    HI, i am 12 and I feel really uncomfortable in my body and having a binder would really help. thing is my parents don't believe that binders a safe and that they will hurt me . How do i prove to them that they are not dangerous and how do i then ask for one ? Thank you in advance

    Hello Alix,

    I also experience gender dysphoria and wear a binder. My parents also told me I could not get a binder as it could be 'dangerous'. I got my binder by going to my friends for help. They let me order a binder from gc2b on their card and gave them the money back. To make sure my parents didn't know I had ordered it I got it deliver to my friends house and wash it in my sink.

    If you have any questions about binders, how to look after it or anything gender related please feel free to reach out to me.

    I'm going through the exact thing. I just find it annoying that the good binders are like £26.
