gaga and I bind the same way yo

God

damn it
Okay this REALLY pisses me off.
While it’s fantastic that the public media is showing their audiences that it’s okay to be transgendered and to bind and to present yourself in a way that is comfortable to you I keep seeing this bullshit where these people in the media are being shown as binding with tape, bandages, and other unsafe methods. You can’t tell these kids that it’s okay to bind with ace bandages and duct tape. It’s seriously NOT GOOD FOR YOU. Not to mention dangerous and at the very least uncomfortable. 
If you ever need to bind for ANYTHING please please PLEASE buy a binder. The cheapest ones out there are around $25 which is worth EVERY FUCKING CENT. I know for me just the binder doesn’t entirely cut it so in extreme cases I resort to using WIDE medical tape, don’t know where to get it because my mom gets it from the hospital but I’m pretty sure you can find it in drugstores. Medical tape is designed for bodies and won’t shift or contract or stretch and is much safer on the skin if you even need to put it there (which you shouldn’t lkdjslgkj)

aldldfgjlkhjlkjladsg please be safe guys. Gaga is p sweet ngl and I know binding like this makes it more obvious and gets the point across visually but if you’re ever going to bind please do it correctly so you don’t hurt yourself.

^^^ THIS
$30 for an underworks compression vest is money WELL SPENT. There’s the Big Brothers program for gently-used binders if money is an issue. Hell, use a too-small sports bra. Worst case scenario, self-adhering sports bandages over an undershirt work fine so long as you don’t pull them too tight (expand your ribcage AS MUCH AS YOU CAN while doing so, so you can breathe later). There’s also a couple tricks using panyhose and biking shorts that are cheap alternatives.
NEVER BIND WITH:
ACE BANDAGES
DUCT TAPE
MASKING TAPE
AND NEVER EVER EVER APPLY ANY NON-MEDICAL TAPE DIRECTLY TO THE SKIN
If ANYONE ever has ANY questions on binding (products, how-to, safety, ect) PLEASE do not hesitate to ask me. I will ALWAYS be here to listen and help.
(As for the gif… I’d tap that.)

But really, listen to the intelligent fellows above me.
I tried binding with duct tape once (I actually thought it was a good idea because I was broke as fuck), and holy jesus, it cracked my ribs when I reapplied them. I had to go to the emergency room because I couldn’t breathe, and I lost my inhaler. It also ripped some of my skin off (Of course, it’s healed by now).

i used to bind with duct tape and this one time i was sunburned when i did it AND HO-LY NIPPLES IT LIKERIPPED OFF ALL MY PREMATURE PEELING SKIN fuck never again duct tape is not fun

The Ten Binding Commandments 

  1. Never wear a binder so tight that you have a hard time breathing in it.
  2. Never wear a binder or binding device that doesn’t have a form of elastic within the fibers. Your binder must allow you to breathe in and out without any trouble.
  3. Never wear a binder for more than 12 hours in a single day. Optimum wearing time is between 8 to 10 hours, and less is always better. Bind as little as you can stand to.
  4. Never wear a binder when you sleep. Your breathing slows when you sleep and your muscles relax. The binder could become too tight and cause apnea symptoms (you could stop breathing in your sleep) and could cause fluid to build up, resulting in a form of pneumonia.
  5. If you hear a rattling or wheezing in your lungs when you breathe in or out, take off your binder NOW and cough hard a few times to loosen up fluid. This means you have been wearing your binder too long or too tight.
  6. If you continue to hear rattling of fluid in your lungs for more than 24 hours, see your doctor. Do not ignore this; you could be heading toward pneumonia.
  7. Always cough hard a few times when you take off your binder for the day. This will loosen any fluid that has built up in your lungs or the pleura of your lungs. Be sure to follow with a few deep breathing exercises to open the lungs.
  8. If your muscles under your binder twitch or spasm, take off your binder and give them a rest. Muscle spasms are likely due to a diet poor in magnesium. Many people using testosterone have reported muscle spasm problems, which are helped with a good magnesium supplement. Always consult your doctor before starting any supplement!
  9. In the long term (over months and years), binding can make the breast tissue less dense, which causes the breasts to sag/droop. This may or may not bother you, but it’s something to be aware of. It is permanent. The less dense the breast tissue is, though, the less it will resist and try to stick out when you bind.
  10. Buy a binder that compresses the breasts just enough to hide them, but does not compress your rib cage. 

Saw someone asking about sleeping while binding, so looked around for this, and figured I’d post it here also.
