I am sorry you are having challenges with body dysphoria. I am hoping these articles might give you some ideas of how to cope with your situation. I cannot vouch for the ones from other sites because I am not familiar with them but they seemed to be more closely aligned with what you are asking for.

Wearing baggy clothes. Practicing a male voice and mannerisms. Look at voice therapy. Practicing my female voice helps me a lot. I'm happier when I do it.

There are twenty things you can do other than physical transition while you wait to get out of your parents' clutches. Practicing male mannerisms is important to making sure you get read as a man.

A tight sports bra can work a little bit, I've heard. If you can raise the money, you can buy a binder online without your parents knowing.

There are some binder giveaway actions.

Transgender Advice ? Transgender Care Packages

First aid:

* wear two sports bra (there are a lot of trans ppl out there using this method)
* Sports compression wear

A common trick in buying/recieving a binder with unsupportive parents would be the old "it's for cosplay" excuse.

Like TulipKitten said, there is much more besides hiding your breasts that you can do, but I know that some days your breasts seem to undermine you so hart it hurts, so I hope you'll find a way dealing with them that works for you
