Cost, ordering & Postage
In general I make use of a courier service - Aramex - available at all Pick n'Pay stores for R100 per envelope, delivery next day to your door. I have to draw your attention to the fact that if you live in a township, or further away than 50km from a big centre's Aramex office, they hand the parcel over to an agent for delivery which will take longer. It is better to then use your work address, or a friend's home address closer to the Aramax office. PostNet is also an option, but takes 2-3 working days to deliver. None of them deliver on public holidays or weekends. Unfortunately there are problems receiving money from neighbouring countries. If you can manage to get a few orders and make payment at your nearest South African town over your border, plus make payment there, it could be arranged.
I ONLY WRITE 'T-SHIRT' ON THE WAYBILL, AND MY E-MAIL ADDRESS WHICH IS JUST MY NAME AND SURNAME, SO THE CONTENT OF YOUR PARCEL IS CONFIDENTIAL.
S and XS is R250 each. All the other sizes are R300 each, except for the XL and larger which is R350. The 2XL and 3XL = R375, and 4XL = R400. If you want it longer, it will be an additional R50 (it measures 35 cm from under-arm to bottom seam). The pattern length for the short one is to just above the navel. Please see the photos of the different lengths. If you want the hook-and-claw version (open on the left side) that will be R35 extra.
If you order, don't forget to add the transport fee.
I have had a few cases where I custom-made chest binders, and when I notified the clients that it was ready for postage awaiting payment, the payment didn't arrive, and I ended up with stock that nobody else wanted. To avoid this capital lying in a drawer, I only make the binders once I have received proof of payment.

You can also pay at any Checkers for a small handling fee and send me the reference and pin number to retrieve it.
If you measured yourself incorrectly and ordered the wrong size, and by trying it on burst the seams, I can unfortunately not refund you. If you are unhappy that it fits too loosely, instructions are included on how to make it smaller yourself. Just make sure you can still get it over your head. Remember: you still want to breathe properly! It is very uncomfortable and hot to wear a garment that is too tight.
HOW TO TAKE YOUR MEASUREMENTS:
If you don't have a measuring tape, take a broad piece of bandage, lift your arms and place it over your nipples - where it meets, mark it and measure on a ruler. Cut it off there. Now take the bandage and pull it in with 12-15cm and it will give you an idea how it will fit. For the larger sizes it is recommended to take the longer version for R50 more and tuck it into your pants. Please don't take the 12-15cm off the measurement you give me! I mention this only so that you have an idea what it will feel like on.
