Binds are made from one continuous piece of muslin. No base-piece is provided as it is far more desirable for a mother to use her own nursing tank top or a close fitting knit cami as base layer as it is more form fitting to the body & easier to bind over. Using your own base layer is also far less likely to bunch under the bind. Smaller fabric pieces are provided to use if you choose to use a belly firming paste under your binding. This will help cover the paste protecting your clothing and your bind.
