Founded in 2015, gc2b is a trans-owned company based in Maryland. gc2b’s founder, CEO, and designer—a Black and Latinx trans man—saw that the only binding options were uncomfortable and inadequate compression shirts designed for cis men. As an Industrial Design graduate, he used his experience in product design and his background in textiles to provide accessible, comfortable, and safer binding options designed by trans people, for trans people. gc2b binders were the first garments designed and patented specifically for gender-affirming chest binding.

Method of Compression

The binder uses a non-elastic fabric panel on the front of the binder to achieve compression. This provides a flattening effect without exerting pressure around the entire ribcage. This form of compression puts more compressive force into the sternum and less compressive force to the sides of the ribcage than all-elastic compression. No-Stretch Front Compression Panel
The binder's back panel is made of a lower compression/higher stretch fabric than the front panel. Both all-elastic and non-stretch panel compression may have lower compression rear panels Lower Compression Rear Panel

Garment Styles

A tank that ends at the mid-belly but is not long enough to tuck into your pants. I recommend this option if your tissue bulges out from the bottom of a 1/2 tank. Full-length Tank
A tank that ends a few inches below the bottom of your chest tissue. People with larger chests may find that their tissue bulges out the bottom Half-length Tank
A tank that can be tucked into the pants which can be helpful for people who want more body contouring or people who are experiencing their full-length binder rolling up. If keeping the binder down is still a challenge, shirt stays can be used for extra support. Tuckable Tank
Racerback tanks allow for the greatest motion of the scapula and are recommended whenever you are doing activities that demand significant shoulder movement. The straps of a racerback can exert more pressure onto the upper traps and neck muscles and can trigger headaches in some people. Racerback Tank
These binders are made of fabrics safe for wearing in the water. They will maintain their compression even when wet and the fabric will hold up to the wear and tear of the water. Rinsing the binder after swimming in chlorinated or salt water will extend the life of the binder. Water-Safe Binders
