How To Put On Your Compression Wear
Our garments contain a high percentage of lycra; be careful of fingernail punctures in the fabric. Seams and zippers are designed to be worn on the outside of the garment. Tags are labeled and face forward on the front side of all girdles. BodyShaper tags are located on the outside back of the garments. Breast wear tags are located inside the garment.
Stage One Compression Girdles and Shapewear: While seated, fasten the girdle up to slightly higher than your knees. Secure both the hook & eye and the zippers up to this area.While remaining seated, place both legs into the girdle and gently position the girdle into place. Then stand up and pull the girdle up, making sure to position the crotch opening as far up as possible.
Fasten the remaining hook & eye on one side only, and then carefully pull up that zipper. Please use extra caution to avoid catching the zipper on the inner facing and to avoid getting pulls in the material from your fingernails.
Now, fasten the hook & eye on the remaining side. This side will be somewhat more difficult to secure, and we recommend that someone be present to provide assistance. After the hook & eye have been secured, carefully zip up that side.
Stage Two Compression Girdles and Shapewear
Step into your compression wear garment and secure the crotch against your body. Then, pull down the legs. The secret is to gather the garment like you do pantyhose. Next, pull the garment up to your waist; the fit should be snug for best results. Extend the garment upward to under your bust or over your shoulders (depending on the style). Adjust straps if necessary. High waisted styles can be worn with or without straps. Each garment is designed to be worn long after you have fully recovered.
