I would imagine it depends on if you want something that looks believable if someone looks down your top, or that just looks realistic(!) from the front/side.

For the latter I suggest you pop down to somewhere like primark and get hold of a strapless bra or strapless body suit to fit your chest, and go for the biggest cup size they have to match, then stuff like crazy! (you could fill with wadding (either the stiff that comes per meter or possibly the stuff for cushions/toys) and maybe use flesh coloured fabric to cover it to look less foam-y! If you make sure you get a bra that has a shape to it already (i.e. not a flimsy lace bra) then you should get a nice realistic shape!

As for the making it look real from above...hopefully someone might know that answer!

If in doubt just channel your inner 13-year-old girl bra stuffing urges!

One thing to watch out for when buying a bra, however, is that you'll most likely have to get one that's pretty tight around the torso! If a guy is stuffing a bra, then there is nothing there to hold it in place with. But apart from that, I don't see any problems, I reckon if you stuff it properly you're likely to get a pretty decent pair of boobs.

oh yes thats a good point! You could always reinforce it with a little boob tape on the side to stop slippage! (or you could spend all day hiking it up like most girls do anyway! +1 for authenticity)

Agreed 200%



I once interviewed a crossplayer in the USA that had success with using a Trojan filled with geltex. You know it is the stuff you can buy at B&Q to seal in sinks and bathtubs. It comes in a large tube and sits in caulking gun. He told me he used a bowl filled with water to support and keep the shape of the mould round. Then when the gel finished and set firm he cut them down to size with a knife. He said he used a Trojan because it was flexible, large and strong.

(If you don’t know what a Trojan is Google it under Trojan Man *wink*)

Don’t know if any of this would work for you but it is worth a shot.

wow you guys thanks ^.^ Its like first crossplay ever and i kinda want it to look at least half decent my friends where totaly on board with it *with alot of gusto from the females, as the other guys mentioned on here* im told i have a femenine figure waist wise/leg wise (though you wouldnt think it for such a big guy* the face is no problem neither is the hair and makeups or dress its just the chest thanks for all your help, i doubt i will get a good looking enough top so i might do what most lust players do and just opt for stuffing with no cleavage, my friends talked about corsettes also for slight amount of cleavage as im not an amazingly thin guy ^.^

That sounds rather like a subtle Trojan ad xD Although yes, that does seem a creative-yet-effective method. If you choose to try it out, let us know how well it goes! (LOL not that I can really imagine a situation in which I'd need to make myself Geltex breasts, other than being VERY bored!)

^^ haha i dont know i would quite like to see it, i probably would other than it isnt really the feel of the boob thats important its just the look im going for though im sure they would look amazing ^.^ its the top bit im most worried about i guess the flesh coloured thing would work like bra then fill with flesh coloured fabricy stuff *most matching my skin tone and then i dont know making breast like things to go in the bra???

I'm honestly not entirely sure how that dude made the geltex-condom breasts, lol, that'd be an interesting tutorial. If you're actually wanting to get the visible cleavage... there must be websites that sell latex breasts. Or, if you really wanted to go down a cheaper route, you could buy ones of those novelty aprons with the boobs on the front! I'm sure that, if removed from the apron,they could be padded out and sewn to a vest, and then a bra could be worn over the top.

yeah ^.^ that could work I might just go for the no cleavage option or corsette it or something i didnt expect to visably look like lust in any way i just wanted to have a jump at it, the bra option seems the most aplicable at the moment but i have a year hopefully and i will see how i pan out, though any more help is greatly apreciated.

There are ways to actually create cleavege my friend!

this wiki article has some information on it- if you scroll down it even has step by step pictures

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleavage_enhancement

(I used many of these techniques to get Ivy's super bust- the impossible is achieveable!)
