How do I care for my garments?

Caring for your garment as instructed below is essential to getting the full 4-6 months of wear. Regular washing prolongs the useful life of the garment and maintains the ideal compression characteristics.

Washing & Drying
To wash your garment, please place the garment in a lingerie/delicates bag and machine wash the garment on delicates setting in cold water using a gentle fabric detergent. Keep the garment in the delicates bag, tumble dry low until fully dry.  
 
Do Not:
  • Wash in hot water
  • Dry on high heat setting
  • Dry on any setting for an excessively long duration
  • Wring the garments dry
  • Hand wash
  • Dry clean
  • Use any chemical solvent or bleach, fabric softener or any other laundry additive
  • Use creams, oils, and lotions immediately prior to donning the garment
Doing any of the above can compromise the delicate nature of the fibers that make up your garment, can more rapidly deteriorate compression and lower the useful lifespan of the garment. For best results, we recommend rotating between 2 or more garments and washing the garments frequently in between use.

What's the best way to put on and take off my sleeve and glove?

HOW TO PUT ON AND TAKE OFF A SLEEVE:
Turn down the top of the sleeve so it’s folded over itself.Pull the sleeve over your hand until the end of the sleeve is at the pictured position on the wrist.Gently pull the rest of the sleeve evenly up over the arm to the armpit. Make sure the sleeve is equally spread over the whole arm and that there are no constrictions or wrinkles.To remove sleeve, hold the top of the cuff and pull down until it slips off your hand.

What compression classes do you offer?

We offer compression in 20-30 mmHg and 30-40 mmHg in arm sleeves, gauntlets, and gloves. We offer 15-20mmHg, 20-30mmHg, and 30-40mmHg in knee highs.

Compression class names vary regionally, in the United States 15-20 mmHg is Class 0, 20-30 mmHg is Class 1 and 30-40 mmHg is Class 2.

What sleeve length options do you offer?

Our sleeves come in a Short and a Long length. Please don’t be put off by the length names, we don’t have a “Regular” length anymore because we don’t believe that there is a standard arm length, just like there isn’t a standard arm size, by only offering a Short or Long option we hope it will inspire our customers to measure their arm and get the sleeve that will fit them the best. To determine length, measure your arm length from wrist to the top of the bicep; the Short sleeve length accommodates arms 37-44cm and the Long sleeve length accommodates arms 43-56cm. The length formally known at Regular is now called Long.

What size do I need?

Please visit our Size + Fit page to see detailed instructions on how to measure and fit for our garments.

What compression class do I need?

It is best to consult your doctor or lymphedema therapist about which level of compression is best to manage your swelling. A doctor or therapist will assess your arm for swelling and develop a plan with you to manage and/or reduce your lymphedema. Each plan is individually tailored for each patient, self-management lymphedema care often includes wrapping, manual lymph drainage massage and wearing a properly fitted compression garment.

15-20 mmHg or 20-30 mmHg is generally for preventative wear for those at risk for swelling and for minor swelling and 30-40 mmHg is for more severe edema.

Should I wear a gauntlet or glove with my arm sleeve?

When wearing a medical graduated medical compression sleeve it is best for lymphedema patients to protect their hand with a compression gauntlet or glove. If a sleeve is worn without a gauntlet or glove then the pressure from the sleeve can push lymphatic fluid into the hand instead of up toward your body. When you wear a sleeve and a glove or gauntlet together you can protect yourself against the risk of this happening. Please discuss this information with your doctor or therapist to decide whether a gauntlet or glove is suitable for you.

Why is my gauntlet/glove wrist loose?

Having double pressure in the wrist from the glove or gauntlet and the arm sleeve can result from improper graduation in the compression and increased swelling. That’s why the glove and gauntlet were specially designed to have no overlapping compression at the wrist when worn with a sleeve.

What is the DIVA Diamond Band?

A latex-free and silicone-free gripper applied directly to the top cuff of the sleeve. The DIVA Diamond Band helps the sleeve stay up and prevents rolling. All sleeves are available with or without the DIVA Diamond Band.

When should I wear my garments?

The amount of time and degree to which you wear your compression garments will depend on the severity of your lymphedema and the self-care program you’ve developed with your doctor and/or lymphedema therapist. If you do not have a self-care regimen developed, it is best to consult with your doctor or therapist to determine when and how often you need to wear your sleeve. We do not recommend that our garments are worn overnight.
