Binding for CROSSplaying Germany (Hetalia)?

Im not sure if this would count as a CROSSplay...but the reason im asking is because id like to cosplay as casual!Germany. Im pretty sure id be able able to get all of my stuff easily, but should I use ace bandages to bind myself? My...uhm...chest isnt that big but it would be noticable if I were wearing a black muscleshirt/tank top. And because im actually quite petite; 4'11, and I dont really look my age (19), so id like more of a guyish look somewhat so I can pull it off, I guess?

(like mentioned, the guy wearing the black shirt) ---> http://www.capsulecomputers.com.au/w...4-review-1.png

I wouldn't recommend ace bandages. They have a history of leaving bruises and even broken ribs in their wake. Duck tape is also a bad idea since it doesn't have any give. You can always go the route of buying a binder made specifically for your chest from a store like Underworks, but if you're like me and don't have an extra 35 bucks to spend, I'd check out the binding threads in the crossplay forum. There's two main ones, and several smaller threads floating around. They should be able tell you all you need to know about binding, as well as a safe method for using ace bandages if they're your only option. Good luck with your crossplay!
