how a sports bra works

Sneaking in binders (without lying)

(If you’re not out to your parent(s)/guardian and they do the laundry)

1. Complain about how sports bras don’t work (not for binding, just in general) for about a month-a few weeks before you buy your binder

2. Buy binder (make sure you get the right size)

3. Wear binder (obviously)

4. If you’re asked what the binder is when they see it in the wash say its like a sports bra that “actually works” and how it “really straps your boobs down”

Idk some people can’t deal with lying so here you go? I hope this helps

Any recommendations for a trans man that wants to join the gym but can't leave my house without a binder? I have a size DDD chest which makes it hard to wear just a sports bra and I know how bad it is to work out in a binder.

Wearing a binder can be very restricting.  I think that if possible start your fitness journey at home.  It’s not just about going to the gym it’s about introducing some form of activity in your life, create a healthy diet and get plenty of rest. I know easier said than done.  Before I could even afford a gym membership I went to parks and did push-ups, pull-ups squats burpees mostly body weight work.  When I could afford the gym I had already lost 20 pounds and still was heavy.  After I went to the gym I wore large sweatshirts and a bra and walk on the last machine in the corner.  I have to be honest the journey wasn’t easy and still today as I am it has different challenges. As we evolve so do our challenges. 

I know in reality my mum probably wouldn’t react too terribly to me having a binder but im still irrationally scared of her taking it off me if she finds out

FTR: that binder thing was specifically because people keep drawing their skinny faves with these giant pin-up tits sticking out of the top of their binders and in general having no idea how sports bras vs binders work and it’s obviously fetish art disguised to be ‘progressive’ set out to remind us all that, don’t worry, this character still has tits 

binders don’t make you completely flat if you have a bigger chest or are a bigger person but the point was that binders aren’t made to show off boobs overflowing at the neck and seeing art like that makes me extremely uncomfortable 

Okay but now I’m thinking about the Doctor not knowing how she’s supposed to sleep on her stomach or why her back hurts (boobs are heavy, girl), and finding out how to style longer hair and having that longer hair constantly getting everywhere

AND OH MY GOD THE DOCTOR AND HER COMPANION CAN SHARE CLOTHES NOW. AND HER COMPANION CAN SHOW HER HOW FEMININE CLOTHING IS SUPPOSED TO WORK AND THAT SPORTS BRAS ARE THE THINGS OF THE GODS

I AM SO STOKED

Luckily

”Tomorrow?” Sam asked you as he passed you in the kitchen.

”Morning run!”

You groaned. “You are never going to let that go, are you?”
