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...>

Chest binders. Underworks are a godsend. I'm DD myself, though 36, and my Tri-Top works pretty damn well.

- I was looking at underworks but didn't know of any girl used them before...
So I'm thinking of getting the same type you got, even though mine are a 36D. However, I want to be completely flat. Do you think it'll work for me?

Being a uber Tintin geek, naturally he was the only real character I want to cosplay at a comic convention in two weeks. I am the right height build for it and my hair is sorted too. Problem is, I am quite busty. I'm a 32 E

I have never cosplayed a male character before and need to bind my chest. It's still quite obvious even when using the sportsbra/swimming costume method. I managed to halve the size using this, but it isn't good enough. And money isn't exactly abundant for me :S

But luckily the jumper I have for the costume isn't too tight fitting [as it should be for Tintin] but it's still obvious.

Any advice?
