Instant Hourglass Curves
DressTech silicone hip pads are the ultimate crossdresser body shaper. They’re made with medical-grade Echoderm silicone for the most realistic look, feel and movement. They even match your body temperature and conform to your every move. They blend seamlessly beneath Spanx or tights, providing feminine curves that are indistinguishable from your own body.
Hip pads are intended to be worn beneath supporting shapewear, such as our Shape’N Go compression shorts or Bodywrappers dance tights. For an amazing nude effect, drag performers love to wear DressTech hip pads with two pairs of opaque dance tights, followed by fishnets.
The very best hip pads are available exclusively from DressTech. We used the latest computer technology to develop superior geometry that blends. The edges are mesh-reinforced; razor thin and tough as nails. We’re proud to offer the only product in its class that is actually guaranteed to not rip or tear.
DressTech Hip Pad Features
Edges are mesh-infused so they can be made paper-thin without sacrificing strength.

DressTech hip pads are guaranteed against manufacturing defects. Durablend edges are protected by a 12-month warranty against rips and tears.*
The warranty covers tears that occur from resonable use, which are greater than 1″ in length or which otherwise affect use of the product.
Made in the USA
DressTech hip pads are hand-made by our team of Special FX artists in northern California.
Hip Pad Fit Guide
Tip: There’s no need to get a perfect match because your hip pads will be worn beneath other layers. Simply pick the color that is closest to your skin tone; most customers order the Light color.
Tip: Customers below 150 pounds are usually happy with the Regular Size. Customers between 150 and 200 often select the Large Size. Customers over 200 pounds are usually happiest with the Big Girl Size. For reference, the model in the video is 5’9″ and 170 pounds. She wears the Large size when she goes out and wishes to make her outfit pop. She sometimes wears the Regular size for a less dramatic daytime look
DressTech silicone hip pads are available in two different lengths for a professional fit. Most customers choose the Standard Length for a more gradual blend and feminine thighs. Standard Length hip pads look amazing with tights, yoga pants, as well as longer skirts and dresses. The short length hip pads work best with shorts, short skirts and outfits that end well-above the knee.
REGULAR size adds 3″ to hip measurement; 16″ long X 9.25″ wide X 1″ thick; 3.4 lbs per set.
LARGE size adds 4″ to hip measurement; 17″ long X 10.25″ wide X 1.25″ thick; 4.75 lbs per set.
BIG GIRL size adds 5″ to hip measurement; 18.5″ long X 11″ wide X 1.5″ thick; 6.8 lbs per set.

I purchased a set of short pads for the recent Gala and I could not be happier. The helped create a nice figure and do not show under a shorter skirt like my long pads. The stayed put under tight and hose and were comfortable worn for 8 hrs+. When placed under a pair of hose I can wear the pads under leggings without a noticeable seam. My set of back pads was also compatible with the short pad set just as they are with the longer pads. My longer pads have been worn well over a hundred times and are 5+ year old and still in great shape. I expect the shorter ones will last as long.

Fantastic product! I just received them a few days ago, and I’ve already spent two nights wearing them. No one in my life knows I do this, so unfortunately it’s all in secret, and not shared with the ones that I love. That being said, I think the product is extremely well made and worth every penny. I wear them beneath a silicone full body suit, if you’re curious, they work almost seamlessly beneath the body suit. A much more feminine appearance than when using clothing items to secure them in place, you can’t even tell that they exist. I wish I could post a photo to show the results.
These are just essential and I never dress without them. They are thin enough at the edges to wear without lines under leggings and comfortable to wear all day. They really give you a great shape. A periodic cleaning in an Ivory soap solution is all that’s needed.

