I am sorry that this has taken me so long to finally get around to, but here it is..... my latest update to how I create cleavage! Yay!
Let me again start off with a few thoughts about me and my cleavage:
- While I understand that many folks may find cleavage appealing on others, I am not interested in attracting others, besides my wife, with my cleavage. I do it as something to appease my brain. Weird? Yeah, maybe more than a bit. But honestly when I look down and see my own cleavage, my brain says 'yeah that is right, that is what is supposed to be there.' The fact that I am looking at my own skin, what appears to be my own actual breasts, it just fits with what my brain thinks should be there.
- It is more than a bit embarrassing showing myself stripped down so much, but I am interested in truly being able to share how I go about this process. It is very amazing to me that I am able to achieve this look and I am always quite stunned that I am able to do it.
- My previous results have been quite good, but I have been searching for something that is more easily done. Mainly the difference is in trying to find something that works without a "sticky bra."
Anywho!!!!! On with the show!!!!!
|This is obviously a photo of me with nothing on. I am showing this to you so that you can see what I am starting with. I am not on any hormones or taking any supplements for breast growth. I am still at a point that I do not appear to have any breasts when I take off my clothes. Which, for now, I appreciate.|
|Here I am in my newest bra. And I LOVE the color! Really, what color are you going to get when buying a bra from Victoria's Secret? I purchased this bra from a store in Bakersfield, CA. I have tried to find it online and have been unsuccessful. But any bra from Victoria's Secret with a 2 cup enhancement will probably work, like this one or this one.|
|You can see me in process here. I have inserted a couple of enhancement cutlets, like these, into my bra. And what I am actually pictured doing is then pulling up my boobs.|
|By having inserted the cutlets in between my bra and skin and then having pulled up the remaining tissue, I now appear to have some actual boobs. This is what I generally wear when I go out. It is nice and simple, and comfortable!|
|When I am looking to give my boobs a bit more umph, I will then wear this item. It is a great article of clothing, it is called the LoveFifi Elevatrix Bra. It can be worn in addition to any bra. It helps give the girls a bit of extra lift! But it can be a bit uncomfortable. It comes with two sets of straps and I generally only wear one, as pictured.|
|And now, I have on a nice top that actually shows off everything that I have done. This top is from PattyBoutik, and is available here.|
|Another item that I have but generally rarely wear, is this. It is the LoveFifi Elevatrix Power Cami. I don't generally wear it as it is a bit stiff. But, wow, check out the results of that! The only thing I have done, is to take off the previous two items, the top and the bra support and replace it with this "power cami."|
|And lastly, I now have on another top that shows off the cleavage well. It is also from Patty Boutik and can be found here.|
Well, that is it peeps! There you have it; how someone with no boobs can appear to have at least a little something something! Yay for boobs!
Gosh that was a lot of work! But hey, it's worth it huh?
----------------------------------Older Method's Listed Below---------------------------------------
I thought that it was about time that I updated my research into creating cleavage. As you can see from my picture above, my research is going well. :)
Before I venture down that path though, I want to cover a couple of points.
1 - For me, creating my cleavage is not done for sexual purposes. It is because for me, it feels/appears that I actually have breasts, and what is on my chest is not simply some expensive silicon. Even though I do not use breast forms, and my breasts then appear much smaller, being able to look down and see my own skin forming the appearance of breasts is... well... do you see my smile in the above picture? That explains it well enough.
2 - Recently it has been brought to my attention that people modify their photos with software. It occurs to me that maybe folks ponder if I do that or not. (Not that I think I look all that stunning in my photos.) I just want to make a point that none of my photos are manipulated. I actually strive to take the clearest photos I can.
Okay, so let the show begin!!
Here we are at my first layer, nothing! Well there is a little bit of powder in the middle of my chest, between my nipples. Honestly this is a bit embarrassing putting up a picture of me with my top off and nothing else on. But I really wanted to show what I am starting with. Which is basically nothing. I am not on hormones, I am not taking any herbs, I am not doing any special exercises. And I am quite in shape. The one thing I do is to watch my weight.
This photo shows my newest addition and really the inspiration for updating my cleavage creation. It is the Fashion Forms Women's Amazing Adhesive available at Target. It is a size B. It has taken a little bit of tweaking but it works quite well to begin to bring things together.
Now I have on my bra. It is a Maidenform Double Fantasy, which I don't think is available any longer. I should have bought two! It is a 36B. Part of the benefit of this bra is that it is strapless, thus it has sticky lining along it and that helps it to stay in place and keep other things in place.
In this photo I have put on my Love Fifi Bra Support. I did a review of that a bit back. You can read specifically about this item here.
This is a top I bought recently specifically because it is a deep v tank top. It is from Patty Boutique. It is interesting as a top as I had to order it by bra size.
And here I am, dressed fully now, and quite happy with my results!
-----------------Older Method Below --------------
One of the things I enjoy most about how I crossdress now is the cleavage that I can create. I really like looking down and seeing my own cleavage. It is quite a thrill. When I first started crossdressing, my breasts were very large. I look back upon them now and find them to be comically huge! Recently I went through some of my old breast inserts and was stunned at how big they were. I pulled them out and put them into place and was shocked at just how big they are. But when I looked down, I did not like how they looked. Even though they were huge, they did nothing to help me look more like a woman.
Cleavage though, it is a wonderfully feminine thing. So I thought I would create this page and share in detail just how I go about creating the cleavage that I have.
The pictures from below are what I have on in the outfit photo from: Outfit for the Mall
First is a picture of me fully dressed, and showing a good shot of the cleavage that I create. The top most layer is a black Guess tank top. This tank cuts down in a V and better shows off my cleavage.
Second I have now removed the tank top and you can see my bra, and my Spanx like top. This tight top is one of several that I own that is very snug fitting. I have purchased most of them from Maidenform. When I have gone to Maidenform at some outlet malls, while dressed as a woman, I have tried them on in the dressing room, and it is great, except for that I have almost become trapped in some of them. If it is not tight enough of a fit, it won't work. So these types of tops should be tight. I like this particular one because it cuts down very low and does not block my cleavage.
Third, I have removed my tight top and you can see my bra and my bra-like item. I am not sure what to call the extra bra-like garment. I just know that it helps to push my boobs together. This again is another item that I purchased from Maidenform.
Fourth, I have removed my bra like garment and all I have on is my bra. I also have two pairs of cutlets within my bra. The cutlets help to push my boobs towards the middle of my chest and help to fill out my bra better. These cutlets were also purchased at Maidenform.
Fifth, I have taken out the cutlets and all I have is my bra. This bra was purchased from Maidenform. It is a bra that can be worn strapless. It is very snug, and I have the shoulder straps fairly tight. The bra itself also has some rubber like strips within it that help it to not slide down on my chest. It is a size 36A. The bra also has some padding within it.
Lastly, I have nothing on and you can see what I am starting with. The strap marks left over from my garments are quite obvious. I don't know if you can tell, but if you look closely you might be able to see the slight dark patch between in the middle of my chest. I use some bronzer powder between my boobs to help darken the area and help create the illusion of cleavage.
So there you have it. I suppose the only other thing I do to help my boobs look larger is that I do one arm exercise. I lie on the ground with my arms out straight from my sides and with 10 pound barbells I left my arms up towards the middle of my chest. I don't raise them up entirely, I probably go up about half way. If you are doing them correctly you should feel it in your pectorals and not in your arms.
What do you think of my routine? Do you like the results? Do you do anything different that works better for you? I'd love to hear your thoughts, so please share with me.
