Help - Using a binder isn't enough to pass
« on: July 03, 2021, 03:04:06 pm »
Hi my name is Justin. I am ftm and for the most part can pass and go stealth fairly well even though I haven't been on hrt. However my biggest issue is that I am curvy and have a large chest. Even with a gc2b binder my chest is still obvious to other people and I don't pass. I have tried underworks binders as well. Even if it isn't safe I need a way to bind my chest flatter. I know most tips and tricks for layering colors etc... But i need help with getting my chest flatter and looking less curvy.

Hi Justin.  Gc2b binders are great, but the seem to be made more  for men with smaller chests.  You might want to try an Underworks binder.  I had a D, almost a DD chest pre-top surgery.  I had two tri-top binders, and each one would flatten my chest pretty nicely.

Thanks but I have tried underworld a couple different times to. I am looking for something that is more flattening than a binder.

Honestly, other than a binder, I can't think of anything else other than surgery that would safely flatten a large chest.

Good luck with your search.

There are some guys with very feminine chests.  It is one of the side of effects of a number of medications.
My chest is 32A, enough to fill a VS bra or Junior's tops.  No HRT.  AMAB.

Your walk or mannerisms may be just as big a factor in passing as your chest.

Folks look at you and quickly decide gender based on an overall impression of what they see.
Rarely do they run through a checklist of items.

Unlike belly fat, breast fat may be changed rather easily with changes in weight.  You may want to consider a weight reduction as some of that will come off your chest.  It isn't talked about much because most GGs don't have the same goals that you do.

I'm not sure what GG is but thank you for the advice. I already do boxing and it would be fairly easy for me to ramp up the amount of fitness training I do. Hopefully i will get more post with some more advice.

GG is genetic girl.

You could also change your fitness routine to avoid muscle building.  Cardio and aerobics.

Instead of digging a hole quickly with a standard shovel, I'll work slowly with a smaller one.
Much less stress on my body so I don't have back issues in the future.

In addition to ramping up your fitness routine, you might try a little optical illusion. Some guys can deemphasize hips and chest by padding a little around the waist and aiming for more of a straight-up-and-down look. You are likely to look very barrel-chested, though.

Are you planning on top surgery? If so, how long will you have to wait?

Passing is a lot more than breasts or lack thereof. If all the other elements read as male, nobody cares for breasts.
