    Hiya! The biggest signs to look for if your binder is too small are:

    -Pain after less than 8-12 hours of wear

    -Tingling in arms or fingers (A sign of cut off circulation)

    -Significant difficulty breathing not due to another factor such as anxiety or asthma

    -Red marks anywhere from it digging into the skin

    -Difficulty getting it over your shoulders

    -"Spillage" of tissue out of the top, sides, or bottom

    How do I know what is the front and what is the back?

    The front has the thicker, binding part and the lower neckline.

    I have a question about the shoulder thing. What if it is hard to get on over your shoulder because its rolling? It keeps trying to roll up together when I put it on.

    Fold the bottom of the binder up once before trying to put it on, that way the bottom seam is easy to find and gently tug the roll out and down. This can help a lot with getting it over the shoulders if that's where you are finding trouble.

    My binder is too tight and gives me shoulder and back pains. The chart says I should go for medium. What should i do now? I only tried to put it on once, and now I am parking it. Could you help me fix this?
