What does taking care of yourself mean? I often hear that it means taking care of your appearance, taking care of your physical health, taking care of your mental health, but in my daughter's case it also meant taking care of practicing tucking safely.
But first, what exactly is "tucking"?
Tucking is a technique where a transgender person hides the penis and testicles so that they are not visible under clothing.
When I started to educate myself on the subject, I quickly realized that it was not that easy and that there are several methods, some of which are dangerous to your health. I am referring to using a tape to hide the penis between the legs. Social media educates us about this kind of practice: it is painful, uncomfortable, difficult to remove and not easy to go to the bathroom.
And so, I looked for a solution for my daughter Lyam.
In an ideal world, Lyam wanted the panties to do the job. She didn't want to use a tape nor to use a gaff. No constraint she said.
“Disappointed with what I could find on the market, I decided to make some panties myself with Lyam. Then, as she experienced immediate benefits to her body, comfort and appearance, the idea of sharing it with others grew in my head. "
And that's exactly why I created the FIT4U Solutions panties. So that my daughter Lyam could have a safe solution… thus the “safe tucking” appeared in Lyam's life with a choice of compression according to her activities.
Taking care of yourself for my daughter is therefore possible with the practice of safe tucking.
It doesn't matter what people say: your thoughts, feelings and opinions are valid; it's the very first place to start taking care of yourself. So, don't let anyone change who you are.
