Anonymous: Hey the jewish registration thing is not real. It was a disgusting prank but they will not have to register. This was not government sanctioned and they are looking for the people responsible.
just got my first binders in the mail! god, was it difficult getting into the first one…. are my shoulders unusually broad or something??
anyway, after managing to get it on i was fine wearing it for the first 15mins but now… omg.
i’m wondering if i got a size too small…. how can i tell?
Sizewise, how did your measurements (i.e. chest circumference) compare to the ones listed wherever you bought it? If you were near a size boundary and are having discomfort breathing, you should consider a size up - breathing difficulties are no fun :(
if it’s a pullover binder, I’ve heard those are hella hard to get on, just because they’re designed to be tight on your chest which is much narrower than your sholders, so they don’t stretch that wide well
The ones I’ve have had were all adjustable with a velcro tab on the side, so I can’t speak for pullovers, but generally they feel right when they’re tight enough that you feel pressure but can still take deep breaths easily. If you have trouble breathing or start getting shoulder aches, it’s probably too small/too tight.
You can try shifting to lower “belly breathing” rather than “chest breathing”, but if it’s causing trouble it might be worth trying a size up - a too tight binder can cause bruises, or even fluid buildup in the lungs, so be careful and take it off if you have significant discomfort.
