Ugh... I know the feeling and I F*ckin' hate it. =___=

I'm at the point now where my chest is small enough that I can hide it in a sports... THING. ;>__> But I really want to start working out again so my arms aren't so frickin' twig-like. But I'm paranoid that the my chest muscles will get bigger an force my breasts to protrude more...

God Dammit. If I wanna work out I should just be able to without these damn frustrations... =____=#

Just ridiculous....

Actually, I'm pretty sure that working out makes breasts smaller. A quick google of female body builders / sporty girls ought to prove that.

Great capture. It's really hard to portray emotion without facial features, but you've done it very nicely. And, you've got a nice back :)

Is this personal? I can relate, to an extent. Sucks, huh?

It seems very spacey, like everything was stuck in time for a moment. I think that contributes to the lonely feeling.

I'd also like to say thanks for making me a bit more aware. I'm MTF, but haven't really had the chance to do anything (underage + I live with my parents). This and the other picture, along with the comments, made me realize you guys have it really hard, too. Next time I start self-pitying, I'll think how hard you and other FTM's have it. Nice pictures, by the way.

This picture really captivates me somehow. I can't help but to think you're "lucky" to be able to bind up your breast like that..
You have a very beautiful figure by the way.
I like the picture itself as well. It's so simple, not a pro photo or anything, but you still manage to capture a lot of emotion.

I don't bind daily, just for photoshoots--to clarify. On a day-to-day basis I just wear a small sports bra, layer and slouch like a bandit. It's not perfect, but it works for me and binding is detrimental to one's health.

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment while :+fav:-ing. I really appreciate your words :heart:

I saw that explanation in another comment ^^ But I can have mine in for something around 5 minutes before I faint, so yeah.
I wear sports bra's daily as well and so forth. Helps a lot.

You're very welcome.

Looking at your DevID--if that is you, you've quite a nice figure yourself, by the way.

and oh man, I repeat myself on these so much you've no idea XD I should probably put that in the description, but I don't like to "describe" shots like these.

It is indeed me, and thank you :3 But I'm afraid it's the shirt and light that does the most there, doesn't look anything like it in real life xD

I understand, conceptunals shouldn't be described, I think it's up to the viewer what it should be, not even the photograpgher can decide what the eye sees. But yeah, it's really good.

I envy you for having such a waif-like figure. Big breast run in my family, and even straping my down for a short amount of time kills me, but it's the only way I feel comfertable.

Great photos, caputres so much so simply.

Eh, it's all right. I'm rather dangerously underweight (5'5", I fluctuate between 92-98lbs) but I've always been this way. Get sick a lot, get cold so easily.

Careful with the binding. I only do it for photographs, on a day-to-day basis I layer heavily and slouch like a bandit. Luckily I have relatively small breasts, just between B and C last I checked. I wear a small sports bra, black beater and usually two shirts (like a long sleeve shirt with a t-shirt over) aside from summer, when it's a lot harder to pass. I need to find a healthy alternative soon because I'm starting testosterone in March, hopefully.

In any case, binding can cause severe damage to your organs, just like original corsets did in their hayday. Can complicate birth (though I assume you're not worried about that) and causes scar tissue in the breasts, which can complicate breast removal and chest reconstruction surgeries. I'd definitely recommend talking to your doctor about it.

I've heard good things about the products from underworks.com. They sell binding vests which are more professional, though I've yet to look into it seriously myself.

Thanks so much for the advice, I'll be talking to a doctor as soon as a move out of home and I'll look up the website when I get internet on my laptop (My mother has a problem with the whole thing so I'm really resricted in what I don, hasn't been fun.)

Thanks again for your help :heart:

I don't generally use the regular strapper (that goes around the hips) -- what I do is put it in a knee-high and safety-pin it to the inside of my underwear. It keeps the packy lint-free and allows it to dangle more realistically. :)

Well, I wear the strap and pack inside of my underwear anyway. -shrugs- works for me. Before I had the strap my life was hell trying to get that thing to stay in place.

theres these binding vests you can get, they're much more comfortable than the ace bandages. my Boyfriend has a nice black one. we finally splurged on it when the long-term use of the ace bandage was constricting his lungs and causing him to slowly suffocate.
i love this so much! i wouldn't have known it was a timed self portrait if you hadn't said anything. very pretty

prettychaos Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2007
I know of them, however after extended use they break down breast tissue, which causes scar tissue in the breasts. That can complicate top surgery. I don't wear the ace bandages for anything other than photos--I'm lucky enough to have small enough breasts to hide them easily under baggy clothes.

It does feel so strange to undress your crossdressings. I never take off my soft pack (fake flaccid penis) unless I shower, and it comes in with me to get cleaned.

Do you two have instant messengers?

Yes, I do. I have this lovely porn shop down by me with a koi fish pond and lounge and it's very open-minded, that's where I got my soft pack (a little flaccid made of cyberskin that transfers heat), my strap to wear it comfortably on my hips and everything else I've needed. They have mangos, but I haven't had the money to drop on it quite yet. Plus, I pee standing already, so. I just prefer to be in a stall either way.

I only use ace bandages in photos, they're very risky because they can cause substantial damage to your ribs and organs. I'd suggest looking for a compression vest, which is more comfortable and safe. You can find something like that from underworks.com.

And thank you :heart:

-chuckles- Naturally this skinny, unfortunately, and I get tortured for it by my doctors. My mum weighed 98lbs when she got married at 24.
I hope to work up some muscle weight now that I actually have the free time to seriously work out instead of just being active. ~__~;


I like your DevID, by the way.
