Hey everyone! I've got pics of what the underworks vest looks/does. I ordered black (for modesty sake--was scared you could see through the white version). It's very comfy, and gets me (a DD) down to at least an A or B.

Regular look without the vest:

That's awesome! I've been looking through this thread quite a bit, since I'm gonna be crossplaying and I'm a 40DD, so seeing this definitely makes me wanna get one of those. Just curious as to what size you got for that, because I'm not quite sure which size would work for me.

I got an extra large. I was worried I got too big of a size when I held it up, but when I put it on, it was perfect.

oh, and I got the long one--it doesn't roll up if you know how to sit. If you pull it down all the way, it should go to right where your legs meet your butt.

Thanks for letting me know. I'll definitely be looking into getting one of those then.

Oh man. I've always wanted to crossplay, but there's one thing holding me back: I'm a 32F.
The boob fairy obviously hated me. These little 'blessings' are the bain of my existance.
What sucks is that I'm actually a tiny person. I nearly cried in Fashion class when they took my measurements: 28" rib cage, 39" around the fullest part of my bust.
I have to drive 6 hours to get bras that actually fit.

I'll have to try some of these, though I doubt any will work (medical tape = defineate no-no). I'm hoping because I'm tiny (save for my breasts that enter a room 5 minutes before I do) that if push comes to shove I'll just make my waist look bigger so the difference isn't that noticable. XD

Oh, DeadxGone, I feel your pain. My friend is a 30G. Not only that, but she lives in Japan, where bras like that are even more difficult to find. Hold on...http://www.figleaves.com/us/nsf/qwis...te=41&size=32F. There, all those bras come in 32F. Now, on to binding...A binder is required. Required, unless you want to use copious amounts of ace bandages that would hamper your breathing like crazy. So get a binder. Second, your idea on making your waist bigger is good. You can get ideas for that at the appropriate thread, which is right below this one I believe. So, yes. =D

Would it affect my binding if after I put on the sports tape cut off any bits that showed? I'm doing a guy with a an open shirt, and I suck at taping in even lines...

Most people suggest just coloring any bits that show with some concealer. So unless you have just a ton of tape showing, I'd suggest that. Also, be sure to use double sided tape to hold down your shirt edges!

Go to Walgreens, or CVS, or whatever your local drug store is. They sell extras of the little ace bandage clips. Also, sometimes Kroger, Randalls (or your local supermarket) has them.

Just google 'ace bandage clips'. Also, buy another ace bandage. It will help with the slippage, since both bandages will have something to cling to.
Thanks for the tips =] I can't order stuff online though =[ I'll definitely check Walgreens. I'm going this Friday or Saturday anyway =D So that's convenient. Thanks so much

I just wanted to let some people know that I ordered a Model 1700 in black from t-kingdom and it works great! The only thing I have to complain about is that it's too big (I got an XL and I was surprised at how big it actually was) so I'd recommend going a little smaller than your normal size. My binder is surprisingly easy to breathe in (it doesn't impede my breathing in the slightest!!! Goodbye ACE bandages!) but is a little uncomfortable at the moment, mostly because I haven't worn one before. The velcro on the side is also handy because even though it's a little bigger than I want it, I can adjust it to fit me. Right now it takes me down from a D to an A cup, which I'm betting I can get down even further if I tighten it more.

How long did it take you to get on? I tried on my new underworks shirt this afternoon and it took me a good 15 minutes + having help from my mom after that. It was a ***** to get on and off. So I was hoping I didn't order one that was too small. (38B and got a medium.)

(Oh and don't wear this when you haven't eaten in a good 9 hours. *sick*)

Did you put the shirt on over your head or step into it? I find that stepping into the shirt and pulling it up works much better, to the point that I can get mine on in under 30 seconds. The problem probably isn't the shirt being too small, I'm a 36D and a medium works well for me. Hope that helps!

I put it on over my head. I attempted stepping into it once, but I ended up "omg no way!" I tried a few times last night getting it on and off and my times have decreased. Getting it on just takes some "oh my god"'s and 2 minutes of dancing around. XD Getting it off only takes a minute.

That's great to know I haven't bought the wrong size. Thank you very much!

It's not difficult for me to get on at all, actually. My first time it took me about five minutes, then after that I can get it under a minute. That might mean it's too big, but I don't know if I would fit into just a large...
