Just to give you a general idea though:

Me in Tsunade cosplay, using a regular bra:

Me in Ryuhou cosplay, bound with the shirt:

Ok, that definitely looks promising.

Is it proportional to your waist? a big problem I have is that even if I can drop my bust measurements by 4", it's not a smooth transition to my waist or stomach. my chest kinda looks like this thing -> [ with my stomach being a I right under it.

That's kind of a retarded example, but bah..

Well, it sounds like I have a slightly larger waist than you do. ^_^;; But still, it will be slightly wider than the waist, though it's a smoother transition than other binding methods I've tried.

I'm 32 around the waist,and trying to lose some...

But it sounds great. ^_^ Thanks for your help!

One more thing, what about dying the compression shirt? I'll be wearing Dilandau's lower cut shirt so I'll need the undershirt to be flesh colored...

I don't think you'd have much trouble dying it, or you could probably cut and hem it to the length you needed. I'm not familiar with the costume enough to tell you.

It's low cut at the top, remaining open down to the sternum. It's also fairly high at the bottom, probably showing the navel. Does the undershirt compress the stomach at all? if so cutting and hemming might cause a problem for the stomach area.

This one goes down even over the hips, so it compresses the girly butt a bit too.

This one goes about halfway down, but I don't use this one so I don't know how well it works for binding.

Okay, thanks! I'll probably just go ahead and get the long one. I could use a bit of butt comperessing. I'll just have to try to dye it a flesh color and hope it's not horribly obvious. hooray trial and error!

I'm probably not doing it tight enough, but it only takes 1'' off of mine.. O_O;; I'm not too big to begin with so that might be it. with a baggy shirt and a sports bra I can pass as a boy..so yeah.

If the dying it flesh colored doesn't work, there's also the option of a sleevless leotard to wear over it.

Hey everyone ^_^

I am but a newcomer to this site, and also new to the world of chest-binding, so any help would be greatly appreciated <3

I have kinda a big chest (32D) but is this impossible to bind?

I've only read the first 20-or-so pages and the last 10-or-so, because I don't really have enough patience (or spare time) to read all of the posts ^_^'

I'm going to the London Expo dressed as Sasuke, who you can see here ^_^

http://www.narutomania.com/gallery/d...hippuuden1.jpg

I wanted to know if you can actually bind a chest my size flat or anything really close.

I need to use binding really as the shirt is waaaaay open...

Also, sports tape...

In England, no-one sells sports tape by Johnson and Johnson ¬_¬ But I found this Pro Zinc Oxide Tape which seems to be something similar...

Is Zinc Oxide what you want to use?

Anyhow, anyone who can answer these questions and put my mind at ease, THANK YOU! You have my eternal love <3

Nyamo~<3

(Sorry for the gigantic post ^_^'')

I'm wondering if a sport-like compression shirt would work or not?
Something like
http://cgi.ebay.com/T3K-Youth-Under-...QQcmdZViewItem
That?
I'm not sure, since it isn't really designed for breasts, so I don't know if it would work the same way?
:<
Thanks~

Nyamo:

You might be out of luck as far as open-shirt binding. You can bind a chest that big (I'm a 40DD and bind fairly flat with a compression shirt) but I don't think open-shirt method works for anyone larger than a B or a small C. That's just my impression anyway.

Thanks for your help, Brightdreamer ^_^

Even so, I think I might get some of the J&J Sports Tape I found on eBay to try it on... (Pity it only comes in crates of 26...)

I'll tell you how it comes out though <3

Well, it should work, as I've seen plenty of people use these things and have flat chests...

It all depends on whether you want an open shirt or not... *shrugs*

if you do somehow manage to make the open shirt binding, dont forget to tape the shirt down so it doesnt open all the way
