3 Use and product information
3.1 I'm having difficulty putting on my product, or taking it off. What can I do?
3.2 How long should I wear a binder?
We recommend that you never wear a binder for more than 8 hours. More information about wearing a binder can be found under: He/They>binders
. At the bottom of this page you will find more information about binders.
3.3 Which binder is right for me?
Choosing a binder is very personal. Some people like to wear a shorter binder, such as the Short Binder, others like to flatten their hips with the Shirt Binder. If you have wider hips, we recommend opting for a short binder, because a longer model can roll up. If you have a slightly larger size, we do not recommend purchasing a Band model binder, because there is a possibility of it sagging. For sports we recommend our Gym Binder. If you are still in doubt, you can always contact us.
3.4 Which breast prosthetics are right for me?
Choosing the right breast prostheses is very personal. Some people like to have a slightly fuller bust, others want a more medium size. If you have a broad chest we recommend purchasing the triangle prostheses, if you have a narrower chest we recommend purchasing the oval prostheses. If you are still in doubt, you can always contact us!
3.5 Which penis prosthetic is right for me?
Choosing a penile prosthesis is very personal and depends on your own wishes, the purpose for which you want to use the prosthesis and your build. For personal advice, we recommend that you contact us!
3.6 How can I tell which is the front and which is the back side of my binder?
It can be a little difficult to tell the front and back of our binders. If the tag is still attached, you can easily see it: the tag is always attached to the front. Another tip is to see which side has deeper armholes: the back has deeper cut armholes to give the shoulder blades room to move.
3.7 Can I swim with a binder?
Officially, our binders are not made for swimming. Prolonged contact with chlorine-, sea- or other bathing water can affect the fabric and damage the product in the long run. Our swimming products are more resistant to water, you can find these under: He/They>swimwear
3.8 Can I swim with my breast prosthetics?
The material of the silicone breast prosthetics is perfectly suitable for swimming.
3.9 Can I swim with my foam padding?
The foam pads, such as the foam penis padding and the foam penis padding with shape, are slightly water-repellent and could therefore be used in water. However, we do not guarantee the durability of the product with prolonged use in water.
3.10 Can I swim with the Mr. Limpy?
You can swim with the Mr. Limpy, but keep in mind that the material will deteriorate quicker due to chlorine or seawater. Customer experiences also show that the mr. Limpy can become more compact over time, with intensive use. The product retains its shape and structure but becomes slightly smaller. The material "shrinks" as it were. We recommend that after swimming the Mr. Always limpy to roll in cornstarch to prevent it from sticking or getting dirty.
3.11 How do I put on my silicone torso?
First, turn the silicone torso inside out. Use talcum powder on the skin and on the inside of the torso to facilitate donning. The edges are very thin and therefore fragile. Handle with care to avoid cracking.
