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?

Unfortunately, I've been "blessed" with really big boobs. They're 36DDD at this point. I'd really like to cosplay as Murdoc Niccals from Gorillaz, so that requires a flat chest. I'd also like to cosplay as female characters with smaller breasts than I, so I also need a binder that'd just make me a B or so. Does anyone know where I can buy either of those?

Hi has anyone found either of these strapless binders to be effective and comfortable?

http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Free-...949770108.html

http://www.lesloveboat.com/shop/prod...roducts_id=199

I'm like 34A so I've only used tight sports bras before, but now I'm planning a cosplay that bares my shoulders and maybe some of my chest. I want to know if either of these binders will work better/be more comfortable than taping over a bandeau. Basically I don't want to spend money on this if they'll give me same compression as a sports bra and be less comfortable.

!!!!never ever use ace bandages or duct tape please just use a normal binder pretty much all of the other binding techniques are extremely dangerous and with ace bandages you could seriously hurt yourself
youre better off spending the money & please get a good binder!! read lots of reviews & stuff (theres a tumblr all about chest binding)

Guys this is important, please do NOT use ace bandages or tape to bind. You run so many health risks by doing that and health over cosplay please and thank you.

Always use a proper binder from a certified site! Beware of the super cheap binders on ebay because most of them are very bad for your ribcage. ' x'

That looks like tummy compressor. Not a chest compressor.
The only compression shirt I'm able to recommend (Because it's the only one I've ever owned)
is this one http://www.underworks.com/men/compre...p-chest-binder
It works really well and it isn't too much. Other than that there are guides online on how to make your own kinds of binders with fabrics and some elastic I believe (I can't guarantee the safety of each guides though).

You probably aren't using the correct size or wrong type. You also kinda need to lift your boobs to the side to make them look more like pecs and less like flattened boobs.... It almost sounds like you are using a shirt that compresses the stomach which pushes up the boobs and ends up making them seem bigger....

Do you have a link to the binder you're using? Also when you got your binder did you measure under the bust and on the bust (like for a bra) and used the median as your guide on buying the right size?

i got this one i think : http://www.underworks.com/men/compre...p-chest-binder
so its not a stomach one.

i think i have a L or XL and i'm a 38 bra but a
around breast 4-1 42inches
under breast - 39 inches
and it was tight on me so, i dont think smaller would do me any good nor bigger. It made me look Bigger and i'm a high B cup.
