How To Measure Your Female Jeans

How To Get A Perfect Fit, In Your Jeans

March 9th, 2011

Many TG women, will wear their jeans below their waist. Measure you waist: With 1 finger under your belly button. Levi Jeans has a new Feminine Curve jean out, very reasonable price.

Measure yourself at the waist and inseam before going in. Lots of color for this Summer and Spring! Color in shoes and handbags!

If using padding in hips, allow extra inches for hip measurement.  I suggest, using a dark wash, with stretch! Be sure you’re in Misses not Jr. Try Jones of NY or my personal favorite

which I wear, Boston Proper. Boston Proper has wonderful jeans that stretch and some of their jeans come in Tall.  The newer “tight at the ankle Jeans” Skinny Jeans are great with heels or to tuck into boots.

I suggest jeans which stretch, and cover your tummy if needed. Jeans this year come in Grey, Light Peach, Black. Not just the regular jean color, so find some with colors!

Hello Ladies, this is Denae of www.FemImage.com

I had a friend tell me about a pair of Panty Hose by National–which promises not to run or your money back. In addition, they come 3 pairs to a package, and are perfect for the TG as they are not as sheer as the regular panty hos but not opaque. They will cover a leg with light hair, again ideal for the CD. So, I put it to the test. I found them comfortable and  no runs! Go to their web site for colors and styles. More information below.

JEGGINGS ! JEANS PLUS LEGGINGS FOR WINTER STYLE WITH BOOTS AND LONG TOPS

Hello Everyone, I am just back from shopping. For winter, the stores are showing a lot of leggings. However, Macy’s has very tight fitting pants, (also tight at the ankle) which looks much better when worn with the long tunic tops. And, if your shape is great, you can wear them with a shorter blouse. I suggest you look for these, before you purchase leggings. The stores also have jeans, which look like tight leggings. With the tunic blouses, this is a great look…especially for tg women who may have a difficult time with the tummy area. I purchased a pair of black tight pants, which look like leggings, at Macy’s. INC is the brand, they stretch and look casual or with the right blouse…can look dressy!

How To Groom Your Eyebrows While In Guy Mode

Hello to all you ladies with Facebook/blogs. Thank you for following my FemImage.com  blog, please do email me, if you would like to ask any question or open anything up for discussi.

Let me start with Eyebrows while in guy mode. I had a consult yesterday with family,a CD with wild grey eyebrows–for work. First, it isi finally okay for men to groom. And, wives should understand it helps  a man look younger and stay ahead of the younger men coming from behind you at your work. To tweeze the hair between your eyebrows– Don’t take out to much. Run a pencil up from the outer quarter of each side of your nose to the eyebrow, and that is about where your brow should start.  Don’t pull inward to much as it will look “off”. Next, simply clip the long eyebrow hairs, nose and ears. (They have special devices at Walgreens for the ears and nose, as that can hurt when pulled).

If your eyebrows are grey,  you can color the grey away lightly, again it helps you stay ahead at work. You have to be very careful to not get it in your eyes however it does not run and goes on like toothpaste purchase “Just For Men  For Mustach and Sideburns” —not for your hair. It is very simple. It has a little brush, and you glide the color over your entire eyebrow. Leave it on for 5 mins and remove. You can use Vaseline on the skin, you would not want any color to touch. And, you can lightly feather the same color into your sideburns. Test your time on your eyebrows, sideburns. You can always re-apply if it is not covering the grey after 5 minutes.

Also, to train your eyebrows to not have the “wild professor” look simply trim them at the tips to comb so the wild hairs go UP at night, and not downward…apply Vaseline to your eyebrows at night to go upward  in the beginning of the eyebrow and then downward with the eyebrow hairs– at middle of the eye. Man grooming is finally okay and many executives have this done at a salon, however Just For Men is under ten dollars. Just do not get it in your eyes or have someone help you the first time. Even at a Barber Shop .  So, use a little as you go along your eyebrows in strokes that follow the direction you want when slightly arched or more for fully arched girls who are full time.

