I'm a 30F or 28FF depending on bra and I've recently bought this binder and it works great, It's gotten me the flattest I've ever achieved binding. I just bought the strapless version so I'm not sure how well that one works yet.

So I see the techniques for big boobs using binders with straps~ but~
There's a character I want to crossplay that has a strapless top. What methods are there for 34DD / F that works and don't have straps~?
Hope that explanation is clear...

Recently I ran into the problem of having open shoulders and needing binding that wouldn't have any straps. I usually used a sports bra with duck tape over top of it to bind but that just wouldn't work as the cosplay only had small straps and you would have seen a sports bra for sure.

I solved this by using a girdle that normally would go over your stomach (the kind with the hooks) and instead of using it around my stomach I pulled it around my breasts. It flattened everything pretty good but I wanted it a bit flatter so I did a few rows of duck tape over top it. It was the perfect solution! I wore it for my Kurogane cosplay for two days and didn't have any issues even though on average I was wearing it for 12+ hours one day.

I'm pretty chesty so I think that this would work for most cosplayers that needed something of the same sort. I was in fact mistaken for male by another cosplayer. so at the time I took it as a compliment. Lol.

Could I use binding to make my chest size go down but not completely flat? I'm a 34F in UK bra brands (6" difference from underbust measurement to my overbust measurement). And the character I wanna cosplay is like an A cup. Could I use a compression shirt, or the Ace bandage method to "size down"?

Hello all! I am new to the Crossplaying community, and I have a major-ass problem: I am a Plus-size CURVY asian chick who is absolutely feminine to the bone naturally. Long-eyelashes, round face, DD's breasts, thin-ish waist [still have some pudge], and big natural hips. Huge ass.

I recently bought a pants that are a size 40. I wanted a baggy pair of jeans but these were tight on my ass unfortunately. D: > Tight on the thighs/butt area, and it's not enough UNF of manliness whatsoever.

Is there anyway I can slim down the lower hip area to make it seem like I DON'T have a butt?

I am also wondering if underworks binders work any good either.

I may be a plus-size chick, but I want to just try and pull off as a guy in general. DX Any suggestions..?

I need to bind for my first armored cosplay (Character is male, and it's easier to get armor to fit if you don't have huge boobs in the way), but I'm quite plus sized- 52" around the chest with a regular bra on. Do they make binders for my size, and if not, what can I do?

Hi all I have a question not for me, but for a friend. my friend is having breast recovery surgery (think like a lumpectomy) in the near future, which will mean the insertion of breast implants into the damaged breast, and maybe also into the other in regards to making sizing even.
however my friend would love to crossplay Gil from Pandora Hearts but is uncertain if boobs with implants can be bound. she's either a large b cup or a small c, not sure off hand.
would she be better off just dealing with unboundness? he has a large cravat/coat, or designing a genderbend?
please help!

Underworks does make them that size (which you've probably out found since you've posted this !).

My friend who got breast implants was told that once they were well-healed that she could bind them if she wanted to.

Your friend should ask their surgeon this just to be safe since different methods and types of implant might pose different risks.

Okay, so I am just going to come out of my little hidey-hole here and say that I am not willing to bind my chest with Ace bandages. I am going to have to bind my chest this December, though. Would cutting a slit in the crotch of compression shorts and putting my head in that slit work? I am wearing a button-up shirt all the way up, so no issues of visibility, plus there is a jacket, closed, over that.

Does anyone have a personal recommendation for waist-cinchers-as-binders? I'm a small C (~30" bust braless, 26" under bust) and I'd prefer to spend around or under $20. It's actually not for crossplay but a flat-chested female character ^^; but I thought it'd be best to ask here. I've tried the shapeware I already own, but it's not flattening enough so I don't want to just buy random girdles if they may or may not work. Local stores had nothing

Helpppppppp

I really wanna cosplay Ling Yao from Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, but I don't know what to do about his almost completely bare midriff...here's a pic:

I don't know what to do about it. A nude colored tank top or maybe extending the bandages around his waist up my chest? Any advice would be appreciated! If it doesn't work out, I think I'll just do Envy...

I think you can use certain kinds of tape to pull that off. Open shirt binding is definitely a thing, and there are several tutorials out there.

Hello! I'm going to cosplay Sphintus Carmen from Magi: Sphintus Screen Shot Full View.jpg Sphintus Offical Art Spread.jpeg (He's the one with the white hair) I really want my cosplay to look realistic, but I don't know how I can bind and still have bare sides! (By the way I am a 34AA, so I don't use a binder; one or two sports bras is all it takes.)

I want to cosplay as Len (from the vocaloids)I want to do one of his different outfits and not just the well known ones (like their basic outfits or the Servant of Evil outfit)

So I wanted to do this one: http://www.cosplayisland.co.uk/costume/view/42382

The site has a bunch of pictures of the outfit. I am like a low sized A but one of the shoulders are showing so does anyone know a good way I can bind my chest without ruining the cosplay effect of the bandages?
