I felt like my binder fit perfectly, except maybe being a bit big around the chest and shoulders, but that was no problem for me. The first day, it was fine, maybe wore it for about 4-5 hours and everything was great, no pain did the job flattening. then a week later and I wore it for 2-3 hours, took it off, I had this awful pain around my back and ribs after taking it off. I have no pain when the binder is on but when I take it off that is when the pain starts. is this normal? idk. I've only worn it twice. does my body have to get used to it or something? I measured myself and it seems I'm the closest to the size I ordered. I did send contact help but I want to ask about others experiences too. this is my first time binding.
I have Asperger's syndrome and sensory issues, so all clothes feel uncomfortable to me regardless of what it is, but I've never felt back and rib pain like this before in my life.
I still occasionally get weird uncomfortable, stabby-jabby rib feelings even though it's been a few days since I wore my binder but maybe it's just from something else and it can be a coincidence?
edit: i should mention its a tank binder idk if that helps
