That’s great, but be careful, you could be causing damage by using a makeshift one

Ok, but be careful with following 'beauty tips' from TikTok, seen that go tits up several times. I'd show you an example of what I mean but images don't work on this forum.

Is it worth it for you?
There are very real side effects that are experienced by a very large portion of people who bind.
Please do it safely. Tiktoc promotes dangerous trends, so you really do need to get advice of a medical professional.

I don't know what that means, could someone explain?
I genuinely clicked on this thread thinking it was a question about folders/binders.

Its all confidential - they will only tell your parents if you express that you want them to pass on information or ofc if you are in any actual actual danger.

If you decide to go to a therapist, they will explain all of that before you actually start and explain in what scenarios they would have to break confidentially

Btw a therapist is obviously a very different thing to a medical professional- I was just explaining that it is confidential so dont worry about that.

Make sure you're being careful - get an actual binder (makeshift ones can be dangerous) and look for real medical advice - tiktok isn't real medical advice. It's good that you feel better though

Binders are used to flatten chests, some people use it because they are part of the transgender community and some people use it because they want to look a certain way and be flat. (There’s lots of different reasons)

But some binders are dangerous and can cause boobs to change shape or cause pain there’s an example of one

Yes it is free in the UK on the NHS. You can get a referral for therapy from your GP.

A binder should be tight and your body needs to get used to it but it should not be making it super difficult to breathe. Opt for a bigger size or dont wear it for so long.
