2 Very Easy DIY Binders
1: The classic tights/leggings binder
2: Deconstructed sports bra
You may have seen people recommending layering up sports bras to bind your chest, however this gets lumpy, heavy and very uncomfortable after a while. Here is how to make the more user-friendly alternative.
1: Get yourself a padded sports bra. These usually cost around £5 from a supermarket.
They look something like this:
2: Turn it inside out
3: On the inside of the ‘cup’, cut a small hole in the places marked red. The holes do not need to be any bigger than the top of your thumb.
4: Inside each cup is a triangle of padding which looks like this
Very carefully remove the padding through the holes you have made
This step is easier than it looks - I promise
5: you can sew up the holes afterwards if you want to, but it’s not necessary
6: Wear your binder back-to-front for the best results!
