I wanted to be able to get to A, maybe flat... I have one ace bandage (3") but it doesn't like me and won't stay in place like I want it to... Any suggestions? I can't buy a binder (parental issues and money issues)... Thanks~ ^^

Last 3 peeps. I'm large chested too 3 Ds. Kinda like Yugioh, but missing a D. lol Any way, I've had a lot of people suggest the tri top compression shirt, I forget the website but it's on these threads. And I've also had friends as well as people on here suggest a waist cincer and pulling it over your chest paired with perhaps a sports bra or the wide stretch bands you can buy at joanne's or hobby lobby. Also, if you want to check out underarmor.com they have compression shirts for men and women. I'm going to try one out plus I can use it to work out too, the one I'm planning on getting is under 30 dollars, since underarmor can get pricey, but most of the compression bras and shirts I looked at were under 30. Honestly you'll have to try out things that work for you but best so far that I've heard is the tri top compression shirt works the best. I think the girl posted on this forum but her chest I believe is larger then mine and she got her chest pretty "flat". So if you can I would suggest that.

^ Thanks~ I'm just iffy because of my parents (they hate the fact that I bind, especially my mom) and If that wasn't an issue I would totally get a bunder~ <3 i'm currently using a sports bra (i believe it's a frog bra) and i have gotten comments that i am now a large B, or c cup. I mean, that's improvement, but you can definately still tell I have boobs. ._____= So I will try and get one. If not, then... idk. *sigh*

Like I said if you go to walmart or a mall you can try a waist cincer, I've heard those work pretty well for large chests. I think yours are smaller then mine so they might even work better. And heck, if your mom's buying it for you then it wouldn't seem odd since it's suppose to smooth out your figure. Unless she finds that kind of thing odd, which I wouldn't know since she's not my mom. lol

I tried that once and she was like "what the hell do you need this for?" and I was all "I want a smaller waist..." It was awkward. I might be able to buy one myself tomorrow, as I go in base every day, and I go to my local px every once in a while.... Thanks~

Oh okay, I didn't know if you could buy it yourself to save you the problem. lol But no problem. I'm going to try it out myself and see if it makes any difference for me.

Ok, so I wasn't able to go today, but I went to CVS and got myself some sports tape xD And it's the large one, wide one. Idk if that'll help at all, but i'll try it with my frog bra on. ^^

Does anybody have any experience with this binder?

I'm going to be cosplaying Wolverine (probably in casual format, with the tanktop and jeans) and the binder I have (a black tritop) won't really work with that. If there's a good binder I can wear tanktops with, where the straps won't show and make it super obvious I'm binding, or if there's another way around this, thanks in advance!

I'm pretty flat already, so I probably don't need super compression, but I'd still like to look as male and manchested as possible.

It is perfectly possible to trim down the edges on Underworks binders so they don't peek out annoyingly. You'll want to serge the edges, to keep them from stretching out, and also because they tend to be pointy and uncomfortable. If the binder shows on the armholes, a handy trick is to shorten the straps on the tanktop. I'm probably a good deal bigger than you, and this was my result of using both methods. The binder I used was a rather old and somewhat worn out one, because I didn't want to risk one of my nice ones in case it didn't work, but I'm happy to inform everyone that it does.

One method i did recently on short notice, used duct tape and a sports bra. Im a size C so its not to easy but it does make a difference. Take the sports bra so you get the copression that comes with it and then use duct tape to bind it (only on the bra) and if you only use duct tape on the front side it can be re-used. its not too uncomfortable and re-usable.

So, I'm a C cup. Do you think its feasible for me to bind my chest flat enough to crossplay? I really don't want any sign of my bust to be visible if I'm going to crossplay. And the character is Rin Okumura from Ao no Exorcist.

It is definitely feasible. May not be totally flat, unless you bind extremely tight (which I don't recommend). If you bind comfortably, you may end up looking like you've got some pecs. I'm saying this from my own experience, since I bind everyday and I'm also a C. Also, I recommend using a binder over ACE bandages. If you can manage to pull something off with a sports bra and/or compression shirt that'd be good too.

Ok my breasts are 46DD (according to my measurements) and I have little money to be trying methods that MAY work. Every person I've seen talking about things that work are smaller than me. Or are using methods that can give you bruises. That can cause breast cancer and that's already a threat for me so those methods are way out. Can someone please give me a good way to bind a chest my size?

OK!
i would like to know!
i am thinking of getting a Underwork's FTM binder (if that matters...)

if i chest-bind, and my boobs (large B/small C) are lets say ...compressed all the way down to a A and unoticeable, what about my stomache? (its pretty chubby)
would it interfer with the crossplay?
i would imagine the stomache would buldge out? <do not want buldging stomache/other fatty areas like underarms...>
