Method of Compression

The binder is made of elastic fabric on the front and back and does not use a non-stretch panel to achieve compression. The strength of the elastic varies from high compression to low compression in all-elastic binders. All-Elastic Compression
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
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

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
A tank binder with thinner straps similar to traditional bra straps which can be adjusted. This can be especially helpful for people who are experiencing headaches from binding or people who have long torsos and need a customizable fit.. Adjustable Strap
These styles vary in strap width and appeal to people who are looking for a binder which supports wearing clothing designed for “feminine”expression. Femme-Styled
These styles are able to be worn with lower cut shirts and open button downs without being visible. V-Neck/Low Neckline
Compression shirts and high-compression sports bras are lower-compression options which leave more room for chest tissue thus exerting less pressure on the sternum than other binder garments. Compression Shirt/Sports Bra
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
When pre-made binders do not fit your body, having a binder made to your exact measurements or specifications may be your best option. Common reasons for needing custom binders are: small ribcage with large chest tissue, accommodating permanent medical devices, accommodating chronic conditions like hypermobility, pain conditions, or asthma Custom Designs
