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.
i think my saddest moment as an Australian was finding out that the rest of the world doesn’t say “never eat soggy weetbix” to figure out the order of the compass
I do “never eat sour whales”. Not sure where exactly that came from though. (Other people I know do “Never Eat Soggy Waffles” which is closer)
Question: Do some people actually sleep in bras?
I keep seeing articles debating whether or not it’s good to wear bras 24/7 but like why would people even be doing that in the first place? What am I missing here?
Was anyone else a little bit disappointed that the kick ass Lady Counsel Member turned out to be Natasha? Still love Natasha, but for a few glorious seconds, it was awesome to see an older woman come out of nowhere to kick ass.
Oh hell yes. For one glorious moment this movie was going to be the utter best thing ever made. And then…. well it was still cool but such a disappointment we didn’t get unexpected kick ass over 40 woman.
Did we ever even find out what happened to the counsel member?
def agree with you all there!
I was wondering, though, about the other asian council member guy who pulls a gun later to back her up: is he also a secret agent plant in costume or just a very well prepared council member?
