspirational source in this regard was often Boston Proper catalogs. Their unique fashion combos were always flashy and clever by any standard - but not over the top. That’s the sweet spot we’re looking for!

What Doesn’t Work: Wearing Tranny Gear
Too Much for Mainstream

I must admit: it was sad day when I finally retired my six-inch heels. I grew up in the crazy clubs that represented transgender life before my transition and when trans-expression was far less acceptable.

To this day, some transgender women struggle not wearing those ultra high heels are crazy outfits. They were perfect then: don’t work now.
Cosplay Fun

Alternative solutions that Work Just as Well

Want to get away with wearing your most insane combinations? Get into Cosplay! It’s the rage for wearing crazy outfits and corsetry in public. It’s literally: DRAG - for straight people. Every major city has various Cosplay events throughout the year. Even smaller municipalities are building a following.

It’s a great way to meet new friends and continue to get good use from your arsenal of hot gear.

What Doesn’t Work: Too much cleavage on display

Just got new breast implants? If your like I was: you’re literally
dying to show off that new cleavage. When I first got mine? Almost everything I wore was cut to the bone - or in this case: the breast.
Too Much Skin

This isn’t just a trans-issue. Almost every woman that first gets implants is a little too aggressive in sharing those glands with the world around her. HOwever, those women don’t also face issues with being transsexual.

Alternative solutions that Work Just as Well
Too Much Cleavage

You can share your substantial new cleavage without showing half your breasts. Just bring it down a notch: the effect will be just as strong but you won’t get those nasty stares from wives and girlfriends.
