I find this item to be very comfortable. I originally ordered one that had the clips higher, like around my armpits. That style did NOT work for me. I am broad shouldered with a large chest. I recommend this suspender style for anyone with a larger body frame or chest. I bought two of these so I can always have a clean one to wear since it is 24/7 gear for a bit following my surgery. Love it!!!
I know why I'm wearing a compression garment after abdominoplasty, and I wear it all the time for a month after sizing down from wearing a similar garment for a month previously, except when I'm washing it. However, the garment isn't sized properly for my thighs, and it therefore rubs horribly along the 'crotchless' edges. Which makes wearing it from my incision down incredibly uncomfortable. The top portion is perfectly fit and incredibly comfortable, and I prefer it immensely over my previous garment with the zippers and latches as it would begin to slip down and bunch up. So, I'm torn as to an accurate rating but most likely if you need to wear this following expensive elective surgery, you'll be willing to suffer through the lack of proper fit and discomfort in certain areas so long as the stomach for instance it well fit and helps in healing and retaining proper form and shape, as well as providing some extra support.
This is by far the most comfortable post surgical garment I’ve worn. It offers the perfect level of compression for the 2nd stage of recovery. The material is soft with no bothersome seams that irritate sensitive post operative skin. The legs do not roll up and are not at all uncomfortable. I do wish they were just a little shorter as they tend to peek out a little when wearing a shorter dress. I was a little leery of using the open crotch to use the bathroom but it worked perfectly! I highly recommend this product.
Overall experience very, very good! I am satisfied with fit, quality, temperature and comfort. I enjoy how well garment fits under my clothes( no bulk- just smooth) and it's healing powers after cosmetic surgery. Marena size guide is accurate and i followed to determine best fit. I received tons of feedback from many to choose Marena over other leading brands and happy to be a customer.
I appreciate the knowledge of your staff as it helped me select the right garment and size.