I would like to start off by saying that I can not say enough about these pads. I am on my third pair but only because I purged the first two pair during darker days, but those days are over as I am out with family, friends, and neighbors. I have owned my present pair for about 3 years now, and I would like to talk about their durability, realism, and comfort. For one, I do not get dressed without them, when I dress, about three times a week, I wear them all day, I talking 8-12 hours at a time. Girls that is a lot of use in three years, and the only wear is very minor fraying at the edges. These pads are very realistic, they go on cold but warm up in minutes. I purchased the Big girl pads and I still add a bit more padding under my pads, what can I say, I love my hips. I also wear butt pads. I’m 185 pounds, and 5′ 8″. I do use the Shape N Go girdle which holds them very well and makes it easier to go to the bathroom. Once the pads warm up I can not even feel them, it’s like they are part of me, I have never had them move around on me, even when sitting. I always wear skirts or dresses and when I wear a short skirt or dress I just wear two pair of tights to hide the girdle, that works very well. I live in Washington state so it is not as hot as other places, but it does get in the 90’s during the summer and you will sweat a bit but I have never had an issues with sweat showing. I adore these pads, they are amazing, I wish I could show you a picture. I am very careful with my pads, especially having long nails and if I ever have a accident and damage them I will not hesitate to purchase them again and again and again, well you get my point. Believe me girls you will not be disappointed, buy them, they will change you life, they changed mine. I now got out all of the time and I go everywhere and I get treated very well, I finally happy, thank you Dress Tech.
Thank you for the awesome review! For those people (about 5%) that have problems with excessive sweating, we recommend our very strong antiperspirant spray. This is the strongest antiperspirant you can obtain without a prescription and you can find it here.

JUST BUY THEM ALREADY. That’s all I have to say. I bought them 4 years ago and through endless wear they are still in good condition. I took years to decide to buy them. Should have never waited.
For years it was fit and flair dress if I wanted to pull off any semblance of a figure. Pants were just out of the question. 5’-10” 165 lbs and no hips.
Got the size regular thinking they would probably be too small but would stay in place better. Happy to report they aren’t too small. They make a huge difference. I can ware just about anything now and jeans and yoga pants look perfect. It’s so dramatic for just 3” added to my hip dimensions wow!
Right against the skin is the call. They have a slight stick to them that doesn’t wear off, so they don’t slip even with shear to the waist nylons. If you get the bigger ones you will need more support.
Pair them with the butt pads for sure. It’s a perfect look and definitely worth the extra money.
Take your time moving the pads around in front of the mirror for the best look depending on what your wearing. Once you get it down ,it’s real easy and not having to wear restrictive garments is a real plus.
Thanks Procrossdresser for your great discrete work. Nice craftsmanship. These are top quality!
Hi ladies , just to let you know if you are still trying to decide to buy these or not just buy them ! They help produce such a beautiful and flattering feminine shape .I bought the large size along with a set of the butt pads and I couldn’t even believe what they did to enhance the look of my skirts and dresses . Don’t waste your time with anything else ! And of course the customer service can’t be beat either .

I was born a woman however I am 6’0 and have very thin legs and no hips..I have met guys on dating sites and they often asked if I was transgender…it got to the point where I would post baby pics just so they knew I was born a woman.Having had situations like those made me very depressed and I did not want to live..sometimes I would not even leave my home. I purchased the big girl hip pads about 2 years ago and life has not been the same..My self esteem is high now because of these wonderfully made hip pads..mine have held up for 2 years I have worn them Everyday… I am purchasing another pair!!! Thank you so much
All the good things people say in these reviews are true.
* SHIPPING: My package arrived yesterday, I was stunned, it didn’t take long to get here (New Zealand) from the US, so the shipping you pay for is great too. A plain package with the small print saying ‘fashion accessory’, in case that’s an issue for anyone.
* EFFECTIVENESS: I’m trans and though I’ve transitioned medically, my hips still aren’t proportionate to my shoulders. I’ve used other pads in the past but these are just streets ahead, so real-looking AND feeling.
* SIZE / FIT: I got the large size that tapers down the side of the thigh; I’m 5ft 9″ and my shoulders are about 17″ across, and I’d say these are just right for me. Looks amazing in combination with my real boobs. I also bought the crotch-less shorts to hold the pads in place — what a genius idea.
* DETECTABILITY: Applied right, you cant detect these even under lighter dresses (maybe if the fabric was real thin and a light colour like white or bubble-gum pink). Even then you could just wear a slip. I wear high-rise panties over the top and all you can see is the visible panty line sometimes. Jeans and thicker, darker skirts/dresses, no way anyone will know.
* COMFORT: The weight is reassuring/ real-feeling to me. You’d have to be super unfit to ever get tired of walking around with these on, though. Only issue is heat. Can get a bit sweaty (talc is advised by manufacturer). They still don’t move around though, they kind of cling to your skin so you’re almost peeling them off. For summer, knee-length shorts would be fine with these, or a maxi dress, or anything mid-calf or knee-length or ankle-length. The product’s just so good I might save up and buy a set of the smaller pads which can be used with shorter shorts. Using these on stage under hot lights might be uncomfortable but that’s uncomfortable for any performer anyway.
* DURABILITY: These things aren’t flimsy and they have the specially designed edges to prevent splitting. There is a warning from the manufacturer to be careful with fingernails so as not to scratch them. I guess try not to bump into any sharp objects. Not sure how they’ll hold up over time but they seem robust enough. They come with a discreet neoprene case you can store them safely in.
* VALUE: if you’re thinking of buying hip pads which you’re going to use often, I’d say DON’T waste your money buying a cheaper set; save up the extra and get a set of these, they’re so worth it! I’m sure you’ll love them as much as I love mine. Thank you so much Dress Tech for creating such an awesome product, please keep up the good work! xxx

