This is a Journey to Find a Coherent Balance.
At Fytist, we may not advocate "flattening" being a chest binder's sole and core purpose. Instead, we are firm believers in designing a comfortable and safe binder, and we are aware that binding, for some, is like a journey to find a balance between flatness and health, body and mind.
Better Comfort & Looking Flat
The breasts are primarily fat and mammary glands, which can't physically be reduced through restraint or compression. But only via top surgery or caused by traumatic injury.
Fytist, as a responsible brand for chest binders, instead of just pursuing a flattened result, we are devoted in the design concept of unique binding structure, and carefully selected fabrics, to ensure a comfortable and less painful binding experience.
Proper Breathing is a Must
When you are breathing, the chest cavity is expanding and contracting with the lung lobes. High pressure and stiffness on the chest limit the cavity expansion, reducing lung capacity for breathing, making people feel chest tightness, discomfort, and pain when breathing. That’s why we need a breathable chest binder.
Fytist avoid using 100% stiff and pressuring fabrics on the front fabric panel. Instead, our chest binders' front panel adapts partially elastic fabrics to allow more space for our lungs to breathe properly without excessive constraints.
Healthier Back and Posture
Standard commercial chest binders have too much pressure on the front chest, disrupting the balance between muscles and bones. Such disruption would cause back, abdomen, and shoulder pain after a longer period of time. These body pains should not be ignored or “endured”, because over time, the body will try to counter the pain, and as a result causing posture problem, muscle atrophy, even bone deformation or fracture.
The Fytist chest binders are designed with balanced pressure on the wearers' upper torso, avoiding balanced pressure leading to hurting one's body. Reducing back pain and series of problems caused by bad posture when chest binding.
