That they are until a woman or significant other who never seen a man or their man in a bra finally see it and go hmmm lol I’m just embracing it as much as I can they are growing and it is what it is. I put my bra on today and seen a defining line that wasn’t the cup and was instead my boobs pushing out over the top. I had a tigger shirt on yesterday and braless and passed a mirror and laughed cause his eyes were 3D now. 
Felt rebellious today so in our new office while I got pretty much total privacy anyone can still walk around and by our enclosed cubicles. Decided to adjust my bra to give a little more lift did a scoop and swoop and unbuttoned my shirt polo buttons and pulled the collar apart just a little. Been a very long last week and this week I feel the thrill and playfulness of showing a little cleavage is a fun distraction.

I've had my girls in a bra for well over 30 years. I still find them getting in the way. I'll open my car door and swing the window jamb right into them.

The good of it is with women's slacks or jeans having limited pockets, your bra makes a safe, secure spot for your ID, some cash, even a cell phone when you're  wearing  the right  top.

I'm happy for you that you are accepting of your breasts. I've always enjoyed having mine.

As I have said before to many women who I have talked about this with....
I discovered the joys of seat belts! 



As of late, I have been buying pants with stretch for several reasons, but fit seems to be applying more. Straight leg jeans have been a norm for me all my life, but now I am finding that some jeans no longer fit well and look like a really bad bag day on me. 
I have only purchased one pair (I posted a phot before) of women's Lee's but have been looking at another pair here soon.   

I also have a few pairs of leggings, and recently put them on to look in the mirror and saw slightly wider hips and thighs than I thought. 


The process is slow and a bit uncomfortable at times, but as long as you accept it, I think the aura of an individual begins to morph normality into it and people simply dont notice. 

Its when you sweat over it and try to hide it that things pop out.

I have been wearing jeans from the other side of the aisle for a while but hadn't really gotten into leggings much. However, my friendly sa that I first opened up to purchasing for myself at Lane Bryant pointed me in the seamless Livi leggings. I must say, they are quite comfortable, and I can get away with wearing a black pair out of the house with a long-untucked button down and boots. And the world did not stop turning.

The confidence of yourself in anything you wear is crucial. As I think a few decades, the changes were fairly daunting as I seagued from  plain white mens shirts to my first pink, then later to flowery paterened ones. I was very introspective. Looking back no one I met cared a "stuff"

I was feeling much the same when beginning to wear a bra for very practical reasons, seagued to wearing a skirt {initially as a more comfortable option during a very hot, humid UK summer} and then finding that almost all women's clothing was far more comfortable than that in the men's aisles. Each stage was disconcerting to me but again most people seemed not to notice or, if they did, didn't give a damn.

In any case my starting point is to "not allow others govern how I feel"  and certainly not what I choose to wear. 
Almost 100% of men with gyno who try a bra never turn back!!

It’s so true how women’s clothing can be much more comfortable than men’s. I wore wrangler cowboy cut jeans all my life. I had hernia surgery a little over two years ago. The first thing the nurse said is to get rid of those jeans and buy something with stretch in them. She called my jeans stranglers. She said that there is men’s jeans with stretch in them and most women’s jeans have stretch also. So don’t be afraid to investigate all your options. Restrictions in movement as we age is a bad thing. So shop both sides of the store to find your perfect fit and style with lots of comfort. If your on that side of the store buying a bra or panties. You should try on jeans also to find that perfect fit. And maybe women’s jeans are not o good option for some. But at least you will know after trying some on.

Absolutely "Confused old man" . 
Women's clothing  is one area where for many, ignorance certainly isn't bliss

Almost a decade before   "Sophie " was born. I was wearing mostly clothing that  came from the women's  department or a women's clothing store. It all fit better than any men's clothing that I could find. I looked and looked and I couldn't find a single bra in the men's department. After a decade of so of wearing a bra full  time, it hit me. I started wearing panties because they fit. Women's button  down  blouses  wear also designed for a  chest shaped like mine. Slacks and jeans were also cut to fit my hips and waist. This was long before my transition that I learned that women's clothing wasn't just for women anymore. At least until in my case it was. 

Wear what you like and wear what fits. 
Bras aren't for women, they're for breasts.

Hi Sophie, in fact women's clothing has a lot of advantages. Some days ago I was looking for short shorts, but the men's department at C&A didn`t have them, they had only bermuda shorts. In the women's department there were large sizes for young women. Voilà. The best short shorts I got:). It was a little strange to use one of the changing cubicles since there were a lot of young women in their 20s around. But no reaction.
Some years ago a lingerie company tried to launch a sports bra for men. They asked for suggestions from men what they needed. But I never read about the result. It seems that this was a nonstarter.

A bra is just an article of clothing for people with breasts.

I've always had problems fitting in men's pants. I still have to cinch my belt a good two inches around my natural waist, when I pull up my men's jeans. I'm 5' 6" and wear either a men's size 34/28 or 32/28 inch (if I can find that length), or a women's size 10/12 Petite.

Hey Jonni🤗!

It sounds like ladies jeans and slacks will probably work well based on the fitting challenges you are faced with. 

I can say that Torrid is an excellent place for men to shop for women's clothing. I bought a lot of my clothing when I was still pretending to be a man. The SAs there are happy to help men find and try on clothing that fits.

I'm a size 10 but, with women's sizes,  the sizing is not always reliable so it's always a good idea to use the fitting room before buying women's clothing. 

🤗🥰👩‍🦰

Hey Sophie!

I've found that Land's End women's basic mock turtleneck shirts and polo shirts work well for me. So does Bonobos' line of shirts, which come tailored for short males like myself. Charter Club size 10 Petite jeans fit great on me. But dressier pants are a problem, so I'll check out Torrid for those!

Jonni ;D

Hey Jonni 🤗 

Torrid also has some button down blouses they call "Camp Shirts". They come in solid colors as well as various plaid patterns. The have an androgynous look to them with a feminine cut. They have a generous chest area that tapers nicely at the waist that flares out at the hips to accommodate a more traditional feminine figure. The material is super soft and airy. I wear mine year round. 

😍🥰🤗
Sophie ❤️
