About Me

THANK YOU! for your interest in this subject matter and in my story. INTENT: #support for the #significant_others of #transsexuals and #transgender, to #advocate the necessity of being your authentic self, and to share information with others. By this, I hope to support your own journey, or add to your understanding of the journey of someone you know. ABOUT ME: A 45 year old #heterosexual woman, divorced w/children, I met Jack and fell in love. Six years into our relationship, he confided his secret desire--Jack wanted to be a woman. Before his disclosure, I had no reason to suspect his interest. It was a shocking surprise! It was the decade of the 1990's. Little information was available to help ME understand 'Why' and 'What next". Not only was Jack in transition, but by virtue of the circumstance, so was I. Guided by my heart, I began a journey of my own. Stepping out of my comfort zone I challenged my attitudes and belief systems, as well as, my own sexual orientation to help me decide 'Do I stay, or do I go"?

The makeup was perfect.. The bra? Not so much....


Seeing J dressed in drag, with makeup applied better than even I could do, I realized, "he" at the time, did not need any help. (But if you do, for a "how to" watch the makeup video in sidebar)

When it came to buying a bra, however, J was at a loss. (For M2F trans pondering how to find the right one, try this video in the sidebar on for size.) As far as 'where to go", I suggest starting in major department stores such as JCPenny and Macy's. These stores are usually well-equipped to fit most women with styles, from sports bras, to functional, sexy and pretty,in colors, fabrics, patterns, lace, underwires, and spandex. Choices, choices...and, at average pricing. Sales women with years of experience are usually available, and will help you with sizing. Boutiques, and Victoria's Secret are also options. I have found, however, that sizing in boutiques and at Victoria's Secret may be different than the average bra store, and prices higher, so be prepared. Once you know your size, another good option can be Target for inexpensive bras. Bra prices can fluctuate anywhere from $12.00 to $85+.
