Emma Corrin opens up on wearing chest binder

The Crown actor Emma Corrin shared black and white pictures of herself on Instagram recently. In them, she is seen wearing a boxing wrap around her chest.

“Some time before I bought my first binder,” the 25-year-old actor wrote alongside the pictures and called it a “very intimate, very new, very cool” journey.

She added, “Lots of twists and turns and change and that’s ok! Embrace it.”

For the uninitiated, a chest binder is a piece of constrictive fabric worn across the breasts to make them appear flatter. It is known to be a popular practice among transgender and non-binary people, especially in case of a female-to-male transition.

According to, chest binding, if not done with proper safety, can cause health issues like breast pain, skin irritation and infection. It is recommended that one only wears a dedicated binder or a sports bra with high compression.

Corrin shared that she uses binders made by trans-owned company g2cb. Their binders feature “‘a patented front and back, double panel, mixed material design to construct a flat appearance through superior tissue distribution and comfortable compression”, as per the official website.

According to, the actor who played the role of Princess Diana, changed her pronouns to she/they and also added them briefly to her Instagram page. At present, her social media account does not show the pronouns.

In April, she also shared a picture from the cover photo shoot for Pop magazine and captioned the post, “Ur fave queer bride.”
