I have that “guy” shape, almost cylindrical. I saw that you wear hip pads and on Amazon there are a gazillion types and prices. Do you have a type that you’d recommend to get a more feminine shape?
I also have that same shape as you and yes, I wear thigh pads from The Breast Form Store.
I didn’t think that I would ever be a forms/pads girl, but I am never, ever, going back. Of course, a girl doesn’t need to have curves or a certain shape to be a girl, but my God, I love the way I look.
I didn’t think that pads would make that much of a difference but look at the two photos below. Both dresses are form fitting but it’s obvious the changes thigh pads makes. You could read my review of my Jolie Thigh Pads here.
In addition to my shape, clothes fit different. In most cases they fit better. Most dresses and skirts were designed for someone with hips and my thigh pads do the trick. The only drawback, I suppose, is that tights and nylons have to work a little harder to fit as they need to accommodate the pads.
As you said, there are many options from Amazon available. Like makeup, you get what you pay for with pads and forms. Speaking frankly, pads are not cheap, but they are meant to last a very, very long time. I’ve had my thigh pads for over a year now and I wear them all the time and there’s been no sign of tearing or the adhesive diminishing. I’m sure there are cheaper options out there, but I believe in paying for quality. It goes back to one of my beliefs that creating your femme self takes money, patience, and time.
