Just had my testosterone dose upped, which is really nice! That’s my good part, haha. On the downside, I’m really struggling with my thigh shape/thickness/etc. Is there anything g y’all recommend to ease dysphoria in that specific area?

      Ive always liked too big hoodies + tight jeans. If the hoodie goes past your thighs it gives the illusion that your legs go straight up. Losing a bunch of weight and then gaining it back is what actually changes your fat distribution while on T, which is difficult, but possible. Its what i did and my hips are so SMALL i used to hold all my weight in my hips and thighs and its all in my gut now. Gaining muscle is a big one as well. Thighs stay thick but it feels a lot more proportionate

      I might try to build some muscle at some point then as Im not really in a place I can lose weight, and I’ll rely more on my baggy clothes too! Thank you, everyone!

      And! finding pants that go to a point at your waist/hips that you like. I have this one pair of high waisted trousers that have a loose leg and it does wonders for my hip/thigh dysphoria

      yeah, one downside of T is fat shifting around (tho over a few years you may get a more masc fat distribution) One thing I love is sorta long sweatshirts/hoodies, specifically zip ups. I have a few from Target that go to past my hips and it gives a more straight figure —especially if the zip is left open
