What is Binding?

Binding involves wearing tight garments to flatten out your chest. It’s a do-it-yourself option for changing your appearance so that it matches your gender expression. You may bind to feel more at ease in your body, feel more comfortable in your clothing or help others read your gender correctly.

Some people buy specially made binders. Others use sports bras. Find out more in Commonly Used Binding Methods.
