Common symptoms of Chest Binding inappropriately
⚠️ ATTENTION ⚠️
Chest binders are designed with a tight fit
Selecting the right sizes is critical to your safety and comfort levels. If you can’t take deep breaths while wearing the binder, then it is likely to be too small for your chest and should be removed immediately.
It's still essential to give your body a break from binding if this is your first time. Our advice is NOT to use more than 6 hours daily for the first two weeks and it is very common if you feeling a little uncomfort as your body takes some time to get used to it.
A perfect fit should not be too tight or too loose. After a month of use, you would definitely felt the confidence you ever needed and of course with healthy normal respiration.
