Dr. Garramone's "Mansculpture" BINDER Review - disappointed
« on: November 13, 2012, 09:26:28 pm »
So I got my mansculpture binder in the mail today and I am very disappointed that I paid $50 + shipping for this thing. It reminds me a lot of the Underworks 973 Cotton Concealer Tank, which I also have and NEVER wear. The Numero Uno Mansculpture binder does not bind very well in the chest. I feel more pressure on my stomach than my chest. I am only an A/very small B cup and with the new binder on my chest is still VERY squishy to the touch and the roundness is very apparent even under a t-shirt. I regret this purchase and feel I should have gotten a new underworks 997 double front tank, since what I wanted was chest and stomach/hip compression and have had success with that in the past with the 997, but found it to be too itchy especially on my ribs a lot of the time. What I am looking for when I put on a binder, is for my chest to be completely flat (especially since I'm so small to begin with) and for it to be only slightly squishy to the touch so that it feels like you're pushing into a male pec. With the mansculpture binder the rounded bottom of my chesticles is too obvious. I feel it makes me look like I just have very small breasts in a sports bra, not like a male chest. I will probably try to return it, unless someone else wants to buy it from me and try their luck. I got a Medium. They don't refund shipping AND you have to pay to ship it back so that sucks. I plan to buy a new 997 double front tank once I get the money together again. I can't believe a binder made by a top surgery surgeon doesn't bind better in the chest than it does in the stomach. Hopefully he fixes the problem and comes out with a new product that works better because I really like the fabric and the way way it has something around the bottom hem that stops it from rolling up, which I really liked. PM me if you would like to purchase it from me even after this review, lol. I have to return it within 3 days to get a refund. Thanks for reading! Have a good one, bros!

I think Jay (aleon) had some luck with talking to them about the problem he had with it and getting the sorted. Might be worth a try.
Well I wish I could choose the life I please, but I am not a free man. Others rule my destiny, but my will's never broken. I know someday I will be everything that I dreamed I'd be.  And when I live the life I please then I will be a freeman.

Aw dang I was gonna buy one, and now I'm reconsidering.

Personally I have a hard time binding and I would die to find a binder that ACTUALLY BINDS but doesn't destroy my back. Oh well. I wanna see more points of view on this Mansculpture binder, see if it's just a personal experience or if the product is generally bad.

You might read this thread:

I reviewed  it. I really don't care for stomach compression, but I generally like it and I think it does a good job of binding (me). I am not real big though, maybe 34 C. (I believe that the cup measure is something like under and over the chest-- like a size differential.)

I made some cuts around the sides on the bottom whcih reduces the stomach compression and that makes me happier.

They are going to do other models, so you might think about waiting for another type of model.
