Ancient Fish King / “Ebay Binder”
Binding: ★★★ _ _
Quality: ★_ _ _ _
I got a size up by accident so it’s quite loose. Bad quality but binds ok considering. The fabric started to become pilly and scratchy after a few months and parts of it are starting to tear, but you get what you pay for. I would be cautious about this binder. People have been experiencing lung problems after wearing these binders full time, and some have said that they’re no better than ace bandages. Fortunately I haven’t experienced any trouble, but I wouldn’t buy this again. This binder is fine if you’re only wearing it for cosplay or something, but if you really can’t afford anything better, maybe get a size up like I did.
Underworks Extreme MagiCotton Sports and Binding Bra / Underworks 310
Comfort: ★★★_ _
Binding: ★★ _ _ _
It’s alright. Sometimes it pushes everything to the middle of my chest and gives me a slight uniboob, but It supports my chest really well. This would be good for those who are looking for something half way between a sports bra and a chest binder. If you want to get it to work out in, I’d recommend getting a size up so you can breath. Also I wish the material was smoother because my shirt keeps clinging to it.
Underworks Tri-Top / Underworks 983

Binds really well! But sometimes it makes me feel like I’m going to die. Kind of feels like it’s made out of the same material lawn chairs are made out of, but my shirt doesn’t cling to it so it’s cool. It constricts my chest a lot so I take it off as soon as I get home, but boy oh boy does it bind well.
Only got this today so I can’t say anything about how it’ll hold up over time, but so far I’m really happy with it! It’s super soft and so comfy. It’s impossible to get on or off, and at first I was worried that it’d be too small for me, but once I got it on it fit perfectly. It creates a very slight uniboob effect and binds slightly less than the tri-top, but the comfort makes up for it. I wouldn’t recommend this to those with bigger chests because it doesn’t seem to cover me as much and I can imagine some having trouble with their chests “spilling out” a bit. I’m really happy with this though, and it’s going to replace my tri-top as my full-time binder.
Let me know if you have any questions!
