Can I exercise in a chest binder?Updated 8 months ago

Exercising in your binder can pose additional risks. We strongly recommend checking in with your doctor before binding during exercise or engaging in activities that may put your safety or health at risk

  • If you are apprehensive, or if you have extenuating health conditions, we strongly recommend checking in with your doctor before binding during exercise.
  • Know your limits and take it easy. Go slowly with exercise intensity and take baby steps if you’re worried; everybody is different. It is important to take the binder off/cease the activity if you notice any sort of pain or discomfort
  • Wear a size up from your regular fit as it is important not to bind too tightly while exercising. Be sure to stretch and breathe, and follow healthy binding etiquette.
