The global breast binders market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% by 2028, according to a new report published by Coherent Market Insights, Inc. Increasing awareness and demand for products such as bras are expected to drive the growth of this market during the forecast period.
Breast binders are devices that compress the breasts, which makes them less visible. They can be used by trans men and others with physical gender dysphoria to make their chest more masculine or for other reasons such as post-surgery support.
In some cases, breast binding is done in conjunction with surgery - this may help reduce discomfort after surgery; it also helps flatten the tissue so that bras can be worn during recovery without uncomfortable pressure on newly formed tissues. It may also allow time for surgical swelling to decrease before wearing a bra again. A doctor will usually advise against using a binder too soon following surgery because of risks from overstretching skin and bruising (medical advice should always be followed).
Breast binding may not be the preferred method for people with larger chests, as it can cause further discomfort and even pain when chasing an already tight binder or wearing too many layers. It also does nothing to help correct any size differences in breasts that are unevenly sized (also known as asymmetrical).
On the basis of type, the global breast binders market is segmented into removable type and adjustable type.
Removable type breast binders are made of light materials that are designed to be removed after use. They are often worn by a variety of people for different purposes, including transgender women as well as those who experience back pain or chest pain. The adhesive backing is usually left on the binder and can be peeled off after purchase if desired. These types tend to cost less than other options because they don’t need any adjustments done before each wearing session.
Adjustable type breast binders are available on the market in various shapes. The shape of the adjustable breast binder depends upon the purpose, usage, and requirements of customers. They can be customized according to body size and requirement for support as per individual preferences.
A wide range of adjustable type breast binders is available in the market. Under this category, there is a variety of materials used to make these products such as polyester, nylon, and cotton that suit different needs of consumers. They come with increased capacity for compression level adjustment and most importantly they provide tailor-made fit according to individual's preferences. Some adjustable also offer chest size adjustments by way of velcro strips or zippers on the front so that they can be quickly adjusted without removing from the body completely which makes them easier and less time-consuming than removable types.
On the basis of application, the global breast binders market is segmented into adults and teenagers.
The global breast binders market in adults is segmented into postmenopausal women, pre-menopause women, and transgender. The teenagers' category, is divided into crossdressers, transvestites, and transsexuals who use these products to dress like the opposite sex.

Adults are further categorized as females with natural breasts, mastectomy patients, and those who have undergone bilateral breast reduction surgery.
Females with natural breasts require compression to avoid pain from engorgement of milk ducts or cysts that can form in the mammary glands during pregnancy. Mastectomy patients also face similar issues due to changes in hormone levels post-surgery which lead to excessive buildup of fluid around their chest area leading to discomfort owing mainly to lymphoedema. And finally, there are adolescents who use these products for flattening chests before gender reassignment surgeries (GRS).
