Binder suggestions?

Okay well i've been looking around at reviews for binders and i just can seem to find the best one. @.@
I really need some suggestions on whether i should buy from T-kingdom, underworks, or anything else.
I'm sure there are others who have the same problem so this thread is for anyone.

Nah that thread is well out of date you want the new thread here:

http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=223461

And as for which binder is best for you it depends on what size you are and what kind of top you are going to be wearing.
If you are a small size and wearing a loose jacket you might be able to get away with a sports bra or the elastic method mentioned in the thread
If you are bigger but still looking to wear normal style tops then underworks would be your best bet. they have various styles in short and long lengths up to the max compression tri-top.
If you are going to be wearing strapless tops or prefer having velcro fastening to make getting into and out of your binder easier then I would recommend LesLoveBoat. they have a massive range of different styles and lengths and colours!

I would not recommend t-kingdom as I have heard they only really work for small chest sizes and the ones I have handled are literally just a piece of normal large elastic across the front to bind with which is seriously not worth the money

Underworks!!! don't use ACE bandages they will start to hurt within the first 5 minutes. And they are bad for you.

You don't really have to get a binder. I read this off another forum... Insted of Ace Bandages, use 3" wide elastic from JoAnns. Also, don't rap all the way around. Rap in a X form on the chest area and then a = form on your back...
Sorry if i didn't explain that too well....
