For many folks, wearing a gender-affirming undergarment like a gaff is important for our identity, comfort, and safety.
Our gaffs have gotten even better! We’ve updated the design of each style and added to the rise for a more flattering and functional fit. These improved styles compress as well as ever and are more comfortable to wear for longer periods of time!
A gaff is a type of undergarment that is designed to compress or flatten the genital area and create a smoother, more streamlined appearance. Gaffs are typically worn by people who were assigned male at birth and who want to create a more feminine silhouette, as well as by transgender women, drag performers, and others who want to create a more gender-affirming appearance.
They are designed to be worn under clothing and can be an effective way to create a more feminine appearance without surgery.
They can be worn with our without "tucking" (see below).
Amongst many other things, gaffs can help folks fit certain clothing designs (like swimwear) in a way that is more comfortable and affirming.
For many trans femme folks, tucking is also important to their safety when out in public.
Gaffs compress the genital tissue in a safe way to make sure you stay healthy while achieving a more flattened front.
It achieves this through a combination of tight-fitting materials and strategic design elements.
Gaffs are typically made from stretchy, breathable materials like nylon or spandex that are designed to be comfortable for extended wear.
When worn, the gaff fits snugly against the body, compressing the genitals and tucking them back between the legs. This creates a smooth, streamlined appearance that can enhance body confidence and facilitate a more gender-affirmation
Gaffs with stretch (such as ours) are safe to wear all day and when exercising. It should never be painful!
These gender-affirming garments help people of all ages, bodies, and genders to feel awesome, and releive dysphoria
You may want something to help you feel safe and affirmed while you work out or swim. You may wear them every day, or just sometimes. There are thousands of reasons that gaffs may make you feel great in your body!
Many transgender women, drag queens, trans femme, and gender non-confirming people choose to use a gaff to make them feel more aligned with their gender and increase their body confidence.
Tucking is the practice of arranging and supporting external genitals between the legs, either by moving the penis and scrotum between the legs and buttocks, or pushing the testes up into their inguinal canals while arranging the penis between the legs.
Either method is fine, although the sliding method is generally thought to be more comfortable.
You can choose a gaff for tucking, or you can wear a gaff without a tuck. Both are valid!
You'll want to wrap the head of your penis with toilet paper or cloth (this is to avoid any spillage or infection). Then slide your testes between your legs and towards your buttocks. Carefully hold your testes in place, and then tuck your penis along the same direction.
Once you’re finished, you’re ready to proceed with pulling up your gaff – making sure to keep everything nice and tight.

Absolutely love this binder! As soon as you put It on you can tell and feel and was handmade with love. Fits great and feels great! Thank you for the best binder I have ever had
Considering i’m so big chested it does wonder to flatten and it fits like a glove, very comfortable considering it’s job. Looks like i’m down to a B cup but i couldn’t imagine anything else doing anymore binding without it being unsafe. Great purchase and worth the wait
These undies are the absolute best. Super light super comfy. The elastic band is the perfect thickness! Really breathable and so freaking cute to wear 🦭
It's super cute, the tuck is solid and pretty comfortable. My personal opinion is that the boyshorts actually offer better compression/tuck than thongs, but of course the thong is better for panty lines if that matters to you. Definitely a high-quality item and continues to prove Origami Customs' place as best in the industry for transfemme underwear.
A really well made pair of boyshorts, custom fit to help me thrive!
I absolutely adore this bralette. It is comfortable and cool and it gives me a level of confidence that I wasn't expecting. I absolutely recommend getting the custom sizing!
Absolutely love my piece! The team was super responsive and made exactly what I wanted. It fits great and is comfortable to wear.
Great made top, extremely easy process and decent shipping for overseas! Breathable but sturdy material that washes easier than anything else like it imo!
I'm new to gaffs, but this does exactly what I was hoping. Doesn't stretch over the day, so it's a consistent result.
Staff is also very friendly.
The material is just the right amount of soft and stretchy that everything fits while still giving a good amount of support for the bits
this was my first time purchasing a binder, and i’m beyond happy with it. the level of compression is great for me (for context, my chest size is 34A and i bought an s), and i’m genuinely shocked by how comfy it is.
As someone with a smaller chest, this binder offers all the compression I need without being overly constricting. I love that Origami makes everything to measure, I can't recommend their products enough!
