Choosing A Gaff

Whether it’s your first or 100th time buying a gaff, it’s important to remember, not all of our gaff styles will fit every body. Gaffs are technical garments that fit best when body shape is taken into consideration before making a style choice. Here’s a little guide to the best gaff choice for different body shapes! (Remember! These are just suggestions! You are welcome to purchase any style you like!) 


There are two different things to know about your body before making a choice: “How round is your bum?” and “What shape are your hips?” We know there are just as many different hip and bum shapes as beautiful people in the universe. But to make it a little simpler, we’ve organized it with three general bum shapes (very round, slightly round, not round) and three general hip shapes (triangle, rectangle, inverted triangle).

One special note, though: If you are someone with a longer torso, we would not recommend the hipster. It is designed with a very low rise and so may end up being too short front to back.
