New Binder Help Please!

So my binder is almost a year old not, how ever it's been put through hell with in that year. As such I'm looking for a new one, one that will last much longer and fit better. At the moment I'm looking at the men's "Ultimate Chest Binder Tank". The reviews seemed to be good.

I'm a 36-38 stuck between a C/D, just about all my cosplays are crossplay. Thus why I want something that will hold up much better. I wasn't sure if there was another one that might be better or not.

Also I was wondering the shipping time for underworks. As I can't get it now since I'm having to spend a good bit on wig at the moment, that way it gets here in time and I can style it. So I'll be rather broke until April for cosplay. I'm in middle Georgia, by the way. :P

I have their Tri-tops and I'm a 36F or G depending on the bra so it's the best coverage I've ever had. I paid to have it shipped in 3 days but they are US based so you will get it quickly. (It comes from Florida)

Ah, thank you so much! I looked at the Tri-tops, but I wasn't sure just how far it would come down on me. I'm just barley 5ft, the one I'm looking as seems to be rather long, I don't think it will be to much of a problem though. I figure I might just tuck it in or something

I'm weird about how things feel on me, so anything above my belly button drives me crazy.

I have the tri-top, I'm 5'nothing, 34DD, and I find that I need to shorten the shoulders a little bit, but otherwise it usually ends up rolling up and feeling like a really tight sports bra, to the point I usually have to pull it down a couple times to where it sits about even with the bottom of my ribcage. it's also lasted me the better part of two years with regular use (not just cosplay but everyday wear as well), and it's still going pretty strong, even though I don't follow the proper care instructions at all =/

If you'd like, I can take a pic to show where it sits on me and send it to you.

I have one of the Ultimate Chest Binder tanks in nude so I can wear it under both light and dark colors and love it. I used to wear sports bras or a tri-top binder but really prefer the UCB tank. Mine gets a lot of use as I cosplay guys most of the time and even though it is several years old, it has held up very well and still looks new. I wash mine in a lingerie mesh bag to help keep it in better condition.

That aside, I prefer this style to the shorter binders because it slims your upper body and hips [if pulled down a bit, I am 5'6" for reference] for an even more masculine look. It is also long enough to tuck into pants and stay put without the annoying "rolling up" problem. If you find that it does roll up [as everyone's bodyshape is different], you can easily tack some no-roll elastic to the bottom to prevent that. The arm holes are cut large enough that they are comfortable yet the binder does not show under the clothing. If the aforementioned sounds like what you are looking for in a binder, you probably will like this style.

As to your 2nd question: So shipping time is pretty quick to the entire US, I received all my orders in 2-3 days. You should have your order in 1-2 days as the parcel would be only moving one state up. It is also a good idea to check Retailmenot for coupon codes. Last time I ordered, I saved $4 which was basically the shipping cost.
