Should Eden carry binders? (You know, THAT kind.)

Snozzberries Snozzberries
I still want one and, because of this thread, I've researched more into it. There are some amazing things out there.

I always thought it was just an ace bandage.

Yes that would be a good idea.

I was actually looking for a binder for my Halloween costume (A 10 year old girl from an anime I watch) and couldn't find one that I'd be able to get in time. I was sad and wore my dinosaur costume instead. (I'm 4'10, so I like to wear children's costumes for Halloween, just to throw people off. ^_^)

A lot of people use those but they're really not safe for people's health unfortunately.

It's definitely not an ACE Bandage. Using ACE Bandages is a horrible, horrible way to bind. Every time you breathe the bandage gets tighter. That can lead to restricted breathing, cracked or broken ribs, punctured lungs which leads to coughing up blood, etc.

This is an excellent idea. EF, what are you waiting for?

it's not really a sex toy but neither is a bra or lingerie, which EF carries. I think they would go for the idea, they carry packers, harnesses, and underwear for cisgendered people, I don't see why they'd refuse binders if there was a large enough demand for them!

Oh,indeed. (I'd also like to see a greater variety of soft packs [I got mine from a rival retailer...]). Once word gets around I think they could do good business with it.

I'm not a trans guy, but I am trigender, and some days I feel much more masculine and would bind myself.

Ace bandages can actually be extremely dangerous, no one should ever use them to bind their chest. There's many specially made (safe) chest binders through several companies, compression shirts for men with gyneocamastia work as well.

That would be great, considering I'm trying to save up for one as it is, and having money in combination with the point system here would make it very worth it. I'm not sure if they would, since it's not explicitly a sex toy, but then again neither are packers. It is a great idea though!

I really wish they would! I'm surprised they haven't yet, there would be a lot of money in it for them even though it's not a "sex toy". But they could file it under Kinky play and sell them <3

They could always sell "sexy" binders. Never seen any but they should exist. Like... ones specifically for the bedroom that are also practical and really do bind the chest.

Yesss! Even if they're not considered "sex toys" I like to wear mine during sex because it makes me feel better.
And you made a really great point about reviews. Underworks has some of their compressors (more for chubby cis guys or cis guys with gynecomastia) on Amazon, where they have reviews, but no binders! Being able to read binder reviews before buying would be AWESOME!

Hmmm. Maybe.

I think it is a great idea. EF already sells packing harnesses, I think binders make sense.

I would love if EF carried binders. I'm FtM and have never owned a real binder because I'm also incredibly flat chested and they're usually just beyond my price range. But I would love to get a proper one so I can stop using sports bras and baggy t-shirts.

Oh god I would kill for one like this. I've never seen one. Someone should make a prototype.

That would be great! I'd definitely like to be able to buy a binder the same place I buy packers.

I think this is a great idea. The reviews on this site for the packers alone are the best ive ever seen nad could really do with the same critique for various binders

So besides getting a lot of votes on this poll, is there anything else we can do to draw EF staff's attention towards the fact that this would be a great addition to their inventory?

I have passed this poll along and if you will find product examples of things you're interested in you can post their links in the current Eden Should Carry thread: link That will give the product specialists a better idea of what you're looking for!

Really like this idea - I definitely understand that they're not considered a sexual object, per se, but I think having them alongside the packers would be a great idea. It's so hard to find a good quality binder on a legit-looking website, for a good price.
