In this post, I share a cheap packing hack for FTM men that I recently figured out. Most trans men would agree that packing is essential for passing. For many of us, it is also essential for our emotional well-being. That is probably why my post on the best packers for trans men is my top post, every single day.
However, some of us are working on a very limited budget. We can’t all afford to have a constant supply of designer FTM underwear to hold our packers. I have been on a reduced income lately, and I came up with a cheap hack for my packer.
Basically, I am down to just one packer. I had a supply of FTM underwear, with cock rings and ball holders to keep my packer in place. I find this essential, because the thought of having my packer fall out in public just horrifies me.
However, a month ago I realized that all of my underwear was wearing out, and it was time to order more. Only … I just cannot afford it right now. As you can see in my post called “A Guide to Packing Underwear for Trans Men,” it is not horribly expensive. But still, it is an expense that I don’t want right now.
So, what I did was to cut the cock ring out of one of my last remaining underpants. I cut it with a rectangle of the underwear material attached. Now, I can use this same cock ring with any generic cheap underwear. I just use a large safety pin to hold the rectangle of material in place. Within seconds, I am good to go! The best thing about this packing hack is that it is so simple, even I can do it!
Another Advantage of this Packing Hack
This removable packer-holder has another potential advantage. Some FTM guys have their laundry done by mothers or partners. And they may find it a bit embarrassing for those people to see their packer holders. This solves the problem, because of course, you can just remove it before throwing your underwear in the laundry.
Even if you don’t have any specialized FTM underwear to start with, you could improvise this set-up with a piece fabric and a cock ring. For the cock ring, any plastic ring would do the trick, providing it is the right size.
I hope this packing hack is useful for any trans men who are having financial difficulties right now.
Note: If you don’t already have one, you can pick up a packer for a fairly low price, and then use this cheap packing hack!
