Get a Binder - Qualifications

Before filling out an application, please take a minute to review our requirements and restrictions. When you are ready, you may proceed to the application.

Location

Due to postage costs, In a Bind only ships within the United States. Puerto Rico is included in US domestic mailing.

Age

All of our binders are sent to youth ages 18 and younger. If you are 19 or older, please do not fill out an application.

Use

We send binders to people who will use them to curb dysphoria and/or to assist with daily gender presentation. While we support and encourage gender play for fun and performance, we ask that drag kings and the like do not apply. Please help us save our limited supply of binders for trans-masculine and genderqueer youth suffering from dysphoria.

Number

We originally gave applicants the option of requesting one or two binders, with the idea that people will need something to wear while a binder is in the wash. However, due to demand far out pacing supply, we can now only send out one binder per person.

Need

Our binders go to people based on demonstration of actual need. 'Need' may be financial (can't afford a new binder) or circumstantial (living with unsupportive parents). Please understand that we are a non-profit trying to help as many youth as possible. Please be honest with yourself and In a Bind when demonstrating need.
