Satin Over Stress

Working in my field of human behavior and dynamics I have witnessed how people have dealt with the situation of the pandemic.  We are all in this, the situation has remained the same, yet people have dealt with it so differently.  Some people have been incredibly stressed due to the fact of the ongoing changes, and the uncertainty of it all.  Some are stressed by the fact that we are unable to make a plan to move forward because those plans are ever-changing and they cannot see a clear vision into the future and therefore feel frustrated and stuck. Yet, I have also seen others embrace the change and uncertainty, and get a feeling of opportunity and fun, yes, I said fun.  Now emotionally, it is taxing to see people go through the health concerns that come with the pandemic, and that is not fun.  What I am talking about, is the fun that some people are having of creating new idea’s, looking at new opportunities, and feeling a sense of freedom that comes from stepping out of a routine, expanding their creative mind, and seeing the world from a sense of possibility rather than what is.  How are you managing your stress? 

As I sit and write this I am in my blue sleek satin nighty and matching satin and lace panties. I feel good just to be myself, and wear something that feels good, and with that reduces stress.  So, when stress does hit, as it does for all of us, do you take the time to put on something that feels good, that engages that part of you where you feel yourself, and maybe even a little bit sexy?  What if you put something on and your partner's eyes open wide and give you “the look”?  What would that do for your stress level?  Sometimes just slipping into something with lace and satin can help take away the stresses of the world.  It doesn’t take away the external stressors, they will always be there, but it can melt away the stresses of your internal world. Feeling satin against your skin, and the feminine look and feel of lace can give you that little bit of relief that you are looking for when the rest of the world is going crazy.  How about a matching bra and panty set from XDress, or maybe a sexy babydoll set, a garter, and stockings? Such simple things to do, and just maybe, it might help reduce the stress in your partner when they see you in it, and just maybe want to do the same.  Who knows what that might lead to?  My girlfriend has an outfit that she likes to see me in, so, on a Saturday afternoon, I slipped away and slipped into it for her, and the look on her face.  Stress be gone!   

So, for those of you who are going through stressful times, think about this.  Maybe it just might help you destress your internal world.  For those of you embracing the change and uncertainty, get creative, wear some bright colors.  XDress has come up with some great color choices and lace and satin combinations that are guaranteed to brighten up your day, and maybe those around you.  So, when you start to feel the stress coming on, what will you slip into?  Love to hear your thoughts on what you are doing, or have done through the pandemic? 

Be yourself, everyone else is taken! 



I need a lower heel shoe as the high heel is very difficult for me to walk in.

Scott February 20, 2021

Okay. I have had a shoe fetish for a long time. Here where I go shoe shopping, it is well known that I don’t need any help so don’t bother coming over to ask me questions. I know what I like and if I don’t see something I like I will come back another time. These are just my regular everyday guy shoes. So, when it was time for me to take the next step in my XDing and buy my 1st pair of heels, I did as I would do with my regular shoes with the exception that I look for what is sexy and what I would like to see on a woman. I have taken to a 6" platform sandal style heel and 6" wedges. I prefer to buy women’s cause they are cheaper in price and if I chose a man’s heel because they are made for a mans foot they are priced as so. As if they were a specially item and rare. Just cause they are made for a man doesn’t mean they need to be priced higher. There are way more styles & colors in women’s than men’s as well. I see this in clothing too. Hopefully one day this will level out price wise when it becomes more relaxed that men are wearing women’s sexy attire out in the public. I would suggest for the guy that wants to try out a pair of heels for the first time, start out with a pair of wedges. Much more surface space on the floor until one gets use to walking comfortably. Then move up to heels that they want to look sexy in. Thanks

I have always considered high heels an essential part of my dressing. Around the house I usually wear 4 inch heels. Since I am 6 feet tall wearing them helps to improve my posture. Let’s all hope that our day is coming very soon!!

