"Disability activists abandon their wheelchairs and mobility devices and crawl up the 83 stone steps of the U.S. Capital Building demanding the passage of the American with Disability Act, March 12, 1990."
I’ve seen a lot of pictures of people in binders and reviews of binders but it’s hard to find many comparisons between them. Since I have the privilege of being a middle-class person of decent financial means, I went out and bought seven different binders and took comparison pics of me in all of them. I’m hopeful that other folks of lesser financial means who want to hide their breasts can benefit from this review. These are not the most expensive binders; the priciest one was $35 (I couldn’t afford seven of the most expensive binders!). So I think most of these are within reach of most people.
I should note that I’m 5’6”, 185 pounds, technically “obese” (by like 1lb) with 36-DD breasts. A couple of high-level comment about all of these binders. None of them are truly comfortable for long-term wear, though not really more uncomfortable than wearing a bra all day (I’ve always hated those). The biggest problem with every one is that when I slouch they dig in below my breasts, either by rolling up or forming a crease. It’s not totally terrible but it means I end up pulling at the edge to try to readjust constantly. The other problem is that ALL of them give me some degree of uniboob - binder recommendations I’ve read say to tuck breasts down and to the sides but my experience is THEY DON’T STAY THERE. Breathing, walking, bending, moving in any way causes them to mibrate back up and to the center. Possibly this is because I bought only cheap and miderately priced binders, but I suspect more of it is just because I have DD breasts and in order for a binder to be big enough to contain my breasts and also still allow breathing it has to have enough give for them to move.
One final disclaimer here: I’m agender, genderqueer, non-binary - I’m not using these to “pass” as anything, just to feel more comfortable in my clothes and to feel a sense of control over my gender-expression. I don’t have any dysphoria over my breasts so I’m not using these for that reason.
Anyway, on to the set. More detail about the individual binders in photo descriptions:
holy shit THANK YOU. this is AMAZING.
