Bindly was founded in 2021 by Tomas Vasquez. She started the company because her (trans) brother, who was experiencing dysphoria about his chest, asked her if she could make him a compression top. Tomas gladly took on the challenge and used her sewing experience to develop her first binder for him. More and more people started coming to her for gender-affirming items. What began as a one-room endeavour quickly grew into a larger business with expertise on shapewear for gender-creative people. Over the years the company grew and moved offices to its current location in Los Angeles, California
Fast forward to 2023: Bindly has grown into a thriving business with a dedicated team. Its’ mission is still the same as it had been when Tomas made her first binder back in 2021: to make gender affirming items that celebrate any and every gender expression - with high quality fabrics and a great eye for detail and comfort.
