I honestly think in this picture at least you look very feminine now. My shoulders aren’t super thick, but I find that wearing dresses with a tighter fitting top and a flared bottom with a belt helps balance out my figure. Seems superficial, but wearing a boxy dress definitely makes you feel more boxy.
A lot of what I wear falls into this category

That's for damn sure!!!! Lol, my body shape is probably closer to your old one and I'm a cis woman, but that doesn't stop me from rocking my "little mermaid" inspired two piece! You look amazing!!!!
Pretty much everytime he takes a shower. He used to do it 2x a day to like kick off the initial hair growth but it's pretty oily/tacky (great to try during quarantine when you don't have to go on public lol). After a few weeks of that, he saw great growth and cut down to once a day.
This is what we buy!
I don't understand English in transvoice either they use some intense terms or things that don't make sense haha.
My advice is to use a voice pitch application like this one daily to see how your pitch improves.
Never clear your throat, always drink water when you feel the need to clear it. Read your favorite book aloud to a recorder, and listen to it after 5 minutes of reading. It helps to hear the playback of your voice not just the pitch analysis. Don't practice too much in 1 day. Start slowly like 30 minutes in the morning and night.
Then the one that really helps is find a female musician to sing along with. Don't stress yourself to get on the high notes, just imitate the sound in a comfortable pitch for yourself. It helps with where to add emphasis during the sentences you speak.
And the huge hint, practice practice practice! Don't skip a day, like exercising you have to teach your muscles in your throat to speak a little different. Eventually it becomes second nature. I haven't dropped pitch in 3 weeks and it is really helping.
I bought a few of these and they are nice and cheap.
Much as I hate to admit, I just really lucked out on the colour. They're cheap, so I got a few different shades that I thought matched and one was perfect.
I got them here on Amazon!
They cover really well and I'm constantly met by astonishment when I just take them out. No one realises they're fake until they're in my hand.
They can hurt after a bit, but so long as they catch enough hair atop your head, they're super nice. I keep them in all day with no problems! Good luck! <3
I just started a routine today actually in hopes of fixing it.
Using these daily:
idk if I'm missing anything or if I should add in an extra moisturizer? I'm also using a special moisturizer that's supposed to help my hands (on my hands) but hasn't done much yet. :(
It’s like a corset but not as stiff. You have to be careful when using one— never wear it while you sleep and start with short periods and work up to longer— but in MtF’s it can very slowly push the lower floating ribs in to a new resting spot.
A good custom corset is always going to be better, as it’s tailored for your body specifics, and corset changes are permanent. A waist trainer does less drastic things, and if you stop training it your waist will return to where it was after a week or so.
But, long term wear (months to years) of a trainer can decrease your waist size through movement of the lower floating ribs by a few inches, which when paired with HRT helps a lot.
I just want to stress, do your research on how to safely use one if you choose to. I got mine on Amazon, here’s the link.
Home Laser, it's not a big name, I just went online & trusted the high review ratings. Can say from experience it works very well on arms/legs, at least
I'm not OP, and I'd also like to know -
But this one is shockingly inexpensive and does an amazing job squishing my 'halfway between a 32B and 32C' bust together into proper cleavage.
A gaff is best and provides supportive comfort. There are several makers on Etsy that sell them and they will all do the same thing. Like any type of underwear YMMV. The maker I order from is this one but they have really cut back on production.
If you don’t want to wear a gaff most full butt woman’s undies will work ok. I have these from Amazon and they hold me well enough to wear 3” inseam shorts without worry.
This was the exact one I got! :)
awwe glad u like it 😋😊 the top is from Amazon, I will say the pics on the listing itself didn't give me a good idea of what it looked like BUT that being said obviously it worked out pretty well and while the materials aren't suuuuper high quality it's very comfortable and not irritating to my skin at all :) (a lot of things irritate my skin lol)

