A tutorial FlyingPanda4 and I made a while back. Re-uploaded! God this file is huge...
Now, this thing is great for people who crossplay often. It's always a pain to have to carry around tenser wraps and spend 10-20 minutes pining your chest down. Not only is this only one piece, it breaths with you, and is fast and easy to put on! Less pain, easier to deal with, what's not to like!?!
On a side not, I would recommend that more active crossplay/ cross dressers add straps to keep it from feeling like/ actually falling down.
If you have any questions feel free to comment or send me a note and I'll try to answer them to the best of my abitlity.
PLEASE DO NOT REPOST
I do have it up on tumblr! So if that's your thing you can reblog it here easiersaidthansewn.tumblr.com/…
EDIT: Due to feedback I will assume it works on all chest sizes. Don't quote me on that though.
To an extent, that’s actually not true. There is a risk that all girls take by binding; it is greater or smaller depending on the method in which you use. This is actually one of the significantly safer methods. Some of the main concerns in relation to binding are limiting breathing, cutting and irritation of skin and with some methods it can even bruise ribs. Ace bandages (or tenser wraps) are the most popular method of binding, and unfortunately one of the least safe. When I was an inexperienced cosplayer I did use this method and I am extremely lucky not to come out with any injuries. I did however, experience shortness of breath and pain under my bust because my binding had slide down and constricted my rib cage.
The tutorial for the method you see above is created with elastic. The more your rib cage expands with breathing the more the elastic expands with it. This way you can breathe without any pain or problem! As for constricting of your rib cage, because this is one piece it is very easy to adjust, you can even add straps to stop it from slipping all together.
I know that the method above is nowhere near as good as professional binders, and to anybody who plans to bind every day I would suggest buying one. This is however, reasonably secure and will not harm you at all in the long run.
(Hope you can understand me. My English is not good, I know that...)
Thank you so much!
i love you for making this! *__* you guys are geniuses finally something easy and comf....
although its not about making this binding, do you have any idea how i would make a small holsterish thingy for my leg? it'd go under my skirts and on my thigh, and it'd have to be pretty thing (not bulky) and be able to put simple things in it without it showing from my skirt xD
The only thing I'm worried about is that it won't work as well as I'm quite busty.
But, with straps on I think it should work.
Do you think it is possible to sew it in suck a way that the binder gets...tighter? at the bottom? Or maybe sewing on an additional elastic piece?
Also, what fabric did you use for the front? Is it stretchy or....non-stretch?
