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.

Hello, all~

I attempted to read through this entire thread in search for my answer, but I became impatient. =w=; I read through the most recent pages, but didn't come across what I was looking for. Hopefully, someone can help me with this.

On the Underworks link (http://www.underworks.com/996.html) that I noticed many times, which shirt do you fellow crossplayers buy? =o The Binder Tank (left) or Binder Suit (right)? And what's the difference between these two? From the description, I /think/ the one on the right goes all the way around your legs...? Maybe...? .w.;;;;

I'm planning on doing open shirt taping for a sasuke shippuden cosplay. I'm not that worried about it being difficult since I'm an A. However, I've been looking through the posts & seeing all of the experiences with chunks of skin being pulled off does make me a bit nervous. Have people found a type of tape that is fairly gentle on the skin or that they would suggest for tape binding? Or is there a certain way to remove the tape (I know someone mentioned professional adhesive remover...)?

I've seen sports tape and sports tape remover mentioned.

I'm not quite sure if this has ever been asked, but do you know if long sleeved compression shirts exists? I'm getting the Tri Top one but I was curious to know if long sleeved ones existed

I bought the shirt on the left. It's actually pretty long, I'm not sure what's the difference from the suit probably the fact that the suit is put on like a bathing suit, and the shirt is put on like a shirt. I would recommend getting the one the left, its cheaper and the results are just as good, and it's really comfortable to wear. I also recommend getting your actual SIZE, other wise it's not going to flatten out your chest as much as you want to.
And this is what you must do to figure out which size you need...

Sizing Instructions for Full Chest Binding.

With a tape measure, take a snug measurement under the bustline.
Then take another measurement over the fullest part of the chest over the breasts.
Take the average of the two measurements and apply this to the scale for the item provided on the site.

here's a coupon to help you out^^ (hopefully it still works!)
10% discount: under10

I bought a Tri-Top from underworks and I'm very happy with it. I'm in-between a 34C and 34D and sometimes in certain photos I can get away with looking rather flat naturally. Most people never even realize that I'm on the larger side for bust. Most people think I'm a B because I wear minimizers and baggy shirts. XDDD But I tried out the Tri-Top for my Honey-senpai cosplay and I can say that I'm really happy with it. The first time I put it on I had a harder time breathing, but it was really just a minor inconvenience and once I was used to it, my breathing was just normal. I even went to my Sword Team practice with it on and it was perfect. And if you're like me and you're flexible, putting it on and taking it off by yourself isn't too much of a problem. Just takes a little wiggling around. =3

O: I stumbled upon this thread by a friend and I've finally found someone with the same size as me. I'm a 34 D/DD ( there's an explanation for that..><;; ) and I've been trying to find a better way to bind myself. I've just been using a sports bra and ACE bandaging. For the most part it works, but the bandages end up slipping off.

Do you have a link to this Tri-Top thing? ._.;

Has anyone had a good experience with a compression shirt from t-kingdom? I'm getting tired of using medical tape for binding, while it's effective it's uncomfortable. I'm around a 34D-DD.

livingdeadgirl, I bought my compression vest from t-kingdom (the 690 model). I've found that it works great for me, gets me completely flat and is pretty darn comfy to boot. I should point out, however, that I'm between an A-B cup, so YMMV.

liivingdeadgirl: I have the model 1480 binder in a large from T-Kingdom. I'm a 34 C/D and get down to about an A with it. A different style binder would probably have done a better job, but I couldn't find enough reviews to go by to choose something better...

*Hum* Ok, I have a little question.
I'm... not small...., and while I'm not crossplaying, I'm buying a kigurumi, and it's going to be a snug fit. I've also seen girls with big boobs in kigurumi outfits, and I don't like how it looks. I don't need to be flat by any means (nor do I expect to be, LOL), but how would you suggest I get smaller, so my costume looks better on me?
Would a sports bra work? I wouldn't know, I've never worn one before :/ And I can't buy anything from online, it'd have to be something I can buy at like, Wal-Mart or a store like that (I'm in Canada).

It would help if I had my kigurumi already, but I'm not getting it for awhile yet. :/

This sound stupid, but because I'm in a small town, and I need to go to the next town over to do that sort of shopping... I also have to take public buses, and with the stupid schedule they're running, I can either stay there for like, 50/60 minutes (not long enough) or like, 3/4 hours (way too long)... so I'd like to have an idea of what to look for/try on before I go.
