Transgender woman, aka trans woman, is a transgender individual born as male, but identifies as a woman. Most of the steps written above for trans men apply for trans women also. With coming to terms of who you are inwardly, coming out, legally changing your name, and other things mentioned above do apply for transgender women also. However, they would pass as women by wearing women’s hairstyles, makeup, clothing, and taking on expressions typical of females. And of course, the procedures and hormones taken are different to appear and have the traits of a woman.
Both transgender women and transsexual may transition, but only transsexual women would transition medically. They would use estrogen hormone replacement therapy. This is the main component in medically transitioning because the development of the female sexual traits, like breast, body fat redistribution, a smaller waist to hip ratio, etc., are all included. Taking these hormones along with SRS could bring total relief of the potentially distress effects of gender dysphoria, and they could be total free of being what they truly feel inwardly.
