"Uh, Tucker," Dad said, and motioned me over to a quieter spot. "Why," he asked very quietly, "are you wearing, uh... those..."
"What?"
He made a gesture towards his chest.
"What?"
He gave me a look that said, 'don't try pulling that shit on me, kid'.
"I'm NOT," I said forcefully while managing to keep my voice mostly down. Then I figured out what he was talking about, and instead of protesting any more, since it wasn't doing any good, I yanked up my T-shirt.
When I pulled it back down, he looked kind of ill.



That was from chapter 140 but it has been getting harder for Tuck to hide his feminizing body for quite some time now. Most people he meets for the first time assume he is a girl.

Should Tuck start wearing a sports bra? Or straping them down?

Also the trial will probably be skeduled quite a time off, so how girlish will Tuck look to the jury by that time?

In Rachel's fanfic, Tuck has decided to be Valerie full-time. There are ways to hide his attributes, but considering his asthma, are they life threatening?

Only if he is dumb enough to try the all too common trick of using elastic bandages. If he does his research, he'll find out that they are a *really* bad idea (they are *designed* to tighten up if things move. Which is exactly what breathing does). Folks have apparently seriously injured themselves using them.

A proper binder is cheaper than the breast forms Val is using. *Much* cheaper. And should not cause any breaything problems at all (it goes on over the *ribcage* which doesn't actually move much for breathing)

Question is, what size cup is Tuck? Could a sports bra or a body shaper tone down his attributes? He might need to visit a store that sells appliances that hide a woman's chest.

It's not like he didn't have anybody who ask for help. I mean, Julia is in the drama classes if I remember well, and those kind of appliances are probably common props (the opposite of falsies), so she could ask around without being suspicious. The other girls ought to have their own resources -- like Debbie found out John sold silicone breast forms, for instance.


Don't call me Shirley. You will surely make me surly.

That's what a "binder" *is*. But they aren't really common even now. There are only two or three places you can order them from.

Sports bras only help a bit. And they *show* thru clothing. Binders are different. Even if they show, it's not obvious what they are.

Body shapers won't help because they are designed to go lower down.

Also, until Tuck's ribs are down healing he can't bind anyway.

At least at school the armor not only protects, it messes up his outline as well.

Binders are a *lot* less common than breast forms.

I hang out on several LJ communities that have both FtMs and MtFs (and have a couple of FtM friends as well).

Theater (as opposed to movie) folk can probably get away with using roll bandages. You can get away with a lot of stuff for a couple hours that is just plain unworkable for an entire day.

I suppose they *are* uncommon, you are right. My point was that Tuck is not without resources regarding how to find one.

But now, rethinking the issue, I see the real problem is not finding somewhere to buy the thing; at the very least, he probably could find it on the Internet, even back in 1997. The problem is realizing such a thing *exists* at all.

As to the healing ribs: Word of God (Ellen) has pointed out that cases take months to go to trial. It might be that by then Tuck's ribs are healed enough to use a binder. On the other hand, Tu-Val's breasts (and overall body shape) will be even more feminine by then.

I was sort of thinking that it was going the other way, Miz Parker keeps reminding Valerie (Tuck) to put her (his) legs together when she (he) was sitting down and other feminine things.

God I hate pronouns.

I think that Ms Parker notices the way Valerie acts more than before now that she know that she not full female. She now tends to look for imperfections.

But it is getting hard to for Tuck to pass as a boy physically and I think also emotionally too. Tuck don't seem to be bothered about people mistaking him for a girl like he use to.

By the way, welcome to the forums.

At the same time she seemed to be worried that Valerie was better than her at things like baking... like maybe she was thinking "I'm a full woman! I should be better than her at this" ...or something.

We don't even know that Tuck wants to be a man in the end... that's one of the many, many, issues that he's been avoiding.

Yes, and with Tuck being very sensitive in the chest, what will his body decide? Will his body go all male/female or stay in between? Only Ellen knows.

I'm sure that Tuck doesn't know what he wants to do about his future (WRT how he presents to the world) Will he present as a 'boy' or will she present as a 'girl' or will there be a continuance of presenting at various times as both?

As far as Tuck's body goes it seems that it is developing as a 'girl' though he will keep the penis. Heh I would too UTIs are a lot less prevalent if you have a gooseneck curve to keep them out!

Of course if you are going to be with a man when presenting as a 'girl' it is wise to warn him that you are not what you appear to be if you happen to have a penis.

Tuck can wear a gaffe that gives him a realistic vagina

I think a gaff can give herm a realistic looking vulva. But a vagina? I don't think so! Nope a vagina is an opening into the body...

I guess this has to do with how Tucky could pass as female. I think one thing 'he' is failing to realize is that his face is looking more feminine even without makeup. He should think about how strangers address him as Ma'am now and start to wonder.

The thing is we seldom really see our own faces. Part of the reason for this is that they are so familiar that we fail to see if they have changed in some way unless we be men and they grow beards! Still it would seem that even men really don't see the subtle day to day changes until their beard starts to go grey.