Thank you for the comprehensive review. For those who perspire under the hip pads, we recommend our antiperspirant spray. It’s very effective!

I finally got the chance to try out the Silicone Hip Pads for the first time, and OMG! They are Fantastic! I’m slight-built (5’8″; 130 lbs.), so I ordered the regular size. The pads give me a very natural, slim feminine curve. Not too small; not too large. I DO recommend ordering a Shape ‘N Go Crotchless Body Shaper because getting the pads on and positioned properly is difficult, especially for newbies such as Myself. You’ll also appreciate the “convenience” of having the open-crotch as well!
Also, delivery was quite speedy, and I’m Definitely a Satisfied Customer!

I’ll just say that the accolades in the reviews are on point. I too…am ordering the short length “Big Girl” ones for my summertime shorts and skirts.

These hip pad are So worth it, got them in the post the other day and put them strait on and WOW!!
It took a lil while to get used to having a lower centre of gravity, but now I feel naked when not wearing them
Could not be more happier with them❣

I’m a trans woman. I’m 5’4, I weigh 175 and I bought the size Large Hip pads and they’re perfect! They suit my body and even out my shoulders and top half along with giving me sexy curves. I 110% recommend them! This is such a great product fo trans women like me that just didn’t get enough curves on hormone therapy. Thank you!!

Such an improvement and so worth it!! I had been using various kinds of padding, including homemade foam pads, because the DressTech pads just seemed so expensive. After much frustration with lumps, edges, bumps, rest room fiascos etc. I finally decided it was time to upgrade my foundation wear. My DressTech pads paired with the Shape N Go girdle are amazing! They are like a second skin with no lines, seams or edges that can be detected. They provide an amazing boost of confidence and allow me to really rock it with my wardrobe. And when it comes time to use the ladies room, the Shape N Go girdle make it super easy and convenient. The pads and the girdle are truly superior products and worth every penny. Add to that the fantastic customer service that Judi offers, and you will be assured that you will be well taken care of and that you are making a wise investment.

I bought a pair of large pads a few months ago, and I wanted to come back and give a review after I’d had a chance to properly evaluate. I wear these pads during my normal day – putting them on in the morning and taking them off at night, wearing them under jeans or other casual clothes.
In short: they are AMAZING. I’ve worn these pads many times as a “daily driver” and it’s been great. A+

So after a few years of using home made “pillow” type pads I finally broke down and spent the money on the full length hip pads and also the butt pads. I’m around 5’10” and 185lbs so I got the large size and they look and feel amazing, much more comfortable and natural looking that what I was using before. I probably could have gone with the big girl size because I have larger than average shoulders/upper body and a fairly narrow waist. it might be smart to take some measurements before and see what size would get you to your ideal shape. I use a Spanx high wasted mid thigh shaper to hold everything in place and it seems to work perfectly, I had no trouble getting them in place and haven’t had any issues with them moving throughout the day. I couldn’t be happier with the hip or butt pads and totally recommend them to anyone they are def worth it.

