I am a transgender guy, I recently used this vest for post-operative compression after my top surgery (mastectomy with masculine reconstruction and ****** grafts) It was a bit expensive but since I have to wear compression 24/7 for 6 weeks (a bit longer than normal due to complications) I needed something comfortable and this was very easy to use and comfortable. I love how it closes with only three clasps and then a zipper. I would recommend for top surgery. The material is soft and offers a 12ent compression without feeling too tight. The size was just right for me, I have a size 42 chest (measurement under armpits) and a large was perfect. Buy this well ahead of your surgery because shipping took a few weeks to arrive to Canada. This is worth the money just for the fact it is so easy to take on and off, which makes dressing changes easy. I had a few other vests because i have extended health insurance that covered my costs. I bought 2 from a well known ftm binder company which were not practical because it was a full length shirt that compressed my stomach. Also Undoing all the clasps is just too cumbersome on many other vests. I definitely would recommend this vest above any others i have tried, despite the higher cost.
Great product. Used after top surgery. Arrived in a few business days despite being out of country. Very uncomfortable and itchy for a few days, but that subsided once I got used to it. Allowed me to feel safe and compressed 24/7 and was easy to take on and off independently. Worth the price!
The vest itself is very soft and very comfortable. The zipper is well padded and the compression is bearable all day. The sizing was spot on, even though it was different from street clothes. The two stars down were taken off due to the Velcro closure at the shoulders. Adjustable hooks would give a better range of sizing, and are offered on the other vest marena makes. The Velcro on this model makes it hard to close, it bends up and rubs during wear causing sores, and makes them more visible too. Offering the hook closure m on the shoulders of this vest would have made it a 5 star review from me.
High quality and easy to use! This vest is absolutely perfect for post-lipo surgery of the male chest. Easy to sleep with too.
I had a bilateral mastectomy without a ****** graft on the 8th of 02ruary, 2021. I purchased this compression vest in black as a replacement for the vest which the surgery center provided me. The vest is easy to put on and take off, and the combination of clasps and the zipper allowed for the vest to lay flat without uncomfortable bunching or slipping. I did not have this vest while I had my drains in, but based on how little the vest moves or needs adjusting while wearing it, I know it would have been comfortable. I absolutely recommend this product to anyone who will be having the same procedure - it has made an immense difference in my day to day comfort, while ensuring I stay protected and don't have fluid build up.
