I don't think folks in general understand the importance of good compression garments. I read the document on your website when I first had surgery. I encountered severe issues with fluid and was looking for a garment that would help. I found it in Design Veronique! I just re-read the information yesterday to remind myself because I've had subsequent surgery and don't want to encounter any problems.
Hi, I had breast reduction surgery on march 19th of this year. My doctor said I was cleared to return to running...however...the pain is still there...so I was wondering if your company made a compression bra that I could wear along with my sports bra. The pain is associated with the up and down motion caused by running...I hope you have some idea. Thanks, Sarnia Hi Sarnia, Thank you for your email and interest in our breast wear collection. Here are some items that I suggest.

Because we manufacture and design garments at our headquarters in California, we can complete your custom garment order within 2 business days from purchase date.
Dear Mariko, I deeply appreciate all you have done to expedite shipping as I was so miserable in that ill-fitting garment. I am still a little out of it because of the liposuction and pain meds, but the new garment you recommended for me has made a world of difference. Thank you again for your help. You're the best!

QUESTION: I just had some abdominal surgery. My surgeon recommend that I should be in a high waisted, long legged, and zippered garment. I did some research into wearing this type of garment and I had heard that you can become comfortable with the support to the point where you will not want to be without being in a garment daily, can that happen? Tim ANSWER: Hi Tim,
Hi Mariko, Everything came out great! Thank you so much for all your help with sizing, alterations, and with getting my original order returned. Well it is 9 more days till my operation. Yikes! You have done such a wonderful customer service job! I will spread the work about Design Veronique garments. Thanks, Jannine K. Memphis, TN
Question: I had gastric bypass surgery and lost 165 pounds. Consequently, I needed a tummy tuck, breast lift, and arm lift. I’ve already had the tummy tuck. In two weeks I’m having the arm and breast lift. When I asked my doctor about wearing a compression garment, he said to buy an athletic bra and that he will wrap my arms in ace bandages. I will have to wear the ace bandages for two weeks, but then he says I can wear a tight pair of gym socks on my arms. Gym socks? Ace bandages? Do you have any suggestions for me?
Question: I had SmartLipo™ and a breast lift. My doctor put me in two garments but I would prefer to use just one. Can you recommend a product and help me figure out what size to buy? Answer: Congratulations on your surgery. I’m sure you are well on your way to looking and feeling fabulous! I would love to help you find exactly the right garment for your needs.
