I purchased this suit for use after my breast augmentation, lipo of my arms, back. flanks, and legs, with BBL. In conjunction with the Marena FlexFit Original Bra, this was perfect! It served its purpose, and the fabric is amazing, soft and breathable and resists getting body odors. The compression is just right, not like other brands that are so tight they cut off your circulation. I started out with the large and then sized down into a medium two weeks post op. I love the three rows of hooks the garment provides, so it’s adjustable as your inflammation reduces. Each row looks to be about a centimeter difference, so you can get longer use out of this garment than with other brands that don’t offer this, forcing you to purchase different sizes more often. This garment together with the bra, if you do full body work, are so worth the money! My only complaint would be to make the legs a little bit longer, just below the knee. After lipo of my thighs, I had bruising extending into my inner knees, and I needed compression there to help with the swelling and bruising. Even though my lipo only entended to my mid thigh, my surgeon explained to me that that because of gravity, the bruising and inflammation travel down, so support a little further down the keg was warranted. I would also say if Marena could make an option for bodysuits for women below a certain height, the garments would fit better. I’m 5’2” and this garment always fit a little long on my back and torso, causing bunching on my lower back and rubbing below my breast incisions. This was resolved by hiking up the back a few times a day and opening up the top hook, but still I think this garment is made for taller women. That being said, I still love this garment and it’s the best quality out there. It is 100% worth the money. I recommend the black one, with the matching bra, which look super cute as outerwear with an open shirt or cardigan.
This bodysuit is AMAZING!! I thought the size was crazy when I first looked but they are accurate. I am now ordering the next size down - well actually two sizes down because I think they are the best hands down.
I ordered the size that matched the measurements my doctor took. I was surprised but the garment fits perfect!! I started on the 1st hook and am now on the middle and have 1 more after that. I think I will order the next size down to continue wearing after the post op period as it's that comfortable.
My measurements prior to surgery were 138 lbs and I’m 5’2. I ordered a size L. My surgeon said to purchase this garment which worked great. However, I wish there was a panel or something that would open in the back in order to go #2. You will need assistance putting garment on and off to handle your business.
I bought so many other garments from Other brands and for some reason or another they were not comfortable… this one is so comfy and yet compresses all the right areas! This is my go to garment.
