If I am to elucidate the term cross-dressing, it is an act of blurring the lines of the aesthetic or the so-called biological gender, by putting on outfits conventionally worn by the opposite sex.
Here, it might so happen that a man can dress up in a way to resemble the looks and features of a woman. While women can also do the same, dressing up as a man. It can happen either way.
However, sometimes individuals opt for periodical cross-dressing simply, because they enjoy doing so. While sometimes, individuals identify themselves as member of the other gender- anything apart from their biological gender.
Even actors resort to cross-dressing for professional purposes. In the following article, I am going to focus on some of the best tips for crossdressing teens. Keep scrolling to know more on the same.
Some Of The Best Cross-Dressing Tips For 15-Year-Old Boys
In case you are wondering, there is no right way to cross-dress. What looks or sounds perfect to you may not work for someone else. For instance, the styling tips are different for a man cross-dressing as a woman, and vice versa.
Cross-dressing can be an extremely convoluted process. Transitioning and switching to another gender with the help of clothing is not as easy as it sounds, especially for teenage boys.
Therefore, here are a few tips that will help you for a better understanding and implementation of cross-dressing:
1. Start With Picking A Role Or A Character
This is the first and the most important step to cross-dressing. The secret to carrying out a male-to-female transition look effortlessly, depends on choosing the correct feminine body structure to imitate.
Most women are in possession of feminine curves, but all of them are different when it comes to presentation. The body structure of an actress will differ from that of a petite gymnast.
Similarly, the body structures of an old lady will be different from that of a voluptuous vamp. Therefore, it is always advisable to go for a feminine body structure that matches your body structure.
This will make your transition easier. For example, you can always refer to Marilyn Monroe, if you think you have the potential to emulate an hourglass figure.
2. Contouring The Face
Second, comes the facial features. Facial features depict a lot about gender, & the physical features are noticeably different between the two genders. If crossing dressing from a man to a woman, these are the primary features that you would want to consider:
- A higher cheekbone.
- A closer shave (not so much for teen boys, because the puberty effect is different for different people)
- A smaller chin.
- Larger eyes.
- Bigger lips, and
- Smaller nose.
Makeup can be an effective tool when contouring your face. With the evolution of makeup, women have realized that one can change their facial features completely, simply by using makeup products, in the correct way.
Creating a convincing illusion is the ultimate goal.
3. Work On Your Waist Area
Working on the waist area strictly implies focusing on achieving a narrower waistline, with the help of outfits. It is the contrast between the hips & the waistline, that promotes a feminine appeal.
There are plenty of corsets and waist-cinching undergarments available in the market, that can help you achieve that hourglass figure, artificially. Opting for padded underwear or silicone butt pads will also do the trick.
You can also opt for expensive undergarments options for the tucking and taping, based on your affordability. However, a cheap version of it can be achieved using some medical tape and a pair of panty hose.
4. Work On Accentuating The Bust Size
Starting from advertising industries, to apparel manufacturers, and cosmetic surgeries- each one of them have triggered the association of breasts or bust size with femininity. Bigger the better!
However, it is an undeniable truth. But if you are a teen boy, you do not really have to focus much on the size. Since most girls have just hit puberty and breasts do not take the same time to develop, for everyone.
Although, as per my responsibility I will still provide you will some tips to accentuate your bust size. Purchase a brassiere of your size (preferably a push-up one) and start stuffing it with socks and tissues-either of the two.
You can also opt for prosthetics for a more natural look.
5. Pick Dresses Fitting The Role
Again, always pick a dress that suits your figure. That will make you feel more confident. Pick a dress that’s ‘you’.
Always remember, you are your biggest critique. If you know that you were born to wear stilettoes, there is literally no one who can tell you otherwise. In fact, the first rule or best step to cross-dressing is- confidence.
