Good evening,

I have been wondering for a while, do other Trans men use a binder while swimming or is this a bad idea/unsafe to do? I enjoy swimming but, I feel very uncomfortable in most swimsuits and was hoping for some advice or tips on what others have tried or suggest.

@inuyasha I was in the hotel pool and spa today, most days really. I wear a one piece suit, always because of my tummy, and just tuck. Sometimes I will wear a thong backwards under the suit to keep me in place.

i voted other too , because i dont know yet. Womens swim suit does make sense. I thought about a bodysuit when i was reading the title.

That's a good suggestion, I hadn't thought about that.

Thank You! πŸ™‚

I use a woman’s swimsuit a the moment, i wear a swim shirt over top and shorts with coverage to help a bit.

But you can wear a binder when swimming, just make sure its a size or two up from your usual one. There are also compression tops which may be good for swimming. You can also use kinesiology tape to bind which is the safest option.

Here’s a link on how to use kinesiology tape for binding

<p style="text-align: left;">I wear women's bikini tops and basically pretend that it's not there. I wear a lot of shirts that have the sleeve cut off and it will usually be cut down to my hips and midway over my chest so the sides of my top show and my whole side.Β  But its better than a binder or bra and the shirts usually baggy enough to water down the size of my bust if any of that makes sense. But I'll pop the shirt off anywhere, in my mind the bikini basically makes the bust invisible. but my bust only a b so there's not a whole lot for me to put down but I can imagine it wouldn't be that way for someone with bigger.</p>

I'll begin wearing a bikini when I transition after my hormones have gone into effect.

I'm a transgender woman.

My breasts are small enough to swim without a top so I will swim and I have no issues being seen with my small breasts.
