It's kinda hard to tell with all the dark colors, but I don't think you have anything to worry about. =3

www.transformation.co.uk

A European website with a great online catalog, catering specifically to the TG crowd. Which means, breast forms!

I went to check that site.

IF you believe those pics are of real prosthesis, AND you are willing to pay that much to find out if it's true... then, by all means, don't let me stop you.

I'm currently trying to work out a deal with a supplier of silicone enhancers for my store, hoping to bring them for around U$40 or less. The foam enhancers should come out for under $10.

Look closely and you can see the point at which the breast form joins the skin.

A little of both

First of all, I was blessed with some natural hip-age... not a ton, but enough I don't bother to add to them. Drives girls nuts too.

That said, I have seen where victoria's secret sells in their catalog a padded undergarment with removable pads on the sides and back. if you have the bucks, it might be a place to go. Otherwise, if you can get an old foam mattress or even one of those hospital blue foam eggcrate pads, you could try to trim out your own padding. Luckily a Victorias Secret catalog is free, you could use the photo there to model what you make on. It's hard though to cut the foam rounded... if I was really going to do it I'd wear some kind of mask and use a hot wire foam cutter like the model railroad guys use to cut insulation foam for scenery (I am sure it would stink and possibly be toxic, so kids dont try this one at home).

You might even cheat, especially if you're a smaller person, and use a larger set of the sewing shop shoulder pads intended to be used in womens shirts. Tucked into pantyhose they might work okay for you.


For the waist, a corset is ideal but you can also try an inexpensive waist cincher from one of the discount department stores; I used to use one from K-mart that cost about $17 and has a row of hooks down the front. They're not great but ok for occasional use - get it a couple sizes smaller than the size chart says. They come in white and black usually too, sometimes tan. Expect to replace it once in a while if you wear it a lot - I wore one twice a week and after about a year some of the boning had broken so I got another. A longer one is better if possible. If you're using pantyhose, try a control top about a size smaller than the box says you should wear - I cut them off the legs when the legs get runs (they all do eventually) then can use hose that are larger and a little more forgiving to the snags.


If you're really serious, you can train your body with a corset or cincher until you slim your waist down and then can get away without it. That might be what happened to me, even. I would suggest researching it more on a transgender related site, though, and here again it could be dangerous, so be careful.

check out classic curves at www.clcrv.com You will pay a lot for the garment to make your rear and hips larger, but these are custom made using your measurements then a computer generated model is made and the garment is made from that. Like I said, they are pricey, but they are about as authentic as you can get if you are uber serious about looking the part.

Getting that "shape"

Hi! Corsets work wonders if you wear them correctly. If you wear them too tightly they can be dangerous, just make sure you can breath normally without struggling..thats a good way to judge if its fitting properly. Another thing... my crossplay costumes almost always involve full puffy skirts. A skirt that is pouffed out with one or more petticoats under it gives an illusion of a slimmer waist and curvier hips! Esp if the skirt is cinched in at the waist with a sash, tie or belt.

Does anyone know of any place that sells not-so-expensive corsets? I cannot spend $200 on one.

Here's what I use and it works great! Just it'll show under anything snug you might want to wear. I'm still searching for an invisible/seamless waist cincher.

It does work, as you can see in the pic.

Good luck
