Binder Request Form

Our free binder program

is intended for Maine youth that:

  • identify as trans, gender-expansive, non-binary, or any other non-cis identity
  • are 22 years old or younger (13 and under requires a parent or guardian to request one on their behalf)
  • cannot afford to purchase one or safely obtain one on their own
  • are legal Maine residents, even if temporarily living out of the state

We rely solely on donations for these binders and must limit binder requests to

ONE BINDER, PER PERSON, PER YEAR

and only for those that are truly in need.

We want as many youth in Maine to have access to the binder donation program as possible.

It is important for you to:

  1. please carefully read and follow the directions on how to measure for a binder, using the pictures for guidance
  2. watch the tutorial video on measuring if you need extra help
  3. email us if you are having difficulty measuring or need extra help after reading the instructions and watching the videos

Measuring for your 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 you prefer. We cannot guarantee that you will get a binder in a color that you prefer.
*
If you do not have a preference, click both. You may get a different binder than what you have chosen, depending on availability.
