These two words are not always associated together when wearing a lymphedema sleeve as they are normally flesh toned to blend in rather than stand out.
Some manufacturers have come to realize that some women want to make a fashion statement – or just a statement. Now you can see lymphedema sleeves in solid colors and even fancier ones with patterns to suit your outfit, mood or occasion.
One manufacturer has designed sleeves that are lighter weight but still have the same compression, are made of wicking fabric for summer or hot weather wear, and come in many fabulous patterns.
If you already have lymphedema, you will know what I am speaking about. You might as well make the best of a now lifelong management plan and have some fun. Enjoy exploring new options.
