I just got my Underworks binder, and I'm having an OMG moment. I went from a DD to like...an A in a matter of seconds.

Oh. My. God. I LOVE having small breasts. I'm thrilled--absolutely thrilled with this thing. It's a miracle in a box. This is just...wow.

Um this had probably been answered but I don't have time to read through ALL the posts but does binding damage your chest and does it hurt much?

What do I use and how? I need to flatten and/or tape some 34Bs-36Bs down for a Shippuuden Sasuke crossplay. I'll be moving around a lot and, be in a dancing skit, next year. I need to keep the two front sides of the top stuck to me, also.

Thanks!

Check the very first post, she gives a method for binding yourself up and away for open-shirt crossplays, and I think she might have a way to keep the shirt stuck to yourself too, though I could be wrong about that part.

Any suggestions on as to how to *ahem* adjust yourself under the binding vest from underworks?

Excuse the graphic-ness of this, but I must know what's best for the breasts.

Should they hang straight down and have the fabric press them that way, or should the nipples be straight onto the fabric and the fabric squish them straight on?

I hope you get what I mean...

WingedK9 - I think pictures would be required before any of us (or at least me) would commit ourselves to anything.

Aihoshi - It doesn't damage your breasts, and if it hurts, your binding is too tight.

GoPlayer - It's not going to hurt your breasts either way, so whatever looks best for you. (Though I've found you get a flatter look angling them down.)

same here. I don't feel like sifting through 150 pages to find that post.
Does anyone know the binding technique of the top of their heads (or know the post?)
I brought some medical tape the other day but it wasn't strong enough- are you supposed to wrap the tape around your back too for support? @___@?
Is there a certain way that people put their bandages on?

"search this thread"
use a keyword . i actually believe there's a post outside this big one as well.

anyway i want to put my two cents about the vest/wrapping.

for the past two years i've used the same freaking vest.
now, it's going in the trash.
i had to use ace bandages for my nanashi cosplay and turns out? i'm more fat and well okay that time i wrapped myself too tight, but more comfortable than i am in that stupid vest.
and i'm a 38D. so yes, it can be done. just practice XD

hooraytheweird - i agree with you, and until i test the shirt on a friend w/ DD, im not going to actually do anything selling wise, its still sort of in the testing stage, cause while it may work on me, a B doesnt mean it will work on anyone larger. but thanks for the reply

And with the proper baggy shirt or so, it looks flat enough to be male.

I bought a new compression shirt a little while ago because my old one was blue and this one is white. I bought for $11 dollars in the male section at Wal-Mart. It's not expensive and it's an easy solution. And comfortable. It sorta hurts my back when I have to wear it for days in a row but it doesn't try to squeeze the life out of you like most bindings. I can post photos of the shirt if anyone wants an example of what I mean. It really is a new and effective way that helps.

Hasn't anyone else tried this???
yay this gives me hope for my Riku crossplay, I was gonna go with a sports bra and possible tape or ace bandage, but i will try looking around now for a compression shirt.. the only time being a DD came in handy was for Tsunade!

I apologize ahead of time if someone has already given ideas for my question.

Does anyone know any fool-proof boob hiding ways when it comes to a DD cup size?
I'm not big by any stretch of the imagination; I wear a five in pants and small in shirts (As long as their stretchy at the top).
In this case, I was wondering if there was anything (Other then an incredibly expensive Trans. shirt) that could get me almost completely flat?
I want to cosplay as Roxas, but I don't want to ruin it by having huge knockers you know?
:]
