First Time

Someone wrote…

Oh man oh man oh man.

As a genderqueer, this is definitely a major highlight of my life: the first time I’ve ever worn a binder. Got it in the mail yesterday (and boy, was it a struggle to put on but hey, so were the one-pieces I worked with back in high school on the swim team until I got used to them). Got it on though, and tried a few button-up shirts I used to wear that have fit me *perfectly* in the past except for my DD chest blocking it: fit like a glove.

Now I don’t have to drown in my clothing anymore, and I don’t have to look at these cartoonishly large mounds that have made me feel awkward in my own skin. This will be a much-needed step forward.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    My first binder was way too small for me, and there was no way that thing was getting on me! The second binder fit, but it was so hard to put on! I thought I was gonna dislocate something! But once I got it on, I felt so much more confident! Now people have nothing to see when they stare at my chest. I love it.
