Alternatives to Tucking


Pixie

Recommended Posts

So we had a testicular torsion problem several years ago (SUPER painful, I pray none of you ever have to go through that) and the "fix" is to stitch the testicle to the inner divider cartilage in the scrotum so it can't move and twist itself. 
An unexpected side effect is that cuz of this stitching we find we can't tuck that one... 

 

So are there any alternatives other than tight panties and spandex bloomers/swimsuit bottoms to lessen a bulge? Is there like a cup that's low profile instead of the common "more bulge to show" design?

I am afraid that since you have ruled out the tight panties, that you are limiting yourself to outer clothing for countering the bulge.  Full skirts, A-Line dresses, empire waist dresses and all, are not the sexy stuff of Trans dreams, but they will work to keep your privates private in the best of circumstances.  I am post-op and still prefer those to "sexy" tight fitting clothing.  The other advice I can hit you with is that really you will not be "read" on the basis of what is showing between your thighs since some Cis women and post op Trans need sanitary pads for sanitary reasons that create an unfeminine "bulge" and I have never in 10 or 15 years had a problem.  Tucking is supposed to be a "rite of passage" but it is not really necessary once cross dressing ceases to stimulate erotic reactions.

I have a gaff panty (well, two really) that acts kind of like an athletic supporter. It was $12.99 on Amazon. (LINK). Heck, I'd give you mine to try. What am I going to do with it?

 

Basically, it's a cup design that mimics the flat front of a female pelvis with a little "dimple" in the bottom to simulate the vagina. I was always rubbish with tucking, but those got me through.

I appreciate the thought, but my testicles and I parted company a little over a year ago and I couldn't tell you what they're up to today. Your description still had me wincing though. That sounds positively ghastly. The idea of "stitching" anything down there was not a calming thought.

 

Hugs!

I didn't mean to "rule out"- but more asking if there was anything more/better than just that- cuz that's like the only option we've found so far. I was just curious if there was anything else as an alternative to just that. 
I HAVE found that a size or two smaller than I _should_ wear is good for a few hours or so, and if it's like a swimsuit bottom as panties, it seems to mostly do the trick, save for the closest fitting stuff- but you know short of being able to cut it off entirely, what else can we do? lol 

Thanks for the tip about the pads, though. I hadn't thought about those.

Have you looked into dance belts.  There are many styles to choose from.

I had not - didn't know about. Looking at some now, that could be a good option! Thank you! :D

Hello Pixie!

Well.....basically I never tuck anymore. I wear more dresses dress jeans and leggings these days and don’t have a problem.  I do wear a brief panty, exclusively the Bali Skimp Skamp brand.... love the fit and adore the colors!
I also wear the Hanes Leg Boost control top or shaper panty pantyhose. Combined together they provide a really smooth look and is very very comfortable! This gives me a finished look and makes ease of movement with my legs so much more natural!.... as in walking and sitting with my legs crossed. So very natural feeling! Expirement and try new ways. Hope this helps!.

      Huge congrats on taking this step, Holly!!! 🎉🎉🎉   I'll admit I have very little experience with this particular process (yet!), although I have looked into it for gender-unrelated reasons. FWIW, My impression is that name changes tend to be so routine (ex: marriage, dissociating from a bad father, forcing a preferred nickname like "Bob" instead of "Robert", etc...) that the whole judge thing is usually more of a formality. My (novice?) understanding is they mainly just want to prevent anyone from trying to make cheap, obvious attempts at dodging debts or warrants. If you're even bothering to apply to change your name from a masculine one to a feminine one, well, chances are you're a legit transgender person, because, well, how often do cis people try to put in an application like that?   And if you're still concerned, then consider this...   A certain cisgendered man, named Vincent Furnier, legally changed his first name to "Alice" all the way back in the 1970's (Just think how LGBT+ was perceived way back then). His new last name? "Cooper". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alice_Cooper   I absolutely understand your worry and apprehension. But girl, for what it's worth, I don't think you have need to worry. FWIW, I personally think a "no" is highly unlikely, and on the super-off-chance it were to occur, I have a hard time imagining that an appeal wouldn't overturn it.   Girl, You've got this! 💖     I love this story! 😄

      Warm weather, getting out the bike and just riding. working on the car or truck or something outside. Spring fashions, shorts, skirts, and dresses. actually being able to exercise is one thing too.   Kymmie

      Well, It does initiate some permanent changes.  So… For me it was an "are you really serious about this?" moment.

      Well all my new to meet friends, I felt like starting something crazy so here goes... I'm a pessimist, I have always looked at the worst case scenario in any situation. How many times did being a pessimist work out or not work out for you?  Now not to be biased all passivists are more than welcomed to post your  side and your views, hmmmm   who will be first?

      Hi Linda Marie, nice to meet you, and thank you for your inspiring story.     I just don't understand this at all. What is there to hate? The so-called deception? Or is it just straight-up transphobia? You don't need to answer these questions if they're too personal btw, I just feel the need to say them.   You are a brave woman. Thanks so much for sharing.

      Great production on some of Drake's stuff, but I prefer Kendrick. This one never gets old.      
    • Betty K
      I think this will probably happen with us too. I can't imagine she'll disown me for it! And maybe it'll actually make it easier for us to be friends in a way. I hope so.

      Thank you so much for sharing that. "Accept the outcome".  That is incredibly wise. Oh, and welcome from a newbie as well.

      Hi, and that is not a rude question, actually a very good and validated question. I will be brief  and to the point. I have 2 children, Both were in early to mid teens, my wife and I married 24 years at the time I came out. It went bad!! Not well, screaming, crying, saying I lied to them all this time. What saved our relationship was really just me. Everything I had done for them those first 24 years. It was not easy and didn't happen over night. Wife had to go to counseling to learn about my gender dysphoria. That helped tremendously.   My son never took it well. Still hates me to this day. Daughter is just fine with it. Wife still loves me. She even buys me Linda Stuff.  I have no advice to those just coming out except to accept the out come.  I expected the worse and was prepared for it, that also helped a lot.