This will look great when the makeup goes on! And, in guy mode will make you look younger, without arching the eyebrows, just between your nose and clip the ends of any longer  hairs, and then apply Just For Men. Presto! Women use this also, who have some grey in their eyebrows and don’t want to pull out all their eyebrow hair to reach the grey. If you have a wife or girlfriend to help you, even better.

Select a color closest to your hair color. If you have difficult grey to cover, leave it on about 10 mins or go one shade darker. They supply gloves so you will not get the stain on your fingers. Many women use this, and now men do too. So, this is ideal for the TG woman. Just don’t get it in your eyes. Try it, it will take ten years off a mans grey areas. For more tips on my DVDs for TG women and for my private one on one private consults in the San Francisco Bay area, come to visit me at www.FemImage.comSee my DVD button, I have ten years of material for you to review!

Handbags

Hello from Denae Doyle. I was asked today during a consult, about which style of handbag to use. Since most  TG women are about 5′ 8′ up you do want to consider the handbag which is best for a tall to very tall woman. Avoid long skinny-style bags with long straps. Counterbalance your figure with something broad, slouchy or unstructured such as a HoBo type. Often, I see clients with small bags, and I feel it makes her look taller! I would purchase a medium size bag. It is always better to purchase a purse which zips closed, so nothing can be taken out of your purse (or fall out of your purse). While shopping at the drug store or grocery store, I use the baby strap in the “cart” to put through and snap on one or both arm straps, this allows me to walk away from my basket for a moment. Black is probably your best color. I have several colors in my closet, and my “Go To” seems to be my medium to large black zip with a bottom which has “support brackets on the bottom which holds your purse up off the floor and it does not pick up dirt or sticky items on the floor. O, if I know I will be walking most of the day or visiting someone house (not in a store) I carry my black Hobo which has no bottom brackets, so I hang it on the arm of my chair. When buying a purse, look in the stores mirror, to see howeach purse size and shape looks on your figure type!

It is best to get a purse which matches your shoe or boot color. With Winter here, think of the black purse, black boots, and a long dark coat, and put a scarf with lots of color wrapped around your neck. If you can wear a hat, I always put on a Winter cap, as it is very girlish!

Sitting In A Feminine S-Curve

Hello Ladies, As Promised herewith more on Feminine Movement. I was eating here in Santa Cruz, CA yesterday when a well dressed TS woman walked in, and slide correctly into her booth. However, she ordered a pizza and a bottle of beer. Okay, we all relax, but the deal breaker was two-fold. She spoke to the waiter with a mans loud voice. Next, when drinking the bottle of beer, her elbow went straight OUT to the side while drinking large gulps. The elbow out, really did not blend with her beautiful appearance. Lets go back to Vol 1 on the blog. Remember, elbows IN, along with knees and feet. With just a few simple changes, this well dressed woman could have been all woman. Okay, I say it over and over. The two most important aspects of blending as a female when in public is your Movement & Your Voice. Makeup and Hair, you can pay for. However only you can create your own mannerisms and voice. Pull IN. We will cover some Voice in coming blogs when we are finished with movememnt. I have also had request for Wardrobe coordination. More later, and regardless keep your elbows in while eating or drinking and eat slower!

Listening As Others Speak

As a woman, always listen while making eye contact which is something men generally don’t do.  Nod often with your head while maintaining the eye contact. Observe how little men do not maintain eye contact OR use an open smile.  I always enjoy watching Hillary Clinton when she is listening to another. Her head  nods up and down continually!  Watch, the next time you see her. She is telling the person they are important, or that she may agree with them so set them at ease (even if she doesn’t). Practice, by seeing how long you can make eye contact before glancing away. Also, remember to smile in a mirror, a larger smile than you’re comfortable with.  Again, men generally do not smile using an open mouth. Remember to, tilt your head. All these tips will help you look more feminine and the man will feel more at ease!
