    If you are a transman who has not had any sort of bottom surgery yet or just a transman in general, I would not recommend using talcum powder in your body. It is found to cause ovarian cancer, and can create infections in the skin. Use non-talcum powder based men's deodorant to help with moisture and odor control, as it is meant for that. I would recommend using a clear spray (Dove Active Sport for Men) so that way your binder is not stained with powered deodorant.

    You could look for some natural powder alternatives - the ingredient in talcum powder that is linked to cancer is the 'talc' part and there are other powders that don't contain that. Lush do a great range of natural deodorants and dusting powders that you could try to help absorb and sweat. I personally prefer that over anti perspirants because the body is meant to sweat when it gets hot and natural powders allow it to do so without your boobs getting too gross!

    I use a lush dusting powder and haven't seen a detrimental effect on my binders but can't comment on the overall/general effect that they might have on binder fabric.
