Strapping X_X
I've been crossplaying female-to-male for a few years now, but I've gotten fed up of my big chest spoiling everything I wear. I've read through the F-t-M tutorial which was VERY useful (thankyou~!) and I've decided that I want to have a go at strapping using bandages and the open-shirt binding method.

Now here's where I start to get cosnfused. @_@
I know that what I'm looking for (specifically) is NON stretchy, white strapping, that will stick to both my clothes AND my skin (without ripping it all off afterwards!) and I'ce found a fair amount on eBay, but I'm never sure whether what I'm looking at is going to be the right sort of thing, as even though all the photos LOOK similar, each shop gives the product a differing description.
The type Ive come across the most is ZINC OXIDE tape. Does anyone have any experience with this stuff? Here's some examples;


I posted a comment on the tutorial page but noone's replied and I'm starting to get little desperate for an answer. Can anyone help me please? ^__^

Zinc oxide tape is definitely not stretchy! (I sometime use it for marathon training). Typically only sticky on one side, but that side sticks nicely, wont move with sweat, does come off when you want it to though, you just have to rip it off, which doesn't really hurt tbh, but I would be careful which part of your boob your sticking it to though!! ;p but generally would be a good choice.

Oh and you can get it at boots!

There is always room for cake

This miiiight help?
I dont know if this will be useful to you, but this is what we used for when my friend went as L to the expo! However, shes not ... the biggest of bra sizes haha! So this worked for us, it miiight do for you! Also, this was closed shirt..

What we used was alot of this tape(ish) thing thats just Elastic Bandage. Its very VERY stretchy, as ive used it whilst having karate injuries and still having to train, and it supports really well as its tight but still stretchy, and also its double sided stickyness(to an extent, but believe me, it will definatly stay if you do it tight enough!). I would guess that when you cut it for openshirtness (yes, i made up a word!) , you could stick the edges down with clear tape so that it stays, which wouldnt show.

This probably didnt help, but i hope i helped a little!

Elastic Bandage. Its very VERY stretchy,
I tried this before a couple of year back when I was younger, and it does absolutely nothing for larger busts.

The best method I've found is the duct tape one... but ahh ;__; I'm stalking this thread because I would die and go to heaven if I could find a feasible open shirt method!!!! <3 *stalks it*
