Comfortable yet snug hammock like 2nd layer inside front panel of organic cotton fleece fabric to provide a bit of padding and coverage for young trans kids. This listing is for one pair of Kiddo size Tuck Buddies underwear.
"I would love to give you a review to share!
My 5.5 year old trans daughter has pretty much always presented as female (as an infant EVERYONE assumed she was a baby girl). Around 5, after transition, she really started noticing her penis more, and complaining about it "bothering" her in all kinds of different ways. There was a lot of "adjustment" in public (like during ballet class; why always during ballet class?!?), which often led to me feeling anxious about her outing herself unintentionally.
When she first tried these undies, she looked up at me, so excited, and literally said "Mama! These fix all my problems!" Now our only problem is keeping them washed; she wants to wear only these now! We are ordering enough to replace all her other pairs, that is how awesome they are!
Thank you so much for making such a thoughtful product for our sensitive, special kiddos ❤️"

Frequently Asked Questions
Unless listed as Ready to Shop, each pair of Tuck Buddies is custom made by me, in my home studio, as it is ordered. Depending on the time of year, supply & shipping delays due to Covid 19, and overall quantity of current orders, your order will be made and shipped within 3 weeks of purchase, usually much sooner. But once in a while, things beyond my control, ie: illness, delayed supply shipments, weather, etc. may cause this 3 week time frame to lengthen. International orders may be subject to customs delays and additional fees that are beyond my control.
Most folks have found Tuck Buddies to be “true to size” - meaning they should fit similarly to your favorite pair of ready to wear leggings or pants. As every body is different, and we all know sizing of ready to wear items can vary widely, size charts with measurements are included as images on each listing. Some folks prefer their tucking underwear quite tight, if this is the case, you may want to size down one size. Returns or exchanges of one pair for sizing issues are welcome, but please be mindful of my time and expense to my small shop, and only order one pair at a time if you’re new to Tuck Buddies and working on figuring out your best fit.
I LOVE finding new, cute fabric colors and prints to liven up the Tuck Buddies line. They nature of the fabric market beast does mean that some prized favorites will eventually be discontinued, so no matter how much stock I buy ahead, I will run out. This is a sad and often frustrating piece to the custom clothing market, but it’s part of the business. Luckily, I always find a new cute print, just around the corner. I do my best to update items as the fabric choices change, but once in a while, I might miss something. If you see a photo of Tuck Buddies in a print or color that doesn’t seem to be available on any current listings, feel free to inquire about it via direct message. I welcome custom fabric requests as well!
Gift wrapping and packaging
Tuck Buddies packaging is discrete - a solid color mailer, only including my name and “TB” with our PO Box on the return address.
If you’d like your order gift wrapped, add that option at check out and the outer packaging will be the same, but inside the aqua blue mailer, your gift will be wrapped in tissue with a decorative Tuck Buddies sticker and placed in a beautiful and reusable organza gift bag.
How do Tuck Buddies work?
Tuck Buddies are made with an inner liner in the front crotch area. This piece is made of a medium weight organic sweatshirt fabric and is thicker and has less stretch than the outer fabric. It’s also cut slightly smaller and only attached in the back & front, effictively making a sort of snug fabric hammock for genitals to rest in, closer to the body than ready to wear underwear. If you choose to tuck genitals, you can achieve an ever smoother look, but even without tucking, most folks find Tuck Buddies to help smooth and camouflage their bulge significantly, while still offering a high level of comfort.
