Keep On Tuckin'

A few years ago, I ordered a gaff.  I wanted to try one but never had.  Because the company stinks, I never did.  I'll write about that in a month or so.

I don't tuck and avoid skirts that would require it.  I have some tight panties and control garments that can facilitate, um, keeping things in place when needed but I have a few skirts and dresses that are marked "NOT FOR GOING OUT" because they show what should not be shown, unless you're taking an Anthony Weiner selfie.

A few weeks ago, I received an unsolicited e-mail from someone at a company called "TransLingerie."

They are a Spanish company and they offered to send me one of their gaffs gratis.  Two weeks later, I had a small package containing a brand new black gaff.

It looks a trifle... I won't call it scary.  I'll say "uncomfortable."  That's always been a problem with gaffs.  I don't like the idea of thongs and all of the ones I've seen are thongs or thong-y.

I tried it on and it does hold well and it, alas, does do what thongs do.

I will give it a test next time I'm going out.  I'm not sure if I'll give it a trial-by-fire (like, wear it with a Really Tight dress I bought in New York last time I was up there) but I will give it a try and report here.


  1. For the benefit of all who might need to use such a device, do remember to do as sumo wrestlers do; put the boys back up the inguinal canal each descended through way back when. Makes tucking way more comfortable.

  2. I am curious what your report will be Meg, as I have tried one or two and have hated them! So good tuck! (ha-ha)

  3. Meg -

    There is a trick to tucking and being comfortable. But even when you know it (it's learned by trial and error), it is a little clumsy - especially immediately after getting out of the shower.

    Knowing how to tuck gave me a greater number of wardrobe choices - including wearing leggings, something I'd never do without a good tuck. The other day, I went into NYC with a female friend and we were discussing how I hide my equipment so well, and I described the mechanics of tucking. We were in a situation where both of us felt comfortable with me showing her a flat front (and not my equipment) by me pulling up my skirt, showing my tights and equipment tucked down into place, hidden by panties. She was surprised that I could have a flat front.

    BTW - Halle identified how one can make a good tuck comfortable....



My day is brighter when I hear from my friends!
