Everyone experiences the feeling of compression differently, but your compression wear should feel comfortable. With the right fit, compression garments feel like a gentle hug. Nevertheless, compression garments are not regular clothes and therefore it is quite important to understand how to choose them and even how to put them on correctly.
HOW TO PUT ON COMPRESSION GARMENTS
FOR BODYSUITS, SHIRTS, OR LEGGINGS
Step into the garment one leg at a time. Gently pull up the garment to the body. Align the crotch opening as you pull the garment up. One by one close the hooks and/or zip the zipper until the garment is fully in place, as applicable. The last step is to pull up and adjust the shoulder straps.
FOR BRAS OR VESTS
Slide each arm into the arm holes or sleeves. Close the hook and eyes and/or zipper in front, use the middle row or the most comfortable setting to start. You can adjust to find the most comfortable position. After adjusting the front-close, adjust the shoulder straps to be even and in the most comfortable position.
FOR FACE MASKS
Place the chin in the chin cup (located with the vertical seam). Close the hook-and-loop closure over the head about 2" behind the forehead. Close the hook-and-loop closure behind the neck.
FOR ARM OR CALF SLEEVES
Open the garment at the widest part and pull it open to slide in your foot or hand. Pull up gently the arm or calf and ensure the sleeve is smooth and evenly stretched on the limb.
