I wear my hair tied back under my wig. however it leaves a very visible (to me) bump. I never see that in others. Is there a trick I don't know of?

I use a large metal clip like this but put it in upside down. Then I lift the pony up and tuck it under the wig. Because the clip is so wide it sort flattens the hair against my head instead of making a bump like a pony would

I use a wig cap ($.99 for 2 pieces, in any hair supply store). I like it cause it feels comfortable, clip the wig into the cap so it stays in place and keeps the hair cover well, without bumps.
Materials vary. I like thin stocking material.

I pin it down. I have thick curly hair and yeah it’s annoying lol.
And I wear this velvet band with a cap sewn into it. Best invention ever but in the summer I don’t wear a wig I wear bandanas or snoods since it gets too hot.

I tried the stocking caps and my head apparently is too big lol the cap would bunch up in the back and by the end of the day it will be all balled up in the back of the inside of the shaitel

Make a tight low pony at the nape of your neck. Pull the ponytail up and pin it down flat to the top of your head. Then use another one to pin the end of the ponytail down too.

Had I known earlier about this clip it would've
been a lot easier for me to manage my hair . I Had same problem as OP , it annoyed me so much to the point that I went to someone to cut my hair short short so I should get rid of the pony tale . I'm regretting it 100 times now since comfortable wise it's gotten so much worse . Now I'm already thinking of shaving and then restart to grow it back.

Does the cap hold up with long hair ? I once tried it and my hair was to thick for the cap to hold it together.

I have extremely thick hair. I don't think the clip above will be able to hold all of it.

Cutting shorter isn't an option because it makes things harder having short hair sticking out of my tichel in all directions

I should try this. I just thought there was an easy neat trick I just didn't know about :-)

Make very low pigtails and crisscross them upward on your head and pin down with these flat clips
You can also try a cornbraid and tuck the end underor over and fasten with a clip

I tried everything on this thread and nothing worked except thinning it.

I have very long ( to my waist) thick hair. I put it in two braids and pin up with barrettes

These are 4 inches for thick hair.

I wear a kippah fall and my own hair blends with the wig. It’s amazing in the summer because I pull all the hair (my own and the fall) together into the same pony. And it’s a very thin piece. I barely feel it.
