Binding, Packing, Tucking, and Padding

This webpage contains an overview of some do-it-yourself (or non-surgical) options for altering your gender expression.


Binding involves wearing tight clothing, bandages, or compression garments to flatten out your chest.


Packing is a term some people use to describe having a non-flesh penis (sometimes referred to as a packer or a prosthetic penis).


Tucking refers to the practice of hiding the penis* and testicles so they are not visible in tight clothing.


Padding refers to the use of undergarments, breast forms, and foam to create the appearance of larger breasts, hips, and buttocks.
