FTM TAPE E BINDER

TAPE E BINDER

The binder is a containing tank top which, by compressing the chest, allows you to create the shape of a typically male chest.

It is a fundamental ally in alleviating the physical dysphoria experienced by trans* FTM, transmasc and non-binary people.

The tape (kinesiological tape) is a valid summer alternative to the binder.

It is usually used by those who play sports to relieve tears, inflammation and injuries.

The tape in our shop measures 10 cm wide x 5 meters long.

Types of binders

There are different types and models of binder: the most common are the "tank" model and the more common "top".

Chest compression is guaranteed by the high quality material that makes up the binder.

Use should be limited to 8-12 hours per day.

Tape vs Binder

The tape (kinesiology tape) can be used as an alternative to the binder during the warmer seasons, is less limiting and is suitable for intensive training. However, the cost is higher, as the tape must be purchased cyclically.

The binder, if treated with care and attention, can last for years.

Measures and security

Before proceeding with the purchase of a binder, it is important to take the right shoulder and chest measurements, so as to guarantee optimal and safe compression.

It is strictly not recommended to buy sizes smaller than your own, as well as the purchase of "cheap" binders with side opening. Your health is more important than anything else, and incorrect compression can create permanent damage.

TAPE: USER'S GUIDE

PREPARATION OF THE TAPE

Before putting on the tape, make sure your skin is not irritated and that it is completely dry and free from body creams/oils.

Depending on your size, you will need to use more or less tape.

Cut the strips.

 Rounding the edges will promote long-term adhesion.

Cover the nipples with gauze or a plaster, so as to protect them from the glue of the tape.

TAPE APPLICATION

Remove the protective film from the back of the tape.

Apply the tape starting from the innermost part of the chest.

Press the tape against the skin, following the shape of the part to be covered. 

If needed, multiple strips of tape can be used.

TAPE REMOVAL

Always remove the tape with the help of body oil.

Using it will allow the glue to soften and be removed without causing damage to the skin.

AVVERTENZE

Il tape può essere indossato per 4-5 giorni al massimo.

E' resistente all'acqua, quindi può essere usato durante la doccia, al mare ed in piscina.

Rimuovere immediatamente se si nota la presenza di vesciche o irritazioni.
