Alongside a set of black and white images of Emma wearing boxing wrap, a fabric binding used by boxers, she wrote: “some time before I bought my first binder, messing around with @sirdavidsimon, we used boxing wrap, thanks for capturing this with me, very intimate, very new, very cool. It’s all a journey right. Lots of twists and turns and change and that’s ok! Embrace it (sic)”
Chest binding is often used by people who wish to give the appearance of a flatter chest. However, Emma didn’t explain why she personally chooses to wear them.

Emma uses binders from gc2b, which is billed as the “very first gender-affirming apparel company that is trans-owned and operated”.
Emma’s post prompted a series of supportive messages from some of her showbiz pals, including singer Paloma Faith.
She wrote on the photo-sharing platform: “Beautiful pictures xx (sic)”
Artist Arlo Parks described the photos as “angelic” and the official Netflix account responded with a series of heart emojis.
Meanwhile, Emma previously suggested that her new-found fame has been made more manageable because of ongoing coronavirus restrictions.
