I just got my binder from t-kingdom and I must say it really does the job well. It feels like a sports bar yet gets me as flat if not more than an ace bandage.

nikkiolie: Which binder did you get again? The 801?

As for my binder, the second time I tried it on went much better. I got a bit smaller and I wasn't spilling out the sides as much, so I've decided not to exchange it, though I'm still thinking about adding an extra strip of velcro to make it tighter. The only problem I have with the 1480 now is how much the straps show under tank tops, but pinning the tank top straps to the binder straps should solve that problem. So I'm content.

I just got my Tri-Top binder from Underworks in the mail today, and it fits perfectly! gets me flat enough to look like I just have a developed man-chest, but its very comfortable. I quickly put on my Ulquiorra jacket and just wearing the binder makes a total difference. Definitely worth the investment!

@Inoli, it's hard to give you any advice unless you give a little information on your situation - it's like posting a "How do I make a Black Mage costume ?" thread without reference images.

If you don't help people to help you - no one can really give you any beneficial advice.

How "open" does it need to be ?

Have you talked to a doctor ? They might be able to tell you about a glue / tape that could work better for your skin.



Honestly, I would NOT attempt this without SOME kind of adhesive, unless the "open" part is VERY small.

God I haven't been on here in forever.

Anyway, I got a question.
I'm only a small B and I used the underworks binder and its fantastic.
My friend however... is a 36 DD and was curious if there was something she could use.
I suggested the binder I have, since that seems to be the best investment.

But I was kinda wondering if any of your more endowed ladies can vouch for it or not, or what method do you use that works best?

I'm a 42DD and I've used both the Tri-Top and Ultimate Chest Binder from Underworks. They get me about as flat as I can get! I have to say I prefer the Tri-top, as the longer Ultimate tends to roll up around the hips and waist. However, if you have a bit of a "gut" too, it's helpful in compressing that as well. Also, I'm fairly tall, so it doesn't pull down far enough to compress my hips... on a shorter girl, it might help with that as well. Just depends on what you're going for!

The other binding method I'd tried was a back brace around my boobs, but the Underworks binders work much better.

I'm a D (European size, not sure how different this is) and the Tritop gets me to a spread-out A cup that hardly looks feminine.

Thanks for the advice!
She is kinda weird about ordering stuff online, so I'm just gonna buy it for her.
But uh, I'm not entire sure about the size.
Should I get a larger one, or a smaller one to help with the compression? 0.o

Without a bra.

No compression way in the world will make you completly flat, as the flesh and muscles are still there ;P

If she's a D or larger I recommend getting large. Unless she's skinny I don't recommend getting medium if you have a large cup size. (It would be harder to make her flat if that's the case, sadly)

Hey there, umm, I'm not sure if this is the place to ask this, but i'm gonna give it a shot.

I'm cosplaying (not really crossplaying because my character is a girl) a character that has a really small chest, and I'm very well endowed (34G). I was wondering if there is a technique (or a recommendation) to bind for a backless shirt that has a halter type front that doesn't use bras (because honestly no one makes my size and even regular bras I need to get custom made).

I honestly have no idea what to do because all my previous small chested characters wore outfits that hid it so i could ACE bandage bind myself down. Does anyone have any tips?

(P.S.- i'm sorry if this problem was mentioned before but i couldn't bring myself to read through 198 pages xD. If it already exists, please just direct me to that page xD)

I would NOT do it.

You can go ahead and try it at home before going to the event, but I would not except it to go well, sorry.


I would barely trust that method on a C or D.


I think you need to change the costume (add a nude back where the open halter would be), not worry about your breasts being too big, or not worry about the binding showing.

KitsuneCagalli: I second OurLadyC's suggestion to add a nude back. It's the best way to get the backless look without losing the option to bind.
