Zine for safely bind your chest
I’m a transman and since few years I bind my chest to flatten it.
but the binders got me so much back pain that it was excruciating to even wear it few hours a day. and I couldn’t keep my binder on while practicing sport/showering/sleeping…
(for me expecially sport could be a very dysphoric and challis time!)
and esthetic wise… I could never get a “flat” look and it was difficult for me
so I discovered that some Transmasculine people used the kinesiology tape! and since one year I started using Tape and the result are amazing because I can wear it and forget i’m wearing it!
and the comfort during sport is also more important!
but I can tell you, in one year I went through some rough patch (literally)!
but I learned a lot and there are some mistakes I don’t do anymore!
so, since all my fellow transmasc always ask me for advices for putting the tape, I decided to create (draw and write) a zine to talk about this.
in this zine you will find:
- a guide to well cut, stick and keep the tape on.
-what to do before sticking the tape to well prepare physically AND mentally!!!

8 pages / A6 that you can read, re read, learn and then give to your next transmasc fellow.
