- you are just as beautiful and worthy without
- at first, it’s good to try to bind only a few hours at a time to let your body get used to it
- try not to sleep in your binder if you can help it
- if it hurts, it’s probably too tight
- it can be tempting to get a size too small, but please don’t!
- binding damage isn’t just severe discomfort
- it can permanently damage your body
- if your binder tends to roll up try either
sewing fabric to the bottom, to make it longer, so you can tuck it in
- if your binder presses on your diaphragm and causes discomfort, try cutting a small slit at the bottom of front mid-section
- ace bandages, tape, and other common forms of binding are discouraged, not for binder companies to earn money, because they can do even more damage than a tight (actual) binder
- OR layering “sports bras” works too!
- there are binding bathing suits! (there weren’t when I wanted one)
- there are tons of blogs, including mine who are open to questions and rants about binding, and the pains & psychological effects it can have on some
