Hipster underwear made by hand for Trans women (or anyone with a penis wanting a feminine cut undie). Perfect for breathable, comfortable everyday use. Mesh is the fabric with the highest compression or "tuck" of all my options for a flatter front.

  • Double lined front for flattening
  • Middle section is slightly wider than traditional undies
  • Hipster cut, moderate back coverage. 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.
  • Stretch mesh holds the body tight, made to make you feel safe and secure with a smooth, no seam silhouette.
  • Mesh is semisheer (not completely see-through) with strong hold

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!

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 (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: 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.

                  CUSTOM SIZING IS ALWAYS FREE!

                  Here at Origami Customs, we make custom clothing for people of any size, shape, age, ability, and gender expression. Each item is made to order and all custom adjustments are FREE to support accessibility.

                  This means that people who have unique body types or are limited by conventional size scales will be able to have completely customized, handmade garments at no extra cost.

                  Let us walk you through how to take your measurements in our gender-neutral fit guide! 


                  Standard Sizes

                  All sizing in inches


                   

                  Custom Sizing

                  We encourage you to send your measurements for a customized fit.  Please measure all that apply to your purchase IN INCHES and send in the "custom measurements" box 
                  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. Keep  the tape comfortably snug but not tight, which will include measuring
                  the space between the chest tissue. Do not squeeze the chest tissue flat.
                  Ribs/Underbust: Around your ribcage where a 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.
                          
                             
                  When taking your underbust measurements, make sure to measure under the breast tissue
                   

                  What to Measure

                  Think of everywhere your piece will touch on your body
                  .
                  Bodysuits: Chest, ribs, waist, high hip, low hip, girth
                  Bras, Harnesses: Chest, ribs. Do not send your bra size
                  Low Rise Bottoms: High hip, low hip
                  Binders: Chest, ribs, waist (measure unclothed)
                  Gaffs:
                      High Rise: Waist, high hip, low hip
                      Thong, Cheeky, Hipster: High hip
                      Boyshort: High hip, low hip

                  We ship internationally.

                  For a shipping quote, please add all your items to your cart to see the accurate shipping options. Canada Post transfers your package to regular mail in the delivery country (such as USPS). Shipping times are below. 

                  Occasionally, items do get held or checked by customs, as is normal for international shipping. We can not be held responsible for these inconsistencies, and we appreciate your understanding.

                  Custom and duties fees are not included in our pricing and are the sole responsibility of the buyer.If a package is not picked up, or the duty is not paid and it is returned to us, we will ask you to cover re-shipping fees if you wish to have it re-sent.

                  TURNAROUND TIME

                  The current wait period is 2-4 weeks, before shipping. This is because we are a small team, and each piece is handmade specifically for you.

                  We handmake each piece individually in Montreal, and offer free custom sizing!

                  Most brands can produce quickly in facotories overseas- but we ensure each piece is carefully made to fit you perfectly, and that takes a bit longer!

                  Make sure you're signed up for our mailing list to get notified when our wait time changes!

                  Custom sized items do not take longer to produce than standard sized items.

                  LOCAL PICKUP

                  At checkout you can choose to pick up your order instead of having it shipped. Generally, we are available for pickups on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 11am - 6pm. You’ll receive an email once your order is ready to be picked up. Please reply to the confirmation email to schedule a pickup time. We are located at 5425 Rue de Bordeaux.

                  SIZING

                  We always suggest ordering your items custom sized rather than selecting a standard size. Custom sizing is always free! You can select "Free Custom Size" when adding an item to your cart and enter your measurements in the box provided so we can make your order specifically tailored to you! Please see our Fit Guide for help on how to take your measurements.

                  Standard sized items are not eligible for our alterations policy. If you would like your item in a standard size, please refer to our size chart for more information.

                   

                  MODIFICATIONS

                  We can offer some modifications to our styles, which may come with added costs. Please note that any alterations to something other than sizing will make your item final sale and will not be eligible for our alteration services. Style modifications mean that we can’t guarantee the fit of your item the way we can with the patterns we have developed.

                  If you have specific accessibility needs, please reach out so we can do what we can to make your item work for you!

                  We aren’t currently offering custom projects for new designs and styles, and we are not taking requests for discontinued items.

                   

                  RETURNS

                  We do not accept returns due to a change of mind or if you have purchased the wrong standard size, so please choose carefully. Our unique size chart is posted and it is the buyer's responsibility to check their measurements and message us with any questions BEFORE purchasing.

