EVERYDAY CARE

For post surgery use, we suggest purchasing two garments so that you can have a clean one ready at all times, in order to maintain continuous benefits of compression.

You may experience some bleeding and fluid leakage following surgery, so having an extra clean garment available will improve your comfort and hygiene. On average, many surgeons will recommend that you wear the garment at least four to six weeks post surgery.

 

HOW TO LOOK AFTER YOUR GARMENT

  • All Yoga products should be washed daily by hand, in limpid water with neutral soap or mild detergent that does not contain bleach or chlorine as it will break down the fibers of your garment and shorten its useful life.
  • Wash in warm water at maximum temperature of 30°C.
  • Machine washing is allowed but on a cool setting.
  • Wash your compression garment regularly to prevent oils and salts from the skin breaking down the fibres of the fabric.
  • To minimize blood stains, wash as soon as possible after the garment is soiled. Do not remove stains with solvents.
  •  Do not use fabric softeners as the “fatty” material in the softener attaches to the fabric. The fabric feels softer, but it builds up over time and reduces the ability of the fabric to manage moisture and breathe.
  • Please, do not tumble dry, twist dry, iron or dry clean the garments as this may lead to permanent alteration of their shape and a loss of elasticity.
  • They should be air dried, allowing the garment to dry naturally away from direct heat or sunlight.
  • Once it is dried, put the garment in the fridge (not the freezer) for 30 minutes as this allows fiber reconstitution.
  • Only wear the garment at room temperature.
  • Garments older than six months should be replaced. They will no longer have the original compression and may not be providing the valuable medical therapy you need.
  •  It is most effective to have more than one garment. It is useful to have one to wear and one to launder so that you may wear a garment at all times in the first few weeks.
  • All garments tend to lose some of their elasticity during daily wear. Alternate your garments to allow the elasticity to recover and prolong their effectiveness.
