Chest binder tutorial by MissLia500 Chest binder tutorial by MissLia500

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/…

Happy Crossplaying :D

EDIT: Due to feedback I will assume it works on all chest sizes. Don't quote me on that though.

Hello!! I'm almost positive I've made one of these for myself, though I thought it was on tumblr?? Either way, I really adore the binder I made for myself with this, and I was planning on starting to make binders to sell to people as a part of my business. My business is not-for-profit, and the proceeds go to help genderqueer people that don't have the money to buy binders, transition materials, and safe housing. I was wondering if you would be okay with my using this process to make those binders? If you'd like, I can certainly provide you credit for the process, and even link to it if you'd prefer.

Either way, thank you for the process!! I love the binder I made with it. :)

Hi :) I did post this on tumblr so it's possible you could see it there. As long as I'm credited (a link preferably) I would be happy for you to use this process to support such a important cause. Also, If you do continue with this organisation, I'd really like to be kept updated on the process.

It did pretty good. There's always a certain amount you can't squish, but I managed to get pretty dang flat. The nice thing with this is it kind of spreads things out. I got pretty close to your picture.

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. :D (Big Grin)