Hi Ashley – thanks for the rave review! Please feel free to email me at email@example.com to discuss getting BIG GIRL hip pads. Also, you may want to consider our newest garment, the Shape ‘N Go, which you can find here.

So far, absolutely amazing. I’ve had them for a few days and have only done a couple of tests, but the first word that came to mind after putting them on was “magical”. Having pelvis and hip dis-morphia/phoria, these pads hit the nail on the head. I am 5’11, ~190lbs, and I got the large size. At first I thought they might be a little too big, but then I got some support garments which really makes them hug your body more tightly and they blend in very naturally. A little more compression also helps them to stay in perfectly place and not crease or bend when bending over or sitting down.
I’m going to experiment with some other undergarments, but from what I’ve seen so far they totally work.
Another great thing is that you can position these in a few different ways to create different hip, thigh, and butt shapes. I’ve found that moving them a little further back than shown online creates a more natural overall shape for my body, but YMMV.
Professional female illusionist with 10 years experience here. Wore foam pads for years and always hated them. Discovered these a few years ago and threw my foam pads in the trash. Best invesment I’ve made for my craft. I usually wear two to three pairs of dance tights with a pair of nude fishnets on top and they are unclockable. My *only* complaint is that when its really hot, sweat rings form around the edges of the pads and show through the tights. Does anyone have any suggestions to remedy this?
Diana Vandenburg –
Hi Chloe. I’m so happy you love them! My best advice for sweating is to apply our strong antiperspirant. You can find it here.
I have had these over a year now and they are bullet-proof. If you are on the fence about buying, then may I recommend you just do it. They are the SINGLE BEST enhancement product that will not only make your figure look more feminine but when you see yourself for the first time wearing them you will FEEL more feminine too!
i finally decided to take the plunge and order some silicone butt pads and large silicone hip pads for myself.. the arrived a couple of days ago and are absolutely amazing giving me the gorgeous and feminine hips and butt ive always desired. paired together with a good waist cincher the look is truly amazing…thx

I tripped across your website and immediately made up my mind that I needed to have the hip pads and butt pads. I ordered the big girls size and love how they give me curves to match my 6’2″ 190lbs look, now to save for a few more items Will be back for sure!
Just worth every penny!
Makes you feel in heaven!

I’ll just have to quote other reviews by saying “I should’ve purchased these a long time ago”. They came well packed and shipping quickly. Happy that I watch the videos for these hips on to buy spanks to keep them secure. I used the spanks and tried every piece of clothing I had. It’s crazy, no amazingly how everything looks on me now. I’m thrilled with the large hips I’ve ordered. I hope that if you’re reading this it helps you in ordering a pair.
I’m a transwoman, and most of my dysphoria is with my narrow hips.. 1 year ago today, I bought a pair of the big girl pads and it completely changed my life. My confidence is much better, and my dysphoria is pretty much gone!
They are a little warm, but it’s nothing a person can’t get used to. I live in arizona, and im an avid runner (yes I put them on and hit the treadmills at the gym) I cannot praise this product enough… im here today to make another purchase, since I’ve lost a lot of weight, I want to wear shorter clothing, so I’m buying the short pads. My big girl pads still look as good as they did when they arrived at my door
Im 5’7 and 140. I bought the Big Girl size and they are AMAZING!
The dress tech will make your self esteem go through the roof and you’ll feel like the woman you were born to be.

After much hesitation, I finally bought a pair of standard pads. Why did I wait so long?
The pads went on under shape wear and felt and looked so natural. It warmed up after a while and moved naturally. I wasn’t even aware of the additional weight, which is substantial. My friends tried but couldn’t detect the edges.
They stayed on very well all day. And I did sweat some under hot weather but it wasn’t too bad.
The shape they gave me was realistic and fantastic in pencil dresses, fitted jeans, leggings and yoga pants. I even wore a jumpsuit and loved how I looked.
The standard length pads give a great look but you’re restricted to knee length skirts & dresses and pants, jeans, leggings, etc.
Now I’m thinking about the butt pads and short pads.

