Exclamation Newbie looking for Chest Binder!!

Hey, I'm new to the cosplaying thing and I really need a chest binder, not just for cosplay but for daily life too...
I'm a 38G in english sizing, so I'm not sure what I'm really supposed to be looking for. I've seen some online which do look good, but the problem is there have been very bad cases where they can break ribs, crush your lungs and all sorts. Especially if done amaturely with bandages and clingfilm and whatnot...
So I am looking for a actual vest type... thing, I can wear under costumes and shirts.

Anyon know where I can buy a really good one? Hopefully under about £50/$75??

All of these are good recommendations, especially the gc2b if you plan on using it for daily wear.

One thing to note about the Underworks binders, specifically the tri-top...is that it has the tendency to roll up. It isn't a huge deterrent, but it is something to be aware of, especially if you plan on wearing your binder for extended periods of time.
"People do not care. If you cannot keep up, you will lose everything."
“It’s not how tragically we suffer, but how miraculously we live.”
“This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.”
