I have a 28" ribcage and use the tri-top.

I'm a little worried about ordering one of the Loveboat ones because I'm a ~28D/D and I don't quite have confidence in them without seeing someone of a similar proportion model them. :c

I'm the same Kelley. I was drawn the the loveboat ones because they seemed to be targeted at, well, Asian females, without trying to be racist - more petite and flatter like I am. I hesitated about the underworks ones for the same reasons as Mr Firefly.

@Mr Firefly a minor warning about the pullover, I got a Small and when I first got it I panicked that it was TOO small. I felt like I was going to have to dislocate my shoulder to get it over my head. With some effort though, once it got on it was SUPER comfortable, I notice I'm wearing it as much as I notice wearing a bra. As I've worn it more, it has loosened comfortably so it's much easier getting it on, but phew, that first time was quite an effort! I would say make sure you stretch it out a little before you try it on, and maybe washing it might help too.
When I get paid next month, I'm going to get the longer binder in medium and we'll see what the differences is.

I would personally rather use an isolation type bra for sports or dance if I didn't care about having visible breasts. They've done studies and they're scientifically more effective when it comes to comfort and things not moving around. My friend has looked and found bras of all kinds for a 28G, so it's possible to find them (and actually not that hard if you're looking on-line !).
thanks!!! good to know that about the t-kingdom not being that effective for large breasts,
yeah I was doing some research and came up with the Enell Sports Bra, that I think im going to go with, since Im not going to be dancing seriously, I dont really need to conceal them
thanks for the advise

That's exactly how I was feeling for a bit, but now I know Chryso's tried some, and we're about the same size! Interesting! Interesting! I'll probably grab one from Lesloveboat to try!

Oh hey. Found an English agent for taobao (China's ebay) - so much cheaper from here. Might give it a shot.

Underworks Tri-Top.

Just make sure you go by actual measurements and not bra size.

Hi! I've done a bit of research about binding.. I've never done but for some cosplays I want to try.
I'm a 34B and I was wondering if a sports bra would be good enough? I have one but it was only about 11 bucks, so it's pretty thin and I thought maybe it wasn't the best sports bra for this sort of thing.
Any recommended companies for binders? Or specific binders?

Thanks!! :')

You could try doubling up on sports bras, if you have the funds to buy another. Before I made my binder, two thin sports bras worked just fine.

Pirogoeth: Ah I did see it but I thought maybe I would want a different way because the size is different. I thought some binders are better for certain sizes.

Ilafatyu: Doubling sounds doable! I read somewhere that you put the first one on backwards, but I also read that that can lead to problems?

So I got my Underworks Tri-top in the mail the other day. I'm a 32B, 35" around my bust, 29" under my bust, so because the average was 32", I ordered a small.

Now, maybe it's just me, but getting that mo-fo on and off is a two-person job, and the end result is still kinda uncomfortable (though that discomfort may just be from the fight in getting it on). I thought about exchanging this binder for one of a larger size, but I thought it might be less effective. Though if I'm going to make an exchange/return, I have to make the decision soon.

Is there some secret method to equipping a binder or breaking it in, and I just missed the memo?
I could really use some advice to making the process of putting on my binder easier and less painful please. Any tips?

Thank you Kelley. I would have responded earlier, but I wasn't sure if anyone was going to.

Tiramisuki: I step into it and pull it up. It can be a little tricky getting your arms in, but it's much easier than trying to get it on over your head. To get it off, I cross my arms in front of me, grab the bottom and pull up. It gets it off without needing another person to help you strip. It does take some practice, but eventually you're putting it on and taking it off like you always use it. GL!
