That's nothing that 2 6 inch lengths of gaffer tape wouldn't fix.

You have raised a a couple of good points for all female birders.

My husband has a non-elastic model (called Bino Suspenders with quick-

we first bought it (at the Rutland Bird Fair in the UK) we also tried
an elastic model which we felt seemed too "bouncy" when you walked and
did not really look up to the job.
These harnesses have not really caught on in the UK (presumably not
sufficiently macho) but they are very widely used in the US.
A word of warning for lady readers of this list - I do not use a
harness as I tried on two models and found that there was a distinctly
unfortunate location of the straps in relation to the female anatomy.
So it would be a good idea to "try before you buy".
My solution was to buy very lightweight bins - my Minox 8x30s are
extremely light and due to the development of technology probably give
as good a view as many much heavier 8x40s from 10 years ago.
