For some crossdressers, I don’t know why they can say about the dress they used when they do crossdressing that they ( the dresses ) are just clothes. Here’s some possibilities why they become crossdressers who can say that :
- Maybe they are not people who like to be picky.
- Maybe they like whatever dress as long as it is a women ‘s dress.
- Maybe they don’t have so much knowledge about women’s dress.
- Maybe they don’t have taste about women’s dress.
- Maybe they do it carelessly, because it is just a moonlighting hobby.
- Maybe they just say it carelessly
But I have different opinion about it. First time I became a crossdresser, only Javanese blouse that called kebaya that interest me. I used it with batik cloth that wrap around my leg until my waist or my hip.
I didn’t know what courage that makes me dare to buy women’s dress for me by myself. I did it since I was in college. The first time I bought was a batik cloth. Then I bought Javanese blouse kebaya. Maybe I was lucky that time, because the seller didn’t have any suspicion about me. Or maybe I wasn’t sensitive about that. The question that they asked was for whom ? And I just answered it with stereotype answer like for my sister or my friend.
But recently I also interested with other kind of women’s dress such as mini skirt. I can be said as picky if it related to women’s dress. I ever had an experience. I have to go back to the store the next day to exchange the dress I bought the day before. I still did it with reason to buy a dress for a friend.
I didn’t know the truth whether the sellers know that I buy the dress for me or not. Maybe they just try to be polite with their customers. Maybe they didn’t know the truth that I bought it for myself. But whatever happened, the transaction still went smoothly. And I didn’t have to be ashamed of it. In business, maybe we can say about it as win-win solution.
But I still have admiration for crossdressers who buy women’s dress by themselves and try it at the store. The almost same thing that I did it was I try women’s shoes at the store. And I was lucky, because the seller didn’t ask me any questions.
