I personally recommend the T-Kingdom binders for those fellow ladies who are well gifted with assets that would make the Fifth Hokage proud.

Some are more comfortable them others and each has pros and cons, but worth the investment, and as for myself, I would say that the model I have is actually shockingly quite comfortable, as I wore it practically nearly 13 hours a day for the recent con I went to which was AWA.

I'm in Indiana! You should join our Cosplayers in Indiana thread. ^_^

Have you tried a compression vest or a binder? For larger girls, it's often more effective to go with all-over compression to smooth the whole body contour, rather than just trying to wrap yourself flat.

In that case, maybe you could try the back-support brace method. It gives wider coverage than a regular bandage, and you can buy them at drug stores.

Um, could someone help me?

I've tried ace bandages, but I'm a d-cup so it can only do so much. I'm looking for some way to flatten without buying a vest or brace. I'm cheap ^^;;

Yeah, so I really don't know, but would a sports bra and tape work better? Or something else?

Thankies!

I dunno why no one ever mentions this .. I'll probably post pictures sometime. But my brother bought a compression shirt (like under-armor) for baseball and I had it tucked away in a drawer. So a few weeks before AnimeNEXT I found his compression shirt. I cut off the sleeves and put it on and got my DD chest (I think it's that big -_-; ... ) to like at least an A. And with the proper baggy shirt or so, it looks flat enough to be male.

I bought a new compression shirt a little while ago because my old one was blue and this one is white. I bought for $11 dollars in the male section at Wal-Mart. It's not expensive and it's an easy solution. And comfortable. It sorta hurts my back when I have to wear it for days in a row but it doesn't try to squeeze the life out of you like most bindings. I can post photos of the shirt if anyone wants an example of what I mean. It really is a new and effective way that helps.

Hasn't anyone else tried this???

I have a compression shirt, and a few of us have posted several times about our results, but they tend to get lost in the many pages on this thread, then when new people show up asking the same questions, they don't see our old posts. ^_^

But, I have a results picture from when I first got mine;
http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=865097
now, that's with the shirt pulled tight both times, and I really need to take a newer picture because I'm able to adjust myself and make it more effective. I have gotten flatter with just the compression shirt.

Oooh, awesome. DD That's good. Cause I remember when I first got into wanting to crossplay properly and I couldn't even find a post about compression shirts, except for the expensive ones. Uh, it would be cool if somehow compression shirts got added the original list. But yey for compression shirts. Cheap and easy. xD

Ok, I keep forgetting this for some reason... when you're trying to tape, do you try to move each boob up and out, or down and out?

ok I'm looking at T-Kingdom's selection and I'm wondering if anyone has bought Model 801 from them. I know several people have bought 1700 and have given it good reviews but I'm sort (5'1") and it seems to be a little long...

anyway, any advice would be great

Honey, I'm an E cup, and I use ace bandages. Two of them in fact. What I find works well with them is wrapping the first one somewhat loosely to hold things in place, and the second one tighter to flatten things out. ^_^ it works very well for me.

well, I use that same one, and I've found that you just kind of have to . . . well, adjust yourself, and move things around, to really get flat. XD I'm a DD and I get pretty flat, but when you're anywhere near my size (which it looks like you are) it's going to be impossible to get completely flat without hurting something.