Unfortunately. :(. There is a cream product called "hair straightener". https://www.amazon.com/STRAIGHT-Permanent-Straight-System-Straightening/dp/B09Q16SFKR/ref=mp_s_a_1_4?crid=1EMTEAPNBEE75&keywords=hair+straightener+cream&qid=1649284349&sprefix=hair+straightener%2Caps%2C119&sr=8-4
Hope it helps!
just fyi. get this book . the kindle version is cheap. Lotsa websites describe this but its all here in detail. Facial Feminization Surgery: The Journey to Gender Affirmation - Second Edition https://www.amazon.com/dp/1950091392/ref=cm_sw_r_awdo_PHEHPKRB3ERDDG6BG8K6
Here you go! The hair I clip it to us actually very thin In the middle of my part, so actually it isn't clipped to a whole lot. Your milage may vary but as long as there's even some baby hairs it clips in well, I feel like it could be more secure, probably from not clipping to much, buy it holds well enough in my usage to wear casually pretty much all day every day the past two weeks straight with no discomfort.
Good work on the makeup, I would suggest a different wig though just because the type you have (I have one too because it was my first) is pretty obvious that it's a wig. I currently use:
The hairline for this wig isn't very defined so you kinda have to style it with hairclips or a headband. I like to clip the bangs back and wear a hat or beanie.
Here's probably my all time favorite book regarding anything psychological in nature, and even if you don't have very many issues, it's still a phenomenally good read, because it teaches you just how much your thoughts can control your mood in everyday life.
Feeling Good by Dr. David D. Burns
A Yoyofactory Onestar is great because it comes responsive but can be made unresponsive (whether or not the yoyo is able to return without a special trick called a bind) https://yoyotricks.com/shop/the-sage-yoyo/
Or a Magicyoyo N12 (only unresponsive) https://www.amazon.com/MAGICYOYO-Professional-Spinning-Blasted-Strings/dp/B00ZOOSO1E/
Not necessarily! I looked into that as well when I first started my transition - but I'll tell you up front, there are studies out there that talk about how ADHD and Estrogen interact, so your ADHD is probably going to get 'worse' as the next few years go on and you'll have to readjust.
It was a really sad thing to find out that a lot of cis women and period-having folk also don't know about the connections between ADHD and hormones. It can get really bad around periods, according to studies.

Just buy one of those waist trainers off Amazon. Theres lots to choose from. I got a small size. Tightest I could find lol.
Divafit Women's Waist Trainer, Black, Small https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00PSZRZT6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_quhzCb1NGYPQD
The next step is corsets obviously. But I'm not that hardcore yet lol
My chest was a huge area of dysphoria for me. My nipples were about the size of a pea and I longed for the breasts I just inherently knew were supposed to be on my body. HRT and occasional usage of nipple correction suction cups have helped a lot. The style I used is available at Amazon and I’m sure plenty of other places.
If this therapy interests you or anyone else, here’s a link: https://www.amazon.com/Healthy-Care-Natural-Enlargement-Enhancer/dp/B01B1OGIH2/ref=mp_s_a_1_11?keywords=nipple+suction&qid=1553084414&s=gateway&sr=8-11
My eyesight is atrocious as well! I recommend getting a circular vanity mirror with a 1x side and a 5x side. You can use the 5x side for eye makeup and the 1x side for general makeup application. Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07T1Q8ZMJ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fab_XMpzFbDF7Y3MA

For the aftershave, I've been using Tend Skin Solution: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BVO6RT2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_Ap-rFb56YM27V
For moisturizer, I use Neutrogena Hydro Boost: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NR1YQK4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_Kq-rFbW4M3R5P
HRT helps with growth. Spiro will slow it down. I shave every day against the grain with a multi-blade razor, then use aftershave and facial moisturizer to help prevent razor burn. I bought this electric razor to put in my purse for touch-ups throughout the day as needed: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0768M8SVH/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_XHVrFbY23SQMR
I also use color-correcting concealer and regular concealer when doing my makeup to remove facial hair shadow.
the cool thing is it's from Amazon and it's pretty cheap! it's a synthetic wig, so it tangles a lot but i still love it. here's the lil link boi Style Icon Easy-360 Lace Wigs 28"... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RTHP7FN?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
A: 5%. I use this brand because it's super cheap ($50/year): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DTPYGHQ
A: I take a 1000 mcg (1 mg) capsule once or twice / day. I think the required daily value is something like 30-40 mcg, so it's definitely overkill lol.
Androgynous female! (I don't hug box, btw) Your eyebrows or your hair? If it's the former, I'd advice to put beauty oil on them, like Castor oil. You can also put them on your eyelashes--it's suppose to promote hair growth and keep hair from falling so easily. There are other oils by that same brand which are great as well (avocado oil).
I do a lot of my shopping on Amazon. This is the one I have and I'm quite happy with the quality. HSI Professional Ceramic Tourmaline Ionic Flat Iron, with Travel Size Argan Oil Leave-in Hair Treatment https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001MA0QY2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_YSeqxbW9JKD0H
