Choosing a Binder

Welcome to our little page about how to choose a binder style! Even if it’s not your first time buying a binder, we hope this will help you out. Binders are technical garments and when choosing a style, there are few things to remember. Here’s a little guide to the best style choice based on your binding needs. (Remember! These are just suggestions! You are welcome to purchase any style you like!) 



  1. Not all binders will compress the same way. Some have more compression and some have less compression. Take a look at the list below for your ideal compression level!
  2. All of our binders are made with only stretch materials. We do this so that they are more comfortable and allow for more flexibility and breathing room. But this also means that there is a limit to how flat they can compress the chest.
  3. The more chest tissue a person has, the less able we are to create a completely flat front. 
  4. If you are choosing a binder with an opening, (Side Open Half Binder or Side Open Strapless Binder) it’s important to note that it does take some upper body strength to close the binder tightly around the body.
