Dunno if I would call it hate, but its deffinatly noticeable when people just don't get it, there seems to be a level of imidiate dissaproval... whatever it is, I'm truly thankful for people who try, even if they dont get me or it, they try. Its very important to know the difference. .

The Thread Damage B.I.N.D.e.r is a binder that is made so that it is form fitting and functional, like a second skin, but is also cool enough to stand on its own as a tank top. These binders were created because I'd had such a hard time in the past and I thought "I can't be the only one" so I asked...I asked what people were looking for, as far a garments were conserned, that would feel the most affirming. The resounding reply was for binders, people were complaining about everything from fit, breathability, to allergies, ect.. B.I.N.D.e.r is . customizable with you choice of Plain and printed fabric . Reversible Its like 2 binders in one! The point here is to have a binder that is fitting and functional but also cool enough to stand on its own as a tank top/muscle shirt. . Each binder is made from Front: 100% cotton Back: power mesh/solid (optional) Straps: 1.5" soft woven elastic. Add support to the binder encircling the shoulder from under the arm around the outside of the chest. .

Before the giveaway I wanted to make something clear. I hate the term "plus size" I think it sounds derogatory. I was looking for a better term and stumbled across @timgunn who coined the genius term and I've stuck with it. .

For custom binders, or for those larger than DD, here is a simple chart . . Continue from last post... . So, with this gratuitous shape defined, here is the issue; the binder size that will contain all your chest tissue will also have to be solid backed as the mesh cannot contain it, but other fabrics can. . This is the problem with an very large chest. A binder - typically isnt going to have the proper coverage that is required to be secure. A binder big enough to contain an D or larger will be too large and will need to be custom measured. A too large binder therefore does not hold the under-bust, but instead allows the bust to slide down the chest wall to a lower position under the binder with the potential to create pain and discomfort. .

A better binder chart. Needed to make sure I had everything together. I learned so much this past 3 weeks. Its been a super fun blast. There has been so much to consider and change in the last few weeks and I'm so greatful for all the engagement. . I wanted to share a lil of what i learned. . The actual shape of your bust can have an enormous impact on how a binder will fit and look. Basically, there are several different shapes. This is very important because most manufacturers only consider the "ideal" bodytype (whatever...). However there are several shapes that nees to be considered, some are very common, and others are more unusual. When making a binder selection, it is very important that you know your shape. . (round) (standard) This archetypal bust shape is just that – the standard. The bust is full and round coming to a small point at the nipple. This is the shape most "sought-after", and the shape most binder manufacturers use when designing. Most trans men and other non binary folks will not have this archetypal shape. . (Asymmetric) Uneaven bust mean you are not of equal size. This is very common if the size difference is one cup size or less. An uneven bust can also occur during HRT and can cause your breasts to contract unevenly. IF you are an athlete and use one arm more than the other, this too can cause uneven breast sizes. . (Slender) (athletic) The base is typical, but the bust shape is more condensed sometimes with the conical shape. This conical shape typically doesnt have any issues with flattening out the front of the binder. Conical shapes tend to exist in the smaller cup sizes (B cup size or less). . (Tear) ( bell) (relaxed) Also known as “ball-shaped” it is a shape that occurs over time. Occurs with large cup-sizes (C cup or larger). (where your breast meets your chest wall) is one circumference size, but further down your circumference becomes larger No one starts out with this shape, Also, chests with this shape can be overly large for the body’s frame and thus both touch in the center and extend beyond the sides of the body. .

So guys, gals, internet pals. I'm sorry I'm gettin in so late but I did a thing! I want to provide the best binder I can so I did a lot of reserch on chests...And oh boy did I find a lot of stuff out. Mostly that no two boobs are alike and that means that they need special consideration for every one. It's been a long couple days but I needed to finish this project. . I feel there is a lesson to be learned here... I've been so impatient to get these binders together that I messed up. I got overwhelmed and for the last few days I just wanted to take it easy, but if I had I wouldn't have learned so much! . Its like I got 90% of the way then got tired. Thats what happens when people dont take the time to rest properly, rest is a key component in mental health. Without it even the simplest tasks seem daunting. Take care and rest easy knowing that the hard work is there for us to push past our excuses and reach our goals. .

Thanks so much for the feedback on the binders, if it wasnt for this person,I couldnt have understood what this bodytype needed in order to bind. I feel like this is a huge mistep within the fashion industry...not paying attention to everyone who has a body, only some people with the "perfect" body....all bodies are perfect. .

So some people asked for a before and after of my binders. To show the amount of support they give... This is a new friend (no instagram) who is 38 DDD. Im very thankful that they came forward to help out... I discovered that they needed a stronger back than the mesh could provide and after several attempts we finally came up with this piece that has a solid back, but it aint gonna break down... so very happy that I failed the first few times and didn't give up. .
