If you're carefull to remove it it shouldn't leave any scars. Here's a tutorial on how to use it properly: http://www.cosplay.com/showpost.php?...7&postcount=62

Ooo, this is perfect! I'll be cosplaying Xemnas at MegaCon, so this will definitely come in handy... even though I'm only a B cup ^ ^ That makes things easier, though. Anime chicks have huge boobs. T_T
Thank yooooou! -dakishimeru-

It's not a problem ^^ I'm the only one in my group for Organization XIII that actually really needs to bind because the coat is just loose enough that under a C doesn't need to bind.

My mom won't let me open bind. something about 14 being too young for showing that much skin.
(Yes, I know she's right...I just wish she wouldn't be right so often. :P)
So now I am issuing a warning: If you are young, TALK TO YOUR PARENTS ABOUT YOUR COSTUME. Preferably NOT the day before the con, as I did.
Lol, probably no one is as naive as I am. ><

Ok question of sadness, I have chest problems and can't really apply too much (at all xD) pressure on anything in this whole area. I'm pretty small and since I do shirtless costumes I was wondering, either bandaids over my nipples or try to cover my chest with liquid latex in my color? I would love to make a fake chest but I don't really get how I could get the fabric to match my skin D=

Cool little addition to binding technique that may, or may not have been mentioned:

Okay, I love my binder to death. It does a good job. But I still have bulges that show if I wear tight or thin-fabric shirts. So today I figured out a way to create a more natural looking transition from chest to abdomen. All you do is take an ACE, fold it so it's the length of your chest from one side of the front to the other. Fold it as many times as possible, while still retaining that length. Then all you have to do is sort of fan out the layers a little and pin it right at the base of your chest, extending downward to your stomach. Then just put on an undershirt to disguise any weird textures, then your over shirt!

I'll post pictures later to show how well this really works.

Is there any Canadians who can vouch on where to get some of these items? I live in a small town so I don't know if we even have any stores that would have something remotely close..

We have a Zellers, People's drug mart, shoppers drugmart, Superstore, intersport (may have stuff?), and that's pretty much all our 'good' stores that may or may not have like compression shirts and stuff.

Unless there's somewhere online where I can get it shipped to Canada? I heard that the one compression shirt website doesn't ship to Canada...

Cilo, I don't know about t-kingdom, but I know for a fact that underworks ships to Canada. They ship pretty much everywhere.

My turn for a question! Whenever I bind or use a sports bra, it sends my back muscles spasming. I'm assuming it's because of the spot on my back (too-tight bra straps also do the job). Do the specialty binders put pressure on different spots/across your whole back?

Ok, i'm looking into crossplaying, and I would like to know which binding method would be best for a girl with 38 c to d cup breasts. I would appreciate your help.

So yeah. I better get working on finding a better binding method.
