Okay looks like i’m seriously going to have to MAKE IT WELL KNOWN ABOUT THESE BINDERS.
See these tags? They are the emblem of a binder company that sells very, VERY cheap binders. Why do I have a problem with this company? The material they choose to use to make binders out of.
That material is not stretchy or elasticated whatsoever. They are basically the same as an ACE bandage and caused me problems quite similar to said bandages. What problems you say?
- Skin tears, rubbing, bruising, swelling etc.
- Irritates skin and causes rashes and general soreness, pinches skin, etc.
- Trouble breathing, constricting, unforgiving material.
- Only for smaller cup sizes (small C MAX)
The longest i’ve been able to wear one is for two hours and I couldn’t breathe properly, I had rib bruising afterwards and my breasts were so sore that without support afterwards the ache was killer. I am only a large A cup.
This material is NOT binding material and not good for your skin elasticity either. It hurts, it pulls, it scratches, it’s painful. Please please PLEASE do not get these binders, they can do by the names of:
SHO/XX/FE/JJ/JJ’s/E.V.A/OZ/Whorl Weave/GL/SOHOEVA (bolded are the most common names)
Please remember a good quality binder is made of stretchy material, you are able to breathe properly and while they cost more, your body will thank you for it in the future! Good quality binders come from:
- Underworks (which I will forever recommend the 967)
- LesLoveBoat (good for zipper binders!)
- T-Kingdom (also good for zipper binders and different types)
- Mansculpture (hook and eyelet binders too)
- MangoProducts (another one I recommend!)
I’m not attacking you if you can’t afford a better quality binder but please do not use these for long term use, save your money and get a good quality binder. Dysphoria will only worsen if your body isn’t taken care of :C
Let’s play a game. Type the following words into your tags box, then post the first automatic tag that comes up:
Here’s my ferret in a sweatshirt.

The Astro Alphabet
By Ethan Siege
A is for Aurora, the Earth’s polar lights,
as the Sun’s hot electrons help color our nights.
B is for Black Hole, a star’s collapsed heart,
if you cross its horizon, you’ll never depart.
C is for Comet, with tails, ice, and dust,
a trip near the Sun makes skywatching a must!
D is for Dark Matter, the great cosmic glue
that holds clusters together, but not me and you!
E is for Eclipse, where the Moon, Earth and Sun
cast light-blocking shadows that can’t be outrun.
F is for Fusion, that powers the stars,
as nuclei join, their released light is ours!
G is for Galaxies, in groups and alone,
house billions of planets with lifeforms unknown.
H is for Hubble, for whom Earth’s no place;
a telescope like this belongs up in space.
I is for Ions, making nebulae glow;
as they find electrons, we capture the show.
J is for Jets, from a galaxy’s core,
if you feed them right, they’ll be active once more!
K is for Kepler, whose great laws of motion
keep planets on course in the great cosmic ocean.
L is for Libration, which makes our Moon rock,
it’s a trick of the orbit; it’s tidally locked!
M is for Meteors, which come in a shower,
if skies are just right, you’ll see hundreds an hour!
N is for Nebula, what forms when stars die,
this recycled fuel makes cosmic apple pie.
O is for Opaque, why the Milky Way’s dark,
these cosmic dust lanes make starlight appear stark!
P is for Pulsar, a spinning neutron star,
as the orbits tick by, we know just when we are.
Q is for Quasar, a great radio source,
accelerating matter with little remorse.
R is for Rings, all gas giants possess them,
even one found in another sun’s system!
S is for Spacetime, which curves due to matter,
this Universe-fabric can bend but won’t shatter!
T is for Tides, caused by gravity’s tune,
our oceans bulge out from the Sun and the Moon.
U is the Universe, our goal’s understanding,
with billions of galaxies, as spacetime’s expanding!
V is for Virgo, our nearest great cluster,
with thousands of galaxies, it’s a gut-buster!
W is for Wavelength, the energies of light,
that tell us what atoms are in stars just from sight!
X is for X-rays, high-energy light,
where bursts of new stars show an ionized might.
Y is the Year, where we orbit our Sun,
each planet’s is different; the Earth’s is just one.
Z is for Zenith, so gaze up at the sky!
The Universe is here; let’s learn what, how and why.
i want to take a moment to talk about the movie ‘khumba' because i just noticed its been added to netflix
EVERYONE NEEDS TO CHECK OUT THIS MOVIE!! i watched it a few months ago and i loved it, here’s the synopsis
Rejected by his superstitious herd, a half-striped zebra embarks on a daring quest to earn his stripes but finds the courage and self-acceptance to save all the animals of the Great Karoo
some cool stuff about this movie
- the studio behind this movie is triggerfish animation, based in cape town south africa. it’s a pretty new studio, they did that movie ‘adventures in zambezia’ in 2012 (the one with the birds) i think it’s awesome to see a movie made in the same place it’s set
- it’s BEAUTIFULLY animated and the art direction is pretty good too especially considering it wasn’t made by any big name studios. the character designs are more interesting and varied than a lot of cgi animated stuff disney has put out i’ll say that
- the movie was inspired by and dedicated to the quagga project, which was an effort to save the quagga (which looks kinda like a half striped zebra) from extinction
the cast is really impressive for a 20 million budget movie too btw
CHECK KHUMBA OUT ON NETFLIX!!! REALLY WORTH A WATCH
The Daughter of Dawn, an 80-minute feature film, was shot in July of 1920 in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge near Lawton, southwest Oklahoma. It was unique in the annals of silent film (or talkies, for that matter) for having a cast of 300 Comanches and Kiowas who brought their own clothes, horses, tipis, everyday props and who told their story without a single reference to the United States Cavalry. It was a love story, a four-person star-crossed romance that ends with the two main characters together happily ever after. There are two buffalo hunt sequences with actual herds of buffalo being chased down by hunters on bareback just as they had done on the Plains 50 years earlier.
The male lead was played by White Parker; another featured female role was played by Wanada Parker. They were the son and daughter of the powerful Comanche chief Quanah Parker, the last of the free Plains Quahadi Comanche warriors. He never lost a battle to United States forces, but, his people sick and starving, he surrendered at Fort Sill in 1875. Quanah was the son of Comanche chief Peta Nocona and Cynthia Ann Parker, the daughter of Euro-American settlers who had grown up in the tribe after she was kidnapped as a child by the Comanches who killed her parents. She was the model for Stands With a Fist in Dances with Wolves.
You can watch the first ten minutes of the film here. It is over 90 years old, and was produced by, directed by, and stars only Native American people.
Always reblog when this crosses my dash!
A peryton is a mythological creature with the body of a stag and the wings and hindquarters of a bird. It is said to cast the shadow of a man until it kills one during its lifetime, from then on it casts its true shadow.
This may or may not be my new favorite mythological creature.
