Half Tank Binder
Here's what the makers of B.I.N.D.e.r have to say:
Materials: Twotone, mesh, hypoallergenic, machine washable, cotton, powermesh, non toxic, dryer friendly, woven elastic, Black, breathable, tank top
Each B.I.N.D.e.r. is reversible with hidden seams/French seams so there is no excess bulk. The original B.I.N.D.e.r. feature heavy duty straps for a comfortable secure fit. This B.I.N.D.e.r. gives even support all the way around your body.
Making sure the wearer is comfortable and affirmed is key to a good B.I.N.D.e.r. thats why I have worked personally with members of the community and listened what they have to say about binders, to create the best product possible.
THREAD DAMAGE B.I.N.D.e.r
•Add support to the binder encircling each shoulder from under the arm along the outside of the chest.
•You should be able to slip a finger comfortably between your shoulder and strap.
•If binder straps dig into you then the binder is too small or you may need a strap length that provides better support.
•Straps should be comfortable and stay in place.
Main: The body of the B.I.N.D.e.r. should give even support all the way around your body.
•Front: provides the primary support,
•Back: Power mesh.
•You should be able to run a finger snugly under the binder but feel comfortable when you’re seated.
•The body of the B.I.N.D.e.r. should do most of the work.
How to measure:
You’ll need a sports bra or nothing, as the chest should lay at the midpoint between your shoulders and elbows.
1. Chest: Using a soft measuring tape wrap the tape snug around your chest at the fullest point.
2 Under Chest: Measure around your rib cage, directly under your bust.
Be careful to keep the tape level to the ground from front to back.
Take a snug measurement across the fullest of your chest from Armpit to armpit.
Lean to one side to find your natural crease, measure from the armpit to your natural crease
What to look for:
Binder is too small:
•If there is pulling, pinching, or chaffing (especially under the arms) the binder is too small.
•If the binder is too tight when standing or sitting, it’s too small and can damage the rib cage. Binder is too big:
•If the binder puckers in the front you may have a binder that is too big and may need a binder with less coverage.
•If it’s riding up in the front or back the binder is too loose.
