Ah, I see...well maybe just vertical stips will work if you're not too large. Maybe experiment with teh idea of binding normally and getting a shirt airbrushed to look lilke man-bod?

So, since we seem to be at the point of asking costume-specific and bust size specific, I have to ask.

As it can be seen in my siggy [I'm cancelling Itachi most likely, a scheduling thing >>;]

But, for Yuki, Uryuu Ishida, Honey, and Urahara Kisuke, what would be the best binding method?

I'm not entirely 100% on my bust size, but it's somewhere between 36C and 40D.

References, incase!

Kisuke: http://i272.photobucket.com/albums/j...ngacolored.jpg
Eiri Yuki: http://nd.blog.cz/s/sorka.blog.cz/obrazky/16757930.jpg [I have a suit jacket for this also]
I'd say any type of binding would be ok. The best way to bind would be those amazing compression shirts, but that may pose a problem with Kisuke as his is a little lower than th eother two. Since his ourfit is loose, you could probably get away with either the ace bandage method or the tight sports bra method...or a combination of both.

@Sisshi: Thanks~
I'll play around a bit with the ace wrap and sports bra methods and see what happens, and see if I can get ahold of a compression shirt also~

this should be very helpful, consider I am doing Xigbar, and sometimes the jacket is down a bit XD

any binding methods for a 40DD? LOL

And about tape taking skin off, has anyone ever tried to tape over some sort of cloth or something?

I'm a 40-42DD and I swear by the compression shirts from Underworks. I have this one: http://www.underworks.com/996.html

But I find it tends to roll up over my hips. I think if I buy another, I'll get this one:
http://www.underworks.com/983.html

Same thing, just shorter. I bought an XL and it gets me quite flat!

I'm an H, there's a link in my siggy to show the results of the first one. I recomend it and as for the rolling, that only happens when I stand up....though by the end of 14 hourrs I figured out how to stand up without that happening to me.

I just bought an Underworks compression shirt off a friend (new mind you)

This thing is awesome

I have something Bs and it flattens me out great. I just shift my breasts a little and it looks like a have little pecs.

Took me forever to get it off though...

I used the two sports bra binding method for AE08 this year, because I didn't have any tape. Surprisingly, I got quite flat with it; at least, my boobage wasn't noticeable. XD;; Normally, I'm a 34B, bordering on a C, which is pretty obvious normally.

My guess is, in this case, that a combination of open-chest tape binding and the sports bra method for security/just in case/good measure, anyone above an A and below a mid C can use this method to varying degrees of success. 8D

In the attached photos, I am the one wearing the red tie.

That looks great ^-^

It looks like it worked well enough, as far as I can tell, only a tiny amount of boobage is visible in the very last picture.

So, considering the used method, that seems like great results =3

Well I can't see much of any boobage, but I'd suggest wearing a white shirt under the shirt because it looks like you're wearing a pink shirt under it.

Hiya, a question. I'm finally buying the chest binder, everybody else mentions. But I was wondering on how to measure, I know stupid question, but I just want to be sure!

Measure under or on the boobs? If you're between medium or large, which one do you take?

Here's the easiest way to do it...it's also the method to find your corset size. Take your band for your bra size, and add one for every cup size.

For example: 32C C=3, therefore your size would be 35.

As for between med/large, if the number is at the end of the spectrum but still in medium, go with that, if you're at the very beginning of large, buy a large, but you might be able to get away wiht a medium

The compression shirt seems heavenly... but.. if I'm a 40DD, you think I could I get away with a XL (I think it's actually a low 2X)?

I'm not sure if I'll have the time to get one of these, though. I'm thinking of doing Itachi and it's crazy short notice... since I'd be in a cloak and a rather loose shirt the whole time, I was thinking maybe sports bra, bandages, and lots of adjustment? :lol:
