It fits snugly on me and is relatively easy to clean.
I love this garment. This is my 2nd one they are so comfortable that I don't even know I have it on. Great product.
Great post op as a stage 2 garment. Super comfy.
I was placed in a Marena Stage 1 compression garment directly from tummy tuck surgery, and had tried on the correct size in the surgeon's office pre-surgery. I found the garment comfortable, practical and easy to wear. When I was ready to graduate to a Stage 2 garment, I saw no reason to switch brands and continued with the Marna Zipperless Girdle with Suspensers, with short legs. First of all, I knew the correct size from the original tummy tuck garment (XL). My post surgery measurements are 40-36-42. Secondly, I prefer the open crotch. I use scar cream and scar sheets, and rolling a compression garment down each time I use the restroom would mess up the scar treatment. The open crotch works for all bathroom needs and it stays clean. I wear panties over the compression, which might not be necessary but it's a preference. Since this garment has suspenders, it never rides down, and the high back smooths out any bra lines. At night, I wear a cotton T-shirt sports bra and layer it under the top of the garment just to make sure the straps or upper band don't rub. The material is firm but stretchy. Pulling the garment on takes a little effort because it's clingy and stretchy, but if you select the correct size it's easy and doable. Now that I am going into summer, I find that the shorts on the model I currently have are too long and I am going to order the high-waist girdle bikini to wear this summer. If you plan on wearing these daily (which I plan to do for months), go ahead and purchase at least two so you can wear one while you wash out and dry the second. I have both machine washed and hand washed these, and the compression is just as good at 3 1/2 months. A tummy tuck surgery is a major investment and the right compression garment should help care for your investment, and not feel like a torture device.
Worth the cost - it is obvious no other brands have as high quality as Marena. This was my first time use a post op garment, but I have used many other compression garments and this is by far the most comfortable. The seams are barely there so it doesn’t cause itchy or irritating indentions. This was used for liposuction on abdomen to be used for fat graft after having a breast cyst removed. It is perfect to avoid the pain and incisions on my breast and allows proper room for a front zip bra.
