How To Shop For Lingerie As A Transgender Woman

by белый

Buying lingerie can be a tricky task. However, shopping for underwear as a transgender woman is about more than just finding a set you like the look of.

Depending on how far along you are in your transition and how comfortable you are with going into a store to be fitted, shopping online for trans lingerie is often the easiest option, and that’s okay.

At Lounge, we’re committed to creating an inclusive and diverse space. Our underwear is designed to empower everyone and encourage all of our Loungers to embrace their beauty in their purest form.

Explore our style guide to help you find your perfect Lounge fit and discover the best bras for trans women.


When shopping for new underwear, we would always recommend that you check your bra size, as there’s nothing worse than the pain of a poorly fitting bra, especially when it’s so quick to fix! 

Whether this is your very first time measuring your bra size or you think your cup size may have changed, our blog on How To Measure Your Bra Size At Home will help you get cupped up and ready.

If you’re still a bit unsure whether you’re using the right technique (don’t worry, girls, we know it can be a bit tricky), our Fitting Room has been designed so you can find your perfect Lounge fit and feel.

It’s important to consider that your build is likely to be different to that of a cis woman. Trans women often have broader rib cages as well as a firmer chest and upper torso, so we recommend that you opt for a larger band size than what you measure as. If not, you can always buy bra extenders, as we wouldn’t want you to miss out on any of our Lounge luxuries!

Here at Lounge, we want to make shopping a seamless and enjoyable experience for all of our Loungers. 

We’ve collated a list of all the things you need to be mindful of when shopping for underwear as a trans woman. 

  • Shop for bras or bodysuits with adjustable straps, as these will accommodate your height and torso length better. Luckily for you, all of our bras have adjustable straps. You’re welcome, Loungers!
  • If you want to give the illusion of a smaller frame, we recommend bras with wide straps, such as our Sustainable Lace Magic Set or our Bare Set.
  • Non wired bras (particularly bralettes) may be the most comfortable, as wearing wired bras following chest surgery may cause discomfort. 

  • High waisted thongs or briefs will be your best friend, as they tend to be more figure-hugging. Try our Chic Balcony Thong or our Floral Mesh styles.

We love hearing about how Lounge makes you feel and it fills us with so much pride and joy knowing that you love Lounge just as much as we do!

We caught up with some members of our Female Family to share their experiences of wearing Lounge as a transgender woman…


What has your experience been like with working with Lounge Underwear?

My experience working with Lounge has been incredible! Working with such a huge brand as a trans woman feels great. They have always been really supportive of me and my story and have let me tell that to their followers and mine through their products.

It’s always been hard for me to feel confident in underwear, but when I tried my first Lounge set on I felt instantly more confident, powerful and proud of my body.

Has Lounge Underwear helped you in any way?

Lounge has definitely helped me gain more confidence in myself. Wearing their underwear sets makes me feel my best as they’re so flattering, they have given me the confidence to upload photos in underwear and they make me feel more comfortable and proud to be myself. 

Before I worked with Lounge, I didn’t feel as confident as I do now and I could never find an underwear set that really flattered my body, so I can’t thank Lounge and the whole team enough for always being a dream to work with!

What is your favourite Lounge product?

My favourite product is the Sustainable Luxe Balcony Set! I love the way it fits and the emerald colour.
