Sizes-Trans Binders FTM
I make binders according to these measurements:
X-SMALL (76-81cm) R250
SMALL (81 - 87 cm) R250
MEDIUM (87 - 92cm) R300
LARGE (92-97 cm) R300
EXTRA LARGE (97-102) R350
From XL I only make the extra long version (R50 extra). I leave slits at the side to fit the binder comfortably over your hips.
2XL (102-107) R350
3XL (107-112) R380
4XL (112-117) R380
The best measurement would be if you have an existing binder that fits snugly. Put it on your bed and measure it from under-arm to under-arm, and provide me with that measurement. I will make it exactly the same size, but please indicate that in your e-mail to me when you order: that that is the exact size you want. Also keep in mind that not all materials have the same stretchability, so there could be one centimetre or so difference.
Please measure yourself under-arm over the nipples and around your body. Where the measuring tape meets, will be your circumference size. You can wear a bra or sports bra when you measure. There is a play of 5cm for each size, the same as when you buy clothes in a shop. I make the binder 12cm smaller than your circumference in order to give you a snug fit. Please don't take the 12cm off yourself: just send me your measurement. I include instructions in your parcel how to make your binder smaller if you find it too loose-fitting. Make sure you don't take it in too much in the middle back - you won't be able to get it over your head. I make it 15cm smaller if you take the version with the hooks and claws.
You don't want this binder so tight that it cuts into you skin - it should fit comfortably. In order to get a feel for the fit, you can take your measurement with a measuring tape, cut a piece of bandage the same size, and place the bandage over your breasts. Now pull the bandage in with 12cm and feel how tight the binder will be over your breasts.
PLEASE NOTE: If you go to the gym regularly and developed your arm and shoulder muscles, but still have a small chest circumference, a small will not fit you, unless you buy the hook-and-claw version. If you buy the normal binder, you will split the seams trying to force it over your shoulders.
If you require a large size, please remember that the non-stretchable front panel will suppress your breasts, but it will hang loosely under the breasts. In that case (if you are large-chested) it is better to order the longer version that you can tuck into your trousers. The longer version is 23cm longer than the short version.
