Start with the basics. What you wear under your clothes is just as important as what the world sees.

A binder can help a lot with dysphoria. Binders from gc2b get really good reviews, but they are pricey. There are less expensive binders on Amazon. Most of the binders on Amazon are in Asian sizes, so they run a lot smaller. So if you purchase a binder from Amazon, be sure to check the sizing chart before you order. If a binder is not comfortable, a compression shirt or sports bra might help. Doctors advise against wearing a binder for more than eight hours per day. And make sure that the binder is not too tight to carry on a conversation.


Transitional apparel offered by gc2b is excellent. They offer binders in three styles: racerback, half binder, and a longer tank binder. Half binders and racerbacks are more comfortable during long, hot summers. Binders also come in a range of skin tones if you want your binder to blend in or you can make a statement with a variety of bright colors. Binders are available in sizes extra small to 5XL. The gc2b sizing chart will help you choose the right size. If your binder doesn’t fit, you can return it within two weeks. And don’t worry- the packaging from gc2b is generic, so no one will know what you have ordered.
