To our beloved community, WE NEED YOUR SIGNAL BOOST.
The Binding Health Project is currently seeking participants to take a survey on chest binding. It is intended for female-assigned-at-birth (FAAB) and intersex people who are 18 years and over who have bound or currently bind their chest.
Our goal is to use the results from this survey to advocate for the health of individuals who chest bind. We hope to build a knowledge base that currently does not exist for people who bind, their providers, and the communities that support them. Thank you so much for your time and participation in this survey!

Since I was just talking about binders, here’s a thing for anyone else.
OKAY NO EVERYONE HOLD YOUR HORSES HAVE I GOT SOME GREAT SHIT FOR YOU!!
you see these binders? They may not look much, but these fucking things bind like the CHAINS OF HELL THEMSELVES. I’ve got HUGE tits, up in the DD range, but this simple little binder works some goddamn MAGIC on them. It’s comfortable, it binds, it provides perfect support and whatever the hell else.
These are perfect for both trans* and crossplay-related purposes! What’s the catch though, right? They’re probably super expensive?
i use this binder and as a trans boy i can say first hand that they work really well and i would highly recommend them if you are short on cash and need a good binder. i’m about a D cup and these make me look virtually flat.
ATTENTION. PLEASE DO NOT BUY THESE. THEY’RE DANGEROUS AND CONSTRICT YOU (NOT IN A GOOD BINDING WAY, IN THE VERY VERY LIFE HARMING WAY.)
Please read this. It’s VERY important and it seems to apply to ANY binder that uses that above picture. PLEASE STOP SENDING THIS AROUND THEY’RE NOT GOOD TO USE.
These are what I wear, and I’ve had no issues. They’re just as comfortable as my more expensive one, and bind *much* better. Only downside I’ve seen is the thin fabric of the binder itself can cut into your skin, but a thicker piece of cloth as padding takes care of it. Yeah, it took some breaking in, but it’s elastic. I wear this to martial arts, and it’s not restrictive at all.
The binder fabric is cheap, yes. I can see mine fraying after *months* of daily wear. Maybe it’s because I have a very small chest as is so there’s less pressure on it? For me, it was worth the $10. I rarely even wear my more expensive one anymore because it just doesn’t work as well.
Take-home message from me is these are ok but they’re cheap as hell. Binding in general is an inherently risky and uncomfortable prospect; it probably won’t feel great regardless of what you wear. Elastic, velcro, or zippers will chafe, and a full shirt like this is hot as shit in the summer. But something like this is still worlds better than an ace bandage or duct tape. So, be careful, be smart, and shop around. What works for me won’t work for everybody, and these work beautifully for me.
