What is TransTape?


If you’re wondering what all this TransTape talk is on social, then you’ve come to the right place!
TransTape is a gender-affirming, body transformation system that’s a backless and waterproof alternative to chest binders, packers, gaffes, bras, and other self-affirming products.


TransTape continues to create more products to help transform bodies and ease gender dysphoria while allowing people to find comfort in their skin for days on end. There are many ways and techniques to apply TransTape since there are many different body sizes and chest densities. These videos are to help you get all the info you need to learn about this incredible system in one place.


What’s in it?


TransTape is made from a blend of 95% cotton and 5% spandex with a hypoallergenic medical-grade acrylic adhesive that is latex free and non-medicated. 


Who Created TransTape?


Transtape was created in 2016, when my good friend Kaiyote, at the age of 35, discovered and accepted that he was transgender. After a lifetime of hatred and disconnect from his body, he searched for products to help align his mind and body. Like most trans men, he instantly purchased a “traditional” binder to help hide his chest and create a more masculine look.


Upon putting the binder on, he felt more like himself but was very uncomfortable, especially in the New England heat and humidity. He knew there needed to be a better alternative to the classic binding technique that leaves most people overheated, feeling restricted, and on a time limit of 8 hours of use.


He remembered a kinetic tape that the chiropractor used on him and that lasted a week before needing to be removed. After experimenting and finding it to be too narrow for the proposed use. He then researched companies that could provide him with a wider tape with more skin tones to match more body types and sizes. His first application changed his life and after a year of keeping it to himself, he knew he needed to share this technique with the community, and thus TransTape was born. The company strives to be all-inclusive to give everyone the chance to find their freedom.

I’m thankful to be on the TransTape team and be a part of this business since 2017! If you want to try TransTape for yourself use my code AARONC for 10% off your order instantly. 😀
