in the experience i've had, front-closure binders just don't bind as well as pull-over binders. all binders are sort of stiff when you first get them but i would still recommend pull-overs because they get you FLAT AS HELL. i recently got a tri-top binder from underworks that was so fucking stiff when i first got it & putting it on was a real chore, but it stretched out pretty quick & i have no problems now. and honestly the only closure binders i've had were velcro so maybe that's the problem

My worry is that I won’t be able to get it off without possibly hurting myself. But hopefully getting the right size will help. I have a large ribcage, so sizing can be hard.

Thanks, Chot! It really helps to have input from others.

Do they make binders with front closures?

I tried putting on a compression top last night, and when trying to get it off(it was too small), I had almost choked doing the criss cross arm thing to grab the base. It was like i was crushing windpipe to the point of breaking. @n@

I have found a top that does fit with a front closure, but it doesn’t flatten my chest like I wanted. :( but close enough because i needed a new top like it.

So, yeah. Does anyone have experience with a chest binder with a front closure? Possibly not velcro?

Just a reminder:the natural diet of these birds is BONES. Not just bone marrow; actual bone shards. They pick up huge freaking bones from carcasses and drop them onto rocks until they get spiky pieces and then they swallow them. Their stomach acid dissolves bone.

look me in the eye and tell me that’s not a fucking dragon

And they aren’t naturally red like that. That’s self-applied makeup. They find the reddest earth they can to work into their feathers as a status symbol.

And they don’t scavenge other parts of carcases, just the bones. 85-90% of their diet is exclusively bone. Hence why it’s only a myth that these birds would just pick up whole lambs and carry them off. It’s not true, but in German they’re still called Lämmergeier as a result.

So metal
