i was thinking that maybe my bra is too small and so my breasts kind of squash together? (lol...)

please someone reply xD man i sound so dumb and stupid haha i'm sure no one has this same problem as me -_____-;
Don't worry! It sounds like you may have a bra that doesn't fit quite right, and that's actually a very common problem!

Redness could definitely be caused by a bra that doesn't fit right, and a *lot* of women wear bras that are the wrong size. Have you been measured/measured yourself for one recently? A lot of the people I know don't measure, and just grab "whatever looks right," and then they're surprised when they have chafing or backache or something! If you've not been measured a lot of places do offer fittings, or you can look up on Google how to do it. ^^

So I'm working on my Len Kagamine crossplay but I keep running though my head the binding issue. I'm not all that large (36 B)... But I keep thinking of some problems...
One, my white shirt is kinda.... semi-transparent, the way white shirts generally are. I was just gonna wing it and ACE the girls up but I'm afraid the bandage would be visable through my shirt...
And also, I'd really rather not approach my dad about this >.> it's just weird and I doubt he'd be happy with it...
Help ;A;

It appears that my boob have shrunk due to exerciseso I guess I am a probably within th D-cup or C- cup range. Yet binding might still be a problem.

Alright! So I kind of.. skipped a few hundred pages after reading about 30 or so in, but I have good news! I'm planning on cosplaying John Egbert from the webcomic Homestuck. Though I'm only a 32A, I still look like a girl without anything but a regular bra. (Curse you heavy cotton!) I'm also a bit chubby. But I figured out a GREAT unchest method, if your 'boob-fairy blessings' aren't too large. What I did was take a '2' bandage (That sticks to itself) and wrap it horizontally across my chest, covering my chest. Then I took a sports bra that I had bought from Target and pulled it over the bind. It worked great!

So... Any tips for a size 32F? :3

I got a compressor tank-top that can usually help, but my issue tends to be I can't just smoosh my boobs against my chest. (It pulls funny and looks lumpy) So I pull them and they look flatter. But then I have all the excess pouring out of my sides. (One breast is always larger than the other, but damn! XD)

Of course, I used ACE bandages to take it in. This all would be fine if the compressor would stop rolling up! >< Clearly, I am only slightly frustrated. So any ideas, loves? :3

A little off topic, but sorta not. I've posted here before, and I have a convention in ten weeks, I've been working out a little, but my showpiece costume is tight in the underarm area, I have about 1/2 -1 inches too much arm for my sleeves, I can put the shirt and jacket on fine, but it's tight, and I don't have full arm movement.

I don't have the means to buy an expensive compression shirt with sleeves, so I was curious if anyone else has this same problem, and if so, what they do/did for that.

I'm only looking for a little extra help, in case I can't fix the problem in 10 weeks. I've tried ace wrap, but it makes my arms bigger, so my next thought was a thin layer of saran wrap, but I'm guessing that's a bad idea...

Quick Question for a female friend of mine who wants to crossplay.

What size of boobs can a Underworks Compression vest conceal to look like a male chest?

Thanks!

Has anyone with a chest size of 32 to 34D purchased a tri-top an has it worked wonders for you? What size did you purchase. I am having a difficult time trying to figure out what size I would get. I just don't trust my own judgement and I'd hate to go through the whole process of exchanging multiple times until I get a size that will fit. I'd rather take a chance trying out a size someone else has.

Hey recently at a nearby store I saw some of these- (warning! There's an auto play advertisement video)
https://www.gettrendytop.com/?tag=im...a_bid=8e56370e

And it made me wonder if bought in a smaller size and pulled over the chest it could maybe be a good binder? I'm a little tempted to try it out unless anyone out there is for sure it wouldn't work.

IMO, I think it could work if you were of a smaller chest. Or you had really squishy boobs. It might be worth a try if you think it would work. Worst case it wouldn't flatten all that well.

I make my own binding corsets. They cost practically nothing as most cosplayers probably already have all the materials at home, they're easy to make, use and clean, and work well.

They're made by cutting a piece of cotton or a similar fabric in a little smaller length than the circumference of your chest, attaching shoulder straps, covering the fabric with duct tape, and adding a lace-up in the opening. You can wear the laces in the front or back.

Here's a picture of me wearing it. I have a C-D size chest and the binder gets me nearly flat if I pull it tight. This day I didn't because it was very hot and I had to do a lot of walking but you can do it for, for instance, photoshoots.

So, in short, I think tape binders are awesome.
