    It makes me really anxious whenever I'm buying something that people will think I'm a creep but I pushed through and got some really cute lacy underwear knee high socks, stocking and nail varnish. Even though I'm just wearing them with boy clothes on top it feels so good to be wearing gender affirming clothes I didn't have to 'borrow'

    I've never shopped for women's clothing in person for the same reason, but the first time I bought nail polish in a store I was so anxious about what people would think if they saw me. I don't think anyone even did, but I'm sure no one has ever been in and out of that section of the store so quickly lol.

    My therapist made me think about what the worst case scenario would be and how realistic it is that something bad would happen, if I would shop in the men's sections. I was very anxious about it, but once I did it, then it wasn't as bad as my brain made me think.

    You guys and gals got this. Don't let fear stop you.

    I picked out what I wanted before picking anything up then made a beeline for the items I picked out. Totally worth it but I wish I got a couple more things that were on sale.

    Well done Sammy1995 for buying the woman's clothing. I search the wholesalers web pages and then make a list of what I want and then go shopping. I do the shopping early in the morning as the shops open. The workers is still busy unpacking stock and the customers is a few

    Asking for assistances bring interesting looks from the workers, but they are very help full

    Ahahaha same I was wearing tights and underwear with a hoody and trousers today. Probably spent a little bit too much money but I was never interested in clothes shopping before I came out so I guess I've been going a bit crazy with it. Definitely helped boost my confidence going into multiple different stores only really got one or two dirty glances from customers which were far outweighed by the people who nice. I think maybe my nails gave me away a little.

    I’m lucky to have had my wife accompany me when buying women’s clothing mainly from second hand shops. She has slowly been encouraging me to shop alone. At first it was really daunting and scary. Admittedly I have been given strange looks, even when paying the cashier has given me horrific glances and huffing under her breath, but I bought the dresses and gave her a smile. . When shopping I do see if I can try on the garments before I buy. Going into the change room with an arm full of skirts and blouses does attract little attention. I don’t think many people care and just get on with their own lives. Arriving home I can try on and parade my collection with my wife being the judge, my hoping she approves and gives me the thumbs up that my woman’s fashion tastes are getting better. ❤️

    Most service workers I've met have actually been a lot more supportive than random strangers, I guess because they're trying to sell something but still I've had good experiences.

    I know Hun. Only admitted to myself I was.gay / trans at the end of November. I plucked
    up the courage to buy some women's clothes (what I now call sweetie clothes lol) from a few charity shops. I now wear sweetie clothes everyday. I wear them to the shops with coat and jeans on top. When I empty the rubbish out downstairs I wear my tight leggings. Neighbours have seen me in them. I don't care less. Next step is to wear full women's clothes to the shop

    I am relocating in a few days (two) to a new place. I promise myself that their I will be walking around in the complex and in the house as my true self wearing the correct gender cloths. I cannot wait to be the true me

    Sammy1995 I am proud of what you have done by wearing the correct gender cloths as it takes a lot from a person emotionally

    I have relocated and moved into my place its so unbelievable different feeling a place that I can call mine.
    Grass has been planted to bring more greenery in the garden.
    The atmosphere is so calm no hunting memories and I can walk around freely as me

    I hope that you can also experience or had the same experience the same

    Congratulations! It is a pretty awesome experience, some people can be a bit weird about it but the important thing is that you get to express yourself.
