I swear to god if you can't be mature about this, I will report you.
I crossplay. I only crossplay. And of course, naturally, I face the same problem every time: I'm not a man. I've depended on binding for a while, and boy are the results sweet. For the price of comfort (considering I get terrible stomach aches), I can acheive a nearly flat chest. Unfortunately, all the cosplays I've done up till now have had loose shirts. Now I'm cosplaying as a character with a skin-tight top (in which I'll be using a leatard for).
So, binding would just end up looking bulky and lumpy. I can't wear a vest because they're expensive and still bulky. Are there any alternatives to getting a flat chest?
