Tucking / Gaffs:
CN: Standardized terms for body parts
Here you will find a quick overview about tucking, and gaffs that you can also buy in our shop. We also share information about how to find the right size. You can find the slide text below.
The online PDF flyer “tucking and gaffs” by Queer Lexikon explains everything about tucking, how to and safety.
- Tucking is a method to hide the outer genitals and to make the bulge less visible
- Gaffs are underpants that support the tuck and give it more stability
- Tucking is for every person that feels like it no matter their gender
- For some people tucking may help with body dysphoria. It can also support perceiving yourself & being perceived in your authentic gender (passing)
- Tucking does not have to define how a person identifies themselves. It is an option that can be chosen at will
- Undrowear gaffs have a similar cut as regular underpants
- The difference is the following: The crotch area is wider and the edges are supported by extra rubber band so it holds better. The front part is triple-layered, thus it provides extra support and makes it flatter. The back part is elastic.
- The online flyer “tucking and gaffs” by Queerlexikon (@queerlexikon / queer-lexikon.de) describes how a tuck works and what happens to the body parts when tucking
- With the size guide help in the webshop you can determine your size
- If you do not have a measuring tape at hand you can take your regular size as guidance and exchange the gaff if it does not fit
- Do not buy a smaller size than you usually would (except for if you have an in-between size). Gaffs are made to stabilize and are reinforced in the front
- If you are tucking for the very first time try it at home in the beginning and take it slow to see how it feels like. The feeling can be unusual at first but it should not hurt. If it hurts after all remove the tuck and try again later with less pressure
- Tucking is a well-tried method that is safe when it is being done right
- We do not recommend non-elastic tape - especially not when it is worn over a longer period of time
