Welcome back ladies!
Last week I introduced this series and proposed some garments that I believe address the specific needs of many transgender women’s bodies. But then I realized we need to step back to basics; that I need to educate readers a bit.
So before we continue with fashion and style recommendations, I thought it best to discuss body shape. Your body shape influences whether an article will look great or blah (or even absurd) on you, so it’s best to know your body shape as you develop your personal style and wardrobe. So today I make no clothing referrals; we’ll only discuss how to derive your body shape, and what to do with the information.
In the last week, I wrote the following web-based Body Shape Calculator. I highly encourage you to use it to determine your body shape, and to share it with your friends. Not only will it serve the needs of transwomen, but cisgender woman will benefit from its use as well.
Once the app returns your body shape based on the measurements you enter, it provides a link to guidance on how best to dress for that body type. I will enrich this guidance toward the needs of taller women in the future.
