Can I swim in my binder?

    Yes. Wash it as soon as possible afterword's though. Use chlorine removing shampoo with your regular binder washing soap if you have it. Chlorine will, over time, wear your binder down, that is if you let it sit. If you wear it to a salt water pool, beach, pond, etc., just wash it normally. So, Swim all day, enjoy the pool, beach, wherever, but WASH YO BINDA.

    This is more of a comfort tip than a really important thing to remember. This is like advice if being stealth is important to you or if dysphoria and passing is a priority. 

    On top of making sure you are careful with your binder and having a dedicated swimming binder, consider the colour too. All the colours other than white (and maybe nude? i dont own a nude colour so i wouldnt be able to input on it) are ideal as they dont go very see through when wet. Like the original post said, the material isnt a problem as it can pass very well for a rashguard.

    How hard of physical exercise will I be able to do while swimming in a binder? I get that you can’t work out, but if I run on the beach after my friends and play tag for instance, do I have to take my binder off? What are the limits?

    Considering that it is mentioned that chlorine eats away at the material, is it possible for you to produce an option of binder made from chlorine resistant material?? As a swim teacher I am in chlorine water 5 out of 7 days a week, and i always buy high quality chlorine resistant bathers, etc; and i would more readily purchase and wear a chlorine resistant binder option at work.
