If there is one item of clothing that defines femme style and fashion, it has to be the dress.
For every occasion, from a wedding to a date to a leisurely walk in the park, there's a dress that women can trust. Of course, dresses aren't just for women, despite the social norms surrounding the garment. Across the gender landscape, dresses can be comfortable, fashionable, and yes - very sexy. So what makes a dress sexy? In a word, your confidence wearing it. But there are some factors that can help.
Fit, fit, fit
Nothing's more important than fit, which is why at En Femme we tailor the measurements of every style for crossdressers and trans women. Our clothes are designed for AMAB (assigned male at birth) bodies, so our designs - from a sexy party dress to a casual brunch dress - will accentuate your curves just right. A sexy dress will follow the contours of your body and hug you close - but not so close you can't ravish the dance floor.
Know Your Measurements
You'll find it much easier to shop for the ideal sexy dress with a few numbers on hand. To find your measurements, there are three primary locations -
- The first is your waist. Measure right on your belly button, and don't suck your belly in. A dress should be comfortable, so relax when you're taking the measurement.
- The second is the chest. Take this measurement 2-3 inches below the nipples, right under the pectoral muscle.
- The third is the bust. Take this measurement at the nipples, first without any breast forms, then a second measurement with breast forms (if you plan on wearing them).
Remember, different brands number their sizes in different ways, so your size may change from store to store or site to site. At En Femme we make this process easy with a useful sizing tool for all our dress styles. If the first dress you try isn't quite right, don't fret! En Femme offers returns and exchanges on products in original condition. We will also work with you prior to purchase to ensure you find the right fit the first time.
The word is occasion
Clothes derive power from context. Your lunch date demands a different look than your night out, and feeling dressed for the occasion is a big factor in feeling your sexy self.
Look at our selection of sexy dresses, and you'll find everything from a boardroom-stomping power dress, to a pink-sequin disco dress, to the little black dress of your dreams. If you're new to wearing dresses, consider trying something versatile. But as many will attest, finding a dress you love is an addictive experience. There's a lot to choose from!
Why are sleeveless dresses so sexy?
Some dresses are sexy because they bare more skin; some are sexy because they leave something to the imagination. Ultimately it's up to you how much exposure you're comfortable with.
