First, pick a style! Are you here for the scales? Do you like outer space? Maybe your Patronus is an animal that sheds its skin and is born anew, for some reason. Or maybe you’re here for a binder that matches your skin tone and looks invisible under a shirt.
Once you’ve chosen, head into that listing, pick out a color or design, and consider length. Your options are Short (12”-16”), Medium (17”-22”), and Long (23”-30”); you will have the chance to specify an inch measurement within these ranges. All lengths are vertical from shoulder to hem, when laid flat. (Look out soon for a blog post detailing the advantages and disadvantages of each option!)
Finally, if you chose Short or Medium, in most listings you have the option to extend the outer layer! This will keep the inner binding mesh at your specified Short or Medium length, and lengthen the outer layer down to a maximum of 30”. Many folks find this a useful way to have a binder that tucks into a waistband, without squeezing the midsection or becoming too hot.
Now it’s time to take your measurements. You’ll find a measurement guide at the bottom of each listing. Take all measurements as directed and note them down somewhere -- you'll need them in a moment! When you have your measurements and have made all your choices for fabric, length, and outer layer, click "Add to Cart." When you hit that button, a form will pop up for you to insert your measurements and further customize your binder.
At this point you can either decide to check out, or you can continue to the Add-ons section! Here you can purchase additional customizations: a zipper, racerback, hood, and/or sleeves.