                  Only custom sized items are eligible for our alterations policy. Custom sized items are eligible for a free alteration if the fit is off by more than an inch (due to the fluctuation of stretch garments). Each item that we ship is checked for accuracy to the measurements provided in your order.

                  If you believe there is a manufacturing error, please reach out to us within 7 days of receiving your order so we can investigate! If we determine an alteration is necessary, we will ask that you send the item back to us to make the adjustment.

                  Any modifications to an item other than sizing (ex. style modifications) will make it final sale and will not be eligible for our alteration services.

                  All returns must arrive to us in the same condition they were received in. For sanitary reasons and our health safety, if you have worn your item, please wash and dry it before returning it. We will not accept a return/alteration on a damaged or unwashed piece, and your piece will be donated.

                  Sale and Ready to Ship items are final sale.

                  Items received through Point of Pride or other community programs are exempt from exchanges or returns.

                   

                  CANCELLATIONS

                  We accept cancellations within one week of purchase.

                   

                  FABRICS

                  When you place an order, the fabrics may not be the same as previous orders. We choose to source fabric from deadstock or pre-made sources rather than ordering fabric to be made new for me. In this way, We reduce our ecological impact by using industry "waste" and not creating any new materials. We apologize that there may be slight differences between orders.

                  For all fabrics, wash in cold water and hang to dry. For swimwear, rinse in fresh water after every use and dry flat in the shade. Lingerie (anything with straps) should be hand washed and hung to dry.

                  Bamboo has been washed and preshrunk.

                  DISCRETION

                  All our transactions and delivery methods are confidential and discreet.

                  For legal purposes, the name “Origami Customs” and address of our company will be on the shipping label, but there are no external logos. There will also be the recipient’s information, with your name provided at checkout for the shipping and your postal address. This can be changed if it might be an issue.

                  Orders outside of Canada will have a customs box listing the contents of your package. It will read as follows: The word "clothing" and the value. It will not list what specific type of clothing is in the order. Packages within Canada do not have a contents description

                  Confirmation emails and SMS will be sent with the name used to create your account.

                  All our orders are shipped in soft mailers made of recycled plastic. They’re either black or green.

                   

                  ETHICS

                  Origami Customs is a sustainable clothing brand. Being an ethical and sustainable fashion brand means that we are focused on the common good, instead of just profits. It means that we see ourselves as part of an ecosystem, where we can have a positive impact. It means that we are committed to choosing the most ethical solution, every time. And It means that we will constantly be growing and striving to do even better.

                  We are partnered with Point of Pride to offer free gaffs to trans people who are facing barriers via their Free Transfemme Shapewear Program. It is open to anyone in the world.

                  1% of total yearly sales plus donations every month are made to vital organizations in the community.

                  We’ve partnered with many organizations across North America to get necessary, affirming products to people with limited access.

                  We use hyperlocal manufacturing - everything is designed and sewn in Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal by a small team and a partner co-op (no sweatshops here!)

                  We use sustainable fabrics and manufacturing practices, ensuring minimal wastage and shipping. Fabrics are often chosen for their closed-loop manufacturing, or regenerative qualities.

                  By making items to your measurements, for free, we increase the lifespan of your garments, keeping more waste from the landfill.

                  We proudly offer a discount if you are a sex worker or Black, Indigenous, or a Person of Colour. Please message us for your coupon.

                  WHOLESALE

                  We are currently accepting wholesale clients, for both retail stores and NGOs who want to be a part of our community program!

                  Please contact us for more information

                  We’ve come up with a system where you can now select the gusset width on every bottom. Which basically helps let us know how much room we build into any garment.

                  You can now select from:

                  Narrow: “Standard” fit undies, usually found in a “women’s” section.

                  Wide: The way we make all our Wide Front Bamboo undies and Mesh Gaffs already. Room for front bits, tuck or not. Also great if you just need a bit of extra room for innie bits. 

                  Roomy: A bit more than the wide fit- for folks with a bit more down there, or a comfier fit without a tuck.

                  faultless

                  They are incredible. Absoletely comfortable all day. Dry quickly after wash. Completely faultless. The first gaffs I've owned where there isn't "spillage" around the sides. They are a complete miracle product.

                  Amazing Fit.

                  The mesh really flattens everything out. Its nowhere near as tight as I was expecting it to be. It really feels just like normal panties.
