#Transwoman: #Feminine Body Language Secrets – Part 2

Wow, last week’s blog post on feminine body language struck a nerve. Thanks for all the great comments and extra suggestions, girls!

There are 4 critical elements of body language:

  •     Posture
  •     Gestures
  •     Facial expressions
  •     Eye contact

Remember, body language counts for over 50% of what you are communicating, so this is a huge part of your feminine image.

Here are DO’s and DON’Ts of mastering the other 3 elements of body language (plus some pics of me doing a little modeling for ya.):

1. Gestures

Women tend to be more expressive with their gestures than men. Next time you’re out, notice how women use their hands and bodies to express ideas when they talk.

    DO use your hands to emphasize what you are saying, but don’t overdo it. Check out GG’s for the correct balance.
    DON’T make jerky or clumsy movements. Slowing down your gestures makes you look confident and in control. Keep your elbows in and practice slow, smooth movements.
    DON’T fidget. Avoid nervous movements like twirling your hair, shaking your leg, or peeling the labels off your beer bottles.

DON’T fidget nervously or twirl your hair    DO practice slow, smooth movements with elbows in

2. Facial expressions

The expressions you make say as much as the words that come out of your mouth. If you’re feeling nervous, it’s easy for this to be reflected on your face. On the other hand, pleasant facial expressions put people at ease and help you blend in and get the respect and acceptance you deserve.

    DON’T wear a stoic expression. What feels “neutral” to you may come across as grumpy to others.
    DO put on a pleasant face. Keep the corners of your mouth turned slightly up at all times.
    DO greet clerks, waiters, and people you meet with a smile – even if they’re strangers. Everybody loves a smile.

DON’T look stoic    DO smile!

3. Eye contact

Eye contact is a major way to gauge a person’s personality. People who don’t make eye contact appear insecure or as if they are hiding something. People who look you in the eye appear confident and sincere.

    DON’T avoid people’s eyes. You know that confidence is half the battle to passing – so look people in the eye and show them that you’re a confident women.
    DO make eye contact and hold it for a second or two. (But not too long unless you want people to think you are trying to seduce or intimidate them!)

So what do you think? What are YOUR secrets for feminine gestures, facial expressions, and eye contact? I’d love to hear your thoughts, so leave me your comments below!

5 Mistakes that Make You Less Ladylike 


What do you think of when you hear the word “ladylike?”
Beauty, poise, and class? Or outdated ideas of femininity?
To me, being ladylike means being classy, gracious, and elegant. No matter what your idea of femininity might be, I’m sure we can agree that those are great traits to have.
So what should you do to present yourself as a lady? I think the best way to answer that is to talk about what NOT to do…
Here are 5 common mistakes that make you less ladylike:

Mistake #1: Showing too much skin


Being ladylike definitely doesn’t mean being a buttoned-up prude. However, good taste goes a long way when presenting yourself as a woman.
It can be tricky to know how much is too much, so here are some simple guidelines to keep in mind:

  • Show off one part of your body and keep the rest covered. A little mystery is sexy, so show off your legs, breasts, or back – just not all at once.
  • Flaunt the right amount of cleavage. A good rule of thumb is to reveal 20%-40% of your bust. This gives you sex appeal, while keeping it classy.
  • Try the finger length test. To determine the proper skirt length, stand up straight and put your arms to your side. If your fingertips fall past the hem of your skirt, it’s too short.

Mistake #2: Not minding your manners


Good manners and etiquette are dying arts in today’s world. Saying “please” and “thank you” are simple ways to elevate your ladylike status.
The rules of etiquette can be a bit more confusing. Here are a couple great articles from the oh-so-ladylike Lauren Conrad on etiquette matters you might face on an outing:

Mistake #3: Being sloppy with your grooming


Grooming can make or break your feminine image. In fact, studies show that grooming has more of an impact on your attractiveness than the physical features you were born with.
Are your grooming habits up to par?

Mistake #4: Losing control


One of the most important qualities of a lady (and of any respectable human being) is self control – especially when you’re out in public.
In other words, no diva acts, angry outbursts, or public displays of drunkenness. It seems obvious, but if celebrity tabloids are any indication, it’s not.

Mistake #5: Poor posture or body language


Finally, don’t forget that your posture and body language communicate more about you than anything you say. Here are some major no-nos:
  • Slouching
  • Biting your nails or playing with your hair
  • Not making eye contact
  • Crossing your arms
Do you aspire to be ladylike?

So what do you think of the term “ladylike,” anyway? Do you find it outdated and offensive towards women? Or a feminine quality worth aspiring to?