Just received my HIP PADS. I bought the STANDARD length LARGE and they look great, but really wish I purchased the BIG GIRL size. Several things to keep in mind….. I love to wear tight jeans and leggings, the hip pads do add volume and I may need to lose a little weight in order to fit into my very tight jeans. Went shopping tonight and was still able to fit into Medium leggings and “stretchy” SIZE 8 pants, but had to go up a size on the less stretchable fabrics. The pads add great shape and loved trying on jackets where the “hip flare” would show below the short jackets. I looked around the store and I had a much better Femm shape than a lot of Genetic Girls. I purchased two pairs of shorts because the hip flare looked great with them. So now I have to purchase the short hip pads so I can wear all my Short shorts and Mini dresses. Well worth the money because it enhances the look of ALL your clothes. One last thing – The added weight of the pads helped to add swing and swivel to “my walk”. 6 STARS….
Bas (verified owner) –
Best buy ever to enhance a men’s no-hip to a girl’s-hip. As crossdresser I like them very much. Bought the big girl-set because of the lack of any hip on my male figure. The big-girl is really big but on a man’s hip it is definitely not to big. They are great under tight dresses but also under leather or latex. They don’t get pushed away under the pressure of the garment. If you are looking for sometime like this: do it!

For years I made my own foam pads… OMG these are soooo much better. Very comfortable to wear and you can hide them under as little as a 1 or 2 pairs of tights. The edges completely disappear. WELL worth the investment. I bought one of the original pairs (no non tear edge) and I loved them. I later upgraded and bought the new style with the reinforced edge. I don’t have to worry now about tearing the edge when I put them on. One of the best investments for my girl side I ever made!
Rich B (Aka Miss Filthy Rich) –
After many years of trialling foam pads and generic (cheap!) silicone hip pads that were never actually hip shaped, I came across the DressTech hip pads early this year on youtube. As an athletic guy who cross dresses, i found foam pads looked too bulky and clearly showed when i sat down or moved in certain ways – I wanted something that mimicked a natural hip.
From my first contact with the team via Facebook (they answered my message within the hour), they very patiently answered all my questions and offered me advice on the best hip pad for the look i wanted to achieve. There was no guesswork involved – we discussed, height, weight, my body shape and the silhouette and figure i wanted to portray. This was all offered with no pressure to actually buy the pads and i genuinely felt like the team were actually helping me and freely offering their expertise without a ‘hard sell’. They were genuine and honest in discussions and steered me away from the pads I had originally enquired about to a smaller (cheaper) size based on my desire to create a believable feminine silhouette.
They also explained that silicone hip pads would be heavier than foam and explained the differences in weight, shape and how this would allow the hips to sit closer to the body, require less support (i.e. one pair of support shorts vs 3pairs of tights and shorts over foam) and move with the body.
Delivery was quick and well packaged. I will admit it took me a few attempts to find the right position for the pads originally, but once they are on and have heated slightly to body temperature they feel like a second skin. They are flexible and move with your body, even when sitting down- and even held down under one pair of support shorts they are totally unnoticeable as pads! When i have been out with foam pads in the past Ive always been somewhat self conscious about the way i move etc and the fact that as soon as someone puts a hand on that hip, they know its not yours. With these hip pads I’ve been out trekking through central London, danced for hours and even swung around poles in a gentleman’s club (don’t ask).
If you want pads that actually look and feel like hips, that don’t leave tell tale bulky lines and creases and don’t make you feel self conscious – invest in a pair. Guaranteed they will last you years – I’ve had mine 9 months now, worn them weekly and they still look and feel like new.
Rendari Synclaire –
I have looked at all manner of prosthetic enhancements for my hips and posterior and have only seen extremely expensive products like “Gurl Shorts” and “Fem Girdle” for near or over $1000 and happened on this product and was somewhat skeptical about them. For the price I could not pass this opportunity to try something different and I am very glad I didn’t. Attaching these is somewhat clumsy however once they are in place I don’t really notice them, you don’t need an adhesive if you wear them with spanx or nylons/tights but I prefer to use Shapewear. I will be ordering a Regular size for my every day and use my Large size for weekends. these are one of the best purchases I have done especially for an impulse buy and if you are like me who has no but or hips these are great if you are on a budget. Thanks for a great product.
