I'm hoping to get the 983 style from underworks, i'm a 37 size but i'm wondering if maybe the large would be a tad to big on me, should I stick with the large or go for the medium?

Anyone know where I can buy a binder in Southern California (hopefully the SF Valley) to flatten some 36DD's?
The Ace bandages keep slipping because I tend to move around a lot.

Hey guys, I'm looking for some advice. I'm a 32E, or a 34DD depending on the brand. I really want to crossplay but honestly, I don't want to waste so much money on everything I'll need if it's not going to work and be believable!
So really, I want to know how 'real' I can make myself look with binding? I personally think I'd buy a binder (considering T-Kingdom binders?) as the other methods don't exactly appeal to me, but if a different method would work better then I'd be willing to try.
I know it's hard to say if it'll be believable or not without me trying, but like I said I don't want to pay for a binder if it's only going to take me down a few cup sizes and I'll still have very obvious curves. I'm not expecting miracles, but the extent of the binding is what I'd like to know.
If anyone has any experience binding at this size and can tell me how realistic it can look, I'd really appreciate it!

This
is what convinced me to get a Tri-Top binder. Check it out.

I have a quick question on binding, can you sort of make a cotton bewb corset?
I know people make them out of tall pieces of elastic and lace them up and wear them, and that they work really well.
I was just wondering would one out of a cotton material work or would it stretch too much after a few hours?

The problem is that it won't stretch and you won't be able to breathe and/or it will just fall down. Real corsets push breasts upward or do nothing to them - and many corsets do little or nothing to the rib cage - even in tight-lacing the upper rib cage is not being pressed in.

Elastic is used because it's a material that stretches so that you can breathe, but not TOO much.

A corset pushes the ladies up and offers great support. (I have to wear one for the Faire.) If it's made correctly to fit you, it creates the hour glass shape comfortably so you don't hurt yourself.

I'm a 36DD, and the tri-top binder took them down to B's at the max. I was skeptical about it at first, too, but I took a risk. I'm glad I did. Bewbs disappeared.

Pic for evidence.

And I somehow ripped the tag off, so now I have to figure out how to properly wash the binder without ruining it. Any tips?

I'd do cold water wash and lay out flat to dry.

Okay so I'm pretty convinced by the Tri-Top binder! I now have a question about the packaging - when it's sent to you, does anywhere on the packaging state what's inside?
My parents would certainly not approve of me buying one, so I'd rather avoid them knowing!

Nope, they state on their website that they don't do that. I doubt they have changed that way of doing things since they sell many things like that as well as medical garments that would "embarrass" some people.

Hey guys, I hope its ok to ask this here

Im about to start a modern dance class in a few months and I had a couple of questions about binders

Ive always wanted to get a binder, just to wear around, because by breasts are a little on the big side and have a smaller waist so its hard to find Bras that fit me well, and I like to have them tamed a little bit, but now since im going to start dancing again I have the perfect excuse to get one, itll be my first one so I will be getting the velcro kind


1.) Are T-Kingdom binders effective for support while dancing/playing sports?

2.) I know there are health risks for using ace bandages, but are there health risks for using Brest binders for sports?

3.) I have exercise induced asthma, can anyone tell me what its like to wear a binder with asthma, if it makes attacks worse, or triggers them more often?
