Binder Exchange Form


Who is the replacement binder for?

If you are requesting to exchange a binder for someone else, they must be 14 years old or older.

The person filling out this form must be the MAIL recipient.

Do not request a binder to an address that is not your own.

Instead, have the person who is receiving it for you fill out this information.

We review these requests carefully, check addresses, and confirm with the mail recipient.

We double-check addresses and contact the mail recipient (using the contact information we verify as correct) to confirm they expect the package.

If we have reason to believe the mail recipient didn't request the binder, or that you do not qualify for a binder, we will not send it.

Your Age

If you are requesting to exchange YOUR binder, you must be between the ages of 14 and 22.

If you are requesting to exchange SOMEONE ELSE'S binder, you must be at least 18, and the person you are requesting the binder for must be between the ages of 14 and 22.

There are no exceptions.



If you don't have a Maine address, stop here!

We will not send binders to out-of-state addresses.

If you do not live in Maine, Trans Essentials also has a youth binder program:

New Binder Measurements

Please follow the instructions exactly so we can ensure we exchange the binder for one in the correct size.

The largest part of the chest: Take this measurement while standing, around the torso and chest where the most breast tissue is (usually around the nipples, but this will vary from person to person). This will most likely be your largest measurement.

Place the measuring tape at the point of one of your shoulders. Then stretch the tape to the point of your other shoulder. Don’t wrap the measuring tape all the way around your shoulders for this measurement–just point-to-point. It should go just behind your neck in a straight line, from shoulder tip to shoulder tip. Write this number down as your fourth and final measurement.
Style Preferences

We will send you a binder in your size and it may come in any color, pattern, and length.

However, we will do our best to pick a binder that is closest to your preference.

Short binders just cover your chest. Long binders cover your whole torso, but the actual compression material is only in the chest.

If the binder has any rips, holes, stains, fraying, or alterations, please make sure they are visible.
