Okay so my binder finally came and I’ll do a quick review in case it’s helpful to anybody.
It’s this binder here from ebay which I’ve yet to see any negative reviews about on tumblr. It’s literally 12-13 dollars WITH shipping, if you don’t do express or whatever. It does take a few weeks because it’s coming from china, I think? But the packaging is definitely discreet, all you can tell from it is that it’s an article of clothing, and even if someone opened it, it’d just look like a tank top (which it is).
The sizing chart says that Asian size is generally two sizes smaller, but I got a medium because the measurements for medium were mine. However the binder may be a bit small (it’s my first real binder though, so maybe I just don’t know shit). But the fastening is with hooks (like the kind you use to fasten bras, but a lot more rows of adjustment and on the side rather than in the back). So if you went a bit bigger just to be safe, you could definitely get it fastened tighter down. To put it in perspective I’m 5’7”, about 145-150 pounds, and wear a 34D cup.
It IS pretty hard to get on, although like I said, mine just might be a bit small, and it’s my first binder. However it’s more comfortable than any sports bra or even normal bra that I’ve ever worn, and it actually does flatten well. As you can see, it squishes some fat by my underarms, which isn’t wonderful, but whatever, I’ll take it (and hopefully lose weight soon anyway).
Overall, I’d highly recommend it, the only situation I’m unsure of it being good for would be plus sizes, because it goes up to XXL, but as I said, the sizes are smaller, so unfortunately it’s probably not much help if you wear larger :/

Collection of information about binders - where to buy, where to find cheap or free binders, how to buy them if you don’t have a card or have trouble having them delivered, how not to bind, binding problems and solutions, how to swim and bind, and some other stuff. Basically, this is all information that is already out there, but I collected it into one post. Feel free to add or amend.
Ok so I dont know how many guys have an issue with the 3.5” Mr. Limpy looking HUGE in their pants because of the overly thick balls so I decided to do a little show-and-tell of what i did to solve this problem. Simple. Trim back the balls.
Heat up your stove element, place a non-cerated knife there untill its good and hot.
Hold you packer on its side and picture where you want to cut. I showed where i cut mine.
Now. Make sure you have that shit lined up. It cuts like a hot knife through butter
Make the cut.
Run it under cold water. Melted silicone is not fun to have on your skin. I did it.
You now have a packer that sits a bit better in your pants and doenst make you look happy to see every single person you see!
This can be used for any cyberskin packer that has balls that are too thick for your personal preference. Thanks for the tips Jasper!

people like to forget that straight people can be lgbt as well
It’s true. I’m one of those elusive people.
