For those who want a flat chest silhouette, look no further than the Double Panel Compression Shirt. Two layers of Spandex/nylon material across the chest and mid-section conform to the body and allow a full range of motion; the shirt is full-length and is easily tucked into pants. In order to determine your ideal size:

  • Take a snug measurement under the breast tissue line with a tape measure, aiming for your ribcage.
  • Take another measurement over the fullest part of your chest. You might want to wear a sports bra when you do this.
  • Take the average of these two measurements, and apply the result to the sizing recommendations provided in the "specs" tab, above.
  • Between sizes? If you're unsure, opt for the larger size to ensure breathing comfort.
  • Note: this shirt is meant to fit very snugly to achieve a flattening effect, and may be difficult to put on/take off at first; this should become slightly easier with use. If you choose to size up for comfort, know that the flattening effect may be decreased. Please contact Customer Service for additional guidance in ordering.
Please note: this product is guaranteed for 30 days for any defects, but is not eligible for satisfaction-based return.

    I got the compression shirt in a medium. I tried it on in the store and it is true to size. i usually wear a medium and sometimes a small. It was really hard to get on at first but then I realized it is best to scrunch it up over your arms and put your hands thru the arm holes and then slide it over your head and pull the bottom part down. The last step is a bit difficult ( and chafes a little in the armpits), but after some practice it was really easy. I love the fit. It gives my chest a great flat look, but allows me to move and breathe well. I even ride my bike with it. :)

    After reading the glowing reviews of this binder I was excited to get one for myself. I had an excellent experience at the Babeland store and all was going well, that is until I wore this binder for a day.

    I had tried on the binder in the store and it fit well. Unfortunately the change room/ bathroom didn't have a mirror in it, and it was only when I wore the binder under a shirt at home that I saw how little it did. I have often passed as male when wearing a hoodie or button down shirt, so I thought a binder would help me pass in a t-shirt.
    I do not have a large chest by any means (I haven't worn a cupped bra in years but can't be more than a B or C), but the binder just made my chest look like I was wearing a tight sports bra. While it was tight over my chest, it was loose at the very top, which contributed to the 'sports bra' look. I tried adjusting my chest under the binder, but nothing prevented it from eventually riding down and making it almost look like I had cleavage (terrible!).
    Once I finally worked up the courage to leave the house, I decided to go shoe shopping. When I asked the person working at the store for a shoe in my size, he asked if the size was in men's or women's (humiliating!).
    After several more instances of being called 'ma'am' I decided to just go home. During my day I also discovered another terrible feature of this binder; the creasing in the back. If I leaned forward while sitting down the binder creased on both sides of my mid back and caught my shirt in the creases when I sat up again. These creases also dug into my back and were very uncomfortable throughout the day.

    I know that a binder is not supposed to work miracles, or be the most comfortable garment, but given the rave reviews I expected something that at least worked. I was just hoping to be able to wear a t-shirt on those days when I feel particularly like my body doesn't match my brain. Now I don't know what I'll do.

      Comments about Babeland Double Panel Compression Shirt:

      I've been struggling with my gender for a while and finally decided to bite the bullet and buy a binder to help with my body dysphoria. Having a 34E chest, I was prepared for what I thought would be the inevitable - that I would not find a binder that could compress my chest. Thankfully, I was proven wrong. I ordered a size Medium, and the shirt makes my chest nearly flat. I realize that completely flat would be impossible due to my size but this shirt makes it pretty close. The shirt also makes it look like I just have a muscular and more male shaped chest, and you can't tell that I'm wearing a binder.

      All in all, it's wonderful and those who have larger chests should definitely try this out!

      Comments about Babeland Double Panel Compression Shirt:

      This binder offers excellent compression and totally flattens out my chest (I bought the size small, and I'm just about a 32B), creating excellent lines underneath button-downs, t-shirts, and tank tops. I was uncomfortable wearing t-shirts for years until I found this binder! It's breathable, but can definitely heat up when it's warm out. It's one of the few binders that's been comfortable enough for me to go on a bike ride while wearing, which is a plus. My one qualm is the length - longer binders like this have a tendency to roll up unless tucked it. I prefer the half-binder style, which can easily be achieved by cutting the bottom portion. Easy to clean and care for (machine wash or hand wash cold, and always air dry - never apply heat). In an ideal world, we'd also have tons of color options, but for now, white and black do the trick and pair well with most of my outfits when the binder is visible.

      Comments about Babeland Double Panel Compression Shirt:

      This has been my favorite chest binder. It fully squares out my torso which gives me a more masculine shape - which can be a benefit to some, if that's what you're looking for. It acts as a good flattener and doesn't bunch up under my shirt. The only downside is that it gets kind of hot in the summer, if one has to spend a lot of time outside.

        Comments about Babeland Double Panel Compression Shirt:

        I wear this shirt under all of my favorite button up shirts when I go out or dress up. I think it breathes well and doesn't feel like too much pressure against my chest.

        I don't really wear this when I ride my bike, because i personally think biking involves too much sweating for a full compression shirt. That being said, when I am not exercising, the shirt totally flattens my chest just right so all my button ups look fly.

        • Only under a hoodie

        Comments about Babeland Double Panel Compression Shirt:

        I don't have a big chest (maybe a small 'C' at most) but this binder just made me look like I was wearing a tight sports bra. It even made it look like I had cleavage if I wasn't careful to constantly pull it up. At the same time, it is way too long. The neck is too big and it bunches, adding to the 'sports bra' look. It bit into my sides and my t-shirt got caught in the creases, which was very embarrassing.
        I didn't find the binder that hard to put on, especially since I used some baby powder, and aside from the creases on the sides it wasn't that uncomfortable. I just wish that it actually did what it said it would do and flattened my chest so that I could be comfortable in a t-shirt on the days when I'm not so comfortable with my body.

              Comments about Babeland Double Panel Compression Shirt:

              I love playing with gender expression, but it's always been hard to wear masculine clothes with 40G breasts. All of the buttons on my plaid shirts look strained. With this compression shirt it really flattens out my chest and makes my button-up shirts loose! With the mesh back it allows air to get to your skin, even in warm weather. The compression is comfortable and helps your posture.

              While all the other binding techniques that I�__ve tried (double sports bra/ace bandage) have left me feeling not only unsatisfied with the result, but in pain from deep impressions on my body and long-term pressure, this shirt has quickly become a comfortable, effective staple in my daily wardrobe. And it has made a noticeable difference in my feelings about my body.

              Comments about Babeland Double Panel Compression Shirt:

              Which is more uncomfortable to you personally? Going out in the world with obvious breasts? Or, wearing something which is tight enough to truly hide them? Is it a fun" choice to make, likely not, unlike most of Babeland's offerings. Is it essential for those of us who aren't gendered in a way which is down with rocking breasts on our chests? Substantially more likely. If you've ever resorted to duct taping, ace bandage binding, or multiple sports bra wearing then these will be more comfortable than that. If you were pronounced male at birth and are uncomfortable with folks noticing bumps under your shirt, then these are more comfortable than that. The comfort of this product comes with the aesthetic confidence you go out into the world with. If it feels too tight initially, then you probably have the right size. This is a compression shirt and as such it compresses. Not only heart pumping activities like jogging, but even everyday activities like climbing the front steps to get into your apartment will initially take some getting used to. Both you and the compression shirt will adjust after several wearings. For me, I've gotten so used to them that I actually do everything including jogging in them. Babeland, not only are you blowing my mind with your new Gender Expression category and those amazing Pete packer underwear, but you've made it possible for me to shop for almost everything I need through you...next up please offer us a good/realistic/packable STP!!!"
