Bound

A first reader of God’s War argued that there must be a better term for the wraps/cloth one uses to bind one’s breasts other than, “breast binding.”

I finally sat down and did some research tonight, and I’m telling you: I still can’t find a better term.

The closest I came to finding a less clunky term for it is a “binder.”

Bra, sports bra, breast wrap, wrap, binding, kimono, corset… but no actual term for a piece of clothing or wrap meant exclusively for the binding of the breasts.

Considering how many thousands of years women have been dressing up like men in order to gain more freedom in the world, I find it funny that I can’t find an actual term for this.

Anybody else know of one?
