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!

    I so much understand what has been written. I discovered my mothers under clothing and would wear it when I was six or seven. Then I would dress under and ride my bike around the blocks of my neighborhood. A bit aware and scared to be discovered but in heaven as I rode. After I was very careful to replace the garments as I found them. Today many, many years later I still remember how that felt. Wonderful. Now all I have is bras, panties and some wonderful breast forms. But still want to be a women.

    For me, it’s sheer to waist pantyhose and thong bodysuits. My first desire to dress and become a woman was when I was about 13 years old. I was watching a gorgeous trapeze artist on TV, she was wearing a sparkling thong bodysuit and very sheer nude pantyhose with a nude backseam. (I wrote my experience in reply to article: “Can I ever stop Crossdressing?”) Watching her smile and point her toes and smooth up her nylons, teasing, teasing – OMG – I so wanted to be her! That’s when I recovered a pair of my sisters discarded Round the Clock Nude N Naughty pantyhose from the bathroom trash can and slid them on while lying on the carpeted Living room floor watching this lovely lady on television. What a soft and lovely feeling as I slid on these gorgeous nylon hose. Pleasure filled my whole body as I tucked my lovely “soft on” back into my booty cheeks making a smooth and lovely transition into a sexy woman. I felt the sexual pleasure mount and liquid pre-love wetted my nylons. Totally exploding in a very beautiful and pleasure filled orgasm – I was hooked from then on, making bodysuits out of my tee shirts, actually buying pantyhose “for my sister” with my allowance money – I just had to slide on pantyhose whenever I had the chance, tuck myself in those lovely nylons and pull on a thong bodysuit and pretend I was a girl – I loved it! I felt wonderful doing it, so much guilty pleasure! Thinking at the time it was only a fetish – I still liked, and dated girls. I thought it was very strange that I felt pleasure doing this, but I couldn’t stop. Fast forward to today, I’m so comfortable transitioning into a woman today it’s more than sheer to waist pantyhose and bodysuits – although they are still my favorite feminine clothes. Plus, pantyhose have come such a long way. With the introduction of lycra and other fabrics, hosiery is much more sheer, they fit so much better and feel absolutely lovely! I buy very stylish European hosiery from my hosiery gal, she is amazing and keeps me well stocked with the latest, sexiest and most sheer hosiery. She also introduced me to stockings and garter belts – so sexy and fun to wear. I’m sitting here typing this reply wearing a gorgeous pair of lovely Platino back seam, Cuban heel, sheer to waist in Paradis (nude) in a very sheer 15 denier – just heavenly! I pride myself in knowing more about sheer hosiery than most So-California women LOL. Wolford, Platino, Fiore and Gabriella in 7 to 15 denier are my go-to favorites for a sheer and sexy look. Fine hosiery and soft thong bodysuits for me ladies, those beauties started my whole lovely journey! Hugs, Kim

    I think I tried on a pair of my mom's pantyhose when I was about 10 or 11. I don't think at the time I really understood the feelings they gave me, but they made my pee-pee feel good to rub it through the nylon. A few years later, when I was old enough to be left home alone, I found mom's stash of stockings and sexy lingerie. I would put them on and imagine I was one of the pin-up girls like those in the calendar in my grandpa's workshop. Now, many years later, I can actually almost look exactly like one of those girls, with high-heeled pumps, big boobs, makeup and awesome hair. I've recently starting putting together a collection of latex clothing.
