The hardest part is selecting the proper size when trying to use pre-surgical measurements. Ordered an XL based on the measurements but tried one before surgery and did not seem very snug. Ordered an L and brought both to the post op visit, it was determined that the L was a better fit so now I’m stuck with an XL that I can’t use. The garment itself, once the correct size is used, has a lot more consistent compression than the wraps used post op. So far the comfort is good, need to get a second one asap for washing while wearing the other one.
Overall these were great for post op. My MLd therapist did have to cut a slit under armpit so it stopped digging. I’ve also learned I have to wear them over tops as the back hook part was rubbing too much. After minor adjustments they are working well.
Well, I hate to say bad things about a product, but there were several things here. First, try as I might to get the size right, it was just a little too big, and that was using the measurements on the website. So they are nowhere perfect. Second, I didn't know it was non-returnable. I had quite a moment when I saw the little tag that said, "once I open this, I can't return it," not knowing if it would fit or not. And third, the product is a bit overdone. Instead of being just pull over the head type and put your arms in, this product has lots of hooks and eyes, which hurt the back when you lay on it. So I had to sew a piece of fabric over all the hooks and eyes to keep it from hurting me. I would have liked it a lot more if it had really fit properly. I'm thinking about actually sewing a seam down the length to make it tighter. So overall, a bit disappointing, but when I got another huge amount of money, because fourth, it does cost quite a lot, I will buy another one that is one size smaller. On the good side, the fabric is light, and therefore good for wearing in summer.
Works great for arms but arm pit not good I had to cut it where the seam rubbed on my arm pit it rubbed my armpit and caused a big sore. Other than having to cut it they are great and work they way it should .
Comfortable and supportive. Perfect for after surgery
