We were fortunate enough to have some wonderful volunteers put their hands up to review some of the products we have in store. We will be collating and releasing these product by product - so stay tuned! As always we would love some more reviewers to help others in the community who aren't able to try before they buy. We value your input for products we would like to continue to stock that you enjoy!
Some takeaways from the Gender Bender Zip Front Half Binder reviews:
- Great for people with mobility issues
- Easy to get on and off
- Soft and robust (when compared with GC2B binders)
- Comfortable as an everyday binder
- Good if you find binding can be an uncomfortable process sometimes
- Best binder out of all the major brands tried by one of our reviewers (!)
Ross, AucklandGender Bender Zip Front Half Binder
One of the nicest things about transitioning has been the space to completely rethink how I deal with my breasts. As someone who's been in adult-sized bras since primary school, they've been a source of shame, irritation, back pain, dysphoria, and even occasional pride as I (and they) have grown. I must have spent thousands of dollars over the last 20 years on bras designed to hold them in, lift them up, push them out, strap them down, and contort them into whatever nonsensical shape has been decided will make me look "feminine". I've had running bras that looked like they were designed to be launched from a shipyard that still gave me terrible pain. It wasn't until I started to transition this year that I seriously entertained the notion that, hey, maybe I didn't actually need the several kilos of soft fat hanging off my front to be squidged into some approximation of pertness.

The zip-up binder by Agnes & Edie is a must-have for anyone who has musculoskeletal or similar issues with their shoulders and ribs.
Thank you again to Ross and Stephen for taking the time to make such detailed and careful reviews of the Gender Bender Zip Front Binder - you're both stars.
