#1: Your Tuck will last 4 hours when wet, guaranteed
As a trans woman, preparing for the pool or beach can seem daunting. These are usually public spaces where it's not always safe to be outed by a swimsuit malfunction.
That's why I designed the Tuck Kit to be swim-proof, so you can feel confident and enjoy a worry-free tuck that stays in place.
Now, of course, in order to work well, your Tuck Kit has to be applied correctly. Here's how to get that 4-hour tuck for swimming and sunbathing:
Carefully follow the How To Tuck Guide and take your time. Apply at home, or in private someplace where you won't be rushed
Make sure you're shaven, or that you have no more than 2mm of hair. That's about the thickness of two plastic debit/credit cards
Apply your Tuck Kit to clean, towel-dried skin. Ideally, apply after a shower to ensure the area is clean and doesn't have any oils or lotions that could interfere with the Tuck's hold
Get the best fit:
- Start the tuck further down on the front of your body, to give you more product to work with as you pull it back
- Pull the tuck back just slightly tighter than usual, before then setting it down against the skin. This will allow the adhesive layers in the product to contract or squeeze together when they make contact with your body, giving the tuck better grip on your skin.
- If you find that applying lower on the front of your body causes the tuck to peek out of your bikini bottom in the back, trim away the the excess before completing your tuck. Note: when swimming tucked, a slightly higher cut bikini is recommended (but not required) for the best swim-proof tucking results.
Only hit the pool or beach once your tuck has set flat against the skin for 30 minutes. To accelerate this process and help ensure a superior hold for your tuck, you can sit on a warm car seat or gently rub the end of the tuck (at your lower back). The heat from your hand or the car's seat will ensure the adhesive is totally activated
