The Future is Inclusive

These are the words at the top of page for Zhe, a new line of lingerie for transwomen.

Zhe was founded by designer Karyn Elizabeth and, according to their website, is a lingerie brand designed with the fit and function needs of the TGNC community. Our lingerie was designed to address the specific needs of transgender women and femme identifying people.

I was given the privilege of reviewing Zhe’s Wicked panty recently. My first impression of opening the package was saying “cute, cute, CUTE” out loud. The front of the panty is deigned to minimize our feminine flaw, but it’s not the same as a gaff. A gaff helps girls like us TUCK, this amazing panty compresses and minimizes our frontal anatomy thanks to the multi layer mesh lining. I wore them all day and never, ever had to adjust. They were comfortable and effective, if you know what I mean. 😉 The back is super cute with a beautiful and playful lacy pattern. I couldn’t stop checking myself out, lol.

The lingerie was, from their website, designed with a wider gusset and also include a supportive multi layered front panel. Our medical grade power mesh is soft and luxurious, while also having a high spandex content to help with smoothing and support where necessary.

Is this panty a substitute for tucking? Yes, if you find tucking uncomfortable. But since the gusset is wide than most panties I was able to tuck comfortably however I think the mesh is incredibly effective when it come to smooooothing and suppressing. Bottom line is I don’t think I need to tuck when I am wearing this.

This is a cute panty and like the best lingerie, it is sexy and practical and I am excited that Zhe exists, and I am excited to have this pair in my wardrobe.

Thank you to Zhe for being a supportive resource for girls like us, and for providing this cute panty for review.

Lingerie for Men – Does it Matter?

It used to be that buying lingerie was always a complete shot in the dark.  I would see something cute and have no idea if it would fit or not.  But as I’ve said in the past, crossdressing takes time, money, and patience.  As time passed I became smarter about my body and took my measurements.

I began to understandthe differences between a medium for cismen and a medium for ciswomen.  I learned to buy lingerie for the size I was, not the size I thought I was (or wanted to be).  I also became smarter about checking things like the gusset to make sure it was, well, wide enough to cover my, ah, feminine flaw.


I heart lingerie so much.  It was the first femme clothing I was enthralled with all those years ago.  Even today it’s a way I can be connected to my femme side when I am in male mode.  Wearing a matching bra and panty (and garter belt and stockings!) under a suit is a wonderful way to get through a MAN DAY, if you follow. 


Lingerie can be expensive and usually can’t be tried on (or returned) so it can usually be a risk to drop money on a cute set and praying that it fits.  Luckily there are options for a girl like us.  Google “lingerie for men” and you’ll find many options from Xdress, Homme Mystere, Moot, Glamour Boutique, The Breast Form Store, and En Femme.

All of these businesses sell lingerie for girls like us.  Wider gussets, a larger selection of sizes, and bras that have pocket inserts for breast forms.  Twenty year old me would have been blown away by the options we have now.  I still am.


Some might say that lingerie designed to fit men misses the point.  And yes, I can see that and to some degree I agree.  But at the end of the day (actually, at the start of the day), I want panties that fit.  There’s nothing really more frustrating or uncomfortable than, well, falling out of your panties as you go through your day.  Most of the panties I wear are “for girls” but I have quite a bit of panties and lingerie made for girls (and boys) like us.  

Panties from Moot Lingerie. Does it matter that they are “for men”?


“Panties for men” tend to be more expensive, of course.  When I shopped at Victoria’s Secret it was so easy to add to my panty drawer(s) with their 5 panties for $30 sales.  Shopping at Xdress or any of the other designers I mentioned can be a bit of a sticker shock if you are used to shopping at the mall for panties.  Bear in mind that these designers are very much catering to a niche market, are independent businesses, and don’t have the ability to compete with Victoria’s Secret in terms of volume or price point.  I believe in supporting small businesses and I happily order (and wear) lingerie from independent designers.  Another reason I like shopping with designers who make lingerie for girls like us is that, well, it’s super cute and super femme.  The designers seem to know what I want not only in terms of practicality but also in terms of style and look.  It’s easy to find panties from Homme Mystere with bows and lace on them.  

What do you think? Do you care if you lingerie is designed for someone like us?

Another Review Preview!

This is the second outfit I wore for a review I am doing for The Breast Form Store. After my first lingerie shoot I wasn’t sure I would do another, but I thought this cute set would be perfect for the review. My first lingerie shoot was filled with mixed emotions but I was happy to realize that this time all those nervous butterflies and negative thoughts were gone.

I hope you like these pictures!

