Christmas in Women’s Underwear, Part Two

I mentioned buying a new waist cincher last week. Katherine and Marie wanted to know the brand and model I bought because, as Katherine remarked, if “it really gives you the right shape and it might be the one I am looking for.”

It's Maidenform's Waist Nipper, Style #M6868. Here is where I bought it. It is no longer selling at its Cyber Monday price of $16, but it is selling at a substantial discount on Amazon ($20.73).

By the way, I have now lost 14 pounds and may have to order a smaller size real soon now!


As a youngster, I was in awe of the Frederick’s of Hollywood advertisements. I wanted to look like the women appearing in those ads, so it comes as no surprise that I purchased my first wig, bra and waist cincher at a Frederick’s of Hollywood store.

Eve T., “I am a long-time reader (and crossdresser!), and you were kind enough to post a photo or two in the past. I live in Portland, Maine, 67 years young, married long time (she’s my hair stylist and makeup consultant!), grandparent, retired. I have been to conferences, meetings, fashion shows, dinners with friends and family. I contribute often financially to gender causes as generously as I can. I have been dressing for 65 years, and oh! the changes I’ve seen over the years. It is getting better in the “trans” world. Positive changes will happen over time. Social enlightenment occurs very slowly, but inevitably. The young today are beautiful, the future belongs to them. Do the right thing, lead by example, smile and be happy! (Sorry for the proselytizing bloviation!! I cant help it, I’m happy!)

    Oh the the changes we have seen, the highly secret meetings for support groups. Communication thru post office boxes,wig shops and clothing stores that didn't welcome us.

    Today, younger trans folk have options we didn't have. I subscribe to subs on reddit which are dominated by younger folks and so many are coming out in high school and college, so many have their parents support. (Many do not).

    Colleges and High Schools at least now recognize and try to help trans students.

    Gosh going into a women's clothing store now I never even get a raise eyebrow when shopping for myself

    yes it has change we have to go further but I'm enjoying it

    BTW you I love your hair you are very pretty
