Bras Outside the Box: You're transmasculine; can you say a little more about what this means for you personally? Do you identify exclusively as male?
Justice: I do not. I tend to identify as transmasculine agender. However, as this is a more obscure identifier, I stick with simpler terms in non-trans circles. I prefer gender-neutral pronouns to be used when referring to me.
BOTB: What do you look for in a bra, besides a good fit?
J: I look for solid colors and simple lines. I do like patterns, but nothing ostentatious. Something fun, without the extra bells and whistles. I definitely prefer basics though.
BOTB: Where do you shop for bras, either online or in real life? Have you ever been fitted for a bra?
J: Online, typically. I have not been fitted for a bra by another person, as I prefer not to allow people into my personal space.
BOTB: How has your experience with bras and lingerie changed since you realized you were trans?
J: I think if anything I've become more aware of my choices.
BOTB: Do you wear binders? If so, where do you get them, and what brand do you wear?
J: I do! I buy these online as well. My favorite binder is by GC2b.
BOTB: Anything else you'd like to share about yourself or your search for a good bra?
J: Yes. Although I prefer the look a binder gives, the reason I sometimes choose to wear bras is simple. Due to the size and shape of my chest, a bra will reduce my awareness that there is something there, therefore reducing any sex dysphoria I might have. It will also help with issues like chafing, sweating, etc.
