Earlier I put up a post/link about a way to sign up for a free chest binder. Upon further investigation and some feedback from you, I realized the program is still fulfillling requests from September 2017 and has a long waitlist.
I decided to take the post down and will keep my eyes open for other options.
In the meantime, if any one has any affordable and safe options for binding, feel free to share 💛
Trans family – I saw this today and wanted to share. If you’re binding, it’s important to bind safely. Any trans-identified person who cannot afford or safely obtain a chest binder may apply for one, 100% free. You can also donate a new or gently-used binder to a trans person in need or donate $3 to the program. Learn more here.
This is me, in a slightly used binder I got from a friend. My name is Eri and I use they/them pronouns. Btw fun fact about my name, it literally means other or different in my native language (Finnish).
Spectrum Outfitters is a new company (Est 2017) which will be launching a short binder in February. Currently the resources for trans and non-binary people are usually from America which means that European people have to wait a long time, pay expensive postage fees and pay EU customs charges. WE ARE HERE TO CHANGE THAT. If you are from the UK or a European country or have followers that are please reblog this so that your trans and non-binary followers can see that this is an option for them so that they can bind safely without waiting or paying outrageous excesses. The more people that see this, the more we can sell, which means we will be able to provide more options and colours and sizes so that lots of different types of people and body types in Europe can benefit from this.
OTHER FEATURES INCLUDE-
Top of the range fabrics: Our outer fabric was used in team GB’s Cycling shorts by Adidas with Stella McCartney for the Rio Olympics. It is a high performance fabric designed to breathe and allow comfort when sweating and moving while maintaining compression. It is also suitable to swim in! There are two more top of the line fabrics used to create superior compression and to stop it stretching over time.
