I just wanted to let everyone know that you guys are going to help me win a bet! Halloween is just around the corner and at work we're allowed to dress up. I plan on dressing as Issun from the PS2 game Okami:
http://www.sorayume.net/sosiqui/issun.jpg
Technically he's only like three inches tall but who cares, I think the kids will like my big bug hat.
Well even though my shirt will be a modified maternity shirt (with a t shirt underneath because they don't like sleeveless things here at our job) I still don't want Issun to have man-boobs. So I planned to tape it all down. As a 36 B I'm pretty confident that I can pull it off. A buddy of mine at work swears up and down that I will fail miserably. He's bet me 20 dollars I can't get my chest flat. Thanks to this thread I think I'm going to win ^.^

ack i thought so. so i guess ill try some ace bandages over it then.

Ah, thank you! Using two like that will probably work, though I think I may be ace bandage retarded ^^;;

I use two, and I'm a C cup. ._. And I tied the first one fairly well, then the second one, but by a couple of hours my chesticles were poppin' out. xD And I didn't get that seriously flat. So I was wondering if a Sports bra would help at all? Or would it make me less flat?

Well, one thing you could try is, when you're wrapping, pull the bandages up in the back, as high as you can. I know that when I first started crossplaying *coughlastyearcough*, I was having the exact same problem.

I tried bandages for a while, but I think I've finally found the easiest binding method. Most lingerie stores sell elastic "tummy tuck" corsets - simple white (or light pink) slimming undergarments with one or two baleens that you can wear to reduce your stomach. My solution? Wear them a few inches higher. Instant bind, no hassle, fully adjustable and will 100% stay on. Walking, breathing and even bending down isn't a problem, and after a few hours I didn't even notice I was wearing it anymore.

I hadn't really tested it in advance, but I ended up crossplaying 2 full days at Abunai 2007, and turned my 75Cs into a pretty damn natural looking male chest. Even the price wasn't a problem; I spent E12,50 on the thing, and I'll probably be using it for the next few years.

I got the double fronted compression vest from Underworks http://www.underworks.com/996.html and here are my results. Just to clarify, I'm a D cup, and tape didn't do all that much for me.

Before
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y48/Carveus/before.jpg

After
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y48/Carveus/after.jpg

I managed to get a little flatter as well after I tucked a bit. Yeah, there was still some boobage, But it blended in enough with my chest for me to get away with it.

That, and I'm gonna be Reno, so loose shirt, yay!

Heyy! So I have a question ... I'm like ... a DD I think I may be a little bigger .. And I'd really like to crossplay, cause it's just so much more fun XD

But anyway, I've tried just like ... flattening my chest with my hands and it just didn't look right to me ... Like two big weird smushed bumps ... I don't know ... Has anyone else had this problem, or is it just hopless? Because if it looks like that, I would rather just not try to make them look flat.

Also, when you do wrap, you wear a bra right?

well, honestly, I think us DD's only have one really good option, and that's compression shirts. Some have found other ways, but this seems to be the most effective, albeit a bit on the expensive side.
I know you don't wear a bra with compression shirts, but I'm not sure about wrapping. I've seen people do it both ways, I'd say whichever way works best for you.

There's one thing I've learned does not work: scarves. Last time I crossplayed, the only binding material I had on hand was a scarf, and it wouldn't stay put. Not to mention it was uncomfortable.

I think I bound too tight last night and bruised myself. Should I just buy a compression shirt? I am a large c and use 3 3" ace bandages.. My Mom is a nurse and she told me that binding could cause pnumonia if I leave them on too long. Is that true?

If your mother's a nurse, then I'm sure there's some truth to it, though I've never heard anything like that. Whatever you believe, you do need to be careful, because it is possible to hurt yourself if you bind too tight. I have a compression shirt that works pretty well, but they're a bit on the expensive side.
