I am a 15 year old teen.
I am deciding to order a Chest Binder #997 from Underworks to hide my man boobs.
Should i be binding at this age? Should i ask my doctor? Will it cause any harmful effects? Or is it safe?
I just want to hide my man boobs !!! So if you have another solution please tell me :)

Have you got it now? Some can be hard to breathe in, in my experience. My first one was effective but very uncomfortable. A lot not breathable so trap sweat which obvious isnt good for skin health. Not sure about any serious side effects though.

If you have not had surgery, then a compression shirt should be just fine. It will provide a nice contour for you. 

I use a chest binder for my post op patients because I need very firm compression to minimize swelling -- but that is not what you need.

Go the shirt route!
