Clothing, Gender and Sex

Pink Kitty Pink Kitty
Ok so see above post of mine. I completely HATE mens clothing, as I said there is not a wide variety of style. It seems for men the only actual styles are boot cut or straight. Skinny I consider unisex, and I cant get in skinny anyhow it makes me look fat and I am only 56.75 kilograms (roughly about 125-126 lbs).

Now womens, yeah they have bootcut jeans BUT! They are more comfortable. They are not as relaxed in the waist, mens however are.

My dad wants me to ALWAYS wear MENS BOOTCUT JEANS. He says this "Men should wear Mens Levi's Bootcut jeans, and mens working boots."

Now he tells me to wear a belt, but lucky me, most all belts are WAY too large for me.

PLUS! There is NOTHING better than wearing a dress that comes just above the knees on a nice hot summer day!

I also see it as a form of individuality. I mean everyone has their own styles, just because I am a crossdresser, does that make me weird, creepy, wrong or a pedophile? Yes I have been called a pedophile on the basis that I crossdress.

Weird and creepy, I may be. Creepy because I am goth. Weird... would I rather be normal and boring? But a pedophile just because I refuse to wear clothes of my sex of child? I did that for 19- 20 years of my life, I hated it. I wasted my own unique individuality. I was too afraid to express myself.

So Crossdressers out there. Get your panties and faces on girls!

I prefer looking very feminine, AND men's clothing isn't exactly cut to accommodate an hourglass figure. I'm not against it, it just doesn't suit me.

I wear primarily feminine clothing most of the time, although I am slowly allowing myself to have my mixed gender wardrobe again, which my mother fought so hard against when I was young.

I HATE 90% of women's clothing.
1. They're cheaply made. Most articles of clothing I own from the women's section has some sort of defect. While shopping, I often have to disappointedly put a shirt or jacket back on the rack because it's falling apart before even being worn. In my experience, there are only 2 categories of women's clothing: Cheap and overpriced. There is seemingly no middle ground.

2. The designs are often impractical. I've seen so many zip up hoodies where the zipper stops 6 inches under the collar bone. Is this supposed to keep me warm?? Every fall I'm puzzled by the endless amount of otherwise warm comfy jackets and coats where the waist is up to half the length of the sleeves. It's almost a contest with women's fashion designers to see who can turn the simplest designs into ridiculous unwearable pieces of crap.

Men's clothing is much better in these areas. My only problem with them is that my body is small and curvy. I don't fit most men's clothing unfortunately. If I were a few inches taller or more boxy, I would definitely wear exclusively men's clothing.

I have to say I'm one of the lucky ones as well: I'm fairly young, of average female height, and average weight, yet it is still difficult for me to find good looking, well fitting, practical clothing.

For now I'm happy just shopping on both sides of all stores. Variety is the spice of life.

I wear unisex or male clothing although I do own female clothing (from those moments of panic/need to fit in and be feminine purchases) however I feel more comfortable and confident in male clothing. I like that it's loose, it doesn't hug, it covers and the styles. I particularly love blazers and suits though I own no suits and only one blazer.
I just prefer male clothing, or those clothing cuts/styles that could go either way and isn't really geared toward one gender.

Womens/female clothing makes me... uncomfortable. I constantly tug at it and readjust parts and just kinda feel... weird. Although there are some things, such as business attire; slacks, button downs, blazer etc. that I do feel confident and okay in but this is again, almost gender neutral clothing. I also really really don't like all the uhhh skin showing cuts of women's clothing. |: Super short-shorts and stringy tops that barely cover anything... I mean all for showing skin, go people who like to but it personally makes me uncomfortable because there are parts of my body I don't like people looking at or taking notice of.

I don't really go for making a fashion statement so much as being comfortable but I do prefer certain color combinations. Blue,white,gray,black together. Red,white,gray,black. Green,white,gray,black etcetc or just plain solid colors without unnecessary frills and designs and areas that hung against the body or the rumpled parts etc.

Those nifty little sections you walk into in clothing stores that are sharply designated by design, cut, print and labels of clothing.

I'm a cis hetero female and I would love to wear girly clothes all the time, but I have trouble finding things that fit, so usually I'm stuck with gender-neutral stuff.

Pansexual transman. I wear every clothes that fits (well, some that don't, more often than I'd like to) and looks great.
Clothes being gendered somehow makes me dysphoric, though, there had been a great article on that in the latest Worn!

I wear my husbands clothes sometimes. I'm also 6' and not small, so it's probably easier for me. But I shop for my own gender.

The only clothing I wear that can be considered men's is t-shirts, certain shoes (Converse for example), and the occasional pair of boxer briefs. My partner, however, wears a fair amount of men's clothing (particularly polos and sweaters), and they look really good on her.

Ties on girls= hot I can't pull off a tie personally, but it's so cute!

Well, I'm not really entirely female. I mean, it's not a label I really feel comfortable with. And I'm pan, which isn't a choice up there. So, I dunno, here the best way to express it I'm a femme glittery sort of person who sometimes wears femmer glittery men's clothes. Men's vests are awesome.

I said women's clothing but sometimes I wear men's. It's just not often enough for me to say both. Occasionally I wear a men's button down open with a t-shirt underneath, or something like that, but that's once every few weeks. Most of the time I wear dresses.
