Are You a Fetish Crossdresser? (It's Great if You Are!)

Many crossdressers start out as fetish crossdressers.

Some crossdressers progress into fully presenting as a woman and some simply stay as they are—enjoying the fetish they have and the time when they engage in it!

Many fetishists find an item of female clothing, or the style of a garment from En Femme’s great clothing range, or a special type of outfit which they particularly like—and get great pleasure from wearing such item (or similar items) over and over again. Some crossdressers have no need to wear more than several female items and may never go all the way and fully present as a woman; they may never go out and meet others, being content just stay at home or in a hotel and indulge in their fetish for things feminine.

Not that there is anything wrong with this; they are quite content, enjoying their interest and bothering no one.

There are so many fetishes we can talk about but we’ll have a look at the top 5, and you can see if any of these sound familiar!

In no particular order, some popular fetishes:

  1. Women’s Underwear: Possibly because such items of clothing are the most accessible, so many crossdressers start out by wearing panties and a bra. Indeed, no matter where they end up, many crossdressers can still remember the very first time they fastened a bra behind their back, filled out the bra cups with old nylons or bird seed or whatever was to hand. They can still remember the first time they pulled on a pair of silky panties and how they felt as the soft fabric brushed against their thighs and enveloped their nether regions. And, of course once they had tried wearing a set of women’s underwear, our crossdresser was absolutely, totally hooked; the feelings, the sensations would live with him forever. Over time, our fetish crossdresser may order all sorts of styles of bras and panties from the En Femme website, but he stays loyal to simply wearing women’s underwear. He just likes it so much!


  • Stockings and Garters: The fetish of many crossdressers to wear stockings and garters is often linked to wearing underwear as mentioned above. In some ways stockings and garters portray that sensual, sexy image that many crossdressers are looking to recreate when they dress. Often worn with or as part of a corset or other sexy upper garment, it’s not uncommon for many crossdressers to build their whole style or appearance around these items of clothing, maybe adopting a heavy, sexual type of makeup, with low-cut tops and short skirts. The sheer, black, soft nylons held up with a well-fitting garter, the tension in the garter tabs evident every time our crossdresser moves… Why change if you really enjoy the feelings?
  • Mini Skirt and High Heels: Again, interlinked to some extent to the above fetishes, wearing micro mini-skirts and 4” or 6” high heels at every available opportunity are activities many crossdressers revel in. Who doesn’t love to show off their long, shapely legs? Who doesn’t love to strut around teetering on very high heels—and get intoxicated by the feelings which wash over them when they look in the mirror and see their sexy legs and skirts? Maybe this fetish is one of the very favorites as some crossdressers seem to have such great legs, perhaps due to their exercise they do or the diet they follow. Whatever the reason, if you’ve got them, show them, even if you are likely to get some strange looks while prancing around the local shopping centre in the middle of a Saturday lunchtime in your mini skirt and 6” black patent leather, strappy heels! 
  • Uniforms: Now this is an interesting one. How many crossdressers have a fetish for uniforms or outfits? The one that comes quickly to mind is the French maid uniform—white frilly apron, short working dress, frilly panties, and white head wear. It’s easy to lose count of how many crossdressers like to prance around (often wearing stockings and garters too) doing some housework and, seemingly, forever looking in the mirror at themselves in uniform! Of course, there are plenty of other uniforms out there such as a nurse’s uniform or maybe a female superhero outfit. Indeed, with the advent of cosplay and its huge popularity, more and more crossdressers are taking to wearing uniforms... might be time to dust off one of your old outfits or buy a new outfit/uniform from En Femme! 
  • Rubber or Latex: Always one of the perennial favorites of fetish crossdressers, rubber or latex clothing comes in all sorts of varieties and variations. Maybe rubber underwear or mini-skirts or tight-fitting tops which leave little to the imagination. Then there are skin-tight, roll-on latex all-in-one suits, sometimes used in conjunction with female masks which give the wearer a totally female look (a sub-fetish known as masking) or more often just items of rubber or latex wear to give pleasure and enjoyment to the wearer—often by their tight, restrictive nature… and maybe for enhanced enjoyment in role-play or light bondage


As we all know, within the crossdressing and T-girl communities there are a myriad of varieties, shades and colors of people. We are all unique and all like different things and experiences. So whatever your fetish, go for it and don’t be concerned about what others may think—it’s still just about a free world!

    My mother taught me to dress when I was only 4. I grew up in the wonderful 50's. Days of full-fashion seamed stockings, high heel pumps, pencil skirts and bullet bras. As an innocent child I had no ideas what a fetish was, or the power it would have over me later in life. Mother encouraged me to play in stockings and makeup. (Yes still my favorites). I do not think her intentions were innocent. Non the less, I have pursued stockings , garters ,pumps and makeup ever since. As I matured, I focused on becoming a "passable" female. In the early days, there were no wonderful sites like EN FEMME. All I knew was I had a passion to "dress and act female." I am self-taught. Now, I dress and go out in confidence. I do not go over the top with my wardrobe, but I still wear garters and stocking when appropriate. Like Kim said, "Fine hosiery…started the whole lovely Journey!" Have fun Dressing! Barbara Jane.

    My earliest memory was trying a pair of my mum's high heel boots on when I was about 6/7, at the time I no idea of what the feeling's I was experiencing but something stayed with me, a few years later when my parents had gone on holiday for a a fortnight my grandparents came to look after my brother and myself I found some porn magazines my dad had stashed in the spare room and I started to emulate the image's whilst riding my mum's lingerie draw and shoe cupboard, by now my feet were a bit larger than my mum's and so it meant squeezing my feet into her shoes.
    By now I had a paper round and did some car washing in the area and was getting my own money so I started to buy my own footwear and underwear, saying that I was for my mum, sister, auntie etc.etc.
    This carried on until my early 20's I would dress up in lingerie and footwear when ever I was alone in the house.
    When I moved in with my now wife I binned everything I had vowing to put that part of me away and for a while I did but after a year or so of marriage I started to dress up in my wife's clothes again squeezing my feet into shoes that didn't fit.
    After an evening at the pub with the help of alcohol we had a frank chat and she opened up about being bisexual and wanted to sleep with women again but no other male than me, maybe the alcohol helped the situation I agreed and then she also mentioned that she would love to make love to me dressed as a woman. Wow Christmas has come early I thought, the following morning we went shopping for lingerie for myself and boots that fitted (her weakness). Family came and so dressing up got confined to the bedroom only but now the family is all but grown and left we/I feel now is right for us to go out as a couple of ladies together.
    The feeling I get when I'm Jayne is electrifying it's not just the clothes it's just feeling right in myself and with my loving wife's support we will continue our journey together.

    The first time I wore pantyhose was AWESOME. I had just shaved my legs and wearing them under my male pants felt amazing.
