The gusset was very helpful post surgery. I also appreciated the zipper and eye hooks for getting them on. They stretch out a bit fast but overall I am happy and they did the trick. Because they stretch out a bit fast I would suggest if you can going down a size. The second pair I had were long enough to cover my foot which was really helpful - that was a good design fix.
In all honesty these just don’t work for everyone. Mine because my ankles are so large ended up cutting off the circulation to my feet making it impossible to continue to wear them. The design of the removal foot piece also cause blisters on my ankles and large rolls of swelling because the two piece don’t overlap well unless you have ankles like the person pictured. And don’t get me started on the opening between the legs. Again unless you look like the person pictured, this just doesn’t work. They did however while I could wear them, keep my swelling down so I gave three stars but please consider the fact the we lippy ladies don’t normally look like the model and so the design is flawed for us with more fatty areas.
I purchased this garment after ordering another ankle length stage one recovery garment from Marena. Both are excellent quality and helpful for my recovery. I had calf and ankle liposuction and needed lower leg compression. The first garment was great but pushed the fluid into my feet so when I saw this garment, I thought it would combat that issue. To some degree, it did. Two things. Press the label inside the garment and lose the **** tag on the outside. That looks wrong so I cut it off but then couldn’t easily tell what was the right side of the garment. Not a biggie. The thing I would say is that I would like to see the inside foot of the garment (that ends on the top of the ankle) should go down on the foot a little further. Ending right at the ankle still pushed fluid into the foot as opposed to pushing it upwards. I imagine that would be the same for a lipodema patient. I tried wearing compression socks - you have to put them on first and under the garment. Not a biggie but why not just fix the garment.
