When I was young, I would think about the things I thought I would need to be beautiful. A gorgeous wig, makeup, lingerie, a dress, and heels were always on the list. As I grew older, I started to think about the things I needed to… ah, minimize or downplay. Things like my adam’s apple, or my broad shoulders for example. I thought if I ever had the courage to go out en femme, surely something like that would give me away.
Once I realized I would never pass, and that there was no such thing as passing anyway, I stopped worrying about things that would “give me away”.
Although I no longer am concerned about being clocked, I still strive to look as amazing as possible. Over the last year I had added breast forms and Jolie Thigh Pads from The Breast Form Store to my closet. For years I wanted to be as… authentic as possible, but seeing what forms and pads can do for my shape, I wonder why I waited so long. I mean, look at my figure here.
I have forms that boost my bust, pads that give my figure shape, but besides a tight pair of panties and stockings, nothing to really, uh, help with my feminine flaw. I have gotten a few emails asking about tucking and gaffs but I never have tried a gaff before.
What is a gaff? Basically it’s an undergarment that is designed to flatten out a penis and testicles to create a smooth appearance. Usually a gaff is styled like a thong.
Thanks to the generosity of The Breast Form Store, I have been sent a variety of styles to review and over the past few days I have been trying them and I’d love to share my thoughts on them.
The Breast Form store has a good selection to choose from, and I’ll be reviewing the Divine Collection and the Gold Seal Collection.
We are likely going into TMI territory here, so proceed with caution.
Wearing a gaff is not a magic garment that will automatically flatten out your genitals. You need to tuck. Tucking is basically pushing your genitals between your legs, and usually reaching around to pull them back and then using a gaff to hold them there.
That sounds like it hurts.
But it doesn’t. If it hurts then you are doing it wrong. Is it uncomfortable? Well, no, but you definitely feel it. Both of these gaffs do a remarkably effective job of holding things in place.
I have worn these gaffs over the past four days doing normal everyday things. Walking, going up and down stairs, sitting, you know, normal things. The gaffs kept everything in place. I got used to where things were. Again, if you feel any sort of pain, then stop and readjust.
Most gaffs are thongs. Thongs are amazing when it comes to reducing panty lines in skirts and dresses so when I dress I wear thongs exclusively.
I have thongs that are made for boys, things that are made for girls, and thongs made for boys that look like thongs that are made for girls. These gaffs are a new thing altogether in terms of the front panel. Thongs for boys have extra fabric in the front. Thongs for girls tend to be narrower in the front. These gaffs have a wide front panel to make sure that everything is secure. No matter how much I moved, I never needed to readjust and not once did I fall out.
I also liked that the gusset was wide enough. The gusset is the fabric of a panty that is between the front and the back, basically the part that goes between your legs. Since this is where you would tuck your parts, the gusset needs to be able to secure everything in order to prevent you from sliding or falling out. Most panties and thongs are not designed to tuck, so the gaffs have a huge advantage here.
So, they functioned well. They were well designed and did the trick in terms of keeping things where I put them. But how effective were they?
I love leggings and I thought that this was a perfect excuse to wear them for a few days in boy mode. Normally my anatomy is noticeable when I wear them, but the gaffs, along with tucking, created a very smooth shape. I was impressed with how effective they were.
I did notice a few differences between the styles.
I was sent two styles of the Divine collection. One style was the thong, the other a tanga. A tanga panty is not a thong, but it does not cover as much in the back as a traditional panty does. I found that both the thong and tanga style were pretty similar in terms of comfort and tucking. Both were equally effective in terms of keeping everything in place. The Divine’s front panel is longer than the Gold Seal which made tucking easier as there was more fabric to push things down.
The Divine style also has a small pocket should you wish to insert a silicone vagina.
The Gold Seal style has a shorter front panel compared to the Divine style, but a slightly wider gusset. Overall the Gold Seal style is smaller and tighter than the Divine style. It took a little longer to get used to this gaff compared to the Divine style. Since the front panel is shorter, tucking required a little more effort, however since the gaff is smaller compared to the Divine, and the gusset is wider, I felt that the Gold Seal kept things in place better and provided a smoother effect.
Both gaffs are wonderful and I would recommend either one. Ultimately I prefer the Gold Seal because it provides a smoother, flatter look, but the Divine is more comfortable. As a girl who prefers stilettos to flats, I am more than happy to forgo comfort over style.
I used to think that I didn’t NEED a gaff. And no one NEEDS a gaff. I didn’t think a gaff could do what a pair of panties or tights could do, but I was very wrong.
Thank you to The Breast Form Store for providing these gaffs for review! I am excited to include them in my wardrobe.
