How to measure for a binder

Add a subheading.jpg

*

Take this measurement just above where your breast tissue begins, at the top of your chest. The measuring tape should lay just below your armpits and at the beginning of your breast tissue.
*

Measure the largest part of the chest: While standing, take this measurement around the torso and chest where the most breast tissue is (usually around the nipples, but this will vary person to person).
*

Underbust measurement: Take this measurement directly under your chest tissue, around your rib cage, where you would measure your band size for a bra.
*

This is the measurement from shoulder tip to shoulder tip, across the back, just behind the neck.
*
Please check off which colors are preferred. We cannot guarantee preferred colors will be shipped, based on current inventory.
*
