We provide gender-affirming undergarments for the trans, nonbinary, and gender non-conforming community of Central Illinois.
As a partnership between the Unitarian Universalist Church of Bloomington-Normal and the Prairie Pride Coalition, we offer no-cost binders, gaffs, and shapers for those living in McLean, Livingston, DeWitt, Peoria, Tazwell, and Marshall counties.
We provide both pick-up and delivery services depending what’s easiest for you to access these items. We have some items in our existing inventory but are happy to order new items by request when necessary.
Pick-ups can be scheduled through the Unitarian Universalist Church of Bloomington-Normal.
About the Items
As each of these items use some form of compression to achieve their intended results, it’s important to follow safety guidelines on wearing these items to prevent injury. Wearing compression clothing that is too restrictive over several hours each day can cause health problems. Please ensure that you know your measurements before requesting an item.
Binders help to smooth out the appearance of the chest. They come in a variety of styles, ranging from a full-compression tank top to a cropped half-binder that primarily only covers the chest.
Gaffs maintain compression during tucking. They are cut like other bottom undergarments, coming in styles such as boyshorts, hipsters, and thongs.
Shapers can work to create a curvier physique through compression and lifting. Different styles provide different benefits, but most resemble a partial bodysuit around the torso, hips, and upper thighs.
