- This binder is absolutely amazing. I never thought I would ever say those words. I actually enjoy wearing this! Seriously, skip buying a binder because it’s cheaper in the short-run. That’s what I did and I don’t regret trying it, but I know now that priority, for me, is COMFORT with my compression. And to you other guys: Don’t lower your standards on a binder! There is one for you and this is it. The Air 7 is a little pricey. 90 bucks. I felt a little guilty spending the money on this… until I received it. Well done! It came folded in it’s own little Double Company, screen-printed, nice zip-close bag. Seriously, when I ordered this, I thought I was going to have to mail it back because it was going to be some cheap-ass material that’s scratchy. I was so wrong. It fits like a tank top, which I previously used to wear under all my shirts. It’s SO soft, the back is like a mesh, but not like a rough, cheap mesh or a flimsy, basketball shorts mesh. It’s tough, but it’s soft. The material is stretchy, but takes a bit of strength to stretch by hand, similar to the Underworks material, in that way ONLY. When I put a shirt on over this, I absolutely love the way it feels on my skin. Let me repeat that: It feels GREAT with a shirt over it! So cool/icey feeling on the skin. It’s wonderful. Oh, and it doesn’t have any kind of ODOR to the fabric. I recently tried to buy an UnderArmour shirt and really liked the way it felt, but there is virtually no compression in that material. This Air 7 is a similar material, super soft, yet thicker. This does NOT roll up, contort, anything. It’s so refreshing to know that there are people in the world that understand what makes a great binder. Taiwan, apparently, is in on the secret. I absolutely know I will buy another one of these.
- Also, WARNING!
Get your REAL size! Seriously, if you know your Cup/Band size, use that. If not, measure yourself. Do not attempt to get this thinking you will have to buy it smaller because you want to be really flat. It is a binder. A REAL ONE. So, feel completely secure in buying your size. That’s all.
- I hope you all felt my excitement in reading this. Also, the only reason I gave this a 4.5/5 in discreetness is because, for me, the fabric could always be thinner, but also I’m just leaving a little room for improvement in case some super miracle fabric comes along. Other than that, this thing is PERFECT. I have nothing negative to say about it.
