I think it's finding what suits you best. I have never got on with boyshorts at all. Not being over there, I won't go into brands but, in general, I have found quality panties better. Obviously womenswear is only designed to cover a small bulge so tucking is really essential.
I tend to wear bikini, hi-leg or full brief dependant on situation, how I am feeling or what I am wearing.
i appreciate the advice as i was having a terrible time tucking and staying in place especially walking they were always slipping out or never in proper place. I will be taking the tips and trying them out in the morning . I was afraid to try tape as hair would be pulled out.
I will be trying the pull from behind and panty method as well as other great advice.
I do have one other question and that is going to gym as i am not allowed to use the other gym so how do i get used to being comfortable in those situations.
I am not really sure where this is headed just now, but it does underscore the need for understanding of what and who Trans people are. The mythology and the fantasy about us needs to be fully bashed out of some heads and replaced with better stuff.
Good news is always welcome news.

Welcome Markjvp, Glad you found this forum. You'll find great support here and many with a similar back story. One benefit you have at your age is time. I put off doing anything about my situation until middle age. You have access to support and knowledge that people my age could never dreamed of way back when! Take advantage of them all.
My Best to you,
One of my psychology professors years ago liked to tell us that most M.D.s did not fully earn the Doctor part of their degrees, and they really should get a degree of Body Mechanic (BM) and I think he may have had it right in this case. The guy knows the physical configuration of the human brain expertly as a technician but his ability to actually reason with his own brain on non technical matters is up for conjecture.
Given his past statements, I have no doubts that what he's alleged to have said is accurate. He is a disgrace and needs to be gone, even before his boss is.
Greetings Markjvp. Your intro was fine. Telling our family, especially at a young age is fraught with peril so I can relate to your story. I am guessing you are about 16 so you still have some time to go before you graduate High School and can move out on your own, or go to college. I know the time seems long, but in reality it's not. Focus on your education as it will sustain you for the rest of your life.
As to starting transition, if that is your goal, a couple years will not make a huge difference. You want to remain at home where you have a roof over your head and meals to eat. Don't do anything rash. Your family may or may not ever get "fixed" as this is their choice to understand. Your choice is to be the best you that you can be. Look around there are other stories like yours here.
This is so good to read that you have found the way to sobriety that suits you. You have so much to be happy and grateful for, especially for the inner strength you posses. Yeah for you! You will get over your shyness and insecurity in due time. I believe in you. Your sponsor sounds like a caring person.
