I ordered this Marena item at the recommendation of my surgeon for after a tummy tuck, and thigh lift. I chose the size medium according to my measurements. However, the unforgiving nature of the hooks and zipper did not allow for the increased swelling in the days after my procedure. At one point, I nearly passed out because of the constriction around my mid-section because the garment decreased the flow of blood so much. I tried the large size, but it still did not work and was so uncomfortable and at times painful to wear, I tossed both of them and found a Lululemon soft-stretch full length, high-waisted snug legging that works perfectly. It provides just enough pressure but is soft and gives with the changes my body is undergoing. There are stages for compression garments. Do your research. Too tight of a garment initially, reduces blood flow and hinders healing and can actually cause problems. Thank goodness I listened to my body.
Excellent and comfortable compression
My overall experience was truly great, I love these girdles. The Marena brand will always be my go to brand for girdles. Love this product.
Exactly what I was looking for. Easy on…easy off. Very comfortable. Feels good!
This is the best under garment I have. I'd looked for sometime for an over the knee coverage and I found the love of my life. The side zipper is the best. I can wear with long dresses, Capri, and slacks. I like that it keeps all parts of the body looking smooth and neat in my clothes. I have the medium and it is a perfect fit. Thank you for thinking of me.
