Our Story

A tale of turning dysphoria into euphoria!

Amor Sensory is a trans and disabled-owned company founded by Andy Amor, a nonbinary artist, designer, and fashion nerd who proudly identifies as neurodivergent. Specialising in gender-affirming chest binders, we offer sensory-friendly and size-inclusive clothing innovatively designed by an actual autistic trans person with comfort, fit, and size inclusivity in mind.

We believe that EVERYBODY deserves to feel comfortable and confident in their bodies and affirmed in who they are. Gender identity, size, and disability shouldn't be barriers to being able to express our true selves. Our mission is to spread gender euphoria far and wide and help the neurodivergent trans and gender-diverse community to comfortably celebrate and affirm their true selves, feel confident in their bodies, and have FUN!

Our founder Andy Amor began socially transitioning in 2014 and spent many months trying every chest binder they could get their hands on. They found everything they tried uncomfortable and unbearable to wear due to their sensory sensitivities. So Andy had the vision to be the change they wanted to see by starting their own line of sensory-friendly chest binders. They set their mind to designing chest binders that would be COMFORTABLE, inclusive, accessible, gender-affirming, and fun.

Having sewn and made their own clothing from a young age, Andy used their skill and knowledge to design their first sensory-friendly chest binder. They then continued to develop this design over several years, drawing from their own binding experience. Then in 2018, Andy began offering fittings and custom-making chest binders for the local trans and gender-diverse community. They soon found many people came to them because they struggled to find anything that fit their bodies or that were comfortable. Like Andy, they had often spent a small fortune on binders they couldn't wear. Some were losing hope that they could feel affirmed and comfortable in their body without surgery. Having comfortable binders that fit their bodies was life-changing. After seeing their positive impact on the local community, Andy decided it was time to branch out and make their binders available to the broader trans and gender-diverse community. Helping more people access safe, comfortable, and gender-affirming chest binders that fit THEIR BODIES.

Driven by their dream to spread gender euphoria as far and wide as possible, Andy set out to not only design comfortable chest binders and offer a wide size range but to develop binders that would ACTUALLY FIT well on a diverse range of bodies – including people with larger chests. They also set out to create a unique sizing system to help more people confidently order a chest binder that would fit THEIR body.

Thanks to Andy's hard work and dedication, we can proudly say that we are a TRULY size-inclusive brand. Amor Binders is the only range of chest binders in the world that are sensory-friendly and offer binders designed to fit well on people with large chests. Andy's dedication knows no bounds, and they achieved what they were told was impossible – to make chest binders commercially available, without the need to be custom-made, that could fit a diverse range of bodies. After perfecting their designs and working with professional pattern makers to make them ready for commercial production, in 2021, Amor Sensory officially launched its first range of sensory-friendly and size-inclusive chest binders.
