Hi

I'm looking for a compression vest, designed specifically for gyne if possible, or if that's too expensive, then a sports vest sort of thing that might help flatten my chest.

Anyone know of any UK websites/stores that sell good ones?

thanks

I'm in the same position as you mate. I got diagnosed with the condition about a month ago but I knew something wasn't right for a good 3-4 years. Are you considering having surgery?

I hope it won't come to surgery - I'm trying to lose weight, but I want a good, discreet undergarment that might flatten my chest. I've looked on ebay and there are a couple of ones designed specifically for Gyne.

I'm wondering if I should also buy one of those tight sports tops you see in shops like JD sports

ye i knw what you mean. Im not sure either. I was thinking of getting one of those nike pro vests but I heard theyr not as good at compression. If you don't mind me askin mate how old are you? I've also heard that this can just be a stage you pass through as you go through puberty. I'm 20 now and Iv still got a problem with my chest so I'm considering surgery. The price is a pain in the ass though.

Just buy some from the states... underworks have a good reputation for shipping to the UK.. I've bought from GC2 Compression vests from USA ebay numerous times with no issues and their prices aren't too bad.

I'm 26 - my gyne happened about a year ago, I'm pretty sure it was a side effect of a medication I was taking.

If you haven't seen your GP yet, then do so, and ask him to refer you to a specialist endocrinologist who can do tests to find out what is causing your gyne. Make sure you do this before even considering surgery. Good luck  :)
