The Swing of Things: Super Fem Swing Dress Review

I waited with guarded optimism for the En Femme swing dress to arrive in the mail.

I had questioned my reasons for purchasing the dress over and over again since placing the order from the fabulous En Femme fall catalog.

“Was I making the right decision?” I asked myself. “Was the dress ‘too young’ for me? Could I look half as good as the lovely trans girl model in the catalog? Was I insane?”

All my fears were dismissed when I received the swing dress and wore it for the first time. The dress was above and beyond my expectations.

The swing dress is a sassy combination of elegance and style with its integrated full petticoat under a full skirt, which adds volume and movement to your hips, and the sleek and fashionable black lace see-through back and sleeves.

The entire dress design immediately enhanced my appearance, especially with the help of a corset, and helped me to create a daring hourglass figure. The softness of the stretch fabric material made the dress so comfortable to wear and its 22-inch back zipper allowed me to step in to the dress with ease. I did not add a belt, as shown in the catalog, but that too is an option to provide a little different look to what is already a stunning dress.

I tried to be a little more daring than usual due to the dress’s beautiful lacy back. I went bra less to keep any unneeded straps showing through the lace pattern. I used a spray adhesive to attach my breast forms to my chest, thus eliminating the need for a bra. And the results were better than I expected. My breasts stayed in perfect position, giving me even more freedom of movement.

The swing dress is perfect for any flirty or special occasion. I can see myself wearing the dress for a girl’s night out on the town, to a semi-formal party, or to any special occasion where a little formality is required. No matter where you wear the swing dress, you'll feel extra girly in its effervescent look and you’ll draw more than your share of compliments.

    You look stunning!!! I just bought my first dress from En Femme. It was a difficult decision since I don't dress up and go out often enough an hour at home in private once or twice a month. This year I'll be going out in public in Palm Springs for Crossroads and have already purchased Dresses, petticoats, hip pads, smaller forms, and shoes!! OMG 6 different pairs. I have always been afraid to purchase from a specialty site like En Femme because I was worried I'd end up on some secret list. This dress was on sale (Sleek Body Contour Dress In Wine). OMG, I look to die for in it. Now my biggest fear is that there will be more than one Girl wearing the same dress.

    Dear Kim — Thanks for the lovely comment and suggestion. I have worn black sheer hose with this dress and it is definitely a plus and a sexier and stylish look. I wore the nude hose for the pictures with this article to co-ordinate with the girls in the En Femme catalog. Again, thanks for the kind words. Hugs, Carollyn

    Hi Carollyn, I must say you look gorgeous in your black En Femme swing dress! You go GF!!! If I may make a suggestion for another look – black hosiery! When I wear a LBD I love, love, love to wear a sheer black pantyhose to enhance my look. It looks fabulous! AND, when I want a sexier look, I slide into a pair of Levante or Wolford back seam STW pantyhose with Cuban heel and a pair of D’Orsay black pumps! Believe me – those sexy little seams will let you own the room! You will go from gorgeous to stunning! If you are concerned about coverage on those difficult days, this little trick works well: slide on a nude STW 8 or10 denier pantyhose (Aristoc has a lovely 10 denier) then, slide into a pair of say 15 denier black shiny STW pantyhose, the look is still sheer enough for a fabulous sexy look, yet equivalent to 20-25 denier for better coverage– and good hosiery is a must – the best hosiery gives the best comfort and sheerest, sexiest look! Have fun! Hugs, Kim
