How to Tuck with Tucking Underwear

For anyone interested in wearing feminine garments, such as dresses, skirts or other tight women's clothing, it's important to discuss the topic of tucking. Tucking creates the illusion of a smooth front and can be accomplished in a variety of ways depending on the occasion. From tight panty hose to strong tape, tucking techniques can vary and it seems everyone has a favorite way to create that flat look below the belt.

It's important to say that flattening your front is a choice and not required to feel or look feminine. For many, tucking helps to reduce dysphoria and for others, it's a matter of feeling good in a body contouring piece of clothing. Whether you choose to tuck or not is your choice and yours alone. We want to be able to offer a wide variety of tucking underwear that is best for you.

Tucking underwear or a "gaff" is a specialty garment sold by En Femme. We have been designing and perfecting tucking underwear for over 20 years. Tucking underwear is designed in a way that keeps you tucked for a longer period of time so you can look your most feminine. It is a great option if you plan to stay tucked throughout the day or are wearing very tight or revealing clothing. Tucking garments hold your tuck in place, they do not create a tuck. Learning to tuck for your body is an important step to ensure that the tucking garment performs as intended.

Styles can have a thong back or a "briefer" style back but what they both have in common is a strong front panel of fabric meant to hold your tuck in position. In the case of tucking, practice makes perfect and the product will only work as well as your ability to effectively tuck. Depending on how long you want to stay tucked, some styles of tucking underwear are designed for short term wear (a few hours) to all day comfort wear.

How to Ready Yourself for Tucking Underwear

There are a variety of ways to tuck but two ways are outlined here so that your tucking will be more effective:

1. The Simple Method - If you bought tucking underwear to just make your front area more flat but you are not going to be super critical about your “flatness factor,” then all you need to do is pull the tucking underwear up to your thighs, push back your genitals with one hand and pull the underwear up with the other hand. Pull the underwear up to your waist and everything will be tighter and flatter. If you are lucky, the construction on the underwear may rearrange you automatically so that it is all super flat. For the simple method, briefer style tucking underwear is a better style to consider as it has more fabric to work with and offers additional compression. While you may not achieve complete flatness, this method may be the only way for you to tuck.

2. The “Rearrangement” or Inguinal Method – To achieve the smoothest outline you need a good tucking underwear design with a strong fabric plus the need to reposition your genitals for optimal smoothness. Both thong and briefer styles will work to hold your tuck.

Step 1: Move your testicles to the front

Basically, you need to move your testicles to the front and position your penis flat underneath so that you can achieve the flattest look. Sounds scary, right? Well it can be at first. Here’s the 411 on moving your testicles “up front” into the cavity above them:

A. Before we start, get your tucking underwear in position. Move it up your thighs, right below your crotch area. You can lie down or stand for the next steps.

B. Above your testicles, is an empty cavity. The testicles descended from this cavity soon after you were born, called the inguinal canals. For some, the cavity fits the testicles well, where for others, the testicles no longer fit. You will have to determine how your anatomy fits together before moving to the next step - use caution as you determine how your testicles fit into the cavity. Do not force anything during this step. If you experience pain or discomfort, STOP. 

C. If you are ready, you now need to gently push your testicles up into this cavity. It’s scary at first, but believe me, it gets easier after you do it two or three times. They will end up located right behind your pubic bone area. If you find you cannot complete this step, the first method, or simple method, will be best for you and your anatomy.

Step 2: Flatten your penis underneath

A. Now that you have your testicles up front, lightly hold them in place with one hand. With the other and you need to make your penis flat. If you are flexible enough, it is much better to reach behind, and grab to pull the penis flat between the legs. If you are not so flexible, then push the penis back flat as you can.

B. Once you have your penis pushed or pulled back, let go of your testicles and use that hand to bring the gaff up, while holding the penis flat with the other hand. Sometimes crossing your legs as you perform this steps helps.

C. Now bring the underwear up hold everything tight to the body with the one hand while letting go with the other hand (that was holding the area from behind). If you have a thong design, pull the thong from the back, making the area between your legs (and the penis) tighter and flatter.

D. While holding the "flattened area" tight, bring up the sides of the underwear fully over your hips

Step 3: Adjustment & perfecting the tuck

Hopefully, everything is quite flat and feels tight to the body. Now is your opportunity to perfect the look and tuck. You can make the tuck tighter by pulling a thong back style back tighter. Also, make sure that you have the underwear positioned correctly by pulling the thong more to the back so that the front panel is a few inches under the belly button.

TIP: Many people initially get the tucking underwear on the body positioned too far forward and think that their tuck is not flat enough. They don't realize that they need to shift the full garment further back so that the garment can really tuck tightly. To shift if backward, gently pull at the thong in the back and hold the tucked area tight while shifting the garment back (so everything stays tight and just gets tighter and flatter!). The front of the gaff should have a strong tension from your adjustment and feel tight enough in front to hold everything in place. If you are wearing a briefer design, ensure the fit is tight and pulled over the top of the hip bones or as close to the top as possible.

Now you should have a flat front area! If you don’t think it is flat enough, let the underwear down a few inches, while again holding the testicles up in the cavity, re-flatten the penis and pull the gaff up again (it is not unusual to rearrange 2 - 3 times to get it flat and tight to the body)

Take your time getting your tuck and positioning just right. Once you get a nice flat tuck that is holding, tucking underwear can hold that area flat for many hours. You just need to choose how flat you prefer the area, and your overall comfort level. Some styles of our Tucking Underwear offers flexible fit for all day active comfort, while others offer extra compression for a flatter appearance, but may be more suitable for shorter duration usage.

TIP 1-Erections: While this is normal for many, keeping everything soft and unaroused is best when wearing tucking underwear.

TIP 2-Bathroom: Yes, you will need to undo everything to go to the bathroom. Just practice a few times and you can re-arrange your genitals in a snap to get your underwear back on so your back to looking your most feminine right away!

    Can’t wait to buy a gaff and try the suggested method of having that smooth feminine look !

  • Fasim

    I am yet to experiment panty gaff.
    I am little worried about privacy since I am living in Saudi Arabia.
    I have an address with Aramex in America for collection of products and further to receive it in saudi. It will be sent as panty gaff or as a simple panty.
