All of our binders just got a redesign! They now feature: more even compression, flatter and more secure fit, comfortable hidden seams and smooth edges, more streamlined angled straps to ease tension on the shoulders and for a greater range of motion, and a shorter line to eliminate rolling.
Binders are used to compress the chest tissue. Some are made to be used under clothes and some are opaque and can be used to swim. The powermesh offers moderate binding while allowing for some flexibility to make sure breathing is not restricted.
Binders will fit very tightly when you first get them, and will relax over the first few wears.
It was a bit of a wait to receive, but I knew that when I ordered so no problems there. It fits great and is super comfortable. It's definitely a lighter bind for bigger chests, but works great for daily use in a way that full compression binders just don't. No pain at all. Definitely my go-to.
Everything I’ve looked for in a binder! Perfect amount of compression. Not too restricting. Custom made to my body. Just order yourself one already. You deserve it.
I was ordering things from a few makers to see what could be done to make summers in our warming world more bearable while binding, and also to replace my old worn out gc2b racerbacks. This has become my go to binder for days when I'm not feeling great, as it is very comfortable. If I had a place to swim I felt comfortable in, I'd be wearing this for sure.
-Athletic fabric dries quickly and breathes great
-perfect for heat and workouts
-craftsmanship is absolutely pristine- whomever sewed this knew their shit.
-feels like it'll last
-It's a very light bind- its better than a sports bra not because its a higher compression than I remember, but because the cut is such that things are compressed in a better way. Honestly it's genius- but yeah if you're trying to pass -unless you're naturally small this probly isnt going to be your daily wear.
-it can be hard to tell the back from the front without laying it flat and comparing the layers.
I recommend this garment as a part of a larger wardrobe that includes some heavier binders, there is no one binder for every occasion. For what I need it for, this is a good garment and I would replace it if it was eaten by a hyena or something.
I have scoured the internet for the right binder for my daughter with body dysmorphia. This one is amazing. The fabric, the fit, the style-perfection!
Fit is amazing (I put in my custom size) and compression is great, I love my silhouette when I wear this. Very well made and worth it. So happy with my first binder.
I love how this feels—while like any similar garment, the seams around the arms and shoulders can rub the skin uncomfortably, I’ve noticed this less as I’ve worn my binder more. The color is a really good match for me and is unnoticeable under almost all my clothing.
I chose to do a custom fit. This is the reason I ended up going with Origami Customs over other brands. I love that a binder made to my measurements is the exact same price as one made with standard measurements. The bind itself is really nice and I feel comfortable wearing my binder underneath just a thin t-shirt in warmer months.
I didn’t have any issues with delivery or customer service. I think the delivery estimation is super reasonable and my package actually ended up arriving early, which was a lovely surprise.
I wholeheartedly recommend this company to anyone looking at purchasing a binder.
I have no complaints, this is the binder of my dreams! Fits great, doesn't itch for me at all! For reference, I got a S and my chest measures 32DD.
I used to buy a bra sold by Title 9 called the Frog Bra that had a more pronounced flattening effect than any other bra I've seen. When those became permanently unavailable, I wasn't sure what I was going to do. I was thrilled to find Origami, and even more thrilled to receive and try on this item. The fit is different from anything I've used before - the shoulder straps are placed a little wider - and I wasn't sure that was going to work for me, but it does. The elastic or seems around my torso are slightly scratchy, so that would be my suggested improvement. All in all, I am very happy with this item, and will buy more of them.
When I contacted OrigamiCustoms because my son did not fit the standard sizes listed in the size table, they immediately responded with telling us to insert their measurements in the instructions box when we made our order. Pleasantly surprised when the binder came in, it fit my son perfectly!!! I will be reordering again and recommend to all people looking for binders!!!
It's the tightest binder I own but the fit is so good that it's still comfortable.
It's effective and feels secure. It's the one I reach for when the dysphoria is worst.
I ended up deciding to go custom on this. I was nervous, as this was my first custom garment of any kind - I was very careful to follow the measurement instructions exactly. Wait time was about 2 months before shipping. Well, I had no reason to worry. The fit was amazing - perfect in width around my (very large) chest, but not loose around my (comparatively slim) shoulders, long enough in my (tall) torso... I was blown away. This binder gets me the most naturally flat I've ever been, even compared to binders that advertise themselves as binding completely flat. If you've ever been let down by standard sized garments from other retailers, it's worth it to go custom! Highly recommended.
this binder is very comfy - the racer back gives nice shoulder range of motion, and and I don’t feel too squeezed! Despite being on the stretchier side, it flattens my chest very nicely. The mesh makes it cool in the summer.
Fits comfortably, doesnt restrict movement at all! Binds nicely and allows the skin to breathe more than a traditional binder
Amazing product! Super well crafted, very sturdy but also comfortable. After testing binders from different companies, highly recommend this one!
I may have ordered a size that was slightly too small using old measurements, but after I get the binder on I really like the fit!
So happy. Very glad I went custom and that there wasn’t a charge for that. It made a big difference. The color is lovely and the texture feels really good too.
I ordered a customised fit, and it fits so comfortably and well on my body.
It doesn’t compress my chest tightly, so my chest ends up being not as flat as I’d like it to be but I feel like it is an advantage because the binder lets me breathe and move without any discomfort or pain.
The fabric is really nice and the tailoring is very well done.
I looked for a long time for a binder that would work for me. I struggled more and more with over the head binders and then couldn't wear one at all due to a shoulder injury. The ability to take this binder off without going over the head was a life saver. No more feeling trapped. And so worth getting the custom fit. Thank you all so much!
I've been unable to bind due to being fat and having severe asthma. I was worried to spend $80+ on a binder that I might jave an asthma attack in and not be able to easily get off.
This binder is perfect.
I can get it off with one hand- or even just unclasp it in an emergency situation and not have to lift it over my head AND because it's custom fit it fits ME!
Popular binder largest sizes aren't inclusive for me but being able to buy from a small business that can make a binder that fits me, its accessable to someone with health concerns, and the compression isn't exasperating my asthma is AWESOME.
The shipping was much faster than I expected too.
perfect my boyfriend loves it
