@Yunca: Like I said, just wear a sports bra instead. :] Doesn't even have to be a smaller size. I'm sure no one is going to grope your chest and, in turn, complain. XDD

I'm a D and can bind without pain (I use one of delemma's boob squishers, and it's one of her older design ones too). However, you can be rather sensitive AFTER taking them off for a day or so. Remember that it IS un-natural for your girls to be smooshed down like that. I think more of the pain comes from pressure on the ribs rather than the boobs themselves. Also, some people ARE more sensitive - and if you're binding around the time of the month (when they are tender and also bigger anyway) there is a chance it can hurt.

It all comes down to knowing what works for you and what doesn't. I try to make sure I'm only doing one day of squishing at the con if I can help it, that way the girls get a (much deserved) break.

Transmen have some great tips! http://www.ftmguide.org/binding.html (many do it every day while waiting for chest surgery, so the advice is aimed at long term use)

I'm sure someone else will give a better answer, but generally afaik the widest bandage you can find since it helps spread the erm. load? and stops it from cutting in. The wider it is the less likely is is to roll up in the middle. Thickness I don't think is crucial as long as it's strong enough not to tear/break.

^what jp said c:

widest you can find.
if i have to use several layers of bandages, i use the widest ones first, then the second widest, etc... and the narrowest bandages last. the widest bandages i have with me are 13cm in width. (:

if things look a little 'lumpy' after binding, i find using the narrower bandages over the wider bandages help to even things out a little. alternatively, a close-fitting singlet or similar does the trick.

When I used bandages I wore a leotard over the top which helped to even it out.

Biggest problem for me is can't find any bandage wider than 2 inches. I've tried pharmacies and sports stores. Anywhere else I could look?

@Ravin: Try, like, Anglesea clinic? It's probably a bit better than pharmacies.

This may sound stingy or whatever, but I'd prefer trying one out first to buying it straight away. XD

Post By Huntress. 25/04/10, 04:12 pm

I have to say to those concerned with playing characters with smaller busts for Cosplay - I like to use the term "willing suspension of belief" this means that others will willingly overlook the fact that you're not quite the right shape as you have the guts to wear the costume and have recreated it as accurately as possible.

Personally I Cosplayed as Leeloo from the Fifth Element a couple of years back and do not have the A-cup that Milla Jovovich has (opposite end of the scale - tiny across the back I'm more like a 6-8 than the smallest 10 you can get and an E-F depending on brand) and no one mentioned anything. Also noone mentioned to me the fact that I didn't have a perfectly flat stomach (I'm a size 6 pant-wise but my stomach refuses to co-operate and be flat.) I blame it on being an hourglass.

At this point I choose not to Crossplay (mostly haven't found a costume I WANT to crossplay) so I choose female characters or creatures where my bustline works to my advantage. A friend and I did the goblin king and a fiery from the Labyrinth and I dressed in the fiery costume where my curves were an advantage.

Though I have to say, having checked out a few of the links and Static's corset-type suggestion I would probably be more inclined to look at male costumes in future. (However, I'm a sucker for group projects where this isn't entirely necessary.)

My 2 cents worth... =D Women: Flattening the chest. - Page 14 65988

i agree with huntress. i've cosplayed stephanie from lazy town and hell some times you just have to go with what you've got. for comfort sake.
just change some necklines make it more flattering/slimming and you'll be surprised what you get away with.

@ravin its not stingy its ok, i understand that you want to try things, i did too. but it was just a reminder, just incase.

Is thankfully not big chested!
What about crossplays that require open shirts?
(Such as Luffie from One Piece or... Sasuke from Naruto Shippuden?)

...never used to have a problem with chest-binding... but then my breasticles decided to do a bit of growing and I got a bit more junk in the trunk, thus it's harder for me to crossplay now Women: Flattening the chest. - Page 14 463216 still do it anyways. Found duct tape most effective around a layer of cloth =3

oh yeah, just a bit of a tip for those of you gals that are planninng on binding for the first time... start binding for a few hours every few days for about 3-4 weeks before the "official day" so it'll be easier on you [like.. easier to breathe and you'll feel a lot more comfortable if you're used to it] ^.^
