Recently, I received the following request: While looking at your pictures, I noticed cleavage. Could you do a post on how to achieve it? I've tried but it never works for me. Thank you so much.

Up front (pun intended), I want to be clear that your mileage may vary because breast-wise I am naturally well-endowed for a male. I won't go into the reasons why I have feminine breasts because I don't know for sure myself, but I assure you that my girls fill a B-cup (and as a trans-girl, I could not be happier about those circumstances).

In the past, I used surgical tape to tape my breasts together and added makeup to create cleavage. It was very effective, but removing the tape was very painful and usually resulted in skin abrasions and minor bleeding that took days or weeks to heal.

I now use a painless method to create cleavage, which is just as effective. The key to my painless method is my bra, a Victoria's Secret Bombshell push-up bra. Victoria claims it adds two cup sizes and it is heavily padded to accomplish that feat.

The bra alone does not provide me with cleavage. I add breast forms to the mix, as follows:

I insert a breast form into a bra cup with one hand, lift my breast with the other hand and place the form under my uplifted breast. The uplifted breasts create the cleavage and the heavy padding of the Bombshell bra holds everything in place just like the surgical tape had done so in the past.

I have gone whole evenings without my breasts moving out of place, but if there ever is any slippage, I can quickly lift my breast(s) back in place when I have a private moment (like in a stall of the ladies' room).

After my breasts are in place, I add makeup, applying two shades of bronzer or powder. A dark shade adds depth to the shadows of the cleavage and a light shade enhances the front of the breasts to make them look more outstanding.

I apply the darker shade in the space between my breasts and sweep the powder upward and outward, creating a V-shape along the natural curve of the breasts, then I blend the powder until it looks like a shadow and not a strip of powder.

A little goes a long way, so don’t overdue it. You can always add more dark powder if needed; removing it is more difficult.

I apply the lighter shade to the front of my breasts and blend it back towards, but not all the way to the dark shade.

By the way, I made my own breast forms using a female impersonator's recipe: birdseed in a sock. (I actually used dried green peas instead of birdseed.)

1.  Use birdseed/dried green peas to fill a thin sock (not a thick heavy sock) to the cup size you desire.

2.  Tie off the sock as close as possible to the ball of birdseed/dried green peas.

3.  Trim off any access sock and fold the remainder over the knot. Under a bra, the knot does a good job of emulating a nipple.

By the way, I made my breast forms about 35 years ago and they are still good to go today.

If you have any questions, I will gladly try to answer them. In the meantime, practice, practice practice and your fine work will proceed you.

Need advice concerning femulating or other crossdressing-related matters, then e-mail me and I will happily give you my opinion on the matter. My e-mail address is stana-stana at sbcglobal.net.

  1. Hi Stana! Thanks for your continued and valued information. Had a few comments:
    KT Tape instead of surgical tape - KT Tape is used by athletes for sprains and injuries. Its that colorful tape one sees at times on athletes. Its "wonderful"..it stretches and pulls as it is elastic and it is not painful to remove. You can find it in many colors at CVS or on Amazon.
    Bird seed. Oh did I laugh when I read that. I too fabricated one of my first sets of forms using bird seed. What I failed to do however was use bird seed for a pet. Wild Bird Seed is what I used....you can imagine my shock and disgust when after a few weeks bugs appeared in my forms. When manufacturing and packaging wild bird seed there is not so much QC involved so on top of seed, one also gets some insect eggs/larvae. So my word of advice...use rice or get some bird seed from a pet store.

    1. Lucky you weren't wearing them when the bugs made an appearance!

  2. I made a bra filler that way but I used rice and an old pair of pantihose instead of socks
    The rice is smaller than peas so fewer lumps and I was going to put the hose in the garbage can anyway


  3. Love your dress Stana .i tend to wear padded bras but also dresses that cover my chest so i dont worry too much about my cleavage
    Regards nadia
