Body Hair and Crossdressing: Do They Mix?

After almost a year of working here at XDress, I feel like I’m really getting to know many different things about the crossdressing community. I’m learning general preferences when it comes to outfits, the daily life of what a crossdresser might be, and the overall culture of the community. However, there seems to be one topic that I see is quite polarizing, as I’ve seen people who love it and people who think it’s just got to go. The topic? Whether or not to keep body hair while crossdressing.



I can see why either would be a good thing. Shaving the body hair will create a smoother look, which would make you appear more like society’s typical woman. The thick areas of hair could detract from the overall aesthetic of trying to look like a woman, especially if that’s what the goal is. It feels very “masculine” to have a lot of body hair, so I honestly could see why someone would say that crossdressers should be hairless.



However, I do also see the argument for why keeping body hair while crossdressing could work. People have commented that the masculine nature of the body hair against the femininity of the women’s clothing ends up being somewhat of a turn on. It gives that “man-in-a-bra” look a whole new meaning, really making the masculinity apparent against the feminine clothing. It’s a very unique way to explore that kind of expression, because it shows a comfortability with both masculine and feminine expressions of their identity.

So I do see the arguments for both, and I feel that I, personally, have no preference when it comes to body hair with crossdressing. I can see why someone would prefer one to the other, but overall, I see the value in both. Smooth looks more feminine and matching to a woman’s features, but leaving the body hair can make for an attractive mix of masculinity and femininity.

But most of all, we want to know what you think! Do you prefer body hair or no body hair while crossdressing? Should people only do it one way, or is both ways acceptable? Let us know in the comments!


Manscaping is essential! I like waxing personally! Lasts about 4-6 weeks and is affordable.

I have no objection to either although I don’t shave (I even have a beard). Whilst I prefer hairless on a woman except down below where a “brazilian” is just about acceptable, I prefer men as masculine as they come. The more masculine the look the greater the turn on when in lingerie.

I prefer the smooth hairless feel of my own body and that of my crossdressing lover. When we are wearing nylon, silk or satin and your hand moves from the material to the naked shin and back, it’s a real turn. Just slipping on lingerie and it glides over your hairless skin feels sooo good and there is no hair to distract from the look and feel.

Alway hairless I cross dress to make myself feel more feminine and body hair really detracts from that feeling

Please all, live and let live . We all want acceptance for self. Me I like the contrast of male female together. Sometime I’ll shave the chest hair when I m wearing a bra for the look it gives. But we should let everyone have their way!

I love the feel of pantyhose and smooth panties on hair free legs and genitals. I also keep my under arms free of hair. I don’t stink or sweat as much. Aside from that, hair is a strange thing. Society expects it but grooming it is a multi million dollar business. Same goes with how you wear your lingerie. I prefer to see hair free legs in hose but what you wear and how you wear it is a very personal choice. Many guys don’t get a choice. My chest hair, which I’d love to get rid of, is still here because my wife won’t let me remove it. Men rarely have full control of their own bodies and clothing choices.
Xdress does the right thing by having a variety of models in different states of body hair to reflect the varieties of men who love the products and that means more people relating to it.

I definitely prefer the no hair look. For many years I shaved my entire body but a few years ago I opted for laser removal of my back and chest hair. I even opted for a Brazilian. It is the best thing I have done. I still shave my legs and there is a little that still returns on my body but it is easy to remove. All of my bras, camisoles, panties and stockings feel better and I think look better. Laser was a bit expensive but for me it was well worth it.