Moot Lingerie Review

Although I don’t shop at Victoria’s Secret anymore, I still have a lot of panties from them that I wear.  The quality is, well, fine, I suppose.  Although they are cute I don’t expect tooooo much out of panties that are sometimes 10 pairs for $30 or whatever.  When I compare them to panties and lingerie I get from say, Allure, then the difference in quality becomes more noticeable.  There’s also a quality difference between a $50 corset and my Glamorous Corset.  Before I owned my current corset I thought they were, well, overrated.  I didn’t see the (practical) benefit from wearing one.  And yes, as sexy as they are, there is a practical side to a corset.  But my corset from Glamorous Corset?  Oh my goodness.  Quality and sexiness.

My point is that, for the most part, you get what you pay for when it comes to lingerie (and makeup).  Although my purse would prefer I purchase a $5 pair of panties from Target, my body appreciates the panties that I spent $30 on.  Again, crossdressing takes patience, time, and money.  I feel that there is a benefit in investing in this side of me.  

When I first heard about Moot, I fell in love with their designs.  Moot is a newish lingerie designer for crossdressers and girls like us.  Their designs not only fit someone like us, but their designs are, in my opinion, what I want in my lingerie and panty drawer… what I mean is their lingerie is super cute and super feminine.  I loved their designs but I was taken aback by the price.  Moot isn’t Victoria’s Secret when it comes to price. 

To their credit, Moot acknowledges that.  They pride themselves on quality and after being sent some items to review, I have to say that they’re right.  Moot lingerie is super cute, and the quality is on another level.

Each item is handmade in England using materials that are ethically sourced.  I know this doesn’t matter to everyone but, well, it matters to me.  As I get older I make more of an effort to shop local, buy from independent businesses, and eat at non-chain restaurants.  Moot aligns with my values perfectly.  

But the lingerie… how is it?  The quality is the first thing I noticed.  The panties I was sent to review didn’t feel or look cheap. They felt luxurious.  A perfect combination of lace and mesh and small details.  One pair (The Quentin) is sexy and comfortable (which is what I want from lingerie). 

The front holds my feminine flaw perfectly and the cut open detail in the back is alluring and flirty. 

My favorite pair is the Floral Brief.  This is transparent lace and the back is, well, tiny, but it fits like a dream.  Both panties are welcome additions to my lingerie drawer(s).  I suppose at this point I need a lingerie closet.

Moot isn’t cheap, and they pride themselves on not being cheap. Their pride is well deserved and the quality is truly second to none.  Moot is what I want to find when it comes to my lingerie… ethically sourced, handmade, feminine, comfortable, and sexy.


Thank you to Moot for providing these panties.  I heart them.

Alluring T-Girls!

Saturday was the monthly MN T-Girls outing and we enjoyed a night at Allure, an upscale lingerie store for a private shopping party.

This was our third event at Allure and like the previous events the girls had an opportunity to get a bra fitting as well as shop for beautiful lingerie in a safe and supportive store.

I heart my new panties and lingerie and I”m sure you’ll find something there that you like, too!

Lingerie in Lilac

There are certain colors that are.. “off limits” for boys. Pink, that’s a significant one, but there are others. Like lilac. Sure men might wear a lilac dress shirt, but it’s a light purple shirt, thank you very much.

But come on, it’s lilac.

And I heart lilac.

I mean, it’s a beautiful flower and it smells lovely, but the color is so feminine.

I got to thinking about this when I was sent some beautiful lingerie from The Breast Form Store for my recent lingerie shoot.

The bra has all my favorite details, a feminine pattern around the mesh cups, a tiny bow in the middle. The bra sparkles with a touch of glitter. And! It’s a pocket bra for your forms. But with or without forms this bra is sexy and innocent.

The matching panty is super cute and while I don’t normally like boy-short type panties, I really liked this pair. It’s designed to be worn over a gaff (which is helpful when it comes to boy-shorts) but tucking is also comfortable with this panty.

And the back is lacy and seductive.

I hope you like these photos! I do realize that the color of this set is actually lavender (according to the website), I just think lilac is more femme. 🙂

The Allure of Lingerie

I buy my lingerie from a few different places online but the only lingerie boutique I frequent regularly (though not regularly enough) Is Allure. Allure has different locations throughout the country and are very accommodating to girls like us. In fact, I had a bra fitting there!

Allure hosts private shopping events and the MN T-Girls have had two wonderful nights shopping for lingerie.

I bought this set on my last visit and I knew I had to wear it for my lingerie shoot last month. I hope you like these pictures!

A Perfect Balance

I have always been fascinated and enamored with corsets. Sexy, beautiful, elaborate, little details… I’ve owned a few in my life but it wasn’t until I started to wear a proper one from Glamorous Corset.

I didn’t really understand or appreciate the difference a quality, real corset can make. How much work it takes to get used to a proper one, and the correct way to wear one. It requires discipline and patience. As I seasoned my corset I realized that as sexy as corsets are, they are also versatile. A perfect balance of beauty and practicality.

When I worked up the courage to do a lingerie shoot, I knew I had to wear my corset. I feel these shots capture beauty, power, and vulnerability.

I do hope you like them.

Love, Hannah
