i have been binding almost every day for a little over a year now. i have recently noticed a change in the texture and look or the skin on my chest. my skin seems to have aged- for lack of a better explanation- i guess. i have a lot less elasticity in the skin now and there are dark marks that looks like my chest has been stretched in some areas. my chest also seems a lot more malleable. i know my skin has a history of not being awesome, but are there any other guys who have experienced this and can give me some advice? is this reversible, i was hoping to get keyhole or peri in the future? is there something i can do to help with elasticity?
Hey guys, Riley here.
It’s heading into summer, and I’m starting to have troubles with my binder. I get eczema from eating sugar, and what with the sweat and heat I get incredibly bad rashes between my chesticles and my chest. My Mother suggested wearing a cotton sports bra under my binder, but also to find out whether or not I can buy a cotton binder.
So, the question is, is it possible to buy a cotton binder, or a binder that is majority cotton?
If you have an answer, or just want a friend, my link is below. And thank you all for your feedback, and for being awesome.
Hi, I’m a fairly large-chested male (36C/D) and I’m having some issues with binding. I have an Underworks binder, the double-front compression tank top style something something… Anyway, the binder by itself is totally counterproductive, so I’ve taken to taping underneath the binder. It’s really effective, but, as expected, the tape leaves awful blisters along my torso and it can get pretty painful and doesn’t allow for multi-day binding. I was wondering if y’all had some binding advice. I saw some people taping over their binder, I think, but the way it was accomplished was similar to using an Ace bandage and that presents worse health concerns that some skin damage. I’ve considered getting the Frog Bra and trying that under the binder, but I wouldn’t want it to not work and be a waste of money. I’m working on a bit of a tight budget, so my options are limited.
If you’ve got some advice, please send a message to reesesandkeeses.tumblr.com
Thanks in advance!
Hey everyone! I’m Kai, 18 and pre-everything and I only recently starting coming out. I am part of a big online Harry Potter community and they are all amazing and supportive about it, but I am having a few issues at home. I told my mum on Sunday (30th) and she has been asking me for months if I just ‘want to be a bloody guy’ or something, since I have dressed so masculine most of my clothing purchases over the past few months have been menswear (I am luckily a fairly tall transman). However she didn’t take it well, and claimed it was all down to my hormones being out of whack (I have too much Testosterone for a female body anyway). I agree with her, but in the other direction. And she is insisting that I at least talk to the doctor about trying to take female hormones (again) to try and sort out my system. At the end of the day, I am not doing this because I get dysphoric enough as it is with my smaller chest and such, but I was wondering if any guys out there have any tips on what to say to her? To try and help her understand?
Another thing I was wondering about is binders. I need a new one because my old one is all stretched and just doesn’t bind anymore to the extent where I have to use bandages (not Ace ones, just the sort that are wrapped around you when you get an injury but they are really not that good and are the most annoying thing when I don’t get it wrapped to the right place/tight enough. Now while this makes me much flatter, it is uncomfortable and takes too much time. I am looking at getting the tri-top from Underworks as many have recommended it but I was wondering, are they any good for the more overweight guys like me? Because honestly I am concerned about it rolling up too much! Anyone able to help, please?
Hey, Constantine here on Topless Tuesday! More and more days go by were my existing feel as a living hell, but there are good days too. More people knows about what I’m going through, though they still have a hard time remembering all the right things.. Some teachers on school also knows, but there aren’t much they can do. The only thing I need, is money!
But the good news! An awesome guy on Tumblr has offered a free binder to me, and I simply can’t wait to get it!!
But pre-everything, single, 17, hit me up, always up for a talk!
I had a thought and it goes like this..
My partner and I are thinking about making custom made and just general singlet binders because there’s no sellers in Australia.
To explain it better, it’s a binder built into a singlet so you can wear just that on hot days and not overheat or even build binders into tshirts as well.
We haven’t started making them yet due to lack of current time and distance.
If anyone has thoughts/suggestions/interest just send me a message here
It’d be excellent to get some ideas flowing :)
Anyway, my name is Tay, I’m 19, pre T and an Aussie :)

I do have 2 older binders laying around my house. They are Underworks style 997 size Large. One black and one white.
Hey, this is Nick. It’s my first time posting, and I have a question. My binder, an Underworks tri-top, has developed a small “pull” on the seam (pics here and here). This is only the second time I’ve worn it, but I didn’t notice it the first time. It’s not obvious, but it does show through t-shirts. Does anyone have any advice on what to do to fix it?
