Fit Guide - How to Measure                 Fit Guide - How to Measure
Girth: Measure from one shoulder, around the body vertically, through the legs and back to the same shoulder. Make sure you are standing tall. If your measuring tape is not long enough, you can use a piece of string and then measure that.  
Chest/Bust: Measure around the fullest part of the chest, with arms relaxed down at sides and without a bra. Keep the measuring tape parallel to the floor.
Ribs/Underbust: Around your ribcage where your bra band sits. Measure on the exhale.  
Waist: Measure around natural waistline, which appears as a crease when bending to one side.
 High Hip: Measure just over the hip bones, where you would wear a low rise bottom.
Low Hip: Measure around fullest part of the body including the butt with feet together. Keep the measuring tape parallel to the floor.
Thigh: Measure 3 inches down from the pubis around the leg circumference. 
Inseam: Measure from inside crotch seam to the desired length.
 Rise: You don't need to leave a rise measurement if you want it to look like the listing photos!
  • Lay a high waist item or bodysuit flat. Measure vertically from the crotch to waistband while front and back waistbands are touching, to the desired rise of your new piece.
  • Take the measuring tape through the legs, holding the end on the back where the waistband will sit. Measure up the stomach to where the desired waistband will sit. Divide this by 2.
Average Rise Measurements
Low rise- 8''-10''
Medium Rise- 11''-13''
High Rise-  14''-17''
Extra High Rise- 18''-30''

Must Have!!

I absolutely love this gaff, it’s comfortable, it fits great and most importantly to me it gives me a flat front and makes me feel like a beautiful woman.

Excellent business, great product

I am a transfem early in transition and desperately want to feel confident in hyperfem clothing. Thanks Origami for helping me get way closer to that goal!

I was overjoyed to find Origami after a couple google searches—as if shopping online for trans/GNC clothing is a totally normalized part of our culture! I immediately gravitated towards this "Mesh Gaff Thong." I didn't know anything about sizing or buying fem clothes in general, so I sent a message through the "Contact" function. Rae emailed back 3 business days later and responded to my confusions about the exact function of the thong, and they walked me through taking my measurements.

I received a notification that my thong was in the mail 18 business days (<4 weeks) after I placed the order. I received it 2 business days later (I'm in Massachusetts, so very close to Montreal).

I thought the thong had been mis-manufactured because it was asymmetrical and I couldn't fit my junk into it, so I reached out. Tristan emailed back within a day and helped me figure out that I had been attempting to wear one of the waistbands as the crotch and the crotch as one of the waistbands... When you put the thong on, make sure the tag in the back is facing up! Or just have common sense and wear the widest band as the crotch... *sigh* Tristan made me feel comfortable communicating very explicitly about tucking and all that entails anatomically, which is an experience I hadn't expected to have with a clothing business!

The thong fits great, is comfortable, and holds a tuck! I haven't yet tried doing something very active in it, like dancing. My junk is still very large and hairy which makes tucking painful regardless, but I'll get there!

The only reason I'm knocking off a star is that the seams of the thong are very prominent, so I can see the waistband through my leggings. I would recommend wearing this under shorts or dresses. For leggings, I look forward to working with Rae to design a gaff thong with a seamless wais...


Feels comfortable, very breathable material, and strong compression!

Mesh gaff thong and cheeky

These are both very good gaffs. The cheeky panties are a little uncomfortable because the seams are the softest thing in the world so they press into the butt cheeks uncomfortably. But the thong is very comfortable because the seams don't press into the cheeks and you don't notice them around your groin as much. Overall a very amazing product and would recommend for everyone. I wore both of them for an entire day of work and was fine no pain aside from the uncomfortable seems on the panties.

Just what I was looking for

Great item and nice quality. I have a few other gaffs but was looking for something lighter and more breathable for under my yoga pants and other workout clothes. This was my first order from Origami, and I will be back to look for some other items. Hopefully, a cute swimsuit for summer!
