Size Recommendation for Non-Zippered, 2nd Stage Garment
Running and Compression Bras
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.

Male Garment Question
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,
I had my baby 9 weeks ago and I’ve just returned to work. I had a c-section and still feel uncomfortable in my own skin. I feel like my stomach is hanging out and my c-section scar is still sensitive. Will any of your products still help me?
Congratulations on the birth of your child! I know from firsthand experience that 9 weeks postpartum, especially following a cesarean delivery, things are far from normal. And guess what, you and I are not alone either. Many women lack the sense of “held-togetherness” that they may have taken for granted before pregnancy and delivery.

Aesthetic Surgery After a Gastric Bypass Procedure
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?
I Need Help Selecting a Product
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.
If I Didn’t Have a C-Section, Are There Any Benefits From Wearing One Of Your Products?
Congratulations on the birth of your child! Women who give birth vaginally face an entirely different set of challenges than women who give birth by Cesarean Section. During pregnancy, labor, and birth, the symphysis pubis, where the right and left sides of the hips meet near the vaginal area, separates to varying degrees with the ultimate goal of passing a child from the uterus through the birth canal. Postpartum, some women can suffer a longer term, abnormal separation of the symphysis pubis resulting in pelvic girdle pain.
Can a postpartum body support garment help reduce my Cesarean scar?
Today, Cesarean scars are far smaller and heal faster than what our mothers may have experienced. A typical Cesarean incision is approximately 4-6” long and is placed horizontally across the bikini line. Although, the resulting scar is usually very small and easily concealed, many women are concerned with how visible their Cesarean scar may be.
Other than slimming down my post pregnancy belly, what are the other benefits I can expect from wearing a Design Veronique postpartum body support girdle?
During pregnancy and delivery women face extraordinary physiological changes. If that’s not challenging enough, after delivering a child, we are instantly expected to look after a newborn baby around the clock - and more often than not, the rest of the family, too.
Zippered vs. Non-Zippered Garments
One of the most common questions we get is, “What is the difference between a zippered and non-zippered compression garment?” This is a great question and I’d like to explain the benefits for both styles and the appropriate time to use them.
