In participation with LGBTQA+ Student Initiatives, the Care Closet @ NKU is now offering chest binders to NKU students at no cost.

When used properly, chest binders can reduce certain feminine characteristics by providing individuals with the appearance of a flat chest. If you would like more information about obtaining a chest binder, please fill out the form below or email

Chest binders should be used according to manufacturer instructions. If used improperly, chest binding may cause or contribute to skin irritation or tenderness or more severe health issues. NKU does not provide training on how to properly use chest binders. If you have questions on proper use or have issues related to misuse, please consult with a qualified medical professional.

Before requesting a binder, please read through this full page, so that you are prepared to answer the questions on the form. 

The form will ask for your binder selection and sizing, so you will need to be prepared with your measurements/sizing before filling out the form.


We currently have a limited supply of binders available. Please stop by the Care Closet @ NKU to see if we have your size in stock.

Monetary donations are always welcome in an effort to increase our ability to provide chest binders to all students in need.
