Question: Binding for bigger people?

Lee asks…

How well does binding work for heavy people?

I’m 5’3 208 lbs and unfortunately carry all of my weight in my tummy and breasts.

I’m just starting to explore my gender fully and I really want to start binding but binders are pretty expensive and I want to make sure I splurge and get a really good one instead of buying and sampling a bunch that don’t really work for bigger people.

Any suggestions?

    Hopefully other readers can offer actual recommendations for you, buuut I found this (recent!) entry on Tumblr that breaks down the author’s tips for safely binding a large chest:

    Here are a couple of places that offer free or inexpensive used binders:

    Hey there! I’m kinda tiny, so I can’t give you any personal tips BUT. I got my binder from GC2B and they have fairly cheap binders (as far as binders go), at $33 for half-binders and $35 for tank binders. Their largest size is for 47-50″ chest. They’re also trans-owned, so maybe you can shoot them an email to ask questions? They were really friendly and helpful with me.