Randy February 20, 2021

Hello miss Michelle. If you see this message I would like to thank you for what you said about high shoes. I take it that will be the same with boots ? Lee. Xx

Nathan and Keri I envy you! My dream would be for acceptance for all clothing by any gender. I have a weakness for open toe stilettos especially with a well done pedi; whether I m wearing them or someone else. A nice pair of heels really sets off well fitting jeans or a pretty dress 👗. Our day is coming

Hello everyone! Oh, how wonderful shoes are. I’m so grateful the days of boring white or black sneakers are in the past. My closet now contains leather boots, (both ankle and knee high) patent stilettos, sequin pumps, and gorgeous heeled leather sandals. 4-5" heels are all I own, aside from a couple pairs of cute flats I wear for occasions that call for them. Being someone that wears heels everywhere, whether it’s the grocery store or just out to dinner, the only type of heels I do not recommend are women’s closed toed pumps. They are far too narrow for men’s wider feet, and will crush your toes even if you’re only walking a couple minutes. My personal favorite is anything open toed. I have several open toed patent stilettos that I can go shopping in for hours without pain or discomfort. My girlfriend and I sure get a lot of attention strutting around in high heels everywhere we go! Anyway, great blog Angie! I love high heels and it’s such an amazing thing that men are beginning to wear them again. -Nathan

Hoi high heels lovers.
Ik vind by een crossdres dat daar ook heels by horen.
Ikzelf vindt het fyn om op high heels te lopen.
Myn hoogste high heels zyn 16 cm en wil graag kyken voor 18 of 20 cm.
Ik kan er super op lopen en vindt het ook zelfs opwindend om er op te lopen.
Alleen is moeilyk om een juiste passende maat te vinden in maat 45.
Maar by een juiste site voor mannenheels lukt dit redelyk.
Ze zyn wel wat duurder .
Misschien nog iemand een site voor my waar ik kan kyken, zou welkom zyn.
Mannen veel plezier in het dragen van vouwendress en het vrouwelyk voelen.

Hi Everyone. Great topic and very appropriate for our community. I got started in dressing by wearing high heels also. I will admit that it does take practice. Start with a short heel and work up from there. Currently, I usually wear 4 inch heels. Since I am 6 feet tall it really adds to my height. One thing I have noticed when I wear heels is that my posture is better and I tend to stand up more straight. Like most of you, I usually just wear heels around the house and on days off. I would be interested in hearing more high heel adventure stories.

Randy February 20, 2021

Hi Miss Michelle

Yes, you have to be lucky with your foot size. I’m at the top end of women’s sizes generally available in the UK and choose a wide fitting whenever I can. It limits styles available but there is still a good range.

How when purchasing ladies high heels in U.K for a male. Allowing two sizes extra one finds the width is the problem in short they are still a female fit ( slim ) and don’t fit the male wider foot.

MISS MICHELLE February 20, 2021

Hi Gurls
Shoes! Ah yes, so often the finishing touch.
My first rule is always, “Can I walk in these?” Unless perhaps I know I won’t be walking…
The gurls who really cut it at the meet ups I go to are those that can walk elegantly and naturally across the room. I like to go lower with heels rather than higher. And if I’m higher, then my heels are wider,
So many styles and colours to choose from! My current favourites are low kitten heel sling backs in snakeskin. They look great with my skinny black faux leather biker jeans with a tunic dress over the top.

I look forward to hearing what other people like.

Reread this blog today as I have been dealing with some stress the past few weeks and this kinda helped me. I find that getting out of the work clothes and into a hot shower at the end of the day is a great way to begin to unwind. Getting out and drying off and then jumping into anything from XDress is a comfortable feeling and one that helps me relax. The way satin and lace feel against the skin is just so comfortable it cant help but melt away the stress of the day!

Scott February 20, 2021

Yes! During these times we all need that stress relief. I feel blessed that I am a crossdresser and after a long and stressful day, there is no better relief than to slip into a that babydoll nightgown, hose and heels. Wow! What a relief that is!!! Of course wearing my panty all day helps too, but there is nothing like that lingerie, skirts, and blouses that make life a little better. Lets all feel good and dress to feel just a bit better!

Geoffrey February 20, 2021

Hi everyone
A very thoughtful blog. I not only enjoy dressing up and going out in these times – I think it’s actually become a little safer where I am because it’s become quieter – I also find that reading these blogs and exchanging views with like minded people helps a lot too.

Love to everyone

Ally February 20, 2021

Very well said! Internal stress is easier to release and XDress helps me do just that! These are trying times. The news is horrible and it does create a lot of anxiety and depression. What better release that a glass of wine, a nice matching panty and bra set from XDress and your SO ogling over you! Stay safe!
