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.
