We've all been there.  You look femme, feel femme, and even smell femme.  You dress, thinking how passable you are at the moment.  Then you see the way you are moving.  You're stiff, hunched over, walking very manly, and have all the grace of Frankenstein.  Any advice on how to move more feminine and avoid looking like Quasimodo in a dress?

For full disclosure, I’ll add this…

I’ve had arthritis since the age a 6. I am now 75. I have always walked a bit odd as one leg is about an inch shorter than the other. Over time one ankle has continued to wear itself out. Decades ago some folks thought my walk was a bit swishy but there wasn’t much I could do to change that.

Late in 2016 I had a mild stroke. No speech issues or memory issues (as far as I can remember!). But, my balance is only about 80% of what it was. The result is that when I sit for a while or stand for a while, I am wobbly for a bit when I start moving again. I use a cane when I leave my house. It takes a lot of concentration for me to do a more feminine walk but almost always this will take a backseat to getting where I want to go.
